After one stay in this city, it begins to feel like home.
Dinner For All
Seeing as how Savannah is built on a bluff above the Savannah River along the Atlantic Ocean, the area is a seafood paradise, not to mention possesses the fundamental ingredients to Southern soul food. Not being one to let a good thing go to waste, many of the city’s restaurants were once residential mansions, Victorian homes, a Greyhound Bus Terminal, banks or inconspicuously located underground. Vic’s On the River, Mrs. Wilkes, the Pirates House, The Vault, Garibaldi’s and Elizabeth on 37th are among the few historic eateries with room for an extra seat at the table.
Savannah is a seafood lover’s paradise.
