Savannah Chop House Restaurant Review: One of the reasons for Savannah’s success is the friendly, family-style ambience. Quick with a smile, servers and managers are knowledgeable and eager to please. There’s a high energy bar scene, especially for the live jazz on the weekends. The main salon features large banquettes, with intimate tables next to the fireplace in an adjacent cozy room. South County types faithfully come here for the vibe as well as the cuisine: an exploration of classic American dishes and forward-thinking contemporary fare (Manny Velasco is now the executive chef). Old-school appetizers like oysters Rockefeller share menu space with progressive early-course dishes like the Southern chopped salad with corn, bacon, pecans and a sherry vinaigrette. Entrées include a quintet of meat cuts and more delicate items like the sea bass with herb risotto and beurre blanc. Desserts are highlighted by Southern favorites such as pecan pie and bananas Foster.
