If you want to try some real southern food, this is the place for you. There is not only fried chicken but baked chicken that is full of flavor and juiciness! My husband likes the ox tails which come with a side of yellow rice. The vegetable sides are typically southern and seasoned with bacon. Cornbread rounds out your meal... More

My family and I visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and the food is plentiful and delicious! Some of us had Fried Chicken and others had Fried Basa Fish. They we're both excellent! The veggies were wonderful and the corn bread is moist and delicious! I highly recommend visiting here!

Anytime I'm passing through Jacksonville, I make it a point to stop at one of the Potter's House locations. You will not be disappointed! The best soul food and reasonable prices.

I've eaten here many times, and every time has been a hit. The food is always fresh, and the staff is very nice. The menu changes day to day so call ahead if you want something specific.

Second trip and we were equally impressed! I had the fried pork chop dinner with rice, field peas and broccoli. My wife had the fried chicken, carrots and Mac-n-cheese. My daughter had the herb roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and Mac-n-cheese. My wife and I shared a carrot cake for dessert. Everything was well prepared and delicious! Best meal in Jacksonville...

Absolutely delicious fresh home style cooking. The serving staff is friendly and the portions are huge! Well worth the money but be prepared to wait because this place is ALWAYS busy.

We were greeted and welcomed with open arms as we walked in the door. Our host gave us a bit of history of the restaurant. The buffet line was explained and recommendations were given. Awesome food and definately great service. Suggest making this one of your stops to experience the awesome hospitality. What a great experience from beginning to end.
