We were looking for a scenic place on River Street. Kevin Barry's looked the part a dark old pub AC Ross from the WW II memorial. We ordered Irish Nachos, Irish egg rolls and fried macaroni bites. All were serviceable if not great. The Guinness and Smithwick drafts were fresh, probably due to the sell off on St. Patty's day.... More

My daughter, myself and sister went to Kevin Barry's and we're looking so forward to enjoying the music. We were not ready for the embarrassing display if bullying and cursing from the manager . Mike the manager, a army vet, has a scary amount of anger that he displays to his customers. I would appreciate Vic Power, the owner reach... More

Savannah hosts "St Patrick's Season" and in keeping with the festivities, we popped into Kevin Barry's. I had the very finest Irish Coffee ever! There was a terrific musician strumming traditional folksongs along with the foot stomping and clapping, choral responses. This restaurant and pub is on the riverfront level. As a result, you will enjoy low, dark ceilings, stone... More

So Ive been here ..... more than 5 times. Ive written reviews about this bar before. You can go through all my contributions ..... they are usually very good and I am not unhappy complainer. This bar has assured me of their many awards for being a great Irish Bar in rebuttal to my poor reviews. So I continue to... More

Smilingeveryday No offence none taken. Everyone has an opinion but the accolades, awards, and national/international write ups by people who are not the "average Joe" seem to hold some weight. Not only have I been to Ireland, many many times, but I have also visited part of Ireland that no one in their right mind would visit unless they have... More

My husband & I stopped here for lunch. They have a large beer selection with reasonable prices. We ventured upstairs and found a table. They have great views of the river. After about 10 minutes my husband went and asked the server if someone would come to our table. A server did and took our drink order. Then we had... More

J G Thank you for stopping by Kevin Barry's Irish Pub and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the food. Usually I am not one to apologize but this is an exception to my long standing rule. We have had some staffing changes leading up to St Patrick's and our staff is still learning. "I apoligize". With that... More

Located in the heart of Bay Street in downtown Savannah, this is your average Irish pub with a variety of Irish beers (Guinness, Southwick's, Harp, etc. . . and some Irish whiskies. Limited tap selection. Food is very average pub fare and for the most part all deep fried. Irish folk singer livened the place up on a Saturday evening.

I visited over President's Day weekend with my daughter. As luck would have it there was an Irish festival going on in Savannah that weekend. We did not get to attend the festival proper but did make it to Kevin Barry's for the evening entertainment. We saw a Savannah legend, Harry O'Donoghue. What a pleasure. But, the icing on the...

We had spent the last 34 days travelling across the country and back, and landed in Savannah for our final tow nights. we were in Kevin Barry's on a Sunday night, and had a blast. Harry O'Donoghue was VERY entertaining and the crowd was involved. The night was exactly what we needed to relax and have great fun.

Bartenders could not mis our order of seven crown whiskey and seven up. Very disappointed in what we received for our order.

Thank Laurel L
kbpub, Public Relations Manager at Kevin Barry's, responded to this review

Laurel L I am sure when you stated the "Bartenders could not mis..." you actually meant to say "mix". No worries.. I understood. We do not carry 7 Up so what was used was Sprite which has a different flavor than 7 Up. Just something for you to consider. Best Tara More
