We have eaten here before and have never been disappointed. We started with the crab dip which was was excellent. The brave among us had the oysters, the adventurous had the crab legs and the more conventional had the pasta. All of us thought out meals were very good. Our waiter was attentive and friendly and had a great sense... More

We stopped into the bar section so my wife could get a quick raw oyster fix. They were delicious? Very friendly staff. Recommend!

Stopped in for lunch after discovering our intended restaurant not open for lunch on weekdays. Ate at a window table upstairs with a nice view of the Savannah River. The place was empty. Several real positives: my fried oysters and fries and my wife's fish tacos were delicious; however, the coleslaw was as bland as could be. The local draft... More

A restaurant with a great location and good service. We had lunch on a Sunday afternoon with our family of 5. We were able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the view of the river. The servers were prompt and the food was delicious. Cost wise, it's higher than fast food, but we'll worth the additional cost. I would... More

Came for the Bloody Mary and an appetizer. The Bloody Mary was good but not amazing. It might be "The Best Bloody Mary on River St" but that's doesn't mean it's great. Very strong pickle flavor. Not too spicy. The restaurant had a strong fishy smell, too.

When I get near the ocean, I'm not as crazy about shrimp and crab. I love fish right out of the water. This place was GREAT! Khi was our waiter and he was fantastic. I got a super fresh (mahi) fish sandwich and hubby got steamed oysters and shrimp. Everything was super fresh and delicious! We sat out on the... More

Walking the riverfront in Savannah, we stopped at Fiddler's for some oysters and crabcakes. I enjoyed the daily special of oysters broiled with bourbon butter, chedder cheese, very good. The crabcakes were good, not lump but tasty. The second floor balcony view can't be beat with lovely harbor view.

We were kind of disappointed with Fiddler's. Food was just okay. Within seconds of ordering, my salad arrived, obviously pre-made and awaiting dispatch. The salad was pricey for a standard green salad with processed croutons and a plastic container of dressing on the side. My shrimp and grits had an excessive amount of melted cheese on top and I was... More

Be careful what you order; You will be amazed how much your order will contain. Between a 1 lb. order of Steamed Snow crab, and a 1 lb, order of steamed crawfish, we were smothered in food.
