Absolutely outstanding!! Even on a Monday evening, this restaurant was busy and we enjoyed the selection of piano music by Christopher. Our server Ernie was one of the best we’ve ever had - kind, friendly, informative, professional and warm and welcoming. His “strategies” and tips to make the most of the menu’s best were so appreciated as we tried items we would not have normally selected. The peach martini, She Crab Soup, Fried Green Tomatoes (the relish!!), Chicken Boursin, and bread pudding were delicious. We will be back every time we visit Savannah!

The restaurant is well appointed and has a beautiful view of Savannah. The food was good but nothing was outstanding. Service was not great; we had to wait over 40 minutes for our food (mainly pizza and salad). The manager did discount some of our entrees to compensate for the wait.

I usually avoid hotel restaurants, but when I booked my table I didn’t know 22 Square was in a hotel. Lucky for me. They have delicious shrimp and grits. Better than many restaurants in Charleston. Their take on hush puppies was very good too.
