A Savannah landmark, this 1753 house is steeped in history, including scary tales of trap doors and secret passages leading down to the waterfront that were used to take inebriated patrons out to waiting boats (they'd wake up at sea and be given the choice between working on the boat or swimming several miles back to shore). Its popularity with tour groups has given it a reputation as a tourist trap, but the food is pretty good, with plenty of kid-pleasing choices. The
lunch buffet has all the Southern standards, but the food is better on the à la carte menu. The baby back ribs and the honey pecan chicken are highlights. There's no buffet for dinner, but the dessert menu is worth sticking around for.
