Georgia on Our Minds

Thursday is Savannah day.  We go into Savannah at least once on our trip to Hilton Head, and this year it is Thursday.  So that means Thursday is the day we eat at Mrs. Wilkes\’ Dining Room.  We will wait in line for about an hour, telling all the newbies how it is done since we are pros at it now, how they can get a drink from the cooler Mrs. Wilkes sends out for the hot patrons waiting to sit at her table for collard greens and fried chicken and at least ten other dishes not counting the meat loaf and beef stew.  I am salivating even now.

Then we will meander on down to River Street for one of those big apples covered in caramel and chocolate and nuts or up to City Market to see what kind of goodies they have there.

River Street

We know it will be hot because, after all, it is Georgia in the summertime.  But it will be so worth it.

  1. Savannah is beautiful. We always eat at Spanky’s on Rivert Street 🙂 Hilton Head is our favorite. What part of the island do you stay at? We stay near Forest Beach…absolutely love renting bikes and just riding for hours. That is always our favorite part. Ahhh, you’re making me want to come to HH right now…we went last August and had a grand time. If you want to do something different and childishly fun…go to Coligny Plaza and go to the pottery store (can’t remember the name of it) but you get to pick out a piece of pottery and paint it however you like, you leave it there and they fire it. You have to plan ahead b/c it usually takes a day or two to get it back. I think you would love it! Have a good time!!!


    • Next year we will do the pottery store, leaving Saturday morning so too late this year. And Spanky’s will have to wait till next year, too. We are taking notes of things we want to do next year. It has been just great. I tried to get the gals to rent bikes, but I don’t think they wanted to work that hard. 🙂


  2. Love Mrs Wilkes’ Dining room. It has been several years since we have been there. Ron has relatives in Savannah. Does she still bless the food before you eat? Glad you are having a good time.


    • It was soooo very good. And the grandson blesses the food because Mrs. Wilkes has passed away. If you are there right at the first serving, you get in on the bell ringing and the blessing. Everything is just super delicious!!
