Vibe - Brewery and restaurant located on Bay Street, 1 block back from the river front, so great location. During lunch on a Wednesday afternoon, the place was pretty busy. Plenty of seating in both the dining area and at and around the bar.
Quality - Tried a flight of the 7 beers they had on tap; nothing outstanding, but nothing dismal either.
Service - Hostest and waitress were very friendly, however, as the place became busier, our waitress basically disappeared.
Selection - Typically 8 options of their stuff, though one was not available at the time, and several guest beers. Enough variety to please everyone.
Food - we didn't eat, but looking at the menu there was the typical bar fare with some southern options thrown in.

The bar is set between the (windowed) brewery and a small dining room, and, except for the brewery and a few televisions over the bar and around, is reminiscent of a British businessmen’s pub.

Service at the bar was professional.

Selection is varied but not huge (8-10 taps), with 8-10 more guest beers: 1 or 2 local, most regional, and a few decent national and international selections. Pours of 12 and 18 ounces and German liters are available. Select bombers and growlers ($15/fill) are available for takeaway.

The menu is gastropub, which I didn’t try, but Moon River doesn’t get great food reviews.

A very nicely decorated and sizable brewery. Quite possibly the largest one I've visited to date...

Located in downtown Savannah, it's not much to see from the outside but it is a whole 'nuther experience on the inside. Richly decorated in wood and brass, your welcomed right off the bat with the bar near the entrance. There's seating all around and even more so outside making for one of the larger breweries I've visited so far.

Selection is a tad lacking for such a small locale and the beers we had - a wit, a farmhouse, and a porter where decent enough. I would had like my experience a bit more if the bartender were friendlier, otherwise it's a nice place to visit and witness for yourself.

Terrible service everyone was rude. Wouldn’t seat us because we weren’t eating. There were about 30 empty tables. Beer was just average. Would not recommend. Drove over an hour just to go here very disappointing.

Stopped in today for lunch with Da Boss while enjoying the Savannah Hop On Hop Off tour.

Vibe was good, dark on the inside with a classic English bar feel. Cask engine was available. Damp basement smell in the back. I believe 8 or so house beers available along with a number of regionals as well.

Quality of the beer was better than average. The IPAs were not executed quite to style but were serviceable. Da Boss had the pale which was good from her perspective.

Service was very prompt and good although she did not seem to have much beyond a general understanding of the beer.

Selection was decent as described above.

Food was very good. I had the Creole dish which was outstanding and Da Boss had the slider special and said the roast beef was very good.

Overall a good food stop where one can quench their thirst.

Vibe is amazing. Feels like an old brick building with old time furnishings. Place is haunted and that adds to the coolness factor for me. I spent most of my time waiting and watching for supernatural happenings and that made me pay lots of attention to the overall vibe. Food was excellent. The nachos had average but were a huge portion that was extra cheesy. Comfort food at its finest..not healthy, but heavenly. The chicken and sausage creole was about the best version of a dish that I have had several versions of...really top notch. Our waitress was very knowledgable about the beers and the area. She humored us with our questions about beers and hauntings. The beer had ten varieties and while some were good, most were average to above average. Overall, this was an excellent drinking and dining experience, I just wish I could rave a bit more about the actual beer here.

I preface this review by saying the roof top bar and outdoor seating were closed due to weather. We tried the porter and brown ale. Both were subpar, though not bad. Had one and moved on. The place seemed older and a little dingy. Not too crowded at 5:00 on a Friday. Sat at the bar and received excellent service. $4 and $5 for 18 oz.....nice value!
