Savanna and Beaufort bound for a few days in August

Headed to Savanna for a couple days then on to Beaufort. Will probably be looking for lunch along 77 in Columbia then on into Savanna. Top priority in Savanna and Beaufort is seafood. Good fresh seafood. In fact we will be camping on Hunting Island so fresh caught and cooked in camp is an option also. It has been many years since I have been down that way. All suggestions are welcome. 
 
Should have mentioned will be staying in the Historic District in Savanna and Hunting Island near Beaufort

    Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House is the best place I have eaten in Savannah, check the website since they are only open a few hours at lunch.  Beaufort is better for seafood.

    NOOOHH!!!!! 
    don't do it- 
    Overpriced tourist trap serving very mediocre food
    (when we went there, none of the patrons were local)
    I went once for breakfast and it was fine
    Lunch was dismal.....

    I agree with WJ..............the place is really terrible...................people at the table grabbing or all this food which  I would describe as a low priced cafeteria type of food.  Do not waste your time standing in line for this "grab and chew" place.

    Don't get me wrong- this is an historical restaurant and if you want to go from that perspective then fine, but if you have high expectations for the food, you will be sorely disappointed (Unfortunately I never had the opportunity to visit when Ms Wilkes was alive)

    I would suggest A. J.'s Dockside on Tybee Island. I loved the food and the view.



    I loved the Caesar Salad.


    Great fried shrimp and fries.


    Here is my report from my trip last April which included three days in Savannah.

    A couple of years ago we had very good meals at Old Pink House and Vic's on the River in Savannah.
     
    In Beaufort last October we ate Old Bull Tavern and Saltus River Grill for dinner and Plums for lunch.  All were very good.

    The Olde Pink House
    Belford's
    Clary's
    Huey's
    The Cotton Exchange
    And save room for Leopold's for ice cream

    A favorite of mine in the downtown area is Garibaldi Café. The crispy scored flounder is amazing.

    And a great place to grab a beer or cocktail with a cool view. Rocks on the Roof at Bohemian Hotel overlooks the river.

    After a visit in July, I am happy to recommend Wiley's Championship BBQ outside Savannah on the way to Tybee.  Good grief, that is some completely amazing pulled pork and stew, some of the best we've found anywhere.

    I also recommend Wiley's after my trip in April. It wasn't the favorite of my trip but it was my favorite in Savannah.

    You've never steered me wrong- Wiley's looks like a winner- The reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor support that. 
    Perhaps if we do Glee Club in Jacksonville next February, I'll have the opportunity to check it out.

    Hilton Head: Lunch at Roast Fish and Cornbread. Gullah/Low country cuisine. Sit outside on painted benches under big shade tree.
    Savannah: May not be "Road Food" but...Lunch at SoHo Cafe. Cute cafe/art gallery w/skylights cut into what looks like an old barn w/eclectic furnishings. Excellent homemade soups, salads, sandwiches. Dinner at Alligator Soul (in a cellar off Telfair Square). Creative, high-end food w/service to match, great bar too. Think espresso dusted ostrich, ice cracked by hand for milt juleps. Liked pistachio ice cream at Leopold's. MUST eat LOCAL WILD SHRIMP in this area. 
    Beaufort: Griffon Market. Authentic Piedmont Italian. Not getting any love from the locals who prefer southern food, but we had two great meals several months apart.
