While visiting Savannah we happened upon Alligator Soul and decided to give it a try. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. One of the specials for the night was duck over pasta and I would gladly order it again. My husband got the lamb and it was extremely tender. This is definitely a more up scale environment, so business casual attire would be recommended to not feel underdressed. Give it a try!

This was our second time eating here and it was even better this time!! My husband and I both ordered appetizers (him the charred wings and me the octopus). The octopus was delicious!!! He enjoyed his wings as well. Our main course was also superb! He got the pork chop and I got the scallops! Delicious. Service was great. Atmosphere was great. Cocktails were also great! Can’t recommend enough. Can’t wait to return.

Overall it was a good experience. Unfortunately had to send back meatloaf entrees because it was cold. Got it back after a quick blast. Overall it was a good meal. Server was very nice and tried her best to make it a good experience.

Our server Becky was outstanding--kind, professional, knowledgeable while being totally chill. Her recommendations were on point. This is some of the most outstanding food and service we've had in our 2 decades visiting Savannah. The food was amazing and the vibe was completely relaxed and unpretentious. We look forward to returning

Good food but expensive considering that you have to cook it at the table and it consumes a lot of time. Makes trying to have a good conversation difficult.
