Dinner in Savannah/lunch in Beaufort

Going to be in Beaufort at end of March and Savannah at end of April. I'm looking for an interesting place for lunch in Beaufort and some suggestions for the best restaurants in Savannah for dinner. Is Elizabeths on 37th still good. Which do you think is better--Elizabeth's or Pink House. What do you think is better or as good as either of those.

  1. I've been to both. I liked Elizabeth's and loved Pink House. I liked the cheese straws on the bar. You'll be fine with either.

      I like the Pink House better too

        Sue and LaLa, any restaurants in Savannah you like better than Elizabeth's and Pink House?

          Local 11 Ten is nice. Have drinks on their rooftop bar. Noble Fare is also nice.

            No one has mentioned Sapphire Grille. I was there five years ago. Is it still good? How does it compare to Local 11 Ten, Noble Fare, Pink House, and Elizabeth

            1. re: nfc

              Sapphire Grill was fabulous when we were there two years ago (and the year before that), and I had actually come online to see wha the 'hounds had to say before I made the reservation for when we come back through next month. I think this is the one I'm most looking forward to.

              We found Local 11 Ten to be very good but loud, but we may be hypersensitive to that. The Pink House and Elizabeth's are both consistently excellent, and both on the short list for our trip this year, though the Pink House will be room service the night we arrive as we stay at the hotel across the street.

              We haven't been to Noble Fare but that may have just made it onto my short list. I needed one more place. Thanks!

              Sapphire Grill

              The couple who own Noble Fare were on Paula's Best Dishes this week and that show will air again this Wednesday at noon.

              Maybe Mrs Wilkes. But I was only there for 3 months. I didn't get to try everything.

                I am a big fan of a drink and a nosh at the Bohemian Hotels roof top bar

            4. Go to Plum's for lunch. Go to Saltus and Breakwater for dinner.

              Plum's Restaurant @ 904 Bay St., Beaufort, SC 843 - 525 - 1946.

              Saltus River Grill @ 802 Bay St., Beaufort, SC 843 - 379 - 3474.

              Breakwater Restaurant & Bar @ 203 Carteret St., Beaufort, SC 843 - 379 - 0052.

              Saltus River Grill
              802 Bay Street, Suite C, Beaufort, SC 29902

              1. Plum's has the best sweet potato fries ever but I don't think much of the atmosphere. On our next visit to Beaufort my mom and I plan on going there for appetizers, then to the deck at Panini for our meal!
                The view of the river is so special in Beaufort so I hope your day there will be nice enough for dining outside.
                I wish Saltus Grill was open for lunch!

                1. Since posting the above inquiry, I have been in Beaufort. I had lunch at the Southern Graces Bistro in the Beaufort Inn (recently opened for lunch). it was just what I was looking for--delicious low -country food in a lovely setting. Other recommended Beaufort restaurants were not open for lunch and the ones that were only had a smattering of low country food.
