Outdoor Dining in Savannah

NATSA Conference

Outdoor Dining in Savannah

With our upcoming 2022 conference in Savannah, we thought we would offer up a few great outdoor dining ideas.

Outdoor dining and drinking in Savannah are big reasons why so many visitors continue to come back! When the day is far too beautiful to be spent indoors, opt for any one of these restaurants for outdoor drinking and dining in Savannah!

Starland Yard

Idle the hours away at this urban hangout in Savannah’s eclectic Starland District. Constructed of repurposed shipping containers, Starland Yard was first conceptualized as a food truck park. With indoor, outdoor and covered seating, a full bar, a pizza eatery and rotating food trucks, it’s an eating and drinking mecca. Bring your dog and enjoy live music  while playing cornhole or horseshoes.


The Collins Quarter at Forsyth Park

Forsyth Park provides the perfect setting for outdoor seating at this Collins Quarter location. A new addition to a group of locally-owned restaurants, diners can eat or drink indoors or outdoors at the Collins Quarter at Forsyth Park. Grab a coffee from their to-go window or join them on the lawn for live music on Sunday afternoons.



Vic’s on the River

Vic’s on the River has been a Savannah favorite since opening its doors in 2006. This popular River Street restaurant offers classic Southern cuisine, beautiful views, live music, and an outdoor dining area for guests. Their coffee bar features a variety of options as well as the opportunity to “booze it up,” and their menu is a mix of classic dishes and fresh seafood. {Note from Margie:  I had lunch here in May and it was very good!}


Tubby’s Seafood River Street

If you came to Savannah in search of seafood straight from the ocean, then you need to try Tubby’s Seafood on River Street. Every kind of fish dish possible seems to be on their menu. Plus, they have an open-air bar where diners can take in views of River Street.



Treylor Park

Although guests can opt for the standard indoor seating, it’s worth the wait if you can snag a seat outdoors in Treylor Park’s beer garden. This funky restaurant’s motto is “quality over quantity”, includes their specialty cocktails, beers, and creative menu items.



Cha Bella Grill

Cha Bella Grill is the epitome of the farm-to-table concept. Their menu focuses on the seasonal and organic, so the options change quite often (so if you’re a repeat customer, you’ll probably end up with enough options to never eat the same thing twice!). Their outdoor seating features playful swings and elegant drapery for a show-stopping outdoor dining experience.



Belford’s Savannah Seafood and Steaks

If you’re looking for an upscale seafood experience, check out Belford’s Savannah Seafood & Steaks. Their menu is the ultimate combination of surf and turf, and their outdoor seating area overlooks Savannah’s famous City Market.




When two of Savannah’s award-winning restaurants put their heads together, a beautiful combination known as Zunzibar was born. Owner Chris Smith of Zunzi’s and owners Trey Wilder and Rick Kunzi of the Treylor Park trio created the ultimate dining concept. The delicious menu consists of the South African inspired cuisine of Zunzi’s and the ultimate beach party-themed bar of Treylor Park. You won’t want to miss this laid back outdoor party space. Froze’ anyone?



At Hitch, you’ll love the tasty spin on American classics paired with inspired cocktails and craft beer. This energetic space is a part of the Treylor Park franchise with a unique indoor and outdoor dining space, perfect for any day of the week. Dine on the infamous Treylor Park Nachos Grande with a cold beer as you people watch from your outdoor table, conveniently located in the heart of downtown. The vibe is just different here.


Paris Market

Who knew that Savannah was an expert on cuisine française? The Paris Market is a delightful Parisian inspired boutique on buzzing Broughton Street with a unique collection of home décor, art prints, perfumes, jewelry, candles, and more. They also offer fantastic menu items at their Paris Market Café. Espressos, seasonal drinks, tea, pastries, quiches, wine and champagne are utterly enjoyable at one of their outdoor tables. You’ll swear you’re dining outdoors in Paris.


We cannot wait to see you all in Savannah at the NATSA conference and at one of these great outdoor restaurants!
