REVIEWS OF Southern Comfort Restaurant IN Alabama

Anna B

Food was mediocre. Service was lacking. Wouldn't visit again.

Bruce Lewis

Terrific home styled comfort food

Becky Payne

DELICIOUS! I had the fried porkchop and it filled my entire plate, practically! Had to take half of it home. The side sald was loaded with romaine lettuce, boiled egg, tomatoes and croutons and they even carried my favorite dressing. :-) The service was GREAT! Tiffany took good care of us! Will have to make the trip to eat here again sometime soon!

gary dollar

This place was kind of small inside and packed. I can understand why. The food was great southern BBQ. The service was fast and friendly without being overbearing. I will come back here the next time in Montgomery.

Sarah Payne

We stopped at this place on our drive to Nashville. The decor was a bit sterile for a restaurant called Southern Comfort, but the food was better than any gas station restaurant stuff you'll find. Towards the end of our late lunch/early dinner a lot of locals started coming in, which is always a great sign. The service was friendly and relatively quick.

Jeremy Buttrum

Great Good! Friendly service! Great prices! We stopped by chance on our way back home. So glad we did. Best food we had our whole trip!

April Fluellen

The food was average and the service was decent. I wouldn't eat here again. I had the pulled pork sandwich. It didn't have much flavor. I hated the sauce. My son had a burger and it was pretty good. Overall we were disappointed - expected more based on reviews.

Daniel Russell

Very good food. Expect a plate like grandma cooked it. Because she did. I rarely rate things 5 star but this place deserves it. Meat loaf, chicken fried chicken/ steak are excellent choices. Prepare to have a plate full to eat.

Jason Lagarde

Food isn’t that good. The inside design is horrible and reminds you of a dumpster.

Clay Leavell

Great food, great service. The chicken fried chicken is juicy, tender, and full of flavor.

Allen Skinner

Great non chain restaurant. The only sit down restaurant off the I 65 exit except for Waffle House. Pros: Decent service but what sells the place is the food. Excellent southern fried chicken and chicken fried chicken and good quality sides. Cons: Portions were a bit small for the price and the place is a bit off the beaten path so hard to find = 4 star rating.

Owen Mullinax

Good food at reasonable prices. Had pulled pork, okra, catfish, collard greens, and memphis dry rub ribs. All were fantastic and worth a stop, except for the smoked ribs, which were quite tough and over cooked. Other than that, it would get 5 stars. Sides were some of the best around.

Sarrah Lombardo

Our campground host recommended this place and it did not disappoint! The pulled pork was delicious! Our server was very nice and it's felt like everyone was family.

Lana Smith

Yummy comfort food and friendly staff!

Joe Stonecypher

Great food for a little restaurant off of the beaten path. Great tasting food no matter what you order.

Ben Cowart

Nice meal with coworkers here.

Melissa Eker

Good barbecue sauce, loved the fried green tomatoes. The sweet tea and water tasted chlorinated....but the cooking was pretty good.

Chalint El Champasi

Awesome pulled pork sandwich

Paul Miller

The lady at the front desk said this place was great. I plan to get the Bar B Q with a side of Brunswick Stew. I will let you know....You can see what I got and it was goood!

raymond evans

Amazing food and great customer service. I highly recommend the beef stew!

Brandy Speakman

We stopped here on our way home from PCB. We stopped because it had good reviews and we didn't feel like eating at a fast food place like MacDonald's. The food was bland. The waitress was friendly enough, but the place was definitely lacking that southern hospitality. The owner or manager, was not friendly at all. Borderline rude. Very disappointed overall.

John Mock

Food is good but service is a little slow. They are always really busy during lunch.

Matthew Reaves

Wow was this place a surprise! Given how far away it is from life, I was not expecting much but WOW!! The fries were sinfully delicious, the steak was amazing and huge and the service was just right!

Enrique Perez

Favorite place to visit when I hit Montgomery. Love it!

Merrilyn Cook

Food is all right. It was too cold inside the restaurant which made it uncomfortable.

Robert Garcia

The firecracker shrimp was pretty tasty. Also enjoyed the mac and cheese as well as the potato salad. The cornbread is a little off, not a fan. The staff was friendly enough but seemed distracted. Overall a good experience.

skylar singer

This is the perfect place to go when traveling. We always stop by when we are in our way to the beach. They have great food and low prices. The service is great. I hope you like this restaurant as much as my family did!

