Old Style country

Heard someone raving about it so had to try this place! Really good country cooking! Tons of options, especially the side dishes! Great sweet tea! Corn bread is killer, their fried chicken is good and crunchy ( not healthy) as well as the country fried steak! Really substantial, tasty comfort food... read more

Well, this is not my cup of tea sort of speak but I was with a large group. Too boot I probably ordered the wrong thing. I will say that most everyone I was with seemed to enjoy what they had. The staff was very nice and friendly and there is ample parking.

I've been to PoFolks several times over the years... everything we have ever eaten here is good- blackened fish, fried chicken, even fried livers! They're salads are very filling and fresh. They're sides are good. Fried green okra and green tomatoes are great! My friend loves their strawberry shortcake. Service is always friendly and quick. Food is always fresh and... More

We visited Po Folks twice during our week long stay in Niceville/Bluewater Bay. The first time was in the evening during the middle of the week and the second time was for lunch on a Sunday. The midweek food was very good - large portions and good selection. The weekend food was overcooked and the service was poor.

We went here today with some friends to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our appetizer of fried green tomatoes very tasty. Our meals hot, fresh everyone was very happy and then my husband's dessert served with song from the staff. His strawberry shortcake was very good and came compliments of PoFolks. Our server was very patient, attentive and pleasant. Definitely recommend... More

This resturant food is so good and such a value. The servers very nice and attentive. The country fried steak is just indescribably out of this world. I have ate several times and never disappointed. Southern cooking done right. Can't go wrong here.

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.

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.

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
