Good crabs and shrimp.. but.........the service was not great. No warmers for the drawn butter so it congealed before we were finished eating. The beer was good (local craft beer), but the atmosphere was not relaxing.. too noisy and the tables too close together. No dessert or coffee offered before the waiter came with the bill.. All in all a... More

We love fiddlers. The food is always good. Their crab dip is amazing but then again so are most things we have had there. On Monday they have all you cam eat crab legs. The price is reasonable, and when they say all you can eat they mean it. Definitely suggest checking it out. If you don't like seafood check... More

We came back here while visiting Savannah this past weekend b/c we liked it so much our first visit. We sat outside on the deck which was very nice and our server was great. We started with the calimari which was very good. Unfortunately it goes down hill from here. Last year I had the shrimp and grits from here... More

Had drinks and lunch here. Sat in outside patio so we could enjoy the view. The food and service was good. We had the fried clams and mussels with several sides. Yum.

Nice river view balcony. Great assortment of drinks. We started out with some clams, oysters and a salad then topped it off with some WONDERFUL BLACKENED TUNA!!! All was GREAT!

Stopped by for lunch on River Street and saw they had a lunch menu. I probably wouldn't go again but only because there are lots of choices.

Stopped in for beer and appetizers. Very satisfied with our crab cakes and fried green tomatoes. Both were served very hot and the tomatoes were crispy, well cooked, and came with a tasty sauce. Service was good...server familiar with the local beers so that was helpful. Would return to eat a full meal.

Stopped by for a late lunch, wanted a view of the river and this place has a balcony. To start, with three couples waiting for a table the hostess seemed overwhelmed. Did not take names, just stated, it will be about five minutes while I clean a table. Ten minutes later she was taking names and trying to seat diners... More

We visted here in February and the service needed hospitality for vistors! When we enterd downstairs they greeted us with a warm welcome and hospitality! We were seated upstairs where the hospitality did not rise to the occasion and the waitress can't remember her name had a trainee with her sorry I can't remember the trainee name either but she...

We needed food. The crab cakes weren't lump, but had very very little filler and were served with fresh veggies. The mary's were extraordinarily spicy, and nicely strong. A nice horseradish bite that I haven't had before.

Thank Ashley D
