Tradition and creativity collide in the renowned kitchens of Savannah, Georgia, where chefs blend the flavors of the American South with influences from Africa and Europe. Here’s what you need to know about the city’s nonstop dining scene, including where to find the best dishes and foodie experiences.

Must-Try Dishes
Start a meal off with some fried green tomatoes, a dish brought to Savannah by Jewish immigrants. While shrimp and grits may be more closely associated with the Lowcountry cuisine in South Carolina, many Savannah restaurants are also cooking up versions of the Southern staple. Don’t leave town Savannah without tucking into a traditional Southern spread of fried chicken, black-eyed peas, okra, cornbread, and biscuits. 

Pecans grow abundantly in Georgia, making pralines and pecan pie local favorites. Wash it down with a Chatham Artillery Punch, a strong cocktail of sparkling wine, rum, brandy, and bourbon, and named for Georgia’s oldest military organization.

Must-Do Experiences
  • Learn about Paula Deen, the queen of Southern cuisine, during a tour of her hometown, including dinner at Lady & Sons, one of her restaurants. 
  • Stroll the cobblestone streets of Savannah’s Historic District to sample from the area’s best restaurants and specialty food stores.
  • Tuck in for a boozy, history-filled evening on a drinking tour of Savannah, with stops for Madeira wine, mead, mint juleps, and Chatham Artillery Punch.
  • Dive into local culinary lore on a foodie bus tour, with stops at several iconic restaurants.
