We came across this place wandering through downtown Savannah while looking for a good beer and some dinner and Moon River Brewing Company filled both of those requirements quite well. As far as I could tell, the only beer that they had to offer was their own variety, but I was looking for a good IPA and they have one.

The atmosphere was good. It is in an old building in downtown one street up from the river walk, but sections of the building had been modernized and plastered, making for a clean yet rustic environment.

We both ordered burgers which were very good and cheap (although they had a wide variety of food on the menu). The server was fast, even though it was a busy Friday night. For beer service only, you are better off finding a spot at the bar in the middle of the room.

All in all, the food was good, the service was good, their house brews were good, and the atmosphere was good. I would recommend this place to anyone with a little extra time in Savannah.

I was really excited to go into this place and get some food and drink. I heard about this place from a friend of mine that lived in Savannah and he raved about it all the time. It is located right across the street from the downtown waterfront district in a historic building. It was really crowded on the weekend night that I was there so that did hurt the service a bit but they seems rather helpful. The beer was pretty good as was the food. The selection did have a couple of seasonals and had some variety but it was not extensive. A good place for both locals and tourists.

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon on Labor Day weekend and was seated immediately. Food wise, my date and I only had the Fire Onion Rings (or whatever they're called, SPICY) but they were very good.

The beer selection was good as they were serving the Honey Bock in addition to the current staples. It was excellent as was the Captains Porter I took in a to go cup around Savannah afterward (legal there). Also sampled on this visit were the Swampfox IPA (also very good) and the Claire De Lune (meh)...

Prices were reasonable and our server was awesome although somewhat overworked...

I will be back again soon. Loved this place.

I love Moon River. First of all, the beer is delicious and what I have tried of the food it is quite exceptional also. Recently I had the Triple hopped (simcoe hops) version of the Swampfox IPA which was available in cask. They always have a unique and delicious beer available in there firkin. Bartenders and waitstaff are very friendly and most importantly knowledgable about the brews. Friday night at 6 I believe is the weekly toast!!!

Try the spicy onion rings if you get the chance and there sandwiches are always good. If you are on Bay Street, actually if you make it to Savannaah, you need to get into this fine establishment.

Checked out Moon River (thanks BA!) while visiting Savannah last weekend.

What a great brewpub! Atmosphere was totally nice, a mix of non-beer drinkers, tourists, locals etc. There was some sort of Bahamas party while I was there resulting in $1 pina coladas and margaritas. I did not partake in those.

Moving on, the beer! Wow, I was completely blown away and not expecting the range of styles or the quality. I first had their Swamp Fox IPA, and it was excellent. Beautifully hoppy. Tried their Kolsch next and found it light and refreshing. After that I left as my gf wanted to get a move on and not watch me drink beer all day =)

We ended up coming back that night (there is a haunted pub tour that starts there, google it, we quite enjoyed it and the guide was very fun) and I recall audibly speaking the words "Oh shit!" when I walked in and saw a sign that had been obscured by stacked plastic cups earlier in the day (you can get beer to go and walk around with it in Savannah, which rules). The sign stated that the Little Chocolate Donuts Porter was currently available on their beer engine.

I quickly realized (and the sign informed me) that this was the beer that won the Atlanta Cask Ale tasting of 2008. My friend had raved about it, and I ordered a pint as soon as the bartender got to me. Amazing. No wonder it won, and no wonder their other beers were good. I count myself lucky to have had it.

Anyway, selection is good. There were 9 beers on tap in a wide range of styles. Definitely something for nearly everyone. I didn't eat while I was there, so I'm not commenting on the food, though it looked fine and fairly standard for a brewpub. The beers aren't super cheap, but then again everywhere else I went in Savannah was the same way, so I think beer there is more expensive in general.

Anyway, would definitely go back and highly recommend any BA's visiting Savannah to check it out.

First place to visit on my ten day vacation....anticipated greatly.
The place was very traditional as far as decor, and we were quickly greated by the host. Sat down and were given menus that were farily extensive but I was more interested in the beer.
I believe they had five regulare as well as five "seasonals". Very impressive beer selection.
Appetiizers were all our party ordered but all were good and well presented.
The only negative was the server could have been a bit more "beer savey" but he did ok.
I was able to try several of their beers, and all were good which I will review as well.
Very good time and very nice place.

