Dining at The Ford Plantation is what one would expect from one of America's finest private club communities. The experience is enhanced by Ford’s close proximity to Savannah, whose culinary reputation attracts talent from the finest restaurants and leading culinary schools of America.
Drawing on this talent and inspired by the regional cuisine of Coastal Georgia, Ford chefs produce a consistently superb dining experience—from the local catch-of-the-day to Southern home-style cooking. Low Country heritage is celebrated with an abundance of fresh seafood.
For every bow to tradition, there is a subtle enhancement—iced tea infused with the essence of Georgia peaches; a plate of cookies fresh from the oven served with a miniature milkshake—simplicity elevated to perfection. The signature restaurant is located on the upper level of The Ford Plantation Clubhouse with floor-to-ceiling windows and a wide veranda overlooking the golf course, salt marsh, and wildlife sanctuary.
A delightful breakfast is served at The Main House with friendly Southern hospitality. Casual open-air dining is offered at the Lake Dye Grill throughout the summer. During special events, such as the annual Homecoming, the vintage Oyster House is the site for traditional Low Country oyster roasts and barbecues.
The Ford Market
All members are eligible to buy products, such as fresh seafood, steaks, free range chicken, produce, and wine. Our goal is to supply our members with the best products available in the easiest manner possible. This gives our members less time shopping and more time enjoying the amenities here at Ford.
The Ford Market also features various specials, such as homemade bread, artisanal cheese, prosciutto, and soups, every week. These specials are available on the evenings our dining facilities are open.
The Ford Plantation provides an opportunity for members and guests to grab a snack between meals and on those days when our dining facilities are closed. On the lower level of The Clubhouse, a reach-in refrigerator is stocked with cold soft drinks, freshly-prepared sandwiches, candy, chips, and packaged snacks. There’s also cold beer available in the Golf Pro Shop—members and guests just ask the Pro on duty. The whole program—other than beer—is self-service and on the honor system (guests may pay by credit card in the Pro Shop). Members simply help themselves and sign the posted form.
