We waited for about 1 hr in a light mist. It was worth it. Food is served family style and there's plenty of it. From rolls to dessert everything is delicious!! And if you find smtg not to be to your liking (doubtful) that's ok, there's so many other options. If in Savannah you have to go! You just have... More

It's a bit like going to family reunion, although you are eating with strangers who don't remain strangers very long. The food is incredible.

This was our third visit to Mrs Wilkes. Once again we were wowed by the variety of food presented and the quality and taste of each dish! Some of our favorites were the fried chicken, of course, the meatloaf, barbecue pork, squash, biscuits with honey, sweet potatoes, and creamed corn just to name a few! Also first time we ever...

We were told that we really should go to Mrs Wilkes Dining Room while we were in Savannah. What a wonderful experience. Yes, the line can seem long, but it's definitely worth the wait.

Absolutely the best food I've ever had. We waited 45 minutes, but was well worth it. The fried chicken was the best and one of the cooks came out and told us how they cook it. We were really surprised.

OMG...this place was amazing and the highlight of my trip. I had heard about Mrs. Wilkes before I arrived but had no idea I would enjoy it as much as i did. My daughter told me about it and so glad we had this experience! The food was amazing!

Its like being at my Grandmothers for a holiday meal. Family style seating so you get to know your table mates. Waitstaff is warm and friendly and they keep the food coming. I've been here 4/5 times over the years and I am never disappointed. Got to meet Mrs. Wilkes granddaughter and her husband. A must when in Savannah.

Our daughter suggested Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room after visiting Savannah a few years ago. She warned us that the wait could be long, and she was right. She also said it would be worth it and she was right about that, too! They really do make you feel at home with terrific fried chicken and lots and lots of sides.... More

This is a restaurant unlike most. You wait outside until a group of 10-12 are seated. All the food is waiting on the table, passed family style. There are a variety of meats, and perhaps a dozen vegetable dishes, and each one is at least as good as what I serve at Thanksgiving. This was by far my favorite restaurant... More