In a great location just up from the riverwalk area. When entering each of the three times during my visit to Savannah the bar was packed, and there was a wait for a table to eat lunch or dinner.

The place is rather large, with a nice big square bar right past the entrance. Problem is the crowd waiting for a table are almost standing on top of the bar patrons. The brewing area is just off to the left and visible at the bar. There are loads of tables to accomodate the large crowds.

When I visited there were 8 beers on tap - Black River RIS, Slo-vannah APA, Gene's American Brown Ale, Swamp Fox IPA, Fest, Peachy Sour Brown Ale, a porter, and a Wild Wacky Wit. I got to try all the beers during my several visits, and they were all of good quality and flavorful except for the Wit which I felt was a bit thin and unbalanced. But all in all for a brewpub to have 8 varieties that cover a bunch of styles was great.

We had a few appetizers during the trips and they fall into the decent pub grub category.

The beers and food were a bit pricey. You can get beers to go in Savannah so we always left with one to walk around town with. Service was slow and I was surprised there was only one bartender to serve the large crowd.

A must stop if in Savannah. Plenty of swag too.

We went 2 nights in a row on a Friday afternoon and a Saturday evening.
The entry way is small and it can get crowded quickly with people waiting for tables. This is an older building refurbished with a U-shaped dark wood bar. Since it is an older building the layout is a little odd, but not ineffecient.
On Friday afternoon, my wife and I stopped in and sat at the bar. We were greeted reasonably quickly and we ordered the beer sampler as I had never been there before. The biggest problem with the service was that they did not explain the beers in the sampler. We had to kind of figure them out on our own. There were a total of 9 beers, including a cask brown ale, which all were good. It was 90+ degrees outside and inside was cooler because of the a/c, but it was probably too warm inside for a cask. I could almost feel heat coming off the cask beer glass. There was another brown ale brewed with peaches and aged in a bourbon barrel. It was very good and I had a glass. I also had the SLO-vannah APA and my wife had a pint of the Sly Fox IPA. We got our second pints to go (very cool feature in Savannah). The bill for 4 pints, sampler and appetizer was $44. A little steep and we think they may have confused our tab with another customer's, but since they didn't give an itemized bill, we couldn't confirm this.
We met with some friends on Saturday night. We were seated quickly and the service was efficent. I had the grilled chicken salad, which was very good and at $8 is was relatively inexpensive.
The beers may seem pricey, but with a location in the heart of an expensive tourist area, the prices were fair and the service was better than some of the other reviews. They must have improved. Overall, I would say this is a good stop for anyone coming to Savannah.

This was our 3rd visit to Savannah, and 3rd visit to the brew pub.

We go in the door and its empty except for 4 folks at the bar. We get seated right away. I have held off reviewing this place before mainly because I never judge a beer or a place by 1 try.

Since there was 3 wait staff or more lurking around, we got service at first right away. Since I hit there web site before we left, I knew what they had on tap. Of course they do have a few guest beers usually, and so there not your typical brewpub in that regard. I want to say this place has very good food, and its a good value. The beer is good to great, but sadly you think a brew pub this small, would not rip you off price wise on the beer, but they do. a pint during the daytime is now 5.50, and I hope this is not a happy hour price! Sadly neither the waiter (which is understandable) had a clue about the beer that the web site claimed they had, which in my book is sad when even after he got the asst brew master down, they had no clue about the web site being out of date by 6 months. Too be honest it was the only reason we drove 2.5 hours up there , so was a tad upset the web site with so much detail did not reflect what was really on tap. WHY Have such a big web site, if your NOT going to update it? anyway they get more that 6 tables full get ready to wait for refills of beer. They also need a list of there current beers, sad when they cannot even do that, I know they had time, the manager had time to pass out coasters you think they have time to keep a simple list of beers up to date. Oh well.

