“I’m proud to add Walk-On’s to my portfolio and introduce this one-of-a-kind brand to the coastal city of Georgia,” Forrest said. “I’m excited to bring my experience with other Atlanta concepts to Savannah and quickly establish the brand as the go-to destination for locals to enjoy scratch-made food in a family-friendly, game-day atmosphere.”

At Walk-On’s, each dish is made from scratch, using fresh ingredients to bring its mouthwatering, Louisiana cuisine to life.
