This is a real homey restaurant tucked into a small strip mall. I ordered pot roast so tender you did not need a knife. My friend had fried chicken that melted in his mouth. Great biscuits as well. The piece de resistance was the pudding. My friend said it was better than his great grandma's and promptly ordered another to... More

The best meal we had while in Savannah. We only wished we had found it earlier in our trip! We had dinner at Sweet Potatoes and enjoyed every bite. My husband had the Buffalo shrimp po'boy with a side of mashed potatoes. He said it was very good. I ordered the vegetable plate. It consists of 4 sides and a... More

My wife and I made a special trip to Savannah to this restaurant while vacationing in Hilton Head. We saw a cooking/baking special on the Travel Channel that featured this place and the chef claiming to make the best banana pudding in the south. So we came and gave it a try, it's pretty good but far from the best... More

Sweet Potatoes Kitchen was literally one of my favorite restaurants I have ever been to in my life! (I am not one to exaggerate so please take this literal!) On our family trip this summer we wanted to have some good southern food (as I am from the western United States) and we were not disappointed! The staff was great... More

The front desk lady at our hotel recommended this place to us - and we are very glad we came. It's kind of in a strip mall and was sort of unassuming as we drove up. It's nothing fancy but there was lots of space inside and it was busy with locals - not a real tourist spot which was... More

Love this place & it emory your account either! I could make a neal with just their delicious sides. Lima beans + dill is my staple. I love their roast, chicken & mac & cheese (Tuesday & Thursday only), cheese grits, corn pudding, black eyes peas... I could go on... but just try it for yourself!

We were in Savannah for a short time and wanted a good meal, so after checking Trip Advisor we drove about 35 minutes to Sweet Potato Kitchen. Boy, are we glad that we did! I had a catfish BLT which one of the best fish meals I've ever had! My cousin ordered bourbon wings which she really enjoyed and we... More

When my wife and I arrived in Savannah, one of the employees at the rental car agency recommended Sweet Potatoes. We read the reviews, many of them were glowing, so we decided to venture off the beaten/tourist path and try it for ourselves. We ended up being leaving after eating a couple of their signature entrees and banana pudding, somewhat... More

Omg, I was so impressed!!! The food was amazing!! Especially the sweet potato with the pecan butter. The best part was the sweet potato cheesecake! Service was good. I can't say enough good things about this place.

We love sweet potatoes because the selections are varied- something for everyone! Veggies to meat fish, ect we discovered that the banana pudding is freshly made upon ordering - you can tell because the bananas are always fresh ! I recommend this restaurant because they have good value for the money.

Thank RuRuStatesboro