That said there were very friendly and we chated (with the assit brew master) about there beers. I did complain about the prices, and he said they use imperial pints, which they do for the beer under 6% abv, but after that you get 8oz for the same 5.50 which is a rip off IMHO. The porter and wit where outstanding, the porter was the best I ever had outside England! the wit was damn tasty. I also had a cask ale that had fermented peaches added to it, it was a burbon aged wit, I believe. Sadly they only had a list of 4 main beers, the rest you need a tape recorder to take in what is they had, I think they had a RIS and DIPA also, but since they would also come in a 8 oz glass I passed. I hate samplers so I did not do that. I rated service as nearly poor because they are damn slow with nearly empty place. If you want to drink sit at the bar, they service is much better. Even in a true tourist town, I don't understand why there prices for beer are so expensive, but I can only compare their prices to Florida, so maybe its a tax thing, but with no middle man, you think they be at 4 bucks or less a pint. Its in a old building, but so is everything in downtown Savannah. !

Sept 2008: Was up here for the Savannah beer fest, with the bros doing a pub crawl, service was much better this time. Beer was better also. prices still too high for me.

Came to Moon River because we'd seen it on Ghost Hunters and were curious. Unfortunately, we got there shortly after the St. Patrick's Day parade and the place was hopping. I was worried we'd have to wait for a table, but we were seated in less than five minutes. The server was very attentive, despite having a number of tables to manage.

Had the hot wings and a corned beef sandwich. My son had a burger. The wings a burger were good, as were the fries. The corned beef was a little dry and could have used a mild horseradish sauce to liven it up.

We explored the basement and looked around the main floor before leaving. Wanted to get some glassware, but the place was way to busy.

Other than that, a good experience. Had the IPA on tap that was very tasty. I'll definitely go back if I'm ever in the neighborhood. I'll just wait until after March 17.

Last time I was in Savannah I spent a good deal of time here. I was competing in a Culinary Arts competition, and after my event I had to wait for the rest of my team while I was left without a car. Thankfully, this place is right across from the hotel and I was able to pop in and out at will. Not a large place, and the food isn't all it's advertised to be, but it was a nice little spot. Good location, right in the middle of walking traffic. If you can make it in the afternoon it is a lot less crowded, and you run a good chance of finding the brewmaster sampling a new batch or running the line for something; I wound up discussing his beers with him and getting free samples. If I ever head back through there this will be one of my priority stops. For a drinking town full of dives, especially right on the riverfront, it provides a touch of class.

It's all about location...this place is right on Bay Street, across from the Riverwalk area in Savannah. Even better yet, Savannah's open container laws let you pop in and get a beer to go (in a plastic cup, of course, though).

The bar is medium sized and it gets filled up during tourist times and days. I found the bartenders to not be necessarily unfriendly, but not too outgoing either.

On my visit, they had an IPA, Kolsch, porter, cider, fest (this was nice and easy drinking and also served in most of the local bars in the area), wit and their seasonal was a trippel. The trippel, named "Dixie" something was velvety smooth. Golden in color, with a hint of honey in the flavor. 10% ACV and will kick you in the butt if you drink too much of it.

Their sampler was a whopping $9. 4 beers, a sampler and an order of chips/salsa was $36. Not cheap at all.

The beers were good, maybe not great. If you don't get a seat at the bar, there is not a heck of a lot of space to stand around it. They do have not bistro like seats outside, though, as well.

A decent brewpub and the only one in the Savannah area. I did enjoy it enough to return a few times, popping in as we strolled by. It was good, clean and as mentioned, in a great location.

They sell pint glasses, t-shirts and other assosrted collector items as well.

This is the bar in Savannah for young people. I liked the size, service, looks, location, and Savannah. The beer was interesting, nothing was a knock out but there was a couple of interesting offerings like the candy-dominated Belgian, and the IPA. Easy to meet people. I did not appreciate the smokers after 11 pm, who should have been next door at the Churchill. It was very busy and bartenders were in charge but aggressive. Not a top 50 stop but certainly a must stop if you are passing through or staying in the ara.

My wife and I were in Savannah for our anniversary, and we stopped in because I don't get by many "brew pubs" where I live. Seemed pretty tight in the "bar" area, where we sat because we were just there to sample their brews (which were interesting). Everything more or less met expectations, except the service left a little to be desired (more apathetic than inattentive). Overall, I wasn't turned off, but I'm not sure I'll be seeking them out next time I'm in Savannah.

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.

