This was a fun experience, and you should consider doing it, but it not an absolute must. I'm glad we did it, but would probably not go again. The line is very long, we came at 10:15am (45 min before opening) and we were seated at 11:15am (there were about 45 people in front of us). There are i think... More

Great meal! Good service! Fun people. Food served family style and they do not run out. Real good chicken, BBQ pork and beef pot roast. REM: Bring cash or check, no credit cards. Open 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. No reservations, you wait in line. WORTH THE WAIT! Just get there no later than 1:30Pm. The service was excellent, be... More

As you can see the line was long and it was an hour wait on a 40 degree day in the shade! But it was so worth the wait - the food was delicious (make sure to try the fried chicken, creamed corn, and the fresh biscuits), staff was helpful and made you feel at home, an all around lovely... More

We (4 of us) got here about 10:00 a.m. and there was already a line. We stood in line for about an hour, had some friendly conversations with those around us and watched as line eventually formed around the corner. We were the last group to go in (us four plus six more who were sat at our table) for... More

Disclaimer, if you do not get in line early (1030 ish) you WILL have a wait. I have been living in Savannah the last two years and this was the first time I went to Mrs. Wilkes. It was the week before st. patties, a lot of people are in Savannah so the two hour wait was to be expected.... More

Had the pleasure of dining here a week ago during gorgeous Spring weather. The 30 minute wait went by all too quickly given the comfortable temperature, shady trees and the entertaining company of out of state visitors to Savannah. We loved the homely atmosphere, the exceptionally pleasant staff, and the opportunity to interact and enjoy a meal with strangers. The... More

This unique dining experience was amazing. Even though I'm vegetarian I had sufficient choices. The wait wasn't very long, and I completely enjoyed dining with others.

I get to Mrs Wilkes early to be in one of the first groups for the blessing. I love all the veggies served and the fried chicken wings.

My husband and I travel all over to meet people and learn about other cultures. This was a great place to go and get that in the US. When we first drove into Savannah this was our first place to go, but upon arrival the line was out the door and down the street. We opted to try the next... More
