This restaurant is located inside a beautifully restored 1800's waterfront warehouse. We had lunch there and the food was first rate, delicious! We look forward to our next visit to Savannah because a return trip here will be included.

Doesn’t look like much from the outside but inside it’s a nice pub-like atmosphere. I ordered the chicken Alfredo and my daughter ordered the chicken piccata. Both tasty and decent sized portions. The server was friendly and attentive.
