They serve the kind of food your grandma cooked. Home cooked meals and everyone there is so friendly. Delicious!

Smiling faces and GREAT food! Soul Food Bistro has the BEST "comfort food" in Jacksonville. The thing that I have noticed over my dozen visits is that the staff is so happy. I think the great food is a direct result of the love and kindness shared by the staff. Smiling faces all around. We always find the facility clean... More

Was recommended by the hotel! Did not disappoint! Cafeteria style. We chose the smothered chicken and got peach cobbler for dessert. Plenty of food for left overs the next day!

We have e traveled quite a bit. Anytime we find a soul food place we always give it a try. Usually we find several things that could be better at each place we go. However, Potter's is a completely different experience. The place was clean. The staff was very friendly. The food has great portions. And well let's just say.... More

I make it to the Bistro a couple of times a year as a guilty pleasure and am never disappointed! I love their fried chicken and the peach cobbler even got my Mom's seal of approval (so you know it's good...lol!). When I'm trying to somewhat healthy, I'll get smothered baked chicken. I always leave the place satisfied and wondering... More

OMG I was sure my grandmother cooked the meal. It was just that good comfort food on another level! Nice and clean environment the service was excellent location a bit tricky look for the gas station but if you make it to the traffic light you missed it.

A must place to visit, I give it a 6 out of 5 because the food and pricing was just that good. You've got to visit to understand

All I want to say s just go there. The atmosphere is good. Lines not too long, except Sundays. Prices are moderate. But the ox tails and spaghetti are my favorites. But the sweet potato pie is the best.
