    The pancakes were pretty good and the chicken as well nothing to complain about. The atmosphere left more to be desired but a pretty decent place considering the brunch menu.

    A formidable karaoke song list and cocktail brunches keep this popular watering hole busy all times of day and night.

    This sister has got Soul Gourmet down to a science. Anything with Catfish will have you singing to the rafters with the live band or other entertainment. Come early to avoid door fee. Intense drinks

    For brunch, get the catfish (or you will regret it) and skip the home fries.

    The service is slow, but the food is delicious and you’re sure to have a good time. Try the fried catfish or the BBB Burger! The décor in the bathroom is not suitable for children.

    They feature live performances Neo-soul singers on occasions. This venue captures the historic vibe and soul of Harlem!

    Aside from the inspired soul food (we can't get enough of the zesty Cajun catfish strips), this is the destination for jazz, soul, poetry and media screenings.

    Service truly sucks! There's too many other soul food restaurants to have to deal with it. Go to Amy Ruth's, instead!

    Best Mac and Cheese around. The Mango Chicken is pretty good also. They have Karaoke on certain days during the week also, old school R&B style.
