Goose Feathers Pecan Roll

Goose Feathers Pecan Roll

October 6, 2017

Looking for a causal, inexpensive quick bite of breakfast or lunch in Old Town Savannah? Goose Feathers just might fill the bill. Convieniently located on Barnard between just north of Ellis Square between Congress Ln & St Goose Feathers offers up a tasty array of sweet treats along with a small selection of hot breakfasts and sandwiches for lunch. We popped in for a quick breakfast before catching the Old Savannah Tour bus which convieniently picks up on the other side of Ellis Square from Goose Feathers.

Goose Feathers has a strict policy of nobody taking a seat until you stand in line to place your food order. Use the time to make your food selections from the menus offered in a stand by the front door. I ordered the Bird’s Nest ($6.95) which is a “nest” or “bowl” of grits topped with homemade salsa, two poached eggs, cilantro and shredded cheddar cheese. This tasty and filling dish was quite good and is recommended. My dining patron had the Sticky Bun which was a little hard on one side from overcooking slightly, much better on the other side which was perfectly cooked. It was good but a bit inconsistent. The one service (kitchen) problem we had was our order came out late because they overcooked my eggs and had to redo the dish. So others after us got their food before us as a result. Disappointing but the properly prepared dish helped make up for that tiny mistake.

Service was good but obviously limited since you wait in line to place and pay for your order. Attire is casual; t-shirt and shorts get you in the door although most dress a little better than the minimum. Major credit cards are accepted. Parking is basically non-existant other than in downtown parking garages and walking thereafter.

Conclusion: Goose Feathers is a nice, quick bite in Old Town Savannah.

The Lady and Sons

October 5, 2017

It was a disappointment. They really push their buffet on you instead of ordering off the menu. The menu is fried, fried, fried and all sorts of uninteresting whether fried or not. So after my dining companion ordered the buffet the server said “so that’s two buffets” making my decision for me. I gave in. That was probably my critical mistake other than booking a reservation here in the first place.

It wasn’t that good. Chicken was mushy near the bone. Sides were OK, nothing more. My dining companion said the smothered pork chop was cold so I didn’t even bother trying it. Dessert was average at best. They forgot our drinks. Finally got them and they were wrong. Total cluster. I felt it was like going to the Golden Corral with a little extra salt added for twice the price. Seems to me Paula Deen & Sons are phoning it in and cashing checks. Three floors of buffet tables worth. Average rating because it was better than the Golden Corral. Otherwise I would’ve dinged it with a two star rating for Poor.

Reservations are accepted. Major credit cards accepted. Parking in the area is non existent other than parking garages with a short walk to the restaurant. Dress is casual. Shorts and a clean shirt get you in the door. Ambiance is loud on all three floors. You’ve been warned.

Conclusion: The Lady & Sons isn’t worth it unless you’re simply a die hard Paula Deen fan with no chance of seeing her.

  • 2015 Château Haut Beaumard – France, Bordeaux, Entre-Deux-Mers, Graves de Vayres (4/10/2017)
    WIML88

    Tasted blind.

    Yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of grapefruit and orange rind. Flavors dominated by grapefruit. Bright acidity, medium body. Drink now.

    This is obviously a ringer. It is not Chardonnay. Smells and taste precisely like a Sauvignon Blanc or Sauvignon Blanc Blend. (88 points)

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of hazlenut, vanilla, creme and yellow pear. Flavors of creme, vanilla and lemon curd. Medium acidity, medium to full bodied. Drink now.
