REVIEWS OF Herman's Soul Food & Catering IN Tennessee

Danny D

Best country fried steak -- cut it with my fork! Casual, welcoming atmosphere. This was my second time to dine here & I'll definitely be back! Walked right at dinner time on Sunday & got waited on promptly.

Elizabeth Ridley

I ate there today w/my disabled father-in-law. He had country fried steak w/turnip greens & fried green tomatoes. I had fried chicken wings w/the greens & mac & cheese. The portions we received were huge, but more importantly, the food was delicious. Also, the staff was very courteous & attentive. We'll definitely be going back.

Jamale Stanley

You talk about southern hospitality at it's finest. The waiter was cool af and the food was good. Now I didn't care for there greens to tuff, but overall it was cool to try real home cooking from Tennessee... But we from Georgia and there is a difference. Go DAWG!!!

Donald Horn

Good food and the waitress was really professional.

Gloria A Elliott

The was fine. The waiting not so good.

Robert Parks

First off, this place makes one of the best fried pork chops around, and that is not often an easy thing to find. I wish I could tell you more about the rest of their food, but I get the chops every single time I go. However, the best part about Herman's is the staff. They are welcoming and pleasant in a way that makes you want to return not just for the food, but also for the experience. If you find yourself near Brainerd Road and need a good bite to eat, stop in and visit Herman's. I bet you won't regret it!

Robert James Jr

The best catfish I ever had, can't wait to eat there again.

Quincy Harris

Ordered online at 8:03 pm, was told food would be ready by 8:18 (15 minutes). Did not walk out with my food until 8:34pm. I ordered 2 sandwiches, fish and pork chop...not a time consuming order. There were about 6 to 7 other patrons in the restaurant at the time so being busy was not a factor. I got the pork chop sandwich first and had to wait 8 minutes for my fish sandwich. So my pork chop sandwich was getting cold while waiting on my fish. They are not ready for online orders, better off calling in your orders.

Kimberly Griffin

It's was great. The Service was Awesome!!!! Vonn was out of sight out did his self. 1 of my best Experiences

Diana Newton

The food was great. Really enjoyed every bite.

Larry Richardson

If you are looking for a fancy restaurant, this is not your place. However, the customer service was great. The food was hot and tasty. They were busy with many locals. Will definitely be back.

My Mom and I were looking for a place to eat near my new house, and after a previous disappointment in a "southern food" restaurant, we decided to try Herman's based on reviews and the online menu. When we got there around 6 there was only one other car in the parking lot so we were hesitant. Walking in, the place is nothing fancy. We were told to sit wherever we wanted. A small group of women came in after us. We sat there for a few minutes and it became obvious that the other women were regulars because they were waited on ahead of us while we were barely acknowledged and I was afraid this was going to be another bad dinner. The server chatted up the women and talked to them about oxtail, which I didn't see on the menu. I kind of butted in and asked about it because I love oxtail. He then came over and took our orders and became somewhat friendlier, bringing out a sample of oxtail for me. My Mom ordered the smothered pork chops and I ordered the fried catfish filets. I wasn't sure what kind of beans I wanted in addition to my Mac n cheese so I asked him to just being me whatever their best beans were. He brought out our food very quickly, along with the table that arrived after us. The portions were big. He also brought me sides of every bean they had! The only issue we had with the food was that there was quite a bit of fat and gristle on the one pork chop my Mom ate. We ended up taking home enough food for another 2-3 meals! And my catfish was amazing, both times!! I introduced myself to our server and told him I was moving about 5 minutes away. He said his name was Vaughn, and though things started slow, he ended up being very nice and told me to ask for him again. I'd definitely come back!! By the time we left the restaurant was very busy so I guess 7 pm is peak for them.

Kim Mccoy

1st. Time eating there and it was Delicious. Will be making another trip down for. I recommend everyone to try this restaurant while you are in Chattanooga.

Andrea Charles

Awww man...I ate so much...I got sick! Can't wait to go back.

Sharazna Hudson

Micah Arnold

Andre Cosley

The food here is great had to order two different dinners. I live in Knoxville but will travel the hour and a half for a good meal. Mrs. Miranda was awesome she knew almost all the customers by name amazing. Can't wait to bring the family.

Food was not great, edible. The server was nice, I order the Grilled Chop steak to go, but it's more hamburger than steak. It was covered in mushrooms and very unseasoned. The Mac n cheese is decent, but you will be using your salt and pepper for everything. Tried my boyfriend's mash potatoes they tasted like they weren't finished defrosting. I may come back for the fried green tomatoes only.

