Everything from the staff to the food was delicious! I especially love the cookie sample bar. The entire place is well decorated and kid friendly.

I have dined here three times and each time the restaurant had changed some major aspect of its approach. The food has been engaging and usually well prepared but even given its eclectic offerings, I am not sure which client base they are trying to reach. At the end of each meal I have been reasonable satisfied but not necessarily... More

The restaurant in the Byrd Cookie Store on Waters near the Oglethorpe Mall is a nice upscale dining option for folks on the south side of downtown. Tastefully decorated, start with tomato or lobster bisque, move on to an artistic beet salad with grilled shrimp and Italian Blue Cheese dressing or a cheeseburger or a haute dog with pimento cheese...

The food was wonderful. (The only mediocre part was the pecan pie). Other than that, the biscuits, the salad, and the main courses were exceptional. The service was top-notch and friendly, and the vibe and ambiance were great. I love the historical aspect of this restaurant. Highly recommended!

We used the Find a Table app to reserve our spot though when we arrived we were only the 2nd couple in the restaurant! Our appetizer was delicious...Arancini - Crispy fried risotto fritter in prosciutto basil cream sauce. I had the Byrd Burger and my husband had the Sprimp & Grits. Service, atmosphere, food - everything was wonderful. We couldn't... More

We were visiting a friend who brought us here, and we were quite happy. The appetizer was so wonderful, it made the rest of the meal seem a little less than extraordinary. To start with, we had the Arancini. This was three crispy fried risotto fritters in a prosciutto basil cream sauce. The cream sauce was one of the most... More

This restaurant was by far the BEST part of our trip to Savannah. We stumbled across it on Open Table and when we pulled up to the restaurant/bakery, we had no idea what to expect. The facility is gorgeous and well decorated. The food was out of this world amazing! We still talk about our entrée choices and wish we... More

We had brunch at this cool spot and the food was great. The complimentary biscuits and jam were spot on. Having Byrd's Cookie store & factory all in the same building adds so much character (and a great opportunity to snag some of the world's best cookies on your way out!). The walls are filled with historic pictures and there... More

I had lunch here last week and I can't wait to go back for dinner and for the Sunday brunch. I had the quinoa salad with roasted summer veggies. It was inspired! Light, but very satisfying. A taste adventure. I walked in just before their lunch time ended. But, no matter, I was welcomed like a long lost friend. The... More
