Reviews for The Candied Yam

Laura Ward

Wow! Everything we ordered was SO GOOD. Fried chicken was piping hot, crispy and flavorful...same with the perch. Sides were on point. The cabbage and candied yams were so delicious. We’ll be back!

Kelly Hynes

Absolutely amazing food. We told Jessica, the owner that we were vegan and she formulated an awesome plate. Customer service was phenomenal as soon as we walked through the door and we felt like we just left our mom's house full of love and hugs. Highly recommend and can't rave enough about the hospitality that matches the amazing taste of food.

My favorite place to get take out in Kentwood (or really the GR area) - everything is so delicious and my whole family loves it!!! Better than Thanksgiving dinner!! Wonderful staff and service too!! We love the Candied Yam!!
