11 Unique Bars and Restaurants to Visit in Savannah, GA

If there’s one thing Savannah is known for, it’s food… and being one of the oldest cities in the country. But Savannah wouldn’t be the cultural hub we know it as today without its unique restaurants and bars, which keep people coming back time and again. Here are 11 one-of-a-kind Savannah bars and restaurants you should check out!

El-Rocko Lounge

This gold-clad bar serves you more than barrel-aged cocktails and draught beers. El-Rocko Lounge is a hub for live music, trivia nights, and pachinko. Take yourself to Whitaker Street to enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience with a vinyl jukebox as your soundtrack.

The Crab Shack

Located in Savannah’s sister city, Tybee Island, The Crab Shack brings you the seafood goodness the Georgia coast is known for. Surprisingly, The Crab Shack originally started as a fishing camp until an Atlanta couple turned it into the iconic restaurant it is today. The Shack is perfect for drinking a cold beer and enjoying the beautiful Savannah waterfront.


Boy, does this place have some stories to tell. The Artillery has been many things through the years, originally starting as an armory as the name implies. If you’re looking for an upscale bar full of opulent decor and champagne, the Artillery is for you.


If you know the popular local South African-inspired restaurant, Zunzi's, then you already know a little bit about Zunzibar. Next to Perry Lane Hotel and across from McDonough's Restaurant and Lounge on Drayton Street, resides Zunzibar, a fun and vibrant outdoor and indoor bar. With an array of drinks and interesting cocktails. You'll definitely have to stop by at your next bar hop.

Treylor Park

Found in multiple locations in Savannah, Treylor Park is along E Bay Street, West Bay Street, and Drayton Street.

But don’t just come for the drinks—Treylor Park also has a variety of sandwiches, tacos, and more!

Two Tides Brewing CO.

Located in a quaint coastal town, Two Tides Brewing Co. is a haven for beer lovers seeking a taste of seaside living. Founded by a group of dedicated enthusiasts, this brewery crafts a diverse array of flavorful beers, each inspired by the ebb and flow of the tides.
