It was later in the afternoon, so we decided to order a dinner. The menu offered several things from the low country. That means the land, like Savannah, that has a lot of swamp and is near the ocean. In Savannah, cooking recipes were affected by the Creoles, and their traditions were offered on the menu as well. Most dinners were either seafood or steak.
I’m trying to find delicious ways to prepare grouper, so I ordered that, fried. The meat was firm and fresh and deep-fried in bread crumbs. The waitress allowed me to substitute veggies for the potato. They consisted of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and yellow squash and were fresh. Coleslaw was also included, and it was crisp and fresh. Of course, Southern hospitality insisted on hush puppies, and it was a nice touch. That dinner cost $16.95.
Bob ordered a 12-ounce chopped sirloin, charbroiled. It came with French fries and coleslaw. It was very nicely done, but 12 ounces is a lot for any man at one sitting. The fries were excellent. That dinner cost $10.95.
The menu offered interesting desserts like Bourbon Pecan Pie, $3.95, but we’re trying to diet, so we decided not to indulge.

The spinach dip appetizer was pretty good, but not anything spectacular. We both just ordered sandwiches, but we took a couple bites and were ready to ask for the check--it was the worst dinner I have paid for in a long time. Bottom line: save your money and wander away from River Street for a worthy dinner in Savannah.
