(Very hard to construct, so many great ones!) If you have other places that we should mention, please leave them in the comments below!
1. Mrs. Wilkes
Yes, it’s Southern comfort food, but it’s often the best of it’s type. The cheesey mashed potatoes, the Savannah red rice and sausage. They give you so much food you can pass it around. A little wait for this southern styled spot, but it’s definitely worth the wait.
107 W Jones St, Savannah, GA 31401
2. Olde Pink House
The Olde Pink House is a true Savannah institution that can do no wrong. Everything I have tried there, from the fried chicken to the famed crab stuffed grouper is wonderful.
23 Abercorn St, Savannah, GA 31401
Every SCAD student will tell you MUST eat at Zunzi’s when you’re in Savannah. Think of Subway but 100 times better, not expensive either.
108 E York St, Savannah, GA 31401
4. Crystal Beer Parlor
Crystal Beer Parlor is in a nice part of downtown. You’ll find out that it gets really busy during the week, it’s a family-style restaurant but with a full bar (including bar-area seating). (American/Southern Traditional)
301 W Jones St, Savannah, GA 31401
5. Elizabeth on 37th
If you want a splurge meal and don’t mind leaving the historic district–try Elizabeth. Makes a GREAT spot to take a date, you’re eating in a mansion!
105 E 37th St, Savannah, GA 31401
6. Vinnie Van GoGo’s
Vinnie’s walks the walk and talks the talk. Definitely the best pizza in Savannah and the perfect scene for hanging out with friends and kicking back with some cold beers.
City Market, 317 W Bryan St, Savannah, GA 31401
7. Alligator Soul
Alligator Soul is a hip, modern alternative to the old Savannah Standards, for tourists and locals alike. 1 part cheers, 1 part hip bar, this alligator please all senses–mind body and soul. The shrimp and grits are incredible!
114 Barnard St, Savannah, GA 31401
8. Circa 1875
Circa 1875 food is divine…and you will be back for seconds. If you love French food, don’t miss Circa 1875.
48 Whitaker St, Savannah, GA 31401
9. Green Truck Pub
Many say that Green Truck has the best burger in Savannah, come here to find out on your own!
2430 Habersham St, Savannah, GA 31401
10. Wiley’s Championship BBQ
“I’ve been to a lot of BBQ joints over the years. Wiley’s is at the top of that list. Not only did I enjoy some of the best BBQ I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating the sides were THE BEST I’ve had at a BBQ joint.” – Jesse V.
4700 U.S. 80, Savannah, GA 31410
11. Vic’s on the River
One of the best dining spots in Savannah and the best restaurant near the river. The place stays busy so make reservations. In true Georgia fashion, Vic’s is sophisticated, yet casually relaxing.
26 E Bay St, Savannah, GA 31401
12. Clary’s Cafe
Clary’s Cafe is a modest yet charming local breakfast joint. It embraces its 1950s diner motif and a low-key atmosphere. Not trying to do too much, just serve great food.
