Any info on Mrs. Wilkes restaurant?

Can anyone tell me about Mrs Wilkes restaurant? Best time to go..type of menu offered...any day of the week that they are closed? Going to be in Savannah on Sunday the 28th January and thought we would like to try it...also are there any good seafood restaurants?

I do not believe Ms Wilkes is open on Sunday, sorry.

FYI it is a lunch (11am-3pm) only place. Family style service, you are seated with a table full wether you know them or not and platters and bowls are passed around like at home. The food is very good a little salty, typical southern; fried chicken, short ribs, pot roast, greens, mashed potaoes, cornbread. It is a fun experience and worth doing.

There is usually a line from 30 minutes before they open until they come out and tell people they are the end of the line, but it moves pretty quickly.

this was one of the most enjoyable meals we ever had. the food was well prepared, the service impecible, and the company we shared the table with have become friends. outstanding meal, and delightful experience. it was more of an event than a meal, and we never miss an opportunity to revisit.
