Crab cakes were overdone and lacking seasoning. Crab and shrimp wrapped in bacon was also overdone and too rich. Fried okra breading was sparse and under seasoned. The only highlight was the friendly staff and maybe their biscuits.

Don't get me wrong, the buffet was fine. Total comfort food, but it didn't knock my socks off for a 5 rating. It was definitely good enough to want to go back and order some good items off the menu like the chicken pot pie....More

A must when in Savannah. Good home style food and good service. We went for a late breakfast and had no wait. Just the way I like it. If you are a fan you gotta stop.

We visited Lady & Sons mid afternoon and it wasn't too busy. We heard it was always busy, but we found it a pleasant experience. The Buffet seems to be the signature choice, but we opted for selecting from the menu. We enjoyed the Gumbo,...More

I don’t believe they are open for actual holiday day/hours, but I would call to make sure. During normal day/hours you will most likely need a reservation, especially on weekends.

The Lady & Sons had its humble beginnings in June 1989, when Paula and her sons Jamie & Bobby launched the Bag Lady catering company out of her home. Soon after, the family's landmark restaurant opened its doors to much acclaim. The Lady & Sons offers The Lady's Southern Buffet daily for Lunch and Dinner in addition to a full menu packed with Deen Family Signature dishes.
