Reviews for Po' Melvin's

I was driving by and saw this place and happened to be on the phone with my little sister and she said she had a friend that loved the place and always used to eat there so, I went home and read several reviews that I should have listened to. I had a cheat day yesterday and wanted seafood so bad! I ordered the seafood platter that came with fried fish, shrimp, stuffed crab, side salad and fries. I also ordered red beans and rice and the "famous" jalapeno cornbread. I got home...read full review

I came here because of all the good reviews, but won't be returning. The service was great, but the food was not. Although the fried shrimp was good (but not any better than most other places), everything else was yuck. The french fries were floppy and unseasoned, the gumbo tasted awful, and the cornbread's consistency was not palatable. The portions were huge, but that doesn't matter when you don't want to eat it.

We loved po' Melvin's before covid and still love it during! Their option for pickup is safe and easy- no need to get out of the car. Comfort food at its finest! I get the fried catch fish platter, husband gets roast beef sandwich- both are delicious and perfect for a day that calls for comfort food!
