We were so disappointed with this stop. We went bc of the special listed outside. The table was not that clean and the service was slow. I had the fried chicken and cheesy pasta. Nothing to write home about. You could make it yourself. My husband had the nachos, just wanted something light. Take your time and go somewhere else.

Actually ate at Spanky's twice during my visit to Savannah for the GAFC conference. Both times were great. The atmosphere created by the location in the River Street Area and being in an old heavy timber building is wonderful the food was only over shadowed by our server Mallory she was excellent she has a great sense of humor and...

We sat at the bar and our server Cheryl was great! She made us all feel welcome. The food came the way we ordered and was hot. It is a stop well worth it.

This place has improved since my last review. This visit was awesome, the waiter was great, had a sense of humor. The food was good and came out quickly hot and the waiter kept checking on us.

Happened to drop into Spankys while exploring River Street and so glad we did ! Our first experience with "Spankys spuds" was so great may never be able to eat a French fry again ! Chicken tenders moist and served with an awesome sauce. My son claimed burger was terrific. Very friendly servor and quick service.

We visited today for a late lunch after our Trolley tour. Service was really good. Mallory was our server and she was very nice and a fellow Ohioan. She was very attentive and fun to talk to. She recommended the chicken fingers and spuds so we went with it. We really liked the food and she kept our drinks filled.... More

We stopped here for a light lunch while exploring Savannah. Initially service was very quick. Quick to take our order and quick to bring our food. Our server's name was Whodini. (Later he would do a disappearing act.) Anyway, my wifes hot dog and potatoes were both good, and my chicken strips basket with fries would have been great if... More

We drive up at least once a month from Florida to have us some Spanky's . Plus while in Savannah we do walk around but our main reason is to eat dinner then drive back home . It is definitely worth the 6 hour drive there and the 6 hour drive home . The food is good and love the... More

Dropped in here for lunch during a visit. The place smells like sour milk. My feet stuck to the floor when we walked in. We were seated immediately ( cuz very few people were there). Tables were as sticky as the floors. Service was actually really good, but the food was mediocre at best. My chicken salad came with shredded... More

No alcohol service until 1230pm on Sunday's. Peach sangria was a $5 special, very good. Split fish and chips for snack.

Description
Family owned and operated since 1976, Spankys serves up the worlds best chicken finger! The story goes like this, in 1976, a few friends wanted to start a restaurant on River Street in Savannah. Then, the booming River Street we know today was only a dirt road, with only a few spots for dining on the waterfront. Enter two innovative friends who cut up a few pieces of tender, white meat chicken, battered and fried them to perfection, and said to each other 'hey, son, lets call them chicken fingers!' And so Spanky's was born, and its still run by the same man and his family and loyal wonderful staff today! Come on down and dine on a piece of Savannah history with us--we're waitin' on ya!
