There are very large portions but the food was a little salty for us. Owners are very nice. I know the condemned the hotel part, not sure if their 'new' location is still open?

Cons: The decor and location may get you. They are located adjacent to a motel. The interior leaves something to be desired. The service was super slow. We were there for 2 hours. It's wasn't too busy when we got there. Pros: The waitress was very friendly. The food was pretty good. The portions are huge. Don't let the prices... More

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!! First time here to take advantage of the Groupon. The food was DELICIOUS no seasoning needed! I got the Tilapia, collards and Mac n Cheese. My husband got the Smothered Pork Chops, and candied yams (They tasted like a sweet potato pie without the crust). If you like TRUE Soul/Southern Food then you MUST give this place a... More

They reopened this May out near Regency Mall. The new location is hard to find but worth it. We went this weekend. The service was slow but friendly and the food was great and you can't beat the prices.

I had the smothered pork chops with rice and gravy, collards and corn muffin. I had the Strawberry Stroble to drink and peach cobbler for dessert. The pork chops were... More

Once inside the place is spacious and nice. Family was here from Maryland and had to take them there.The food was so delicious as always... More

We went to the East Ridge location. I'm torn on this review for a couple of reasons. 1. There was no signage from the street so I almost missed it. I had to call a friend for directions. 2. Although I think it's not affiliated with what used to be the old Regency Inn it's in a hotel where I... More

The restaurant is located just a couple of blocks from the downtown Marriott and convention center. Both the food and the service were terrific the night we ate at Pasture.
