My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and Boar’s Head did not disappoint. The shrimp and grits I had was heavenly. My wife said that her swordfish was delicious, as well. The desserts were just as good. We’ll definitely be returning upon our next visit to Savannah.

We enjoyed our dinner here very much. My husband had the fried shrimp dinner and he said they were very light.
I enjoyed their shrimp and grits. It was the best shrimp and grits I’ve ever tasted including those from New Orleans. Next time we are in Savannah, we will definitely eat here!

On vacation, it was my husbands birthday. I picked it off a list of places from a google search. So glad I did. My husband said the steak was excellent. I got the shrimp and grits at the servers suggestion. It was amazing. I’m not from the south and was nervous about trying grits. So glad I did. If we lived closer it would be a regular on our list of places to eat.

Really enjoyed our Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer and Shrimp and Grits entree. Daughter enjoyed her grilled swordfish. Loved being near a window and watching large ships go by. Our waiter was very gracious and attentive.

The small iPad they gave us with menu items was very dirty. Clearly had not been cleaned in a while which is unacceptable in the age of Covid. I needed to clean my hands after handling it. I ordered the beef brisket which was very good. My husband ordered a pork chop that was so tough the steak knife could not cut it. They removed it from the bill. The buttermilk biscuits were a disappointment. The ones you get from the freezer department in the grocery store are better.
