Here is a little history of the Lady & Sons! The Lady and Sons restaurant had its humble beginnings back in June 1989 when Paula Deen started The Bag Lady out of her home. The Bag Lady began as a lunch delivery service with Paula's sons, Jamie and Bobby, delivering bag lunches to area business people in their offices around town. As the delivery and catering business grew, The Bag Lady expanded in 1991 into a full service restaurant named The Lady in the Best Western hotel on Savannah's Southside. The Lady became quite successful over the next several years as the locals who had become familiar faces with The Bag Lady became familiar faces at The Lady. But Paula wanted a new ho...Read More

Welcome to Tybee Island. Tybee means "salt" to Native Americans, but the name of this low-key seaside resort now brings to mind words such as "sun", "surf", and "fun". Located 18 miles east of Savannah, this small barrier island boasts a wide, 3-mile long beach that's backed by sea oat-covered sand dunes and is perfect for sunbathing, people-watching and frolicking in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The island's south-end pier and pavilion is a splendid venue for strolling above the ocean and listening to the music of the live bands. Although vacationers are lured to Tybee mainly because of what it provides in the way of recreation and relaxation, those with a love of history won't be disappointed...Read More

As we came into Tybee Is we also noticed that they have a Casino Boat that takes off twice daily. We did not stop and go out, but we did want to let you know that there was one available if you wanted to go.

First Night Dinner: We arrived here a little past 1pm. Got the site setup and Bobbi, who had worked all night (she's a nurse), decide to take a little nap. I fixed dinner for when she got up. Menu: grill med rare rib-eye steaks, Maryland crab balls, blue cheese sauce for the steaks salad with Rance dressing and balsamic vinegar and black truffle oil for me baked potatoes with butter and sour cream. Dinner was excellent, and we had a Little left over steak and potato but they will get used at breakfast. The temperature was about 72 degrees and had a slight breeze blowing off the ocean. Dinner was great and the company was excellent!
