Southern hospitality in Niceville

Good variety,good service,prices are terrific,. I like the southern fried cat fish with slaw and also the white fish. A moon pie can1t be beat for desert.The coffee is great and refills are free. They also offer sweet and unsweet tea. If it is your Birthday they will give you a free desert.

OK, I know it is corny, but for what this place is, it is great! There used to be lots of this chain, now there are only a couple left, so run in and eat before corporate decides to change or close them! Fried chicken is of course the thing to get with sweet tea!

Missing the home styled cooking taste like my mother use to make. Missing some unhealthy fat that seems to make it taste better. I never add salt but it needs it, just don't add it. I've tasted better at the mom and pops on side of road when traveling.

There aren't many Po Folks left. They were very popular in the 80's but slowly disappeared but there is one still remaining and it's in Niceville, Florida, on the north side of Highway 20 heading East from Niceville to Bluewater Bay. Po Folks has the expected southern food, fried chicken, liver & onions, catfish dinners, great biscuits, fried green tomatoes... More

We like Po Folks because they have a few specialties. One is the appetizer, fried green tomatoes! We try it order it every time. They do it so well. Also we enjoy beef liver. Can't even get it at grocery store lately, to make our own. So we order the Grilled Beef Liver with Onions. You can get a few... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. Elizabeth ordered black eyed peas with her meal. When the meal arrived she thought something was not right with the peas. I tasted them and we determined the peas had soured. The manager agreed and she went to the kitchen and "threw them out". Now, my wife and I cook at home... More

Love this place, good food and awesome service. It's a little run down and the inside just needs to be cleaned and renovated. With that aside, you get plenty of food & drink at a good value. Hate they did away with the senior menu.......

My wife and I were looking for a good home cooked meal, and we found it. Good clean family atmosphere where the prices are fair for the amount of food you get. Definitely would recommend to anyone who misses moms cooking.

Great B-B-Q meals, good price point value. This is a chain but the local place in Niceville takes additional pride in their restaurant. Good place to take the family, kids will enjoy selection.
