The food at Sweet Potatoes is very good. The only problem is it is a small restaurant and the service, although very friendly, is very slow. The food is kind of an upscale twist on down home cooking. The trout was excellent.

I have never been impressed with the food here though it has been some time since I was there. Was expensive and not particularly special. Not many vegetarian options.

Sweet Potatoes is a unique restaurant--the embodiment of the taste and skills of its owners. One is a great cook and the other a great hostess. Wonderful place to take people who think they don't like simple country southern food. Fried chicken, meatloaf, whatever, I've never had a bad meal. As many reviewers note, almost always seems to be a... More

Food was so different yet familiar. We all got appetizers to try different items. Everything was great. My husband really loves the Fried Green Tomatoes.

A varied menu for different tastes though small, you might have to wait, nice atmoshere. Southern food without just beans and collards on the menu. Fried green tomato sandwich is great. Creative recipes!

Excellent meal at Sweet Potatoes but get there early - the dining room is small and it will fill up quickly! Terrific service from Nadia, large dinner portions - oh boy, that fried chicken and horseradish mashed potatoes were delicious! - large enough to split and they also offer half-portions. A tad slow coming out of the kitchen but worth... More

Sweet Potatoes has a variety on the menu for the different tastes in your group and though small, you might have to wait, a nice atmoshere. Focus on southern food without just beans and collards on the menu. Creative recipes!

I heard a lot about this restaurant. We went on early on Saturday evening. There was about 30 minute wait. Due to small size, we waited outside. Nice atmosphere, food was tasty and nicely presented. I had the salmon since shrimp and grits is appetizer here. Service was good. May try again for lunch.
