This was our first restaurant stop on our trip to Key West. We chose the restaurant based on the recommendations posted on Trip Advisor. It is located in a strip mall setting. Our waitress was very good and was hustling to meet her customer needs. There were a few tables full when we arrived but as we ate our dinners... More

We went this past weekend, very laid back atmosphere. Our waitress was not very helpful or inviting especially when asking about food/specials... The meatloaf was okay, I ordered the peach bbq chicken I thought it was based in the sauce... It's not just poured on top. The sauce is good but the chicken breast was extremely dry, (I know breast... More

We stopped in this gem on our way to orlando from charleston. Can't say enough about this establishment. The wait staff was overly friendly and the food incredible. Hands down best banana pudding on earth. And please get the Catfish BLT with a side of the collards. Incredible.

This is a popular restaurant in Savannah. The three of us were there for lunch and it was very busy. This caused slow service but the food was very good. I enjoyed the fried catfish. My wife has the BBQ chicken and my cousin had a chicken club salad. The server was very pleasant and I don't blame her for... More

This was the sweetest surprise. The atmosphere and décor is fun, casual, cheerful. The food is excellent. I had a special, chicken pot pie. There was no pie. Chicken pie filling with lots of moist delicious chicken, mushrooms, carrots and celery over four fluffy southern style puffy biscuits halves. It was fabulous. I'm having the other half for lunch today.... More

Cutesy retro decor, with music of the 60's. Bbq peach chicken that falls off the bone. The wait staff accomodated my request for 2 pieces of thigh meat. Strong coffee, great pecan pie (no ice cream, what a bummer). Go off hours because the place gets packed during mealtime.

From the crispy hot fried catfish to the scrumptious collards, and from the perfectly cooked baked sweet potato to the melty, multi-cheese mac n'cheese, just a perfect plate of delicious. My first time in Savannah - what a welcoming meal! Plus great, friendly service. A do not miss spot !

Recommended by our hotel and so glad they did. Super friendly and attentive service (Nicole was great) and excellent food. I had the blackened pork chops with red beans and rice and wife had fried catfish. Both were excellent and the portions were good sized. And of course you have to try the banana pudding. Great service and food, good... More

As soon as we drove into Savannah we went to Sweet Potato it was around 4 pm and we were seated right away. The place was filled with locals so we new it had to be a good place. My husband the Chicken Gumbo over rice, he loved it but admitted it could have had more chicken, the order comes... More
