I had the chicken gumbo, which was good; but the green beans were as good as I've ever had. And the banana pudding, the distension of your stomach is the only thing that makes you stop eating. It's addictingly good! It's well worth a visit.

Ate here for dinner with family while on summer vacation. If you can get past the initial fears from what the exterior of building looks like, once you get inside its very colorful and has a family diner feel. The food was great! We all cleaned our plates and left absolutely STUFFED! Oh yeah, and their famous banana pudding was... More

There were 2 families of 4 that ate with us that day. The food is simple Southern and average. We are not from the South and this is not comfort food for us. So we would say it was alright. The chicken was decent, a little skinny and the sauce was sweet and good. The sides were okay, they lacked... More

Some of the best chicken gumbo I have had. Cheese grits were great. Greens were ok not too rave about. Should have more desired items every day like fried chicken, and Mac and cheese. Only one dessert option tonight 😞.

This was the best food we've eaten this trip. It's like eating Sunday dinner at grandma's house - home cooking at its best! I loved the vegetables the best - collard greens, lima beans, corn pudding, and more. Top it all off with the absolute best peach cobbler or banana pudding, and you'll think you're in Heaven.

We went there after I read the reviews and we would be back again if we had one more day! It's far from the historic district where we were staying, but totally worth the trip! We ordered 5 different entrées: peach chicken, pecan crusted chicken, pot roast, salmon and fried shrimp, everything was delicious! All the sides were to die... More

Wife and I enjoyed the peach glazed BBQ chicken. The veggies were really the big surprise. They were not overcooked and well seasoned. You have to try the lemon collard greens and the sweet potato with pecan butter, YUM... We tried the banana pudding and the coconut custard. The banana pudding lived up to the hype, and I do consider... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Sweet Potato Kitchen. From the moment we walked in the door the staff made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. The menu was good with a range of southern meals to try. I would visit again and can't recommend their coconut custard pie enough.
