“Sorta like a speakeasy, but awesome-r.”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

From the outside, this looked like a place that may be a "private speakeasy" because the windows are glass block and you can't hear the happiness that is inside.

I was in Savannah for a long weekend with my hubby and we happened upon this place for lunch. It was nicely busy, with friendly staff and patrons. Sat at the bar and I opted for the veggie burger, which was tasty and a side of cole slaw. Beer options were solid.

I wish I had taken notice of the chalkboard specials, but the bartender did not mention them when handing over the menus. It just means that we'll have to return!

Good spot, with lots of historical photos inside.

“Brown Ale Burger! YUM!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We ate here our last night in Savannah. We had a really big breakfast earlier in the day so we decided a burger would be great instead of a huge meal. So maybe we should have thought about that a little more! The burger was huge! And the jalapeno cream cheese on it was awesome! Great atmosphere and wonderful staff. This place warrants a repeat visit!
