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.
