The food was average. The service was average. The prices were above average for Savannah but on average for River Street. Nice live music being played. Bathrooms were clean.

The water glasses had old lipstick on them. Disgusting! Tried the signature dish on the menu and was very disappointed. Had to ask for dinner rolls and ask if we could get dessert.

Very nice meal. Wish we could have heard the music more - we were in the side room. Food was good. Waitress was very nice. Things were a little slow but it was nice for a birthday dinner - wouldn’t recommend if you want somewhere quick. Drinks were good too. Overall, enjoyable and relaxing evening.

We ordered the Savannah Paella and filet & lobster. Paella was good, my first time eating it so didn’t have anything to compare it to. The filet & lobster wasn’t worth $42 to us though. The steak was bland, mashed potatoes tasted instant, green beans looked rubbery.

The food was something I could honestly eat at Captain D’s. Not just mine. My husbands. My parents. The table next to us was complaining. The drinks tasted like water or maybe even sink water. The salad dressing was so watered down it tasted like we were eating plain lettuce. The food was dried out. No seasoning. The server had no idea what was going on. When we complained she just gave us everything for free. The manager didn’t even come out. It didn’t make it better. We left starving. And went to a baby and had better food. Very disappointed and will never be back.

Really enjoyed dining here on a corporate gathering. They seemed to be really uptight about accommodating a group larger than 5 or 6. Wanted to set us at different tables which was really unnecessary, as the restaurant was near empty on a Monday night.

Service was great, food was good, ambiance was rustic and nice. Excellent choice for smaller groups.

Celebrated my birthday with a romantic meal with my husband. Service was professional, atmosphere was quiet and pleasant, and the food was outstanding. We had both seafood and steak and were pleased with both. The lobster crab bisque is a must as a starter! Also, in a great location as we were going next door for live Irish music afterward at Kevin Barrys. Great experience!

Worst meal we have had in a long time. The "lobster" bisque was inedible and bore no resemblance to any bisque I have seen before. The seafood paella was terrible- basically packaged spanish rice with poorly cooked seafood and some.peas thrown in. The table next to us sent everything back. Never again

I can’t express enough how amazing our experience was here. The food was delicious, the ambiance was a nice balance of elegant while also being laid back, and the service was perfect. Our waitress was friendly and graciously let us try samples of things. We ate the raw oysters, fried green tomatoes, scallops, and lobster/crab bisque. It was all very good and worth the value. I will definitely be back!

River House Seafood was a great dinner spot to ring in the New Year. Our group of 7 for seating at 8:30pm had a great table, the food was delish, the drinks kept flowing, and the service was really good. Cheers to this restaurant and 2019!

Weekend in Savannah and tried this place on River Street. Plenty of restaurants to choose from but this one is a home run. Great staff and the food was delicious. Wife had Surf and Turf and I had Scored Flounder with Pear Mango sauce. We also split the fried green tomatoes... a must appetizer! We will be back.
