We had many friends tell us that this was a must when in Savannah. Food was good and dinning concept clever, but I don’t think it is worth the money and wait time in line. The granddaughter of Mrs. Wilkes visited tables to ensure that...More

Waited over two hours to get in and enjoy the experience. There were almost thirty side dishes on the table. Chicken was good and they kept the biscuits and corn bread coming out hot. Service was good.

It felt like Thanksgiving - so many delicious dishes to chose from plus sweet tea and dessert. It’s served family style - totally different than any place I’ve visited before. Plus it’s family run. Worth the wait.
