The mac & cheese lives up to its reputation. The portion size is enough for 2. Our waitress was very nice and the overall experience was very positive.

Wonderful food and the ambience of the general place was excellent. The chicken was slow in coming and we found the drinks overly sweet.

We visited here while visiting Miami. They had music playing loud but it was no bother to me just putting the information out the for others the vibe was chill it wasn’t very crowded at all.. the traditional five cheese Mac and cheese bowl added chicken and my date had the jerk chicken Mac and cheese we honestly could’ve gotten one bowl and shared it we both had half left. Both bowls could’ve used a little more chicken since it was additional fee for chicken I came across maybe 6-7 pieces of chicken We also had some chicken wings they were very flavorful and good so overall experience was good! I would recommend and I would go again when visiting Miami

Can’t go wrong with any of the Mac and Cheese selections. Their corn bread was some of the best I’ve had. Definitely going back to try other choices

Great atmosphere and very art chic décor, but the mac and cheese stole the show. This was the best mac and cheese I had ever eaten.

My husband and I stayed in Miami for 3 days, but couldn't find any good food, so we ask one if the locals where can we go, and she recommended House of Mac, boy! The food was so GOOD! My husband got the Jerk Mac & Cheese, and I had the chicken and waffles the first time! The food was so good we went twice on SATURDAY, and Twice on Sunday, and had the mac dishes each time! The cornbread is so damn good too! You are doing yourself a disservice by not eating there.

We were visiting the area. Looked up small businesses as we didn’t want a chain restaurant. Despite COVID-19 and despite their A/C being down we ordered and ate outside. Service was fast. Staff friendly & attentive. The lemon pepper wings were very flavorful. Their mango lemonade was fresh! Not from powder mix. (Drum roll pls) - my entree was Jerk shimp and Mac & cheese - OUT-STAND-ING!! Me gonna tell you - POW! -flava-ful the blends of cheeses, CRISPY!-topping thin crust, SURROUNDED with whole shrimp around the edges-Oh gosh!*!*! The 1st bite raised me from my seat!
Big Ups family!*!

Nice people, great music and art. Overpriced. Like other reviews said, it’s odd that the dishes aren’t well timed to come out together. My kid’s vegan Mac took forever so we were done eating just as hers arrived. Crab Mac n cheese was rich and yummy but I question the thick layer of cheese on the top. It’s a lot. Caesar salad came w dressing on the side (?) and was difficult to mix. This place is putting so much single use plastic into the landfill. Plastic utensils?? For $24 Mac and cheese? Just no. Also, be aware gratuity is included like a lot of Miami. I accidentally tipped $26 on a $65 bill. My fault for not watching close. Not like they’re gonna question it.
No alcohol, just lemonade.

We stopped by here while on our honeymoon and I’m so glad we did! The service was top notch and the food and different flavor lemonades were amazing! 🤤 I wish we had one here in NC! Best part about this place is that it’s black owned! I researched black owned restaurants and this was the first to pop up! Finally a place we can come to and enjoy our type of music and eat good at the same damn time! Lol 😂 ❤️

Highly overrated. Your grandmas Mac n cheese would be way better. Wait time to get seated for a reservation was ridiculous. Food wait time was super long. Unorganized. Horrible experience. Will not be going back.

The meal was excellent. The problem was that it took almost an entire hour to get it. Once the waiter checked on it, he told us it would be out in ten minutes. The staff is so friendly and the place has great ambience but the kitchen needs to do better.

The jerk chicken Mac and cheese was amazing! It was super flavorful! The mango lemonade is a must-try. We went for the very-instagrammable seafood Mac and although it was beautiful, it was a bit bland. It’s also a bit of a pain to remove the tails from the shells. The service was great and our servers were sooooo nice! We’ll definitely come back on our next trip through Miami!
