Description: For over 90 years, Johnny Harris Restaurant has been a staple of Historic Savannah dining. Three public dining rooms: the "Kitchen", the "Ballroom" with high starlit ceiling, and the Maple Room Tavern all provide an eclectic atmosphere for your dining enjoyment. The signature BBQ sauces are a great compliment to the famous pit-smoked items, and the secret recipe fried chicken is not to be missed. Family ownership gives this restaurant an intimate feel despite it's size, and the restaurant cookbook, penned by Julie D. Lowenthal, is a must take home keepsake. Private dining room bookings are available as well as adjacent banquet facilities with seating up to 200.

I would give this place a 5 star review as I loved this place growing up. We always sat in the "kitchen" area as the dining room back then was jacket only. Now I don't think it matters. I loved the turkey club,the fried chicken, boneless southern fried chicken plate, and the bbq.
But last time I went was 6 months ago(first time in over 3 years), the food was terrible. The club had one slice of deli turkey on it and it was a half inch thick. Tomato slice to match. Carey Hillard's still seem to have held up compared to this place.
