Common Restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Savannah, overlooking the iconic Marshall House and Broughton St. The restaurant is housed in a National Historic Landmark building, c.1880s, that once housed Savannah’s Orpheum Theatre. Sister restaurant to Broughton Street staple, The Ordinary Pub, guests can expect the same innovative spirit fans of The Ordinary Pub have come to know from our award-winning team.

Our menu consists of elevated southern cuisine like our Lobster White Gumbo, Short Rib Hot Plate, and Curry Shrimp & Grits. Alongside our culinary creativity, guests can enjoy our craft bar experience with full dining, cocktail hour, curated cocktails, and our diverse wine list.

Common Restaurant caters to an adult experience and does not provide high chairs, booster seats, or a children's menu. Reservations available for up to 8 guests. Groups choosing to make multiple reservations will be seated per the server rotation and are not guaranteed to be near one another.

    Ambiance and drinks great. The food was just ok. Crab cake was mostly breadcrumbs and overpowering spice. It was so salty it was almost inedible. Thai sauce for the crab cake was tasty. Had a bIte of friends short rib and that was very nice when eaten together. The short rib itself was under-spiced. Overall solid meal and great ambiance

    The moderate noise was during Happy Hour so the ambience was great. The food is spectacular, I got the Curried Shrimp and Grits, the shrimp were perfectly cooked, the curry was savory and spicy and perfect for the shrimp and the grits were perfectly creamy. My husband got the Low Country White Gumbo and it was equally outstanding. The server was awesome and so on top of everything without being invasive. Really just a perfect restaurant and Savannah has another gem in her crown.

    There are not enough star options for Commons. Would give it 7 on a scale of 5. The food suggested by our server was amazing as was the dessert he suggested. Pineapple Situation, eggplant ba bin and the pina colada bread pudding. Oh my gosh it was amazing.

    Great food. The crab cakes were the best I’ve ever had with a Thai influence which is not very common. Also it was expertly spiced. The chicken and waffles were great, but too large a portion. In fact I asked for a box to take away even before starting. Once I did that, I was able to enjoy. This was also expertly cooked. Another dish we had was the Lamb Shanks, very delicious, but the ‘ Risotto’ served as a side was not really like a risotto we know. But other than that, a great dish.

    Overall good dinner. I would have rated higher but at the time of our reservation they were out of at least 6 of their menu options giving us limited choices. This also not a very kid friendly establishment. Menu options are limited to an adult burger and chicken and waffles. Drinks were good but lacked garnish (French 75 and Mojito).

    Food was good but my only complaint was that they didn't plan for the Labor Day weekend and were out of many entrees by 7:30 on Sunday night and no desserts but one. Seemed like they didn't plan well. Food was delicious though and was wait staff excellent.

    We started with cocktails: bourbon mule was tasty, GTO #4 highly recommended for a light refreshing drink. We weren't starving so we started with Thai crab cakes - very highly recommended. Followed with scallops and ravioli- very al dente, scallops super tender. Paired with albarino. Wish we were more hungry. Will definitely be back. Super huge wine list!

    Very cool vibe. They however do not have high chairs. We made reservations for 5:30 so we could bring our twin toddlers and were surprised they didn’t have high chairs. Burger was very dry. Oysters Rockefeller were delicious. Mahi-mahi was also delicious ( see picture).

    Food was good, but very limited brunch menu. We had to wait at least 20 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation booked. Server was nice but inattentive. The restaurant was very noisy, and the bartender kept singing. Overall it was an ok experience but one we would not pay as much for in the future.

    Tooo loud. Waitress was friendly but spoke so fast I had trouble understanding her. They do not serve iced tea. The waitress described the menu as “contemporary southern” but I’ve lived my entire life in the South & have never seen a restaurant without tea. So, I asked if they had lemonade which they did and she said that it was homemade. I ordered that and it was good. Small but good. It disappeared quickly and she asked if I wanted another which I did. When the bill came I discovered they called it “Commonade” and charged $8 for that little glass of lemonade. Also she didn’t tell me that it was $8 each! I had a burger which was ok, the fries were excellent. There were four of us, 1 chicken sandwich, two Mahi-Mahi served with rice in 1/2 a Pineapple, one had a cocktail and one had a glass of wine for $156. They were doing a bang up business that appeared to be tourists.

    I got the seafood pesto Mac and cheese. I would have liked a little more sear on the shrimp but it was quite tasty. My partner got the chicken and waffles. The fried chicken was excellent. I would encourage making reservations and visiting during the daily happy hours of 3-7 PM for a better price on drinks. It's quite loud inside when busy. The overall meal price was a smidge high. It was an enjoyable dinner. CJ was a great server and we appreciated her input on our order.
