Good Eats

Y'all know we had good food at the Lady and Son's... but that is not the only good eats in Savannah.
One of our favorite places is the Chart House... I know- A Chain Restaurant! This is not on the scale of a Red Lobster or Captain D's- a little more up scale. It is a great location on Bay Street, right on the water, in one of the city's oldest buildings.On a pretty evening you can sit on the patio and enjoy wonderful seafood. It is fun to watch the boats go by and overlook the excitement below.

This wasn't a pretty evening... but the food was great!
We sat inside, in a cozy dining room. The company was exceptional, with our Slow Travel friends and a long lost cousin.



The next day we wandered around town and took our chances on a little cafe on Bay Street~ B. Matthews.
I say 'took our chances' because the building looked like it is one hurricane away from falling in. Like most of Savannah- that is a part of the charm!


The food was great. I had a pecan crusted chicken salad. Bill had a sandwich... it disappeared before I could get the picture! Sweet tea for everyone.



As we wandered around the river walk, I felt right at home...
Check out this brick!


It's a small world y'all,
Sandi

The brick is a cool find! I hope that all is well with you. Going to stroll around a bit as I haven't been here in a while!

I'm going to add you to my Alabama Bloggers blogroll. If you know of some other Bama Girls or guys blogging (clean stuff - my kid reads), let me know! Thanks Miss Sandi!

Some of the best places we've dined have looked like they were about to fall in!

Wow...delicious looking meals! Wonder if there is a Charter House in this neck of the woods.

We try to eat outdoors whenever possible! Whether at home or out somewhere.

Hi Sandi - I recently ate at the bar at the Chart House in Newport Beach, California. I was pleasantly surprised. Not only is it a chain but it has been around a while. Wow. They have reinvented themselves. I would definitely go back to another location. We had fabulous seafood appetizers and interesting wines too.

Joan~ Now you know where to find some good eats
Tonja~ We know good food, don't we?
Lori Lynn~ I am glad to hear that. Thanks for stopping in.

Lovely photos Sandi! It looks like you having a wonderful vacation.

Sally said...

Sandi - I can't read what's on that brick...sorry. I've never heard of Chart House restaurants, so for me it'd be an adventure. Glad you're having fun.

Kristen said...

Oh I'm loving this! We are going to Savannah in the early Fall with some other couples that we vacation with every year. I'll have to remember all your great tips!
