Went in for Sunday brunch. Food is super tasty and service is great! One suggestion - add option of coffee and side of eggs, bacon (a few breakfast options) for brunch. It would be great if those were added to menu. Otherwise, you might as well call it lunch.

50Kitchen is an awesome quaint little spot. I will definitely be returning there. Be warned, that Honey Fried Cornbread is sinful...... Excellent above and beyond service.

This place is pretty solid when it comes to food, definitely need to come back and try other options! Though it wasn't the liveliest place for an indoor dinner, the service was great and staff was friendly.

Yvette and Chef Anthony Caldwell have created a hidden gem. This is a small neighborhood joint with food that you’d find at a five star dining restaurant.
Everything on the menu is fantastic! They have a small menu but it makes sense to specialize in a few things and do them extremely well. I love the shrimp and grits but the ribs are amazing as well. You must try the cornbread. I’ve never had better. Eat at 50Kitchen you won’t be disappointed.

Food was so delicious and the staff very friendly! Also I’m used to large portions where I am never able to finish my food but the portion sizes were perfect! Definitely have to go back and try the lunch/dinner menu.

While waiting for our food, one of the wait staff brought out the honey fried corn bread and they were AMAZING! The chicken and waffles were delicious. My husband got the half rack (crispy style) with collard greens and kimchi, and the Asian slaw. They were yummy. The owner, Anthony Caldwell stopped by and we chatted for a bit. He’s so nice, and everyone was welcoming. We will definite at here again (at least once a week if we lived closer).

My friend and I LOVED our first trip to 50Kitchen! It was Mother's Day and they were pretty crowded (it's a small space with a handful of tables indoors and another handful outside), so we had to wait a few minutes for our reserved table outside. The service was a little slow (again, they were busy), but the waitresses and the rest of the staff were super nice and the food was DELICIOUS, which more than made up for the short wait. We had the honey cornbread, the shrimp and grits, the banh mi sandwich, and sweet potato fries, and everything was absolutely amazing! (And there are sooo many other items on the menu that I am dying to try still....) The ambiance on the outdoor patio is really nice too - they have a high wall separating the seating area from the street, so it was not too loud. We barely even noticed the traffic noises except for when a fire truck or ambulance went by. We will definitely be coming here again! Highly recommend!

Awesome AWESOME food!! We went on Mother’s Day when it was super crowded and they still made it a smooth engagement. The servers were sweet and polite and made sure we didn’t wait too long. The food was all delicious and even our three little picky eaters LOVED it! Chef Anthony even made sure to personally greet and wish each table a happy holiday before they left. One of the best Mother’s Day because we ALL know how service can get on that day in some restaurants lol

Very friendly staff - nice neighborhood place. We ordered chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits. Both great. The cornbread was outstanding. We placed one order of cornbread to start and towards the end of our meal we were still talking about the cornbread so we placed another order for cornbread to go. It was that good! Can’t wait to come back.

First off, this place is more of a takeout/eat-in spot as opposed to your traditional restaurant with a dedicated wait staff. Don’t be misled by the fact that they are on open table and take reservations. With that expectation set, the food here is phenomenal and worthy of multiple visits. The chef here is very humble and even made an appearance to see how we were enjoying our meal, and please believe that it was thoroughly enjoyed.

Absolutely Amazing! Everything at this restaurant is top notch including the executive chef. We ordered multiple items off the menu and not a single one was disappointing, they were all DELICIOUS!! We drove 45 minutes to try 50kitchen and we will be making the drive a lot more often. I highly recommend 50Kitchen and suggest you try it out no matter how long the drive!

The chef takes care to have an authentic flavor reminding you of a true southern comfort food. The food is made upon your order so your plate is hot, fresh off the stove. The service is friendly and attentive.

Clearly this place is popular as it fills up pretty fast. Which has the potential to delay orders a little but well worth the wait.

It was recommended by open table for outdoor patio dining. Umm you do no service, open table, to misrepresent an otherwise great restaurant by doing that. “Patio dining” was a wooden platform on the street. A busy street. With noise and fumes.
We ended up taking it out to go. Food is EXCELLENT and will be back for more. Especially the shrimp and grits. Perfect.
But please. Get it together open table with what you categorize as patio dining winners.

This place was AMAZING. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly throughout the evening and were very attentive despite being a little busy. The food though!! Everything we ordered was delicious, will definitely be back to try other items on the menu. The story behind 50Kitchen is very inspiring as well, really appreciate the owner and head chef's willingness to share the deeper meanings behind the restaurant and behind every dish. Gotta check this place out.

I heard wonderful things about 50Kitchen and chef-owner and I am so glad we came! We ate outside which was nice- a bit noisy but that is to be expected w. traffic etc. My friend had the barbecue ribs which she loved. Had to bring some home as she was full. I had the fried chicken with waffles. I could not eat all the waffles - they were huge. Chicken was excellent and so were the accompanying sauces. We definitely plan to come back and try other choices on the menu. Salmon looks enticing!
