Stopped in for lunch on a very slow day. The service was great. Food was exactly what we were looking for: steamed crawfish and shrimp and fried shrimp for the kids. A casual restaurant that is good for families at lunch.

We stopped at this establishment to get a quick bite to eat. The hostess greeted us with a smile and welcomed us to Fiddler's Crab House and to River Street. Our waiter Patrick suggested to us the Oysters Rockefeller. Great way to start out our early dinner. These morsels of goodness are tasty. I have the Po Boy Shrimp sandwich.... More

Escargot was served with sun dried tomatoes in a small cast iron fry pay. Waste of time, just above non edible. They need a new recipe. Drinks are also over priced and poor service even when you are sitting at the bar.

Headed home from Florida. stopped and took my mom and aunt to eat here. This is my 2nd visit and the food and service was just as good as the last time. Amazing views from the deck and everyone loved their food. I highly recommend the low country boil and crab dip. This is now our must eat place when... More

A southern dish that will fill you up. The shrimp and cheese grits contained sausage that added to the flavor. The decor was between dive bar and sports bar yet the server was very friendly, great sense of humor and the service was very good. A must visit while in Savannah

The restaurant provides a lovely view of the river with very good service, however we found the crab cakes to be barely average. No lump crabmeat here! Grouper/fish tacos were very good.

We walked in around 5:00 and were seated right away. Our waitress was Laurie. She was friendly. She took our orders fairly quickly and the food came out quickly too. I got the smoked salmon salad. The bowl was so full of food, that while I was cutting it all up, some of the food fell on the table. It... More
