Romantic Inns' B&B Innkeepers Dine in Style at Chart House Restaurant in Savannah Where Happy Dining Experiences Are Assured

SAVANNAH Georgia (February 11, 2014) -- The Savannah bed and breakfast innkeepers entertain 365/24/7. Not with simply a comfy, warm bed for the evening, our romantic B&Bs offer unique historic inn hospitality in Savannah, Georgia that is more in tune with the happy spirit of Let Me Entertain You, the song written by Stephen Sondhein and Jule Tyne.

Michael F. Bailey, Managing Director at the Chart House,
welcoming the Romantic Inns of Savannah bed
and breakfast innkeepers.
The distinctive dining restaurant is located on
overlooking River Street on the historic
Savannah harbor bluff downtown.
The final line is "And we'll have a real good time." [Lyrics below]

That means knowing with unquestioning confidence where the best of Savannah is assured, before we recommend it. Our reputations as hospitality experts is on the line, too!

On Tuesday night, it was a wonderful treat for our Romantic Inns of Savannah members to be invited and hosted by Chart House restaurant. It was a welcomed and unique evening of food and wine tasting, socializing (or visiting, as we call it in the south).  

The cuisine, ambiance and distinctive flair of Chart House dining made the evening worthy of photos (below)!  Here's your chance to meet the Romantic Inns' innkeepers!

"An active part of the picturesque and thriving Savannah riverfront, Chart House epitomizes the best of modern-day and colonial-era Savannah," adds marketing chairperson Jackie Heinz of Zeigler House Inn. "We thank Chart House owner, Landry's, Inc., for its role to keep 'Savannah moving forward today without forsaking its past', as Kathryn Foster described the city momentum (Deserert News, 1991)."

For member innkeepers who often recommend Chart House, there were no surprises: another enjoyable meal and memorable evening. For those Romantic Inns members less familiar with Chart House, the fashionable restaurant became an immediate hit, especially with director Michael Bailey's assurance to please our discerning Savannah B&B travelers. 
Our evening of fine food and wine featured Frenched Lamb chops with a lovely black currant glaze or chutney,Calamari served with a chilia sauce, Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto, Oyster Sliders, Homemade plantain and pita, several variations of hummus including roasted red pepper edamame.  A link to the Chart House dinner menu is here.  The popular restaurant recently announced it is open for lunch also on Saturday and Sunday (11 a.m. - 3 p.m.).
The Frommer's guide review shares a succinct back story for the prime location of this popular fine dining restaurant: "Overlooking the Savannah River and Riverfront Plaza, "the home of the mud pie" is part of a nationwide chain -- and one of the better ones. It's housed in a building that predates 1790, reputed to be the oldest masonry structure in Georgia and once a sugar-and-cotton warehouse. You can enjoy a view of passing ships on the outside deck, perhaps ordering an appetizer and a drink before dinner. The bar is one of the most atmospheric along the riverfront...."

We hope you'll choose soon to "Let Us Entertain You!"

LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU (lyrics)
Let me entertain you
Let me make you smile
Let me do a few tricks
Some old and then some new tricks
I'm very versatile
And if you're real good
I'll make you feel good
I want your spirits too climb
So let me entertain you
And we'll have a real good time, yes sir
We'll have a real good time
And if you're real good
I'll make you feel good
I want your spirits to climb
Let me entertain you
And we'll have a real good time
