Our first time at Tondee’s but definitely not our last. We had a fantastic server - she was so informative and attentive.

Everything except ribs were excellent. Nice cheesecake for dessert. Small but just enough. Seafood boil by far the best.

best meal we had in the 5 days we stayed in savannah. Service was very quick and attentive and we weren't rushed at all. Food was very good and priced right for the portion sizes. No complaints from any of us. Great job y'all :)

The place was average compared to surrounding locations. The server we had was super nice, though new at her job. The kitchen was obviously having production issues as it was almost an hour to get food out. This was true for all of the surrounding tables as well.

Busy night service was a little slow but to be expected the waiter was nice and funny and so was the bus boy. Food was amazing. The only negative I have is the frozen drinks melted too fast

Service was awful, the tavern was filthy. The bathrooms were atrocious. We asked for our bill prior to ordering dessert due to the slow service... dessert came, we ate, it was cleared by a different server and we still had no checks. When our server came back, she asked us to help her write down how to split the checks... then, came back with the checks all wrong. She disappeared for quite a while. We had tickets to a show we were now about to miss... so... I went to find her- she asked me to step behind the counter to help her because she couldn’t read her writing and didn’t know how to ring up the bills. Nobody offered assistance or compensation. Never going back.

My sister and myself surprised my mom in Savannah for her 50th birthday! The staff sang happy birthday. They brought out the cake! I had the stuffed flounder and green beans it was amazing! We also had the crab dip and bay street sampler as appetizer! Great staff. Good prices! Great food! Best part the cheesecake!!!

Our server Savannah was wonderful! Very accommodating for our group, professional and friendly. Maybe it was because it was the rush of New Year’s Day, but the mussels were luke warm and the bbq sauce on the pork sandwich was cold.

Tondees Tavern was absolutely amazing on New Year’s Eve. The food came out very quickly and everything was delicious. The stuffed flounder was divine and the mussels as a starter was really good as well. The staff was very inviting and had excellent recommendations. I definitely recommend this restaurant and will come back to it again
TRY THE CHEESECAKE it is baked in a mason jar!

Great menu variety. I had the red snapper and it was excellent! The salmon was salty for others that ordered it, but they still liked it. The fried green tomatoes app was great too. The best part was the service! We really enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the attentive and kind employees that made it a great experience. We will be back!

We made a reservation here for NYE dinner and it was a great experience. We had bacon wrapped shrimp and a filet, and they were fantastic. Our server was great too, as was the host and every person that brought something to the table. Definitely would recommend.

Lovely dinner at the Tavern. I wasn’t a big fan of the chat grilled oysters, but our dinner entrees were perfect and the cocktail menu had some fun choices. LOVED the mason jar cheesecakes for dessert! Staff was friendly and helpful.

Soups were cold. Shrimp were frozen not fresh. Shrimp and grits has butter in them instead of a gravy like most do, taste was garlicky, just not impressed. The staff apologized and offered a round of free drinks.

We went to savannah for a night and were looking for a place for dinner. Found Tondee’s on open table and trip advisor. Liked the menu and when we walked by earlier thought it would be a nice simple place to eat. We were delighted with the food and service. The service was great, friendly and attentive without being overbearing and, when I left my phone on the table as we were leaving, the busboy found it, gave it to th server who had it at the front before we could even get to the door. And, since it was our anniversary, they gave u a dessert to go.
The food was also very good. Well prepared, properly cooked without overlooking, and the portion were generous. A very good dinner all around and t(e price was quite reasonable.
