We've been dining here for almost 20 years on and off and my family for many years prior. Whenever we're in town we make a point of stopping at Loves for great seafood, this trip was no exception. The place is always crowded, but we were seated quickly. I had the white shrimp, which as always was excellent. Not giant shrimp, but large enough. I had the large option, 19 or 22 shrimp. I also had the crab cake, made fresh, and it came with their great hush puppies and fries. My meal was very good! My wife had the crab cake meal and it was also excellent. On the following Sunday, we again ate at Loves with several family members and everyone had a great meal. The pricing is not bad and most families can enjoy a full meal and not leave broke! We ate our first meal around 6pm and got to see the sunset over the river. It was beautiful! If you want good seafood at good prices in a family atmosphere, Loves is the place to go!
Anyone within reasonable traveling distance will miss some of the greatest seafood tastes in the entire state of Georgia if they pass this restaurant by. With the seafood platter, I had a hard time choosing which item to eat next from the shrimp, oysters, catfish, scallops, crab ball, and hush puppies. It was SUPERB! Every item was cooked to perfection as if they had been prepared and cooked individually with their own seasonings, batter, and cooking oil. The coleslaw is the Southern recipe, which has a spicy bite, and not overdone with mayonnaise. The restaurant location and setting is first class also. This was my first visit, and I shall return as soon as possible for my next dining festival. If I lived closer, I would be eating here several times a week. A rare find, and I'm extremely thankful that the owners and management have taken the care required to maintain such quality food.
Ate here this evening (1/24/16) and was pleasantly surprised. We picked Love's off the internet having never been there. Don't let the size fool you, it looks small and there were a lot of cars parked but the place is actually really big. We had a table by the windows overlooking the lake which was pretty. The salad is pretty good with real chunks of bacon not bacon bits. I had the surf and turf with NY Strip, and Grilled Shrimp. it also comes with mashed potatoes, green beans, and two bread sticks. The NY Strip was cooked perfectly(medium rare) and was delicious. The mashed potatoes were some of the best I've ever had. My friend ordered a Ribeye steak that came with mashed potatoes, green beans and bread sticks. He said the steak was excellent. Both of us said the portions were really big, but worth it. Our server, Hattie was a doll as well. Would go back again.
I went to Love's 40 years ago when it was not much more than a little "hole in the wall" and am still going today. As a native, and one who has been to almost every restaurant in our lovely city, I think Love's has the very best seafood anywhere. The food and service is consistently great. I have sent many of my out of town business associates there and they all go back every time they come in town. My children who are now grown and living elsewhere, always like to go to Love's when they come to Savannah. We had a "going off to college" party there for my son and have also enjoyed many great family gatherings there over the years. Not many restaurants have been around as long as they have, experienced growth, and retained their great reputation. It's the greatest in my book! I love Love's.
A few friends and I decided to have a change of scenery and we drove to Love's where we had some very good seafood. Our server was quite good and was knowledgeable about the menu. Each of us opted for different items and all enjoyed their choices. One of my friends ordered a side salad and it was huge. She ended up full before her dinner arrived so other than taste her meal she took it home in a box. Had she realized how large it was she probably would have opted for an appetizer to go with the salad. I also ordered onion rings for the table to share and they had a good flavor but were quite pale in color; I think they could have used some more time in the fryer to allow the outside to brown. Three of us came home bearing to go boxes as the portions were really large.
From the minute we walked up and heard the blues/jazz music playing we knew we were in the right place. Great outdoor patio .... and wonderful indoor seating along a glassed wall with a fabulous waterfront view! Luckily Kristina (a sweet and intuitive hostess!) sat us right in the perfect spot by a huge glass window with a beautiful sunset! The next best thing to happen to us was we had Terry as our server! Terry was so attentive and considerate! Cordial and pleasing ... we truly enjoyed having him help us with our wine and dinner selections! Love's is very lucky to have Terry with them! He presents a genuinely caring person.... who wants to make your meal a memorable dining pleasure! Our experience was wonderful due to the great food and great service!
We live in the Atlanta area but everytime we get down to Savannah or St. Simons Island we make a point of going to Love's Seafood. We went a few months ago and it was wonderful, as usual. We have taken many relatives and friends over the years and have never been disappointed. Our favorite is the White Gulf Shrimp dinner. Now, those same friends and relatives make it a must stop whenever they travel anywhere near Savannah. Our Georgia District Civitans are having it's convention in August, 2011 and we already have a group planning to drop by Love's for good seafood, good service, a beautiful sunset over the river and many smiling faces.. We just can't wait!
I just ate at Love's Seafood rest. The server was great, no she was the best! Her name was Sarah and if you go request her if you can. The food was great and very prompt. I had the Buba Gump shrimp and my friend had the Seafood Fettuccini. It was way to much for one serving. But back to our server she brought our appetizer within 15 min of ordering. Next our meals came out promptly after we finished out appetizer. I did not have to order a 2nd beer. She was that attentive that she brought on with the meal. Sarah is a credit to the rest. And a very nice server too!
seafood restaurant that is very casual. The portions are large and the prices are reasonable. We both had shrimp and scallops last night. The large juicy Georgia white shrimp were delicious as well as the sweet scallops. Substitutions to side items are not an issue. The service was very good for a busy Friday night. Don't be put off if there is a line, the place is huge and tables move pretty quick. Check for specials, they offer AYCE shrimp nights, catfish nights and may still offer snow crab nights.
My husband and I recently visited Love's for our wedding anniversary as we have for many years. I have never had a bad experience at Love's in all my years of dining there. As usual we were extremely satisfied with the service and food and especially the view. Our server, Renee, was very pleasent and not once did we see her without a smile. My family and I have lived in South Georgia our entire lives and not once have we found a more relaxing environment and spectacular food as we do at Love's.