Down in Savannah for my sisters wedding and had to make a stop at the local brew pub. Park can be a challenge on a friday night but we managed to find a spot on the cobble stone street in next to bay street where the workers of city hall park. Seating was quite prompted. Beer and food menu at the table. Did have have a spot were their seasonal were listed. I ordered a taster and the two with me order flavored sodas. And thats when the wait started. The waitress apologized about 10 minutes in the wait for our drinks. She asked if we wanted something to eat. So we order some onion rings. Another 10 or minutes we by and she apologizes again. The bar was getting hammered apparently but I couldn't' see it. So 10 minutes later our Onion rings show up and about 32 minutes after we order our drinks they come. The owner came over to personally apologize to us. And asked about our meal afterwards. I personally liked that the sampler came in 4oz sizing. So for $8 bucks I got 28oz of beer. Some of the rings were ok but some weren't fried thoroughly. After the wait we thought we would get some kind of discount on our meal but received none so we had to under tip the waitress. Oh well. I would still stop into Moon River on the next trip. It was just an off night or maybe their ghost bartender was taking the evening off.

this place is nice. they are suppedly haunted and the week before we were there the bartender had an interesting experience where things were moving on their own and they saw someone run down the hall...but there is a locked door at the end of the hall!! cool....ghosts and beer..great combo!

they have good food at a descent price....about 5 in house brews or so at any given time on tap, plus ciders and staples beers..but no bud!!

overall a great place to cool your heels after walking up and down river and bay and seeing the sites...will go back again!

This place is in the heart of the walking area of Savannah on Bay Street in a great restored building. There were lots of people on the streets at night strolling and this place is near all of the downtown hotels.

I sat down at the bar and watched as the bartendress walked by me not once or twice but four times. I finally got up and was seated in the restaurant area (as a non-smoker that was better anyway to eat). It took a while but the server came. I ordered the sampler. The selection of four beers always tells me that they don't take the beer that seriously but the they were all reasonably good if not spectacular.

I liked the menu... better than the run of the mill fare you find at other places. I ordered a turkey sandwich with brie, walnuts and cranberrys. Pretty good. Unfortunately, I never could get the kind of service that synched up with the food so I sat through dinner with empty beer...

They have some great guest taps here... I tried a Dixie Crystal... had never heard of it but it was a good ending to an otherwise pretty disappointing evening. I won't rule it out in the future but won't seek it out either.

Stopped on the 4th of July. Nice location within walking distance of the downtown which affords a scenic walking tour. (Note: only walk around Savannah in the daytime. The crime rate is kind of high; the locals don't walk around there at night.) Interior is pleasant, kind of pub-like, not the "renovated warehouse" look that seems so popular with brewpubs. We visited around 2 pm but even at that odd time we weren't the only ones there. The served showed up quickly and was attentive, but still managed to make a few errors. First, we tried a sampler. He said the selections were an "amber", Wit, Savannahfest (Octoberfest) and Swamp Fox IPA. He neglected totally to tell us there were other brands on tap, but it didn't really matter for the first visit as I probably would have tried the in-house brews anyway. But still...

The amber was certainly no amber. Only after we left did it occur to me that what he called an "amber" was their signature Clare de Lune Kölsch. (Having only tried the Kölsch style a time or two, I didn't recognize it right away; just knew it wasn't an amber.) The Savannahfest seemed a little weak for that style. I went with the IPA which, although unremarkable, was decent enough. I'm fond of more highly hopped IPAs so that may be why it didn't impress me more. I'm not a fan of Wits and have only sampled the Great Lakes variety so I can't speak to how good theirs was.The Captain's Porter wasn't on tap. Disappointing, as I'm partial to darks and really wanted to try it.

Food was decent and about standard priced: appetizers under $10, sandwiches & salads the same; entrees $10-20. All of us (me, my wife & college-aged son) liked what we got. But, another mistake, the server forgot my wife's main course and had to be reminded. At least it took a while to get it, indicating the food is neither microwaved nor sitting under a heat lamp. All our food arrived hot & as described. No complaints in that category.

Overall, I'd say if you live near or are visiting Savannah, it's certainly worth a visit---I plan to return. The house beers are solid, even if not anything to make you jump up and shout, the interior is inviting and the food is worthwhile. If you are planning your summer tour of "Great American Brewpubs", however, I wouldn't necessarily schedule Savannah as a stop.

