The food...JUST WOW!

There is a reason this place is rated so highly for their Fried Chicken. Just WOW! I've had a lot of fried chicken in my day and this might very well be the best I've had. I had the collards (you have to try this if you are getting soul food) and the okra (served with a homemade jalapeno ranch).... read more

My husband and I have missed good southern cooking since moving to Central Florida several years ago. It's been especially hard to find fried chicken made just right. We felt like we hit the mother lode at Five Sisters Blues Café. The side items and cornbread were great as well. We had collard greens, black-eyed peas and yams. We regretted... More

We were a group of 6 adults that had reservations. Inside was so loud that you couldn't talk. Fortunately it was a beautiful evening and there were tables available outside, though we did have to stand around for a while while the attendant sat at a table doing paperwork. However, once we were seated our waitress was amazing. She was... More

My husband and I took his mother and step-father here for a mother's day dinner. They had been here before and recommended it, so we decided to go. We were very impressed. The service was excellent and attentive. We ordered a Bushwacker which was very good. I ordered the chicken and waffles and I only ate half of it because... More

Very very nice atmosphere and the music was perfect! We were greeted and seated immediately and with a warm smile. Our server Ian was really cool, attentive and knowledgable. His drink selection was delicious! My fried chicken was really tasty, Mac & cheese perfect, and the yams needed to be sweeter, but the cinnamon and nutmeg was perfect. My hubby... More

I was willing to wait even though I was there 30 minutes before doors opened. I was one of first to put name on wait list. MARCO was in charge of wait list. Marco was very incompetent he was unable to deal with public. I don't want to sound racist BUT it look evident Marco was taking care of his... More

After hearing for some time just how great their food is I can only assume we hit an "Off Day"! Their "World Famous" fried chicken was served lukewarm and so dry it could choke you... but for the Sweet Tea, which was the high point of the meal. The pulled pork platter, served with lukewarm / wilting sweet potato fries,... More

The food was so delicious that I had to tip the chef - truly. This is a fabulous restaurant a bit away from the main downtown area. FIND THIS RESTAURANT. We started with the sampler. The fried green tomatoes were divine, as were the crusted shrimp and the crab cakes. The waiter described each of the four sauces at presentation... More

Our mistake was visiting this restaurant on a graduation weekend. The place was filled with graduates waiting and dining with all their friends and relatives. The menu was varied and the emphasis was on southern cooking. Our meals were slow in reaching the table, but that was probably due to the large influx of customers. I asked the waiter about... More

Don't go here if you want healthy food. I like to eat healthy but occasionally splurge on a good southern home-cooked meal. The fried chicken is good but the last time we ate there my husband's chicken fried steak was not good. It was square and appeared to have been bought frozen and not made in the house! I can...
