We made a reservation on Open Table but arrived 30 minutes early and they were able to seat us, of course it was on Tuesday night not a weekend. Service was great with Germain and food was great. We would go back again.

Wonderful service by Patrick. Offered me a small bite size sample of grits from our question before we ordered it. Blackened tilapia and cheese grits were very tasty. Good table view of river. Enjoyed this restaurant very much in Savannah.

Came here with a group of friends and they were able to accommodate all of us which was nice. Food was decent but nothing special. They have $5 margaritas and they aren't any good, taste very fake.
