What a fun place to discover! The Jambalaya appetizer was wonderful and the following entrees were just as good. We had scallops and duck both expertly prepared. This is a laid back restaurant with delightful service. It is a special place in a lovely city. Don't be scared off by the stairs going down below street level. When you walk... More

After a day of walking and sightseeing, Alligator Soul was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a quiet dinner and good drink. My wife had the shrimp and grits and I chose the beef filet. Both were superb. High marks for everything from ambience to service to quality of the food itself.

Truly soulful - expect a blend of fantastic food, perfect atmosphere and a wonderful feeling. My husband, son and I raved about every selection from Oysters a La Soul to the Red Fish to the Vegetarian. True confession - I fell in love with the owner. Maureen, or Miss Mo, captured my heart when I met her. She has created... More

Hands down, bar none, the best food I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Food, ambience,and staff were all great. I cannot remember our waiter's name, although he has a new baby and is from Charlottesville Va.. he was excellent and could read my husband well. I would call this restaurant my all time favorite!

We are so happy we decided to try this hidden gem in Savannah. We went with our children, ages 16, 11, and 5 and they went out of their way to accommodate our youngest with some delicious chicken and fries. We tried the sampler of cheese, meats and pickled veggies to start. It was delicious! The duck bacon was incredible.... More

I can't believe that I originally had trouble deciding whether or not to reserve this restaurant for when my husband and I were to be in Savannah. The reviews were good but so were the reviews at so many other places. After our dinner there, I would highly recommend this restaurant as the #1 in Savannah. Everything about this meal... More
