    Crystal Beer Palor: Big Changes

    by brkilbourne Written Apr 12, 2014

    1st time in many years. Very busy to me, it has new owners & mostly new décor. Menu has plenty on it. Crab stew tasted great but not to much crab. You can even add a little sherry if you want. Turkey Reuben, very good, fresh & large. Home made sweet potato fries really good, not frozen. Desert Savannah Mud Pie very good & huge portion. I had the pastrami Reuben again very good & large

    Leopold's Ice Cream: Old Fashioned Soda Fountain

    by TexasDave Updated Mar 18, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In 1919, Peter Leopold, along with his brothers George and Basil, founded Leopold’s Ice Cream at the corner of Gwinnett and Habersham Streets in Savannah. Between 1920 and 1970 it was "THE" gathering place for all of Savannah, including famed lyricist Johnny Mercer, who grew up a block away. Peter's son, Stratton, left and went to Hollywood to produce motion pictures. He returned to Savannah, however, and in 2004 Leopold's was re-opened in a new building. It was designed to have the feel of a 1930's malt shoppe but also includes a lot of movie memorabilia.

    McDonalds: A Walk-Thru ?! Really...

    by DSwede Written Jan 24, 2014
    Waiting at the Walk-Thru

    Honestly, a Walk-Thru?! When I saw this, I had to round the corner and see the front of the store to be sure. It was confirmed, the sign side the walk-thru was to the side.

    As if fast food isn't already plagued with the reputation of being the lazy and unhealthy way to eat, most have drive-thru's so that people can save a few minutes and don't need to even walk inside.

    But in the downtown area, where there is not enough space to operate a drive-thru, the McDonalds actually has a Walk-Thru. If you don't have the energy or time to go inside and wait in line, you can do so outside on the sidewalk.

    The Olde Pink House: Elegant Southern with flair

    by apbeaches Written Dec 23, 2013

    Historic Pink House couldn't have been more beautiful and delicious. House opened in 1771 as the Habersham House, the soft native brick bleed through the plaster walls and changed the house from white to Jamaican Pink. This National Landmark was built on landed granted by the crown of England. This wealthy planters home held many secret meetings which contributed to independence. In 1811 the Pink House became the Planters Bank the first house in George & housed the money of the colonists. The iron vaults with dungeon like doors are basement wine cellars today. After the Civil War the Pink House became a bookstore, colonial tea room and attorneys office. In 1992 the Balish Family purchase the house and began restoration.

    Thirteen rooms were beautifully decorated, each a different jewel color and decor. Service was impeccable. Wine & beer list reasonable and extensive. Live music was being performed in the Planters Tavern in the basement.

    Favorite Dish: Loved the Goat cheese stuffed artichoke fritters with red pepper and honey mustard sauces. Very interesting flavors.
    Cruspy half duck with BBQ glaze, seasonal fruit and vegetable crepes were a wow. The boneless duck was juicy and sweet, the vegetable crepe had an interesting moo shoo flavor.
    Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Boubon Molassses, Sweet potatoe with pecan vanilla butter and collards was equally awesome.
    Praline basket for dessert was enough for two; filled with ice cream and fresh fruit - it was a perfect ending!

    by brkilbourne Written Nov 11, 2013

    Over the years they have kept up the quality of the food. Set on River Street in a converted Savannah Grey brick old warehouse. Furnishings are nice and overall a romantic setting.

    Favorite Dish: The fillet with Bernaise sauce they have on special sometimes & there Caesar salad.

    Paula Deen's The Lady & Sons:: Not worth the hype

    by LisaD66 Written Nov 7, 2013

    If you are looking to say you went to The Lady & Sons, and you have to check it off your bucket list, then by all means, wait in line to eat there. The food is nothing special at all, nothing more than what you would taste at a Golden Corral. It's all hype and overpriced, as it is crowded and loud. Yes, the wait staff is pleasant, but for the money, you would expect much better quality of food. If anyone raves about this food, then it only tells me about their lack of exposure to finer tastes, they have been around people who cannot cook, or they are just not very particular about their food. The fried chicken is ordinary, at best, and frankly, their baked chicken is better. The BBQ Pork is something you may taste at a Denny's, and their mashed potatoes are nothing to write home about, either. Yes, the desert is delicious, but it portion-controlled, which is certainly not something I find particularly pleasant when I have paid $17 for an all-you-can-eat buffet.

    Again, if you think you are tasting southern food, believe me, The Lady and Sons is nothing to write home about.

    Favorite Dish: Baked Chicken, Creamed Corn and Banana Pudding

    Relax,.,have a burger and REAL fries.: A good bet for local food

    Green Truck Pub and Bell's Brewery Join Forces
    2 more images

    We asked a local where to go one night. Wanted simple supper. We had to wait in line to get in!! That's how good their burgers, fries and everything else were. Nice folks, reasonable prices, good service...delicious food.
    ===================================
    Green Truck Pub and Bell’s Brewery combine forces

    If you read last month’s issue of Bon Appetit, you know that it is the new dawn of the neighborhood joint. The starched table cloths, gleaming bone china and leather-bound wine lists as thick as Vogue’s September Issue that were once prerequisites for restaurant greatness are no more. Nowadays the no-reservations pizza place or the seafood shack down the street from your house has just as good a chance at a feature in The New York Times.

