Savannah Foodie Tour and Pub Crawl

We visited Savannah for a short visit for our 10th anniversary and thought a food tour would be a great way to see the city and sample some of the local cuisine! We were inspired to book one because we follow a number of YouTube travel vloggers, The Endless Adventure, Kara and Nate, Flying the Nest, WAY AWAY and Delightful Travellers. These travel vloggers love sharing their foodie experiences and Jackie’s Eats and Treats wanted to deliver the same experience to you 👍

We booked, Savannah Foodie Tour and Pub Crawl, which was a suggested experience by Airbnb after booking our accommodations. Our guide Nick was great and kept us entertained with stories of Savannah’s history.

David and I arrived at the first bar, Tondee’s Tavern, to escape the heat because boy was it HOT in Savannah and we grabbed some local beers and toasted 🍻 our anniversary ❤️

The tour kicked off with our guide, Nick telling us about Savannah’s early history and some Shrimp and Grits, one of Savannah’s local dishes ❤

Tondee’s Tavern’s shrimp were poached in bacon, wine and garlic and they were delicious 😋. This dish has inspired future shrimp and grits in my own kitchen!

Our group of ~12 then walked to The Bayou Cafe and heard about the underground tunnels that ran below Bay Street.

Those red bricks are former tunnels

Stop #2 featured fried blue crab claws and The Bayou Cafe’s famous hot sauce.

This dish was the star for me! The hot sauce had a delicious vinegar kick and blue crab is very local for Savannah.

Tandem Coffee and Spirits at the East Bay Inn was Stop #3. Our guide, Nick, told us about Charlie and Room 325. Charlie, was a former worker that is said to haunt the inn. He reportedly fell to his death from a third story room.

From the East Bay Inn, we strolled through 2 of Savannah’s squares, Reynolds and Johnson Square, and heard more about Savannah’s history. The squares of Savannah were beautiful with their large oak trees and hanging moss and each had some history.

From Reynolds Square, we went back to West Bay Street for spot #4, P.S. Tavern, for BBQ.

Pulled pork slider and another Southbound beer because BBQ and beer are the perfect pair. By the way, did you know you could walk around Savannah’s downtown with an adult beverage 🍻

From West Bay Street, we walked up to Barnard Street/Below Zero for Fried Oreos.

Below Zero’s fried oreos weren’t too sweet and I actually really enjoyed them. They also serve Thai inspired ice cream rolls and bubble tea!

Our 6th and final stop was Dub’s Public House on River Street. Here we had two pub favorites from Jackie’s Eats and Treats for Pimento Cheese and Beer Cheese with pita chip and pretzel dippers.

The addition of bacon was delicious and Jackie’s Eats and Treats will feature that when I make next batch of Pimento Cheese.

This tour was fabolous and great way to visit locally ran establishments. Nick, our guide, gets 👍👍 for a fun afternoon, cheers!
