    Great place doing a modern take on Southern classics. Had the fried chicken and waffle, mac & cheese (to die for) and the chicken gravy + biscuits topped with poached eggs. They also play great music.

    Mac n cheese is a must. The hush puppies were delicious. Fried chicken was hot and juicy with a crisp skin. The bacon & cheddar waffle wasn’t too strong, the texture was light with a crisp outside.

    The fried chicken + bacon and cheddar waffles, with their 3 choices of butter, are incredible. Pies N Thighs, you're still my main squeeze. But this place is my chicken on the side.

    Great brunch spot! Short wait with text/app notifications re: spot in line. Accommodated my request for seat w/back support. Vegetarian fried "chicken" and waffles were AWESOME! Service was great too.

    Get the cornbread, mac & cheese with breadcrumbs, fried chicken & waffles with cheddar and bacon. Try their housemade butters too. You mightn't be able to walk afterwards but it's well worth it.

    The best chicken and waffle I've ever eaten in NYC so far. The fried chicken is perfectly crispy and the waffle is melting in mouth. Also the salad with bacon is so great.

    Oh my GAD! When I die, this is where I wanna go. The butter was so good I took some home. Yes, I took butter home. Chicken and dried cherry waffles and hip hop too - Whaaaat?!?! Go here. Right away.

    A very hip joint and laid back fun atmosphere. The quality and variety of the waffles and the variations of chicken go unmatched. Mix that with great drinks and you can't go wrong.

    Amazing fried chicken and all food spot... came for brunch - had so many food choices, plus great drinks (lemonade with ANY LIQUOR). Mac n Cheese was not as melted cheesy as expected, but still great

    If you looking for the best chicken and waffles spot, you must visit this location. In addition if you have Michael as your host, then you get hit with double whammy with excellent customer service

    Great big portions. The service was also impeccable - even sitting in a community table you get attentive service. Go for brunch. Sample the butters! Chix and waffles for the win!

    Fried chicken & bacon cheddar waffles? Yes please. Crack jar for dessert? Oh my. And don't even get me started on the purple drank cocktail. Service was tops. Look out Pies & Thighs...

    Laid back spot. Had chicken and waffles. Enjoyable...but the mac-n-cheese was off the hook!!! Wouldn't make a trip to go back, but check it out if in the neighborhood. (avoid the Tiger Woods cocktail)

    One of the best chicken and waffles I've ever had in NYC! I'd say it almost as good as brown sugar in Oakland!? The chicken is crispy yet tender and juicy, the waffle is a soft waffle. Enjoy!

    Everything is good here, even the music, my wife and I like coming near closing time, and the vibe was still great there, towards the end they played a banging Marvin Gaye playlist...JUST AMAZING!!!!!

    Weekday brunch M-F 11am-4pm, free beer or soda w/ chicken & waffle or sandwich order. I got the chicken sandwich w/ slaw on it and a heap of arugula salad and Arnold Palmer soda $12. Good deal.

    Amazing food and service. Best kale salad I've ever had! If you want to stray from the yummy chicken & waffles, try the Arctic char or the pork tenderloin. I love the "Purple Drank" cocktail!

    Unique menu, my favourite meal in new york. Perfect waffles, crunchy fried chicken and loads of other brunch options. Must visit! Try the dried cherry waffle.

    The Sweet Chick fried chicken and waffles was outstanding. Good portion size. Get some starters for the table. Also, the Tiger Tiger Woods Y’all (cocktail) was delicious

    Absolutely in love with this place! Great fried chicken & waffles, but my favorite are the duck sloppy joe sliders! Small bar but really solid drinks, especially the chocolate old fashioned.

    The shrimp & cheese grits are out of this world! My taste buds dances from the first to the last bite. The presentation was wonderful! Food should always taste like a flavor explosion!!!

    Fried chicken and waffles are incredible. You can order all-white meat. Mac n cheese is slamming. Staff is good. No reservations and probably a wait, but they text you!

    Light and sweet waffles paired with juicy flavorful chicken with a nice crust. I do like how despite their staple dish, they make good salads and vegetable dishes.

    Chicken and waffles (of the bacon and cheddar variety) are amazing. Pulled pork sliders are also delicious. In fact, I've never had anything here that WASN'T delicious.

    #FabuLIST #DubiDO duck slides to start and of course the chicken and bacon/cheddar waffles. Also comes with an amazing syrup and 3 butters. Yum!! Great music and vibe but expect a loud atmosphere.

    The shrimp and grits was heavenly. Divine. A religious experience. Transcendental. Stop what you're doing and eat it. Just go.

    Sweet Chick offers traditional southern food like chicken & waffles, ribs & grits, with vege meat options too. Sweet Chick’s late hours are perfect for that after party snack. Read more

    Chicken & waffles are delicious! The Christopher Wallace cocktail knocked me out, very nice but strong. Try not to go between 4pm-6pm: the 'in between' menu doesn't have as many options as the rest.

    Chicken and waffles were delicious but the fried chicken were a little dry for me. Order shrimp and grits. Hip atmosphere.

    Chicken and waffles is a must. Cheddar bacon waffle. Also order a side of mac and cheese. I'm not a fan of their drinks tho

    Took some time for food to get there. Love the shoe string fries with the pulled pork sandwich. Plus, any chicken&waffle or sandwich comes with free beer! Charged 20% tip, warn you!

    House brine pork chops with green peppercorns and young cauliflower. Moist and melts in your mouth. Skip the donut ice cream sandwich. Interesting flavor combo, in a bad way. No hot coffee? Strange.

    Tried both real and veggie chicken & waffles and I have to say: Vegetarian chicken & waffles with hot sauce and maple syrup is a tasty alternative!

    Alternate between chicken & waffles (comes with three different butters) and shrimp & grits. Wash it down with peach iced tea (vodka). And get a cookie.

    Don’t sleep on the Cod Fish Sandwiches. Both regular and Nashville Hot are good-to-go with some Fries + Arnold Palmers.

    Waffles are delicious! Really good quality food overall. Worth the wait because they jot down your number and call you when there's a table. Just hit up the dive bar next door while you wait

    Happiest belly in a long time after eating the chicken + waffles along with a terrific turkey leg special. Perfect mac 'n cheese, going to be hard to beat.

    I had some serious doubts about the fried chicken and waffle combo, but it is FREAKING AWESOME!!!!! I had the pecan waffles and hot honey added on.

    Nashville hot chicken is killer with bold spice and ultra crunch coating. The waffle that with it was the perfect balance to the spicy.
