“Davis Produce is hard to miss on the side of Highway 80 right before the Tybee Causeway and it’s worth a stop. The best local produce and pickle selection around, they also have the best damn boiled peanuts in Savannah! No day on the water is complete without them. ”

“GF Menu Options* Somewhere you can relax and listen to Live music, while enjoying a cold brew and the warm Island breeze. These guys often have live music but also do Trivia, etc, depending on the night! Their personal pan pizzas are available in gluten free and are DELICIOUS. My favorite menu hack: Rockin' Roast Beef with Romaine Wrap instead of Bun! ”

“Current is an EXCELLENT dinner location. Good for larger groups, perfect for a romantic evening. The risotto is to die for. Excellent for any kind of celebration as well, and I love their wine list.”

“Biggest deck around. Top notch spot for a sunny lunch date, not much inside seating- have an outside stage or two also that will have music a lot throughout season, EXCELLENT football/sports spot- probably my favorite on the island. Health conscious will have to menu-hack here, as most of their stuff is fried. One or two options that are not however, so don't avoid it unless you have to! :) ”

“*#1 LATE NIGHT FOODIE SPOT* Crow Bar is a great poppin' little dive on the Island, fun to get accustomed to during the day but definitely a hoppin' joint in the evening/late night. Typically open until 2/3, and have pool tables, shuffleboard, darts, etc. as well as cranked up music. BONUS: Excellent late night eats! Kitchen open until 1/2 most nights!”
