The wine program and service staff are led by owners Greg and Gary Butch. Elizabeth on 37th is located in the Victorian District.

The place is a gem! The views are breathtaking, unbelievable sunsets, live music, the artists had an angel voice and sang all classics (Whitney Houston, Bruno Mars, smooth operator etc.) Food is ok, mainly pizza, nachos etc, nothing too elaborated but the experience the drinks etc that is the take away. The only downside is that open table lets you reserve for dinner but when you arrive there is a sign that it is first come first serve (they only reserve to have lunch or a drink until 3 pm). That is a glitch the bar and open table need to resolve since it can ruin your plans. We were lucky someone stood up and we could grab the table so that is why I have an overall possitive experience and review.

The whole experience was special. A friend from out of town wanted something different, with a feel of Savannah. We enjoyed everything: the warmth and professionalism of all the staff, the surroundings in the restaurant and the excellent, unique food.
