We were on Beale St during the parade and needed to eat. Most bars had music, but we wanted to eat away from that. The outside does not entice you in, but the place was pretty full, so gave it a go. So glad we...More

I googled breakfast places on Beale and Miss Polly’s came up first! So glad it did. Small place, wonderful service and amazing food! The chicken and waffles was amazing! They take cash and Visa.

Recommended to us for breakfast so decided to give it a try. It was ok and the ham not pre packed but no hash browns. Good and fast service though.

Had breakfast because it was recommended by out Uber driver. Big mistake. The atmosphere is what you would hope for a down home southern spot, that's the only plus. The food was terrible. Husband had chicken and waffles, both cold. The chicken was ABSOLUTELY some...More
