This is a fun, friendly, neighborhood kind of restaurant with a strong Southern streak and an eclectic menu. The food was great but almost secondary to how nice an experience it was to dine there. It's quickly becoming a local landmark, not only for these reasons but because of the social consciousness of its owners in providing employment to those... More

I have to admit that I have never eaten dinner there, but the lunch is great! I work downtown and this is convenient to walk down and grab a quick lunch. Their food is wonderful! I don't think I have ever had a bad experience there. All of their dressings are homemade and the blue cheese is to die for.... More

I think this is a pretty cool restaurant, and I would try it again, but I went with friends on what was billed as Burger Night, so I decided to order one. One of my family also ordered a burger. We were asked how we wanted them cooked. She said "medium well", I said "medium rare". They both came back... More

This place rocks. The art, music, staff and food all blend together for a dining experience that you wouldn't expect to find in winston. Their food is exceptional and when I host colleagues from out of town I always feel comfortable that Sweet Potatoes will measure up to high culinary standards

One of the best restaurants in the area. Great service, excellent food, great bar, and overall a terrific dining experience. The owners (chef and manager) are hands on and always interested in your experience. The staff is well trained and friendly and the food, southern at its finest, is also very innovative.

We have visited this restaurant on more than one occasion and have always been pleased. The staff from the Owner to the bartenders are all invested in making sure that you have a chance to fully understand your options and their concept. This ranges from ingredient to straws. The people are always pleasant. The fried pork rinds cannot get any... More

Received a friendly greeting as soon as I walked in, and my waiter continued in that vein. The Tomato Florentine soup was full of chunks of tomato and nice pieces of spinach. The oyster salad was equally good. And the sweet potato bread pudding, with caramel sauce and whipped cream, was exquisite - the perfect start to a long weekend... More

Sweet potatoes was recommended by students at a local university as a "must" while in town. Great service and super menu. I had dirty rice with shrimp and it was fantastic! Sweet potato bread pudding was heaven! Give it a try!

The restaurant was nice and cozy a little small but the food was excellent. The fish was something special. I went for lunch not knowing that they closed at 3p and they reopen at 5p. I was seated timely and I got a very friendly waiter which made the little wait go away. I wanted to eat somewhere different and... More

Loved the Sunday chicken. We went for Mother's Day. The kids loved the sweet potato pancakes. The sweet potato fries were excellent.
