Went there with my daughter and granddaughters. The service was excellent and the food was very well done I had the King Crawdaddy Chowder which was very tasty but a little too much rice. Tha sandwiches were good, served with Cajun fries which weren't too spicy. Our waitress, Flo was efficient and attentive. I will return when I'm back in... More

This was a most disappointing place to eat. My husband and I had a groupon with no expiration date for Po'Boys Café. The waitress said that was fine when we showed her. Then, after ordering and eating, she said that they could not accept the groupon - which was for Po'Boys café because the original Po'Boys had gone bankrupt and... More

I eat everything and i like everything pretty much. But a recent visit to this restaurant was very very disappointing. The fried pickles we ordered also made me sick. There portion size was huge but the quality was poor. The Po dip was downright below average quality. The margaritas seemed to be missing tequila. Prices are cheap but i would... More

This is not a top-notch place, but a genuine pub the locals go to. From the outside it looks weird, but inside - a pub with an atmosphere can be found. Pitchers of beer, alligator bites and fried pickles. Both the gumbo and jambalaya were ok. For a tourist - a nice authentic getaway from touristic restaurants or fast food... More

We came here on a Tuesday night and it was worth it. The restaurant is blocks away from the Florida State football stadium. Everyone at the table got the buffalo chicken po'boy because my brother recommended it and it was very good. Maybe a tad on the spicy side. I got the french fries seasoned and the were just ok....

Years ago Po Boys was delicious. It went down hill but since ownership changed we decided to try it out. The service was good, except we had to get silverware from a wait station. Management checked in on us. The chicken on the po boy was dry and lacked season, the peppers and onions made the bread soggy from grease.... More

I'm not sure why this restaurant is so popular in Tallahassee. If you want to get your fried food fix then maybe you would enjoy it. However, the service is so slow (just like everyone else who reviewed said). It took us over an hour to get our food! Also, the bathroom is so gross, its worse than a port-o-potty.... More

I love and hate this place all at the same time. I truly enjoy it during football games because there are enough tvs that there are usually plenty of different games on. The food at Po'Boys is very good. Everything I have ever tried I have liked. Their fried pickle appetizer is great, I love their po'boys, and their chicken... More

I've spent many an afternoon at Po Boys enjoying one of Tallahassee's finest traditions. The food is pretty good, the location is amazing, and you can't get more of an authentic college ambiance. The problem with this place is that it has the worst, most god-awful service that I have ever experienced at a restaurant. Ask any employee on a... More
