Went to Saturday morning brunch. The best fried chicken we've had in a long time. The country fried steak was descent. The coffee was not so good. Overall, the chicken alone made us glad we went.

I went to this restaurant with one of my accounts. We had a speaker in a private room.
The room was very nice but it was enclosed by only a curtain. It was so noisy it was hard to hear the speaker.
On another note, the food was awesome. You have to try their sangria. The food was great. We had shrimp with grits, fried green tomatoes and hushpuppies for appetizers. For our main course I ad the baby back ribs and shared the KC style "sweet & sticky" ribs.
Everyone at our table loved the food. Good service, we only had the room for 2 hours so we were rushed. The atmosphere was great.

We were in the mood for some good food without a lot of fuss. Neely's was an excellent choice. We sat in the bar area and enjoyed some of their tasty signature cocktails before ordering dinner while watching football games on their big screen TVs. We started our meal with fried green tomatoes and fried pickles. Delicious! Both of us enjoyed our pulled pork and brisket meals. The sauces are left on the tables so you can enjoy trying every one of the three. The cornbread, mashed sweet potatoes with pecan butter and collard greens were tasty side dishes to the meats. Portions are generous. Service was excellent and our seats at our table were comfortable.

This casual place is always busy, always loud, and always just good enough for a pig out. The food is OK, not spectacular, but the atmosphere is so upbeat and energizing that it makes for a happy meal.

This is a pretty solid restaurant. If I had the option I would give it a 3.5 star (circle) rating. All-in-all the food is pretty good but I can't say it's amazing. The atmosphere is good if you are looking for a loud bar style environment. If you are looking for a quiet dinner I'd head somewhere else.

Anyways, the food is served quickly but that's most likely because most of it is already precooked. The serving sizes are ok but nothing to brag about either.

The few times I have been here the service has been pretty good, though I have heard some people have had bad experiences.
