    OMG, their Shrimp and grits is the real deal, with some of the best grits I have ever tasted! The wine list is limited but a bit eclectic. The location on the Riverwalk is unassuming, and initially this looks a bit like a place for pub grub, but I assure you it is much better than that!

    Had the special which was grilled mahi-mahi, asparagus, and mashed potatoes - all very good! Started with she-crab soup and a gimlet drink, both of which were excellent!

    I am traveling solo. The crab soup and southern bouillabaisse were wonderful. The house Sauvignon as well. Service was mediocre. I was seated in a dark back corner. Turned out my waitress was also a bartender and rarely checked in. My bouillabaisse was delivered while I was eating my crab soup. I said I wasn’t ready for it. 20 minutes later I had to go asking for my entree. So service poor but food delicious and reasonably priced.

    A Savannah star. We had reservations and were promptly seated. The drinks, one Long Island and one Margarita, were delicious. I had burger and my husband had the shrimp and grits. The burger was great, but the shrimp and grits were outstanding! I have never tasted better. The atmosphere was tavern like but not too noisy. I would highly recommend Boar’s Head Grill and Tavern when in Savannah. E. Walters

    We were early but seated immediately for our reservation. Waiter was attentive but when asked how are meals were did not seem concerned when we expressed disappointment in one of the meals. Baked stuffed shrimp was extremely salty. Liked the ambiance(only thing missing was a fireplace)of this historic stone building. We’d try it again, but would not order seafood.

    We had a nice view of the river. Server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Relaxed atmosphere. If walking you may have to negotiate several steps up and down from the general streets above as the restaurant is located steeply down on the river level.

    We were staying for one night at the Olde Harbour Inn nearby. We chose Boar’s Head Grill as it was close by. We loved the old building which dates back some 200 years. As they had seafood I had hoped they would have more choices with simpler preparation. Food was good.
