Went last Saturday night. Called ahead at 4:45 for party of nine. Arrived at 6 and were seated at 7. Had drinks and opportunity to talk, during the wait, before dinner. Worked for us.
BTW it appeared that coming around 7:30 might have had a short wait.
Oh yes, the food was great!

We went last night after the Bach With A Beat concert. Called ahead when we left Savannah Center, had just a 5 minute wait for our party of five at 8:00. Gotta love the Mac & Cheese

Sand Bar is a great place to hang and enjoy the day. Awesome atmosphere...

Went there for dinner Wednesday night. Got there around 5:30 and the place was packed inside and outside. Tried to call earlier to make a reservation and they were not taking any. We, party of 6, waited outside and finally had to go inside as the weather cooled down. Packed inside also with people waiting. We were finally seated 2 hours later, around 7:30. Main problem was there were large parties of 12 or 18 that were seated, so serving time and the lack of tables for smaller groups were used up.
Once seated though waitress was right there to take food and drink orders, and our dinners were served in a short amount of time.
It seems as thought the restaurant is going to have to limit the number of large parties to be seated at the prime time of the dinner hour. We did see a number of people leave when given the waiting time.
Food was very good with a varied and unique choices.

Was there last Friday. Party of 10, we called ahead. Got there at 5, seated at 6, orders taken at 625, food was served at 740. We are thinking that the kitchen can't handle the load. On our way out (about 830-ish), I overheard someone remark "how can there be a 45 minute wait when they have open tables?"

We sat upstairs with a great view of the lake and beach. The setting and view is the big selling point.

IMO the food was OK and flavorful, I had the salmon. One of our group had the shrimp and grits, which he said was overly creamy and somewhat cold. I took his word, I'm not a grits person....

Our opinions may be tainted due to how long it took to be served....

Just to be accurate, Eaton's Beach is not a new restaurant. It has been there for years since the early 1900's at that same spot. It has just been modernized over the last year.

They don't take reservations...................call ahead and ask to be put on their list.
Doubt they will be limiting any parties.
Those people that left, had that choice, wait or leave. This is not the fault of the restaurant.
