We went on a Monday with our Girl Scout troop, arriving a few minutes after noon. Only waited about 10 minutes to be seated and had the honor of being at the table with Mrs. Wilkes daughter Margaret. I'm from a long line of Southern cooks, and this was much like what I'm familiar with - and some of it's even better than anything I've tasted! Even with picky teenagers, they all raved about the food. My only regret is that all of the food didn't make it around the table - not that I would have had any room for it anyway. Greens, roast pork, pot roast, heavenly fried chicken, Savannah red rice, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, snap beans, peas, creamed corn, butter beans, cabbage, rice and gravy, biscuits, cornbread, carrot salad, sweet ice tea, banana pudding and strawberry shortcake are what I remember on that day.
Note this site says it's $8. May have been true years ago, but it's $14 now.
My best advice is to take a minute and browse the little gift shop area - and don't dare leave without buying a cook book! Not only is it full of recipes for all of this fabulous food, it tells a wonderful history of Savannah during the life of Mrs. Wilkes. Fascinating reading!
