Got here on a Friday afternoon around 10:30am and got seated at 12:30pm. Ate for about 30 mins. Fried chicken is great and the other sides were okay. We enjoyed the experience, eating with strangers. It's about $22 for mostly all you can eat/when your table finish eating. Oh yeah, the sweet tea is amazing!

All reviews are correct great real southern food , worth the wait! Only open 11-2 so make sure you get on line in time to get in. All tables are large family style with 12 per table so you will be sitting with other people. No alcohol served, dessert included! CASH ONLY!

This is my second time at Mrs. Wilkes I really wish I had a couple of stomachs the food is that good. The service is friendly and everyone at out table was very pleasant. There are 18 dishes to sample plus fried chicken and pulled pork. Best collard greens and coleslaw I have ever had. If you go get there... More

So much good food! I counted 24 separate dishes of food brought out to our table. We were served family style with 9 at our table. We arrived at 10:40 and they opened at 11:00. For this time of year we could have arrived at 11 and still gotten seated. Waitresses were attentive, and overall just a great experience.

We got in line at around 10am and got seated around 11:40am. It was completely worth the wait and I would do it again. It was delicious homestyle food, served family style at a large table where you might be seated with strangers if you do not have very large party. The food was reminiscent of family holiday meals, at... More

So glad we did this. It is a great sampling of southern food, ( sitting family style and passing around serving dishes at a table for 10) of all the southern low country cooking and sweet tea. Best of all, out comes southern fried chicken and boy I wish I could have that all the time!

Everything everyone says about Mrs. Wilkes is true: excellent food, and as much as you want, family-style seating and service, an exceptional experience! The fried chicken was to die for. The innkeeper where we stayed suggested that we arrive toward the end of their luncheon (it ends at 2:00). That way you don't have to wait in line (or for... More

Had such a great lunch. So many choices for sides. Great fried chicken. All servers were great and made you feel at home. Reminded me of my Grandmothers Sundays meal with all of our family. Would recommend to at least give this a try. ❤️

Family-style Southern food. The fried chicken is great. The sides are great (albeit a bit salty). The experience is one of a kind. Worth the wait.
