    First time ever leaving a review. Supposedly upscale, booked for anniversary dinner. They seated a man wearing flip flops and a basketball jersey next to us mid meal. He proceeded to open a full sized laptop and watch a basketball game throughout the meal. Manager just blamed his hostess for seating them. No attempt to compensate after notified. Food and service was good but won’t be back

    Had to try Alligator Fritters. Presentation was great. Sauces were a nice compliment. Frog legs were delicious! They were crispy without being tough. Sides were nicely done. The venison was very tough. The sauce was rich and flavorful. The special swordfish was also very good.

    There is one restaurant I always try to go to when I come to Savannah and it’s alligator soul. There is so many good things to eat that hopefully each time I come I will get to try a new one. I’m never disappointed and on a hot savanna day, it’s nice to be in a cool comfortable location with some great food and great service

    What happened to my favorite Savannah restaurant? Please bring back the Hilbo! I had the duck (because the Hilbo is no longer on the menu) and my friend had the fish. The duck was forgettable and the fish was raw.

    Best restaurant in Savannah for sure. The wild game specials are unique and always a taste treat. Best trained staff you will find make the experience special. The gator fritters are the only gator I will eat; no rubber tires here.

    Amazing dining experience. One of the most eclectic restaurants I’ve ever dined. Our server, Hanna was absolutely outstanding. Very knowledgeable and educated…wonderful personality. Her descriptions of the food and various drinks/bourbons was spot on. She’s one of the best servers I’ve ever had. My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. We had the charcuterie board. Unbelievable. The hummus with black ants, bone marrow, and artisan cheeses were explosions of flavor and so unique. I had the Antelope special and it was melt in your mouth terrific. 5-stars everywhere. One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. If you come to Savannah, we highly recommend.

    Five stars all the way! Fabulous food, service, and atmosphere! My dining partner and I had the fish special, which was blackened redfish, and it was the best we ever had. Alligator Boudin balls for an appetizer was awesome and amazingly the best beignets we've ever had and we've been to Café Dumond for dessert. Sarah, our server , Was charming and checked in on us without being intrusive. Although from Alabama, she still gave us that southern charm to go along with . terrific Southern cuisine

    We grabbed dinner at the bar on our first visit, and had the carving board and two entrees (the duck, and the alligator crabcakes) along with some wonderful cocktails. We enjoyed it so much that we came back just two nights later with another person so they could experience it, again getting the carving board and cocktails, but different entrees (the men got the day boat fish and I got the wild boar pasta). I will probably be thinking about that wild boar pappardelle for the next six months. It was one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. I tried the other meals as well, and everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and beautifully presented. I don't get as much out of the carving board as the guys since I don't really do the bone marrow part (which I think is kind of the star of the board), but the rest of the pieces, especially the honeycomb and lavash, but even the ant-covered hummus, are exceptional. This is one of the more innovative restaurants I've been to, with a professional yet cozy atmosphere and perfectly knowledgeable staff. I appreciate that the bartenders and wait staff are courteous and witty, but they still leave you alone to enjoy your conversations and your food. The cocktails are incredibly well made with such fun variants. This is not an inexpensive date night option, but it will absolutely be at the top of our list for special occasions and to experience new specials and creative cocktails! I only hope they don't get rid of the wild boar pasta because that dish is LIFE.

    The food was awful. Imagine boiled grits, shrimp, and scallop with zero seasoning. The server said the scallops were the size of her palm but they were the same small ones everyone has. Overall awful service, no attention to time or detail. Our appetizer came out along with bread and hors d'oeuvre all at the same time. Then we waited 45 minutes for dinner and it arrived bland & had clearly been sitting. It was our anniversary dinner and we wanted to celebrate. Worst $200 I ever spent.

    A very creative menu. If you like to explore a variety of cuisine, this is the restaurant for you. Excellent service in a unique setting. Great for a special occasion. We did feel that this restaurant is somewhat overpriced, so it may be a challenge to your pocket book. Extras like cocktails, wine, coffee and dessert can quickly add up.

    If you want to be a little more adventurous in your dining, this is the restaurant for you. We started with alligator fritters, they were very good. We moved on to the gumbo, which had a unique style but delicious. I went the safe route choosing the duck and I wasn't disappointed. My husband chose the Kangaroo, it was surprisingly delicious, they marinated it with brown sugar to take away any gaminess.I highly recommend Alligator Soul.
