Unique Eats and Eateries of Savannah

Hailed as one of the South’s best food cities, Savannah, Georgia, is renowned as one of the nation’s most popular destinations to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day; the oldest and most haunted city in the state; the only city General William T. Sherman didn’t burn on his March to the Sea; and the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts. It’s also where Forrest Gump and countless other movies have been filmed. But did you know Savannah is also the home of the original chicken finger and Georgia’s smallest pie house and pub? 


With breathtaking coastal landscapes marked by ancient oaks, sweeping Spanish moss, cobblestone streets and horse drawn carriages, the Hostess City of the South is the third busiest port in the nation, with a charming reputation for Southern hospitality and an eclectic personality as deep and wide as the Savannah River. Just as unique as founder James Oglethorpe's original downtown design of 24 squares, Savannah’s ever-evolving food scene will surprise and delight, challenge and inspire, and most assuredly leave you hungry and thirsty for more.

Which Irish pub do you visit to dance the night away and sing karaoke at the top of your lungs? What Mexican restaurant has the best Cinco de Mayo party and the largest tequila selection? Just how did the Olde Pink Ho
use & Tavern become pink? Where do you go to eat truly local Savannah seafood or to find Savannah-style BBQ? In Unique Eats and Eateries of Savannah, get the answers to these questions and meet the friendly faces behind the food with local author and Georgia native Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser as your personal guide.
