Southern
Ole Savannah’s menu and bar seeks to celebrate the fresh and inspired cooking and culture of the American South. We strive to deliver to our patrons a spirited and inventive twist on classic Southern cuisine. The South is about succulent, fall off the bone barbecue, fried chicken and pecan pies as much as it is about great bourbon and craft beers.

Equally important to the quality of our food is the hospitality of our staff. We make sure that our heart and soul goes into every item on our menu and all our fare and spirits are served with the love and passion you deserve.

“Outstanding food, served by happy people, to appreciative friends”

    Very loud due to several large parties. Brunch buffet should offer more lunch choices. Enjoyed make-your-own Mimosa bar and desserts. Mac and cheese was fabulous. Our waiter was very attentive. Overall, a nice experience.

    Although it looks great, don't eat here. Drinks were okay. I ordered the fried green tomatoes, which came out cold and served smothered with an unusual sauce. The side salads were a nice size, the blue cheese dressing, delicious. For my entree I ordered the fried chicken, which was tasty, but served with cold street corn and warm coleslaw. We told our server, who, although friendly, didn’t think to comp a drink or appetizer…usually customary in the restaurant business, I thought. Service also took forever - there was a wedding next door, maybe they were focusing on that, but it sadly wasn't the “ole southern food” experience I hoped for.

    Great food (gumbo, tilapia, carrots all excellent). Outdoor seating on the patio was lovely with a view of the river. Service was friendly and accommodating, but a little slow. Noisy but not annoyingly so.

    I thought this looked like a good place to try, but the food was honestly terrible to the point I was speechless. The only good thing was the corn bread they give you before starting your meal. It’s such a great location, and a nice looking place. I hope they rethink some of their dishes. We won’t be returning.

    Our server was very nice and the food was great! Only downside was that we were upstairs and we saw how dirty and dusty the above rafters were, and at one point we saw a large clump of dust fall down to the lower level. It’s a beautiful industrial building, and they have great service. Just need to rent a lift or something to get it all cleaned up.

    In town for several shows (Bearsville Theater w/ Circles Around the Sun, Levon Helm Studios w/ Bob Mould, Dirt Farmer Festival w/ Macis Staples, Midnight Ramble Band, Amy Helm.) Ordered the Brisket and everything was great. Enjoyed the added bonus of the scenic Hudson River and area.

    We went to Kingston for a nice family day. My husband, myself and our 3 kids had a great experience! Loved the location, view (outdoor seating) and the space is gorgeous. FOOD WAS GREAT - highly recommend the short ribs and the chicken gumbo! Also loved the smoked pineapple and bourbon drink. Our waitress was fantastic - very friendly, great services and knowledgeable about the menu.

    Fantastic time celebrating the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday. Despite the large crowd, the staff did a wonderful job managing everything and the music was amazing. Loved the shrimp and grits, the hush puppies, and beignets. I lived in the south for over six years and this meal brought back all of my favorite culinary memories. Can’t wait to come back and try more things on the menu, not to mention to take in the gorgeous views on the water.

    The restaurant was much too crowded, especially during covid, and much too noisy. Our table was IN the busing dishes area, which should not have even existed. But the staff were nice, slow but the volume of tables and orders must have been nearly impossible to manage. The food was good.

    The ambiance was very good the people very friendly Just wasn’t happy about the pricing. The prices were labeled on the menu as one thing but when we got the check they were higher priced. We brought them up to the waitress and she apologized that they were marked wrong but didn’t adjust our check. Just thought that was not great customer service. There also should not be a 3% charge to use a card I think with the prices as they are there should be no reason that especially with everyone using a card these days.

    First time visitors (party of four). Great ambiance, excellent service, mediocre food. A handwritten sign in front of the building said it was closed for a private party. Since we had driven an hour to get here and had a confirmed noon reservation, we went in anyway to double check and were told the sign had been up since the previous day and no one had remembered to remove it Uncomfortable start. Food: good brisket melt and green tomato sandwich, good fries; mushy oyster po’ boy sliders (I left two of the three except for one bite taken to see if all of them were the same unsatisfactory quality); mushy, bland fish on the fish-and-chips that was left largely untouched. Good fried green tomato app, so-so bacon-and-eggs app (bland yolk). Good pumpkin beer. Overall grade a “C.”

    Only could eat from the buffet. Food was cold and no one was monitoring it. Being that it’s a pandemic, it was sad to see. When we asked the server for straws, she grabbed them from a cup full of water. We knew these were ruined as another server told us he’d go downstairs for another one. She took the wet wrapper off and tried to hand us them barehanded rather than head down to get fresh ones. We called her out on it and she didn’t apologize. Super disheartening experience and won’t be coming back.

    Extensive menu! Nice location on the waterfront in Kingston, NY! Service was good and attentive! Orders beef sliders and they were terribly over cooked. Server((Nick) checked in on us and offered new serving of sliders but we opted to forego any additional food. Charge for sliders was removed from check. Definitely would go back again though.

    Service, ambiance and decor was amazing! Drinks were also great. Food was good, not great. Brisket was disappointing, ribs and pork were good, sides were good. BBQ shrimp app was good but bread should be toasted. Corn bread was great. Brussel sprouts were pretty good, very different because of uncommon sweet flavor.

    Terrible! don’t even bother coming here. We had to return several of the cocktails and wine because they were horrible and not drinkable. The appetizers sub par, calamari was over cooked and too tough to eat. Fried chicken wings would have been better from KFC. Entrees took forever to come and were cold. I could have gone to Denny’s and gotten better food. DO NOT eat here!

    Food was mediocre. Nothing very flavorful, and whatever had flavor, was dunked in very sweet BBQ sauce. The dessert was not good, very sugary and can taste freezer burn. The eggroll app was completely tasteless. The waitress was very nice, but they were severely understaffed. Took a very long time to get drinks and put in food orders. Nice ambiance, but won’t be returning.

    The food was cold. The “smoked” chicken was not in the least smoky and was undercooked. Our waiter was socializing with colleagues and highly inattentive. The crowd at the outdoor bar was too close to diners and SHOUTING to one another. The setting was lovely.
