3 friends and i just had a great dinner at miss mamie's - i can't explain the dissapointment some reviewers had below. we had the sampler platters which gave us a nice portion of several items - fried chicken (nothing less than excellent. as good as the best fried chicken i've had in the south - and i've had my share of it!); short ribs (terrific); spare ribs (vg); shrimp, catfish, mac and cheese, greens - everything was sooo good. and the waiter was so friendly and sweet. we will definitely return. it's a smallish restaurant. well worth the visit - highly recommended. and very reasonable for what you get.

I went for the first time last night to Spoonbread after having passed it on the #4 bus for years on my commute home. I had heard from a friend it had great food. I was up for some really good fried chicken and this sounded like the place. Unfortunately: not. The restaurant is small and charming. The young lady who waited on me was friendly and polite. However, the food I purchased was beneath mediocre and overpriced for what I got. Was this an off night?? Perhaps. I hope so. The fried chicken pieces were tiny, tiny and dry, dry, dry. The breast portion was like sawdust. The coating was more like oatmeal than fried chicken batter. Based on this experience I would never recommend this restaurant. I wrestled with myself about submitting a review. I really, really want this place to continue. I am writing only because sometimes a negative feedback can help put things on a better course.

The food was great and as someone who is well versed in Soul Food it is not common to find some real Southern cooking above the Mason Dixon. The atmosphere and service blended together in this wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Definitely will be returning and taking family and friends with me!

I ordered the other day and the greens were bland and I'm n love with black eyed peas but theirs are bland and hard! Over all not impressed! The red velvet cake is great!!

I've had collard greens before, but it's always been overly salty/sweet. This was just right. The fried chicken was also nicely seasoned, and not greasy at all. Better than Rack and Soul, and better than Syvia's. And, they give you a nice drumstick and breast. Portions are great value. Service was great. When I mentioned to the waitress that it was the best collard greens, she gave me a container to take home, for free!

I'm not sure what other people are referring to when they talk about lousy service. I've been here 3 times and never had an issue. The food is delicious from the lemon butter trout to the collard greens. And perfect sweet tea! The prices are reasonable for the delicious and huge portions. I am always satisfied with my experience here.

I can't agree to the previous ratings. Have been at Miss Mamie's for dine in yesterday. The waitress was very friendly but not intrusive (like at many other locations). The food came real fast and portions had an enjoyable size. And it was really YUMMY!!! I will come back...
