                                                            Cohen’s ALWAYS exceeds expectations. Had friends and family in town from Maryland via California and Tennessee. We enjoyed shrimp and Grits, Crab cakes, grticakes with crab, tomato pie. Fried green tomatoes, and shared caramel cheesecake for dessert. They thoroughly enjoyed the food and the unique atmosphere.

                                                            The retreat overall is lovely, but sort of in the middle of nowhere. Food was pretty good. Service was okay, had to wait for a while before someone came up to us. The table we were sitting at should have been for two, awkwardly small. Overall would be a fun place for brunch.

                                                            We came here for lunch and the food was really good. We shared their smoked wings and fried green tomatoes, both were excellent. I had their tomato pie which was also delicious! I will def being going back. Plus, it’s not in downtown, allowing for ease of parking and avoiding the tourist crush.

                                                            Delicious food. The noise level was loud, conversations needed to be loud to be heard.The service was a bit slow to get started. We were very impressed with the flavors and presentation of traditional southern dishes. Would definitely recommend!

                                                            The food was mediocre; my shrimp and grits were mostly grits, and my husband’s lamb chops were fatty and cold. Table service was good although we waited quite a long time for our cocktails.

                                                            Greeted well, service was good, menu was not the one posted on their website. We had a semi private area for a party of six. We liked everything but felt the value was not there. I ordered the strip steak. Flavor and go with’s were great but the cut of meat was not. Crab cakes were good but not great. At the entrée prices charged, the quality of the food could be better.

                                                            Novel restaurant, but a bit disappointed that they seat people on top you! There were about three couples in the whole huge place and they seated someone right behind us, with barely any room between chairs! Extremely disappointed 😔.

                                                            Party of three with a reservation for lunch. This is not the kind of place you can go for lunch and be in and out quickly...lesson learned. We were there for an hour an a half! It took an hour to get our appetizer and then another 20 minutes to get our lunch. We had to eat quickly and get back to the office. The food was wonderful, but the service was so slow.

                                                            This was such a wonderful find for a long weekend trip to Savannah, a unique space with delicious food and drinks! Love all the truck bed seating and the old truck, plus the little shop that is within the area is adorable.
