Walking directions from downtown locations

Located practically in the very center of River Street, Barracuda Bob’s is within a short walk for just about anyone staying in Savannah’s downtown historic district north of Oglethorpe Street.

When the Georgia Queen is in port, she is always parked just outside our front door (19 East River Street). The riverboat is the most noticeable landmark when you are looking for us. Just in case you come when she’s under way, here’s how to find us:

From the east side of downtown …

Walk west on Bay Street until you arrive at the Abercorn Ramp to River Street. Head down the cobblestone ramp and turn left when you get to River Street. Once you pass Wet Willie’s, start looking for our front door.

From the west side of downtown …

Walk east on Bay Street until you arrive at the Bull Ramp to River Street. Head down the cobblestone ramp and turn right when you get to River Street. Once you pass River Street Sweets, start looking for our front door.

From the heart of downtown …

If you’re all business about getting to your Barracuda Bob’s drinks and dinner and don’t have time to wander down River Street, the best way to get here is to approach Bay Street from Drayton Street. When Drayton dead ends, cross Bay Street headed toward the river. You’ll see a red stone fountain in the form of a winged lion next to the historical marker in front of the Old Savannah Cotton Exchange. Just behind the fountain you will see a matched set of the “Historic Steps” so common along River Street. They’re perfect for thrill-seekers. Head down either set of stairs and hang a left at the River Street sidewalk. You’re about 20 paces from the front door.

Elevator anyone? …

If your idea of fun does not involve steep, uneven stairs that have been gradually going out of whack for more than two centuries, head to the intersection of Bull and Bay streets. Tucked just between City Hall and the Hyatt Hotel, you will find a convenience elevator that will convey you down to the river and back without the lurking treachery of the stairs and the cobblestones.
