Great Comfort Food

We were invited to lunch at this dive comfort food hang. I had a turkey sandwich while my wife had the beastly pimento cheese BLT. Both served with home cut chips. Both sandwiches were sumptuous with generous and fresh ingredients. As mentioned, the BLT could be easily split with what seemed... read more

I had heard good things about Comfort so I came for dinner a few months ago, but was really disappointed. I thought I may have just hit an off night, so I came here with friends for brunch. As a vegetarian there was next to nothing on the menu I could eat, which was a let-down, but my rating is... More

Nicely done and fairly priced. Felt very local. In addition to meat dishes, great vegetarian options.

We had high expectations and hopefully we just hit a bad night. We were on time for our reservation and were seated over 30 minutes later. One of my sides was cold (very cold, not just lukewarm), which they did replace without argument. My credit card was run in error by about $30, which they also fixed. Granted they were... More

Worst restaurant ever -- served over -cooked vegetables which certainly were left over from the day before -- (Scalloped potatoes, black-eye peas, sweet potato soufflé and cheese grits) -- may have been decent at one time, not anymore --two of our group had fish which they enjoyed -- but bill for four was $111.00 -- did I mention veggie plate...

While we are sad there's no longer brunch, the many times we have had dinner at Comfort it's never disappointed. Not pretentious like other places in town with similar caliber food.

I had the meatloaf with mushroom gravy and a side scalloped potatoes and broccoli . Mom had the catfish, nicely... More

Finally, comfort takes reservations! The food and atmosphere are both great. Fun area of town with lot of restaurants and bars in several blocks of broad street.

The taste of the food is excellent. The staff are friendly and the restaurant is clean. The portions are smaller than what you may be accustomed to paying for comfort food, but the taste makes up for it.

Excellent food in a neat, trendy, art-filled neighborhood. The food selections were great, home-style cooking--meatloaf, turkey, etc. Everything I had was wonderful--a turkey and swiss sandwich on wheat toast with a cranberry sauce and dijon mustard dressing, served with a generous portion of homemade chips. Wonderful lunch!
