6 Dining Experiences Found Only in Savannah Back to Top

Leopold’s Tutti Frutti Ice Cream

A sweet mixture consisting of fruit, nuts and rum, Tutti Frutti ice cream was first created at Leopold’s Ice Cream. This flavor has been an inspiring staple in Savannah, as Macon, Ga.-native Little Richard even wrote his wildly popular 1955 hit about it!

Lowcountry Boil at The Crab Shack

When you’re on Georgia’s coast, a Lowcountry boil is a must-eat, and The Crab Shack does it best. Trays are piled high with steamed crab legs, peel ‘n’ eat shrimp, crawfish, sausage, potatoes and corn, guaranteeing that visitors will leave with their fill of seafood.

Mrs. Wilkes’ Fried Chicken

Served family-style to a line of people who wait patiently around the block each weekday, Mrs. Wilkes’ fried chicken is not to be missed. The chicken is complemented by dozens of other Southern dishes that are passed around the table.

Jen’s and Friends Martinis

Hundreds of gourmet martinis are shaken up at this martini dive bar on Johnson Square. From the birthday cake martini that has a piece of cake on the rim to other candy and dessert-themed choices, you can’t go wrong with a sweet drink to start or end a big night out.


Don’t walk down River Street or through City Market without stopping at a candy shop for a free taste of praline. For sale by the pound, this Savannah staple is loaded with pecans and makes a great take-home treat.

Conquistador at Zunzi’s

This iconic chicken sandwich has been featured on many food shows over the years. The secret ingredient is its special sauce!
