Anniversary dinner in Savannah?

  • 5

I am looking for suggestions. We are staying at the Bohemian Hotel on the river and would love to be able to walk somewhere if possible. Good food and atmosphere are a must. Cost is not an issue. Thanks!

  1. Local 11Ten and Elizabeth's on Thirty Seventh would be great choices, but the aren't within walking distance of your hotel. Garibaldi's Cafe is also very good (shrimp risotto cake app and crispy flounder), and is within walking distance. You might want to do search on here for other suggestions, especially for The Olde Pink House. Opinions are somewhat mixed, as I recall.

    1. Ruth Chris Steakhouse is close by...................that's just a few building down the street from your hotel. 102 W. Bay St. to 111 W. Bay St.

      I would go to Vic's on the River which is 26 W. Bay St. or one block down the street.

      45 Bistro is highly rated. It's about 5/6 short blocks south and 2 long blocks west.

      Huey's on the River @ 115 E. River St. is two blocks east and another nice option.

      Exchange Tavern and Restaurant is another nice choice. It's just east of Huey's. Exchange and Huey's both would have seating with a river view.

      Bon appetit. Happy anniversary.

      1. I think the Olde Pink House is very romantic and of course tasty!

        1. For an anniversary dinner, shuck the walk, call a cab, and go to Elizabeth on 37th or Noble Fare. A remarkable and unforgettable evening await at either location.

          If you must walk from the Bohemian, the dawg's reco of Garibaldi's is good, and I would also second lala's reco of the Olde Pink House. Littleman's reco of Vic's on the River is also a good choice, although I can't imagine what he's thinking to recommend the Exchange Tavern for an anniversary dinner (a lunch-time sammich at best, imo).

          All that having been said, Elizabeth's on 37th is my hands-down choice for truly superb culinary excellence, an outstanding wine list, and a beautiful 37th street mansion as your backdrop. Tell Greg and Gary Buddha says hi!

          1. Buddah is absolutely right about Elizabeth's on 37th for your anniversary dinner if you don't mind taking a cab. It's just about 3 miles and a 10/15 minute cab ride. I mentioned several places close by that were within walking distance of your hotel should you want to have lunch close by. I should have been more specific about Exchange Tavern being in walking distance but not necessarily for your anniversary dinner. I would definitely take a cab and go to Elizabeth's. Buddah's suggestion of Noble Fare would be another outstanding choice but it would require a short cab ride. If you prefer to walk then Vic's on the River should be just fine. I hope you find Savannah perfect for your anniversary. Happy anniversary.
