It's what soul food should be! My girlfriend caters and I cook as well. Rare to find a restaurant that cooks as well as we do. Everything was amazing!

Food was delicious! Seasoned just right. Prompt customer service, she explained everything we needed to know. Thank you very much! We will definitely be back!!!

Today was rather disappointing... Neil St. Blues like many other establishments is unfortunately, short-staffed or at least they were today. After being seated it was 10 mins before we were acknowledged, another 15 before we got plates, another 5-7 before we went asking for silverware to eat with, another 5-7 before we had beverages, ... read more

OMG Neil St. Blues owes me nothing!!!! When I tell everything we ordered was a well seasoned delicious experience crafted to reward my tastebuds for their years of dedicated service. Our waitress was just as wonderful as the food. Deja was a great server and her suggestions did not disappoint. The food came out hot and delicious.

Very good shrimp and grits! One of my kids liked their chicken and waffle, and the other one liked her chicken sandwich. The service was friendly. This restaurant has higher-end items, but also sandwiches. You can go there and spend a good buck on something great, or save money with scaled down items. I wanna go back and try other di ... read more

Great atmosphere, clean interior. Grilled shrimp was fresh and well seasoned. Pasta was tender and delicious. Service was slow though. Banana pudding was nothing spectacular.

I ordered the chicken wing Dinner that comes with 4 pieces (Fried hard) to give you that nice crispy skin, while being juicy and tender inside. My sides Included mac and cheese , and collard gree ... read more

Nice music, simple but nice decor. Friendly service. Burger and fries were good. A little expensive. $30 lunch for 2.
Greg Purnell via - Sep 8, 2021
The food gets five stars, the service was considerably less then that. To be fair, I was ina big party and seated outside, but the real issue was communication. A number of times our party was told the server would be back in just a minute (with drinks, to take our order, to fix an order that was wrong) but it took 5-10 minutes betwe ... read more

First time here. I was visiting a very dear friend and she took me to this place saying the food was delicious. I am a picky person and I must say it was delicious. The food was seasoned well and the staff was very friendly. I'm sad because is moving but I will probably make a 2 1/2 hour trip to eat here again.

What can I say? I grew up in south eastern Louisiana in very culturally diverse neighborhoods. Since moving to Chicagoland I've been on a quest to find a little bit of home. Absolutely love some of the restaurants on the south side of Chicago but haven't been there in years since moving out of the city proper. Was visiting with a fri ... read more

Overall it was okay, the food was good but the service was eh. Half *MOST* of the time we didn’t even have a drink because our server hardly acknowledged us. I would understand if it was busy but there wasn’t even a lot of people at the restaurant. I also had the oysters which was disappointing, really small for $12 ... read more
