Chicken really is amazing as is the macaroni and cheese and shrimp dishes. Just fabulous. Very crowded and no reservations, so get there early and be prepared to wait. Have some fun wines and drinks while you wait. Great for families and sharing.

I'm not expert in southern food but I like Revival a lot. Have tried & enjoyed their chicken (Nashville hot option) & waffles, shrimp & grits, red beans & rice, greens, mac & cheese, hushpuppies. Easy street parking on Nicollet at 43rd, just off 35W.

Ordered the Tennessee Hot 2 piece fried chicken. It was so unbelievably delicious that we ended up ordering and sharing another 2 piece even though we were full.. what a gem! I'm going to be a regular for sure.

About a 45 minute wait on a Friday night but it was well worth it. Despite how busy it was the staff were on top of it and very good at their jobs. The chicken was excellent and the sides were equally good. The cheeseburger...More

No they don't take reservations but you can put your name in and they use an app called no wait and will let you know when you are about to be seated. So you could put your name in and them go to the bar across the street... More