Nina Beck

Always great soul food. Great customer service also.

aisha fair

Good food, but I went in and ordered, went back to my car and came back in 10 minutes later & I guess they forgot about my order. So the older lady goes back there, after handling my money, and put my fish sandwich together and everything else without gloves NOR washing her hands .. I KNOW she knows better than that.. just nasty

Drew Malone Hugghis

Best Spaghetti in Chattanooga Period..

Carmene Cain

It amazes me how on some days I can order get my food in five ten minutes tops. Other days like today I ordered as soon as I walked in 40 minutes later my food arrives. I don't care to hear excuses and blame fix the problem. That's ok I'll take my $15 to $20 dollar lunch break elsewhere. My lunch sitting in the car getting cold after I paid for it and can't eat it. I'm so pissed right now.

G Patrick

Food and service was great...

Marc Bue

I had no real expectations on coming here, but I'm so glad we did. I had the smothered pork chops on rice with fried okra. My wife had the Whiting. It was all very good. I hope to stop by again when I'm in Chattanooga.

Anthony Stamper

Customer service sucks try going to c&w cafe on 23rd st

Kelly Steele

I was in Chattanooga for training and looking for a place to eat before returning home. Herman's is definitely a place to recommend. The food was flavorful and authentic. I order the pork chop sandwich and still had one to take home.! Due to time I was not able to eat my dessert, but took it with me. I know it will be just as good!!

Chris Jamez

The food is always great especially the whiting fish and customer service is outstanding.

Andrea Heard

They always leave something off my order, and they are some what unprofessional it's to many in the front area. They need a call in order line and a line for walk in orders.

Caitlin Summey

They were slammed when my friend and I came in, had a heavy to-go line the whole time. It was a sunday and they had a sunday special: Turkey, gravy, cornbread. And also, beef tips, gravy, on rice. I had the turkey, okra and mac and cheese. My friend had fried chicken, waffles, fried tomatoes, and mac and cheese. The sides and the dinner was all bomb, would absolutely go again.

Betty Scoggins

Great Soul Food. The Hamburger Steak with onions, green peppers, mushrooms was fantastic. Also the fried green tomatoes were wonderful. Visit soon

David Black

Great food! Great service! If you want great home cooking look no further!

Veronica Cheatham

The food was truly "Old School" in a great way. The wait was longer then I cared for, but the food was well worth it!!! I'll be going back again.

Liag Isa

Great service and food. My daughter and I are very happy we decided to dine there.

Michael Upshaw

Best restaurant I've been to years food is absolutely wonderful. I will be going back soon, if you are in Chattanooga and like soul food you need to stop by Herman's Soul Food it will not disappoint.

Barry Edwards

The food is good but they make too many mistakes on carryout orders. They've made 5 mistakes on my orders the past few times that I've ordered from them.

B Jones

Herman's find us s li wa it s SUPER! But customer service sucks. Not all the wait staff, but most. They going to ruin his business.

Bridgett Kearney

I was very disappointed with today's visit, we are from Nashville Tenn and we had to stop because my mother loves Herman's. Going back and forth to Atlanta we have to stop and get her a fish sandwich. Today we was there when they opened and it took our food for EVER for us to get our food and people that came after us got their food before we did. My sister food TOOK FOR EVER, we was finish eating and her food FINALLY came and it was not correct what she ordered and we had to put it to go. I was unhappy because my mother really like this place but me and my sister said it was our LAST VISIT to this place. Very UNORGANIZED today!!!

G Dr

They messed up my order and the food wasn't that great and I don't know why they offer you tomatoes with every order

Rebecca Holloway

Johnny Hughes

Great food but we had to wait over an hour after we sit down.

kimberly c

So good!

Lonnie Bronner

The food was good and our server was great. She was knowledgeable of the menu and questions about the area! I would recommend this place if you want a home cooked menu!

Danielle King

Not soo good soul food. As a southerner I expect better. Don’t order the buttermilk waffles ain’t nothing buttermilk about it. Mac and cheese taste like golden corral waffles.

Lisa Aring

Waiter was super nice and attentive. Christian even laughed at my bad jokes. Food was excellent and with large portions. Building maintaince is needed.

Curtis Haygood

We have visited Herman’s every time we were in the area and some times we would drive up just to visit family and eat. We had to wait for over an hour for food. We were traveling home and decided to stop. We also have family there and …

Tammie Willis

I love this place!! They catered my Christmas dinner last year. A ham, turkey and dressing! And I have eat in a few times! Best red velvet cake in the south!!!

Samantha wise

Herman's is a great soul food restaurant, you get full in more. They were slow this evening , but it's wroth time love it


I am an out of town visitor, and the fact that I had to wait for damn near an hour for some chicken wings is awful. Customer service is absolutely DISGUSTING! No one greets you, they are slow as hell and the place is old and unkept. I like supporting black owned businesses but I will not EVER be back here.

