Gastro Pub
No jacket required... A casual dining experience with professional service without the stuffiness. We asked our classically French trained chef to develop and produce a reimagined pub fare menu, and boy are we glad we did. Burgers, tacos, fried green tomatoes paired with a 16 oz. Prime Ribeye, Asian inspired Braised Short Rib, & a 8 hour Gumbo & Stone Ground Grits. Whether you are grabbing a quick bite with friends, or wanting to lean into dinner with our award winning Chef Justin "Grizz" Grizzard, we've got you.

It was hot in the bar room. We asked to be moved and were told ‘no because we had already ordered’. Top it off, the food was not great.

Had an early dinner and hit happy hour, a little disappointed that taco Tuesday was cancelled but able to have the fried bison and meatloaf instead. Both were good, the bison was the best and the batter was very good.

Could not advise, made reservations via open table app for Sunday Brunch, about 10 days before hand. Arrived and was advised that lunch/brunch reservations were “not working” via open table, only dinner reservations. We had a party of four and the wait would be a hour, minimum; I declined!

We went around the corner to the Gray Market, were seated, really just walk in, and found a table for four! What luck, it was busy Sunday!

The Gray Market was excellent! Very disappointed by the response by the Ordinary Pub! Could not comment on food quality or otherwise, but don’t accept a reservation you can’t honor!

Second visit a disappointment

We started with the loaded pub fries as an appetizer, and while the flavors were good, the portion was very skimpy. The plate was not terribly large and the fries covered about 60% of the plate (one layer of fries). We both had the smoked chicken tacos and while my wife enjoyed hers, I did not find any smoked flavor in mine. As a Master BBQ Judge with KCBS and FBA, and someone who smokes chicken regularly, I know what smoked chicken should taste like and there wasn't even a hint of smoke. The best part of the dish was the asian pickles.

Very unique setting and food offerings. Great small plate choices. We chose 4 of the small plates vs a dinner offering which was great with a few beers and short walk to the Savannah Theater for a live show. Service was spot on and prices reasonable. Would recommend and we will go back next time in Savannah.

Well made and interesting cocktails. Many variations of “mules” to choose from. My bacon 🥓 old fashioned was terrific.

Food is very interesting. I’ve never had chicken fried steak but went for their bison version. That, along with the best sausage gravy I’ve ever tasted made for a delicious dinner. Just too big! Would have been perfect to split as I hated leaving 1/2 on the plate.

The Ordinary Pub hit all the right notes. Would absolutely revisit when back in Savannah

The food was great. It always is. But there was no social distancing happening at all. They were full to capacity. Also our service I think was in experienced because he didn’t time our salad and entree and about three minutes after salad was dropped to table our entree came:/. When we were through he dishes sat until another server cleared them. Then with still 1/2 a bourbon drink he drops us the check. Without asking if my husband wanted another drink. He did, and ordered another. Not sure if it was inexperience or just trying to flip quickly:/

The place has great atmosphere. We sat at the bar while we waited for our table and it was like everyone there were friends. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Our appetizer- pork belly donut slides- were amazing. I had the chicken & waffle gyro. It was good, nice combination good flavor. The loaded grits were delicious. My husband had the short rib & grits. The grits were great but the short rib was basically one edible bite and the rest fat. I’m guessing it was just bad luck since everything else was good. Overall, great place

I very much enjoyed our Appetizer which was the Fried Green Tomatoes, but our main dishes were not as impressive. My Husband had the Ordinary Pub Burger which had Taco Seasoning on it, we found that to be strange, and I got the Chicken and waffle Gyro which had so much Thyme it overpowered the dish. I would come back again since the service was amazing, and maybe it was an off night for the food. We do frequent Savannah on Vacation a few times a year.

The ambiance was not for us: located in a basement, the decorations are a hodgepodge of generic restaurant paraphernalia, not cute, cool or cohesive. We were seated at a table in the middle of the room and there was not sufficient spacing for covid protocols. I was uncomfortable with the lack of space, packed tables, and the loud room. The menu was hipster at best - overly complicated dishes to elevate traditional. Mixed drinks were phenomenal.

We chose An Ordinary Pub based on the good reviews it got on here. I’m not sure why it got good reviews. The food was mediocre at best.
It wasn’t crowded and we had a reservation. They tried to seat us right next to another table and we asked to move further away. They accommodated us because it was half empty but there is no social distancing in this restaurant.
The macaroni and cheese was ok. Wouldn’t call it good. The burger and fries were ok. Again not calling it good.
The mixed drinks are good and the service is good.
Don’t think I’ll be back.

We were pleased find a cozy gastropub that featured a well-thought-out menu that was unique and not simply "different." If it's your thing, try the "farmhouse meatloaf," which is one of the best I've ever had and which didn't need any extra seasoning or flavor -- it was perfect!
