OMG! Those biscuits!!!! Melt in your mouth! It’s a thanksgiving-day style layout, everything I tried I enjoyed except the cucumbers... I think it’d be an acquired taste. We arrived at 10:30am on a Friday, we got first seating. So they allow a group of guests...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. It's off-season so getting here at 10 was plenty of time to get first seating at 11. The food was awesome!!! There is so much to choose from and it's all great. Sitting with strangers was a nice experience,...More

I was told by several people that I must go to Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room and I am so happy I did. The 30 minute wait outside was so worth the southern deliciousness. Upon entering the dining room the table was set for ten people...More

We heard about this place from the TSA agent at the airport. He was jealous we were going to Savannah because he wanted to go the Mrs. Wilkes. I never heard of it so we thought we should try it. We drove by one day...More

Be prepared to wait in line for at least an hour - we waited over 1 1/2 hours - but that's part of the fun. The food inside is low country home cooking at its best. It was very good. The negatives for us were...More

I don’t know. It didn’t seem dependent on the day of the week, but it was worth waiting through he line.
