Let’s start with the family!

The Pirates’ House


Bring the kids and eat like a Pirate at the World Famous Pirates House! First opened in 1753 as an inn for seafarers, it fast became a meeting point for pirates and sailors from the Seven Seas. Now your family can join the crew. Kids get pirates hats and their share of the booty (Dum Dums Lollipops)!


Spanky’s Pizza Galley & Saloon


You can’t get more family-friendly than chicken fingers and Spanky’s River Street is the Home of the Original Chicken Finger, where the finger-lickin’ all began! There are also Pizzas, Burgers, and other great Americana staples. You’re sure to know why Spanky’s was voted “Best Bar Food in Savannah!”


Lizzy’s Burger Bar & Grill


Great food & views on the river. Housed in an old 1800’s trade warehouse, Lizzy’s Burger Bar is fully equipped with the best burgers and drinks around to let you unwind and dig in. From fried pickles to taco twists, you’ll find plenty of fun and delicious bites to try.


Little Duck Diner


Dog Friendly!

Southern charm meets modern retro eatery. Little Duck Diner is a “vintage chic diner” reminiscent of dining cars and diners of the late ’20s and ’30s with a contemporary twist. Inspired by the diner’s “little ducklings,” their children, the diner embodies the youthfulness within all of us with the refinement and quirks of an era from which the “Diner” as we know it was born. There is an entire section of the menu dedicated to Grilled Cheese!


Funky Brunch


Dog Friendly!

Maybe it’s a cheat to put a brunch place on a lunch/dinner menu, but we’ll let it pass for now. Why? Because pancakes. Funky Brunch is not just a restaurant, but a place to hang out with the entire family! You can flip your own from at your table or order one of the other many delicious items off the menu.
