Audience participation is not only encouraged at this dueling piano club, it is required! Come listen to two gifted musicians battle for your attention (and your tips) as they play songs you know and love. Request a favorite song or a dedication to someone having a birthday or getting married. The piano-players will take care of the rest. This is a great spot to bring a group. Shows start about an hour and a half to two hours after Savannah Smiles opens.
If you came to Savannah looking for seafood, look no further. Fiddler's stands as perhaps River Street's most beloved source of the whole gamut of undersea delights. Crab cakes and steamed crab legs, of course, are the house specialty, but the menu also offers live lobster, shrimp and shellfish harvested from regional waters and a nice selection of more land-friendly fare. A respectable and reasonably-priced wine list complements the menu, and a full bar service is available in both the lounge area and restaurant proper.
Serving both food and drinks and serving up live traditional and contemporary Irish music nightly, Kevin Barry's is a unique favorite of locals and visitors alike. The downstairs area has a large bar. Upstairs, you will find a cigar bar and enclosed balcony that overlooks River Street and the Savannah River—a perfect place to sit and watch the activity on River Street. In addition to a main menu of sandwiches and seafood, Kevin Barry's offers a late night menu for those staying until the wee hours.
Top Deck at Cotton Sail Hotel is a premium bar that offers breathtaking views. Enjoy the lively landscape while sipping on local beer or craft cocktails which are mixed by experienced bar tenders.

Smoked Pulled Pork Minis, Sweet and Spicy Meatballs, The Duck Club Flat Bread and Seasonal Hummus trio are some of the delicious offerings served.
This elegant restaurant is housed in a building that dates to 1790. Formerly a cotton warehouse, as were most of the structures along the river, Chart House is now home to some of the most scenic dining in the city. Take a seat on the deck to observe the river traffic, or retire inside to perhaps the most charming bar on Bay Street. The prime rib and steaks are favorites, and the seafood is extraordinary. For dessert, newcomers must try the signature mud pie. Full bar service and excellent wine list available.
Like most of the businesses on River Street, Bernies is housed in a pre-Civil War cotton warehouse. The restaurant/bar combination has the feel of an old portside pub. With a variety of sandwiches available for landlubbers, the menu also has a selection of seafood, including raw and steamed oysters, shrimp and crawfish. Low Country Boil is a traditional local dish and is worth a try while in Savannah. Bernies claims to offer the best Bloody Mary on River Street, served in a mason jar and topped with pickled okra. There is also a full bar.
Wet Willie's stands out among the numerous pubs that litter River Street. While they do serve beer, the Wet Willie's attraction is the variety of grain-alcohol infused frozen drinks. Flavors range from basic Strawberry Daquiris and Pina Coladas to unique concoctions like Call-A-Cab or Attitude Improvement. Not sure which to try? Mix and match flavors--a Sexy Attitude is the Attitude Improvement layered with Sex on the Beach, for example. The kitchen serves a variety of bar munchies, and the chicken nachos are particularly tasty. Even better, this Wet Willie's location hosts special events, such as Karaoke nights, and it hardly takes one alcoholic slushie to give any patron the confidence to belt out a tune. - Caitlin Fahey
Situated in a renovated building that was once home to the City Hotel, Moon River Brewing Company is a restaurant, bar and Savannah's only microbrewery. A varied menu includes quite a few vegetarian options. Imaginative appetizers such as Oysters with Pecan Pesto and Ginger Cured Salmon with Wasabi are worth a try. Fried sweet potato chips are a house specialty. And of course, your server will insist you try one of Moon River's micro-brewed beers with your meal.
The Boar's Head claims to be the oldest restaurant on River Street, and is located in a building that was once a cotton warehouse, like most of the buildings in the area.

From a seat at the bar, or on the small patio, patrons can look out over River Street and the Savannah River. Kitchen specialties include crab cakes and she-crab soup, and the bar recommends Bumbo Punch, a special rum punch.
