This is a must do if you visit Savannah, food is awesome. The employees were friendly and very attentive. We go every time we visit Savannah. One call out is they only take cash or check FYI

We arrived there at 10:00 am and were part of the second table to be seated. We were done eating and walking out the door at 11:45. Waiting an hour for the food was reasonable, but it probably would not be worth waiting much longer....More
