10 Best Spots for Late-Night Dining in Savannah: Satisfy Your After-Hours Cravings

Most Savannah restaurants wind things down early, closing their kitchens around 9 or 10 p.m. Fortunately, for those who want to grab some grub after hours, there are a number of establishments that stay open well into the witching hour.

One of the best spots for late-night dining is Betty Bombers, a retro eatery located in the American Legion Post 135 building just off Forsyth Park, where you can feast on burgers, fries, wings and more.

If pizza is your poison, then head over to Sweet Melissa’s, just steps away from popular nightlife hub City Market. The no-frills eatery is open until 4 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday and serves pizza by the slice, along with whole pies, hot dogs and barbecue.

Several reputable pubs keep their kitchens open late, including Kevin Barry’s, an Irish pub on River Street, and Churchill’s Restaurant & Pub, a British establishment on nearby Bay Street.

Those craving something a little different will be pleased to find that several cuisine-specific restaurants are open late, among them Sushi Zen (Japanese), a.lure (Low Country) and Zunzi’s 2 (international). There’s even a restaurant dedicated to the art of the potato, Spudnik, which greets diners as late as 4 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. 

And when all the other restaurants close, head to The Diner on Abercorn, a Midtown restaurant that’s open 24 hours a day. Whether you’re craving a Philly cheesesteak, spanakopita or a giant slice of chocolate cake, you can satisfy your craving, even if everyone else is fast asleep.
