109 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. 912-662-5999: Located in the beautifully restored Greyhound Bus Terminal, the vibe is metropolitan and polished, but still very gracious and comfortable. Chef Mashama Bailey is working her magic in the kitchen with seafood boudin, pickled oysters, and pork all kinds of ways. A front diner-bar offers great house cocktails and just about anything else you’d ever want, as well as delish small plates and local and imported hams and cheeses.
102 E. Broad Street 912-790-7888: Cha Bella dedicates itself to organic, seasonal and locally procured ingredients, which top rate chefs use to create vibrant, exciting cuisine. Guests can enjoy all natural libations while relaxing under sky high ceilings or outdoors on the lush patio.
321 Jefferson Street 912-443-3210: Using local ingredients to create modern, Southern cuisine is the dedicated mission of Chef Patrick McNamara. Noble Fare’s new upstairs wine bar is recently opened and it’s a perfectly relaxed compliment to the refined, fine dining experience.
700 Drayton Restaurant
700 Drayton Street 912-721-5002: With its splashy interior, this is a one-of-a-kind spot in Savannah— savor eclectic specialties complemented by an extensive wine list, while surrounded by original artwork and chic decor. The gourmet menu offers something special for every meal, including the freshest seafood and regionally inspired delicacies, and the elegant Casimir’s Lounge provides live musical entertainment to continue the enjoyment through the evening.
123 E. Broughton 912-234-3111: On the ground floor of the Marshall House, 45 Bistro has some of the best views of Broughton Street from the floor-to-ceiling windows that run the length of the room. The Marshall House might be a historic hotel, but this gem is all about updating old favorites: shrimp and grits married to fried Vidalia onion rings, or the grilled romaine hearts that ignite the exceptional Caesar salad. Most of the menu abounds with regional flavors: local crab, wild shrimp, spiced pecans, and Coca-Cola marinades. But standards like the marbled rib eye are equally as satisfying.
245 Bull Street 912-233-3151: The imported red telephone booth and the British racing green façade give instant authenticity to this little gem on Bull Street. Owner Ron Anderson gets the pub atmosphere and menu down pat with traditional U.K. favorites like Welsh rarebit and Scotch eggs.

Carriage Rides are one of the best ways to see Savannah! With our moss-draped oaks, warm summers, and antebellum architecture, Savannah is not meant to be seen from a car. Public Carriage Tours are hugely popular in Savannah, as guests can enjoy riding in a picnic-style covered carriage through America’s first planned city. These public carriages pick up on the North end of Savannah’s Historic District. Public Carriage Tours generally begin on the hour, and run about 50 to 60 minutes in length. As carriages are pulled by live animals, these companies are very careful with the well-being of the horses, and only run at certain times of day. This allows the horses time to rest. We would be happy to advise you of the scheduled tour times. These tours only need to be reserved or scheduled about 24 to 72 hours out. However, during the slower times of the year, you can just walk-up and get a spot on a carriage. $23.00 per person
Taking a Private Carriage Tour ensures that you get a personalized tour that, with advance notice, can be catered to your interests. As a romantic, private Carriage ride is an ideal way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, these are very difficult to schedule at the last minute. We absolutely recommend letting as know as soon as possible, should you be interested in booking a private Carriage Tour.
