We visited this place 3 times during our 5 day stay in Jacksonville. Loved the ribs, the fried chicken and the fish. I ordered the herb baked chicken the first day and the pieces were small. The servers gave me extra pieces because of that. The staff is wonderful and truly want you to have a great dining experience. This... More

This is the place to eat and NOT count calories. There are two locations in JAX; one on the Northside & the other on the Southside. If you don't mind waiting in a longggggg line, you will be totally satisfied. You may want to add a little 'hot sauce', yet you may have a take-home box. Everything is great, from... More

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

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

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
