Boar's Head Tavern & Grill
The Boar's Head claims to be the oldest restaurant on River Street, and is located in a building that was once a cotton warehouse, like most of the buildings in the area. Exposed brick walls decorated with a collection of gold plates and hunting trophies create a cozy atmosphere. From a seat at the bar, or on the small patio, patrons can look out over River Street and the Savannah River. Kitchen specialties include crab cakes and she-crab soup, and the bar recommends Bumbo Punch, a special rum punch.
This was one horrible choice. You would think that an establishment on river st. with so much attraction and foot traffic would have better food. The menu was weak at best with no attempt at creativity or uniqueness one should expect in Savannah on the river. Don't waste your time or money.
We live 4 hours from Savannah, yet we travel there about 6 times a year with our 2 girls. We always dine at Boars Head. We love the Tomato salad, the She Crab Soup, Shrimp Scampi, and the Strip Steak. On our last visit ( 3 weeks ago ) My husband had a special request of the Chef. He wanted Stuffed Shrimp with his Strip Steak. No problem. The meal was delicious as usual. We've NEVER had a bad meal.
Do yourself a favor and make a reservation for a river front table. You'll be very happy with the view.
We will be returning to Boars Head on Aug 7th to celebrate my Mom's 71st birthday!
I ENJOYED EVERYTHING ABOUT THE BOARS HEAD RESTAURANT.THE SETTING IS OLD WORLD AND VERY RELAXED.THE SERVICE WAS PERFECT AND VERY FREINDLY.THE FOOD WAS AWESOME.I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANY ONE.IF ONE IS EVER IN SAVANNAH THIS SHOULD BE A DEFAINT MUST FOR YOUR DINNING OUT EXPERIANCE.
we asked the wait staff if we could get our food to go for a party of 23 we were not going to take up any tabel space. first they said yes. about 5 mins' later the wait staff came out and said that the manger told her that they could not fill our order be cause it to large of a group.
my husband and I were totally impressed with the food and atmosphere. our waitress was very tentative and recommended the chocolate bread pudding for dessert, it was out of this world, definately a must if you stop in.
We decided to have lunch around 1:00pm. We had seen the restaurant in magazines and decided to give it a try. We ordered She Crab Soup which was brown in color and wasn't very good at all. Something was definately wrong! We also ordered a plain crabcake and a crabcake sandwich. The crabcakes tasted like a day old and was in old oil, then heated up. It was terrible!!! My husband took one bite and threw it on his plate! Like the other review, he didn't question why we didn't eat our lunch! That night we ate at the Magnolia in the DeSoto Hotel. Again, we had She Crab Soup which was out of this world! One of the best we've ever had. And we had crabcakes which were absolutly delicious! There was no comparison and to boot, the prices were comparable. I'll never return to Boar's Head Restaurant. We should have complained, but didn't.
