The Ordinary Pub
Welll... It’s a bar... it’s gonna be loud! But we didn’t think it would be THAT loud At dinner- our res was for 7:30.
We could hardly hear ourselves think, much less talk to eachother.
Also- our daughter , who recently got braces, specifically asked for no diced peppers on her shrimp tacos- boom! they came with peppers ! Bummer #1
The waitress apologized kindly, said the tacos without peppers would be right out and that they would be “ on her” ( double plus!!)
So ....there she sat.... and sat....for about 20 minutes waiting for her dinner, but insisted my husband and I eat ours.
By the time she was finally served, we were done. Bummer #2.
2 points to Nate: I noticed we were seated in the “ bar” section of the place, and upon entry it looked as if the first room was more like a dining room- prob much quieter!
So... the moral of the story is, if you want to be able to hear and talk to eachother- request a table in the quieter room!
If you wanna PARRTAYYY, sit in the bar area and see if you can scream louder than all the tables around you!!!!
Great Taco Tuesday!
The drinks were so good here and the food was amazing! Huge portions of really tasty Southern specialties at reasonable prices.
We made a reservation and were sat immediately upon entering. Service was prompt and the atmosphere was great! Drinks were excellent! The food is what really did it for me! I was extremely impressed with the food. Unique dishes, prepared quickly, and they surpassed any and all expectations! A must try!
Excellent food and cocktails!
Delicious Fried Green Tomatoes and Crab Cake Entree. Biggest crab cake I’ve ever seen with lots of meat.
Awesome service with EXCELLENT food!! No complaints at all!! Everything we had, drinks included, were delicious!! Service was superb and our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and was great at making recommendations to my friends who had never been before.
Great experience - didn’t enjoy food as much as first time there but can not wait to come back and order different food. Drinks were stellar!
The food was excellent. It’s a little loud, but I’d definitely go back.
Excellent place and the best hearty salad downtown.
Great location and wonderful meal. We enjoyed the entire experience. Thank you!
Great food. Great Service. Fun place!
Food was a little different but everything we had was excellent and the portions were more than adequate. The only downside it is very noisy.
Interesting tasty menu choices and large portions
really a wonderful place. The food was terrific and Extra ordinary.. I'll going back next time i'm in town.
Always love going to Ordinary Pub! I’d been a few times but this was my husband’s first visit. He loved his meatloaf and my crab cake was amazing!! We will definitely return for a future date night! :)
The cocktails and food were super yummy. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and gave us good recommendations for both. Our portions were very large! Go hungry!
The food was wonderful, the beer selection was excellent, but the service was outstanding. A hardy thank you to Dallas for her excellent service!
Menu was very unusual with creative dishes and twists abounding . In other words, not the same old stuff. For example, they had mac and cheese combined with generous sized,tender shrimp and Andouille sausage with a tad of heat in the sauce . Portions were generous. A further example of an unusual dish was tacos made with shredded lean duck. Only criticism of the tacos was that it was served only with a vinegar based cucumber mix. What the tacos needed, esp. to be consistent with the creativity theme, were two sauces, like a guac. served alone or mixed with mayo. or sour cream and a second sauce made with a lemon based sour cream and, or mayo. These sauces would have greatly enhanced the flavor of the unusual tacos and I am surprised that the chef's ingenuity did not result in such sauces being created. Many creative and tasty dishes in an unusual subterranean atmosphere. Noise levels are fairly high with sound bouncing off hard floors and walls, but that was probably intended. Good craft beers on tap. Pub type menu in part with well presented burgers made with beef alone or beef mixed with pork. Food is reasonably priced and a fun but noisy atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent and helpful and other help I interacted with was pleasant and seemed happy.
Great restaurant!!! Food was very good. Atmosphere was intimate. Waitress was exceptional. Pricing was reasonable. I would definitely go back again when in Savannah.
Ordinary Pub is great, but our OpenTable reservation never showed up in their system.
Ordinary had fantastic food and the second best service we had anywhere in Savannah. It was a little warm inside but otherwise it was fantastic.
