Savannah and Tybee Island Recs - all types of food
My husband and I are going to the Savannah area in the Fall during the week of Halloween. Any food recs in the area would be wonderful - I know Mrs Wilkes is the place to eat Southern cuisine but other than that, I'm clueless. Thanks so much!

on our way back to Chicago from Hilton Head Island, we took a detour to go to Tybee Island to have lunch @ The Crab Shack. Nice laid back place to drink some tequila, and drink some cold beer while sitting outside, and eating one of their massive seafood platters. The platter for 2 had steamed shrimp, crawfish, crab legs, mussles, jonah crab claws, sausage, corn, and potatoes. It was like $40 but well worth it. Laid back, and a neat place that well worth the detour into Georgia from South Carolina.
You're in for a great treat if you're coming to Savannah around Halloween. I suggest you take full advantage of the city's "haunted" history and go on a few of the haunted tours, while you're here. As far as a place to eat, there are so many choices, it just really depends on your personal likes and dislikes... If it's southern fare you're wanting, Mrs. Wilkes is definitely a great place to start. If you're looking for something touristy, fun and would go right along with your visit being near Halloween, try the Pirate's House on Broad Street. For a classy but not too pricy dinner with great views of the Savannah River and River Street, go to Vic's on the River. They have wonderful atmosphere and great southern-inspired dishes. Also, for some southern food that the locals enjoy, get off the beaten path of downtown, and try Geneva Geneva's on 2812 Bee Road (right off Victory Drive, in midtown Savannah). They have the best fried chicken!!
