I ate here yesterday and from the beginning i was dissatisfied. I could not substitute the cornbread for just a regular slice of bread...Is the cornbreadt that cheaply made that i have to take it or no bread at all? After i refused the cornbread the staff including Management became upset and my service was the worst i ever received in a NY sitting. I ordered the Kidd Capri with Mac n cheese and steamed okra. He should make them remove his name. I was give 3 miniature salmon patties on a slice of lettuce. The Mac n cheese in a bowl. The steamed hard okra was on the plate with the salmon patties and the patties were soaked with okra juice. A 18 year old young man told me never to eat their and i made the grave mistake of eating there anyway. I woke up this morning and my stomach felt very queezy. I went to the toilet and...well you know how the story goes. This is the first time in my life i have ever been sick from a restaurant. This place is surviving only on its reputation from the past. I looked around and everyone had the fried chicken but me. Anyone can fry chicken you just season it and throw it in a tub of grease. I know the cook and that is the only reason i ate the food. THE COOK ONLY PREPARES THE FOOD. MANAGEMENT KEEPS THE FOOD STORED UNTIL IT IS PURCHASED. THE SALMON WAS OLD AND MY STOMACH HURTS. THE STAFF WAS NASTY TO ME AND MY STOMACH HURTS. ALL I WANTED WAS A SLICE OF PLAIN BREAD AND MY STOMACH HURTS.

Best Mac & Cheese in town. Collard greens were great. Short ribs were excellent. Fried chicken wings were no big deal. Staff was wonderful. Can't wait to come back and try their other options. Go to Sylvia's for the experience but when you are done being a tourist go to Amy Ruth's for simple great food.

If you go to Amy Ruths, you go for only one reason: chicken and waffles. It is simply the best in NYC. Period. If you go for the comfort, ambience or decor, you'll be greatly disappointed. If you go and order something else, it will be catch as catch can and you're on your own.

I have been to Amy Ruth's a number of times, when I'm in the city on the weekends and want some good ole home cooked soul food! Amy Ruth's does not dissapoint! Small dish, but the side orders are good (especially the mac and cheese). There turkey wings, short ribs, spare ribs and the like are all so TENDER and TASTY. Nice atmosphere and nice service, which makes you feel like you're at relative's house for sunday dinner!
