“The Best Fried Chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I order take out fried chicken from Po Folks. It is the best! You can get 8 pieces for $7.99 which is light and dark meat. Or you can get all white meat for $9.99. It is perfect for picking up on your way home from work. They have a convenient pickup window on the side of the building. Just call in your order and it's an easy in and out.

“Great whole fried Catfish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Po Folks in my opinion has average food at below or at average prices. However, this is one of the few local places that fry the whole catfish for us Southerners that like to eat it right off the bone using our hands, no utensils. I asked our waitress (#11) for fresh hush puppies, fries, etc., and you know what - I got it. It was all so good and hot that the meal itself, although a little on the greasy side, tasted light and absolutely delicious.

My compliments to our waitress # 11 who made a good meal even better.

“Great home cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This was our first visit to the Po Folks restaurant in Niceville, stopping there at the advice and recommendtion of a friend who makes it a point to visit there every time he goes to the panhandle area.

For the most part, the food was excellent, but the cornbread was dry and tasted like it had been microwaved to warm it back up. They were busy even though it was after the lunchtime rush and service was somewhat slow, but friendly.

Though the food was pretty good, we had a problem with swatting flies away from our table, which made the visit somewhat unpleasant. Nevertheless, we will give the restaurant another visit the next time we are in the area.

“Flounder!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

I've eaten here for years and can only tell you about the fried flounder. It's the only thing I've ever ordered here. Sure, there are other places you can order seafood at, but if you're budget minded and still want good food, this is the place.
