A DINING GUIDE TO OUR FAVORITE SPOTS TO GRAB A BITE IN SAVANNAH

Like most places of historic interest, Savannah has plenty of restaurants and dining options that combine fantastic food with their famous Southern hospitality. The Historic District is the best place to find high-end restaurants and cafés serving a range of international cuisine to enhance your stay in this lovely city. Alternatively, visit the Southside District which has many bars, traditional pubs and a good range of eateries.

Savannah’s local specialties are influenced by its past traders when exotic spices were regularly unloaded at the port. Its waterfront location means that crab stews, deviled crabs, she-crabs and other seafood are popular local dishes. Southern cuisine features mainly deep-fried dishes with grits as a staple side dish. However, almost every type of cuisine is available in Savannah from steak and ribs to Asian stir-fry. Fresh local produce also governs the seasonal menus.

  • Local 11ten

    Run by local chef Brandy Williamson, Local 11ten takes its name from the address at 1110 Bull Street. The menu is at the high end pricewise, but the quality and reputation of this well-established restaurant make it well worth the time to visit. The best value is the six-course chef’s tasting menu with wine. Restaurant specialties include seared sea scallops with creamed Carolina rice and chioggia beets, or bison sausage with charred escarole and lemon-parsnip purée.

  • The Public Kitchen and Bar

    Chef Brandy also oversees more casual dining at The Public Kitchen and Bar, featuring deli sandwiches and burgers that are reputedly some of the best in the city. This upscale café can be found on West Liberty Street.
