Filled my soul

My first time here won't be my last. we were greeted in a most welcoming way and introduced to a food experience that I will never forget. Best fried chicken I have ever had, the collards were superb and the sweet corn was by far the sweetest I've ever had. If you are in Jacksonville don't miss... read more

The quality of food was amazing. The customer service was fantastic, the employees went above and beyond to offer us extra plates, napkins and drinks. Even though it was a buffet they checked on our table to make sure we had what we needed. I would recommend their smothered pork chops and their mac and cheese, was tasty!

You'll want to check the kitchen to see if your grandma is back the cooking. This is the home cooking place where everyone can find something good to eat. Their fried chicken is moist, the fried pork chops have some spice, the herb chicken is flavorful and the shrimp was good but not my favorite. The mac n cheese and... More

The food was very good, There were many choices, making it difficult to decide on what to get. The service was pretty good, not great. The place seems to be popular and very busy. We enjoyed what we got, although my chicken was a bit dry. The prices just did not equal what we got. We paid $40 for two... More

I moved to the area 5 months ago. If you read my other reviews, you'll find they are varied.... I like food! But I especially like what's now called "comfort food" ... and soul food is definitely comfort food. The problem with some people is they have pre-determined notions about soul food and the places where it can be found.... More

Had the fried gizzards/livers, which were cooked to order. The Livers were actually much better...nice and crispy, not dry. The sides were decent, had the mash potatoes and cabbage. Also had the rice with ox tails which was very tasty. Service was good. Waiters came to check on you for refills.

I'm a southern girl. So ofcourse I live southern cooking. My usual here is the smothered porked chops over yellow rice- Mac and cheese and cabbage as my sides! Yummy in my tummy! Everything always taste so fresh! If you're thinking of dessert, try the chocolate cake! ***If frequenting on a Sunday, you might want to wait until the church... More

We have eaten here several times. Their macaroni and cheese is excellent. All of the veggies are seasoned well. The fried shrimp is some of the best you will find! This is a cafeteria style restaurant. However, when you order the shrimp, it is cooked and brought to you table! My husband likes their chicken and some of our friends... More

Loved this place. As a Southern boy who's been away from home a little too long Potter's really hits the spot. It reminds me of the food my grandma made growing up: made with a lot of love and saturated fat. They really hit the highlight reel of Southern classics with entrees including fried chicken, oxtails, and smothered pork chops.... More
