    The food and ambience was fabulous. Our server Jennifer, fresh from breaking her wrist in two places just a few days earlier, was exceptionally helpful and courteous. Anyone looking for a terrific restaurant should go to Alligator Soul.

    My husband and I ate here during our recent visit in Savannah. In our opinion (and we have eaten in 5* restaurants all over the world), this is one of the best restaurants we have eaten in, ever. The food was truly exceptional, from the amuse bouche to the appetizers to the deserts. The chef here is truly a genius! Andrew was our waiter and impressed us with impeccable service and excellent knowledge of all the dishes being served. The decor and ambience are both relaxing and unique; all in all an exceptional dining experience that we would recommend to anyone looking for a high-end dining establishment. Very reasonably priced also for what you get. We will definitely be back and already look forward to our next visit!

    Love the idea that you can get the gumbo in 3 sizes so you can get a taste of it. Was very good. The alligator fritters were super light and puffy: awesome! Great ribeye and antelope for dinner plates: both cooked to perfection and excellent tastes. Affordable wine selection too. Will come back!

    I love this place and come here every time I visit Savannah. Food is incredible, outstanding wine and drink selection and an ambiance that can’t be beat. Why do a chain when you can try something unique with a character all it’s own? I highly recommend, especially if you have a hot date!

    I have previously eaten at Alligator Soul with friends while visiting Savannah. I was in town for a meeting last week and, unexpectedly, had an evening to myself. Fortuitously, I managed to pick up a late reservation for one that evening. The server handled my dinner with grace and the kitchen, as usual, provided well prepared and creative takes on gorgeous ingredients. The restaurant gets 5 gold stars for treating a single diner well. Thank you.

    The server was very good, the ambiance is fun. The food was only okay. The bread and butter were really good, the salad was okay, my steak (little Hilbo) was a bit tough (at medium) and needed more crunch on the outside, my fries came out cold and soggy, but the server did replace them. They needed more salt, which was not on the table, and I expected some sort of housemade sauce (ketchup or mayo or aioli) to come with them, but it didn't. I got the Brussels sprouts with bacon, which were okay, but needed more crunch, flavor, and salt. The banana beignet dessert was okay...too much fried wonton. My first cocktail was fruity and good. My second one was The Duke and it was NOT good. I was too exhausted to bother asking for them to remove it from the bill at that point, but I really wish I had. I would say it's overpriced for what it is, but it's decent.

    So much to choose from here. The alligator Mac ‘n cheese was excellent. The Antelope was a little chewy and a little bland. But it was aided by the sauce and the accompaniments, all of which were outstanding. Service was outstanding. I’ll be a little less adventurous on my next visit.
