I recently moved to Jacksonville, and I had a craving for soul food that did not require me to spend time in my own kitchen. I happen to be on the southside of Jacksonville when I did my google search for soul food eateries and waaalaaaa.... Potters House was within 15 minutes. When I got there it was not what... More

The food is served cafeteria style, which makes service pretty fast, which is a good thing because the lines can be long. I like the smothered Pork Chops. The Fried Chicken is really good and so are the Fried Shrimp. I don't care for Oxtails, but theirs must be really good because so many people order them. The real winner... More

One of the best soul food restuartants I've been too. So much to choose from and everything was good. The restuarant was clean and the service/waitress was great. Will definately go back and tell others about it.

We moved near this restaurant and decide to give it a try based on a friend's recommendation. We chose to visit on a Sunday night, which we found was a busy time to go. Line management was actually quite impressive, so we didn't wait very long. Prices are reasonable. I rated it mid-range because it's definitely not as cheap as... More

The food is so good and the service is A++ . The bbq ribs and oxtail rice are the real deal. Very affordable and also the smothered pork chops are excellent as well.
