I love Bar Julian. It is hands-down the best view of Savannah and the vibe is immaculate. The service was really good and so was the food. The price is definitely higher, but that is expected for a hotel bar. To put it in prospective I’ve been there three times in five days lol. This is my absolute favorite bar in the city.

Our experience at Dorothy’s was very good. We were seated right away and our Server explained the ordering process was was very well educated on the menu. She guided us through our selections and was attentive to our needs. The food was good overall but we did find the the Scallion Pancake a bit greasy. The Tuna Tartar was the amazing along with the Cabbage Rolls. We also tried the Fire Roasted Chicken. The smoke level and seasoning were good but the breast ate a little dry. We finished with almost the best Bread Pudding we’ve ever experienced. Thanks for the great anniversary meal.

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.
