Description: Chef Jerome Brown, has 20 years in the seafood business. Our customers are our family members, we have over 10,000 photos on the walls of our restaurant! The Old School Diner, famous for the "Wheel Chair Platter!" - Come see why Ben Affleck says " Why ask, Trust your Chef" Carpeted parking lot? Yes we have that! A quick trip from Savannah and well worth the trip! A real Hidden Gem of the Southeast, that is a quote from Southern Living Magazine!

We went out to visit the Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge. After leaving the refuge, I spotted the Old School Diner Sign. The sign was very intriguing so I looked it up online. After visiting the diner's website we decided to make a reservation.
Chef Jerome was waiting for our arrival. As we got out of the car, Chef Jerome greeted us with the warmest greeting to the diner and welcoming us as part of his family. Always trust your chef with his "Wheel Chair Platter" and you will experience southern cuisine at its finest along with magnificent down home southern hospitality. Do not pass up the sweet potato cheesecake...even if you cannot eat one more bite...well worth getting a slice to go!
Be sure to take the time to look around and especially making sure to read about the fascinating history of the diner and how it came to be.

We've been there a couple of times and loved the experience. The food was excellent and so was the service. The best part of the night is when Chef Jerome stops by to chat and pose for the family picture!
