Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is one of two restaurateurs opening a new beer-centric eatery in downtown Savannah.
The 5,600-square-foot Savannah Taphouse on East Broughton Street is slated to open Monday, Dec. 14.
The beer-heavy restaurant is the newest venture for Roethlisberger and Scott Kier, who own several King Street restaurants in the Charleston and Myrtle Beach areas of South Carolina.
“Savannah is very similar to Charleston, which is where King Street Grille originated,” Kier said in a news release. “We saw the need for a concept like ours in the area and we couldn’t be more excited to open.”
The two-story restaurant, in the revitalized historic building formerly home to the Avon Theatre, shoots for an upscale sports bar experience with a hefty selection of tap and bottled beer, a made-from-scratch menu and 28 high-definition TVs.
The taphouse will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. for lunch and dinner. The all-day menu features salads, a variety of entrees, flatbreads, sandwiches and burgers. Some highlights of the menu include Southwest Egg Rolls, Chicken Chesapeake Sandwich, Mac & Cheese Burger and Buttermilk Fried Chicken.
