I am planning to travel to Savannah with my in-laws from Brasil. I would like stay in a B&B so that they can have that southern hospitality feel. Does anyone have any reccomendations? I also would like to know how Paula Dean's restaurant is? Thanks!!

We had lunch at Paula Deen's The Lady & Sons last week. OH MY!!!!! Be prepared to eat A LOT of really good homemade Southern food. Her fried chicken is very good and not greasy. You can order off the menu or do the buffet and we all chose the buffet. I only went thru once and got a lil bit of the things I like (1-piece Fried Chicken, mashed potatos, pork stew w/ carrots, cream style corn, black-eyed peas, macaroni & cheese). At your table they serve cheese biscuits and hoe cakes to everyone as many as you want. I had about 3/4 of my biscuit and my hoe cake and did not even come close to licking my plate clean. I'm a HUGE sweets person and when desert came the kids each got the chocolate ooey-gooey something or other, I got the banana pudding (serving was about the size of a small dip of ice cream) and they sat a serving of the peach cobbler on the table for us to try. I took one bite of the girls chocolate goodness, one bite of the very good peach cobbler and could not even come close to finishing my banana pudding. I thought I was going to blow up. Do NOT just sit down for the rest of the day after this meal or you may regret it although you will be VERY READY for a good nap.

You have to make a reservation to get in to eat at The Lady & Sons. They start taking reservations at 9:30am for lunch that opens at 11:00 but people are lined WAY BEFORE 9:30. Same thing with dinner reservations, people line up hours before they start taking them. There is however a way around this......... take the Paula Deen tour. We were on the tour on a Sunday morning. Some of the hotels you can reserve a room that includes this package (Inn at Ellis Square a Days Hotel is one such that we stayed at and was very nice and w/in EASY walking distance of The Lady & Sons). When you take the tour they pick you up at your hotel then take you around to all of the points of interest for Paula fans except where she currently lives and a few other high points of interest. Some of the stops are a produce stand where she buys fresh produce and you can sample some of their items (Georgia peaches were in while we were there and VERY good). Boiled Peanuts are one of the hot items to sample as are many of their canned/pickled items. Another stop was Byrds Cookies - YUMMY! Then to top things off lunch is included at Uncle Bubba's Oyster House and Uncle Bubba was in while we were there and VERY friendly. This is her brother and she is part owner of the place. With the tour you get the ability to call in and make a reservation w/o having to stand in line. You can call after you get your ticket info that morning on the tour and reserve a time anytime that day or week. Sure beats having to go stand in line twice. We had reservations for lunch on a weekday at 11:00 when they open. You stand across the street and the lady that has been w/ her since she was at the Best Western first starting out comes out w/ a triangle dinner bell and asks, "Are ya'll hungry?". You BETTER answer her The restaurant has seating on the first and third floors w/ the kitchen and offices on the second and it holds a lil over 300 people. VERY efficient. Do I recommend it? YES. I also recommend Uncle Bubba's Oyster House - one of his specialties is charbroiled oysters.
