Service was super friendly and attentive. With food allergies, they went out of their way to make sure I ordered a safe choice and didn't feel like a pain about it at all.

I have never been a huge fan of catfish but seeing they had catfish fingers, we decided to try them. The breading was very light and the fish was fried to perfection!!

The food was quite delicious and reasonably priced. I ordered the Harlem Burrito and it filled me up. The country corn side and the cornbread were both delicious as well.

It is not worth sitting down and eating this stuff they call food! i would not consider this food to be anything close to "soul-food". It is just food. I have been with friends about 10 times in total and 9 times out of the 10, the service has always been bad for different reasons. The lobby is non-existent. You just wait in some chairs in the front of the restaurant and just watch the people eat until they are through with their lunch/dinner. There is nothing original or special about their food. This place has had years to improve on the menu, but it never gets better. The fried chicken and greens are bland, the mac and cheese taste pasty. I did have the steak once and it was really good, but I had to send it back the first time because they over-cooked it (not to my specifications). Basically, this is a bad attempt at adding flare to down home, southern cooking and then add on poor service with a very-tight dinning area. Save your money and time.

I have been to Beans And Cornbread at least a dozen times, because I can't find better soul-food. The service is pleasing complete with an open door welcome and a friendly staff. I usually order the salmon patties, and the taste is new and slightly gourmet. They also have a real nice lunch menu, they have earned an A+ in my class.

I must say the food is on the high side of calories, if you're weight concious. But if you want true flavor, and good taste, this is the place!!! I can only compare this to my OWN cooking!! Some of the treats are very tasty! But if you eat all you're served, better be prepared to work it off!! One bad fault: NO LOW CARB MEALS!!!

WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL WITH THIS PLACE??? TOO MANY PEOPLE JUMPING ON THE BAND-WAGON JUST TO BE IN THE "IN" CROWD. WHAT A DEAL: FOOD TOOO SALTY/CHALKY/DISGUSTING, LITTLE CARE FOR PORTION CONSISTENCY, NOT WORTH THE PRICE. A HEARTATTACK IN THE MAKING....IF NOT FROM THE FOOD THEN FROM THE PRICE.
