The best chicken and waffles in an unassuming harlem location. Perfectly fried chicken, crunchy and juicy. Fluffy waffles and spot on gravy.

Great tasting American cuisine for a good price. I liked the portion sizes and the fact that they give you a scone (biscuit) for a starter!

In the heart of Harlem this is highly recommended if you want excellent southern cuisine. The food is reasonably priced, really tasty and the portions whether appetiser or main are easily enough for two. I had fried chicken wings and mash & gravy. Yummy !!!

The food here is so good. Whenever I am in the city I make it a point to go to Amy's. I used to get the backed chicken and the soul food sides. Now I indulge and get the pecan waffle and a side order of honey chicken wings. Chicken and waffles are the best. The chicken is fried nice... More

The food was very good, the staff very friendly, and the place was decorated with wall paintings of American icons as Martin Luther King jr., Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Muhammed Ali and many more. Very nice place for a breakfast, and our waiter, Tasha, was very helpful and cute. We loved it!

Good eats, a little expensive, but good. There was a line out the door and we ended waiting about 30 min to be seated. Would visit again.
