Lady and Sons Savannah GA

It would have been impossible to be in Savannah and not eat at Paula Deans restaurant so why I was in Savannah I did just that.  I went through Savannah I decided to have dinner at Lady and Sons in Savannah.  I got there around 8 pm and they had just finished their dinner rush so their was some seating available.

The server sent me up to the 3rd floor to eat.  The third floor had about 30 people in it so for the most part it was empty.  I was sat near the bar.  The waiter was kind,you could tell he would have wrather seated someone else but was good at his job anyway. and asked what  I wanted to drink I ordered the sweet tea.  and When the sweet tea came back he asked me what I wanted for dinner I asked for recomenndations.  He suggested their dinner buffet with fried chicken and all the fixings so that is what I ordered.  

I started out with their salad bar it was ok but it didnt have all the items I thought it should have mostly because the table was relatively small.

The buffect table was bigger but other than fried chicken and catfish it had only about 4 vegatables and rolls on it.  Which was OK but not enought selection for what the buffet cost. 

After sitting down my tea was there and my dinner rolls which were delicious.  The chicken was cooked correctly it was not overcook and it still had lots of flavor despite being fried.  I had 4 pieces of chicken total and 2 rounds of sides the sides were mash potatos which were good and corn which tasted like it came from the can. 

After dinner the waiter brought me my dessert which was the ooy gooey butter cake which was delicious.  The perfect finish to the meal.

When I got up to leave I went to ask where the bathroom was but my waiter couldnt be found.  I found it by accident and away I went

The meal was good overall but I expect more variety for $20 per person  I expected better more attentive service

Skull Creek Boathouse

While in Hilton Head South Carolina I got a change to eat at the Skull Creek Boathouse. As it was 6pm and close to dinner time so the place was packed. I took a number as they stated it would be a 45 minute - 1 hour wait. I asked where a good place to wait was and they advised that down by the channel there is an outdoor bar.

 However, being there were people already drunk at 6 pm they wanted to take my picture,which I am usually not OK with. While I was at the bar the two female bar tenders asked me what I wanted I ordered a reds apple ale I wished I had ordered one of their mixed drinks are seeing them but a Redds is what I ordered.

Jennifer was one of the bartenders names took my order I asked her if I could order off the menu she said I could  I asked for a recommendation and was recommended the Sevechie. I ordered the tropical sevechie.

While waiting on my food I ordered another Redds however like I said previously if you go order the mixed drinks that look great.  i had guests come and go as I was sitting at the bar there was a nice couple from Virginia the beltway area and a drunk fisherman.  All were pleasant.  When the sevechie arrived it was delicous.  I dont like seafood but it tasted like a fish had died from fruit overdose.  It came with tortilla chips they would have been better had they been warmed up.  As I was finishing my meal.  One of the locals decided to sit next to me and chat me up wow he was  drunk. We chatted for 45 minutes while I was eating and exchanged random conversations. He explained he was a fishing captain and took people out on his boat to go fishing. Tried to get me to go out but because I did not know him and was only there for 1 day I declined he swindled me into buying him a beer which was fine because his company was worth the price of the beer.

The bartenders were busy but not real chatting I minded my business and they theirs, if I needed something they would be quick but I wish they had been more friendly.  As I was getting ready to leave I asked Ashley the other bartender where the restroom was she advised me I asked which one they would prefer I use she stated she didnt care and should probably use the womens.  The line in the womens room was long but they had another restroom so I went and used it.  Overall good experience if you are in Hilton Head The Skull Creek Boathouse is defintely reccomended
