It’s one of my favorite restaurants in Pooler. We had shrimp pad kee mao, pork chop, papaya salad and Thai iced coffee. They all came in fresh. Their chilly sauce was spicy and a little salty it was really good though. It made me put it on every dish we ordered. I will visit again

First time here and it will definitely not be our last. The T-Rex roll and Philly roll were very fresh and had a great flavor. The drunken noodles and sweet basil Thia were on point as well.

This establishment was recommended to me as a really good place to get sushi. So dropped in for a Sunday lunch. I started with some Miso Soup which was very flavorful. Then went with a Sashimi Platter for the entree. They allowed me to do a substitution from the variety on the menu. The fish was so tender and literally melted in the mouth. My daughter had a Sashimi appetizer followed by two sushi rolls. All was delicious. Well worth visiting for a very reasonably priced lunch.

Visited 10/14/23 for a birthday dinner. Made reservations for a party of 10 ahead of time, called and confirmed before arrival. When we arrived they seemed clueless as to the reservation after not greeting members the party for about 10 minutes. They also failed to arrange appropriate seating together for the party. Once we were finally seated the server asked us the customers if they should have 2 servers or 1…weird question. Then she preceded to ask who all would be on what checks as she needed to know before we ordered anything even water. We later heard her tell another party it was only her and one other server working so it further wouldn’t make sense to have two servers on 1 party. Once we were able to give drink orders I asked for one of my favorites a Thai tea to be told they were out. About 15 minutes later a party seated after we were by the other server has a Thai tea brought to their table. I asked that server did they have Thai tea she said yes and brought one over. Our food took a while but understandable with a large party. Once it arrived we were missing items. The server mentioned the missing items but didn’t return to check in. So I approached her at the bar asking for the missing items. When the checks were distributed we were disappointed to see that despite her early request to know how to divide the checks they were still wrong. We also noticed her checking her watch each time a party came in after 8:30, they closed at 9:30. I will say the food was good everyone enjoyed what they had but the service was subpar. It’s probably worth taking the drive to Richmond Hill, same food, but with better and more competent staff and service.

Lively chain steakhouse serving American fare with a Southwestern spin amid Texas-themed decor.
Great service. Our waitress was amazing. She went above and beyond to make sure we were good. The food was good, but my veggies I ordered were raw. And the loaded sweet potato is a no-no for me. It had a manufactured taste. I paid for it and didn't eat it.

After a long day of shopping at the Tanger Outlets we were able to walk over to the Texas Roadhouse. Friendly staff and great menu options. Food came out hot and plentiful. Will be coming back next time at Pooler Tanger

Got a to-go order on my way home. Worst mistake. The quality doesn’t make me even want to go in. The blooming onion was undercooked by far. Uncooked batter and onion wedged in the center to where only the very most outside was edible. My country fried steak falling apart and not in a good way and missing one side. Worst of all the rolls used to be my favorite thing. I don’t know who’s making them but they are flat. The whole meal was a waste of time and money.

Everything was top knotch. Service was outstanding. The food was hot and fast. Restaurant and bathrooms were as clean as can be. Plenty of parking. Shopping mall and motels within walking distance. I highly recommend this place if you're in town.

I came here on a Monday night to celebrate my friend’s birthday and I had a terrible experience. Alex was a great waiter but when it came to the food it was not very pleasant. I ordered a 8oz hand cut sirloin, mashed potatoes and a Caesar salad. The Caesar salad had a bug in it, and I didn’t see it towards the end which was very sickening. I don’t like my steak pink so I ordered well done but when it came out it was burnt and tough. I told Alex to please give me a steak that was not bloody but wouldn’t be hard to chew. Kaila ended up bringing me the new steak and it was very bloody and her attitude was very nasty. The manager came and didn’t seem too bothered but he did take it off my check. I will not be returning back to this location.

Funky, art-filled chain pizzeria featuring craft beer, calzones & creative stone-baked pizzas.
Located right next to the Tanger Outlet Mall and right off Pooler Parkway, this location was easy to get to. Very attentive service. The three of us each had a different small pizza. They arrived quickly and were a wonderful taste sensation. Crispy crust, not too thick nor too thin. And a variety of sauce bases. You can find the perfect pie to meet your needs.

