Used to stand outside and wait hours for a seat when they were small and hadn't bought the building next door yet. Food was worth the wait. With the expansion came prices for food that are below par and are nowhere near their 5 star prices. The original site had a turkey wing mac and cheese and collard green dinner that was to die for. The sides had to come in side bowls, thats how large and delicious the wings were. Now, everything fits on one plate. The greens were salty last time I ate there. The mac and cheese was beyond dry. And the liquid diabetes they serve as "ice tea" is just powder mix with some sugar and a water melon wedge.

Celebrated our daughter's 25th birthday last night at Ms. Tootsie's. We were seated almost immediately once all our guests arrived.The food was excellent as usual (we've been there before) and the server we were blessed with (Bianca) was superb! Thanks for helping us have such a beautiful & fun celebration for our family. Highly recommend Ms. Tootise's & we'll definitely be returning again & again. Great touch with the hosts & hostesses singing Happy Birthday!

I've been to Ms Toosies in the past, and my experience was beautiful. I went back for Mothers Day, and thanks to the staff my day was a disaster. The staff was unorganized and appeared to not know what they were doing. When we arrived we were hit with not only a set menu but it was also $40.95 per person. We did not make other plans and was pretty much stuck. We waited a very long time for our entries. When we were done we waited a even longer time for the bill. Frustrated when the man finally came to collect the $200 plus bill, what do you know we had to wait again for the receipt. I don't mind spending that kind of money for dinner, but I expect good customer service. I will not be back, and will spead the word of my unpleasant experience. I guess if you don't mind waiting, this is certainly the place for you.

The beautifully fried hot, crunchy chicken breast look deceived me. After the crispy skin, the unbrined, dry breast left me devastated. Flavorless!! The yams looked great, but all was tasted was mushy yams, cinnamon

My party and I have enjoyed this establishment each visit. I was took back by the negative reviews from others. We went to the one on south street. We were always pleased and had such a great time with our friends. The staff even took notice to our party the second time we arrived.Staff and management was attentive and i love that! We spent little time disappointed in the barmaid up stairs. lol. one bad apple did not spoil your bunch. I love the catfish. we will return and look to your lovely establishment for other affairs we have in mind. Thanks!! Tootsie pops was popin! Atmosphere is right up my alley.

Doors opened at 6:00, we were 3rd couple in line and waited an hour and a half for a table. Once we ordered our food it was 45 minutes before it came and my first bite was into cold Mac n cheese. The service is slow, food is ok but defiantly not worth the wait.

My first time. Was impressed by decor and atmosphere. Arrived around 5:30 on a Wed. Wasn't crowed at all. Had reserved party of 25 (birthday). Waitress Valencia was GREAT and very knowledgable about the menu. We were on the second floor. I didn't like that the bathroom was unisex (shocked). I ordered a Bahama Mamma, it took over a half hour to arrive.When I finally received it, it was so weak and watered down. As our party was arriving we began ordering. I couldn't believe it took almost an hour for any one to get food. I was one of the first guests and was almost literally the last one to receive my food. Most of the food was not bad at all. I ordered seafood delight. Crab cakes were great but very small. Shrimp was good and flavorful. Collard greens seemed ok too, but I kept thinking I tasted a hint of glory greens but was not sure. Fish was over cooked. Other guest commented that cabbage, turkey wings, chicken breast, chicken wings & salmon salad was good. Mac & cheese didn't do anything for me. Like I said the waitress Valencia was great! They brought out the cake, sang happy birthday, that was great. But, I never heard of any place charging $2 extra to cut the cake (what?) Now The Bill. It was ASTRONOMICAL!!! It was over $700. YES. It took our food so long to arrive we ran over our 2Hrs. They had the nerve to add on an extra $125. which was removed. Over all the atmosphere was nice and the food was pretty good. I enjoyed celebrating my nephew's birthday. As we were leaving I noticed there were about 7 people standing at the door but there were plenty of empty tables. (Go figure). At this point I'm still on the fence as to whether I'd return or not. After reading the reviews, it doesn't help the cause :( Is it worth the price with the small portions or the wait to receive the food? I forgot to mention how cold it was in there I was about to put on my coat.
