After the holidays is usually a slower time for retail shops and restaurants. Most people would rather stay home after the craziness of the holidays. In order for restaurants to bring in business during the winter months, many cities across the country offer restaurant weeks where restaurant goes can get a chance to try out food at “that” restaurant that you always wanted to try, but didn’t think that you could afford. The Savannah area has a wide range of restaurants from casual to five-star and is now becoming well-known on the culinary circuit. At participating restaurants during Restaurant Week, you can get a chance to taste some of the great food that Savannah is known for!
Tybee Island Restaurant Week
Tybee Island Restaurant Week runs January 16th to January 25th. This is a great week to try the diverse tastes of Tybee Island. During the nine day event, restaurant goes can choose from a prix fixe (fixed price) three course dinner costing either $25 or $30. The courses include appetizers, entrees, and desserts which are pre-determined by the chefs to highlight their specialties. Beverages, tax and gratuity are not included in the prix fixe rate. The regular menus are also being offered during the special event as well. While reservations are not required at many of Tybee Island’s restaurants, it would be recommended to make a reservation during the special week especially if you are part of a large group. You can see a list of restaurants participating in this year’s Tybee Island Restaurant Week at the website.
