Boar's Head Grill and Tavern Ratings and Reviews
This is a beautiful tavern style restaurant on the Savannah River with ships and a large paddlewheeler passing by our window as we ate. It is in a restored cotton mill, is very rustic in style but classic Savannah in food and beverage offerings. The host and our waiter were gracious and attentive, and frankly everything was perfect. We walked from our hotel near Market Square and the walk home was also a delight as we passed by the other shops that share the old cotton mill building. As far as ambiance, it is a step back in time in the warmth and style it offers, as opposed to the noisy, bright pretentiousness of some "chic modern" restaurants. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Always a favorite when we visit Savannah. This time we were disappointed with the noise level upon entrance at bar. Almost caused us to leave. Then when seated the music being piped in was inappropriate for dinner. Server did turn music off but it was turned back.
In town for a holiday weekend getaway. I made reservations and was seated promptly. The waiter was attentive and provided excellent service. I ordered the filet mignon and I can honestly say it was the best I have ever had. My boyfriend ordered chicken alfredo and it was delicious. Will definitely be returning on our next visit.
We had a group of 6...showed up 20 minutes before our reservation time and waited an hour for our food. When the food began to arrive at the table there were entrees that were cooked wrong and most of it was cold or warm. Food was far too expensive for the quality. Upon receiving our checks, each member in our group was allowed to pick a free desert. We will not be going back and will not recommend.
We were seated immediately upon arrival, at a prime window table. Our server took our drinks order and they arrived in minutes. She helped us with a couple of questions about the menu. Food arrived promptly, nicely presented and plentiful. The server was discreet throughout, topping up water and refreshing drinks without being intrusive. Dessert portions were just the right size, satisfying without gorging. A great evening and a restaurant we will definitely revisit on a future visit to Savannah
Amazing place owned and operated by on-site husband/wife owners with delicious food and drinks. One of Savannah's best for all occasions from casual to semi-formal. Beautiful view, great bar and friendly staff. Highly recommend to locals and tourists. 30 Year Savannah citizen from Va Beach.
Wonderful restaurant! Historic building on the waterfront. Table with a view was ready when we arrived. Friendly staff. Food was awesome. I had the crab stuff tilapia. Cream brûlée for desert. All was made to perfection. Our waiter answered questions about the building and shared some historical facts with us. Truly a spectacular evening.
First time visiting Savannah, and we are so thrilled to have dined at Boars Head Grill--the room itself was cozy, and we were seated at one of the windows overlooking the river and watched ships pass by; our server Austin was excellent--personable with a perfect sense of timing. The food was excellent--my wife enjoyed the famous she-crab soup and a perfectly cooked ribeye steak; I savored the oysters Rockefeller and shrimp and grits--a spectacular dish that really hit the spot--All in all a lovely evening we will not soon forget. And don't miss cocktails on the roof of the Bohemian Hotel-a great start or end to a lovely evening!
We've eaten here before. My she-crab soup and fried shrimp were excellent. My wife, however, had a salad with shrimp that she thought very bland. The manager stopped by to ask how our dinner turned out. I told him about her salad and he immediately took it back and added enough spice to make it good.
My wife and I came to Boars Head to celebrate our 45th anniversary. They did not disappoint. The entire staff from the Maitre'd to the bartenders ensured that we had a memorable evening. The food was absolutely delicious. Our server, Auston, was very knowledgeable of the menu items and wine list and lead us though a wonderful culinary experience. Thank you Boars Head and we are looking forward to dining with you again.
This unassuming bar/restaurant serves some of the best dishes in Savannah. It’s not nearly as fancy as some of the other noted Savannah restaurants but the food may actually be superior. We had the bbq shrimp which was great and I had a steak that was perfectly cooked and delicious. If I found my way back to Savannah this is the restaurant that I would look forward to revisit.
Absolutely the best meal we have had in a very long time. The shrimp & grits are plate licking good. That dish is a favorite of mine ... now I can't order it anywhere else. Sharon's steak & BBQ shrimp were perfect. Steak was perfectly cooked and very flavorful and the shrimp was delicious with a wonderful peach BBQ sauce. Our server Joe provided very professional friendly service. I wish we didn't live so far away, we would be regulars. YES, By all means have dinner at The Boars Head. You will love it!!!!
Good food, they had snow peas as a seasonal side option and they were delicious. The filet was cooked perfectly and tasted great, they do give a choice of sauces they put on the side of it if you want, but they were not needed. Their wine list was solid, good selections but not huge. The she crab soup was quite tasty. There is some view of the water front through a few windows, it really depends on where you get seated. A prior review had mentioned Maine lobster was an option, but that is incorrect. The chocolate bread pudding was divine! My husband loved his creme brulee.
We are on vacation in Savannah and decided to have dinner here. The food was good but nothing amazing. The server and service was good. Everyone was very friendly. I ordered the fried shrimp and my husband ordered the stuffed tilapia. Again both good but in a foodie town there has to be better. Ambiance was as to be expected based on its location on River Street.
Overall great experience. The open table app worked well even though our time and headcount changed several times in the days leading up to our visit. Service was solid, with a friendly and helpful staff, and everyone enjoyed their meals. Even though the restaurant was busy on a holiday weekend, the noise level did not ever get bad and we had a great evening catching up with family. I rarely give 5 stars, but this was close, and everything about our meal was great!
