First I must say our server Patrice was absolutely great! The food was amazing as well. Everything from the fried green tomatoes to the scallops to the shrimp po'boy was delicious! I will be back here. Next time I will try the shrimp and grits which one of my friends had.

My food was cold and tasteless. My fish tasted frozen. My daughter had the fettacinni alfredo that tasted like watered down cheese sauce. My husband the special, snapper, which he said was good. Bread was good. Restaurant is gorgeous.

The restaurant has a lovely view and lively feel, the paper on the tables is very frustrating as it keep flying up and in the way, I finally tore it off. I had the filet and grilled shrimp and it really had no flavor. The steak was overcooked. I just was disappointed for the price and flavor so wouldn't return.

We were served cold food after a very long wait! The food was good but, cold.... I will probably not visit the restaurant again when in Savannah, disappointed that I spent the amount of $$ for the food and had to actually buy something else to eat.

Lobster and crab bisque is really memorable. Worth it just for that. On River street so in the middle of the action and nice view. Entrees were fine, but not memorable. Staff very friendly with good service. This is decent if you want something on the River and walkable from a downtown hotel.

The dish I ordered was recommended by the server and I was told it was prepared a certain way. When I received it, the dish was totally different and wasn't good. I hardly ate any of it and let the server know it wasn't as she described and it was salty. There was nothing offered to rectify the situation and I just paid and left. Will not come again.

Arrived before our reservation time due to a big storm that drove everyone inside for shelter. They nicely seated us early. Food and service were first-class. Try the Georgia Peach Margarita for your cocktail. Fried green tomatoes are a do not miss. Good views and ambiance.

This is a beautiful restaurant, in an excellent location. Unfortunately, the food was only okay. Nothing to write home about. No one at my table of 7 was very impressed - pretty bland. I had clams on linguine.... There wasn't much flavor. I've had better at chain restaurants in Kansas!
However, the waitress was wonderful, the beer on tap was local (and delicious) and it was nice.
Second review - Very good again.
Good service and very good seafood menu, decent but not extensive wine menu and unique ambiance. Right on the waterfront so expect ships of all sizes going right past the windows. Very small outdoor area right on the walkway so would recommend indoor seating.
Steamed oysters (overly steamed) that were almost disintegrated. Salad swimming in dressing. Undercooked steamed shrimp served with ketchup. Waiter with an attitude. I had a few bites, gave up, paid my bill and walked across the street to get a burger at Five Guys. Waste of $50.
Perfect for my family!
My oldest daughter's favorite restaurant. Only thing she wanted to do for her 21st birthday. We don't drink, so I can't rate the bar, but the food is perfect! She says they have the bet crab cakes anywhere. I think they have the best filet. So worth the 80 mile drive.
Lovely Anniversary Dinner
This restaurant was lovely for an anniversary dinner. Our server started off wonderful, but got a bit slow towards the end of the night. We had the Oysters Rockefeller, Lobster and Crab Bisque (to die for), Paella, and Grouper with Blue Crab. All were delicious! I was disappointed because they ran out of a lot of key menu items (such as the Flounder, which was what I really wanted). However, the atmosphere was wonderful and the food we did have was great!
