The staff is fantastic and the food is phenomenal. Down home cooking made from the soul. Its about time we had a place to enjoy something other then Burgers, Mexican or Chinese.

We're staying the night in Jacksonville and googled soul food resturant because you can't visit the south without trying ,so we choose here. The atmosphere was pleasant although the line was out the door, the hostess kept us engaged while we waited our turn to join the line. We were greeted with great southern hospitality and thought ok this is... More

Tired of the chain restaurants and always looking for somewhere local I gave this place a try based on reviews. I had fried chicken, turnips, cornbread and tea. It was all good. Then I had a slice of Red Velvet. I had to get n extra piece to take home it was so good. What I loved on the first... More

I like southern home comfort food and if you do too, this is the place to go. They have amazing fried chicken. The service is always wonderful and quick. My family loves this place.

Our family reunion had our closing meal there and not only did everyone enjoy their food, which is a major feat for 35 dinners, half of my family had food to go home and eat later. The staff was accommodating to our large party and made us feel welcome. Items to try, smothered turkey wings, mac and cheese and red... More

We tried Potter's for the first time and all I can say is "Done Right". They give you nice potion. Food is hot and cooked with soul. The workers are very nice and make you want to come back again and again. The food will make you want to slap your mamma twice. Just wish they were closer to my... More

My son's mother-in-law was visiting for the long weekend. She came in from Batesville, AR. My grandson wanted to treat her and the rest of the family to a nice dinner. Having recently moved to Jacksonville, I was unaware of this restaurant. It was a wonderful treat. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the food was delicious. I... More

I have eaten here now a couple of times, and this is quickly becoming a go-to standard for lunch. The fried chicken is tasty, crispy and juicy without being greasy, and the four sides I have had so far (mac n cheese, collared greens, green beans, butter beans) were very good and very authentic. The wait staff and servers go... More

Fellow "Miamian" (from Opalocka) Eugene greets you with a big smile as he explains the dining style: grab a tray, fill it with southern yummy goodness and grab a seat where you wish. Your senses will fill with the aroma of fried, juicy chicken; seasoned to perfection. The 'fall of the bone' Ox-tail was to die for! If you're lucky... More