Location is easily accessible and plenty of parking. Food is awesome with lots of choices. Atmosphere is cool. Drinks are really good. Service is up and down but for the most part, really quick and friendly. Lots of choices for gluten free or vegan. ITS A PIZZA PLACE-NOT A HOTEL!!!

Excellent experience getting a couple take-out pizzas from here. The atmosphere is kinda spectacular. We'll definitely have to come here and eat some time. The two pizzas were amazing. They allowed us to put different toppings on each half of a pizza, which is very convenient. If you like a pizza joint which offers a large variety of high quality toppings, this is the place you want to go.

My husband and daughter brought me here to have dinner on mother's day. They know how much I love pizza. I'm kind of a picky person when it comes to how the pizza is made/ tastes. This pizza is delicious! I also had their oven-roasted wings, absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is such a chill place to enjoy your meal. They have a bar aside to enjoy a drink. Workers are adorable and friendly. I highly recommend this place for a quick bite or to enjoy a hearty meal with the family or even...dates!

Lots of room for improvement. It's ok on a basic level, but the only other Mellow Mushroom I have been to is the one in Hickory NC, and that one is amazing. The food is so much better than the one in Pooler.

Buffet, pub & restaurant inside the Mighty Eighth Museum featuring American comfort food.
We went here on a Tuesday, had the lunch special of fried pork chops. Good was delicious and all the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Prices are great for the quality and amount of food. I want to go back for fried chicken.

I have eaten here numerous times. Food is good and usually fresh/hot. I'm giving 3 stars only because on this day in particular I ordered a salad to go. As soon as I opened the box there was an odor, the lettuce was bad and it was turning brown. When I called to let them know it wasn't we apologize or anything they responded with we all have smelled the lettuce and it's fine. That could've been the case but my salad was bad. Customer service was not good that day at all.

Giant fried pork chop to die for beans with onions and broiled red potatoes, all excellent and all for only 10 bucks. This is a real restaurant with legit food and very nice furnishings. Not to mention Southern hospitality, of course.

Some of the best hometown cooking you will get in our area. Customer service is top notch! Pork chops, fried chicken and pot roast is a must have.

Casual Italian eatery serving Neapolitan-style pizzas, calzones, pasta & classic entrees.
Terra Mia, located in old Pooler, GA. Fantastic meal!! It looks like a hole in the wall place, but it definitely overcomes that with it service and food. The parking lot is not hugh, so get there early if you want to park close. We arrived a little before 6:00pm and I'm glad we did. No, wait, but it wasn't long and the place was full and lots of people doing carryout. We enjoyed delicious homemade bread while waiting and the meal took about 20min. Worth the wait! Service Fantastic, and super helpful. They serve beer and wine, not a ton of selections but enough. Make sure you come with an appetite because you will get full. We were a group of six, and everyone got something different, including one person who is Gluten-free and they were spot on. Everyone said their meal was excellent, and we all took home extras. I'll definitely be back....yum!!!

The kids enjoyed their spaghetti and meatballs. The chicken and veal marsala was pretty good. Needed a tad more seasoning. We loved pizza, calamari, chicken wings, and the garlic knots. The place is small but, the service is super fast and staff is friendly. Will return to try other items next time.

From the beginning the experience was exceptional. I cannot lie when we got there I was a little hesitant just from the outside appearance but never judge a book by it’s cover. As soon as you walk in it has a nice ambiance and captivating aroma of garlic and Italian herbs. We were sat almost immediately they just had to wipe down the table for five. We are not an easy group to please as two of our five are picky eaters but there was something on the menu for everyone. I ordered the penne toscane which was so flavorful the noodles were cooked perfectly and the chicken was tender. The mushroom sauce with the peas was the perfect creaminess and earthiness from the mushrooms. My sister ordered the shrimp Asiago with what looked like it was topped with jumbo shrimp in a light cream sauce with spinach and my brother in law ordered the lobster ravioli with another amazing sauce and the ravioli was also cooked perfect and interesting because it wasn’t a usually pasta color they used a different type of pasta to give it a different color and still perfectly cooked. The picky eaters had cheese pizza and fettuccine and were equally as pleased. We were served by a friendly server she gave her name but I couldn’t catch it. She had short hair and helped me figure out what plate I saw when I first entered that looked incredibly appetizing which it was. I’m sorry I didn’t remember her name she may have been Latin or Italian because I heard her speak another language. She made the experience memorable and we enjoyed the garlic knots they provide for the table. We came in for my sisters 21st birthday dinner and we’re so happy with the experience and especially the food. We will definitely be back anytime we’re in the area! Thank you for making our family dinner so special. I will recommend this place to anyone planning a trip near Savannah.

