What You Can Expect
Soul food features heavily on many a Savannah menu, harking back to the days when the south’s African-American slaves used humble, rustic ingredients to cook up wholesome and tasty treats. With frying as the favored cooking method plus a ready abundance of local ingredients, the region’s cuisine found its character and the term ‘soul food’ was born.
While hearing about the city’s food history, enjoy several food stops to sample the dishes for yourself. Venues change on each tour, but samples that you may try include stellar staples such as fried green tomatoes, Georgian peach tea, southern BBQ meat, soul food dishes and, of course, desserts! Travel between most of the 6 stops by bus, and occasionally stretch your legs to walk around the Historic District.
Additionally, all tours always include a stop at the legendary The Lady and Son’s Restaurant, run by ex-Food Network presenter, Paula Deen. Serving up the tastiest of home-style comfort food, the restaurant regularly has wait lines for tables that spill onto the streets. Head inside to learn about the food, and sample a taster of one of the popular dishes.
After three hours exploring Savannah Historic District, return back to the start point where your food tour finishes.
This tour was amazing!
I enjoyed the food tour and the food we tasted was delicious. The tour guide we had was excellent, he gave us all some facts about Savannah! The Pirates House was a very enjoyable experience and the bartender was awesome. The Harris Restaurant was a beautiful building inside. The main part was circular with lots of wood and amazing place to see, the food was fantastic too. My only disappoint of the tour was not food related but with the way I felt at Paula Deen's restaurant, Lady and Sons. We were able to take one item only from the buffet table and were shown to a waiting room area where we ate our food. We were not sat at a table like all the other places we visited. The waiting area was small but so was our group so we were all able to sit but if a bigger group was there not everyone would have been to sit down. I just felt so welcomed at the other places we went but at this one I felt that we weren't welcomed and it was too much trouble to have us there. If you want to be part of this type of tour, the restaurants should treat you just like a paying customer as we do pay for the tour. Word of mouth is an excellent form of advertising but I would not recommend this place as their first impression did not impress me!