    One of the best places to watch the casual come-up, in my opinion, is Green Truck Pub, here in Savannah, Georgia. Their grass-fed burgers with locally grown toppings, fries that put all others to shame and rotating craft beer selections have become something of legend around these parts, including the sometimes 30+ minute wait to enjoy them.

    Favorite Dish: burgers and fries.... like you've never had before

    Cha bella: It's where you should go for DINNER

    Here is a restaurant you must visit if you really care about what you eat. The food is probably the best I sampled in Savannah. It's just down the street from one of the big tourist "draws" which we passed by in order to try something really special. Glad we did. Give it a try when you really want to DINE.
    They boast local, organic earth-to-table cuisine. They kept their word.

    Clary's: A neighborhood institution

    by Pawtuxet Updated Sep 16, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clary's is one of those cafes you have to discover when you least expect it. In operation since 1903, the interior has an old soda fountain... the tables spill out to the sidewalk to enjoy the air. Terrific because the menu is so extensive... a zillion versions of breakfast.... and reasonably priced as well. Very handy to us because it was at the end of the block.
    Fresh baked desserts, fresh salads, basket lunches, fresh baked croissants....and Clary's Down Home Cookin'.
    It's a nice spot to stop if even for a cold drink and snack and an afternoon "sit" outside at a sidewalk table.

    Had to re-visit this neighborhood haunt when I returned to Savannah. We had one of those breakfasts that stay with you til dinner. It was great.

    Firefly: worth the search....

    Here is another neighborhood restaurant that is something you discover almost by accident. Lots of little sparkling lights are the give away... but you won't find a big neon sign to alert you. We had a delicious dinner here. It is obviously not a secret with the locals. Very busy place...so much so that a few people sat outside on the sidewalk under umbrella tables in spite of it being a very rainy night! The waitress was having quite a time trying to get to them without getting drenched.
    Our dinner, wine and desert were all wonderful...altho I'll leave the food descriptions to Deecat the master of restaurant reviews. :-)

    When I visited Savannah this year we returned to the Firefly and brought my daughter in law to enjoy it. We all raved about our dinners and thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    by brkilbourne Updated Jun 27, 2012

    Great breakfast buffet for the money. Above average quality bacon & sausage. Most everything else was good, pancakes,french toast, grits, scrambled eggs, biscuits&gravy, fruitbar with strawberrys, melon, pinapple, 3 minimuffins, bananna pudding ( not great, made from a mix) and more. Good service & clean. Seperate menu including Shrimp&Grits.

    Favorite Dish: Bacon

    Paula Deen's The Lady & Sons: Absolutely Great!!! Worth the wait

    If your under 10 people in your party, you need to go there to make reservations on the day of your visit. I could not make it at 9:30am, so I got there at 1:30pm and my reservations were at 9:30pm. This was a main point in our trip to the area, so we went. Had two little kids, so I was worried.

    It was worth the wait, by far. They have a great southern buffet for only $16.00. The entrees was much more expensive, save them for the second visit. The buffet had a great choice of items: Fried Chicken, ribs, pepper steak, collard greens, macaroni & cheese, green beans, mashed potatoes, etc. The chicken was excellent & juicy. The pepper steak just fell apart and was very tasty.

    I did get an appetizer because I never had it before. I got the Fried Green Tomatoes. Very very good. The vidalia onion relish & roasted red pepper sauce was great. These two additions did not at all over power the fried tomatoes but complimented them greatly.

    Dessert was small, but so good. The Gooey Butter Cakes were a bit too sweet for me but good. I really enjoyed the Banana Pudding, very good.

    I look forward to going back for lunch, that menu looks awesome. I love sandwiches.

    Favorite Dish: Fried chicken.

    Mrs Wilkes' Dining Room: Homestyleee

    by aqazi Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We'd heard abou this place from our guide book and made a point of dropping in for lunch in June 1997. We were promised traditional homestyle southern cooking and we weren't dissapointed. It's quite a funny place with a mixed crowd. When we got there we were seated around big dining tables so that everyone was split up to encourage us to get to know eachother. This was a really good idea and considering most of our table was made up of senior ladies my mate and I were quite spoilt. You do have to observe ettiquette here (no food fights) and we even had to say grace which I found most amusing and had to bite my lip to stop myself from laughing! The food was amazing and Mrs Wilkes was really nice. My mate bought a cookery book which she signed, which he probably gave to his mum.

    I just check the website and found that Mrs Wilkes had passed away but the place is still open continuing the tradition.

    Favorite Dish: Every thing was yummy from starters to pudding.

    driftaway cafe: wilmington island gem!

    Casual place w/ amazing food and outdoor patios that blow you away! the property used to house a nursury and the greenhouses are now for our dining pleasure! waterfalls and flowers galore! lots of fun and firelight/ candlelight too!

    Favorite Dish: George Quattlebaum oversees the kitchen here and it is sending out some superb delights!
    Sesame ginger tuna tarter on crispy wontons or the pistachio crusted salmon with key lime custard butter. also hand cut steaks and slow cooked prime rib. The grilled asparagus and blue crab salad or the jerked salmon with golden pineapple salsa on spring mixed lettuce are two lighter options I like!
    Jennifer is the sweetest bartender on Wilmington and can shake a martini baby!
