This is one of the best restaurants in Savannah. Much better than Paula Deen's. I give a 10+. Get there early, long line,but worth the wait.

If you are in Savannah than Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room is a must visit. The southern cuisine served family style is to die for if you like Moms home cooking. Great atmosphere and great service. You’ll always remember the trip to this fabulous restaurant.

Get there early. Lines start well over an hour before it opens. Beware the line cutters! Amazing food and tons of it. Nice people working there. You want for nothing. This place lives up to the hype.

It was a hot day and we were in line for 2 hours, but it was totally worth the wait (they had free cold water). Inside it is like sitting down for a delicious home cooked meal, the fried chicken was some of the best...More

My wife and I went for lunch. Outside temperature about 100 degrees. Line was at least 45 minutes but the folks in line much nicer than those at the table over which there is no control as you are seated arbitrarily. Food was mediocre but...More

I don't believe there are stairs since it is ground level, but possibly one small step at the entrance, sorry, I can't recall. But I believe it is handicapped accessible. You may want to call to confirm.
