No visit to Savannah, Georgia, is complete without sampling some of the city's fine food. Travel tips to this Southern wonderland often include these seven places for food-loving travelers:

1. For romantic dining or a scrumptious meal, visitors and locals often rate Elizabeth on 37th as one of the top restaurants in Savannah. The atmosphere is as pleasing as the food in this restored 20th-century restored mansion.

Specialized dishes include Savannah-style preparations of spicy seafood or beef and pork. Impressive wines accompany the meal, which customers can end with delicious desserts, including Savannah cream cake with berry and custard sauce.

2. The Olde Pink House is a longtime favorite in Savannah’s Historic District. Flavorful Southern cuisine includes chicken, beef, pork, and fish selections as you dine under chandeliers and near fireplaces for old Southern charm.

The warm environment in the 18th-century Georgian mansion also inspires legend. As with many spots throughout Savannah, stories of ghosts lingering throughout the mansion persist.

3. Sophisticated yet simple is how many connoisseurs describe B. Tillman on Waters Avenue. The menu includes delicious salads, soups, and special sandwiches with a variety of breads for meals that fit the Southern experience.

Some views in the dining room peer into the old factory that was built there in 1924 when the restaurant had been a bakery for batches of cookies.

4. The Green Truck Pub in Thomas Square often wins “best gourmet burger” and “best veggie burger” prizes, and has been hailed as serving the best burgers in the state. Green Truck even makes its own ketchup. The popular restaurant may have lines at times, but the 30-minute wait is well worth it, according to reviewers.

5. If you want to treat your taste buds while away from the city on nearby Tybee Island, Wiley’s Championship BBQ has been a favorite of locals and now draws in tourists.

Moist beef and pork slices are served as meals and sandwiches in an intimate atmosphere. The friendly staff makes customers feel at home in this small restaurant.

6. The 5 Spot in Habersham Village is another prize-winning restaurant with country home cooking. The Reuben and Cuban sandwiches are among the specialties. The grilled salmon brings the taste of Savannah seafood to pleased customers. The 5 Spot is somewhat newer than many of the top restaurants, but is run by an experienced team with several other successful eateries.

7. Travel tips include after-dinner delights, meaning it’s often time for something wonderful for dessert. Chocolat by Adam Turoni on West Broughton Street has exclusive specialties for peanut butter cups and peanut butter chocolate bars. All chocolate delicacies are made in-house for a growing number of customers.
