If you get the chance to visit Savannah, Georgia, do it. This city is full of history, beautiful and yummy. Yep, I said yummy. My main goal when visiting Savannah was to eat. Savannah is also surprisingly fun with teenagers. We could have done a lot more eating our way around the city, but I chose these 5 places to eat in Savannah that are great for families.
Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room
I cannot say enough good things about this place. In fact, I wrote a whole blog post about Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room here. The establishment is traditional family style southern hospitality with a wide selection of food, that every kid should be able to find something yummy to eat. If you chose only one of the places to eat in Savannah, make this the one!
Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room is located at 107 W. Jones St.
The Pirate House
Seriously, what kid doesn’t want to eat in a place that once was home to many pirates. Get your swashbuckling good time ready. Again, this location offers a lunch buffet, so you can get the most bang for your buck. Seating is through many different rooms. Be sure to look around for signs of pirates (or ghosts.) Ask your server for any pirate stories as well. And don’t forget to top it off with a visit to the gift shop upstairs.
The Pirate House is located at 20 E Broad St.
Leopold’s Ice Cream
Leopold’s Ice Cream is another one of those Savannah traditions that has been in town since 1919. In addition to partnering with the Girl Scouts (see the Samoa Sundae above) it’s an old-fashioned soda fountain style ice cream parlor, filled with movie memorabilia.
Leopold’s is located at 212 E. Broughton St.
Green Fire Pizza
This was on our list of recommendations, but we ran out of time. While we didn’t get time to eat here, but here’s what 365 Atlanta Traveler Said
Order inside (great pizzas from organic ingredients, including gluten-free, plus salads) then find a table outside and relax. It’s in a renovated gas station, which makes it fun. You can also get your pizza to go if you want to take it to one of 22 squares in he district and enjoy a picnic.
Green Fire Pizza is located at 236 Drayton St.

Savannah’s Candy Kitchen
Yes, of course, I’m recommending a candy store! We are talking places to eat in Savannah for kids, right? Savannah’s Candy Kitchen is the perfect place to try out traditional Southern candy such as pralines. Side note: Do you say prAlines or prAWlines? I guess it’s how southern you are. Stop in and as for a sample and how to properly pronounce it!
Savannah’s Candy Kitchen is located at 225 East River Street and 318 West St. Julian Street. Of course, you can always order online too.
