Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room
The sign hangs beneath mossy oaks, so you'll have to look for the line that forms during the breakfast and lunchtime hours at this restaurant. This no-nonsense eating-house has been a Savannah favorite for over six decades, serving up down home Southern treats in the basement of a brick building that dates to 1870. The seasonal menu features a rotating plethora of traditional delights, including Southern fried chicken, okra gumbo, buttery cornbread and collard greens. You won't find a bigger lunch plate in town. Family style dining, and cash only.
If you love country, southern cooking, this is the place. Our plates could not hold all the different dishes served and they were all fabulous. Even my 'picky' five year old grandson chowed down. Our family will be back every time we visit Savannah.
I liked this place because it was so different.Not your ordinary restaurant at all!!!Great, charming,friendly quaint and a bit of history too.A place to visit any time of year.Everyone would enjoy it in my opinion.
worth the wait if you like good old home-cooking...food was delicious and you certainly get enough...price was right..If you are a health-conscience individual, you may find this type of food not to your liking...carbs galore.
Our team was in Savannah for a EMS Competition, Remembering going to a “Family Style” Restaurant there in 1981, I checked on line, I found some not so good reviews. I took our team to Mrs. Wilkes where I found the Restaurant, the Food , the Service and Price to be excellent. My group was very please with my selection (making me look good). We had a great time and great meal. We actually met Mrs. Wilkes Grandson.
Great Place and We will be going back .
I enjoyed Mrs. Wilkes'. It reminded me of my childhood at my grandmothers. It was fun visiting with the other people at your table and the food was good. If I had to choose I'd take The Lady And Sons hands down but if you can do both this is a fun experience.
i loved the hole place and i loved it the way they are serving the food, it is completely unthinkable to do this here in germany, but the food was delicious and i will go back every time i am going to savannah
Great place, great food and meet some many fine folks

This is by far our favorite olace to bring all our out of town guest to.
It is the return trips that make it so good. Everyone wants to go back to Mrs. Wilkes.
Just wish it was open for dinner.
