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.

In general, a horrible experience.
Sat down around 6:30 for dinner, nobody noticed us and no waiter for 10 minutes, finally flagged one and he apologized that he was told to cover a different table, manage walked by several times with not a nod.
Finally get drink orders and wait another 10+ minutes for the sampler which at $7 seemed a bit expensive. Order some food and wait again. Food finally comes out (just snacks) and the nachos were thrown together with varying degrees of warmth throughout and the hot dip was cold (the dish was warm though), send the dip back and don't ask for another, muddle through the nachos. Bill comes as we are happy to leave, of course it is wrong, waiter throws hands up and we thought he had left as he was gone again for a while, but finally returned. Spoke to manager who said she wished we would have flagged her earlier, but she was more combative than helpful. I really can't stress enough to people who own these places that the manager should be a competent person, not somebody's friend or relative.
I would suggest just getting beers here and not counting on it for food
Beers Wit, Kolsch, Fest, IPA, Porter, and Cider
The IPA was quite aromatic and drank nicely. The Porter had good backbone and was enjoyable. The Wit was fairly tasteless and had none of the spice profile promised in the menu. The Kolsch was generally lacking the hop profile I am used to in a true Kolsch. The Fest was average and drinkable.

We had a less than desirable experiance at Moon River. My wife and another couple went the evening of Saint Patricks day. We got right in and there were even tables open. We sat down and were told we couldn't sit no reason just that we could not sit. We then stood near the bar and had a less than friendly bar tender fill our order. Although I must admit the beers were fresh and on style. I belive that as a pub in the tourisum district one must employ friendly staff and although this was on a city wide "holiday" the bad moods of the workers over shadow the quality of the beer. I will not return to M.R. because of the poor service.

Went here once with some friends after a movie looking to try some local brews. Can be relatively crowded since it's a pretty common tourist destination, but seats are usually available. They have a typical brewpub ale list of about 10. From what I had....nothing is very good.
Pretty standard pub food. I believed I had some chicken tenders or something else basic. Forgettable food, really.
To the people who mentioned the smoke, they passed a law so you can't smoke indoors anymore, but that doesn't change the fact that this place just....isn't....good.

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.

Had a conference across the street at the Hyatt, so I was pleased to see a sanctuary to retreat to. Sat at the bar for two short sessions. This is a really nice place, reminiscent of an English style pub (like Churchill's next door). Very comfortable. If you look up, thereare the remnants of a once mighty beer can collection lingering. The bartenders were very attentive and well versed on their product, so kudos to them. Had mainly the amber because they really had nothing with any sort of hops. They also had a REALLY strong bock on tap that was too hot with alcohol. Also tried a taste of a sweet potato something or other. Their "big seller", show stopper IPA was not on tap (however I later tracked it down at another bar...not impressed). Did not try the food. Maybe this is good for Savannah, but I'm used to much better beer at a much more palatable price.
