Southern Cooking

This is your chance to take in the famous down-­home Savannah Southern cooking and a little bit of history all at the same time. The problem is, with so many choices, how do you decide where to go first? The historic Olde Pink House? Paula Deen’s famous Lady & Son’s Restaurant? Or local favorite, Mrs. Wilke’s Dining Room? Whichever you choose, we’re sure you’ll remember that meal long after you leave the restaurant.

Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room

A line gathers each morning at 107 West Jones Street. At 11 o’clock, the doors of 107 open and the lunch crowd finds a seat at one of the large tables-for-ten shared by strangers. Tabletops are crowded with platters of fried chicken and cornbread dressing, sweet potato souffle, black-eyed peas, okra gumbo, corn muffins, and biscuits. The menu changes daily so regulars can have something different every day. Stop by and enjoy the special pleasure of a meal shared with neighbors and strangers.
