Fiddler's Crab House: River Street - Savannah, GA

Steamed Seafood Platter: Steamed snow crab legs, shrimp, oysters, mussels, clams, and crawfish served with choice of 2 side items. $28.99
After doing as much research as one would possibly want to do on finding the best place in a new town to eat, the Hubby decided that Fiddler's Crab House was the lucky winner of our final meal in Savannah.With so many choices on the River Walk, this was almost the most difficult decision that we had to make while on our 9-day family vacation. Turns out that our decision was a good, although pricey, one.
Seafood Alfredo: Large shrimp and tender sea scallops sauteed with sliced mushrooms in a creamy Alfredo sauce. Served with garlic bread and your choice of Garden or Caesar Salad. $21.99
The Hubby ordered the Steamed Seafood Platter (top photo) which was a huge portion of perfectly seasoned steamed shellfish of all varieties. I was in a pasta mood so I ordered the Seafood Alfredo (above) which was delicious. I was a bit surprised at the portion size of pasta, however as my eldest ordered the children's Alfredo (below) and had nearly the same about of noodles on her plate. The seafood in mine was fantastic and plentiful, but I'm not sure it accounted for the difference of $15 in the two dishes.
Children's Alfredo. $6.99
Our middle and more adventurous child chose the fried shrimp (below). The children's entrees were good, they both enjoyed them, but if you've read any of my other posts, you'll know that I HATE overpaying for kids' meals. And again, that is exactly how I felt about Fiddlers. $6.99 for some noodles and sauce is just too expensive and 6 fried shrimp should run a person no more than $6.99. BUT, to their credit, the food is delicious and they happen to be one of the most popular restaurants in the most popular area of Savannah, so hey...if people will pay for it (we obviously did) kudos to them for profiting from it.
Children's Fried Shrimp. $8.99

Even after all the food pictured above, we still couldn't leave without dessert. We ordered 3 items to share and between our family of 5, I don't think there was a single morsel left on any of the plates. The seafood was good...the dessert was surprisingly fantastic. The price, again, was a bit steep in my opinion at $5.99 per small slice, but sometimes a person/family just has to splurge.
Key Lime Pie, Raspberry Cheese Cake & Chocolate Cake. $5.99 each
Bottom line with Fiddlers is that you'll get a pretty cool, relaxed, river-town atmosphere with excellent food. You'll get a good menu selection with both seafood and non-seafood items that appeals to everyone. You'll pay a steeper price on many of the items than you might at a similar joint that wasn't on River Street in Savannah, GA...but like I said before...sometimes you just gotta splurge.
