I will be visiting Savannah this summer and was wondering if anyone has any advice on getting into The Lady and Sons restaurant. I've heard the wait is super long and they start taking names early. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

They start the lunch list at 9:30 AM and the dinner list at 3:30 PM. Reservations are taken for parties of 10 or more.

I know the food will be delicious.

The list might start at 9:30 and 3:30 but I think people stand in line for a couple of hours before just to get on the list. When I was in Savannah the line (for the list from what I was told) was a couple of blocks long.

I have pictures of the long lines around there. It gets crazy. People will wait for hours. I have yet to see that place not with a line.

Check out Mrs. Wilkes instead. I hear the food is better and the lines are more reasonable. They're only open for lunch.

Buses literally drop off people to wait in the line for the list so expect a long line in the morning.

Though, you pretty much walk right up when your times comes later that day.

Decent food, though I guess good means lots of butter (was disappointed that it wasn't more creative to be tasty than adding a ton of butter).

I haven't heard of Mrs. Wilkes. Where is that? I too have heard some people were disappointed with the food at lady and sons. It has also been suggested to eat at a place called the Pink House? Anyone ever eaten there?

Mrs. Wilkes is the original family-style place to eat in Savannah. It started out as a boarding house where the guests ate together as a family. The food is excellent, traditional Southern cuisine. It's located on West Jones Street, a few doors from the intersection of Whitaker St. It's only open for lunch.

The Old Pink House is more elegant and ideal for a special occasion. It's located (I'm pretty sure) at Abercorn and Bryan St. I enjoy getting a drink in the basement in the wintertime and sitting in front of the fireplaces. They will also serve your dinner there. But upstairs is lovely and reputed to be haunted.

You can Google "Mrs. Wilkes" and it's the first hit. I didn't know if links were allowed.