Saranda Fritz

We stopped on our way from Florida to North Carolina. We got there right before a big rush of customers. Fast and friendly service. Very friendly to our kids. The food was great and we will definitely return on our next trip.

Jason Daniel

They have amazing food and service all around. We (Montgomery Aviation) frequent there and never had a complaint or problem! I tried the firecracker shrimp for the first time today!! Very good, very spicy!!

loretta lawrence

Food was ok. Server was ok. Menu said lunch specials offered but when we ask waitress she said they dont have any lunch specials!

Jeffrey Pickett

Very very good country food excellent people I will be back.

M Pc

Wasn't bad

Yvonne Hinton

On vacation and nice to stop by and eat soul food cooking

Kip Henderson

Food and service has been good but the last time I went the young waitress was SO RUDE I will not go back.

Harvey Cauley

Good food. Good portions. Good price and service

Zachary Crothers

Love this place. The owner is amazing and food will have you coming back time and time again.


Great spot and local to boot. Pulled pork was solid and the banana pudding was one of the best I've ever had. I'll be back for sure.

Kelley McKinnes

Good food. Friendly servers and the service was adequate. Simple southern American fare. Tables were a little sticky, which knocked down my rating. Nice thing was that it's located relatively close to the Montgomery airport.

Laura Westerfield

Excellent service, wonderful food. We almost missed it, had to turn around and go back, and I'm glad we did! Definitely a hidden gem.

Tony Beach

The steak fingers were really good. The Ethier gravy was on point. Along with the mashed potatoes. Service was good.


We really enjoyed our lunch Tasty food wonderful people

Scott Seefeldt

Fried okra was amazing. Went with two friends and all of the main dishes seemed comparable to above average for places of this nature.

Kevin McDaniel

Great food, good service, I left stuffed.

Alexander Gearhart

Food here is always amazing. I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys good southern cooking. Staff is friendly and it's a treat to eat here. Takeout is available.

Nathan DeBarr

The food was great

Steve Grauberger

The food I had was all unseasoned.

Eddie Cox

Food was good but service was poor

Sarah Klein

Great experience, super fast service despite a busy lunch rush. Everything was delicious, perfect road trip pit stop!

Adam Harms-Colby

Really really good food. I went with a bunch of colleagues and everyone enjoyed the food. Don't go of you're in a rush as it takes time to get the food to you...I believe that's because it's all freshly made.

Cheryl Gilliam

Food was great and service was great

Russ Gunton

Fabulous food, great service & prices.

Andy Taylor

Great food! Very friendly service!

Juliana Daniels

Food was good

Traci Janelle

The fried green tomatoes & the sweet, tangy white dipping sauce was my meals saving grace - delicious! The mac & cheese + baked beans were sooo underwhelming. I couldn't finish them. Greens were ok. Needs seasoning, flavor! They don't even serve BBQ here; The chicken is rotisserie style (No brine; Flavor is only in the skin) or in fried tenders. The fries were good. Disappointed; I expected better from Alabama.

Guy Baker

food is good, the few employees seem overwhelmed

Stephen Fox

Good down home cooking. Good service.

Craig Van Wormer

Had a great lunch

David Coughtry

Walked about a mile from the truck stop on the other side if the interstate...WELL WORTH THE WALK!! Food was excellent. Service was prompt with a side of genuine southern hospitality (not the insincere civility so common in the service industry now days). Enjoyed friendly conversation with the other patrons as well. Will definitely be bac!!.

Julie Cooper

The food is delicious and the prices are appropriate. The service was fast and the staff was attentive. The establishment has a southern homey feel. It's a great place to get homemade southern food.

Tom Wolfe

Medokre food at best. Really was not too impressed with the food, however the service was descent.

ann marie loera

Omylanta, this place is phenomenal. I now know why they have such a high rating. The food was delicious, the portion was plentiful and the service was inviting. If you find yourself driving in this area and need to fill your belly, I highly recommend this establishment. Thank you so much Southern Comfort Restaurant and now back on the road.

