The sign hangs beneath mossy oaks, so you'll have to look for the line that forms during the breakfast and lunchtime hours at this restaurant. This no-nonsense eating-house has been a Savannah favorite for over six decades, serving up down home Southern treats in the basement of a brick building that dates to 1870. The seasonal menu features a rotating plethora of traditional delights, including Southern fried chicken, okra gumbo, buttery cornbread and collard greens. You won't find a bigger lunch plate in town. Family style dining, and cash only.
Music and food are an awesome combination, especially if the options include jazz and tapas. Apart from aforementioned tapas, there are also soups, salads, cheeses, chicken wings, seafood delights, beef satays, hummus, lamb chops and crab cakes on offer. You can combine these with flavored, classic and dessert martinis, champagne, whites, red and port wines, domestic and imported beer, and house specialties.

Sample regional specialties like Crab soup, Hog hammers, Wild Georgia shrimp and Prohibition shrimp po'boys. Don't forget to save room for dessert; their adaptation of the classic Southern confection, the Deep fried Moonpie, is out of this world.
