“What can I say? Leopold’s is an institution in Savannah. At their busiest times, you’ll find yourself waiting in a line all the way down the block, but it is so worth it! Dozens of homemade flavors that change weekly, they’ll let you sample a few before you decide - decent sandwiches, too. ”

“Our favorite causal lunch spot when in Savannah when visiting Savannah - Zunzi's is a South African restaurant. The menu is influenced by the rich South African, Swiss, Italian, and Dutch heritage of the founders, Johnny and Gabriella Debeer. ”

Bistro

“Don't be deceived by the name! whilst they do offer a most excellent range of craft beers to accompany your gourmet burger they also have a daily seafood offering ranging from Flounder to deviled crab and I love the fact that you can order a side of grilled veggies as a healthy alternative to fries. And don't forget to try the she crab soup which is a house specialty!”
