Dependable quality food, in a cozy setting. Great location allows access to downtown events. Reasonable prices for the entrees and wine. If you haven't, give it a try.

Just OK - food was okay, staff was not responsive when entering. Kind of felt us as the customer were a necessary inconvenience. Not what I expected for the area and can’t think of a reason to return.

Osso bucco was not very tender and was fairly fatty. Very good service, and the rest of the meal was fine.

Unfortunately the server had not been trained to provide an excellent customer service experience. Re: Do not count on B Matthews website menu alignment with their actual in house dining offering. They described a 1/2 carafe of wine on web that was available with a fromage platter and accoutrements. They did not have the wine, the server did not offer a solution nor did management. The only thing that both server and management stated was they were in process of changing their menu. This is not something a customer wants to hear that was getting ready to spend $150! Not a good experience. Teach and train your staff to understand the meaning of the word, accoutrement. It's not cheese! Our daughter waited at an upper end pizza establishment and had to pass management's test on ingredients in sauces, dressings and pizza offerings. We left for to Chart House on the River where we are never disappointed with our dining experience. B Matthews get a dedicated webmaster and appreciate your customers enough to at least add a comment online that menu is under transition for x week. Or, better yet, just stock or at least offer a substitute acceptable to customer. This is just common sense.

Everything about this little gem of a restaurant was wonderful. Fried green tomatoes, scallops and shrimp and grits for husband: everything was wonderful.

The Hilton Doubletree recommended B. Matthews to us, and we walked there. The ambiance and service were fine, but the food wasn't anything special. They ran out of bread, which was just plain white. The best thing I tasted was their honey butter. I ordered the Buddha bowl and it was dry and lacked flavor, so I mixed in the remaining honey butter on the table. I also tried my husband's lamb special and it was better, but our friend's osso bucco was surprisingly unremarkable, (possibly just needed a little salt), the mushroom soup was a little too creamy for my taste, and again, just good.

Kale salad was great but asked for it as a starter, and it came with my meal. Server did not stop by between order and arrival of food. Everyone seemed to enjoy what they ordered.

My wife and I visited for breakfast. The food was hot and truly southern! The service was great and courteous. The building itself was a beautiful place - like most of historic Savannah. I'd go here again and again.

Went for lunch/brunch with a party of four - had two salads, french toast and mac n cheese. All were fresh, hot where required and delicious.
Will visit again the next time I'm in Savannah!

Had Brunch @ 1:30. Food was good, not excellent. My Wife’s Chicken Salad Sandwich was lacking in filling and had no condiment. Brunch Scramble and Friend’s Lamp Post were standard fare. I would say the Meal’s were nothing more Good service and ambience. Would call it a slightly above average Dining Experience.

The experience overall was good, but certainly not outstanding. I have informed them before that We were celebrating my wife’s birthday with friends and there was no mention about that. I little disappointed. Only after we told them again the waiter brought a cup with ice cream and a candle. Food was good.

Soooo good- has the shrimp and grits and the portion was massive. My husband got the osso buco and it was over Mac and cheese- yum! Definitely get the crab cake to start- barely any filler; my husband says it’s the best crab cake he has ever had and I agree!

This has been on my "to try" list for awhile and what a disappointment. Food descriptions on menu sounded amazing. In reality, the food was really mediocre for the price. Several veg-friendly options for my daughter and me -- all of them were so "meh" we couldn't believe the chef gets away with it. Husband order "Lamb Porterhouses". The one was practically all gristle, and the other barely had meat. It's a shame. Service was very good, we liked the atmosphere, but the food is in need of a serious overhaul. Two other guests liked their food, but weren't crazy about it. Too many good places in Savannah to bother going back, sadly.

The menu had a good variety. However, the Rainbow Bowl that was listed with 6 ingredients came with only 3 of the listed ingredients. The scallops appetizer came with slaw with lime vinaigrette dressing was made with red cabbage which was very tough to eat. The skirt steak dish was very good.

Casual, nicely prepared food, excellent music and overall a very enjoyable dinner.
Tables are cozy, though, and it would have been better if the restaurant provided large serving utensils so that starts could be shared more easily.

This was my second time visiting this establishment. The food is really great and quick. The chicken salad sandwich was fresh and very good. My hubby had the ham and cheese omelet and it was quite tasty. Please make sure to go If you are in Savannah!

We were greeted like old friends and treated like special guests throughout the dining experience. We had the scallops and the blackened mahi and would recommend both. Presentation was gourmet. Our waiter was there when needed without hovering. He even helped with our later plans at our request. This will be a regular stop when we are in Savannah.

Service was very good for during our brunch, the hostess stopped by to make sure that were being serviced and this very appreciated. We had made reservations and were seated very quickly. Our server balanced his very busy section leaving no one unattended. My wife had Crab Benedict and I had the Crab Omelet, both which were delicious. We will back to try both lunch and dinner.

We were a large group and this was the perfect spot for a girls weekend brunch. The menu is filled with their take on familiar favorites and the drinks are great as well - we all had bloody marys and mimosas and they were all very good! The place has a hipster vibe and the inside of the building itself is very charming. I would definitely return next time I'm in Savannah.

Always consistent, B Mathews is our favorite place for a relaxed brunch. Having enjoyed their menu several times before we gravitate to the known rather than experimenting with another restaurant. The service is always great even at their busiest times. The food is great- never disappoints. We are local residents and recommend them to tourists and out out of town visitors without any hesitation.

We went for brunch on Sunday during a girls weekend. Everyone had great food. There were many options to choose from. The only thing we didn't like was that alcohol couldn't be served until 1230. Thank goodness we had changed our reservation time from 1015 to 1215 or else we would not have been able to enjoy their mimosas and bloody Marys.

A great place only a block from our hotel. The food was very good with the best part being they let us share dishes. We had a crabmeat appetizer, the grilled Caesar salad and the fish of the day. We were quite full and no leftovers! The added surprise part of the night was a trio of musicians that were great.
