We decided to try The Olde Pink House in Savannah, GA for a truly upscale dinner on a recent visit, and we were not at all disappointed, it was a great experience, start to finish.
We were told reservations were needed or there'd be a 40 minute wait, but then when we got there they said we could eat in the bar area or the tavern. We went to the bar and it was on the ground level, open to the outside, with tables in and out. They said 10 or so minute wait and so we found a spot at the bar (as another couple was led to their table) and had some wine while waiting.
We had excellent service, start to finish. We were soon seated, and we started our with Fried Green tomatoes and crabcakes. Both very good. They actually split the order for the two of us. Yummy
Tommy had the She Crab soup, it was excellent, not too salty, and a nice crab flavor.
I had a salad, it came out dressed without the requested dressing on the side and when our server saw that, offered to get me what I ordered, but it was OK and not overly dressed, a nice salad.
For dinner I had pan fried salmon over horseradish potatoes with a bit of cucumber/radish salad on top. It was excellent. The potatoes could have used just a bit more horseradish for me, it was very subtle, but it was good. The salmon was cooked perfectly.
Tommy had the pork tenderloins with sweet potatoes and asparagus. The pork was nicely flavored and extremely tender. The sweet potato was good and the asparagus nice with a bit of crisp, just the way I like it.
Overall a great meal.
Afterward we toured the house a bit, it's an olde house and quite swanky, I can see why there's a wait to eat in the main dining rooms...there are a bunch of them first and second floor. Very nice.
