A new restaurant specializing in southern-style dishes is coming to Youngstown's southside.

Savannah Joe's will open later this month at 2905 Glenwood Avenue in the Glenwood Plaza across the street from Glenwood Grounds.

The restaurant will hold a soft opening Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25, from 12-6 p.m. with a limited menu.

The official grand opening will be held Tuesday, March 28 and Savannah Joe's will welcome customers beginning at 1 p.m. with a full menu.

Restaurant owners say the menu contains plentiful portions of southern-style "food for your soul" including fish, oven-baked mac & cheese, collard greens, banana pudding and more.

"I put my heart, soul and spirit into the preparation of all our signature dishes. The meals that I prepare are made with the finest ingredients and served with care. I recognize that people make a choice about where to dine and spend their money. I want them to experience our southern-style hospitality and the pleasure of tasting Savannah Joe’s succulent food and giving them a reason to return again and again," Chef Joe Bowers said.

After the grand opening, the restaurant will be open Tuesday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
