Fodor's Review

Everyone knows that this is the city's best Southern cuisine: When President Barack Obama was visiting Savannah, he and his entourage had lunch here. Luckily he didn't have to join the rest of the folks lined up outside in order to enjoy the fine Southern fare, which is served family-style at big tables. It's been in the same family for decades, and the original Miz Wilkes really did run this historic place as a boarding house, serving three meals a day. Her granddaughter and great-grandson are keeping it a family affair in more ways than one (kids under 12 eat for half-price). These days you can expect fried or roasted chicken, beef stew, collard greens, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, sweet-potato soufflé, and corn bread, along with favorites like banana pudding for dessert. No alcohol is served, but you can get a lot of sweet tea.
