In Georgetown, Texas, we have plenty of customs that we hold close to our hearts. One of those is our food: we like our chicken fried, our tea sweet, and our salad potato, all served with warm smiles and a hearty helping of “y’all.” Like our beautiful town square and sunny, kindhearted residents, it all comes with the territory in the Red Poppy Capital of Texas. Hang your hat, pull up a chair, and enjoy a fresh, home-cooked meal washed down with an icy cold beverage.

    This was a great experience from the moment we walked in. The hostess was friendly and engaging,, our waitress was very good and mostly the food was amazing. We were a party of. 6 so we had a variety of plates- my Nashvilles hot chicken sandwich was awesome , we all loved the fries, the chicken fried steak and chicken and waffles were amazing as well as the fried chicken. I highly recommend this place. We plan on going back to try the breakfast!

    This was our first time to eat at Goodfolks and we’re very impressed overall. Upon arrival and checking in on our reservation we were greeted warmly and shown to our table upstairs. Our server Skylar was extremely helpful in explaining the menu to us and kept tabs on us all throughout the meal. We started with the delicious and generous serving of white pimentos cheese and crackers. Next we shared a full Cesar salad and still had leftovers. My wife had the bone in fried chicken and country mashed potatoes, which was finger licking good (need extra napkins and wipes with the chicken). I had the creole shrimp and andouille sausage etouffee over rice and loved every bite. Make sure to have one of their homemade biscuits with cane syrup, it could be dessert if you wanted. We look forward to returning soon and trying some of the other dishes.

    My second time at Goodfolks was disappointing. I had a lunch reservation and brought a friend who came on my recommendation. We checked in with the hostess who said our table was ready for us. She then seated us upstairs at a small table just outside the bar area by the top of the stairs and in a corner where they kept the dustbin. ! It was nearly empty upstairs, with only a few people eating in the bar and most patrons seated downstairs where there was still plenty of seating and nicer, more spacious tables. It’s a mystery why they sat us upstairs in a corner when we could have been seated at a table in the main restaurant. It felt disrespectful to be seated away in the corner and reflected questionable judgement by the staff. Fortunately, our server was attentive and pleasant. I ordered a chicken salad and added bacon for an extra charge, & there was precious little in the dish. I first thought they had forgotten to add the bacon until I noticed a few crumbles under some pieces of lettuce. The chicken was bland and lacked seasoning. The biscuits were as good as I remembered from my first visit last year with my family. That first visit was a much more fun and inviting experience compared to this second one. Goodfolks should be more thoughtful about seating customers, especially when the restaurant isn’t packed and there are open tables available on their main floor. We didn’t ask to be seated away from people by the bar upstairs; no other customers were brought to any other upstairs tables in the hour we were there. The only other people who came upstairs were staff and bar patrons who chose to sit in that area of the restaurant. If you go to Goodfolks, you might have to specify your seating preference and see if fair treatment will be provided.

    Goodfolks was an excellent experience for me and my family. We celebrated my wife’s birthday, and our server, Hannah, was fantastic. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I will be recommending my friends, family, and colleagues to dine here, and will return too.

    Loud over-served women upstairs made an impression. The chicken tenders were bland. The rest of the food was just OK, nothing special at Goodfolks.

    Our server was great, and the food was served promptly. The Brussel sprouts and chicken/biscuit soup were delicious as well as the burger. The etouffee however had a skin on the top when it was delivered to the table and tasted like it came out of a can and way too salty. The rice was dry too. Overall, it was a good visit, and I would try them again to see how it goes on a second visit.

    The best chicken in town. I would eat here more often and with more friends but they don’t want to go here because of noise level. Too hard to hear each other. Last night was no different even in the half booths where voices ricochet all over the place. It wasn’t even that crowded. There are no soft surfaces to absorb sound and everyone’s conversations can be heard loudly. Please add some sound absorption to walls or partitions between booths or ceilings. There are great, unobtrusive sound absorbing products out there. Look into them and fix this. Folks need to experience your wonderful chicken, but you gotta get them into the restaurant.

    Our waitress was knowledgeable and made great suggestions on drinks and food. The ambiance here is lovely, feels like a cafe out of a movie scene or as if you were in a speakeasy but the room is airy instead of moody. Will definitely be going back here- hats off to the staff and chef over at Goodfolks!

    Waiter may be new. He was polite and knowledgeable. Encourage him to be “much” more attentive to customers. As example I asked to have romulade added to my to go box. He brought me empty container. Had to use what little I had leftover to take home. At least in my way of thinking… bring the customer a filled container. Prolly cost him an extra 10% in tip.

    When we got there for our reservation time, we had to wait 15 min as they figured out how to work their reservation system. Near the hosting station, a vendor was communicating with someone (presumably the manager) about terminating their relationship with the restaurant for some reason. They sat us down upstairs at a tiny table. Our waitress came pretty quickly and brought our water quickly. I went to the restroom to wash my hands, but there was neither soap nor paper towels in the dispenser. I was able to find some paper towels in a closed cabinet, but not sure that was meant for customers. I assume that the wait staff have a seperate bathroom (there was no "employee must wash hands..." sign). Our food came in a reasonable amount of time. The chicken in the chicken & waffles was good, but the waffles were soggy and tasted like they were eggos. The salad was OK, but I should have ordered the dressing on the side because there was way too much in it for my taste.

    Food to table was a little slow, but it was decent. We had two different drinks and they were both terrible! Must have been an off night for the bartender. Overall, a decent experience. Waitress sensed a little annoyance from us and gave us a return coupon, so that was a plus. Not our first time and won't be the last.

    We had a great experience at Goodfolks! It was our first time. Super cute ambiance. The food was so yummy. We ordered the verde salmon and Buffalo chicken gnocchi. Phenomenal! The honey butter biscuits and key lime pie are also worth a mention. Everything was so good. The staff were so nice. It was truly a great night! We will be back for sure.

    Went for brunch and ordered breakfast. Both entrees that we ordered were brought to table with raw eggs - whites very runny. Orders were for over medium and over medium well eggs. Potatoes were barely warm. To credit of server, she immediately offered to get us new eggs. Kitchen needs some quality control.
