When I want fish, catfish, this is one of the 2 best places in all of Chattanooga. I definitely think this is some of the best home cooking around.

I didn't take this as a good sign of the quality of the food. Was I wrong! Everything we had was great. It's rare that I don't have... More

We have eaten there 3 times in the last 2 visits to Chattanooga and have not been disappointed once. The portions were very generous. Was not impressed with the peach cobbler, but... More

The best soul food ever! Herman's catered my wedding several years ago. We had several out of town guest that still compliment our food to this day. Working with this staff on my special day was perfect, and it's still perfect when we stop in one in a while. I just had the baked chicken, green beans and Mac and... More

My order was Roasted BBQ Chicken with fried green tomatoes and mashed potatoes with gravy. The best part about this meal was the BBQ sauce and it wasn't even all that special. My husband had the Roasted Lemon Pepper chicken and although he ate it, I wouldn't had been able to. The MAC and cheese he had was ok. The... More

I eat here often and the food is always good with generous portions. The red velvet cake, lemonade, and tea are must haves! Friendly staff and good prices

I enjoyed an excellent catfish dinner here at Herman's Soul Food and Catering. The portions were delicious as well as generous, the service excellent, and well-priced. This is the place to go if you're seriously hungry.

This is some down home country cooking! Awesome food. HUGE portions and a great value. Two people ate for $25 and that included tip. It was enough food for 3-4 people.
