Second visit to this little, unassuming restaurant. Found it through on line reviews and had to check it out during our last trip through Savannah. Definitely worth the 20 minute drive from our hotel. The chicken is delicious and the pot roast was awesome. Try the "sweet potato of the day.". Had the banana pudding for dessert. Very good but...

Enjoyed our dinner last night....lighter than many "home style" places we have eaten. My wife had the fried shrimp which she said was outstanding....the accompanying corn pudding (which was very slow to arrive) and lima beans were reported to be quite good too. I had the vegetable plate with a baked sweet potato, green beans, sliced tomatoes and black-eyed peas... More

The shrimp po-boy was delicious, but the banana pudding was amazing. Living in NY, I dream of this banana pudding, and cannot wait until I visit again, and will go straight to Sweet Potatoes just for their perfect pudding!!! The service is good too - our server kept our group's drinks filled, and was very attentive.

After many nights of eating on the road our family of five was getting sick of the bloated feeling from eating at restaurants each night. We had read the good reviews for Sweet Potatoes and definitely wanted to sample some genuine southern-style cooking. The drive from downtown Savannah was quick and easy. Our server was very friendly. The atmosphere was... More

My family ate at Sweet Potatoes TWICE!! If you want down to earth southern cooking, then look no further than Sweet Potatoes. It is a little drive from the Savannah historic district but it definitely worth it. We ate where the locals frequent. The fried chicken is excellent! Sides including the corn pudding, sweet potato fries were delicious. We would... More

Stopped in on road trip to Florida with family and parents. Good simple cooking with great flavors. Had the fried chicken and the peach-glazed barbeque chicken with various sides and it was all good. Banana pudding dessert is very good. Waitress was super friendly and service was great. Funky decor and location should not put you off - you must... More

It is by far the best southern restaurant we have ever eaten at. We had southern fried chicken which was absolutely delicious. As 2 sides we had roasted brussel sprouts, okra and sweet potatoes which was included. The atmosphere was great and our waitress was extremely nice and friendly.