Marlene Jordan

Herman's is very good southern cooking. You get plenty for your money. I usually order the Fried Pork Chop dinner w/greens and Mac and cheese w/corn bread. With this you get 2 large pork chops, ymmm. Also add your favorite cake, mine German Chocolate.


Good food, Great price.... 3 people under $30

Richard Scott

First time visit. Excellent home cooking. I had the white fish. It was great! Not over battered and the seasoning was just right. The peach cobbler was the best I've ever had!!! Will definitely be going back.

Robin Coker

Terrible food and service. I ordered country fried steak with potatoes on top. Potatoes were from a box. My friend ordered meatloaf and the sauce on top was pizza sauce. The waitress never brought out our rolls or tomato and onions. Never be back!

Juanita Robinson

Great place too good old home cooking.

Tracy Penn

I love this place! I hadn't been in forever and I was super excited to get back. They didn't disappoint. The staff was super friendly and professional. The restaurant was clean. The food was superb. The baked mac and cheese there is awesome. I had the fried whiting and it was perfect. Our waiter kept our glasses full.

Deb Nicholas

Soul is correct! Catfish was really good. Fresh, obviously hand breaded, two very large pieces, Cole slaw and two sides... what more could you want? Friendly folks, fast attentive service with just enough Southern charm to make you feel right at home. Not many places around that actually cook any more. Enjoy!

Veronica Thomas

Herman’s is EVERYTHING‼️ The service is fantastic the food is ssssoooo GOOD‼️

Glenda Smith

Great food. Friendly service. Every person there was nice, efficient and made you feel at home. The menu has something for everyone, and the portions are generous. I'll be going back often.

Lily of the Valley

Flavorful, family atmosphere with smiling waitstaff and very happy customers. Took away a star because there is just TOO MUCH FOOD!

Laurie Brown

Great service and fantastic food!!

Tee Dub

Went here on a recommendation. Won't go back. Service was provided with a couldn't be bothered attitude we noticed across the tables. Powdered tasting sweet tea with a weird lemon zing. Instant tasting potatoes. Wings the size of your thumb, aka, tiny Trump hand thumbs. Greens with no seasoning, aka, out of a can. Green beans with some seasoning, aka, the same from the grocery store, out of a can. Fried corn was actually creamed corn??? Corn bread was OK. Fish was OK with bones but not sure what fish it actually was? Plus I coated it in Louisana hot sauce which was brought to the table thankfully. Country fried steak tasted like it was just coated in Bisquick. Steamed cabbage was OK for bland craving palates. Bland sums up the experience from eating at Herman's. If you think this is good soul food or southern food you've never ever heard of or tasted a dish from Edna Lewis! Amazon her books and cook at home. Then sit in the tub of tears you'll cry from thinking you ate soul food here.

Oliver Douthard

Great Service, Great Food!!!

Melanie Galloway

Good food. We went for my unclea repast with about 30 people and they still got the food out on time!!

Ron Williams

The food was VERY Good. The fried whiting fish and fried okra were exceptional.

Barbergirl Willis

Customer service was severly lacking even when the manager admitted they made the mistake in giving our food to the wrong table. For example our waitress submitted our order to the cook but another waitress grabbed our chicken wings for her table, knowing that order was not for her table. Hence 4 of us got our food while my mother and I had to wait for our food to be re-ordered. Finally my order arrived but my mother waited almost 30mins. before the waitress informed my mom to wait 15 additional minutes for her wing plate. She said proceed with the order but please send for your manager. The manager arrives with an attitude saying I can give y'all free beverages and a slice of cake....BUT no apology for his staff "screwing up". Next my mom explained this was very unprofessional and the manager verbally insulted my mom and our family saying that's all y'all want is a free meal. We reminded the manager we hired him for catering, HENCE we have mobey we were expecting PROFESSIONAL SERVICE!!!!

Kandace Sanford

My food and the service was great

C. Thomas Sims Jr.

Great service, clean and friendly environment.

Josephine Scruggs

Good food good people

Sherry Witherow

Anne the waitress was one of the best to be waited on by. It's under new management and the manager even came out and checked on us. We had fun.

Shanekia Underwoid

Great soul food. I like their BBQ chicken, greens, Mac n cheese, fish, and owee their carrot cake. They have variety of different foods to bring to the soul. Lol Friendly service...

Diandre Mosley

The service is quick and welcoming The were friendly as well. The food is decorated I had their chicken and waffles and it had great flavor. It may not look like much on the the outside, With few features to make it stand out but it makes up for it on the inside. Thescenery inside is very classy and decorative warm browns and reds. Highly recommended place to stop by.

Faye Cofield

Great food and great prices. Love eating there when I go to Chattanooga

Tim Barrett

Good food. Service could have been better.
