I went with a large group and discovered the service was impeccable! The Mac and Cheese with the fried chicken and fried whiting were delicious!! Topped off with the Banana Pudding, our meal was great
Seated in 15 minutes and served in about the same amount of time. Amazing for such a popular spot. First time? Try the Sharpton. Sweet tea is delicious. Corn bread amazing. Can't wait to go back.
Cornbread is TO DIE FOR. Regular fried chicken & waffle was spectacular. Mashed potatoes and corn were delicious too. Sweet tea was perfectly sweet. Mac and cheese was actually a little disappointing!
After all the hype and press about this place, it was somewhat of a disappointment bland food very viny and stemy greens but the catfish was excellent and the mac & cheese was decent
Best house of chicken & waffles in the city (this is an urban take on southern soul food that originated in Harlem, where fried chicken, waffles, syrup, and hot sauce combine with awesome results).
Chicken & Waffles is a Harlem specialty. Invented nearby. These folks will lead you to believe that they created it. Not true. Large portions for the church and family set. Sundays require patience.
Went home a happy camper after trying their delicious fried chicken. I was expecting a little more for the price, but the quality is there and the two sides that come with your order are huge!
Chicken was juicy and the waffle was amazing. Only criticism: the chicken skin was amazingly crunchy, I just wish it was a little more seasoned.
Brought an out of town friend here for some genuine soul food. Didn't disappoint! Service is friendly, the chicken sandwich I got was a little dry. Get the fried okra, it's amazing.
Try the Baked Macaroni & Cheese - This is really incredible. My favorite type of Mac and cheese ever - if you don't like the overly cheesy, runny kind, than you must try this.
The best chicken and waffles I ever had. The decor is relaxing. The music is on point (90's R&B). The macaroni and cheese was also good. The service is friendly.
Excellent and super friendly service. Smothered chicken and waffles are fantastic! Candied sweets are good. Sweet tea a bit too sweet but all in all a great eating experience.
Go for the fried catfish and fried okra-BEST CHOICE EVER, SO TASTY!! also great mac n cheese, mash n cornbread. Candied yams n Reggie's honey chicken both overly sweet.
Chicken and waffles are the go to here, but don't forget to order collard greens and Mac & Cheese. You will be in heaven.
The original supper clubs that invented chicken & waffles are no longer around, but Amy Ruth's is definitely the best example of Harlem style C&W in modern times.
I got the Barack Obama....smothered chicken, collard greens and mac n cheese. It was delicious! I also recommend the Half & Half (half lemonade + half iced tea)
Despite being busy, service was friendly. Sides and drinks on the sweet side but good. You will definitely get the "itis"! Got the Obama (bbq) pretty good.
Great service. The food came out fast. The smothered fried chicken, collards, with mac&cheese was great. What......a soul food restaurant can serve this up in Harlem....WHOA!!!???
Order the waffles, yams called greens is outstanding ..the service is friendly and personable the wait staff had been they forever so u will soon have your favorite
Catfish and Waffles. I know it sounds weird but its awesome. A little pricy but def worth trying. Hot sauce, syrup, catfish, and waffle...all in one bite!
Chicken and waffles with gravy!! As a Brit I'd heard about this place and it was better than I'd imagined with friendly staff. The portions are huge but great
the best time to go would be on a weeknight (mon-thurs) around 9pm. otherwise be prepared to wait in line for hours! and yes, the food is THAT good.
Breakfast menu only before 11:30am. The Tommy Tomitas (fried wings & waffles) is good. Friendly service too :)
The food was good for what it was. Everything seemed to have too much sugar in it. From the cornbread to the Mac and cheese. -A Mississippi boy
Best waffles I've ever had and I've been to Roscoes in LA sides and chicken are great as well! Home made syrup is the icing on the cake!!
Tourist trap but the food is still solid. Waffles, fried shrimp and mac and cheese are so good. Plus you can order kool aid with your meal!
You can't go wrong with their signature dish of chicken and waffles. My bf had the Obama dish and hated it. Greens and sweet potatoes were not good.
The smothered chicken and waffles (aka Rev. Al Sharpton) was by far the best chicken and waffles I've ever had!
Fried chicken wings are on point! Love the fried catfish, too. Collards and the fried okra are the two best sides. All fried everything!
I used to eat here regularly & would have dreams about the chicken and waffles. When I went today the smothered chicken was not as good as it used to be.
Its not on the menu, but ask for honey-dipped wings and waffles! It will change your life!!! I dream about this meal when I am not in New York!!!
For authentic soul food, look no further than Amy Ruth's in Harlem. Everything on the menu is good but its the chicken and waffles that we love.
Soul food galore! Sounds odd, but it’s so delicious, but try The Rev. Al Sharpton – Chicken & Waffles (Fried or Smothered…go for Fried!)
If you go on a Wednesday try the ox tail dish. Corn bread is amazing as well. And you can never go wrong with the chicken and waffles.
Try the Fishermans platter, catfish, fried shrimp & a crab cake. The crake cake was exceptional. The food was done perfectly
Chicken and waffles were amazing. Candied yams were from a can and poorly doctored to taste like the real thing. Cornbread was delicious.
mashed sweet potatoes are good, but the "Guy Woods And Shay Barnett" is not as good as i thought, lot of pecans, but not a lot of bananas pieces
Yummmm. Can't go wrong with the smothered chicken and waffles. Service was super quick;we were in and out in less than an hour.
The food was beyond delicious!!! If you're in the area you must visit and enjoy the food! Yumm-o!
You MUST get the baked catfish! Also really great melt-off-the-bone beef short ribs, meatloaf and of course fried chicken.
If you go there in a group, make sure you understand that they do not separate the bill and they automatically add in the gratuity!!!
Amazing chicken and waffles. This place is always packed on the weekends, I would recommend going early to bypass the churchgoers.
chicken and waffle. hands down the softest waffle ive ever had. better than roscoes in LA by far.
I've took waffle with bacon. I wasn't a great fan of the mix of the taste. By the way, the waffle was excellent
Collards, cornbread, mac 'n' cheese—you can't go wrong with any of this Harlem institution's soul food offerings.
Try the Baked Mac & Cheese - The #best Mac n cheese that I have ever had. It was cheesy, soft but not too salty.
Been here twice and ordered the sautéed shrimp. Sauce is very flavorful. Good music.
