Our visit on Saturday was extremely enjoyable. It was my daughter's birthday (she is now 33) and we had a great time.
There was one minor thing and that was that the Calamari, when it got to our table, was not hot at all. My husband only ate half of it and he loves Calamari. Other than that, excellent.

The wine list had many options
The wine list had many options to choose from and the fish was very fresh. The decoration and atmosphere was very different-nothing I have ever seen before. I had the chicken and waffles for an appetizer, they were outstanding!

Very nice place. Great view
Very nice place. Great view of the river. Food is good and reasonably price. We had a great dinner - wine prices quite good. I think this would be evn better for a quick lunch or mid afternoon meal.

Overall we like this restaurant.
Overall we like this restaurant. The only complaint I have is that the timing of when the food comes out is always off. My husband and I ordered an appetizer and our entrees at the same time last year and our entrees came out about five minutes after the appetizer was served. This year, we did the same but added a soup and my soup came out at the same time as the appetizer and then our food came out a few minutes later, while we were still eating the appetizer. The timing has got to get better and/or the wait staff needs to hold on putting in entree orders until the appetizer has been served.

We had Sunday brunch here. The food was good and the ambience was very nice.
I had the eggs benedict with rock potatoes which was good.
Hubby went with the cajun omelet with rock potatoes also quite good.

Our experience here was excellent.
Our experience here was excellent. We had a large party of 10 and everyone had a wonderful meal. Our table was ready as soon as we arrived and our server was very attentive the entire night. The chef's specials were outstanding as were items from the main menu. The artwork and ambiance are also what makes this restaurant special. I would definitely eat here again the next time we are in Savannah.

Special celebration success...
We were celebrating our daughter's sixteenth birthday with a trip to Hilton Head. Rocks on the River was recommended for a place to have a special meal and we are glad we followed up on the advice. We found the atmosphere very relaxing and the staff attentive and friendly. They acknowledged the celebration immediately and took special care to make it a special celebration. The food was excellant, great appetizers and entrees. I would recommend the mussels and fried green tomatoes for appetizers. It was a great experience and I would recommend this restaurant for an outstanding experience.

high class hotel dining
Excellent river front location. Ecclectic crowd. Food was good. Just good. Very hip ambience. NOT your typical riverfront tourist trap!
5/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our server Liz was fantastic. Her recommendations were great and she made sure the order was perfect actually correcting a salad order that wasn't just right even though I was fine with it. She made sure it was actually what I ordered. Great experience.

This was my first time in Savannah, Ga. This restaurant had spectacular view and food to match them.

The food was excellent, and
The food was excellent, and the setting was wonderful. You do have to wait for a while on your food. Make sure to go there when you are not starving. Lucky for us we weren't so we were able to have a good time.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great atmosphere and good food. Service was bery good as well. We went there for a date night but ended up dining with some friends. They enjoyed the restaurant as well. If the weather is nice they can open a series of overhead door/windows so there is a great view of riverstreet and the river.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for lunch on a Sunday and it was moderately busy but with a reservation we were seated immediately. We had a nice private area to sit in which was good. Food was very good and everyone in our group was very happy with the meal. Appetizers took longer than expected and the server recognized that and brought our 1 year old a plate of crackers because she noticed he was getting antsy. That attention to detail is very nice and we really appreciated it. Will go again for sure!
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was great and Savannah tea highly recommendable
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food - We had the calamari
Great Food - We had the calamari and chicken/waffles as appetizer. Burgers and Pizza was delicious. Pear Martini's very tasteful. We were there to celebrate a special occasion with Family. Had reservations, but arrived early and they were able to accommodate us. Service was great and the waitress was able to answer all the questions about how the food was prepared.

Food was very good. Service
Food was very good. Service could have been a little better. Drinks kept running empty and we had to chase waitress down to get refills.
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good. Everything is a la carte therefore a little pricey. Seemed to take a while to get our food, but everything was cooked to order. There were 6 in our party. We all got steak. The mashed potatoes were very good! Would go back but only on special occasions. Nice view of River Street.
6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose to eat outside for the beautiful view, but also because inside the restaurant seemed noisy. Food was delicious! Live music was good and not intrusive to conversation.

