Samantha's Southern Cuisine

Yessss! You must try the chitlin stuffed rutubaga, it is fierce. Others in my party had the grilled cow's tongue, pan-seared goat's brain, and the surprisingly succulent "Rocky Mountain Oysters" over braised cabbage. All dishes are paired well, and the aromas of the place make you feel like Loretta Lynn's best friend (when she was po'). The night I was there, the staff was watching Rupaul's Drag Race, and the staff began to "walk the runway" while serving dishes. If you like "put yo foot in it" food, then run, don't walk, to Samantha's. Holla!

My husband and I had lunch here this past Saturday. I was expecting great quality food based on the previous reviews on this site. My husband got the steak; I got a catfish sandwich. My husband said the steak had no flavor and was the consistency of a rubber band. My catfish sandwich was supposed to be on brioche bread but it just looked like plain white bread to me. I thought the service was great but we will not be returning due to the quality, flavor and presentation of the food.

Only ate here once, but that was enough for me. Although the place looked nice walking in, the space seemed cold and empty. At first we were the only people in the restaurant, yet it still took over 15 minutes for our order to be taken. Waiter/bartender was not very friendly and stood by the bar with arms crossed most of the time. I ordered Chicken and Waffles...chicken was decent but my "Belgian" waffle was basically a untoasted EGGO. My fiance's cheesegrits were top off with some cold pre-grated kraft cheese. Around 1:45pm, someone whom I believed was the owner decided to lock the door, even though there were only 3 couples in restaurant, and continued to pass through dinning area making us feel as though we were uninvited guests. Obviously this did not make us feel very comfortable at all. Very poor first impression, won't eat here again.

My cousin and I had Brunch here today and it was awesome. The Salmon cakes were perfectly seasoned and so were the grits! The silver dollar pancakes were delicious and the blueberry compote that came with it was divine (and I usually hate that stuff). The vanilla french toast was to die for and was made with Brioche, which you don't see to often especially in this part of Brooklyn! I love this place so far and will be back for Brunch for sure, but I'm looking forward to trying dinner as well! Got a seat right away! I don't know why more people don't know about this place, but good for me, because it's not over crowded like all the spots on Dekalb! Shhhh...Don't tell too many people!!

I visited this restaurant at the suggestion of a friend that lived in the neighborhood. I was happy to say that the service was very good. There are a lot of things that I look for in a local restaurant because they rarely prosper. One being the glasses and silverware. They were spotless which is quite important. The atmosphere was very nice but the place is not real big. Now the food.... The lima beans are a treat. Not too many kitchens can produce lima beans that taste like how they should on a Sunday afternoon after church. The macaroni and cheese and collard greens were good too. I didn't have any meat because I am a vegetarian but I did enjoy my experience. I would definitely recommend to a friend and you will definitely enjoy.

My husband and I had dinner here last night for the first time. Glad to say the only bad part of the dining experience was were to sit. Our server came to us right away with water, menu and specials, not use to specials in a soul food restaurant, but we are so glad we gave it shot. Hubby had the Daddy's Home which is the southern fried chicken meal and I had the baby back ribs that was so tender they fell off the bone into my mouth. The fried chicken was nice and crispy, just how we ordered it, we loved the decor and the music accommodated the atmosphere very well, the staff is warm and friendly and we were told the restaurant is family owned and ran by three generations of mother, daughter and grandchildren. Can't wait till Sunday to try the brunch. We will be regular customers.
