Good Eats in Georgia
I apologize for the blurred images. This happened while importing this post from an old blog site I had. The content is still good.
Recently I went on a trip to Savannah, GA with my mom, brother and his wife. We had a fantastic time. The restaurants that we ate at were wonderful! (Some of our meals were at the hotel or at fast food places, which I won’t mention here.)
Our first stop was Mamm’as and Pappa’s in Brunswick, GA. You can really tell you’re in the South when you hear the Georgia accents and your waitress hugs you! She was great! Mamma’s and Pappa’s has great Southern home cooking. They have some menu items that are all-you-can-eat.
Our Savannah restaurants we picked out by checking the Frommer’s website: http://www.frommers.com/destinations/savannah/31_inddin.html. We were able to go to two of the three we chose. The one we hadn’t been able to get to was because they weren’t open on Saturday’s – the day we planned to go there. BUT! I’ve got to mention it here, because I think we really missed out on something special. EVERYONE we talked to said it was great! It’s Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room. They say it’s a shared meal. You sit at large tables together and pass around dishes of great Southern fare. Here’s a link to it: http://www.frommers.com/destinations/savannah/D35848.html.
We had lunch a Huey’s, which is located right on the river in the old cotton district. They serve all meals on white table clothes. To our enjoyment, it was during their jazz festival, so we had great jazz music to enjoy during our meal. I had the Half Muffuletta with red beans & rice. Yum!
Here are a couple sites you can check out: http://www.frommers.com/destinations/savannah/D35834.html, http://savannahmenu.com/hueys.
Unfortunately we were unable to eat here, so I can’t comment on the food. But the atmosphere was excellent. It was Good Friday and the only fish they had were shellfish. Now, I was fine with that, but the rest in my party wasn’t.
