Great soul food fix!

Any and everything you can think of, they have it! I ordered two dinners - baked chicken and oxtails (sides for both were greens and mac'n'cheese). The cashier was not the friendliest, BUT the manager and folks preparing the orders were some of the NICEST people!!! It's nice to this restaurant on... read more

Soul food that makes you happy! Cafeteria style which means you don't have to wait in line long and the fish is made to order.

I was in Jacksonville, Florida for four days and ate here three of the days. The only reason we did not eat here on the fourth day is that they were not open. I usually do not like waiting in line nor do I enjoy cafeteria style. However, I did both at the Potter’s House and will do it again... More

The general premise is you can have one main entrée and two sides. This is great as the whole combination is enough to fill a person. However the whole thing costs at least $10 for each of these combinations. As for the portion size and the taste: the portion size is adequate (any smaller and the price wouldn't be worth... More

I have been here many times and the quality remains consistently good. The lines can be long sometimes, but they move fast and the food is worth it. They also have a great assortment of good home cooked entrees and veggies. I have yet to leave hungry or anything but satisfied!

Food and staff are great. Wish it was more buffet style than cafeteria style; however you do have options to order if you do not want the special of the day.

My husband and I came to Jacksonville for the weekend. I found this restaurant online. It is the best soul food. It was so good, we came back the next day. The collards must have been cooked by somebody's grandmother. Delicious!!!!

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 this wonderful soul... 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!
