Neighborhood Spotlight: Richmond Hill

Published on

Just beyond The Ford’s gates is Richmond Hill — a city of more than 10,000 that still exudes a timeless small-town charm. From bustling waterfront eateries to historic landmarks, Richmond Hill offers unique experiences and attractions that will appeal to all ages. For that reason, we curated an insider’s guide to Richmond Hill so you can explore with ease. 


Fish Tales

Voted “Best Seafood Restaurant” in Richmond Hill, Fish Tales is set along the waterfront in a casual, family-friendly space featuring a lively, Caribbean aesthetic. Enjoy views of the marina, soak in the tropical vacation vibes and be sure to order their delicious fried shrimp baskets and world-famous hushpuppies, a family recipe passed down multiple generations.  

Marker 107

Marker 107 offers some of the very best seafood on the Southeast Georgia coast, all accompanied by incredible vistas of Kilkenny Creek. Most come for authentic Southern-fried flounder and jumbo lump crab cakes, but the fresh scallops and oysters are just as succulent. 

Bubba’s Bistro

A crowd-favorite coastal heritage restaurant, Bubba’s Bistro is serving up classic, Southern fare in a relaxed, contemporary atmosphere. Come for lunch or dinner and indulge in lowcountry favorites like shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes and crab cakes. 

The Local on 17

Don’t want seafood? Make your way to The Local on 17 for world-class, dry-aged steaks. The popular restaurant proudly serves USDA Prime ribeyes, porterhouses, strips and USDA choice tenderloins—all of which pair perfectly with their extensive collection of wines.




Coastal Bryan Heritage Trail

Hop in your car and embark on a driving tour of the Coastal Bryan Heritage Trail, a scenic route that winds through roads dotted with private homes and historical cemeteries and churches. Along the way, you’ll learn about the many fascinating people and stories that make up the rich heritage of south Bryan County. 

Fort McAllister State Park

For those wanting to explore Richmond Hill by foot, look no further than Fort McAllister State Park. Situated on the banks of the Ogeechee River, the scenic park features plentiful artifacts from the Civil War, from cannons to bombproof barracks to palisades, while teeming with giant live oaks and Spanish moss for an idyllic outdoor escape. Whether you come to stroll, fish or picnic, Fort McAllister State Park is a must-visit for any nature or history enthusiast.

Richmond Hill History Museum

To learn why Henry Ford is essentially synonymous with Richmond Hill, head to the local History Museum (formerly Ford Kindergarten) and see why Henry and his wife Clara have had such a lasting impact on the town. You’ll also gain insights into how the Colonial, Revolutionary War and Civil War eras shaped the community.
