From Low to High
We walked by the corner restaurant a number of times during our stay. The stone path from the river, took us right by the green and white awning each time we headed towards the main road above the bluff.
It was hard not to think of deli meats with a name like Boar's Head, but we were eager to give the place a try.
It was too dark to see the view of the river out the windows, but we were entertained by our bartender and the other guests instead. The couple beside us, told us about recently seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland and some other travel stories. We had nothing to top that, so we asked our bartender about some history. As she cupped her hands around a mug of tea, she actually did have quite a bit of history to share.
A Drink and History
One of 3 Rooms
The tavern dining room had a view of the kitchen, but I didn't get a good glimpse of the chef. It was an odd arrangement with tables and captain's chairs that could have come from a 1970's Red Lobster. And then there was the chandelier hanging from exposed beams.
The back room was the coziest, but a large party was filling it for a while. After they departed, we got to roam around and study the view of the river and ballast stone and brick walls.
Don found some decor he liked. Lots of reminders of the ships that once carried the cotton away from Savannah.
So we got to find out if the food was as good as we'd heard. It actually was pretty amazing. Our very sweet server, Daniel gave us lots of suggestions. We ended up with chicken Caesar salad, incredibly rich spinach salad and the most amazing platter of grilled mushrooms.
Great Food & Curious Atmosphere
The Dining Blog
This is a blog about Dining Adventures. Sometimes, I talk about food. Below, you can read how this started.
On July 4th 2011, I set a goal to try 50 culturally diverse restaurants in one year! (I knew that was possible, living in the Houston area) I spent the year pulling in friends and family to join me, on some unusual dining adventures. I met some curious people, tried some scary foods and explored places and cultures I never would have otherwise. Even though I met my goal, I learned too much to end my adventures in dining. I have continued blogging about memorable dining adventures of all kinds, near and far... and all the discoveries and funny things I've learned along the way!
Locations and types of dining adventures, are listed further down.
