AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Eclectic/Unusual): Step back into the 18th century at this haunted restaurant comprised of 15 different dining rooms, one of which was the oldest house in Georgia.
Classic Historic. Dating back to the early 1700s, this spot began as a tavern and now that same yesteryear charm greets diners in historic Savannah. The menu is dominated by seafood dishes but steak, chicken and sandwiches are served alongside Southern-style side dishes also are available. There are 15 dining rooms decorated with period pieces and memorabilia and the floor staff is well versed in the building's colorful history and eager to pass it along with all the sordid details. They also entertain guests with their personal stories of unexplained events that have occurred during their shifts, which they attribute to the many ghosts rumored to inhabit the premises. There is no getting around the fact that this place is a tourist trap but the quality of the food is undeniable and the portions formidable. I had the fried green onions with smoked Gouda pimiento cheese for an appetizer and the shrimp Creole entrée, neither could have been better in my estimation. A lunch buffet is available 11-3 along with an abbreviated à la carte menu.
