Hot, new Savannah restaurants & notable dining experiences you shouldn't miss.
Blowin’ Smoke, a popular Downtown barbecue restaurant, recently uprooted and moved to new spot at 1611 Habersham Street. But moving to a different location—a hip indoor/outdoor space that formerly housed the eatery Sol—wasn’t the only change the restaurant had in store. The eatery rebranded itself as Blowin’ Smoke Southern Cantina and changed its menu, offering a great selection of sliders, tacos, soups, salads, sides and appetizers. The restaurant’s low prices and flavorful food have already made it a favorite among locals. Read more »All New & Notable Savannah Restaurants »

About Savannah, GA Restaurants
Savannah may be known the world over for its history, charm and laid-back, sleepy Southern vibe, but the city is quickly becoming one of the East Coast’s premier dining destinations. From upscale restaurants that offer a variety of fresh, local, innovative dishes to neighborhood dives that serve up an eclectic mix of affordable, funky fare, Savannah will not disappoint even the most discerning foodies. Visitors to the city will undoubtedly be tempted to visit the restaurants made famous on the small screen, among them The Lady and Sons and Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room. Those willing to take a walk on the wild side, however, will be treated a surprising number of back-alley barbeque joints and authentic ethnic eateries. The latter may be partially attributed to the influx of international students who attend the Savannah College of Art and Design. Savannah’s proximity to the Atlantic ocean means a steady supply of fresh seafood, and while it may be tempting to get those shrimp battered and fried, the health-conscious crowd will be pleased to find the words “broiled” and “grilled” on just about every seafood restaurant menu in town. Still, the Southern influence is prevalent, with traditional items such as fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits available at even the city’s finest dining establishments. After all, you can take the food out of the South, but you can’t always take the South out of the food. As Paula Deen might say, “Y’all come eat.”
