Pie Society

Pie Society is a traditional British Bakery serving up authentic, delicious savory and sweet pies, pasties, quiches and desserts. We are a British-owned, family company with locations in City Market in Downtown Savannah and in Pooler near the Tanger Outlets. We hand-make all our products daily, using only the best ingredients. Stop in for a cup of tea served in a China pot, a handmade meat pie or a slice of Bakewell Tart- a delicious almond cake originating from the home county of our owners!

My daughter and I found the listing here on Trip Advisor, and being Anglophiles, we had to try it! The Steak and Mushroom Pie was delicious, as was the cranberry scone. We brought home some Cornish Pasties and a Bakewell Tart, and I expect those to be just as good. I wish we lived closer as I would love to taste more of their savory and sweet pies. The only thing I found a bit lacking was the use of tea bags rather than brewed tea. At least the water in the teapot was plenty hot and the tea choices were excellent. Just strange not to have brewed tea in an English tea shop. Even so, I would highly recommend!

Wonderful Food, Service, and great Dinner experience.. period. The only downside is the moderate to small size of the restaurant and it's popularity. We had a meat pizza and meat pasta dish. Superior flavors and ingredients. Will definitely be back. The staff were very friendly and very helpful with a small kid.

Splendid Shabu

Shabu-shabu (hot pot) | Appetizers | Bubble Tea | Smoothies What's shabu-shabu? Here's a brief overview: The name "shabu-shabu" literally means "swish-swish". It comes from the sound and action of the thinly sliced meat being swished with chopsticks in the hot pot. Shabu is an Asian-style fondue that involves cooking thinly sliced raw meat, seafood and/or vegetables in a pot of broth. Shabu varies slightly by different cultures and different regions such as Taiwan, China, Japan, and Korea. At Splendid Shabu-- you're the chef! You pick the ingredients. You pick the broth. You create your own dipping sauce. There's no wrong way to enjoy it. How to shabu-shabu? 1. Select your BROTH, NOODLE, and COMBO from our menu. You may also add on extra a la carte items. 2. Once you've ordered, head to our Splendid SAUCE BAR to create your own dipping sauce! 3. When you're hot pot arrives, slowly and carefully submerge some of your veggies and noodles to cook. 4. Using chopsticks or tongs, take pieces of the thinly sliced raw meat and/or seafood then gently "swish-swish" in the pot. You may also use the handheld strainer. **Some seafood may require a longer cooking time. 5. If your utensils come in contact with raw meat, simply dip them into the pot for several seconds before using them. 6. Have fun, savory each bite, and ENJOY! **Shabu fares well with Bubble Tea, Beer, and Sake.

Enjoyed a very good dinner here with my wife. She had the regular broth and I had the special, spicy broth. We both had the regular veggies that come with it and I added tofu to mine. She had pork, while I mixed beef and pork. We added our own mix of sauces from the sauce bar which livened our respective dishes a bit more. The use of the sauce bar is key to customizing your dish to your liking.

My wife noted that the regular broth is a bit plain compared to the other choices, but again, the sauce bar is key. My spicy broth contained two things that I did not like, cloves and Chinese peppercorns, though they did not take away from my overall enjoyment of the dinner. Next time I'll order the plain broth and use the sauce bar to provide the spices/flavors to my dish.

This is a place we'll certainly return to over and over.

Naan Appetit

Reviewed By blueweaver - Honolulu, Hawaii

We were looking for a good Indian Restaurant near Savannah and the Savannah Airport. We had discovered that there is a sizable Indian population in Savannah/Pooler with several large Indian groceries there. We then discovered Naan Appitet.

Their luncheon buffet, dish by dish, is amazingly creative, varied in tastes, and as good as some of the best in London, the UK even.

So we went for dinner. Masala Dosas, Sag Paneer, Dal Mahkani, and more. We've gone back twice since those first two times and it continues to please, and more.

We will continue to go back for more, and more !!

Sweet Spice

Reviewed By Duncan T - Flemington, New Jersey

First let me say that I only give five star reviews to those restaurants that give the diner a truly five-star experience, e.g. Commander's Palace in New Orleans. That said, the food at Sweet Spice is TOPS! We were traveling through the Savannah and wanted to sample the much-acclaimed fare at this establishment. Every positive review was on target. We did take out, so we can't comment much on ambience, but it was a very nice quiet Wednesday evening. There is a bar area (not mentioned, yet, on their web site) and a very nice dining area as well. Our hostess/server, Bren, was delightful, welcoming and extremely personable. We ordered the beef patties, spicy (for those with Georgian taste buds, this was not intolerable - just right), that were delicious. Dough packed morsels that were plenty meaty. We also order the triple sampler (oxtail, beef stew, and curried goat stew) with plantains and beans and rice. The dish comes with beans and rice; had we known, I would have doubled up on the plantains that were firm, juicy, and delectably sweet. [I should mention that my wife and I lived in the West Indies for two years, so we know Caribbean cooking.] The stews were hearty, meaty, and flavorful. We made the mistake of ordering (after one appetizer and the one entree) a side of ribs - OMG - huge and flavorful! Almost too much for us (well, one of us)! We are hoping to be able to stop here on our next trip on the I-95 corridor. I guess 4.5 stars, if I could give it.

The food was delicious authentic tasting Mexican, but the service was Excellent service.. it’s been a long time that I didn’t have such wonderful service even in the most fancy restaurants. The atmosphere was so warm and friendly and everyone was helping out, if we needed something I didn’t feel any intimidation to ask the nearest waiter because several people helped serve us and everyone was SO pleasant. We will definitely return and if you are reading this review you should have no hesitation about going to this place.

Metro Diner

Reviewed By mjrunderwater - Morgantown, West Virginia

This was our first time to eat at a Metro Diner, and we had an unexpected experience. My wife and I both ordered the Turkey breast dinner that included mashed potatoes and sautéed squash. After a rather lengthy wait, both of our meals came out barely warm. We sent them back to be reheated, and after a longer wait than expected they came back warmer but not as hot as we like. We decided they were warm enough, so went ahead and ate them. The servings of all three foods were huge, and tasted quite good, especially the mashed potatoes. The bread was just a room temperature piece of Italian bread that was pathetic. The manager was very apologetic for the problem we had and did not charge us for our meals. I was very impressed with that. Our server, Lexie, was apologetic, also, and provided good service. We will give this chain restaurant another chance if the opportunity presents itself.

Cracker Barrel

Reviewed By Dennis J - Boston, Massachusetts

Nice cracker barrel. Status quo. Price is always right and service is always friendly. This time I had one of their new breakfast dishes; fried chicken benedict. My only complaint about cracker barrel ever is this dish. The fake pimento cheese is really very salty.

Sushi Hana

Reviewed By GAgirl2014 - Kingsland, Georgia

We were sat by hostess, but it took forever to get a waitress. The lemon on water glass had a rotten spot, had to get up and get our own chop sticks and bowl for soy sauce. Despite that, the food was delicious and fresh! Sushi was made well - good proportion of rice to other ingredients.