Cindy Clark

Best food, had Hamburger steak with onion gravy, mashed potatoes and gravy, cornbread, green fried tomatoes and 32 oz. of sweet tea, total bill was just over $15. Can I get this restaurant to take home to Tennessee? Delicious.

Nick Mitchell

It took awhile for someone to come greet us. Then they sat a table in front of us while we waited on our table to get cleaned off. Last we saw of anyone. Left 10 minutes later.

Donovan Vasios

best damn pulled pork in Montgomery

Eric Baenen

Convenient place just down the road from the Airport Fairfield Inn hotel. Ate there twice while staying at the hotel. Staff is friendly and nice. Pulled pork is ok and you get a decent portion but it's not very smokey flavored. Also had the fried catfish. Not a very big portion. Also overcooked and rather dry, but it tasted pretty good. Not a lot of nearby choices if you're staying at the airport hotels so this restaurant is decent.

Joe Ely

What a fun surprise! Traveling to Gulf Shores, stayed in the Holiday Inn nearby and checked Yelp for an interesting place to eat...this is why Yelp is so good. A neat, clean, tidy small spot with terrific food. My wife got ribs and collard greens...she could not stop raving about both. I had the pulled pork sandwich. Very tender and mildly flavored. I added some BBQ sauce to suit my taste and just savored it all. We split the key lime pie in a mason jar for dessert...a prefect finish for a fun meal. Very friendly staff. If we lived here, this would be a go-to spot for sure!

deborah pickel

First time dining here. It will be a must stop on every trip to Panama City Beach ! Great food, very friendly staff! Wish I had room to try all the from scratch sides. Next trip I’m trying the fried green tomatoes!


You can tell they care about their food. Price point is good, food is homemade, and you won’t be disappointed

Andrew Huggins

Always good food and fast service. They take AMEX which is nice


Yum yum!!! Found this place about 10 years ago. The food was amazing, my pulled pork was perfect, my wife loved her chicken salad. The BBQ sauce was so good, we had to buy a pint to take with us. Our waitress, Angel did a great job! The management has changed since my last visit, the food quality has not. If you are on your way to or from the beach, or just nearby, give Southern Comfort a try!

E Coleman

GREAT SOUTHERN COOKING! Family owned so they do have a take it or leave it attitude; but as long as you're considerate & respectful of their time, you should have no complaints. We didn't. Besides if you were trying to close & a group comes in at 5 minutes to closing on a Sunday, wouldn't you be a little cranky too? Best southern cooking we've ever had in a restaurant & we travel around a lot. DEFINITELY A MUST GO!

Tobias Grant

Some of the best food in the area. The only drawbacks are the relative remoteness of its location and the fact that the prices are about five dollars more on average than other places serving comprable food. But it is by far the best food near near Hope Hull and the management is top notch.

Billie Layman

Wow! The food was the best southern food I've had. This place is a hidden gem.

Kay Klewin

Hidden gem. Loved the food.

Twylia Corbin

Great service great food. The locals are lucky. Thanks from Dalton, Ga

Brenda Poynter

Fried chicken is AMAZING and so are the cornbread biscuits! Fried green tomatoes are good. Prices are great! A hidden Gem!

Greg James

Good food. Good service. Little on the pricey side but not bad.

Kaylee Morris

This place is a perfect "hole in the wall" restaurant, the food was amazing, and the prices were not bad at all... I would highly recommend to anyone!!

Juan Martinez

Amazing food and atmosphere. I stop by on my road trip from Texas, totally worth it.

Chris Golden

The food was excellent. The pulled pork was perfect. Not greasy. Large serving with two types of sauce on the table. One tomato based and one vinegar based. The fried green tomatoes were good. It had a panko crust. The Mac and cheese was creamy and very cheesy.

Joshua King

Fast service food was good had the ribs and macaroni and cheese

Omar Alejandro Pina

Very friendly staff and delicious food made for a great stop on the way South. 10-15 min from Montgomery, this will now be one of my regular weekly lunch spots. Food is made to order, fresh and generous portions. Worth every dollar!


Great food and friendly staff

John White

Good place for eat

Melanin Rich

Delish! Home cooked food made to order! Makes me sad the owner is retiring, he's such a sweet guy! Had a chance to talk to him today!

