What are your opinions on Soul Gastrolounge and Savannah Red? Our trip is all planned and I am trying to finalize the last few reservations.

  1. Are you trying to decide between the two? If so, just be aware that they couldn't be more different. Savannah Red is a fairly staid, hotel restaurant that serves dishes like filet mignon and shrimp and grits. Soul Gastrolounge is a loungey, hipster place with couch seating and a dj, serving dishes like Rocky Mountain Oysters, Salmon-o-pita and Dirty South Nachos. I've never been to SR, and I love Soul, so if I were picking, I'd definitely go with Soul.

      I agree, if between the two go with Soul. Savannah Red is good but it would be a suggestion if you were downtown for 3 or 4 days and wanted to try several places out....not what I would consider a must-eat. Although Krispy Kreme bread pudding is pretty awesome.
