Jason Starnes, Executive Chef cares about his customers as much as he does his food! He took time to sit with us to deconstruct his avocado toast recipe - which is the bomb! Rhett will be a guaranteed stop on future trips to Savannah, GA. Thank you Jason...

This restaurant is located in the river plant district. The servers wear masks and gloves for Covid-19 regulations and all tables are spaced appropriately. The food is kind of a mix of southern traditional food with a few new twists. There are options to share small plates if you’re interested in a tapas style dinner, but then there are larger plates for a more traditional entree dinner. We did enjoy the food, it was very tasty.
The only downside is that restaurant website boasts about free 2hr parking for customers but there are no directions on where to park and when we arrived we could not find said parking. After we asked the staff they did not acknowledge there was parking except for the valet parking or street parking around the corner, so be prepared to walk.

We walked in went to bar to ask for seating, we had a reservation but there was not a table ready, we sat at a dirty table and then a server asked if we were ready for our check, I kindly explained no we had a reservation but the bar said take a seat anywhere. Food was presented well but it was cold. ☹️

My wife and I, with our two kids, visited for breakfast after staying at a different hotel in the city. Even with a limited menu, this restaurant clearly pays attention to detail with regards to food quality and service. Classic, yet filling and delightfully tasty, everything we ordered and were served was impressive. Slightly disappointed that the Biscuits and Vidalia onion gravy wasn’t available during our visit, I can 100% assure you we will be back on our next trip to Savannah to hopefully enjoy that! The restaurant has a great ambiance and decor and it is in a great location to walk the waterfront after enjoying the filling meal! Kudos!

Not worth the money. It looks nice inside, however, if you pay attention, you realize it’s not. Our water glasses were the same plastic glasses that were used in my middle school cafeteria twenty years ago. So cheap looking. They were sold out of two of the apps we wanted and three entrees, one of which we also wanted. We were not informed of this until we had spent a while looking at the menu and deciding, and only when we tried to order said items did the server list off the things they were out of. Wine list is boring and overpriced. Food was NOT worth the money. Brisket came out room temp, almost cold. My artichoke risotto was just okay, there were some tough artichoke pieces in there that I had to pick out of my mouth, pretty disappointing. The apps were just okay, the southern sampler board with the fish dip came out with five measly saltines, and yet there were generous mounds of pimento cheese and a fish dip. After those five saltines were gone, did they expect you to just spoon it into your mouth? The dips were good, but so little to “dip” in them. It was a lackluster experience for $200. No wonder this place wasn’t booked up like the rest of the places in Savannah that night. Will not return and also will be very wary of places with open availability on a busy weekend. Was trying to treat visiting family to a nice meal and experience and must say I’m embarrassed.

Only offered five entrees for a special Valentines menu. By the time we were seated for our reservations they were out of one of the entrees. Switched to the lamb chops, they were good but slightly over cooked.

Cocktails left a lot to be desired. One of the drinks we ordered was an old fashion with extra cherries, to which the bar tender stated, the bar down here does not stock cherries.”

Not worth the money.

Thank you for posting your review. I'm sorry that you had such a negative experience dining with us. I understand your frustration with the particulars of our Valentine's Day prix fixe menu - especially if the dish (and cocktail) you ultimately settled for wasn't perfectly done. I passed your comments along to the rest of the management team and we'd like to invite you to join us once more so that you can see what we're all about.

The food at Rhett was outstanding, even for a prix fixe Thanksgiving menu. And, the roof top bar is a beautiful setting. This end of the Savannah river front, the Plant Riverside District, is shaping up as an exciting addition to downtown.

What a disappointment. We made a special trip to Savannah from South Carolina especially for Thanksgiving dinner. By the description on their website we were expecting a lavish Southern buffet. Instead we were presented with only a 3 course offering. We were misled. We chose turkey for our main course and received one small thin slice and some vegetables which would have easily fit into a bread and butter plate. We chose 415PM for a party of 2 as our dining time since all times after that up to 845PM were unavailable. When we arrived, the restaurant was almost empty. Another inconvenience since we preferred a later time. Overall it was the worst Thanksgiving dinner we have ever experienced. I would never recommend Rhett.

The experience that we had at Rhett was a bit mixed. Our appetizer board with ham, pimento cheese, etc, was average. There were 5 small, thin crackers on the board for two of us to share. That was almost comical. Those 5 crackers were supposed to be enough for our pimento cheese (even though there were only 2 tablespoons of it), some shaved ham, 1/2 cup of fish dip, and deviled eggs. When we asked for more crackers, the kitchen sent out 5 more tiny, thin crackers. That made us laugh and wonder if there was a cracker shortage.

The wedge salad wasn’t a wedge. It was a salad of romaine lettuce, which was overly dressed in an avocado dressing. My hamburger was the best thing about the meal. It was cooked the way I ordered it, and the flavor was very good. French fries were delicious!

Our meal at breakfast was better than at dinner. Orange juice was fresh, coffee hot and flavorful, and omelettes were very good. Our favorite food at breakfast were the potatoes with thinly sliced grilled onions.

It’s extremely convenient to have a restaurant in the hotel that offers more than a quick, average buffet. With a few improvements, Rhett could attract a crowd of diners who come to the hotel for a wonderful dinner instead of just eating there because they’re staying at the hotel.
