One Sunday after church, I went to Po'Folks with friends. The catfish was sooo good, the following Sunday i returned by myself. I have also desginated Sunday as "Catfish Sunday" because I intend to be a regular every Sunday. Oh, expect a bit of a wait on Sunday if you arrive after 1pm. Because the place is packed and you...

We grabbed lunch here recently while vacationing in the St. Petersburg area. Overall, the service and food were very good. The waiter gave me regular refills on my iced tea and check with us regularly to ensure we had everything we needed. The wife loves southern style cooking and she said her fried chicken livers and other food items were... More

PoFolks serves wonderful traditional style southern food, like fried chicken, greens, fried okra and biscuits. I usually get the chicken with okra, greens or fried cabbage and the parmesan bread stick. The food is very fresh and well-prepared and the prices are really low. My mother [born (1920) and raised in Florida] LOVES this place.

I have eaten here for over 30 years and the food, service and value are always great. I haven't lived in St.Pete for 20 years but when I go back I can always rely on PoFolks for great Southern style cooking.

Saw an ad with a coupon so we went because we used to live to eat there when they had one in Chattanooga. This one is privately owned but the food was good and reasonably priced.

Brought my family here because we were looking for a cheap but decent dinner and this is exactly what we we needed! The food came out quick and the waitress, Amanda, helped a lot with suggestions on what we should try and was overall a friendly young lady. We will definitely be coming back and we know exactly who we... More
