    Alligator soul was outstanding! The food was so good and the service was very good. We had the tempura alligator as an appetizer, I had the beef filet and my mom had the drunken muscles and a cup portion of the shrimp and grits. The beef filet was cooked perfectly, melt in your mouth. It was served with hands down the best asparagus I’ve ever had. The drunken muscles and the sauce they were served in were outstanding. Everything we a was flavored amazing and cooked to perfect. This place seems like a hidden gem… you take the stairs down and discover an old timely look with great ambience and decoration that matches the name of the restaurant. This is a must go if you are visiting Savannah!!

    We ordered those ‚exotic‘ daily surprise dishes. Husband got antelope which was delicious, I ordered the Mahi Fish which unfortunately was way too spicy for that kind of fish… wish I ordered the scallops. Only three different dishes on the kids menu, wished there was one with fish. We definitely recommend trying the tempura alligator!!!

    The menu is pretty limited for those with dietary restrictions. However, they do have a vegetarian and vegan dish special and our server was as accommodating as possible. My husband enjoyed the candied alligator and wild special of the day. Prices are reasonable for the portion sizes and experience.

    Great experience from start to finish! Very cool and cozy feeling when you enter the restaurant… The bar and craft cocktails are awesome. Our server Bethany was funny, Charmaine and even introduced us to her fiancé John behind the bar… Would definitely recommend the red snapper and the classic shrimp and grits.

    It was our se one time at Alligator Soul. We returned because we had such a wonderful experience the first time. Our server Hannah was was splendid. She was kind, thoughtful. Interesting and well motivated in her job. We very much enjoyed her explanations of cocktails as well as the food on the menu. The meals we had were splendid as we expected. My wife had a bourbon flight and roasted mushroom salad and scallops. I had the alligator salad and the antelope. I have had antelope before but this preparation was outstanding. We had the summer beignets for dessert. We were not disappointed in the least. The atmosphere of Alligator Soul is a compliment to the great food and wonderful service of the restaurant. We will dine there anytime we come to Savannah. Howard and Mona Herman Venice, Florida

    Incredible food! We loved trying their specials and haven’t stopped talking about the food we ate there since. The restaurant should consider adding their alligator jalapeño poppers to the appetizer/small plate menu. One of them with the meal just wasn’t enough. Great dining experience.

    Simply perfect. I was told this was a MUST visit restaurant and that was 100% correct. Oysters for appetizer were delicious. My main course was divine and the homemade foccacia bread with homemade 🧈 was sinful. Great service and well worth every penny. Elegant dining, affordable meals and classy atmosphere.

    First night of our vacation in Savannah. Great atmosphere, attentive service, if anything too many choices and since they have smaller portions of many of their items we were able to sample several of them. From the Strawberry Salad to the Shrimp and Grits and Alligator Trio and Gumbo along with the Oyster appetizer, Diver Scallops entree and Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pie it was all incredible. Alligator Soul is a must. The staff were amazing.

    This was perhaps the best meal I've ever had! The ambiance, service, and food was absolutely perfect. We had oysters to start, the bread and butter was insanely good, I had the shrimp and grits -- to die for -- my friends had the filet and the mussels, both amazing. We shared a side of the alligator Mac n cheese, bc why not. Then we finished with Banana beignets and chocolate cake. We rolled ourselves home and are happy as could be. Just a perfect meal from start to finish!
