Restaurants in Savannah + The Coast

Located in a nondescript building, Walls Bar-B-Q is tucked away down a side street in a residential area of downtown Savannah. Since 1963, the Walls family has served traditional Southern barbeque like pulled pork, ribs, and chicken with their homemade barbeque sauce on the side.

Part of the Mansion on Forsyth Park hotel, this fine-dining establishment is eclectically designed with alligator-skin chairs, bright orange accent tables, and a large gold chandelier.

This three-floor, 330-seat southern kitchen grew out of Paula Deen's lunch delivery service, back in the day before Deen became a Food Network star.

Next door to the Planters Inn on Reynolds Square, the Olde Pink House restaurant derives its name from the pink-stained stucco covering the 18th-century Georgian brick mansion.

The restaurant's tables are made of teak from shipwrecked boats.

Dine on fresh local seafood.

Down-home goodness is served from 11 a.m. sharp each day: platters of fried chicken, vegetables swathed in bacon grease, and tufts of mashed sweet potatoes.

The tablecloths are made from newspapers and the steamed oysters and Low Country basket—shrimp, potatoes, corn—are ideal for two.

Chef Matthew Roher dishes up Georgia white-shrimp risotto with fresh asparagus and tarragon at this 30-table spot.

Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House, located between downtown Savannah and Tybee Island, looks like an upscale fish shack amidst the lush greenery of the marsh.

This unassuming joint, tucked away by a gas station near I-95, serves meltingly rich BBQ along with Brunswick Stew, the smoky tomato-lima bean-meat combo popular in the region.
