Two Words: Brunch Buffet

Let me make something clear for people who have never eaten here. Sweet Potatoes has two entrances on the same strip. One of on the far side, and the other is one the other side. If staring at the strip, the right side is a restaurant and the far left offers the brunch buffet. My fiance and I went... read more

this place is really small (4-5 tables), and not located where your would think a restaurant might be on North Ave. However, the food is wonderful, Both the fried chicken and corn bread should be ordered. If you like sweet drinks, the sweet tea and lemonade are great. The sweet potato fries have an unusual syrup/sauce that has, brown sugar,... More

The food was stupendous and made with love. Each dish that my guest and I tried was seasoned well and mouth watering. My favorite item on the menu was the short ribs which were literally falling off of the bone. Since this is a small restaurant it can get easily crowded which is the only drawback.

The reviews on Yelp were a bit deceiving. The restaurant that's open to the public is a very small take-out storefront with 5 little tables around the door. They do a very good business. I was in town with my daughter and the Yelp review photos looked nice. Those pics were from their private party room that is down the... More

Ate here tonight with friends. I had the fried whiting dinner with sides of candied yams and potato salad. (My friends had whiting, fried chicken, bbq ribs, and sides of collards, rice, potato salad, and candied yams. They generally liked everything except the sides of rice and collard greens, which both required hot sauce to make them worth it to... More

We order take out every so often on Saturdays for dinner. The food has always been good and seasoned well. The portions are decent but the prices are a little high for take out. If you can call your order in it will save you time. Placing at the resturant requires a rather long wait as food is cooked to... More

Totally disappointed. The fish dinner we ordered to go was so over-fried that we could not eat it. I telephoned the rest and informed them I was bringing the fish back. When I brought the fish back I decided not to try the fish at all instead I asked for chicken. The chicken was refried dry and greasy. KFC would... More

I thought the good was pretty good except the crab cakes as they were burnt and I could taste the oil that needed changing. The dessert was ok nothing to write home about. But the customer service killed it for me. They were rude and unprofessional, which is just as important to me as good food if not more. I... More
