Restaurant suggestions?

Best restaurants for entrees around $15 per person, in historic district?

Been to The Pirates House many times and really don't want to revisit.

Would like to get some seafood in a nice atmosphere.

On the other hand, do I just cough up the money and spring for The Olde Pink House or Garibaldis? Or are there other options?

$15/ per will be tough, unless it's pub food you're after. I personally would just order the cheaper menu item at a place like the Pink House, Garibaldi's, Vic's on the River or B. Matthews. You can sometimes find options for under $20, but expect to pay around $22.

It is my viewpoint that getting an upgraded meal while on vacation is almost always worth it. You can find a fried basket o' whatever for $15, but will you really enjoy it? If it is my vacation I'd prefer to spend a couple more dollars and get the sauteed shrimp as opposed to the Captain D's-esque deep fried version any day. Just skip the wine and appetizers if cost is an issue. On my last vacation my companion and I skipped the traditional bottle of wine with dinner and afterwards enjoyed a bottle we ourselves brought with us in our room and saved a substantial amount of money.

I would like to suggest Skyler's in the basement of the East Bay Inn. You can check out the menu here:


The crab cakes are the best in the city. I would suggest going for lunch - the menu prices at lunch are 1/2 of what you were looking for.

The dinner menu is virtually the same as the lunch menu - they give the same portion sizes, and the price is higher.

Go to an upscale restaurant for lunch and you'll pay about half of what's charged on a similar (if not the same) menu at night. Let lunch be your splurge.


The Olde Pink House, newly opened for lunch

Vic's on the River


Aqua Star, the restaurant at the Westin across the river from downtown. You can ride the Savannah River ferry at no charge & it's a fun way to travel.

If you'll contact me at my SavannahMame message center "box", I'll tell you about a neighborhood restaurant (10 min. from Hist. Dist.) that has the best crab cakes and shrimp and okra over rice in town. And great comfort/soul food and fresh loaves of cornbread with pear butter served as soon as you place your order. And well within your price range.

I walk there from my home, but would drive a long way if I weren't fortunate to live within walking distance.

I believe that part of the Savannah experience includes the many awesome local restaurants that they have and I look forward to trying new dishes when I go. If you want an awesome experience, slurge a little and don't miss the better restaurants.
