During my visit to Savannah, GA, I wanted to make sure I had some good biscuits and gravy. B. Matthew’s Eatery did not disappoint. Located on Bay St just a short walk from my hotel (the Hyatt Regency), I arrived with my 8am OpenTable reservation right when they opened.
Another couple and I were the only ones in the restaurant at that time, so it was nice to have the place almost to myself. They sat me at a little 2-person table that gave me a nice view of the bar and dining area. I really enjoyed the way the restaurant is decorated and the way it highlights the historic nature of the building. This interior has been in its current state since its most recent remodel in 2012.
First, coffee! They brought out a big mug right away and I liked the branding on the cup.
I ordered the Biscuits & Gravy ($9.00) and I was so excited about it. The sausage country gravy was absolutely delicious and had a great thickness and consistency. The only thing less exciting about it was that it wasn’t exactly hot. More like lukewarm. But I’m not assertive enough to complain so I just ate it like it was…… and still enjoyed it.
I’d had some biscuits and gravy from my hotel restaurant the morning before and they were not nearly as good as these.
I wish I’d been seated at a table closer to a window to get some pretty natural light for the photos, but I made do with what I had to work with. Artificial interior lights often cast a weird color on the plates but let’s be honest. Biscuits and gravy is absolutely delicious but not the prettiest dish ever to photograph.
I also added 2 poached eggs for $2.50 additional and it was the perfect complement. What a breakfast!
I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast at B. Matthew’s Eatery and I was very interested in returning for dinner one night during my short stay but unfortunately I ran out of time and space due to my lunchtime food tours with Savannah Taste Experience. Next time I’m in Savannah, I’ll be back!
