Going to be in Savannah, GA. the latter part of November. I hear the Pink House is a great place to eat, if you like scallops, which I do. Any other great places to eat, while there? Any sites to make sure to see while there? Is the cemetery worth a visit for photos?

Thanks.

Hey, thanks. I land on Friday around 1:00 ish and fly out on Sunday. Perhaps I can get in a late lunch on Friday? I assume it is in the historical district?

it's been a while....i lived near savannah about 15 yrs. ago, but it's not far from the historical district.

just thinking about how long it's been.....i'm not so sure any of those lil ole ladies could still be around. let me know if you find it, ok?

the charthouse restaurant on river street has good seafood. i'd imagine they have those down by you, too, though. (it's a small chain)

Just trawl along the riverfront, as there were a number of good seafood restaurants on it. Other than that, I absolutely loved the city...

you MUST go see the Pirate House....you dont have to eat there (its kinda pricey but the food I had there was GREAT)

http://www.thepirateshouse.com/

Quote:
Since 1753, The Pirate's House has been welcoming visitors to Savannah with a bounty of delicious food and drink and rousing good times. Situated a scant block from the Savannah River, The Pirate's House first opened as an inn for seafarers, and fast became a rendezvous for blood-thirsty pirates and sailors from the Seven Seas. Here seamen drank their grog and discoursed, sailor fashion, on their exotic high seas adventures from Singapore to Bombay and from London to Port Said.

The entire family will enjoy Savannah's most intriguing restaurant. At the Pirate's House, our most precious treasure is our food, acclaimed for over three decades. Our extensive menu includes dishes for all tastes and our varied selection of scandalous desserts is sure to delight. Like a tale of the high seas, The Pirate's House rambles in all directions. We operate 15 separate dining rooms each with a distinct charm all its own.

I had seen your previous thread and had responded to it, previously, also. You've given me some great ideas and my new camera gear should be arriving by this coming Tuesday, so I'm really stoked...

Thanks, again.

I doubt I'll do a ghost tour, but who knows. I'd rather eat a good meal at nite and see some of the city lites. I'll be flexible, tho. Rumor has it that it is going to be cold up there and cold weather makes me cranky, so I imagine the weather will dictate just how much time I spend outside. ;-)

I have a favor to ask of you while you are in Savannah. There is a gift shop on the river (I think one or two shops to the east of the Harley Davidson Botique (gag) Store). In the window is a cookie jar (which I have pictured in the Tilted Photography Forum under the title "Cookie Jars"). Can you get me a name and phone number of the store, please? I want to buy the cookie jar. I didn't see it until the Sunday I was leaving and the store was closed. Thanks.

Thanks. It's one of the shops next to the HD place. Think it was (as you are facing the HD shop) to the left a shop or two. If you can get me a name and a phone number, I'd appreciate it.

It was a nice place, but the town, well remember the Movie "Savannah Smiles"? Should be "Savannah Smells". Human excrement along the river from the homeless, sewage and the smell of boats. The riverfront stank just a bit.

Now, places to eat, let me tell you!!!

1. Lady and Her Sons. Go there. There will be a line, but it is so good. I ate the buffett and it was great. Make sure to eat their biscuts. Best I've ever had.

2. Pirate House was okay, but I've had better.

3. Breakfast... eat at the Cobblestone Cafe (in the alley by the Chart House) and also, eat at Huey's by the river. Huey's has an excellent seafood omellete (sic) and great sugar donuts, also.

I liked the Pirate House for the atmosphere.....I learned a long time ago that places like that rarely have food thats just fantastic...but walking thru all the dining rooms and looking at all the stuff was fun

Shouldnt be a problem to find the shop because I will most definately be in at the HD shop at least twice...once to see what I can find that I dont really need to buy and argue with myself for half an hour and talk my self out of it and then once to go back and get it hahahahaha

Im an HD junkie
