It is always difficult deciding where to eat in a new town - especially Savannah where there is so much to choose from and it is difficult to determine what the food is like by scrutinising the menus. We were recommended this place by a...More

We enjoyed our lunch at Spanky's on River Street, although service was very slow and unimpressive. The Hot Chicken & Cheese Pita, hot dogs and spuds were fantastic!

If you are looking for a good place to take the kids after tooling around Savannah in the heat all afternoon then look no further. Their menu is littered with kid friendly options but doesn't forget the adults in the family. The full bar offers...More

Spanky's is highly recommended but confusion on the day we visited (w/ a large group) left me feeling unappreciated. The food was great and the staff are very cool people but it is not a spot for a large large group during the busy season.

Family owned and operated since 1976, Spankys serves up the worlds best chicken finger! The story goes like this, in 1976, a few friends wanted to start a restaurant on River Street in Savannah. Then, the booming River Street we know today was only a dirt road, with only a few spots for dining on the waterfront. Enter two innovative friends who cut up a few pieces of tender, white meat chicken, battered and fried them to perfection, and said to each other 'hey, son, lets call them chicken fingers!' And so Spanky's was born, and its still run by the same man and his family and loyal wonderful staff today! Come on down and dine on a piece of Savannah history with us--we're waitin' on ya!
