The Resy Guide to Savannah’s Best Restaurants


Elegant architecture, parks with fountains and flowers, green grassy squares, and tall oak trees laced with Spanish moss that canopy the streets: Savannah’s beauty is equaled by the city’s reputation for hospitality and gentility, long history, and of course, its growing reputation as a dining destination.

Taking advantage of the renaissance Southern cuisine has enjoyed for a decade or more, longtime Savannah restaurateurs are enjoying their well-deserved awards and nods of respect for keeping old school favorites relevant — even fashionable — while a handful of young Turks are morphing the traditional with global flair and creating new classics.

From low country favorites at The Grey (which, also check out their insiders’ list of favorite spots ) to vegetable-forward dishes at Fat Radish and creative takes on the bounty of nearby waters and fields at Cotton & Rye, Savannah’s Hit List offers satisfying cuisine for every palate, all while keeping things real.
