Savannah, GA

My wife is going to Savannah, GA, for a weekend with some of her girlfriends.  The latest thread on Savannah restaurants is from 2010.  Can anyone verify the places mentioned or add some?  Looking for any and all types of food.

Many thanks,
Phil.

    We were there a few months ago...
    Old Pink House is still good for food, but service is disorganized. We had reservations for a mid-week dinner & didn't get to our table until 30 minutes past the time.
    Enjoyed the Six-Pence Pub for a lunch.
    Had a really good meal at this place: http://17hundred90.com/

    One of the hottest new restaurants in the country right now is The Grey. Dinner reservations are tough but lunch might be a good choice. The Florence is also a hot new place. B's Cracklin BBQ is very solid along with Sandfly BBQ at the 2nd location. Garibaldi's does a whole crispy scored flounder that is crazy good. More later

    I would highly recommend the following in Savannah:

     
    AJ's Dockside on Tybee Island. This is possibly my favorite place in the area.
    http://ajsdocksidetybee.com
     
    Back in the Day Bakery. If they have the biscuits, get them. They don't make them every day. Open Tuesday-Saturday.
    http://www.backinthedaybakery.com
     
    Clary's Cafe. I enjoyed my biscuits and bacon there.
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/clarys-cafe-savannah
     
    Huey's on the River for beignets. I haven't had anything else there, because there are so many other restaurants, but the beignets are great.
    http://www.hueysontheriver.net
     
    Leopold's Ice Cream. I've never had better pistachio ice cream. 
    http://www.leopoldsicecream.com
     
    Wiley's Championship Barbecue. I've been here three times now, and loved it each time. I didn't try it, but the report on the sweet potato casserole was amazing.
    http://wileyschampionshipbbq.com
     
    I liked Sandfly Barbecue as well during my last trip, although I would try the one in Savannah the next time, which is in the old Streamliner diner car.

    I've never been to Smokin' Pig in Richmond Hill, about 25 minutes from Savannah, but I know it's gotten some pretty good reviews.
    http://www.smokinpigbbqjoint.com
     
    Also, an hour an a half south of Savannah is Southern Soul Barbecue on St. Simons Island. It's fantastic, but I'm not sure if it's worth the three hours of driving.
    http://www.southernsoulbbq.com
     
    And I've just read about B's Cracklin' BBQ in Savannah, which is supposed to be really good. I'm planning on trying it during my next visit.

    Enjoy!

    I also suggest the rooftop bar at The Bohemian Hotel. It overlooks the river and River Street.

    A few suggestions that haven't been mentioned:
     
    A.Lure. Located downtown and specializes in modern southern food. The food here was wonderful.
     
    Wall's BBQ. Located in an alley on the east side, this place is a hidden gem. The barbecue is wonderful and the sauces are among the best I've had.
     
    Fire Street Food. If you like Asian Fusian this is the a good choice.
     
    Zunzi's Take Out had a wonderful chicken sandwich that won the Best Sandwich in the Country Award.
     
    If she has the time she could take one of the food tours. Wall's, Fire Street, and Zunzi's are all on the east side food tour along with a few other stops. It's a great way to try a bunch of different restaurants and to learn some of the history of Savannah.

    I must say I didn't love Wall's when I tried it a couple of years ago. Maybe it was an off day, or maybe it was just a style of barbecue that I wasn't used to. I preferred Wiley's by far. But that's just me.

    I would double-check on Wall's before going.  Not sure they're still around.
     
    Here's a listicle I wrote about Savannah for my employer recently that may help:

    Crystal Beer Parlor is a really cool place. The Greek Lamb burger is awesome

    I can vouch for this suggestion.  We enjoyed this and the "pigs in Zen" was an awesome dessert

    Café Alegre downtown also had really good Cuban food. Wherever they eat Crispy Fried Scored Flounder will probably be on the menu, Its a local thing and very good. Savannah Red Rice is a staple also..

    And if they don't want to stray to far from River Street, Spankys on River Street cooks fresh never frozen tenders. Be sure they ask for the horseradish infused honey sauce. It's very addictive.

    I would recommend Mrs Wilkes Dining Room.  Good, old fashioned southern food served family style.  When we went there they brought out 23 different platters, bowls, dishes of food.  They only serve lunch from 11-2 and you have to get in line and wait as you are seated in a first come, first served basis.  Dining is communal style so you don't know who you will be dining with.  Even my picky kids loved this place.

    For what it's worth, I had a wonderful meal at Lady and Sons. I went for their Sunday buffet however it was over 10 years ago and things could change.
     
    If you do go to Mrs Wilkes. visit  for the historical perspective. When I went with the Charleston Glee club 6 years ago, I found my meal to be ordinary at best (and I'm even trying to be nice about that)

    I just got back from a trip to Savannah and one of the two highlights of the trip meal-wise was breakfast at Hueys on the River
     
    I don't think the beignets were quite as good as the ones at Cafe Du Monde, but they were close, and all 4 of us loved them
     
    The truly awesome thing here was the crab benedict.  A fried green tomato slice topped with a generous amount of blue crab meat stood in for the canadian bacon, the hollandaise was perfect and plentiful (because I asked for extra), and it was served with the best skin on mashed potatoes I have ever had.  The menu says breakfast potatoes, so I was a little disappointed to get mashed til I tasted them.  I'd happily eat a plateful of just those.  Just outstanding.  I cannot recommend this dish highly enough
     

     
    My kids did not like the french toast here, primarily because it was made with slices of muffaletta bread with seeds on it.  I thought it too was great.
