My husband and I had lunch here on the balcony. The view is nice for watching the ships sail by. Our food was good. It seems like it might be a crowded dinner place

Johnny was our shucker and waiter last night. Enjoyed his conversation and his friendly personality. He shared his knowledge with us and southern gentleman hospitality. The oysters were fresh and the oyster shots amazing.

We were so excited to check this place out. The wait for a table was 30 minutes, not bad for a Friday. The first table was so tiny and thrown against the wall. So we asked to move. Then the food took forever as we...More

They had a great selection of oysters from the raw bar. There is a bit of a "smell", but we sat downstairs and I think it is from the raw bar. Very friendly bar tenders and good food!

Ready for a good meal of southern seafood, we were put on a waiting list and told that we could wait in the bar-that it would be 20-30 minutes. After 45 minutes, we went back to find that they had "forgotten" us on the list....More

Not sure. I would call.
I'm from the S.E. coast going to Savannah in Aug for my wifes B.D. Where is there a crab house? I mean some place you can sit and eat blue crabs maybe just on old news pappers like back in day and yes a few cold ones to wash down the old bay. Thanks jb

Fiddlers seemed a bit more formal and pricey. Hopefully a local or a hotel concierge may have more extensive knowledge and be able to steer you in the right direction.
