I am a recent visitor to the Philadelphia area thought I would try a little soul food. Ordered the smothered pork chops and rice with gravy, bad decision. I work for the USDA food inspection services and I was served tough pork chops with extremely salty gravy and boiled rice. Before I could notify management the bar tender had already removed my uneaten plate. If anyone decides to eat here I recommend a vegetable plate and check your blood pressure upon leaving

I had a party there feb 11, 2011 and at first I thought it was all falling apart with the wait of another large group but the staff was very pleasent they kept me and my 30 guest very comfortable and at the end of the night everyone had a blast even the staff the food was excellent and if they didnt have something the chef came out to apologize about it and made up for it! I even met Kevin and he is a wounderful gentalmen we had so much fun my sister TeNeil left out signing it was so beautiful something i will never forget thank you Ms.Tootsie's! I will be back in Sept 2012 with a very large group!

We will never go back. Not only did we wait for 30 minutes in an unair-conditioned room while only 3 tables were occupied on the main floor, we were told we had to wait an additional 15-20 minutes to place our order, even after we were seated, due to a "large party upstairs". Our cornbread came out 15 minutes after we ordered our drinks, the same song was on repeat for what it seemed like – hours… and servers and patrons bumped into our small table continuously. Then just when we thought it couldn't get any worse, our entrees arrived and mine was off and was sent back. The tilapia tasted like week old fish and the crab cake had no flavor at all. Therefore, I ordered an appetizer to-go because my fiancé was obviously finished his entire meal at this point.

After seeing this featured on the food network I had to give it a try. First, they served pillsbury rolls as the bread. Second, I asked for a side of mayo and the waitress said they are out. When potato sald is on their menu and the are out of mayo? Their potato salad is very starchy! The shrimp was overcooked. They try to fools folks out with good atmosphere.

I had a wonderful dining experience at Ms. Tootsie's. The food was tremendous and the service was great. The ambiance is also very nice. You can have a family time or an intimate meal with someone. It's perfect. I had the fried chicken, greens and yams. All was hot, good and full of flavor - the yams were particularly yummy! Hot corn muffins completed the wonderful meal. Thanks Ms. Tootsie's

12 of my family and friends visted Ms. Tootsie's on 4/17/2011 for our 2:30pm reservation. We arrived at 2:15pm and we were greeted at the door and then escorted to a wonderful dining room of red and black leather very bright and roomy. We were greeted by our server Jason (very attentive), who took our drink orders after placing our menus, while the assistant was preparing our "ICE TEA" (5 stars), Jason without being asked brought each guest ice water with lemon, he noticed that we some of the guest sing and were on a tight time schedule since we were singing around the corner at 4:00pm. A number of guest asked for hot water with lemon so Jason brought extra cups in case anyone else in the party wanted a cup (attentive). As the party kept growing another server Rita came up and also started serving and taking orders (very attentive). Orders were coming out on a steady base, before we asked for anything it was there, (extra cornbread etc). Only one side item had to be taken back to be heated up out of 14 platters. This was my first time having the shrimp and grits and they were WONDERFUL! I asked for extra cheese and butter, not only was there extra in my bowl it was also brought to me on the side as well. Everything was wonderful and trust me we all will be back. Standing ovation to Jason and Rita!
