Miss Maude's Spoonbread Too

Total dissatisfaction! My dad and I ordered the whiting dinner that included two sides (we chose mac and cheese and collard greens) at $18/plate. The presentation was horrible, as the whiting was cut into straggly strips, and the mac and cheese crusted with a dry cheese "topping". The taste was very bland, the collard greens lacked flavor and the macaroni and cheese was cold and "cheese less". The proportions were lunch-time appropriate, but the price not so much. Soft drinks were between $4-$5. Our server was great! Very attentive and kind, although we were the only customers to wait on at the time lol. The atmosphere was welcoming as well as clean and spacious. Maude's Spoonbread truly disappointed me.

Love Southern Soul Food and everything at the restaurant didn't disappoint. Warm corn bread, delicious fried chicken, sweet candied yams, great mac 'n cheese were all delicious. A little disappointed that more than a couple of things on the menu weren't available, but we'll have to go back and try them too. Real comfort food for anybody who loves rich and sweet Southern Soul Food.

Ill keep it short - I go to this restaurant on occasion because it is so far from me. When i do go, i love it, each time. It's very small and yes very homey, kinda like home =). I am always serviced in good time and the food never takes to long (to cook!!). Also the food is AWESOME, I am looking for something to compare it to but it easily knocks out the box all the close by restaurants on this level (you know that actually cook and not heat up stuff).

I desperately wanted some soul food so bad one evening and decided to venture to Spoonbreads on Lenox. I know that years ago I had tried their food but I could not remember why I never went back. Well now I know. It was on a early evening on a Friday and they had very few customers. I proceeded to the take out counter where I was ignored for about ten minutes. Finally the rude hostess decided to entertain me by taking my order but not paying attention to what I was saying. So I placed my order and when I checked the receipt I realized that she had failed to add additional items that I had requested. So I went back to the counter too let her know and that's when the hostess became even worse. Finally my order was ready and she gave me the additional sides at no charge. I spent over twenty dollars on disappoint food. Even the iced tea was horrible. Spoonbreads will never have to worry about my business again. Bad food and even worse service for over priced meals.

I ordered BBQ Chicken with mac and cheese and candied yams. The plate was a mess, just pieces of chicken smothered in BBQ sauce, the mac and cheese lacked salt and the candied yams were just incredibly sweet, so the tatses were not really balanced. The waitress was ok, but I was the only one there.... The atmosphere was homey and personal, but I won't go back.

Despite the service my friend and I received during my first visit the food was delicious enough to lure me back 2 more times. The fried chicken, mac & cheese, cornbread dressing, and the greens are the best i've had in NYC. However, the service was consistently poor with each visit... very poor. The third time I visited the location on 110 and the service was even worse. I recommend take-out.

I was in the area on 1/23/08 and wanted to try out this restaurant since I had read the reviews in different magazines. The place is quaint,small,and clean. My husband and I both had the lunch specials which was 2 pieces of fried chicken w/one side. I got the mac and cheese(which was delicious!!!) and my husband got the fresh hand cut fries. We were given complimentary cornbread that was very good. The fried chicken was a bit on the small side, but again it was lunch and it was very tasty and had a lil kick to it and it was moist too and crunchy and crispy on the outside. For take out I got a piece of red velvet cake. Which I had half already and it was good also. The service was good. the waitress was attentive and quick. I would definitely go back there for lunch or dinner. The prices were reasonable. The lunch specials were about $8 and the dinner entrees are about $12-16.