Came in here for lunch for the first time and loved it . The food was absolutely delicious. The portions were huge and had to take most of it home. The chicken Pad Thai was amazing and went great with the Tom Yum Goong. The service was excellent. 10/10 I highly recommend coming here if you are in the Pooler area.

Love! Love! Food was delicious! We got Pho and Pad Thai and the pho broth was so refreshing and delicious! Pad Thai was on point, juicy and flavorful! We got there a little after 5pm and it got busy around 5:15, the dining room is small so get there early so you can enjoy your pho!

Lunch specials, great prices, perfect portion sizes, fantastic food and the most amazing service. No seriously, our server was working the phone, carry out and the entire dining room (during the lunch rush) and she killed it! We had Thai Tea x2 and they were both good. For starters we tried, the Spring Rolls, the Chicken Wings and the Summer Rolls because when you’re a foodie, you can’t just order one appetizer. They were amazing and totally worth ordering again. Don’t forget to ask for the chili oil. The Summer rolls were my personal favorite. For our entrees we tried the Spicy Lemongrass Beef, it was very tender, had a good balance of tang and spice and the lemongrass wasn’t overpowering. Pho Combination, (no tripe, not a fan of tripe) all I can say is I want more, and I want it now! If you like Pho, you will love this. The broth was so good. As were the slices of beef and meatball and the noodles were not overcooked. If you have not tried this place yet, you are missing out.

Food is good. Had fried egg rolls, shrimp summer rolls, and seafood pho. I enjoyed the food very much. Service was a little slow due to the hostess doing everything by herself. But over my best restaurant to eat in the Savannah area so far.

This was really bad! Pricing is confusing. But worst of all was the food. Arby's Greek gyros actually taste better than the gyros here. The steak rolls were sooo greasy and tasted awful. Just not our cup of tea. The girl that took our order was great though!!

Our 1st time eating here and it was awesome! From the start our cashier was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and had personal recommendations and opinions which was very helpful. We both ended up with an XL Gyro that was massive but still came with a side, I opted for Greek Fries (oh my goodness, oh my goodness!!!!) and my wife got a side salad. Overall a great Mediterranean spot with great food. The food is prepared in front of you and all the staff we encountered were very pleasant, including Dan the owner. There are dessert options like baklava and cheese cake. We will definitely be going back!

We were on a road trip and took a break to walk around the outlet mall. Before getting back on the road, we wanted a quick but healthy option to grab some food. This placed popped up on our Yelp list. I loved that it was close to the outlet mall but with a separate parking lot to avoid some of the crowds. When we walked in, there was no wait to place an order. Everybody in my family was able to find something to eat, including me, the pescatarian, and my son who is gluten free. All of the food was prepared exactly as requested. They made sure to change their gloves when preparing my son's food. Everything was hot and good. The only slight disappointment was the fries. While I am typically a fan of shoestring fries, these lacked flavor. I definitely plan to add this chain to our list of places to visit whenever we are in the area.

This was my first experience. The staff was awesome, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The environment was clean with lots of soft lighting. The staff welcomed questions and demonstrated great patience. Thank you for a great experience.

The food presentation was horrible both times that we ordered from this restaurant. It was as if someone threw the food into the container and purposely shook it.The portion sizes are ridiculous. I paid $17 per plate for it to look like this. The saving grace was that the shrimp was very flavorful and the Baklava Cheesecake is delicious.
