We had a quick pitstop here for a piece of pecan pie and it was delicious, if a tad too sweet. The homemade iced tea was really refreshing. As soon as we sat down to order our coffee and tea, we were given a free...More

Wife and I decided to order off the menu instead of getting the buffet. The crab cakes and stuffed shrimp were average to really good. Atmosphere was on par with your local chain restaurant. Something just felt off or lacking. Wouldn't recommend or return. Would...More

Not sure what I expected but there are a lot better plain folk restaurants in most small towns in Georgia. Paula and her sons are not there so don't expect any thing special. Find a local spot in town for a better meal and go...More

It's a good distance away several blocks but as beautiful as Savannah is the walk will be no problem if you enjoy walking! Have fun because Savannah is such a great place!

Soon after, the family's landmark restaurant opened its doors to much acclaim. The Lady & Sons offers The Lady's Southern Buffet daily for Lunch and Dinner. In addition The Lady & Sons offers a full menu packed with Deen Family Signature dishes Monday through Saturday, for Lunch and Dinner.
