The restaurant has white table clothes, the waitstaff are very friendly and helpful. The chicken is good, but the waffles are amazing! Try their traditional fried chicken and waffles. They have a very good selection of starters and mains to choose from and the prices...More

Very disappointed to share that soul flavors closed earlier this month. My understanding is that they never really recuperated from the financial damage caused by Hurricane Sandy...

Had a great meal, ribs were excellent, chicken stew great, everybody liked the mashed sweet potatoes. Small restaurant, great staff and BYOB so your bill is reasonable; can't beat that.

This is a great little place! The cornbread is the best I ever had. Biscuits were yummy too. I had ox tails, my husband had the pork ribs. Both were excellent. We also had the mac and cheese, collard greens, sauteed spinach and black eyed...More

Fried Buttermilk chicken on top of perfect waffles with a cream maple reduction...heaven! The biscuits and corn bread were prefection. The sides of mac and cheese (ok, but I am not a fan usually of it), but LOVED the okara which had a smoky flaor...More
