We drove over from Orlando JUST for the fried chicken and ended up with full bellies and to go boxes because we ordered more than the chicken! Everything was fresh and really tasty. A lot of guests ordered the carrot souffle for a side AND...dessert.More

This restaurant is simply awful. Not a clean place, and the so-called soul food is oversalted and just plain awful. I would fire the cook.

I have been a cook since I was 16(42 now). I have made almost every southern dish known to man. I have even added my own flair to many classics. Loyd's blew every thing I have ever made away. The green beans exploded with flavor...as did the mash potatoes(seriously these sides were mind blowing) The meatloaf was divine and for that alone I could have rolled over and died and been happy. The porkchop a classic fried delight with a generous amount of mushroom gravy on top of it that was amazing. I am so glad they are available via doordash and if you have not tried you should. Loyd's is a gift to the people of Titusville, one we do not deserve but are most grateful for. Thank you Loyd'sMore

Incredible food. Love this place. Wish they served beer or wine with the meal. The fried okra is most recommended!

If anyone watches the program Restaurant Impossible with Robert Irvine on the Food Network you have seen the episodes where this restaurant was converted from a failing enterprise to a thriving restaurant. The one item Robert did not change was the Southern Fried Chicken. I...have to admit that was a great call as it is one of the best I have tried. The sides match up well with the chicken. I would recommend stopping in sometime for either a side down meal or takeout as it is worth it.More

We have dined at ‘Loyd Have Mercy’ 3 times. My wife loves the fried green tomatoes and I love the chicken. There are a lot of other soul food options. The portions are large and a great value for the money. We had dined there...before ‘Restaurant Impossible’ came. The new dining area is great and the food flew out of the kitchen. We live in Columbia, SC and there are only two restaurants we always go to when we are there. Loyd have mercy and Dixie Crossroads. Anyone who visits Titusville to see a space launch or any other reason should plan to dine at this excellent restaurant!More

We were out of town visiting and came across Loyd Have Mercy! Everything was fantastic! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! My kids kept commenting how nice they were. It was Easter and it felt like we were eating with family. We look forward...to stopping here again when we visit soon!More

I ordered their 3 piece fried chicken dinner with Mac & Cheese, potatoe salad sides.

We seen it on tv and been wanting to try it. Well we finally did. Loved it and will go back AGAIN. Loyd even took time to stop at our table to see if we were enjoying everything. Anna was our server. You couldn’t ask...for better service. Great personable staff. I had the smother pork chops. Yum. I might try the fried chicken next time. I tasted my wife’s meatloaf. It’s going to be hard to pick next time. Guess we will have to keep going back lol. Thank you to Loyd and his staff.More
