Ordered 2 turkey dinners as they are on the menu which includes green beans. The order taker even double-checked by asking if I wanted the green beans for both dinners & I said yes. When I got the dinners to their destination, one was fine but the other had baked beans, which really didn't taste too good with turkey, stuffing... More

Food was below average. Restaurant is dirty and I won't mention the rest rooms. Priced very well and portions are acceptable.

PO FOLKS is a great little establishment that specializes in southern home cooking. I have had the fried chicken a few times and it is delicious. All the sides I've tried have been great. Basically when I need some good home cooking I know I can always go to Po Folks.

First time trying PoFolks. The service was very friendly and fast and attentive. The food was great. We both had fried chicken and it was as close to my grandmothers as I have ever had. This place will definitely be on our revisit list each time we come down to St. Pete Beach.

We know that no one can beat grandma's cooking, John, but hearing that it was pretty close is one of the best compliments we could get! On top of that, I couldn't be happier to hear that your service was fast and attentive. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon, so I hope you' won't stay away too... More

Service couldn't have been slower with our server Kristal. The food was no better than a Hungry Man TV dinner. The green beans are canned, the chicken was dry aged. A complete food disaster. I need to call restaurant impossible on this place. By the way, can we update the inside of this restaurant to the new century? Sorry Po... More

You can imagine how disappointed I am to hear this, J. It's rare that we get comments like this, especially about our service being slow. You can be sure that I'll follow up with your feedback, but I hope you'll consider giving us another chance. I'm sure this was an off day for us and would love an opportunity to... More

Have eaten here for almost 20 years, all you can eat country fried steak Saturdays, all you can eat Fried Chicken Sundays. Great food most of the time, great atmosphere, still southern feel as ever. Will always be a favorite. Top off a Rays baseball game with PO Folks, what a great weekend it makes.

Home-style cooking is rare in St. Petersburg and this is a welcome choice. Often a wait so I suggest off-peak dining times. Good service, food and prices.
