Good brew pub. Been there several times. Service isn't as genuinely friendly as most pubs. Decent selection of craft brews. Food was good.
I had a burger, my wife had shrimp creole which was good but way too spicey. All in all it is worth the price.

Great locations right across from the river. Awesome people took loved the feel of the joint. But that's where it ends. Had the 10 beer sampler flight. 4oz each for $18. Pretty decent deal . But the beer was simply meh. Had a gem or two in the bunch. Boo hag, the wee heavy. Rest. Awful. Food. Honestly wish I would have grabbed something somewhere else. Had the tacodilla. Barely any meat. But the sauce was good. Wife had fried chicken wrap. Checked was alright. With a craft scene exploding in savanna ga. There's plenty of other places to go. Sorry. I really wanted to like it too.

Not a fan. This place is definitely a bit too touristy. I don't like to comment negatively, however, the staff was hugely uneducated, I was blatantly ignored a few times. I noticed it was not terribly busy, as the 4 bartenders (blonde male, brunette male, and two brunette females), were focused on pouring the hard liquors for the... what seemed as regulars... rather than answering a simple question I had asked. The flight I got was obviously out of order/not what I was told. Not to mention the beers were decently priced for what was mediocre at best beer. Not recommended.

I was travelling to FL for a sort of vacation and we stayed in Pooler, GA for the night on our way there. So, this was the only place still open and nearby that I could go to. It was night and an hour before closing on a Sunday, so YMMV.

A: It looks quite nice and seems to be a quite large place with multiple sections. It actually has a weird layout and is a bit confusing, but it is very nice-looking since it is made out of an old hotel from 1821. Apparently, the place is haunted and they offer tours. I would say it has nice mood lighting and an interesting layout.

Q: The menus were very nice and there was a separate one for their beer. Greeted quickly and sat down right at the bar. Everything is brewed on premise, so it has to be fresh (right?).

S: Quick and accommodating. I just got a glass of water and a flight of their beers on a late Sunday night though.

S: I can't recall if they had guest beers but they had six of their own beers on tap, so not a huge selection. They had four pale ale variations, an IPA and a Sweet Stout, so not much variety in style either.

F: Didn't have any food but they had some that looked quite good.

V: I got a six beer flight sampler for $8, which I believe is quite cheap.

O: The place was nice and it was cool to at least see the outskirts of Savannah, but I found their beers to be quite mediocre. The IPA was not very flavorful and quite watery, and the stout was similar and didn't have any strong malt flavor to it. The pale ales were worse, but I'm not big into that style.

Went here while in Savannah for 6 pm toasts. The experience was awesome. The brewer was willing to talk to all and gave his toast (funniest part being the news that the hole where the beer garden is going now has posts!). Beer quality is very good and service is wonderful. They have a full line of beers ready for your enjoyment. The food is your typical fair but is still good. Overall, this has to be your go to spot in Savannah to get your first beer and your to-go beer.

I go to Moon River mostly because I love their Rosemary IPA. The other beers I have tried are good, nothing memorable, and their service and food is fair (for the price). The staff does not seem too knowledgeable or engaging when it comes to the beers, and even on slow days the service is lacking. A cool place to have a drink, especially at night. Have not done the haunted pub crawl, but this would certainly be a good place to do it in. For food, there are certainly better places in Savannah, but Moon River Brewing should be on your radar for some interesting beers and the haunted atmosphere. That is what you are in Savannah for, is it not?

Moon River Brewing Company brews their own beer on site, and while the beer selection is rather large, the food left a little something to be desired.

Located in Savannah, with plenty of competition, Moon River does not do enough to differentiate itself. The atmosphere is rather bland, not offering anything to exciting. It certainly felt like a tourist trap to me.

I enjoyed their beers, but in a city like Savannah, where you can get your beer to go, I recommend grabbing a plastic cup, and checking out the rest of the city.

My wife and I visited this place while we staying on Hilton Head island and took a day trip into Savannah. This was definitely a good find when compared to the Hilton Head's Brewery.

I tried their beer flight which was made up of 7 4oz glasses and did not cover their whole selection, american ales, wheat, IPA's, stouts, you name it they probably have it. The food was excellent and so was the service. The brewery is in a convenient location off a main street in downtown Savannah. The brewery also offers to-go glasses for those on the run!
