I think I am going to have to check out Mrs. Wilkes. I went downtown and found the Pink House. I didn't go in though. I was just curious where it was. I want to wait for my hubby to go there. Thank you both so much for the information!

Good. Savannah has quite a few wonderful restaurants. It's hard to make a bad decision. The Lady and Son is still good, but not good enough to make me wait in line, unless I have company from out of town. LOL

Many years ago we ate at a restaurant on the water, somewhere around Savannah Beach, I think. They had shrimp stuffed with...sausage! Delicious! Can someone tell me the name of the restaurant and if it's still open? Many thanks.

There are so many new places that I can't keep up with them when I go home for a visit. Here are a few of my old favorites:

The Pink House is wonderful. I like the bar downstairs. It usually has music, is very cozy, and you can still order from the whole menu. Very good crabcakes. I've never had anything that wasn't fabulous.

Garibaldis is great. Very continental/Southern fusion. The crispy scored flounder is out of this world.

Constantinos is very nice Italian.

They used to have a place called the bistro. Owned by the Garibaldis crew. Not sure if it is still open, by very good.

Also, look up Skylars. Great combo of southern with an asian-fusion twist. Very good crabcakes. Very good sesame chicken.

Sapphire Grill: Upscale continental

Il Pisticcio: spelling is not correct. Is on broughton. First date with my husband. Good Italian.

Pizza: Vinni Van Go Gos. New York style pizza. Really.

Beach: not sure of the place Southlander is referring to. We used to go to the North Beach Grill quite a bit. Loved it.

Kayak cafe: fun, great for lunch

The Tea Room on Broughton: my favorite place for lunch. The afternoon tea is out of this world and VERY filling.

There are tons and tons of restaurants in Savh. Plenty of Italian, Sushi, and Southern upscale and down home. We used to go to the Lady and Sons almost every Sunday, and it is great (the cheese biscuits are really to die for), BUT, I would NEVER wait that long to get in. It's not THAT great, and there are so many other choices that are just as wonderful. It you are going for great food, rather than a tourist experience, I would skip the line and head elsewhere. If the "experience" is important to you, ask for an iced tea while you wait. Good luck and have fun.

Wink That's pretty much how I feel...

I like Paula but she is now 'overexposed'. LOL--Many great Southern cooks in my family and they prepare similar food. And we are all working on 'Low Carb'/Reduced Fat plans.

But --Oh--the memories...



A couple of other places that I found:

--Crystal Beer Parlor--good burgers
--Elizabeth's on 47th? --desserts
--and about 20 years ago--somewhere on Wilmington Island --down a dirt road was a rustic seafood place--newspapers on the tables and the boiled/steamed fresh seafood was great--have no idea of the name or if this place is still around

Desposito's is the place near Wilmington Island, more than likely. It's on a smaller island called Isle of Armstrong, I believe. Go through the town of Thunderbolt, cross the bridge, take the first left and head for the boat ramp. You'll see it just before you get there.

The place on Tybee might be AJ's Seafood. It's one of my all-time favorite restaurants. It's located on the Back River. You often have to wait to get in there too, especially just before sunset.

ellie,

You were wrong, just wrong, to share the name and location of Despositos. It's supposed to be a locals' secret.

I agree, if you want basic, really fresh seafood in the most low-key location possible, Despositos is the the place to go. Just don't tell everyone.

I'm not worried. All the criminals in Savannah are doing a fine job keeping the riff raff away. Besides, no one believes anything I say about Savannah despite the fact I'm a native.

And the little bump of business they get from this probably won't keep us from getting a table.
