My friend and I will be stopping in Savannah on our way to Florida. Neither of us have ever been there and we won't be staying long - a few hours or so. We wanted to try Paula Deen's restaurant, but I'm well aware that the wait may be ridiculously long.

Can anyone point us in the direction of a good restaurant? Southern comfort food is what we're looking for. Nothing pretentious or fancy because we'll be in a car for several hours beforehand, so we don't want to stick out like a couple of sore thumbs. Thus far, I have Clary's Cafe and Johnny Harris BBQ as two back ups incase the Paula Deen restaurant doesn't pan out.

Thanks!

We won't be there for lunch. I know, that was my second choice. What about the Olde Pink Room? Anyone know anything about the restaurants I mentioned or have any other suggestions?

The Pink House is pricey. I personally like Belford's in City Market over Lady and Sons.

Belford's

Really great crab cakes.

Sweet Potatoes In Midtown is one of my favorites. Corner of Waters and Eisenhower.

Just go to Paula's and get it out of your system. Lately it hasn't been that busy due to the heat of summer and the on-going recession.

And if it's too busy, there are at least a dozen good restaurants within a few blocks of there. I just read the reviews for Belfords, and it sounds like it might be a good second choice. It's just a few block away, so you can safely and easily walk there.

Sweet Potatoes is way the heck out on the southside = long drive through urban sprawl.

Urban Sprawl - LOL. That's a good one. A 10 minute drive at most down Truman.

It's still urban sprawl, regardless of how you get there.

Just park downtown and walk around; you will find plenty of great restaurants.
