The best crab cakes in Champaign! ...
The best crab cakes in Champaign! Large, moist and full of crab meat. The remoulade sauce is the perfect topping. Catfish Po' Boy and chicken and waffles are delicious too. The filet is crunchy, thick and perfectly seasoned and the Belgium waffle is firm and flavorful. The server is knowledgeable and very attentive. We will be back.

The food iS ALL GOOD! Tried a few apps fried green tomatoes, fried pickles, Philly cheese egg rolls. Ribs and fried chicken where great!
James Cole via - Sep 19, 2020
The food was excellent and staff was very nice. I had alligator po'boy. The shrimp po'boy had a nice kick. Banana pudding was best I have ever had. Philly steak egg rolls were really good and we had another appetizer that was very good as well. Honestly it is hard to pick the menu in general sounds great.

Neil St. Blues is one of the best all around places to eat in Central Illinois. Their menu contains some staple options, as well as plant-based substitutes. Neil St. Blues also has a full bar with a great drink menu. This black owned business is just a block from the Hyatt in downtown Urbana.

Best place to get catfish and soul food sides! Catfish is crispy and perfectly seasoned. Mac n cheese has just enough salt and pepper. Greens are real and not from a can! And the cornbread is soft. Overall great place to eat!

Frog legs are delish. Drinks are delish. Food is full of flavor & you’ll definitely need a box to take your food home. Jul was our server & he’s the BEST. We’ll be back.

Me and my partner had mixed reviews on our takeout order. I got the Blues Burger which was super delicious! My partner got the yardbird and the two of us weren’t very big fans.
Danny Clark via - Aug 17, 2020
Absolutely love the food, ambiance, and service. The owners are great people who really care about bringing amazing soul food to Champaign. Can’t wait to see how this restaurant grows!!

Honestly one of the best places to eat in Champaign. Absolute banger. Ordered a vegan burger and it was top notch. Owner was busy at the bar but still stopped by our table to talk to us. I'd love to come again to see the live music.

Loved it! It's also great that they have the option of dining in, outdoor seating and takeout. I had the deep fried Catfish Fillet Dinner with sides of sweet potato fries , red beans & rice. I especially enjoyed the sweet potato fries. It's one of the best I've had - looks visually appealing and tastes great. A mix of waffle-looks an ... read more

Great service. Fast. Definitely delicious. Needed more salt in the greens and a tad bit more sugar in the sweet potatoes, but I’m from southern Indiana and we like sweet and salty.

Great service. They are doing a great job complying with covid regulations. Fried chicken was amazing, shrimp and grits needed a touch of salt but that is what hot sauce is for! Overall highly recommend supporting this great local business. Looking forward to when they can have live music.

Been looking forward to coming here since before the lockdown. We had a fantastic lunch. I had the shrimp po-boy, and my friend had the yardbird sandwich. We started with the fried green tomatoes, which were good, but my wife makes them at home so I'm a bit spoiled. Also, please don't serve them with ranch. I can give you a great rec ... read more

Great addition to downtown Champaign. Love the food, love the vibe. Service is great.
