I have eaten here several times, and it has always been enjoyable. I have had the pleasure of sampling their IPA, porter and most recently the stout, all of which were delicious. I have never had bad service and the staff seems quite friendly. Most seem pretty knowledgeable about the beers and very cheerful. Definitely a good menu selection. Usual burgers and sandwiches but also some nice choices like the crab melt (delicious) and steaks and such. Good prices too, burgers run $6-7 and a pint runs $4, but only $3 at happy hour. Being an hour away means I can stop in with some regularity and any time I'm in the area, I do.

I visited Moon River on a couple occasions. The most memorable was on a hot, July day when the temp was about 100. Any beer would have hit the spot, but I was unprepared by the quality of the beer at Moon River. The place is really downhome southern friendly. The bar tender spent five minutes just talking about the fouir or five beers they had on tap. He later told us about the brewery and described each beer he served. They have a great beer can collection that I spent some time going over, but the food was the real hit. Everything from fried green tomatoes to gumbo to grilled salmon salad. They also have the usual club sandwiches, burgers, etc. They also have an oyster po' boy that is excellent.

The most memorable beer for me was the Swamp Fox IPA and the seasonal stout. Both were of exceptional quality. I would have liked more of a choice so that I could try a few more different beers, but it was very satisfying, and I will be returning the next time I'm in Savannah.

They only brewpub in Savannah, GA ... hell it is the only brewpub around! The best of luck to them.

The beers were very fresh and they seemed to be brewed very close to style ... you could tell the brewery was paying attention to every detail. They had seven beers on at the time with a good range from Stout to Wheat, IPA to Czech Pils.

The food was decent ... the usual grub I would expect at any brewpub. It is a must stop and really the only stop in the area, I'd like to go back a try more than the sampler and a pint.

The wife and I had lunch here a few days ago. I always order a sampler just to get an overview for the beers. The lighter regular beers (fest, pale ale and the lager) were decent for their styles. The porter was ok, but I really liked the stout. It was a dry Irish stout and a good example of the style. I also sampled the cider and while usually not a cider fan, I thought this one was pretty good. It was not as sweet as cider usually is.The IPA was also pretty good, not the hoppiest IPA I've ever had but was a good drinking beer that I enjoyed. The seasonal beers included a St. Patrick Ale (not bad, but not my favorite) and an apricot sour mash. The apricot was quite good. The sour mash actually offset the sweetness of the apricot. It's not a beer I could drink a ton of but I really enjoyed it.
You can find the IPA and Fest on tap at a couple of the River St. bars.
What I really thought was nice was the fact that the bar will give you 3 samples for free! More places should adopt that policy!! Very good service and a nice place to hoist a pint!

This brewpub is located on Bay street a block off of the famous River street. It is in(as expected) an old building with wooden floors. It has a U shaped bar that is near the front door. The bar also overlooks the brewing equipment whcih is behind glass to the left. Wooden tables and chairs fill the adjacent dining area. There are probably several hundred old beer cans and 5 litre kegs above and around the bar area. Large windows look out to the street and overall the whole brewpub has an open friendly if well worn appearance. The bartender was pretty friendly and enthusiastic about the beer. She said the beer was her favorite reason for working there. They do occasionally serve cask conditioned beers but somehow I have missed them everytime I have been there. The food while not particularly flashy is pretty good. The beer is similar to the food- not spectacular but nothing even remotely bad. I try to go here every time I make it to Savannah. While I have never been overwhelmed with anything there I have also never been disappointed. Well worth the visit if you are in the area.

One of my fav brewpubs in one of my fav cities. This isn't the only great place to go in Savannah but its my most frequent. Located on Bay St. a short walk from River Street it is in a great location. The beers are fantastic ( I will review) and the food is outstanding whether you want sinple burger or something more elegant. I have my official beer taster shirt from the brewery so take my word for it if in Savannah partake in this establishment.............CHEERS
