What a great place for decadent southern cooking, especially the fried chicken. The other dishes were great too. You sit down (if you don't make the first seating you probably have to wait about an hour until the next seating so get there early!) and all the food is on the table. In keeping with tradition you eat with others... More

If you're from the south and miss some home cooking this is where you will get it! If you're from anywhere else you will get an appreciation of what home cooking Savannah style means...

We are always happy to dine here. Friendly atmosphere with family style dining. If you leave hungry ii is your fault, you can eat as little or as much as you want. We met lovely people from other regions of the country, that added to the ambience of the meal. You may have to wait in a line, but it... More

Glad we finally were able to try this unique southern meal. Pace yourself because it is a lot of food. The fried chicken and greens were my favorite. Only open for lunch Monday through Friday and cash only.

Can't say we were not warned to get in line early. Although we didn't get there as early as recommended, our time standing in line was actually enjoyable. I feel like we left there with new friends. You will be seated at a table of 8-10 people, very possibly with some of your new friends! The food is also served... More

This Kinda reminded me of cruise ship dining they put you at a large table with a bunch of people which isn't bad the food is amazing you better come with an appetite and you better bring cash since that's all they take... I felt it was kind of expensive

For the past two years our family voted to spend our vacation in Tybee Island. We discovered one of the best restaurants that we simply fell in love with. Mrs Wilkes' restaurant is simply one of the best! Our first visit, yes we waited a long time, however, it was so worth the wait once you sat down and they... More

For tips about going to this dining room, be advised that Mrs. Wilkes is open only on weekdays, 11AM - 2PM. Best to get on line by 10AM. My wife and I arrived at that time and we were seated with the first group that came in when the doors opened at 11AM. We also found parking across the street... More

You need to visit Mrs. Wilkes for authentic Southern food. You are served so many choices, all family style so you can try a bit of everything. Their fried chicken is perfect, not too greasy. Their biscuits are equally good. One of my favorites side dishes is their squash soufflé - it doesn't look appealing, but is delicious. The restaurant... More

LOTS of great food!! Plus it was so fun to sit at tables with other people, some on vacation and some locals, and get to know a little about them all. Well worth a wait in line, which moved right along! I'll go back next time I'm in Savannah!
