Saturday lunch in Savannah

My family and I will be in Savannah Saturday on our way to Hilton Head. We would love to relax and have lunch in Savannah before our college son comes in from Wisconsin.

We would love a local low-key place that has excellent local fare.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    1. For a low key lunch in Savannah you may want to stay off river street; however if you dont mind the crowds check out the Cobblestone Conch House.
      It's at the west end of river street, top quality semi-local fare in a beautiful dining room, great mojito's...

      Easy on and of 1-16 take montgomery street exit, turn right on liberty st. about 4 blocks down on the left- check out SoHo South, corner of Whittaker and Liberty Street.
      As far as greatest lunch in town- B.Matthews Eatery on Bay Street. try the Blackeye pea cake sandwich.
      For a little out of the way I'd suggest NorthBeach Grill on Tybee Island @ the light house. It's a bit like the Salty Dog on HHI.
      I sell produce to most of these places, they all have competent chefs and clean kitchens...

      1. J.Christophers on Liberty is my fav for breakfast / brunch - plus the atmoshpere is wonderful. Soho is very cute and tasty. I do agree with tomatokid, stay away from River street.
