Great food and beer! Was a little put off by the hostess who called and in a snippy way advised if 80% of our party wasn't there our reservation would be cancelled. However, the food was so good I forgot all about her.

Food was very disappointing and took forever. When our food did finally arrive it was wrong. Management did not handle the situation professionally. The only positive about the entire experience was our server. She was great. I will never eat there again nor will I ever recommend this restaurant to anybody.

The service was great, but the kitchen messed up badly. It was only after 4/5 meals were ready to be brought to the table that the kitchen told the server they were out of the 5th meal. Management made it right and comped the 5th meal so that was appreciated, but other meals were missing bacon and the made up burger came out well done rather than medium. I’d give it another chance.

Went for dinner & drinks. Wait staff was very friendly. Food is standard pub/bar food. Served quickly. Place is nice, we sat inside because it was raining, but I think we would have enjoyed sitting outside more had the weather cooperated.

This was a special trip to Savannah and wanted to experience all the "good places". This restaurant was highly recommended. It is a fun place, the service was very good but can't say the food was all that great. The Fried Green tomatoes had a good flavor but they were overcooked so that the coating was hard. The Tacodillos (brisket soft tacos) were bland and the brisket was very tough. The French Fries were good and our waiter was very good. ***Didn't see any ghost :)

Food was just average, nothing was terrible but also nothing stood out as particularly great. The beer was also kind of boring and mediocre, though I have high expectations for beer from craft breweries.

We have brought many friends here to eat since moving here in May and have had excellent service and food.... we love the food choices... This last visit, the waitress was not the most attentive or on the ball.... when asked, she didn't know what the special of the day was.... glasses (drink) has left empty and we had to get her attention to get refilled.... almost as if it was first day of waitressing.... food was great

This might be an ok place if you expect the bad service and it's not a special night. We made a reservation, but were seated under a music speaking right next to the restrooms and a very loud party. The music was loud enough that we had to tell to communicate. The waitress understood and agreed that it wasn't a good spot and told us that if we went to the outside tables, they could seat us immediately. The hostess there 9/2/2017 was so rude! We explained what had taken place inside, and she responded unapologetically, "they don't know anything about what goes on out here. If you want to be seated, it will be 20 minutes." We understand there is a bad apple for every bunch, so we just said okay and had our names placed on the list. After 20 minutes, we decided to check if we'd been called (it was very noisy and crowded). This time, the second hostess rolled her eyes and said, "just put them over there." We were sat at a spot that had been empty the whole time we were waiting. The table had water rings and food bits and had clearly not been cleaned off. I know this to be a health code violation because I work in food service. The person I was with wiped the table and seats off with there hand before sitting and the hostess said she bring some napkins (instead of sanitizing it properly). She did not bring napkins. After 10 minutes, our waitress showed up and asked us what we wanted to drink, when we said water and beer, she told us to get our own water from a 5 gallon cooler set up outside. We asked for a moment to decide, talked it over, and decided we had enough of the rudeness and decided to leave without ordering. On the way out the hostess chuckled and said "have a good night". It was really unbelievably bad. We were considering carrying this brew in our restaurant, but had a bad experience with the rep too. Too bad. Really wanted to support a local place.

We were visiting Savannah for Labor Day Weekend and decided to have dinner here. The menu had a variety of choices and the food was delicious! The humus and salsa appetizer was awesome! Our waitress was very attentive even with a full house. We will definitely go back on our next visit!

Each time I go to Moon River, I'm pleased. It's a great restaurant. Service is great. The food is outstanding, especially the wings. The beer is wonderful. I suggest ordering the taster and sample the bears with their history. Very interesting.

If we even think to come back to Moon River, it will be as a delivery order. The hostess was unfriendly and barely looked at us when we walked in, then proceeded to set our menus down at a table without even speaking to us. It took our waitress 11 minutes just to get to us..when we were 1 of 4 tables in the restaurant...at 5pm on a Monday..there was a bartender and 4 other waitress who walked by us multiple times, made eye contact, but did not say a word. Once our waitress finally got to us we went ahead and ordered our entrees. We did not see her again. The food was brought out by someone who set the food down and did not say a word. The food was quite good. We finished our food and proceeded to sit and wait for our waitress to come into view. We asked for the check, and showed our waitress a coupon that would take $3 off of our large plate (found on Yelp!). She said we could use it then walked back not even 45seconds later with our check...that did not include the $3 off coupon. We addressed this saying we just spoke about it and her response was "Y'all just showed me that and I haven't gone to talk to my manager that" so instead of speaking to her manager first, she added an entire step. Appalled by the way we were treated in this restaurant (having myself be a server of 6 years, and the person I was with owns their own local restaurant) we left enough cash to cover the check and tip, then left before she was able to return to our table with the correct receipt.

The food was delicious but the wait was horrendous. I'm not sure if the kitchen was just having an off night. A couple of tables around us just got up and left. We were the almost 2 hours and not because we wanted to be. We've had good experiences here in the past so I'm hopeful it was just an off day for them.

This was our 2nd visit to Moon River and both times the food and service were great! We both had burgers and they were tasty. We also had the chips and salsa and the deviled eggs and seafood spread. The egg portion was kinda sad(only 3 eggs) and the spread wasn't great but chips and salsa were good.

Food was really good, and I had the yoga pants IPA which was good, a little bitter, but good. My wife had the fillet and I had a burger, her fillet was slightly undercooked and my burger was slightly over cooked, both were still flavorful and delivious

We're locals and have been here a few times. Today we ordered a Bloody Mary and it tasted DISGUSTING. The manager refused to take it off our check even though we drank none of it and ordered plenty of other meals and beers, etc. Do yourself a favor and never order any of their bar cocktails (their bartenders are only capable of pouring beers) or try to interact with unreasonable management.

We have been here twice now and it is just "okay". Feels similar to a chain like Long Horn where the wooden tables are sticky and the menu is "the usual". This visit we did the full tasting of Moon River beers. Although we wanted that to be fun, most of the beer was actually not good, sadly! The service was okay at first then super slow - although she was pleasant enough. When I say slow, I mean like, waiting with our plates stacked up and please bring us a bill so we can leave slow. It's a big place and both times we had no trouble walking right in to sit down (once without a reservation and again with a last-minute reservation thru open table as we were trying to get to a show on time).

Overall food was good. The facility itself is pretty interesting from the historical stand point and being able to check out the micro brew tanks, etc. Service was OK and seemed as though it wasn't as much due to the server as a backed up kitchen that wasn't able to handle the volume of business.
