I was recently craving fried chicken and too tired to drive far, so decided to give Honey's Kettle another try. Amazingly, it is like a different restaurant. Staff are still very nice and food is now delicious. I particularly love the fish fillet, the tender, sweet corn-on-th-cob, and the flavored lemonades. Everyone seems to have discovered the same thing, because... More

i like fried chicken and its hard to get find places that will make a good fried chicken but I think this place is over rated and, their chicken is just ok and the price is way too high for what you get. Popeyes has better chicken and costs less. I spent 35 for my cousin and myself. I got... More

It's really a shame that our chicken wasn't quite your style. We're disappointed that you don't feel the price is worth it, but we use all-natural, farm-fresh, humanely-raised, vegetarian-fed chicken, with no hormones or antibiotics, so our chicken is of much higher quality than your traditional fast food spots. We think the quality is worth a few extra dollars, and... More

When I was growing up in Florida my granddaddy would cook corn on the cob while grandma cooked fried chicken. That and her collard greens. Well, at Honey's the little boy in me was very happy. Their corn and chicken were both heaven. Unfortunately, no greens or I might have moved in to their parking lot. Will definitely be going... More

Really super crispy, super juicy flavorful chicken. And also the fried fish - which has a completely different flavor and crust than the chicken (and a BIG piece of fish in the tasters combo - this dish alone was enough for the two of us). The hush puppies were some of the best we've had, but only two per order?... More

The hubby and I went to Culver City to play tourist. We arrived at lunchtime and sought out Honey's Kettle to begin our adventure. We weren't disappointed. The menu is southern down home "fried" chicken, fish or "Kat fish". The mashed potatoes and gravy or Kettle fries (ordered crisp) very yummy and with the sweet biscuit & sweet pickles very... More

Walking around the very upscale neighborhood of Culver City (not far from Sony Studios), I came across Honey's Kettle. I had the blackened catfish with rice and gravy and their signature Corn Off The Cob. I also had a leg of delicious fried chicken and a homemade biscuit. Awesome. The food is so good. Fresh, tasty and reasonable. Would definitely... More

There always seems to be a line, but this is worth the wait. The food is fresh and the fried chicken is superb. The staff does their best to keep things moving along, but great food takes a bit more time. I found the young man at the counter to be especially patient and helpful. The fried chicken is crispy...