Allison Burleson

We stopped on our way back from the beach and were amazed at the quality and service! Food was definitely homemade... Nothing out of a can here. Restaurant and bathrooms were incredibly clean, service was excellent... We will be back!


Air conditioning needs help and tables sticky. Saturday night and empty at 7pm

Marilyn Law

Very neat restaurant. If you like Southern home cooking you will like it. Family atmosphere. Waitress were on top of everything. Enjoyed every second I was there.

Kaye Bunch

Excellent food. We had the Wednesday meatloaf special and the gumbo. Fantastic corn muffins. The restaurant was very clean including restroom. The staff was efficient and friendly.

cecil holton

Great country style cooking and friendly staff

Oscar Hooks

The food was great. We will be going back.

Wanda Pierce

This was a great place to eat. Great service and food. Everything is homemade. Some of the best pulled pork sandwich we have had. Exit 164 in Hope Hull Ala. Sweet people.Thanks y'all.

Kk Kk

I heard alot of good things about this place, so stopped by for dinner. The restaurant was clean and the menu had a variety of items to choose from. I ordered the smoked chicken (with white bbq sauce), coleslaw, baked beans and baked potato. The BBQ sauce was very tasty and I used it for my potato as well. The chicken was good and had a mild smokey flavor; it was a little on the dry side (however, I know it's difficult to keep all the moisture in and it was around closing time). I will definitely visit again to try some more tasty food!

Danielle Lumpkin

Their service is terrible. We stood at the door for five minutes, there was only three tables occupied and the one waitress went in and out of the kitchen several times without acknowledging that we were waiting. We final sat ourselves only to have her decide to move us several minutes later. Which was really unnecessary since the place was more than half empty the whole time we were there. She dumped a whole serving cup of salad dressing on our table when she brought out the salad then she left the mess and went back to dealing with other tables. I thought she would return to clean it up but she didn't even try to clean it when she brought a new dressing. I got her attention after she left the new dressing and went to a different table. I asked her to clean up the mess. She brought me a stack of napkins then walked away. She never refilled our drinks. In regards to their food. My husband loved it. Just the way his grandma made it. I hated it and found much of it inedible. The most disappointing things were the coleslaw, it was warm and had a film on the top that made me think it had sat out for awhile. I took one bite and set it aside. Also their house BBQ sauces are disgusting. I thought they had turned but I checked several bottles from the other vacant tables and it all tasted the same. We ordered the keylime dessert which smelled sour to me and tasted a bit off, again my husband loved it. I don't care much for southern food so I didn't expect to love my meal but between the awful service and the low quality food I won't eat there again. My hubby loved the food so if we go back I'll eat before we go and lower my expectations for customer service.

Da Hing

Nice little restaurant to break up a unhurried roadtrip. Very good country style cooking.

Robert Shreve

Great food and service

Ryan Alverdes

Our food here was fine, but there was nothing particularly special about it. This was my first experience with the white barbecue sauce, and I've actually had it since and it was much better elsewhere. Still, the food was good, just not great.


The food was amazing and service was excellent. I got the 2 piece fried chicken and it was fried to perfection. I recommend dark meat because it was a lot juicier. I also got coleslaw and baked beans for my sides and it loved both! The sweet tea was also delicious! 10/10 I would come back again!

Anthony Walker

Nice cozy quiet spot.. Food was gd. Thank you

Melodie Mcinvaill

Always good food and excellent service. Chicken fried steak is awesome! Always take visitors to SoCo for dinner.

David H

Awesome place for truly great southern fried chicken! Staff is very friendly and welcoming! If you are staying in one of the hotels in Hope Hull, AL, don't miss out on this little hidden gem! Fried green tomatoes are the very best ever! If you order the fried chicken be prepared to wait about 25 minutes because it is made fresh and well worth the wait!

Austin Brewer

Enjoyed a great lunch of Bar-B-Que Pork Sandwich, Baked Beans, and Sweet Tea. Food was delicious. There was enough meat for another whole sandwich. Server was courteous, efficient, and made sure that we were satisfied with the food. The place was really busy but entire staff kept things moving with minimal waiting. I will definitely eat there again when in the area.

