Third visit in the last four weeks. Great place for dinner And drinks.
We went for dinner on Valentine's Day with our son, daughter-in-law and 2-year-old grandson. It was not crowded for our early seating, and the waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. The food was good but not great, but it was a very nice evening for our family group.
Woodie took awesome care of us and it was his first night on the floor. Great bar staff too.
Great place for lunch or dinner, with lots of history.
Restaurant Week with friends.
Other than waiting for 30 min past reservation time it was ok, food took a while to come out, pretty noisy but it was after all a bar.
Visited in February. Still had Christmas decorations up. Staff was friendly. Food was pretty good. I expected more. It wasn't awful but wasn't great.
Enjoyed this tavern as part of Savannah's Restaurant Week!
Food and drink were as good as any in town. Service superb, can't say enough, very well kept. I'll go back often
Crab stuffed flounder was absolutely delicious (slightly over seasoned in spots but tolerable). Service was top notch!! Can’t wait to go back!!
Went there for restaurant week because of the menu. Very impressive. Probably better than Ruth’s Chris. My wife and I had the firecracker shrimp for the appetizer, the ribs and steak entree and of course, the cheesecake for desert. I have commented favorably to several friends of mine.
Restaurant week menu was nicely set. Fried green tomatoes were very good, but accompanying sauce tasted too much like slightly seasoned mayo. KC sauce on ribs overpowered the pork which had little other seasoning. Both gave well-prepared food a corporate taste. 8oz strip was pretty good. I was happily surprised to find sausage in the rice but others might not appreciate the same surprise. The maple bacon cheesecake jar was excellent. Service was polite and efficient but rather inflexible with respect to requests, and smacked of corporate margin-watching over customer service. They will not bring bread before you order your meal, even if waiting for members of your party who are delayed. Another diner in my party commented that the flounder was ok, but nothing to write home about. Overall, it was a good dining experience, but with so many restaurants in Savannah that execute similar meals at a higher level, a diner could do better elsewhere.
We decided to try a new place for restaurant week. The service was fine. Dessert was good, appetizers OK. My husband's ribs and NY strip were good. My stuffer flounder was so spicy with pepper, it was almost inedible. Not interested in returning
Awesome menu! Awesome food! Incredible service! Great location!!! I can’t say enough! We had an awesome experience!!
Not worth the money. There are too many other great places to eat in Savannah to ever go here again.
Service was awful, it took 2.5 hours to eat for four people and we all got the specials and once we did get our food it was dry and seemed to have just been reheated.
Don’t waste a meal here.
Restaurant week!! It was busy and out waitress seemed like she was chasin around with a ton to do, but was super friendly and helpful.
A patron across from us was a “complainer”, loud talker and used filthy language-and the servers, wait staff, and a manager went over and above to try to appease him
Stopped for a night in Savannah on the way to Florida. We were looking for moderately priced, casual, and a short walk from our hotel (Hampton Inn), and Tondee's fit the bill. Waitstaff was excellent and fun. My tiny martini glass was only half full, although it was inexpensive. My wife's grilled oysters were very disappointing. The cheddar (?) cheese topping was like what is put on potato skins in a dive bar. Her hush puppies were ok - a bit dry. I ordered gumbo which was very good. I had only about a spoonful of gumbo when my entree came leaving me to decide which one to eat cold. I had the steak and rib combo. The steak was average but the ribs were outstanding. If I'm in the neighborhood I would go back but probably have ribs or a burger and skip the martini and oysters.
Nice restaurant with local food and good service. Worth to go there!
All the staff especially Woody, Michael and Sharon are awesome.
We went there as a big, family party for dinner. We hand some special food needs in the party (vegan and vegetarian with some) and the accommodated well with suggestions and unique takes on the items available (thank you!). One in particular, as all the dairy was removed, the kitchen came back to validate we didn’t want sprinkled cheese on the veggie bowl (thanks, again).
We went down to the basement (see the website as to why) where we found the woman who was in the video. We talked to her, got a quick tour, and learned about her cheesecakes (amazing BTW). We asked lots of questions and got our filled before appetizers.
The our guy, Fed. Fed was our server and he really built up the excitement by planning our meal, timing the basement trip, to timing his own personal stories of the city, the restaurant, and his own personal experiences. We loved him, our kids adored him, and we will definitely come back (and ask for him).
