Ate lunch today. Staff all around were very sweet and attentive. Building was very nice. More child friendly than online made it seem. Children booster seats & kids menu. Favorite was green fried tomatoes- to die for!

After a long drive to Savannah, this was our first dining spot. Great location on the river. Excellent service, and great food. If you like a good margarita, try the pirate's margarita.

We both had the stuffed flounder. It was very good. They put it on pasta that was bland, but neither of us ate much of the pasta. The asparagus was delicious. The dinner was $23, so it was reasonable. The service and food was quick....More
