Savannah for new years eve
OK everyone will tell you to go to Lady and Son's...dont bother you will wait in a really long line to eat a fried chicken buffet. It's okay, but there are good places other than that.
Tuby's on River Street is a good cheap meal and you can sit on the River and watch ships go by. Huey's is underneith Tuby's and is good too. Il Pastischio is pricier, but considered one of the top itialian resturants....yummy food. I like SoHo for lunch or Dinner. It is located on Liberty St. If you want a great sandwhich or salad, swing into Jen's and Friends (located on Bull St between Congress and Broughton) They have the tastiest sandwhiches and serve until late. Pirate House is good food and an interesting atmosphere. It was built by Pirates in the 1700's. If you get stuck on a place to eat, ask the locals. We are nice and will refer you to a place.
I would recommend the Sapphire Grill for New Year's. You didn't mention how many people were in your party, but I found it was a very romantic and cozy spot for two. While we were there, however, they were hosting a larger party at a large table so they seem rather accommodating. Great upscale sea food, not like the normal tourist traps in Savannah (like most anything on River Street). It's a little pricey, but very good, great ambiance and service.
Sapphire Grill is actually just down the street from Lady and Sons so just go right past the lines to find it!
