Welcome to Sorry Charlie’s, Savannah’s premier oyster bar, serving fresh local seafood with an emphasis on southern regional flavors. Like Savannah, Sorry Charlie’s is a little bit southern and a little bit of the sea. Our menu reflects that with items such as hot boiled peanuts, pimento cheese cornbread, Lowcountry Boil, as well as Po’ Boys and the freshest oysters — sourced both locally and from all over the country — served raw on the half shell or roasted. Housed in one of the oldest commercial buildings in the state of Georgia, overlooking beautiful Ellis Square, we pride ourselves on great food, great cocktails, and friendly, detailed service. Come watch a game at the bar and choose from our extensive draft selection, or settle in at a table on our rooftop and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine or one of our signature rum cocktails. We promise you’ll enjoy your time with us, and we hope to see you soon.