Jeremy Wren

Nice place good food

Eric Burke

Delicious southern style restaurant, big portions, good selection of great food sides and dessert! Very popular and a must try if in the area! Excellent staff as well.

Samantha Leonard

This food was out. Of. This. World. We ate so much it hurt but it was worth it! All very fresh and hot and made from scratch. Try the dirty fries, you won't regret it!

S R Bunch

This is truly a wonderful southern cooking place. Wonderful meatloaf, fried okra, mashed potatoes, and great corn bread. Also, great gumbo. Friendly efficient employees. Really clean. Off the beaten path but worth it.

Chris Hancock

Come hungry! Nice spot for southern food

cathy Pearce

I'd say the food was average. Service mediocre. Not exactly Southern hospitality friendly. Made a detour to eat here based on great reviews. Wish we hadn't. Cracker Barrel is actually better with lower prices. The banana pudding was pretty good.

Bert Mitchell

Good food and service.

Paul Rainey

Great service and food!

Joy Cummings

Very good had the black eye peas, okra,fried green tomatoes and a cup of stew all very good plus a corn bread puffin that was delicious. Great southren cooking. Rest of family had different food all great.

Michael Esola

had a great southern style meal and a good price .staff was amazing and very friendly . if im ever in the area again i will be sure to go again.

Christina Chunn

Food was good. Wasn't impressed with the owner. They need to be educated about service animals and the federal laws that protect against discrimination. If you live here they are friendly and if you don't they don't care to show southern hospitality. I saw first hand how locals and traveler's were treated. The drive 11 miles to a variety of restaurants is probably well worth it. Not much here. We won't stay in this area while traveling again. Best of luck to the next traveler's.

Nathan Meier

Awesome comfort food. The wings have a nice smoke but are still crispy. It's a great place to stop any time but my personal favorite for before or after a flight out of MGM.

Linda Perdue

Food selection was good. Food was Great. Servicer was friendly and took care of all our needs. If you have not been try it. It is worth the trip. We drove 25 miles to ear there .

loridersmooth .

Todd Smith

It was really good and the service was good not great but good.

Bo Jamison

Ample portions, fast and very friendly service. Nice little out of the way spot. Food was very good, chicken fried chicken was ALOT of food, but very tender and tasted really good. Enjoyed the quick lunch visit and would recommend to anyone wanting a good bite to eat.

Frederic Mulika

Very good.One of good places in Montgomery.

Benita epps hallmark

Unexpected find! Looking for a place to eat after touring the Hyundai auto plant. The food was very good, fresh and hot. You could order a meal off the menu, meat and three, or three and four item vegetable plates. Some of our group ordered the barbecue. They said it was very good. I got the four vegetable plate- Fried Green Tomatoes, collard greens, a cup of Brunswick stew (for $1.75 more), and dried Black Eyed Peas. Cornbread was also included with each plate. We thought it was in an out-of-the-way place, but that little restaurant filled up FAST. Would definitely go back again.

Brent Rickman

Large portions. Usually not very crowded. Side salad is good!

Gerald Thornberry

Great local place! So much better than fast food restaurants in the area. Staff/owners are very friendly. We really enjoyed the chicken fried chicken, collard greens, and fried shrimp. I would definitely recommend it if you're in the mood for southern country cooking.

Michael Coop

What is a BBLT you ask? Its fried bologna, bacon, lettuce and tomato! Great comfort food served here in the southern tradition. Fried green tomatoes and okra as sides. Yum

Andre' Vanhorn

Service was super fast and friendly. The fried chicken and beans were delicious. The Mac and cheese was decent but I wasn't in love with the corn bread. Definitely worth it especially for the price.

Our new favorite place when we travel that way!

Food was delicious! Friendly service!! Stopped here on a road trip will be back next time we travel that way!

Troy Camp

Great food and service.

Wolfgang Schreiner

Used to be a great place to eat, but that is no longer the case. Super rude waitress (Angel) and terrible service. Definitely not worth the money ($34.00 for lunch for two).

Keith Lavachek

Chicken fried chicken... Awesome.

John Pfoutz

Great people and delicious food

Shayan Shahbazi

Chiggery Thicket

It ain't fast food so that's a plus, but place smells like mildew, tables are sticky, food okay, service pleasant but overwhelmed
