Awesome food! My Wife and I both got the lunch buffet and were plenty satisfied and plenty full considering you’re served a biscuit and hoecake as soon as you’re seated. The end of your meal we were served a dessert (all part of the cost)....More

We expected the menu to be bigger but what they have is really good. They start you off with a corn pancake and cheddar biscuit, both of which are out of this world on a good day and downright magical if you're hungover. The people...More

We love Paula Deen and her other newer family kitchen locations in other cities. Honestly, the new restaurants that she operates puts the original Lady and Sons to shame. The food is ok here, however super basic. The salad bar is about eight basic items....More

I wouldn't suggest coming on a weekend unless you've got some serious time to kill. We waited an hour and a half and were finally seated on the 3rd floor. The food was good and the shop attached is fun but there's only so much...More

I had heard many great things about lady and sons. I had a delightful dinner with my wife and friends. Bring your appetite because there is more food than you can handle. All around good food.

If you love good, old fashioned down home southern cooking like grandma used to make, then you need to check out Lady and Sons, owned by Paula Deen and her sons. We were with another couple and opted for the buffet: Fried chicken, ribs, black-eyed...More

Make a reservation, ask to be seated on the third floor. You have a choice of buffet or order from a menu. Hope this helps, 82815ram86

I don’t believe they are open for actual holiday day/hours, but I would call to make sure. During normal day/hours you will most likely need a reservation, especially on weekends.

America loves the "First Lady of Southern Cooking" Paula Deen and her The Lady & Sons restaurant in Savannah, Georgia. The Lady & Sons had its humble beginnings in June 1989, when Paula and her sons Jamie & Bobby launched the Bag Lady catering company out of her home. Soon after, the family's landmark restaurant opened its doors to much acclaim. The Lady & Sons offers The Lady's Southern Buffet daily for Lunch and Dinner in addition to a full menu packed with Deen Family Signature dishes.
