Renowned Restaurants & Iconic Southern-Style Cuisine
Savannah features a food scene unlike any other destination, and when you bring your meeting to this savory city, your attendees get to reap the benefits of dining at distinctive restaurants.
Enjoy some of the South’s finest steak and seafood fare at historic Belford’s, or savor world-class coastal cuisine at 700 Drayton Restaurant in the luxurious Mansion on Forsyth Park—both are located in the Historic Landmark District and within walking distance of convention group hotels.
Situated in downtown Savannah, The Collins Quarter at Forsyth has established itself as a must-stop for a weekend brunch or a quick weekday lunch and features a scenic view of Forsyth Park’s natural beauty.
Located in the Starland District, groups can enjoy chic Asian fusion food at The Vault Kitchen and Market—a renovated historic bank building turned industrially modern eatery. Another dining experience option offered in the area is Starland Yard, which has a variety of rotating food trucks every week and is home to the Yard Bar for beer, wine cocktails and frozen drinks. Did we mention there are special events featuring local music, art and culture weekly?
Groups can grab lunch or dinner at Madame Butterfly, a mouth-watering Korean steak house with menu options that are so incredible you'll want to order a little bit of everything.

Plan Food + Pub Tours for a Taste of Savannah

Go behind the scenes with your group and see Savannah’s local foodies at work. Savannah Bee Company, Salt Table and Byrd Cookie Company are just a few of the establishments where you can get both a tour and a taste.
Immerse your group in the culinary culture and history of the hostess city with Revelry Tours, the first and only premium cocktail experience in Savannah that features the city's most exclusive bars, pubs and restaurants.
Planning a team activity in Savannah is as easy as riding a bike—especially on a double-sided, 15-person bicycle with a built-in bar that lets groups pedal (and sip) their way through the Historic District. Savannah Slow Ride runs a fleet of eight “crawlers,” which can be combined to accommodate groups of up to 117 people. Customize your tour with stops at a variety of bars, restaurants and historic landmarks.
See and sip on spirits with one of Savannah’s many haunted pub crawls. In the after-dark hours, companies like Ghost City Tours will have expert guides to take groups to the city’s most haunted bars—including classic watering holes like The Olde Pink House, Moon River Brewing Company and more.
