Alumni and friends of ABAC met at Spanky's to reconnect. The food was delicious, beverages refreshing, and a perfect atmosphere for the night. The staff was extremely attentive and made sure all the guests were served promptly. We'll visit there again!!

Great place to relax, enjoy the A/C, and have a good meal! My wife ordered the pizza and it was ok... My burger was great and my sons chicken parm with pasta was great.

Description
Family owned and operated since 1976, Spankys serves up the worlds best chicken finger! The story goes like this, in 1976, a few friends wanted to start a restaurant on River Street in Savannah. Then, the booming River Street we know today was only a dirt road, with only a few spots for dining on the waterfront. Enter two innovative friends who cut up a few pieces of tender, white meat chicken, battered and fried them to perfection, and said to each other 'hey, son, lets call them chicken fingers!' And so Spanky's was born, and its still run by the same man and his family and loyal wonderful staff today! Come on down and dine on a piece of Savannah history with us--we're waitin' on ya!
