Good southern food, generous portions and reasonable prices. Cafeteria style service with just 'ok' facilities.

Good old Southern home cooking! Hard to beat - everything I have had is good. Always a good crowd for lunch.

I have dined at both Potter's House restaurants and take visiting family there as well. The fried chicken is terrific and we all enjoy selecting our sides as we move down the buffet line. Hummingbird cake (when they offer it) is also a favorite. Reasonably priced, excellent food - works well for people of all ages.

My family and I visited the Jacksonville area and decided to try Potter's House. Foods that were loved by members of my family: collard greens, smothered pork chops, fries, corn bread and sweet tea. Staff was friendly and very attentive. Definitely a restaurant where you can bring kids.

I visited this restaurant with family, on my last visit to Jacksonville. The food there was so delicious! I've been to many soul food restaurants and this place is one of the best. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant again!!!

You cannot come to the south without stopping by a soul food spot. When in Jacksonville, you MUST get here! Everything was delicious, even the water! The portions were GENEROUS; the service was excellent and I tried hard not to go to sleep after we left. The live music was an added bonus.

The Potter's House Soul Food Bistro was busy on Sunday but the wait was well worth it. The food was great and well seasoned - smothered turkey wing, smothered pork chops, and sides. The gravy on the smothered meat was really good and the Mac & Cheese was one of my favorite sides. Even though it was crowded the staff... More

White folk, brown folk, yellow folks. All sorts of folks. Christian based ministries and it shows. Staff was great. Four of us ate for $59. We were stuffed! The portions... More

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
