I do have to say we didn't have to wait more than 5 min. past our reservation time. The part of the meal that we enjoyed most were the hoe cakes & cheese biscuits! We were spending a girls' weekend & were really looking forward to dinner at The Lady & Sons. We all got the buffet so we could... More

I see there are mixed reviews on this restaurant but I think it is fantastic! Nice atmosphere and you can't beat the food. The fried chicken is the most flavorful chicken I've had. It is the best fried chicken I've ever had. Everything is delicious. I love the brussel sprouts. This was my 5th trip. A must when visiting Savannah.

Food is hard to beat. Come hungry and try the buffet, the selection and quality is first rate. Be sure and try the cheese biscuits.

We order the buffet, after the last time in town about 2 years ago I emailed the manager letting him know that when ordering the buffet most of the food is not hot... More

This was our second time here and it never disappoints! Good country cooking! The smothered pork chops were phenomenal! The gooey butter cake is delish, but I don't know who could eat a whole piece. The banana pudding and peach cobbler were good too!

My wife and I went here the other day and had a very enjoyable lunch. The salad, meats, and vegetables were well done. While we really don't eat like this very often, you can go into this restaurant and either eat buffet or order off the menu. The only thing I would say, is that you may need reservations if... More

We were quickly sent to third floor. We decided to sample a little bit of everything by ordering buffet. There was a salad bar which we... More

We decided to give Lady and Sons a try and omg I'm so glad we did! I had the buffet which changes each day but the night we were there it had fried chicken, beef stew, low country boil, cabbage (the best over!) mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese, Lima beans etc... The Buffett comes with dessert too. All was delicious... More
