Some of the best Savannah restaurants don’t just provide delightful cuisine options, but memories to last a lifetime. For example, if you’ve always wanted to dine in an 18th-century mansion, then The Olde Pink House is the place for you. This restaurant and tavern also offers live entertainment nightly.
If you’re hoping for an experience that’s a bit more laid-back, then look no further than The Rail Pub, which offers free Fried Chicken Fridays and karaoke every night of the week.
