Restaurants in Savannah, GA

The Savannah River formally separates the city of Savannah from the Low Country. It’s not a sharp line, but foodwise, the city is more sophisticated, with less of the coastal Gullah culture and more of a seaport’s worldly ways. It’s definitely an eater’s town. Of course, there is impeccable seafood, two of the best sources being Pearl’s Saltwater Grill and Driftaway Cafe. Breakfast essentials include bacon at Two Cracked Eggs, hoppel poppel at Clary’s Cafe, and buttermilk biscuits at Back In the Day Bakery. For soul food, consider BBQ ribs at Randy’s and shrimp & grits at Narobia’s Grits & Gravy. How about a cutting-edge New American lunch counter (Grey’s Market)? Sweet tooths will find ecstasy in the South’s most famous cookies at Byrd’s, artisan ice pops at Savannah Square Pops, and sundaes at century-old Leopold’s ice cream parlor. Everybody needs to have at least one boarding-house meal at legendary Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room — true Americana. Should your appetite yearn for a taste of Britain — such as steak & kidney pie, Victoria sponge, or Cornish pasty — Pie Society fills the bill.
