I always come here for great suggestions whenever I travel to a new place, so I thought I would "give something back" to the forum.
My wife and I went down to Savannah for a 3-day weekend for our 1st wedding anniversary. Here is a rundown of what we did and where we ate.
Zeigler House- we checked in late (10pm) Thursday night, but the host was very accommadating and even took several minutes to show us a map of the historic district and offered to make us dinner reservations. The house itself was very nice, we had a ground-level room with our own door which worked well for us. Jackie, the host, makes fresh baked goods each day and brings them to your room rather than preparing a hot breakfast for the guests. The baked goods were delicious, my favorite was the cream cheese danish bars. They also keep your fridge stocked with water, juice, and Cokes. I would certainly stay there again.
Oglethorpe Tours- we took the $10 trolley tour on Friday morning, we had a great tour guide and it was a good way to get our bearings of where everything was located.
Mrs Wilkes- we ate there for lunch on Friday. We arrived around 11:15 and only had to wait about 20 minutes which was less of a wait than we feared. The food was very good, I loved the BBQ beef and mashed potatoes. The family style lunch was $16 per person.
Crystal Beer Parlor- this place was off the beaten path and near our B&B. The burger was good and they had a Dixieland band playing on Friday night. There were a lot of locals there.
Greg's Creepy Pub Crawl- we took this tour on Friday night at 9pm. We met at Six Pence Pub. Greg was a funny guy who did a good job. He took us to about 5 different bars where we would get a drink and he would tell us a spooky story about something that happened there. It was $15 and I'd say it was worth it.
Old Pink House- we had dinner there on Saturday night. I called a few days in advance and got a reservation for 6:45. Our table was upstairs in the ball room. The fried calamari appetizer was some of the best I've ever had. All the food was great, I had crab-stuffed grouper (special) and my wife had shrimp and grits as her entree (its on the menu as an appetizer). I had a beer and she had a glass of wine, we skipped desert and our bill was about $80.
Lady and Sons (Paula Deen's)- we had lunch here on Sunday and did even't have to wait in line at all. We got there about 11:15 and walked right in. We were shocked as we expected to wait at least an hour from what we had heard. The food was unreal, we thought it was clearly better than Mrs. Wilkes. They had a lot on the buffet, but my favorites were fried chicken, baked chicken (best I've had), green beans, and collards. The buffet was $16 per person I believe and worth every penny.
Well, those were the highlights. Not quite as brief as I'd planned, but I hope it helps.
