The service took a while but the food was great!
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...
The avocado toast was wonderful. Great service, beautiful restaurant close to the water!
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 loved their brunch food!!! It was delicious.
Great brunch great service
We only had breakfast but 2days in a row !
Great coffee and grit bowl plus eggs.
Enjoyed meeting the chef! Great guy, great food.
We were slow to be seated then extremely slow to be helped, but once our waitress arrived, she was attentive. The food was great.
Excellent brunch. Service was wonderful!
Thank you for your kind words! I'm happy that you enjoyed your experience. Come visit us again soon!
Cute place and yummy food ! Quick to seated and friendly staff !
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. ☹️
Breakfast in Savannah. Food was great. Service was slow but staff seemed to be working hard just understaffed.
Service and food was great
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!
Great date night reservation! Brunch and the mimosas were awesome!
Lovely restaurant with great food! We stopped in for brunch before heading to the beach. This is a great spot to get high quality food in a more causal setting. The overnight oatmeal parfait was especially delicious!
BEST breakfast of our vacation! Loaded grits were “magical”
Overall, would recommend. The cauliflower starter was very well prepared, with good flavor, spice, and taste. The service was fast and attentive.
Thanks for the kind words! I'm a big fan of the fried cauliflower, too. Come see us again sometime!
Really bad service. Staff had to take our order three times to get it right.
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.
I'd like to apologize for your lackluster experience with us. I've passed along your review to the rest of the management team; we take criticism like this very seriously and have been looking into everything that you mentioned. This is not up to our standards. I'd love to invite you back to Rhett for an opportunity to make up for your experience on the 16th. I'll send you my contact info in a private message in case you want to provide any further feedback.
Came here for Valentine’s Day dinner. They had a pre-prepared menu, we ordered with wine pairing. Food was very fresh and flavorful.
Thanks for the kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed our Valentine's Day prix fixe menu. Come see us again soon!
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. Please see my private message for more info.
Stylish, yet comfortable decor. Excellent food and a creative play on Southern favorites. Healthy options. Already recommended to a friend. Will put Rhett on the list to take visitors to. We will be back!
Thanks for taking the time to leave us such a positive recommendation! It is much appreciated. We can't wait to have you again.
Too noisy. The noise bounced off the hard walls and ceilings We could not converse easily we could hear people from across the restaurant
Rhett is a great spot for catching up with friends or family. The atmosphere is hip, and the food is great!
Horrible all around. Ordered Champagne and it came in an open bottle and was flat. Goat cheese had NO flavor and food was burnt. Paid and told manager that I was disappointed. He acted like it wasn’t a big deal. Sad!
Very good food with friendly, excellent service. Dishes were well prepared and tasty but not over-top extraordinary or creative. Pleasant dining spot by the river.
Thank you for joining us!!!
Great food and great service. Had a wonderful meal and wonderful time. Service was outstanding!!!! Thank you so much for a fantastic experience. Can't wait to go back.
Thank you for joining us!
Food was incredibly average but I can’t say enough about the terrific wait staff
The staff was really friendly and the food very tasty.
Thank you for the 5 stars!!!
A bit of a sparse feel A la Southern industrial. Good service, and the biggest surprise for a Thanksgiving day a la carte menu-delicious!
Thank you for the review! We are so pleased you enjoyed our Thanksgiving menu.
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.
Thank you for the review. So glad you enjoyed our Thanksgiving menu. Hope you join us again.
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.
We would like to extend an apology from the entire Rhett staff that you had such a disappointing experience while dining here on Thanksgiving. We pride ourselves in creating an inviting atmosphere, good service and delicious food. Obvioulsy we missed the mark with you. We want to invite you back in to enjoy dinner on us. We would like an opportunity to change your opinion of our restaurant. Please reach out to me directly. Arthur Sertorio GM 912.544.4575
Food was excellent-was our Thanksgiving meal! Waitress was the best!!!!
Thank you for the lovely comment!! So gald you enjoyed our Thanksgiving pre fix menu. Please come see us again.
Went for Brunch and it was great, DEFINITELY recommend the fried green tomatoes!
Glad you loved the FGT!! Please come see us again.
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.
Very slow service and not a big selection. Waited over an hour for food and did not looked very busy.
Excellent food. Well done
Glad you loved the food Justin! Thanks for the 5 stars