The food is tasty, the price was reasonable, the staff was around at all times to make sure drinks were filled and food was as expected. The manager came around to make sure we were happy and we were!
Thank you all.
Great pub with great food and service be sure to ask for Jake. My wife and I stopped in for dinner and drinks 3 out of our 6 days while in Savannah.
We were just not a fan of the drinks or the food.
We visited on 25 December and 30. The first visit was perfect, food, drinks and the waiter were awesome . The second time Just the opposite the bread was Warmed up in the microwave which made it rubbery it took three loafs before we got a fresh one. The waiter wasn’t as good eaither.
Friendly staff and good service is Tondee Tavern's best attribute. The food is descent and the atmosphere is definitely sports bar tavern. It is more appropriate for a young person's after sporting event or to watch a game.
the owner must take the title of the Rican-lada off
this is a misrepresentation of a culture and the pina colada drink
ALSO it was insulting
Struggled to get into Xmas day restaurant. Finally took a chance booking here worked out fine. Hubby had ribs, I did the Salmon. Great food, only issue hubby disliked the sauce for ribs. To quote "too tangy, want sweet". Ribs were falling off bone.
Great service we were there on Christmas night and the place was very crowded, but we received great service and our orders were exactly as we ordered and delicious.
Been to this restaurant several times and it is inconsistent at best. Sometimes it was great, others, not so much.
As my wife would say: nothing to write home about.
I wanted to like this place on Christmas Eve but it wasn't to be. Slow service, a server who disagreed with my husband as he reported the beer he received was not the IPA he ordered. She replied that it was, despite a different server delivering it to our table. It took forever to get a white Russian and the second drink I ordered sat at the bar so long, I overheard the bartender ask twice whose drink that was. I did raise my hand. Our meal took over an hour to arrive, with the server stopping once during that time to check on us. She did apologize for delay and failed to refill our dwindling water glasses. I watched several other servers, apparently more competent, take care of their tables around us. No bread with our salads, and no apology for the undercooked steak we returned for a bit more grill time. I really wanted to like this place....
Food was awesome our server audriana was awesome
A fun atmosphere, an engaged service staff and very good food highlighted our visit to Tondee's. On a chilly evening in Savannah, my wife and I scoured the dining options on Open table in search of comfort food. Having way over-spent the two previous nights, we also were looking to not break the bank. I ordered a half rack of baby back Ribs that were terrifically tender. My wife had the extra large crab cake that, while tasty, would not make anyone forget Baltimore. All in all, a quick, delicious and moderately priced meal worth consideration when in Savannah.
Food had so much pepper it over powered all the other flavors.
The food here was not very good. A downtown location with food that tasted that bad was puzzling. Out of the 3 of us that were there 2 meals where wrong. But if you count the appetizers then 3. One guest asked for cheese for her broccoli they brought melted chesse (microwaved) , it was so hard she couldn't get if off the plate. This place is laughable.
We dined here for the first time this time Saturday night and it was wonderful ! When we walked in the door we were greeted by Tatiana, the Hostess with the Mostest. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Our group ordered calamari, shrimp, steaks and chicken fingers and everything was delicious. During the course of our dinner, at least 5 or 6 people waited on us, bringing out our food and drinks and they were all really friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back !
We were in Savannah for our anniversary and had planned to go to River House inside our hotel for dinner, but the hotel didn’t bother to let us know the restaurant’s holiday hours when they suggested it. It was 6pm, we were starving, and not many restaurants were open or weren’t seating anymore parties. We were able to get a last second reservation at Tondee’s and rushed over to get seated. Our server Tatiana was amazing. I had been so upset over our anniversary dinner ordeal but she made me forget all that. She was so welcoming and funny and made the best suggestions. The restaurant was so busy since it was one of the few open and was serving a full menu, but she was able to make each of her tables feel special.
Delicious food, the Thanksgiving platter was full and delicious. Cheesecakes to die for. Service was great, friendly and attentive. On our list for future trips to Savannah
This was my birthday celebration with friends. The staff was very friendly and made my birthday dinner special. They offered me a delicious dessert with a happy birthday song. They were awesome. Also a birthday shot. I was very pleased with my decision to have my birthday dinner here.
Great location, friendly staff. I had the shrimp and grits which was delicious and my son loved the ribs.
Last minute choice. Was very pleased with the service and food quality. We will be back.
