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”

The food was good and the ambience festive. However we waited nearly a half hour for salads because our waitress who was nice and attentive said the salad person "stepped out." It was strange.

I absolutely love this place! Their Sunday brunch is delicious! If you can sit outside, even better.

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!

Overall not great - specialty cocktail was bland, gumbo tasted like paste; ribs were mediocre, kale & brussel sprouts salad was very good.
Our server (Trevor) was very good and quick to respond, but it didn’t make up for the disappointing meal.

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.

Lovely spot on the canal. Great food and service. An unexpected Sunday buffet generally not our thing, but food was high quality from lobster claws to pulled pork, brunch foods and healthy salad

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.

At $24+/person for your brunch buffet, one should be able to get coffee and some juice drink without any extra charges. My friend and I made the mistake of getting a Bloody Mary each near the buffet table. There was no sign that these cost extra and for how much and so we were shocked to see a $20 charge on top of the bill for two buffet breakfasts. Because of this, I fo not think that I will go to this establishment for their breakfast buffet again. It us waaaay overpriced!!

Good food, terrible service. We ordered a large salad to split between 2 of us, and the fried chicken dinner, also to split. Everything was brought at once. My husband asked for a glass for his beer, it never came. The server obviously did not listen to us.

Very good food at a reasonable price. The prices are up a little bit from my last visit but the prices are up everywhere. They were not out of line. I little noisy but that is to be expected on a Saturday night. Great waitress. Food came out in just the right amount of time (not too fast or slow). The food was hot and freshly made.

Food was overpriced. My husbands $35 steak came out purple when he asked for medium well. My brother had a hair in his French fries. Corn fritters were dry. Only good thing was the burger (also the cheapest item on the menu) and the chicken wings. When the food was delivered they lifted each hamburger bun with their bare hands to see what was on the burger. I was very excited for the margarita flight, which was $22 but they all tasted extremely watered down. My dinner came out 6 minutes after the rest of the table so they were all halfway done eating by the time my dish came out. The waitress allowed dirty dishes and empty glasses to sit on the table the entire time. Then the topper of it all was my husband watched a waiter use the restroom, never wash his hands then go serve a table food. Overall we were very dissatisfied with the service and food and unfortunately for our first visit it set the tone and we will not be back.

I did not have a good experience here at all. It started when I was sat by the bar which was extremely noisy. There was a horse race on the tv and men were shouting and carrying on about the race. Then service was pretty slow, it took a while before any one came to take our drink order. We ordered calamari for an appetizer and when we got it, it was very overcooked. For my entrée I ordered a filet with crab meat and my dinner arrived cold while my husbands Gumbo was hot. Overall it just was not great. I was very disappointed.

We had a lovely and helpful server - thank you, Meg! Short wait until she was able to get our drinks. We both ordered brisket - we really love brisket! - but it arrived barely lukewarm. Wife’s was barely warm, and quite fatty - and we both had asked for well dinner, even burnt ends Wrong sides on one. And mashed potatoes needed to be hotter. Had to ask for cornbread - cold, not particularly fresh. Gave up on eating the brisket - not enjoyable for us. Restaurant itself is a great building with a nice view - but the meal did not match. They comped us one meal at least.

Great spot on the river. We felt comfortable with the social distancing of the tables and enjoyed our time there. The food was so-so. The gumbo was bland, the brisket egg rolls were greasy. The cornbread was doughy and too sweet. We had a delicious steak, however. Generally, it's a fun and scenic place to have dinner out, but the food will vary.

Very disappointing. Went here twice. The first time we were seated near the bar and it was so noisy we could not even hear each other (two of us). I had the brisket (it was gray) and kind of dry and tough. My wife had the shrimp and grits and it was okay but not great. The fried green tomatoes were tasteless.

The second time we went with some friends (4 of us). Again, the restaurant was mostly empty inside but we asked to sit away from the bar and were seated upstairs. First, we had to share menus. The host that seated us told us she would bring us more and never did. When she (the same hostess) passed by seating another group, we again asked for menus and she was surprised we did not have them and said she would get us additional menus but never came back. Then, after quite a long wait (15 minutes) our server came over with water. Spilled water on the table and made no effort to clean it up, mumbled some unidentifiable comments and ran away and we think he said he would be right back. About 15 minutes later, we decided that we did not want to suffer through the rest of the meal so we started getting up to leave. The same waiter showed up telling us he had 10 tables to take care of so I said perhaps we will leave since it was obvious that he was too busy to take care of us. Now he tells me that we will be first and he will take care of us first. That was the final straw so we left with no regrets.

All in all, the food is so-so, the service is terrible, and the management staff needs a lot of improvement. Be smart and go somewhere else for dinner!

We were very disappointed with the fried chicken and jambalaya. Chicken needed more salt and it was dry. Expected white and dark meat but we only got white meat. The brisket egg rolls and cornbread were delicious. The best part was sitting outside watching the boats go by on a sunny evening. Our waitress was great.

This is a really lovely spot, with an extensive menu and great service. (Special thank you to Maegan for being so good with our kids!). The hardest part was deciding what to order, but everything that we got was delicious. Very good value as well. The complimentary corn bread was delicious and it just got better from there. The interior is pretty amazing to behold and the water view is perfection. We’ll definitely be back.

Wife ordered shrimp and grits. The shrimp was way overcooked and the grits were goey and lumpy. I had the fried chicken. It too, was way overcooked. I got a leg, thigh and breast that was cut in half to make the fourth piece of chicken. Not overpriced, the waitress was awesome and did all she could to make us happy. Ambiance is awesome right on the creek. May or may not go back.

Beautiful setting on the Rondout Creek, nice area to stroll around. Jambalaya was very good, might be too spicy for some. Fish and chips not so great. Beer batter was mushy. A bit over priced too, $8.95 for 4 deviled egg halves is steep. Probably would visit again though for a second chance.
