This brewpub in downtown Savannah is tastefully decorated with lots of dark wood, different rooms on different floors which manage to feel united, and nice artwork on the walls. Service was excellent; friendly, fast, and helpful, all with a genuine smile. I guess thatís what they call Southern hospitality! Beers I had that day were all very competently brewed, quite flavorful, textbook examples of their respective styles. I sincerely think they deserve more props for the quality of their beers. The food is also excellent, way over average for an American brewpub in my experience. Excellent home-made fries, utterly delicious Chicken and Sausage Creole with Romano cheese. Everyone else in my party was delighted with their food selection. I would definitely recommend a stopover at Moon River when anywhere in the vicinity of Savannah.

Nice atmosphere lots of old wood and brick, the tanks are right in view. Lots of seating, you can take your beers outside since you can drink on the streets of Savannah. There beer was really good, nice selection. Not too pricey, Iíd hang here all the time if it were my local brewpub.

This is a very nice brewpub. Good selection of brews, and decent food. A fun place to go grab some dinner and beers with freinds in Savannah. If youíre not sure which beer you want to try get the sampler they bring out 4 or 5 oz. samples of each of their 12 beers. the Imperial Stout is one of my favorites I have ever had stateside. A place you must visit if you are in Savannah.

The only game in town, really. The brews are impressive, much moreso now that Georgia is no longer a 6% abv state. Nice atmosphere in and outside the brewpub. Savannahís a great, quaint, little city. Food is good, not great. Not too smoky. Wifeís favorite brew was the porter. Mine, the IPA.

Nice look and feel to the place. Very cozy old bar. Smoking is permited after...8pm, I think, so be warned on that issue. Food is about average but for the price I usually eat somewhere else first. Service is typically good though. The beers are all good or better, typically with at least one big beer and one beer served from a handpump. Itís the only game in town as far as brewpubs go.

Visited April 21 2006 with my brother and joined later by Wunderbier. Lovely old, dark interior, modernized of course with some typical brewpub touches (hanging mugs), nice bar and comfy seating area....service was a bit slow, but it was a very busy Friday so I could deal, and she was friendly with a Scandinavian accent and all....food was quite average, nothing really wrong with it (I had a tuna steak) but no creativity in the preparation....beer was very very good, thankfully. Nothing was mindblowing, but all 9 samples were quite well done, with nice sample glasses that allowed a good tasting; the Scotch Ale, Kolsch and IIPA all bordered on excellent. Definitely a must visit if in the area.

Always good beer, and inexpensive compared to the rest of Historic Savannah. Join their QA team (one-time $20 fee) and get 22 oz for $3 (only $2 during happy hour!). Youíll recoup your investment in two weeks. Mugs arenít $25 as related below -- itís that you only get your beer served in a 22 oz mug if youíve paid the QA membership; otherwise you get a 20 oz pint glass (still a great deal at $4/$3 HH). Very good food for the price; of course itís pub food, not sure what those below were expecting. Service can be a bit slow at times, but just relax and enjoy the beer and atmosphere. Definitely the place to go in downtown Savannah.

I didnít eat, but I rather liked the beer and the layout and feel of the place. Itís definitely worth a look see in Savannah.

Decent beer, excellent location and setting, large facilities, somewhat poor service because the place is always understaffed. Noisy in the evenings, good for hanging out and having fun. Do yourself a favor and eat elsewhere though, especially if you want seafood. Go down to the riverwalk and eat there instead.

Go here for the beer but bypass it and head next door to Chuchillís for food. Most food here seemed to come out of a plastic tub from a large warehouse grocery chain. The service on a Sunday lunchtime was terrible. Either our server was overtaxed or inexperienced. One of our group had to go get their own soft drink refill since we couldnít find a server. The onion rings arrived soft and grease-soaked. They might have been good ten minutes earlier but a heat lamp is death to rings. The cheese dip appetizer with garlic, scallions and sun-dried tomatoes was good but microwaved. The sandwiches where all mediocre. Out of the five of us eating, I think my knockwurst was the best but sure wish they could have gotten it to me while I still had some Fest beer to drink with it. I also wish they had some decent mustard. We didnít even consider dessert so I canít comment on that. The most disappointing thing was that Moon River used to have really good food including a cream of peanut soup. Now everything just seems "ordinary." If you like the beer and live in town then consider the QA Team. You pay a one-time $20 fee and can then get 20-oz beers for $3 at happy hour. You canít knock the ambiance though. The pub is in an old building in the historic district and they honor that heritage. They have some very interesting local art on the walls and the brewing room is front and center.
