Some of our readers are new to the area and looking for new construction in the Savannah, GA area, and others are always looking for a great place nearby to grab a bite when they’re not in the mood to cook. Either way, we’re here for you! Our communities in Richmond Hill, GA are close to a bunch of amazing places to eat, so we’re profiling some of our favorites here for you. When you’re hungry, we’re here to help! Craving BBQ? At the top of many local lists is The Smokin’ Pig, with 4.5 stars on Yelp and a 3.6 out of 5 on Zomato (formerly the Urban Spoon). This family friendly hide-away may be on the small side, but it is famous for its variety of delicious sauces and its unique location. It’s gas station BBQ, but WOW! In a hurry or want to catch your favorite TV show with dinner? Take it to go! For an authentic pub experience, Molly McPherson’s Scottish Pub and Grill can’t be beat! Take your family to a quick trip to the British Isles at home with Scotch eggs, bangers and mash, steak and Guinness stew, chicken pot pie and of course, fish and chips. It’s a local favorite with 4 stars on Yelp and a 4.1 Zomato rating! Better known for drinks, the Fia Rua Irish Pub opens at 3pm, and is also a 4.5 star Yelp fave for tasty pub fare. If you’re looking for a live music night out with the grown-ups, it’s an excellent choice! If the idea of seafood has your mouth watering, Marker 107 is the place to be. Fresh, plentiful seafood, an accommodating staff and a fantastic view make this choice a winner. In warmer weather, sit outside for a special treat. Sure to please with 4.5 stars on Yelp and a hefty 4.1 on Zomato! A Yelper’s favorite, the varied menu with something for everyone means Melody’s Coastal Café and Sandbar Cantina pulls in 4.5 stars. Known for its unique wasabi slaw, delicious fish and shrimp tacos and generously stuffed po’ boys, onion straws and a wide selection of beers on tap, this place is a must-try for both the residents of Richmond Hill and visitors. If a sandwich will stir your soul, don’t miss out on the Uptown Deli! Also known for great soups and salads, this alternative to fast food reminds diners of a classic New York deli. Generous portions, fresh ingredients and a friendly staff deliver 4.5 stars on Yelp and a 3.7 Zomato score. It seems that every city has at least one great Mexican restaurant these days, and Richmond Hill scores big with two! Choose from El Potro, pulling in a 3.5 on Zomato and 4 stars on Yelp, or La Nopalera with 4 Yelp stars and a 3.4 on Zomato. Obviously you can’t go wrong with either one! Mmm, Asian! When you’re dreaming of rice, noodles, stir fry and sushi, try two of Richmond Hill’s favorites, Asian Asian Cuisine (4 Yelp stars, 4 out of 5 on Zomato) and Fuji Japanese (4 Yelp stars and 3.4 on Zomato). There’s a lot to love here, as each establishment is known for large servings, good service and exceptional traditional Asian flavors. For breakfast and brunch, don’t miss Bubba’s Bistro (the Sunday brunch buffet is to die for!) or the Omelette Café. Neither has Zomato ratings yet, but Yelpers give them each 4 stars! Dessert anyone? If you’ve cooked at home and are looking for a special ending, or if you’re just in the mood for something sweet, check out All Things Chocolate and More. The more being…cannoli, brownies, cookies, pecan pie squares, and the “Hot Mess” – a mix of potato chips, pretzels, caramel and sea salt all drowning in chocolate. And if this weren’t exciting enough, they’ve also got a café! Zomato loves it with a 4.0. (No Yelp reviews yet…be the first!) If we’ve missed one of your favorites, be sure to let us know.