Everyone enjoyed their meals. The kitchen was very helpful offering substitutions to make my dinner Keto-friendly and delicious!
This is our 5th time at Ordinary Pub and once again it did not disappoint! From our arrival to checkout we were made to feel that we were the only patrons in the place, even though it was packed! The service was impeccable and the food was better than ever! I always try something new when I go, and this time, it was the Fried Bison with Smashed Potatoes and Roasted Red Pepper Brussel Sprouts! It was simply delicious and the portions were huge!!! Trust me when I say, this is my go to place when in Savannah! They have never disappointed! Their name may say "Ordinary Pub" but they are far from that...they are extraordinary!!
Great place tucked downstairs in the heart of Savannah. Menu has great flavor combinations and the drink menu has plenty of craft choices. Our server was helpful and attentive. We would definitely return if we are visiting in the future.
We didn’t stay long enough to eat but to write this review I had to rate everything so I gave it middle of the road ratings. This is an extremely loud downstairs pub. There’s loud and then there’s LOUD. I’d recommend it for drinking with friends if you don’t want to talk with each other. I’ve heard the food is excellent.
It was good but we went during happy hour and they only have 5 items on the menu. I like simple beer (bud light, Miller lite, Corona) but they dont offer this type of beer...OK understood but when I asked the bartender if they have anything light and simple, she said no...
What a wonderful meal! We started out with the loaded tots and pork belly donuts. The pork belly was delicious. The loaded tots were really good but the texture was a little off putting. Dont know if I would order them again, but the pork belly is a must!
For dinner we shared the steak. It was delicious! The tomato butter was so good the duck fat chips were amazing, the steal was seasoned and cooked to perfection. I would high recommend ordering it.
The drinks were very good, and strong. The service was exceptional. Very attentive and took great care of us.
Cant wait to come back and try more!
Love this place! Always great food. Excellent happy hour and nice atmosphere. I had duck tacos tonight and the hubby had stuffed meatloaf and it was all fabulous. Always a place we go for a nice date night that’s reasonable.
There is nothing "ordinary" about this place. The food is carefully curated and the presentation of each dish was beautiful and more importantly delicious. Don't miss some of the creative libations. We will be back again and again.
This is the second time that we have been and love the look and feel of The Ordinary Pub. It is a great energetic place with outstanding food. I would highly recommend The Ordinary Pub to anyone.
We have been here for drinks before but never dinner. The food was excellent and abundant! The service was very fast as well.
We had a good time at The Ordinary Pub, but it was very close to being a great time. Service was good and the vibe was great. The only issue was our appetizer and my girlfriend's dish were both overcooked (mine came out fine). You could tell the potential of the items if they'd been cooked a little less though. We would go back, but maybe not when it's packed on Memorial Day weekend.
Great place to go to get a break from the typical dining options near River St. This place has a true pub feel and is tucked away down a set of stairs. The ambiance is great. If I lived in savannah, I think this place would be one of our regular dining spots. It teeters on the side of a Gastropub without being pretentious. We had the fried green tomatoes caprese salad to start. It was awesome! Highly recommend for a nice twist on two classics. My husband had the loaded Mac n cheese. Considering the very large portion, he almost ate all of it. I think you could say he likes it. I had the gumbo shrimp and grits. Again, a yummy take on two classics that paired exceptionally well. We will definitely visit this place again! Make sure you start with a Stay Golden Pony Boy cocktail. It was delicious.
Great spot for a casual meal- good food nothing over the top amazing though the kim chi short rib is pretty great!
Service and food were great ... prices were reasonable ... we’ll be sure to visit again !!
In Savannah for a girl's weekend. Went there for brunch. Food was delicious!
Loved this place!!! Ambience was great and food was delish! Stuffed meatloaf was to die for!
Large crab cake. Next time I'll ask to cook it a little longer. I wish the outside was more crisp. The dinner french toast was very good. The sauce had nice flavor and the bread was unique. Not a huge variety on the menu. It is in the basement of a building so there is no view.
