The Ford Plantation is just outside of Savannah’s local dining scene. Many residents enjoy world class meals at ‘one of America's finest private club communities’. Seasonal events highlight the culture of the community with Low Country oyster roasts and barbecues. Enjoy fresh roasted oysters at the vintage Oyster House, or head into historic downtown Savannah to browse through Victorian style neighborhoods.

From a truly authentic experience to the friendliest of service, Mrs Wilkes’ Dining Room represents Southern dining at its finest. Visitors and residents alike line the streets of Historic Downtown for a chance to taste the homemade crispy fried chicken.

Another gem in the heart of Savannah’s dining scene is The Pirate’s House, established in 1753. This one-of-a-kind restaurant is packed with as much history as it is good food! Ask for a pre-dinner tour and discover the rich history that ties Billy Bones and Captain Flint to the world famous pirate house. Sit down for an equally exciting meal of some of the best roasted oysters from Savannah waters. The Pirate’s House dessert selection is sure to top off one of the best meals in Georgia!

The great search for where to retire in Georgia begins with a memorable dining experience.

Residents of Savannah neighborhoods know best when it comes to the local hotspots. The Landings on Savannah’s Skidaway Island serves gourmet specials at each of its four spectacular clubhouses. An evening outside of the master planned community begins with a perfect martini at The Mansion on Forsyth Park.
