Savannah Georgia is one of the most charming and historic cities in the US and its amazing food scene helps make it a great destination. We only spent a few days in Savannah but that was sufficient to get a good taste of the area. Below are the 11 Best Places to Drink and Eat in Savannah for your next visit to this southern city!

1. The Olde Pink House

One of the most historic homes in Savannah, The Olde Pink House was built in 1771 and is a National Landmark.  While you can dine inside, the patio space was incredibly charming and where we opted to eat.  A kind, young gentleman gave us a quick tour of the house so we could see some of the historic features, including an awesome underground pub reminiscent of Britain. While not inexpensive, it’s worth the visit and lunch time prices are a good option.  The flounder came highly recommended and I can confirm it’s delicious. Definitely include The Old Pink House on your list of places to Eat in Savannah.  Read more about its history here.

2. Sorry Charlie’s Oyster Bar

Sorry Charlie’s is the premier oyster bar in Savannah but what put it on my list was the beautiful rooftop with expansive views of Savannah.  We enjoyed a happy hour on the rooftop of oysters, hush puppies and peach sangria (when in Georgia!)

3. Savannah Coffee Roasters

Established in 1909, Savannah Coffee Roasters is one the most well-known coffee shops in town.  Luckily for me, they also make incredible tea beverages and we enjoyed their drinks so much we visited twice during our 3 days.  While they are allowing for indoor dining, we took our drinks to-go and enjoyed them while strolling the historic squares.  A unique item you can purchase here is coffee bags for just $5 – creatives could easily create some cool art projects with those!

4. Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room

If you only eat one place in Savannah, make it Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room.  This is your traditional southern cooking with fried chicken, collard greens, cornbread, beans, banana pudding and sweet tea.  They are GENEROUS with their portions – we bought one meal to share at ~$30 and it included so much.  Only take-out is currently allowed but they set up tables outdoors for people to enjoy their meal at. We scored the best table in the house at the top of the stairs. We also had the chance to meet Mrs. Wilkes and she was so kind and welcoming!

5. Fox and Fig Café

A vegan, plant-based café, Fox and Fig is absolutely delicious.  It’s the perfect spot for brunch or lunch, even if you aren’t vegan.  You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu but the Tostadas Verde was delicious!

6. Leopold’s Ice Cream

Leopold’s is a classic ice cream parlor and should not be missed! Walking into the shop, it feels like you’ve been transported back to 1919.  It was hard to pick just one flavor so we shared 3-scoops: Savannah Socialite (with famous Georgia Pecans!), Pistachio and Mint Chocolate Chip – all so good!

7. Collins Quarter at Forsyth Park

Collins Quarter has a couple locations but the location at Forsyth Park (The Fitzroy) is the location we stopped at.  Located towards the middle of the beautiful park, it’s a great place to stop for a meal or even just drinks.  We picked up a mulled wine and a hot toddy to enjoy walking around the park.

8. Cookies from Byrd’s Famous Cookies

Established in 1924, Byrd’s Famous Cookies has been in Savannah for almost 100 years for good reason.  They’re tasty, small crunchy cookies that are perfect for a little snack (good luck stopping at just a few!).  The shop is fun to visit and you can sample various flavors. You can purchase cookies in pre-packaged bags or else fill your own glass jar!

9. Savannah’s Candy Kitchen

We stopped at Savannah’s Candy Kitchen along the river to pick up some famous local pralines.  They are very rich so we only ate them in small quantities but wow are they good! The turtle gophers and saltwater taffy are also very good.  It was so fun being in a candy store!

10. Vinnie Van GoGo’s

If you enjoy pizza made with fresh dough and generous portions, you have to grab a slice to-go from Vinnie Van GoGo’s! We grabbed a couple slices on our way into town since it was late and were full after eating just one slice each – look how huge they are! Absolutely delicious and a gem spot for an inexpensive meal!

11. The Paris Market

The Paris Market is one of the best shops in Savannah and it has an adorable cafe inside too! They offer sandwiches, quiche, desserts and delicious beverages. Definitely grab a macaron! The French granitas are also very good and refreshing.
