I simply wanted to share what a FAB lunch we had at Sweet Potatoes. Gumbo, Chicken Jerk and their "piece de resistance" - Banana Pudding.

I was down I Savanah on business and wanted to try something other than....I visited this restaurant on Tuesday and man the fried chicken was on point along with the mac and cheese. The collard greens where ok, just didn't hit my taste buds like I thought. The food was so good I revisited the next day and notice not... More

We have been to Sweet Potatoes several times. The service is excellent and the food is wonderful. It's easy to find but parking can be a challenge. There is a shopping strip mall behind it which offers more parking.

We went there after reading some good reviews. It proved to be true. Place is nothing to write home about but the food was. The pecan-crusted chicken with sweet potato was absolutely delicious! The server Trish was very attentive and made excellent recommendations. Would go back again.

We ate here a year or so ago and loved it. Came back this past week and we were really disappointed. The pot roast was tender but the gravy tasted packaged. The meatloaf was inedible to me. Thankfully my BF allowed me to switch plates with him. Nothing special to be eaten here-- basic cafeteria style food. The banana pudding... More

My husband and I like this place. We eat here a good bit when we want a reasonably priced, balanced meal. It's hard to find a place that serves a nice selection of vegetables, especially vegetables that are not seasoned Southern-style with a lot of pork, but you can find plenty of choices here. I am addicted to their Chicken... More

you'll really like the cartelized brussel sprouts here. like everything else we sampled on this 2nd visit it was done with a southern flair. while i do not know if they use cast iron pots here or not the assorted pot liquors would decorate the best brown bottomed corn bread ever made. they do manage to throw in a few...

This cannot be one of the best restaurants in Savannah. The food was, at best average. My wife and I both had the "peach glazed barbecue chicken", in a word, disappointing. Soggy skin and average flavor. Grits, excellent, collard greens,not what I'm used to but excellent. Banana pudding g-r-e-a-t. Service okay. Owner busying himself with his phone and making silverware... More

From the outside it doesn't look too Hot, We both had Blackened chicken dish, garlic mashed potato's Harvard Beets for her, Roasted Brussel sprouts for me, everything was fresh and served hot to the table,,, fast too,, may have been a slow night.... will be sure to go again when in the area for sure..... Very Good....