Rocks on the River...Rocks!!
Don't misunderstand my use of the term "Rocks." This is not a a party-central bar/restaurant scene. It's more accurately a water level vilew of the the Savannah River as you dine with menu choices that are sure to please a wide variety of tastes. Don't know about you, but I truly enjoy not just good food, but experiencing something out of the ordinary in the process of dining. In this case, passing freighters, tour ships and private yacts are so close, you'd swear you could reach out and touch them. Ohhh, did I stray from the core issue, that is, the quality of the menus and food? That was all A++!!
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great restaurant. Right on river street so it was a little hectic, but all in all not anything unbearable. Great food, and overall great dining experience.
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I had a great time at the Rock. First time there and it was great.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Place On The River
Fried Green Tomatoes, She Crab Soup, Jalapeño Corn Bread, Southern Shrimp & Grits! What else is there to say - True Southern Cooking! And great service as well!

Happy Anniversary to Us!
My husband and I visited Rocks on the River at the Bohemian Hotel in Savannah for our second anniversary. Not only did the menu provide a variety of elegant dishes, but I also found it easy to find items that were nutritious and worked with my diet plan. The view of the sunset over the river was perfect and I was able to enjoy a romantic evening with my man without the guilt of "over-doing" it on calories and price. We found the expense to be very appropriate to the experience and quality and will definitely be returning!
7/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great time. Good food, great company, good service. Our requests were handled without issues.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We recently made a reservation at rocks, and it was excellent. This has always been one of my favorite spots for dinner. With my family in town, we wanted to be sure we had dinner at rocks. I made an early reservation, since we had two young children. Our server was excellent and knowledgable. Food was amazing as always. Looking forward to my next meal here!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very enjoyable evening.
A very enjoyable evening. The food was great and the service was excellent.

Dinner on the river
A great place for a nice dinner. Moderately priced. Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Don't miss the associated rooftop bar for before and after dinner drinks.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food but very expensive
We had a fun time but it was very hard to talk to our group because of the size of the table and noise level. The food was good but not $140 for two people good. The server was very attentive and I would have given her 20% because she was good but I don't like having a tip added into my check even though it's common for some restaurants.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding!! A must go!!
Five of us dined together and everything we ordered was fantastic! The food was fresh, tasty and excellently presented. Two of us ordered the lobster mac and cheese and shrimp and grits, another the dumplings, and two shared a Margherita pizza. The shrimp and grits were great. Our waiter, Nick suggestions for our appetizers and wine were great. The weather was beautiful so the big garage doors were open. I would highly recommend trying Rocks on the River if you haven't already. Great choice for any occasion.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner out on the town
The city's best Fried Green Tomatoes (with goat cheese, yum!) paired with a lovely atmosphere always make this a great place to eat. The service is always very good - Friday nights meal was no exception. Our server Liz was attentive, knowledgeable, and had a lot of patience for my cranky father.
I did try a new dessert too - the Praline Ice Box Cake... and pretty sure I could eat that and nothing else the rest of my life and be very happy. DELICIOUS! Must try!

Dinner Didn't Disappoint
We took our friends for dinner; this was their first time, and our second.The food was very good. Ambiance was good. My guests commented that the fried green tomatoes were the best they've had in the area. Service was excellent; our server was very pleasant, and timed her appearances very well. The staff was well dressed. Our entrees were also very good. The manager stopped by our table to check how the dinner was going, which a lot of restaurants don't do anymore. The only small negative was that the desserts were just average. The cheese cake and lava cake tasted store bought. Please snaz them up. If you do, I would give the restaurant a 5-star rating.
Bottom line: I would highly recommend this restaurant, and I intend to go back.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing must go!!
Celebrating our engagement and lets just say it was great! Started off with drinks on the roof great atmosphere and set up! Then went back downstairs for dinner and was given to free glasses of champagne (was great) the service was awesome everywhere in the restaurant! Now to the food I had the aged steak filet and let's just say best steak ever that taste and texture flavor amazing never have I ever said compliments to the chief but both me and my now fiancée had too! She had the salmon and it was great to full of taste. Anytime I come to Savannah I will make sure we come back!!

Special Night Out
We dined at the Rocks for the first time -- and what a delightful surprise. Both the food and service were superb. My filet topped anything I've ever had at Ruth's Chris!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for date night. Food and service were excellent.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed our dinner, the variety of dishes offered was great, every one in our group was a pick eater, and we each found something wonderful! Also the chicken and waffle sliders are a must!!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner by the river
This place has great food and while we had a great dinner, we noticed the restaurant is a hot spot for bachelorette dinners so if that's not you scene-beware. Our server was the best and after dinner, the rooftop for drinks is very nice.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great (but not for everybody)
Been here a couple of times during visits to town, usually a weekend night. The food is very good, well-prepared, with friendly, quick service. No complaints there. I just wanted to note that the noise level is high (the survey euphemistically calls it "energetic" -- I call it LOUD), which may make it unsuitable for people wishing to have a conversation face-to-face. Each time I've been there it seems that Rocks is a favorite place for bachelorette and sorority parties -- i.e., groups of young women in "energetic" spirits. So be forewarned. If you're looking for good food AND a romantic or otherwise interpersonal interlude, you might want to pick a weeknight or go very early.

