Where to Eat in Savannah’s Moon River District
In This Article
Savannah’s Moon River District celebrates the culture and heritage of the Low country. Although it’s known for its state parks and visitors sites, this district is also home to spots that serve food you won’t want to miss!
Like most of the restaurants in the Moon River District, the water plays an important role in The Wyld Dock Bar’s menu. Relying heavily on all that Savannah’s coast has to offer, their menu changes seasonally. What won’t change is the dedication to turning seafood into something mouthwatering (plus the option of an indulgent slice of dessert or frothy specialty drink).
Fiore Italian Bar and Grill
Fiore Italian Bar and Grill has a lunch menu that takes classics like burgers and infuses them with the flavors of Italian cuisine; however, it’s their dinner menu that really catches the eye (and stomach). Simply the names of their dishes can make the mouth water: “Portobello Stuffed with Spinach, “Artichoke and Grape Tomato” or “Spaghetti Marinara with Fiore Stuffed Meatballs” or “Grilled 12-oz Black and Bleu N.Y. Strip Steak”. They even have a kid’s menu for the little guys.
Today, this destination is an interesting combination of art, shopping, food and community. Much like the unique district in which it resides, Cohen’s Retreat is definitely worth visiting. Once you’ve wandered the grounds (or perhaps you’re staying in one of the rental cottages), enjoy a meal crafted by an award-winning culinary team, one that prides itself on local and seasonal dishes.
Great Harvest Bread Co.
There’s something magical about the warm aroma of freshly baked bread. When you stop by Great Harvest, you’ll be greeted by a sampling station! You’ll also find an assortment of breads as well as more decadent options, like Berry Cream Cheese Scones or a traditional chocolate chip cookie. They also offer a handful of sandwiches (built on their homemade breads), soups and salads.
Pearl’s Saltwater Grille
For a meal with a view, try Pearl’s Saltwater Grille. As their name suggests, this restaurant is a seafood lover’s dream come true. Feast on truly fresh seafood, juicy steaks and leafy salads, while enjoying a gorgeous view of the water when you dine at Pearl’s.
It’s no surprise that Savannah is a pet-friendly city, but finding a restaurant that’s welcoming to our furry friends is a little trickier. In that respect, Castaways is a hidden gem for hungry people who are taking their pets on a tour of the Moon River District. Their menu is mostly seafood, done in a variety of different ways (grilled, fried and fresh) and traditional American dishes with a coastal twist (such as pasta or tacos with a little something from the sea).
Specializing in “casual coastal cuisine,” Driftaway Café invites guests into a relaxed atmosphere with an impressively fresh and local menu. Their seafood is caught daily, their prime rib is slow-cooked to perfection and their homemade desserts are worth drooling over. Driftaway Café has a menu that spans pages and has a little something for everyone, even the pickiest of eaters.
