Suggested by the Holiday Inn Express staff; we couldn't have had a better meal! Great salad bar and the pork chop / baked sweet potato dinner was great. Plan to make this a regular when we travel the I95 corridor.

We were staying in the Richmond Hill area for the night and were looking forward to eating at a restaurant while staying away from pure fast food joints. We asked the front desk at the hotel we were staying at and she quickly recommended Local on 17. We were very happy with the decision. The prices were a little high but supposedly t ... read more

Stopped back in this place.  My second time.  The first time several years ago left me unimpressed.  This time my wife ordered the prime rib with asparagus, $23.   Was good.   I ordered the porterhouse bone in pork chop and baked sweet potato, $22.  It was tasteless and a tad bit undercooked.   The wait staff and manager were very ni ... read more

We were looking for prime rib on our most recent visit to Savannah. The Local on 17 was recommended to us so we went there after playing a round of golf. We were good and hungry. We started with the wedge salad and it was excellent the lettuce was fresh and crisp and the blue cheese dressing was delicious.     For our main course we ... read more

This place really is fantastic! The food was fresh and the service was impeccable. Antonio was a phenomenal server. He was knowledgeable and thorough; attentive yet not overbearing.

Ate here tonight and had an outstanding meal! My husband had the bone-in NY Strip w/fries, cooked to perfection and I had the Filet Trio w/broccoli that was equally delicious. The Vidalia Onion Ring appetizer was great and the server (Veronica) was top notch!!

My husband and I stopped by on our way to St Simons for Thanksgiving.  We'll be back on our next trip!  The food was very good - fried green tomatoes had a great cornmeal crust and my filet was flavorful and cooked perfectly.  Definitely worth a stop in, if you're driving by or live in the area.

A Veteran owned restaurant that delivers great service with very tasty food. The menu offers a variety of southern delicacies with several beverage choices to wet your palate.

Very pricey for average food and service. Waited way too long for food. The food was tasty but not worth the prices, especially for an off the highway establishment. They were not very busy, will be shocked if it makes it last five years.
