Good home cooking

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.

I was pleasantly surprised to pass by this PO folks while looking for a pet food store. It was not as large as I was used to seeing and was not sure it was a real PO Folks until we were inside and saw the menu which had all my favorites. I love their pinto beans with raw onions. I... More

Po Folks has been around as a staple of country cooking for a long time. It left the area for a while, but opened back up here in Niceville a few years back under new management. The food quality overall has greatly improved. The seating is a bit on the cramped side for me, but with their pick-up service, there... More

I can speak for this one and one in Panama City. The big thing for me is that they serve chicken gizzards! They are hard to find in a restaurant. The good news is that I can find gizzards here much easier than anywhere else.

You know it's bad when there are un known objects in your water glass. You can always check the health... More

I was thrilled to see that after 9 years this place was still there. I love their Fried Green Tomatoes, Blackberry Cobbler and chicken fried steak! Great staff- friendly, attentive and efficient. I was in town for 4 days and ate dinner here 3 nights.

This place is not too expensive and the service is usually pretty fast. My favorite thing to order is the the chicken and dumplings which always come out hot. The dumplings are big and when you sprinkle a bit of pepper, the meal is perfect. The prices aren't too high and the servers are usually friendly. The menu has a... More

This is hands down, one of the most friendly places. Our waitress was Olivia but all of the staff here are genuine, respectful, and fun. The food is delicious and traditional with cheap prices. Most everything comes with two sides and a choice of bread for no more than $8! The chicken sandwich and whitefish are my two favorites. You... More
