The last time we were through Savannah, I tried to get a reservation at The Grey. It was a hot ticket then and remains so.
We recently spent a few days on Skidaway Island near Savannah, Georgia where, among other things, Melanie found someone to cut her hair and we enjoyed walking around downtown Savannah checking out the historic parks too.
After her hair cut later in the day, I mentioned to Melanie I couldn't get us a reservation at The Grey, but if we arrived shortly after they opened at 5:00 p,m., we might be able to walk in since they had a limited number of spots in their bar available for walk-ins.
Arriving at around 5:15 we indeed were able to get a table in the great bar area in the front of the restaurant. They serve a limited menu in the bar, but we came away quite satisfied with what we ordered. Note, the bar menu portions are more like tapas or small plates.
Next time pass we pass through Savannah I'll try to anticipate our arrival and make a reservation for the dining room.
