You have to try this place. They serve good down home cooking. Everything is always cooked just right and the banana pudding is fantastic.

We tried this place on a friend advice and I am glad we did. It is not fancy but it is quaint and a real delight to eat and meet the people that eat there regularly. I had the peach glazed BBQ chicken with sweet potato fries and it was delicious. My wife had the grilled meatloaf and the baked... More

We couldn't leave Savannah without trying the famous banana pudding. This place is as casual as casual gets. Just a little hole in the wall type place with great food. I had the pot roast with garlic potatoes. The roast was tender and perfect and even though I love garlic I did not like the potatoes. It was wayyy too... More

Sweet Potatoes gets pretty consistent high marks, but I find it average and overpriced. If you find yourself in this part of the city, maybe it's a place to go if you can't agree on anywhere else. It's in a very unattractive shopping center is an unattractive part of town.

I visited Sweet Potatoes Kitchen with a large group of friends. The restaurant has the feel of your standard "meat and 3" local joint with a little bit upscale flavor thrown in. We had ample seating and our server was top notch. I ordered the glazed ham steak, but I quickly realized that my friends had made some very tasty... More

This place is a little gem! it's not fancy but the food is amazing. Dress is jeans and a t-shirt or better. everything on the menu looked southern-soul food amazing (they even have some Caribbean jerk options). The best sides in my dining group were the garlic mashed potatoes and the green beans! All the entrees looked amazing on the... More

I was in Savannah for a medical appointment. I went to my TA app and found this little jewel of a restaurant. It took some driving, but, when I arrived and had to wait for a parking place, I figured it might be good. It was. I had the buffalo chicken sandwich which had the right amount of kick and... More

The hotel recommended this place for some good southern food. I had the pot roast over garlic mashed potatoes, side of candied apples and side of red beans and rice. It also came with a biscuit. this was by FAR the best meal I have eaten in Savannah, GA!!! Desert...banana pudding was beyond what I expected! And the service was... More

This place is nothing fancy, and is in fact all the way out South, about as far from the tourist areas near the river that you can get. It's truly a 'local joint', but as Guy Fieri would say... "They're doing things right!" You've just got to try this place. Home cooked everything, and, as they're name implies, they have... More

This is one of my favorite Savannah restaurants. In recent years I've noticed a lot of tourists are finding Sweet Potato's, too. The food is good southern home cooking, but a little better than that. I usually have the corn pudding as a side, and this time I also had the wonderful mac and cheese (this is not a health... More
