Ruby Tuesday/The Lady and Sons


This is the famous Lady and Sons restaurant in Savannah, Georgia. Does it look like what you thought?

There's Paula Deen in the window smiling at us! No we did not eat there. We had tried it before and decided to eat somewhere else.

Post a picture with some red in it then join Mary the Teach for Ruby Tuesday.

Lots of red bricks holding up the restaurant!
My guess is the food there ain't that great after all? :P
Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Ralph said...

That is an outstanding building, with the faded brick and brilliant red and white awnings. Nice. I watch Paula on TV, and the cuisine looks great there. And probably inside the restaurant as well!

Paula Dean? I think I need to Google her to find out more about her. But maybe not since you decided to eat somewhere else. LOL

Nice shots, Dot!

Paz said...

Lots of red going on there. At least her place was good for a Ruby Tuesday shot. ;-)

Love the top photo. It's timeless. Could be 40 years or 40 minutes old.

Oh, that's really cool! I love the reflections in both shots. Very nicely captured. Thanks for stopping by my place. :)

Happy RT.

judi said...

Nicely done! Red on Red. :D

Carletta said...

Love that first one - the peeling faded brick enhanced with the bright red awnings - very cool shot!
So are you saying the food isn't what we would expect? :)

Hey Harriet said...

I haven't heard of that restaurant (I'm on the other side of the world) but it sure looks like a charming establishment. Love the old building and all the reds you captured in both shots. Especially the reflection of the red car! Priceless!

Shoshana said...

It somehow matches the picture in my head. Was the food great?

Mine's here

Betsy from Tennessee said...

We tried to eat there when we were in Savannah last June. We couldn't get anywhere near that place --and we didn't have reservations. SO--we went to Uncle Bubba's instead. It was GREAT. Have you eaten there????

Hugs,
Betsy

What nice photos. I especially like the first one with the varied tones and textures, the awnings and brick.

I've eaten there, once, myself. I wouldn't return there.

I would've expecting a different looking restaurant. Sorry to hear that the food wasn't to your liking.

laura said...

I love Paula Dean! Fun post!

Mar said...

I love the building and your shot!!
Mine is up, happy Ruby Tuesday!

Malyss said...

Unknown to me, but the curtains with red and white strips are the same we have on a market here. And is it a real woman in the shop window, or a picture? her smile seems so ..freezed!

this is an interesting looking place

Tina Leigh said...

I wasn't impressed with the food. Regular buffet style food at a higher price. I can cook better than that.

Annie said...

What a great old building. I watch Paula all the time. How nice to see that she is truly as accessible as she seems.

Martha (FL) said...

I love the red and white stripes.

happyone said...

A lot of red there and I like how you caught the red cars reflection in the window! Great capture.

Gattina said...

This restaurant in red bricks looks very welcoming !

prkl said...

I like that car reflecting on the window. Not sure if it's the window or car that shines so much. But it looks great. Happy RT!

Daryl said...

Is Paula Dean tied into the Lady & Sons?

maryt/theteach said...

Dot, the place could use a paint job! Great post for Ruby Tuesday! At first I thought it was really Paula Deen and then I realized... Ha! :)

Dianne said...

Paula looks good ;)

I think the building is beautiful, old and with character

love the angle you chose

Deborah Wilson said...

Dot,

Savannah is a neat city - it's been many years since I've visited. I'll get down there this summer though...

On your post below, "The Fields of Georgia", the photos are lovely - represents the best of springtime in Georgia.

It will be another week (or few) before we see alot of fields like that in our area.

Arlene said...

Beautiful red brick building. The lady inside the building is beautiful. I wonder why you did not eat there!

Happy RT, Dot!

sunnymama said...

Wonderful building with lots of lovely red. It's a great picture!

Old Wom Tigley said...

I've never heard of the place.. or the food. What caught my eye was the brickwork...

Rose said...

Love those red and white awnings!

Cindy said...

I like the building, but no I thought it would be some grand building or an old sounthern house.

Tricia said...

Was it not good when you tried it last time? Hmmm?!!

Zaroga said...

A building I would expect. Frank often watches Paula Deen and then fusses about how she cooks. I think she uses way too much butter :-)

Great pictures, Dot.

Patti said...

the old building with the bright awnings makes for a cool contrast.

It looks like an interesting place to eat. I'm surprised you decided to eat somewhere else.

"his-self" said...

I ate there a few years ago, under protest, but that's where The Bride wanted to go. I'll not go there again...too many better places in town. Elizabeth's on 38th St. and Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House to name two.

Simply Heather said...

Dot, that Paula Dean in the window shot is really unique :)...I like it.

You know, my daddy is from Georgia...from a little town just outside of Macon, originally. His mother lived in Macon for many, many years. I think he was brought up in Dublin (does that sound right?).

My heart is always warm to my southern spirits :)
