Restaurant recommendations

We will be in Charleston for just two days and driving to Savannah. I always get the best recommendations from Tripadvisor forums. Could someone recommend a few restaurant choices? We would really like some Southern food that is not heavy on seafood. Our budget is open to either casual or fine dining. We would like something in Charleston and maybe a few suggestions between Charleston and Savannah. We are staying in historic area, but will have a car and we are willing to venture out a bit. THANKS

Most of the restaurants that are regularly discussed on this forum will give you "southern" with or without seafood.

Are you talking "southern" as in fried chicken, potatoes, greens, that sort of thing, or the "farm to table" that many of our local restaurants have become famous for?

There's not much in the way of restaurants between Charleston and Savannah, best to swing over to Beaufort for lunch on the way.

All the very best restaurants are in the historic district. Since we are right on the ocean, all the restaurants will have seafood, but will also have other options as well. For restaurants in the historic district you will need to make reservations about 2 or more weeks in advance. These are the places that all of us eat, plus the tourists and that keeps them very busy. Look at online menus and see what appeals to you.

We just got back from a long weekend. I would suggest poogans porch for lunch or drinks. Very nice. Fried chicken, collard greens, good drinks.
