Southern comfort at its finest

Go there at least once a month. Never had a bad meal or bad service..the value is by far the best around. Two dinners for around $20.00. Try it if you like down home country cookin

We haven't been to a Po folks in a long time. We drove by this one on our way to treasure island. We came back to St Petersburg just to eat here. As good as we remembered. Clean, pleasant people, and delicious food. Highly recommend it!!!

I go here approx. 3 times a month. I like the Large Country Salad and breadstick, the 2 Piece Fried Chicken dinner, the fish sandwich (which is huge) and the Burger Platter. All are good and reasonably priced. I love their sweet tea and feel it's one of the best around. Their staff is excellent and the service is always... More

Great fried chicken! This place gives you an insane country meal for around $10. You can't beat it if you are really hungry. Nice down to earth place.

I hadnt been to a Po Folks restuarant in like 15 years and was happy to see one here. Had the fried chicken and it was delicious, the sides were great and the cornbread too. The menu had many choices to pick from everyone will find something they like.

As my title says, much of the food is incredibly salty, especially the fried fish. I've eaten here several times, and, while the service is excellent, their cooks are in love with that salt. Salty food is not a plus--there's a salt shaker on the table! Their macaroni and cheese is boiled macaroni with cheese whiz poured over it--really sorry... More

We ate here the first night in St. Pete while running around setting up our rental house for a two week vacation. I had their special which was roast turkey which I love, even the green beans were fantastic. The wife had a seafood platter with grilled fish and shrimp which we thought would also be grilled but it was... More

Very pleasant visit. Although at peak hour on a Friday, hostess was friendly and attentive. Server was a young man who didn't stop all the time we were there. He didn't waste a step and always checked the tables and offered his attention when needed. Food was the usual excellent fried chicken and fish and the french fries perfect, everything... More
