Historic Location

Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room is located on one of the most elegant streets in Savannah. Jones Street runs through the center of the Historic District lined with moss laden trees and paved with cobblestone and near the trendy shops of the Design District. It wasn’t until 1987 that Mrs. Wilkes consented to a sign out front. She made this place somewhat of a legend, and her family is keeping it a family affair, continuing the tradition of fine Southern food.


Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room is open Monday through Friday, from 11am–2pm. As customary, we are closed throughout the month of January.
