Five restaurants in Savannah that will keep you coming back for more.
Savannah is “foodie” town with heavy creole influence. If you are visiting Savannah for leisure, food will play a huge part in your trip. You can’t come to this city without having lunch at Mrs. Wilkes boarding house, but your food adventure should not stop there.
I have listed my top 5 places to eat in Savannah that will keep you coming back for more. We have been to the first three restaurants multiple times and frequent them several times during each trip. The last two on the list are new for us and we can’t wait to go back!
1). The Crab Shack: 40 Estill Hammock Rd, Tybee, Ga.
The seafood sampler, key lime pie and key lime margarita are favorite’s. The crab shack also serves BBQ.
2). Vinny Van Go Go’s: 317 West Bryant Street, Savannah.
New York Style Pizzeria with outside seating or take out available. This place is cash only and they will also deliver to your hotel room.
3). Huey’s on the River: 115 East River Street, Savannah.
This place has better beignets that any you have ever had in New Orleans. Get them with the caramel praline sauce. My favorite dish here is the shrimp and Parmesan grits.
They don’t accept reservations, but you can put your name on the list to be seated with the “no wait” app.
4). Belford’s of Savannah: 315 West St. Julian Street, Savannah.
The fried green tomatoes and bacon infused bourbon are favorites.
5). Rise Savannah Bakery: 10 W. Broughton Street, Savannah.
Be prepared for the line that extends down the sidewalk, but I promise you, it will be worth the wait. The maple bacon bars and fried chicken sandwich with a fried egg and cheese on a potato roll are favorites.
