    Food and service are both great! Got the crab soup and crab cake appetizer, then I got a ribeye and my wife got shrimp and grits, both were great! Also great wine list! Only thing is it’s very loud, we didn’t mind it but just be aware!

    There are a lot of good restaurants in Savannah, but save one night for Boar's Head. My wife and I enjoyed our meal thereon a Friday night (reservations a must). The server highly recommended their Shrimp and Grits, and they lived up to the hype! My wife had the evening special of seared scallops in a delicious sauce. Get it if they have it. Nice setting along River St. with brick and stone walls and the tables were nicely spaced. Great service. All in all, a wonderful experience.

    We have eaten at Boar's Head several times in the past. We were younger and didn't realize how dangerous the front steps are getting from the street to the entrance. We needed help from a stranger who helped us up the steps without any railings. Getting out of the building my husband fell on the crooked landing. Food was only about a 5 to 6. Caesar salad was bland hardly any parmesan cheese. I had chicken piccata. There was hardly any capers or lemon taste, but was served with mushrooms that isn't a part of REAL piccata. Our server was nice but the wine orders took quite awhile to get. We were with friends so had a nice time, and we love the antiquity of the building. YOU NEED A RAILING. We can't take a chance to come back until that happens.

    A limited menu. Oysters were so flat they were almost nonexistent in the Rockefeller and there was hardly any spinach. It was mostly melted parmesan cheese. Baked stuffed shrimp was ok but nothing special. Spinach salad could have been good because of the ingredients, but had too much dressing which made it a bit soggy. Waitress was very nice and chatted with each table and food came at a nice pace.

    We were looking for a casual, but decent restaurant while visiting Savannah overnight. The restaurant was welcoming, helped us with a desirable table and served surprisingly delicious non-pub offerings in a casual pub setting. The appetizer spinach salad was delicious as was the Lowcountry Bouillabaisse. The seafood entrées, others were having near our table also looked tempting. Our waiter, Cam, couldn’t have been more pleasant and engaging. Thanks for a great evening!

    We've been wanting to dine here on our past few trips to Savannah, and couldn't get a reservation. It was worth the wait! The ambiance is pure historic Savannah, warm & cozy with brick walls and windows overlooking River Street. And the food was outstanding - something for every member of our (picky) party. I had the Mahi special that night, and it was wonderful. Everyone we encountered - from the host to the server and server assistant - greeted us with a smile and was genuinely nice and attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend, and we will definitely return!

    Wonderful last minute reservation for NYE! Husband and I ran 15 min late and notified the restaurant through the open table app. Immediately they responded back they’ll see us soon. We arrived and unfortunately they had a kitchen oven hood issue and held out to serve us! Incredible experience from the wait staff to the food and drinks! You must try the bbq shrimp, crab cake, she crab soup, and crème brûlée! Absolutely delicious and excellent service, must go!
