This Australians first Soul Food experience; sensational mixture of flavours. Not normally one to eat waffles, let alone with chicken and maple syrup. But what a taste sensation. Our group of 5 really enjoyed the meals, the apple pie desert and the service. Do yourself a favour.........

I had the Reverend Al Sharpton (the house special) which was absolutely delicious. The ambiance is funky and the staff, especially Tasha, is simply divine. They can't do enough for you! I felt right at home and would certainly return when I am next uptown.

The breakfast here was so good we went twice while in New York for 6 nights. A rustic american dinner this place is really well priced and the staff are really friendly as well. I can highly recommend the corned beef hash with eggs and grits!

We went there twice during our hollidays in New York! The food is excellent, the staff is very friendly and the price is good. We enjoyed so much that we went a second time to say goodbye to Ny.

We were in town for Thanksgiving and decided to eat here. They offered their regular menu along with the pre fixed Holiday menu. We all wanted to try the regular menu food. Negatives: None really. Was it perfect, no, but I don't have any valid complaints that would cause me to write a bad review or not come back. My... More

If you're looking for authentic soul food in Manhattan, this is the spot. I would definitely choose Amy Ruth's over Sylvia's any day. The Rev. Al Sharpton (chicken and waffles) is my personal favorite. Get them smothered in gravy if you're feeling nuts. The Nate Robinson (BBQ spare ribs) are also no joke. For sides, you can't go wrong with... More

Three of us ventured up here for Saturday lunch. Would have loved to try the breakfast but too late. I had the fried chicken sandwich with candied yams, my friend had the BBQ ribs and our other friend had the jerked chicken. I could have just eaten a huge bowl of the candied yams..wow. And my friend's cole slaw was... More
