It may have been the best food and beer I have ever experienced. Unfortunately I'll never know. After being seated by the receptionist, we sat for over fifteen minutes while no fewer than four wait staff passed our table several times without acknowledging our existance. Since it appeared that no one was interested in our business we left. This occurred the afternoon of 06/18/06.
While visiting Savannah, we enjoyed eating lunch at Moon River. I got the vegetable wrap and it was delicious! It is in a great location. Definitely ask to be seated next to the window. The hostess acted as if she was having a bad day or just is not a happy person! But, our server was great! I would highly recommend this restaurant.
On Bay Street quite close to our hotel. Recommended by family who really liked the “Tater” beer. I’d read mixed reviews about this place; mostly the bad marks were for “surly” service. We decided that we would try it; if the service was “off”, we would get up and go next door to a British pub.
We got lucky; we were treated well by the hostess and seated at a nice booth by the window. Our server, although at tad “flaky”, was very nice. I had the Tater beer, hubby had a honey brew (these were both two of their “specialty” beers; not on the regular beer menu). Hubby's was high in alcohol content and sweet but not too too sweet. Mine was great; reminded me of a pumpkin beer.
Since we knew we had a “big” dinner out ahead of us, we just ordered appetizers. Hubby had wings done Moon River style (supposed to be real spicy; he said they were good but not that spicy). I had six “jumbo” shrimp stuffed with a smoked kielbasa/bread crumb mixture and baked served with a grain mustard drizzle. They were quite tasty but I don’t think the shrimp were all that “jumbo”. Still, it was sufficient to fill me up. We ordered more beer; me another Tater and hubby a Swamp Fox IPA.
The server reminded us that in Savannah, you are able to take your drink with you as long as it is in a plastic cup (something we noted when watching “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Sunday night). Hubby spilled the dregs of his Swamp Fox and our friendly server gave him a complimentary refill to take with us.
We went back to Moon River on two other occasions.
We stopped in on Saturday after an afternoon of walking around Savannah, shopping, and doing “some” sight-seeing.
We each had one beer and bought a few bottles of their famous chili-pickle sauce.
We went back Sunday night for our final dinner in Savannah; both of us at this point were a tad tired of the excellent but expensive fare at the “better” restaurants in town and were craving pub food. As was the first time we went, the service was quick and friendly. We each ordered burgers and they were fine (although hubby's stated it came with Dijon mustard and it didn’t have any on it; the server said they only had regular and honey mustard and my French fries were sort of cold).
Yet, the beer was good again (although they rimmed my Tater beer with some weird combination of spices, graham cracker crust crumbs and some sort of seedy thing this time which was sort of gross so I dumped it into my empty Swamp Fox glass).
We probably would have had better luck had we ordered their crab cakes or shrimp and grits or something like that but we were also both sort of tired of seafood at that point.
We really liked this place, though; especially for stopping in for a few beers and some casual grub.
It was a jam packed 4th of July weekend and after seeing the line at Lady& Sons, we were walking back to the River Street Inn. It was 98 degrees outdoors and 200% humidity. We happened across the Moon River Brewing Company. We had great food and service; it was wonderfully cold inside (thereby avoiding heat stroke), and really an enjoyable place to dine.
We found a coupon online for Moon River and it happened to be right across the street from our hotel. We had never been to Savannah and we had no idea of the history of the building at the time.
After a dissappointing meal at the Lady and Sons on Thursday night, we went to Moon River for dinner on Friday night. The food, the service, the beer, and the atmosphere were awesome. The fried green tomatoes were delicous and were topped with real crab meat. The black and blue burger made with real gorgonzola was amazing. My fiance had the veggie wrap and coleslaw and those were good too. I say skip Paula Deen and come here instead. Ya'll will be glad you did :)
I think the other reviews were written by the employees! This was the worst dining experience I have had in awhile. Be prepared for long waits an incompetant managment. If you must go here sit at the bar, oh but they won't serve you food there. When you do order food, be open-minded because you probably will not get what you asked for, if they even had it in the first place.
Went to Moon River on 06/11/2010. Service was terrible, Manager was not concerned with our lack of service, and attempted to comp drinks (just having water). It seemed that we drew the short straw for the evening. Would not recommend to anyone.
