John McGraw’s Irish Pub

Elevated pub fare, fresh ingredients, Irish flare.

John McGraw’s Irish Pub is the newest installment on River Street, brought to Savannah by those who brought local-favorite CoCo’s Sunset Bar and Grille to Tybee Island. John McGraw’s will inherit the space previously occupied by River Street’s legendary Bayou Café. The new Irish pub will replace the Cajun flare with another Savannah tradition, honoring the city’s Irish heritage, as it is a strong part of the fabric of the local community.

While John McGraw’s is a new stop on River Street, it is building upon old traditions, contributing to the new age of growth in Savannah. Guests can expect a lively atmosphere and friendly faces, as well as an authentic feel. Enjoy typical pub fare, elevated with fresh ingredients. Be sure to stop in and raise a glass, as John McGraw’s expects to open its doors later this year. Sláinte! •
