    This was one of the best dining experiences in my life. The food surpassed my expectation of a soul food restaurant. The fried chicken, catfish, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes and the collard greens quickly took me back home to my grandmother's house on Sunday after church. The wait staff was great and catered to our every wish and it was truly worth the price. I wish they had a little more space and I anticipate an expansion in the near future as the place was packed.

    Very Good

    The decor in this place is nothing to speak of, and you do have to wait outside. Service was decent and I think the prices are very reasonable. The food was very good. I had the fried chicken wings & waffles, not greasy, very tasty waffles. Ribs and honey chicken were a hit, but the sides were not the best. Fries were soggy. All in all, would recommend and I would go back.

    Quick seating, service, unhurried and OMG damn good food just like down south, while the mac & cheese was mediocre ( macaroni was overcooked) everything else was tasty and a great value a must go in Harlem!

    Just like Mom's!

    I'm a NC native, so I'm used to restaurants that claim they know southern cookin' and always leave thinking that they must think added grease equals southern. Amy Ruth's was a pleasant surprise! The green beans were lightly seasoned to perfection. The chicken livers were scrumptious and the cornbread....lordy me! When they brought out the macaroni and cheese, I was astounded! Not only did it LOOK just like my Mom's, it tasted like Mom's! (And my Mom's mac'n cheese is hard to top.) We went on a week night and there was no wait. We got good service and more than enough to eat. The prices were modest....especially for New York dining. Next time I'm in New York, I'm sure we will go back to Amy Ruth's... maybe more than once!

    Loved It!

    My recent visit to Amy Ruth's was fabulous. My husband and I heard the food was amazing, but we didn't have high expectations. Being from Memphis, TN; we eat good southern soul food all the time, so we figured that Amy Ruth's food couldn't be much different than what we eat ell the time........Boy! were we mistaken. The biscuits and waffles were the best I've ever tasted in my LIFE.....no exaggeration. The waffle just melted in my mouth. I had the chicken & waffle and my husband had the fried whiting both of which were outstanding. Now, a larger place would do wonders for this dining experience. The food is superb, but you can easily get turned off by the wait outside due to the VERY limited space inside the restaurant. Also, our waitress was doing the best job she could, but she was obviously getting flustered due to the number of tables she was responsible for. However, the food came out fast & was definitely worth the wait. I would definitely recommend that you not make a trip to NYC without visiting Amy Ruith's. Pros: FOOD! & hours. Cons: limited space.
