Guests may dine alfresco or in our dining room in the former location of a Savannah family-owned wholesale food supplier.

Along Coastal Georgia, the ebb and flow of the tides of the great Ogeechee remain constant day after day, as does the quality of food served at Love’s. From spicy alligator fingers to succulent prime rib, and everything delicious in between, a diner will not go lacking for choices. Our children’s menu is popular with the kids, as is the great green lawn by water’s edge. Common sights would be alligators swimming and sturgeon jumping. Albeit rare, there are times when they may catch a glimpse of the dolphins on their way out to the ocean. Our location is convenient to Historic Savannah and just 5 minutes from I-95 and yet you feel like you’ve gotten a nice break from the busy, beaten path of the rest of the world. Kind of makes you think they could break out the Mint Juleps any minute!

Here in the South, we take our shrimp seriously, and I personally think shrimp are the delicacies of the sea. Incredibly versatile, you can cook and eat them in a myriad of ways, from ceviche and casseroles to sushi and tacos. My family sometimes just boils them with water and salt, and we have a contest to see who can peel and eat them the fastest.

Talk about a room with a view! It doesn’t get more relaxing than kicking back at Tubby’s Tank House above River Street and watching the tankers cruise by — even when the Savannah heat is at its peak, outdoor diners always stay refreshed with Tubby’s ingenious mister system. This is always the place for fresh seafood: The catch of the day is served grilled, fried or blackened with plenty of sides, and the crab cakes and fish fingers have folks raving. Land lovers will find lots to take in, including filet mignon and chicken cordon bleu, and there are sandwiches galore for the lunchtime crowd. Save room for dessert — preferably a piece of pecan pie, baked fresh every day by Tubby himself in Savannah’s Candy Kitchen.

Kayak is a locally-owned casual cafe located in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District. We have a friendly staff and a great location and we are a great choice for lunch or dinner whether you are just strolling around the downtown scene shopping, meeting clients, or you just want to have some great food while you “people watch” from our outdoor tables. Kayak Kafé has a casual open dining room that bustles with locals during the day, then transforms into a great place to grab a bite at night.

Bobby Wells is a Georgia boy who knows his seafood. The Brunswick native scored an internship at Fiddler’s Crab House on River Street after college at Georgia Southern and now he runs the kitchen with affection. Affection for both the hungry patrons who pack the place and for the food he feeds them.
“We spend a lot of money to get the best seafood around,” he proclaims. “It’s as fresh as you can get.” Fiddler’s steamed seafood platter is a head-turning maritime celebration that is one of the restaurant’s signature dishes. Wells piles a tin platter high with piping hot steamed Georgia shrimp, crawfish, oysters, mussels and clams. Crowning the top of the feast are straight-from-Alaska snow crab legs. Plenty of butter and a few choice spices are all he needs to accentuate the flavors that just arrived fresh on the truck.

THERE IS FISH AND THERE IS SEAFOOD. THERE ARE THE SCORES OF FRIED WHITE SOMETHINGS, THE STICK CRABMEAT THAT NEVER ONCE SAW A SHELL, THE GRAYED-OUT TUNA AND THE SUPERMARKET SALMON THAT’S DYED PINK. THEN THERE IS THE OTHER SORT. THERE IS THE GROUPER SO FRESH THE MUSCLES SEEM TO REPLENISH THEMSELVES AFTER THEY ARE COOKED, THE BOLD MEATY FLAVOR OF STURGEON, EVEN THE SALTY SWEETNESS OF A LITTLE LOCAL OYSTER. IN SAVANNAH, THAT IS WHAT PEOPLE EXPECT.
Charlie Russo’s seafood on Abercorn Street traffics the latter category. Russo is a second-generation fishmonger who talks about Georgia fish almost like they were family. He can be found in the back of the shop, dressed in a purple rubber apron and a black University of Georgia hat, overseeing the deconstruction of loads of fish that were flapping on the deck of a boat just a few hours ago. Fish is in his blood, he says.
“It’s got to be in your blood, the fish business,” he says. “It’s a hard business.” Russo has an encyclopedic knowledge of the fish that run in the waters from Darien to Bluffton. He has many charts of fish species that line the walls of the store and his office. The greatest resource of coastal Georgia to him, however, is shrimp.
“The local shrimp we get in these waters, the greatest in the world – tastewise, the supply, the quality—we don’t fool with anything else that’s imported, no pond raised stuff,” he says. “The shrimp here is our biggest commodity.” The Russos are a fish family—Charlie’s father opened shop in 1946, and now even his grandson and great-grandson are working there. They aren’t the only ones. Savannah is filled with people who have a passion for fish. Here’s where the fish go next:
