The Olde Pink House is a Savannah institution and a must-visit spot if you’re in the area. The restaurant building itself is, as the name suggests, an old pink house that was originally built in the 1700s right off of Reynolds Square in the center of what is now the historic district. It has several dining rooms, grandiose chandeliers, and period artwork and decor, making it a cool, beautiful place to enjoy a good Southern meal. I’ve also heard dining in their downstairs “vault” wine cellar is a unique experience but haven’t had the chance to do so yet. The restaurant’s charm and delicious Southern food make it popular among tourists, but I wouldn’t call it a tourist trap by any means.

What To Order

Every time I go I get the BLT Salad, although calling it a “salad” may be a bit of a stretch. It is presented almost like a napoleon, with layers of fried green tomatoes, thick cut bacon, and lettuce, all drizzled with a ranch dressing. Everything is prepared to perfection: crispy and tangy fried green tomatoes, tender thick cut bacon, fresh greens, and creamy and peppery dressing. The fried chicken also ranks up there as some of the best I’ve had.
