When it comes to southern roots and delicious food, Crystal Beer Parlor nails it every single time! Opened in 1933, the Crystal Beer Parlor is Savannah’s second oldest restaurant and has been a favorite for both locals and visitors ever since. The walls are drenched with southern history, the fries are extra crispy and the peach cobbler is the best in the state!

In the early 1900s, the Crystal Beer Parlor originally opened as the “Gerken Family Grocery Store”. Later sold to William and Connie Manning, the Crystal was one of the first American restaurants to serve alcohol after the repeal of Prohibition. Native Savannahians still talk about the old days at the Crystal. Some got engaged there, had their first date or beer, or came with their family for a juicy burger, homemade fries, and creamy crab stew. Many of the pictures on the walls depict scenes from Savannah’s past and some of her more famous and infamous citizens!

Located a little off the beaten path, we promise you won’t be disappointed by the Savannah treasure! With over 80 beers and 26 of them on tap, how can you go wrong?

Some of our favorite menu items include:

  • The Crab Cake Burger
  • My Mama’s Greek Salad
  • Fried Flounder Filets
  • Onion Rings
  • Gawgia Peach Cobbler
