Southern comfort modernized. Sweet tea, lobster mac n' cheese, cabbage slaw and fried chicken, all to die for.

On a whim, my friend & I stopped in at Ms Tootsie Soul Food Cafe. It was one of the BEST choices we made. The service was superb, the food was even better. Looking forward to returning!

Last night I went to Ms. Tootsies with my friends and it definitely was worth going. The food was simply amazing. I had the Creamy Cheesy Mac & Cheese with lobster as one of my sides and the lobster chunks were so tender and tasty it just melted in my mouth. The Seafood Lover's delight was such a huge portion I am looking forward to reheating and having as my lunch today. If you are looking for collard greens with a kick & lots of flavor they have the best. I definitely will be back.

Everytime I go to Ms Tootsie It is a joy. I wanted some smothered pork chops and they did not have any. They were so sorry and gave me somethingelse and a free tea. They just wanted me to be satisfied. Still my favorite restaurant.

I don't know what's happening, perhaps there is change in chef, but my last two dining experiences at Ms. Tootsie's was anything but desirable. I dined there last night with my cousin and ordered three sides, collards, Mac & cheese and yams. The only item I enjoyed was the yams. The greens were painfully salty and the Mac & cheese was very dry. This is the second time I experienced disappointment at this restaurant, which I used to enjoy. Perhaps they should have spent money on hiring a new chef instead of updating the restaurant. The food was better when the place was a tiny over crowded joint. And please delegate a host at the door!!! We stood a the door for 6 minutes before anyone approached us.

Best Soul Food anywhere – One word comes to mind when I think about the experience that I had - bliss. From the friendliness of the staff, the attentiveness of our waitress and the variety of dishes to chose from to the deliciousness of the meal itself, it was heavenly. The atmosphere is inviting and intreguing. The bar on the 3rd floor was very cool as were the specialty drinks that we had while waiting for our table. I felt like I was in a friends home. I highly recommend the seafood platter with the lobster mac-n-cheese and sweet potatoes followed by a slice of red velvet cake...to die for!

Philly's Best Kept Secret!! – This was our first visit to Ms. Tootsies...and we will definitely go again!!

From the moment my husband & I walked in, everyone was so pleasant and immediately created a very welcome feeling. The atmosphere was cozy and really encouraged conversation.

The food overall was tasty, but the fried shrimp were EXCEPTIONAL!! With just the perfect amount of breading to add a little crunch, each mouthful was all shrimp. The collard greens (cooked w/turkey..for those health conscious eaters) were tender and succulent.

Pricing was average for a night out....definitely a place to visit in Philly!!

Great stop for home food – We stopped in on Saturday about 5:30 after a long day trip to Jersey shore to explore the various towns. Had heard about Ms. Tootsie's Fried Chicken on Food Channel and being from South we were in the mood for comfort food. We were told it would be 60 minute wait so we sat at upstairs bar and had a few drinks. The bar keeper was extremely polite and attentive, the other diners waiting were freindly and the atmosphere made the time pass quickly. The food was excellent from the chicken to collards, cabbage, mixed corn, corn muffins (authenic) to sweet potato cheescake. We shared veggies among the three of us to taste them all. The group at table next to us had ties to UGA as does my wife. Lots of laughs, great service, and again excellent comfort foods.

Great Service – At 30 something years of age dining has become an all encompassing experience. I expect good food, service, and a safe environment. Gone are the days when I was willing to put up with substandard service for a "banging burger" or great hot wings. I am proud to say the service I received at Ms. Tootsies has been nothing less than outstanding. Management has been available to discuss and answer any of my concerns. While this should be common restaurant etiquette, it is not. I just had a recent experience where I attended a restaurant in my hometown and the management was not very attentive to the needs of my party. Perhaps Ms. Tootsies should consider relocating to the DC Area. I have enjoyed the service at Ms. Tootsies so much we have discussed them catering my wedding.
