“Fresh and delicious cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I didn't know what to expect when we first arrived. Let me tell you, the service was down home, and the staff made you feel like family. I haven't experienced this type of doing before, but the people here, across the board, go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We love you Savannah, and do not regret moving here.

“A must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

You must go to Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House. It has fantastic food and great service. Be ready to wait in line!! We waited in a line for about an hour. Once we got in, I really understood why everyone was waiting. Truly one of the best restaurants in Savannah!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

friends wanted to go there and well we did and I must say it reminded me of home in so many ways and everyone was respectful and even bowed head to pray when I did for my own food so i was impressed all the way around and well worth the wait,

“Closed until February!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

I wish I could provide info on the place, but after making a special trip to eat here, we found a sign indicating they were closed until February. I wish they had a phone recording to this effect, as we tried to call before making the trip.