Savannah River View
We were seated at table 82/1 inside the restaurant but open to the outside. The view of the people strolling along River Street was nice but the view of the traffic on the Savannah River was incredible. Our server, April seemed a bit of a novice but she was giving it her best shot. The food was good - more of a comfort food style - tasty and filling. My scallops were well prepared and my wife's shrimp & grits were very good. A very nice meal in a great location.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fireworks and dinner
Rocks on the River was a great spot to have dinner prior to the firework display on the Savannah River. We chose to sit outside to see the river. Food was great and service was great. Prices made it a "special occasion" or "date" night stop. Did not enjoy the heavy traffic outside. Will sit inside next time.

Great addition to the river front!
The Bohemian is a great addition to Savannah. Rocks on the River was better than most, but it didn't blow us away. The prices were very reasonable (even for surf and turf). The seating arrangement makes for uncomfortable dining - many of the tables are along a both on one side, so the other person has to sit in a chair across from you. Hard to be romantic with this type of set up. The rooftop bar is amazing, and I'd highly recommend. It's beautiful in the daytime and very busy at night - definitely the place to be!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took wife for her 50th birthday. The food was excellent and the service was even better. No one answered without saying "its my pleasure". Staff was friendly and polite. When they found out it was the wife's birthday they brought her a chocolate cake with ice cream and wrote Happy 25th birthday on the plate. Very very nice evening. After the meal we went upstairs to the lounge and enjoyed the view of the river and the bridge. Service was just as good on the roof as well. I have no complaints other than we had to leave.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the Surf and Turf. Steak was very tenders and juicy, crab cakes were wonderful. Asparagus was steamed just right where it was still a little crunchy, not soggy or undercooked. Had a cappuccino and Molten Chocolate cake for dessert, both were very good.
Would definitely go back.

Special for celebrating
My son and I had been to Rocks on the River about a month ago with a group. We loved the food, service and ambience and knew it would be perfect to celebrate his birthday (21st) with my husband and daughter. We were not disappointed. We had a wonderful time and one of our best family meals ever! Thank you Rocks on the River.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We greatly enjoyed our experience at Rocks on the Roof and on the River. We came early for drinks on the roof and watched the sunset then headed down to have dinner. The service was great and the food was delicious. We highly recommend the mussels but our entree, the Osso Bucco, was not our favorite. It was prepared well and the sides were good, the meat was just a little too fatty for our taste. The cheesecake definitely made up for it though!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Over all Very Good!
We were headed to Savannah for a girls weekend, so I started researching restaurants. This one fit the bill for what we were looking for. Wide variety of items and prices on the menu to fit every pallet and budget. The décor was modern contemporary with a little bit of a rustic feel. The Hostess was a little rude and not very pleasant, but the waitress we had more then made up for it. She was great. The food was also very good. Afterwards we headed upstairs to the roof top bar to relax with a couple of cocktails. Would definitely recommend.

Surprise B-day Dinner
I made a reservation online for my beautiful girlfriend's birthday. Within the special notes section I had mentioned that it was her birthday and that this was a surprise dinner. I asked if it possible to have a table that was romantic and as secluded as possible with a birthday message and an type of flower arrangement. Rocks on the River definitely stepped up to the plate. The set us up at a nice two seat table near the bay window over looking the river. On the table was single carnation with a message of Happy Birthday. The server was great! He was timely, personable and knowledgeable of the menu. (both food and beverage) On top of them doing this they also treated my special lady to a dessert of her liking. A definite must go!
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great! I ordered
The food was great! I ordered the shrimp and grits. However, it did take an unusually long time to receive our order. Would definitely come back and recommend to others.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Rocks on the River was nice, but very noisy. The food was good but expensive for what it was. They have garage-style doors which were open to their patio, but it was coolish and we felt chilled. Overall, about a B.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We typically don't have great
We typically don't have great service here, but this time it was absolutely fantastic. The mussels and charcuterie board are both outstanding.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went for a Thanksgiving dinner with my boyfriend. We arrived 10 minutes early but were seated right away. Each course came quickly and everything was delicious, especially the sweet potato bisque. The service was great and everyone was very friendly.
