We picked this place due to TA reviews and the tips came in very handy. Things like the cost is $20 per person cash or check, no Credit or Debit cards accepted. They will let you in to use the restroom while waiting to get in, and the have cups and water outside if you can't wait or get too... read more

We arrived an hour before the lunch hour and stood in line over an hour to get in ( we were about #100 in line on a Thursday) .Met lots of people in line and that was the best part. The people who own It are lovely, the atmosphere is Southern. Tourists from the North sitting at our family style... More

After a long morning of walking my boyfriend and I were hesitant to wait in the long line, but we did it anyway. So glad we did! The food was incredible and wonderful dining experience to sit at a table with strangers. By the end of thee it was like the hey we're family.

As a traveler from Colorado, I was told by a Susannah native that I must go to Mrs. Wilkes. I have to say, simply the best place this side of the Mississippi. An absolute wonderful establishment. Get there early as there will be a line out the door and around the block.

This family style restaurant was recommended on a local Savannah tour. We got there at 1:45 as they only serve lunch from 11-2! They had water for us as we waited , which was nice in the July heat. The food was delicious and filled our desire for southern comfort food! The table was completely covered with about 25 items... More

I planned for our family of 5 to go to Mrs Wilkes for lunch from the Trolley Tour on our first day to Savannah. I didn't realize you have to wait in line and what all that entails. We walked several blocks from the trolley stop in the July heat to be met with a line going down the street!... More

We had to wait in line for about 2 hours and it was very hot that day. We did meet some really nice people though while we were waiting and we actually all sat together.The food was really good and there was plenty of it. Be sure to go there really hungry. I am glad we went but can't say... More
