    We thought the food was pretty darn tasty, but the beer was the highlight of the event. For $10 you can try 8 beers, a generous serving of each. The only issue was our server who kept disappearing. Take the haunted pup crawl which starts at Moon River after you eat.

    We were HIGHLY impressed with our experience. We had a reservation at 7, but got there early and we're sat right away. Our waitress was amazing- knowledgable about the beers and the food. We got the beer sampler and she was able to tell us about each beer. I noticed that the servers really helped each other out- the server in the section next to ours helped our server by clearing some of our plates and bringing out our appetizer. It's nice to see teamwork! My husband and I both used to be servers, and we were very impressed with everything we saw. We will definitely be coming back!!

    My sisters and myself where visiting Savannah this week. We were looking for unique and haunted places to eat. We checked out the menu on lane and decided to made reservation. When we got to the restaurant and received our menus, we were disappointed to see the menu was different from the one on line. There was nothing on the restaurant menu we wanted. We ended up leaving and going some where else. Very disappointed.

    Stopped in for dinner (we were a group of 5 so we had reservations). We were asked if a high top would be ok, we declined. Hostess had no idea what to do with us since we didn't want that table. She tried setting up another table, but eventually we were seated in the back of the restaurant. That was fine, area was quiet and our server did a good job of taking care of us. Nothing on the menu stood out for any of us. Meals were good, just nothing to write home about.

    It is disingenuous to list an item in the sandwich section of a menu if that item is not a sandwich. Layering enough melted cheese on top of an open-faced sandwich so that the bread is a soggy mess renders it useless. The crabcake melt sounded great on paper, but what came out was 50% melted cheese (so much that it was served in a casserole dish to keep it from flowing off the plate!). It could have been saved if the crab cake was any good, but that too fell short. Between the inability to pick up the "sandwich" and lackluster crab cake, this dish was an all around failure.

    We come back EVERY trip to Savannah for lunch and their delicious beer. Unfortunately, food is not as good as it once was, and we always order the same things - Kristine's Favorite is the hubby's staple and first time I've ever heard him disappointed with Moon River. Luckily, they have a great beer scene, so we'll be back for that - will just pass on the meal next time. Highly recommend the Apparition Ale!

    My husband made our reservation at 8 pm on a Sat. night, it was packed, thankfully I used this site to book a table, wait was over an hour. Any way, I wanted a simple, house salad with grilled chicken and my husband ordered the turkey sandwich, not only did it take one full hour for the food to come out, my chicken was undercooked and still pink! I sent it back, took another 10-15 mins to come back out. The waitress never apologized nor took it off the bill. The server hardly came back to our table, worst service and bad food, no thanks.

    First time back in several years....ambiance good for a neiborhood type bar...Food was good and prices very reasonable for location. Server was apparently (hopefully) new, did not know menu items or bar offerings. Server also was extreme flustered when it came time to settle account and had difficulty splitting (halfing) check between couples.....ended up with 4 individual checks. I would recommed this place to friends and will return myself.

    We were super excited to eat here. We did a tour a few years back and wanted to revisit. I called before to make sure they were kid friendly. The lady said yes, there were other children there and offered a kids menu. As far as the adult menu, not to much of a choice. And kind of pricey. The atmosphere was good and out sever was great but I would not go back because of the food.

    Moon River was close to our hotel so gave it a try. Our server was very nice and the nachos were tasty! Only down side was the hostess, she was not so happy that we wanted a low table instead of a high-top. She acted very put out by our request which was a turn off for me.

    Although this place looks like it would be good it wasn't at all. Maybe because we ate at some great places in savannah this one just didn't stack up. I had a burger which is hard to get wrong but somehow it was as flavorless as you could get. Not sure why this place gets such great reviews.

    Our server was terrible. I ordered a beer and she brought it to the wrong table. She didn't ask my date if he wanted another beer. When she finally realized her mistake we were mostly done with out meal. Salmon was over cooked and overly salty. My dates ribs were less than desirable. I would not return.

    We had dinner after a soccer tournament with a large group of people. The food was actually better than expected and the servers did a really good job with the large number of tables we had. We tried unsuccessfully to reserve a section of the restaurant knowing we had so many people but they would not allow it. As a result we had individual reservations for large tables. While we were all together there were other people in our section who were less than pleased with our noise level. In addition the hostess was less than cordial as we all came in at different times. However despite the chaos of seating everyone was pleased with their food. Good beer selection. Would definitely return if we are back in savannah.

    We ordered a few beers & bottle of wine. The wine finally came with 3 of the 4 glasses we asked for. It took another 10 minutes to get the last glass. We had several food runners offer us food we didn't order, and eventually 2 of our 7 orders came. A little while later, our server came over to tell us we got someone else's food, and he had to take it away. We asked to speak with a manager to let us keep it since we had eaten some of it, and it was wasteful to just throw it away. The manager never came over. The remaining 5 orders came out missing things and at varying speeds with the last dinner arriving almost 45 minutes after the first. In addition, our bills were completely messed up, and server wasn't helpful at all.

    The beer is very tasty and is well worth a couple of visits. The food on the other hand, sounded creative and tasty on the menu. However, each of the four items we ordered were mediocre at best. Three out of the four were Luke warm when they arrived. As the menu outside on the patio is quite a limited menu, we chose to eat inside with the expectation of a better food experience. In hindsight, we should have sat on the patio or by the outdoor bar to enjoy the great atmosphere, live duo playing music, and enjoyed the beer. Pretty sure that had we ordered from the limited outdoor menu that we could not have been anymore disappointed by the 'patio menu food as we were by the full restaurant food. Lesson learned-come here for the flavorful beer.

    We were in town for the weekend and had been out shopping all day. We saw the outdoor patio and live band so we looked up the restarurant on Urban Spoon and made a reservation. Unfortunately we were not aware that the patio menu and the inside menus are very different so we had to sit inside. The food was fine and the service was great, but being that we were a group of girls in town and really wanted to sit outside and listen to the live music. Two of us in the group are vegetarian so our options were a bit limited and the server was very accommodating for us. I thought the options were varied and not the same thing as you get everywhere else.
