Chart House: Savannah, GA

On a Saturday afternoon in Savannah, GA we happened to be enjoying the "First Saturday" on the River Walk. If you've ever been there, you know there is no shortage of places to eat when one gets hungry. We wanted to sit outside and enjoy the lovely day so we ended up choosing the Chart House and grabbing a table on their outdoor balcony overlooking the river. Upon browsing the menu we quickly realized that it was going to be an expensive lunch. We made the 3 kids all share one kids meal ($8 a pop!!!) and the Hubbie and I chose 2 meals to share. At $12.99 a piece for those...they were the cheapest options on the menu!!

Lobster & Shrimp Spring Rolls chilled and hand rolled in rice paper with cabbage, cucumber & capellini, served with citrus chili dipping sauce. $12.99
I wanted something lighter so I chose the appetizer of Lobster and Shrimp Spring Rolls. I ended up taking half of the noodles out of my two rolls (the other two were for the hubby) to give to my 21-month-old, but what was left of it was good. The dipping sauce was fantastic but I felt like the shrimp overpowered the lobster which was disappointing.
Lobster Grilled Cheese served with lobster bisque for dipping. $12.99
We both had wanted to try the Lobster Grilled Cheese so that is what the Hubby ordered up. He was instantly amazed and I was afraid I wasn't going to get to enjoy my half! But, he did follow through with the deal and I gotta say...that sandwich was amazing. What really made it phenomenal was the side of lobster bisque served for dipping. It added so much flavor and depth. Yummm.The only thing I can't figure out is whether I liked the tomato on it or not. At points I felt like it took away from the flavor of the lobster but then again, it added something to the sandwich. Regardless of my tomato confusion, overall it was one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten.

Bottom line...there are a lot of restaurants in Savannah and in the River area specifically. I'd like to try more of them before I'd go back to the Chart House, but I would recommend it and I would absolutely go back again. It was a bit on the expensive side in my opinion (especially the kids meals), but considering the location and fresh, quality seafood used, I can somewhat understand it. If you're willing to spend a bit more for good food, good service and a good atmosphere, then you should check it out!