My girlfriend and I stopped in for lunch on our drive down to Florida for vacation. It's a beautiful location, right on the river and on the edge of the tourist district in a historic old building (a hotel or something, they claim that ghosts live upstairs).

Nice dark, relaxed atmosphere with a number of tvs, seating to the right and in the back but we sat at the bar, right in front of the giant copper vats. Service was friendly and relatively knowledgeable. There were ten taps, half house and half guests. I was surprised to see Hercules IPA down here, they also had Strongbow cider and Sweetwater 420. I sampled several of the house beers and was disappointed in most but the Swamp Fox IPA was solid enough. The food was decent but not spectacular, the same pub stuff you see most places (I had a buffalo chicken sandwich with fries).

This is a nice, quiet place for lunch but I hear it gets a little rowdy at night or on the weekends. If in the area, it's definitely worth a try.

My wife and I stopped in twice during a few days in Savannah. The old hotel building is redone with a nice four-sided bar, visible brew kettles, vintage beer cans, and art from local students. Nice atmosphere.

We had one really attentive waiter and one who we had to chase down for anything and everything, so service gets a so-so rating.

The food offerings offer nice variety. Normal bar food, like ribs, wings, and burgers, are on-offer along with crab cakes, fried green tomatoes, and other southern stuff. Prices are comparable to Applebee's.

I've been to this place on a couple of visits to Savannah, and it's always hopping in the evenings. It's definitely worth looking up when you're in town.

Stumbled upon this place while searching for somewhere to eat in downtown Savannah that offered outside seating (we had a dog with us). We were pleased with the attentive, friendly and knowledgeable service, the quality food (the Rings Of Fire onion rings are highly recommended), and their beers. The three we tried really hit the spot. The Porter, Marzen and IPA are all tasty and enjoyable, the Porter being especially excellent.

Don't have much to say about the atmosphere, since we were outside, but on my trip to the bathroom (all that beer, y'know) it seemed fair to good, nothing amazing, pretty spacious; more pub-like than the high-ceiling warehouse atmosphere of many brewpubs. Overall, a super-enjoyable experience, very recommend to any advocate of beer strolling through lovely Savannah.

Even if there is not a lot of options in Savannah for good beer, at least they have this place! Very historic hotel turned into a brewpub. You can see all of the brewing equipment behind glass from the resteraunt. I really appreciated seeing the Green Bay cheese head on top of the fermenter.

The beers are really well made. We tried the sampler, which included a very well made Kolsch, an excellent Oktoberfest style, a coffee-laden porter, and several other well done beers.

The food is pretty good. What you would expect for a pub. Tried the fish sandwich, and a crab melt. Nothing amazing, but good, nonetheless.

A must see if you are in Savannah and heading to the pedestrian walkway on the waterfront. Decent selection of beers brewed right here and great food.

The place has a better than your average bar feel to it, but still maintains pool tables and a relaxing atmosphere.

The food is, as mentioned earlier, great. They have the typical nachos and dips you see at a pub, but also some unusual and tasty specialty dishes.

The beers vary, get the ubiquitous brewpub sampler to see what you like. The bartenders can usually talk about the beers, but it is hit or miss on the wait staff.

Great pub and brewery in Savannah's historic district right across from the Hyatt. The brewery is located in an old Savannah hotel with quite a history and lots of beams and exposed brick. Several different rooms including one where there is often quite good live entertainment including excellent jazz on one of the evenings we were there. The quality of the brews served was in general excellent. A few more interesting guest brews would be welcome. The service is a little slow and alittle overwhelmed. Unless you are here during the day, you won't get much info on the brews from the staff. The selection is small, but nicely varied. They always have something interesting on tap as a seasonal- we were there in the fall, so it was Tater, a sweet potato beer. The food is definitely a cut above- excellent bar food like the bbq pork nachos, and entrees like chargrilled sushi grade ahi with a maple-soy glaze, or apple-smoked bacon wrapped filet mignon. You definitely pay for this sort of quality, but if you make it a dinner destination you can pair some nice beers with the food. Really an excellent spot to hang out in Savannah.
