A friendly neighborhood restaurant with indoor and patio seating. The food was excellent. Good prices and good service. I wish I had this in my neighborhood at home.

I had been meaning to go to this place for a while. It was a girls night out and we wanted to talk and this was the perfect place. The drinks were really good and there were oldies being played on a Jukebox. The waitress was attentive and didn't rush us. We started with the calamari, it was tasty but... More

This is a hidden gem in the Petworth area. The food is very tasty and at a great price. They make their delicious fried chicken to order, so it does take bout 20-30 to prepare, but it is worth the wait. I have always wanted to try other things on the menu, but it is too tasty to give up!... More

I've been coming to the Old Soldier's Home for years and all of our trips off site to eat, I have missed this gem. First off the food was just excellent. The prices were fair and the portions were very generous. I had two fillets of the blackened catfish. The sides are generous in my mind. They have seating inside... More

I read reviews stating how good the fried chicken was. I got 2 orders of nice sized wings (6 total) for $12. They had no taste at all, just plain fried chicken. Ordered 2 sides of greens, they tasted just as plain, just canned collard greens heated up.

Small place near Lincoln's Cottage. Fried chicken is fantastic. Takes 20-30 minutes to cook, but it's freshand hot! The collard greens and cornbread are also outstanding.

My daughter and I chose to eat lunch here after a tour of Lincoln's cottage, a short walk from the gate. It is definitely comfort food. We could have made a meal out of the sides--a great variety. We both ordered sandwiches but added sides of corn bread, macaroni cheese, coleslaw and fried spinach. It was all good, but the... More

A portion of fried chicken is half a chicken and each piece is better than the one before! Two of us had the chicken and decided it was the best ever. All four of us agreed the coleslaw was also outstanding. Incredible breading on the pork chops and fish too! And Shirley couldn't have provided better service. We think this... More
