I've never had soul food before and I usually hate corn bread. But I loved the food at Post & Beam. I probably had way too much corn bread, but it's the softest, moistest corn anything I've ever had in my life. We all ordered our own entrees but shared the sides. Mac & Cheese and collared greens were my favorite. The fried chicken was juicy, tender and everything fried chicken needs to be. My only concerns for the night was the inside seating was far too loud - the sound environment is poor so it was impossible to have a conversation. They have jazz nights on the patio, if you want to enjoy jazz with your meal, which seems like an amazing idea but also very loud. One bathroom also, so there's a wait.

The best part of this place are definitely its cocktail drinks. I had a couple of bad experience with the customer service with the waiter hanging up on me while I was trying to make reservations. I also went here for brunch and they ran out of biscuits by 11am. Who runs out of biscuits at a new-age soul food this early?!?!?!

Went here yesterday which was a Saturday. Just a note: They only do brunch on Sundays. They had one egg dish written on the board and then have us lunch menus which was fine - we all ordered lunch. I got the turkey burger which was seasoned very well. The sweet potato fries were also good. My friends had no complaints about their salmon and short rib grilled cheeses but I think didn't get that extra wow factor. I was told the cornbread was very good. The best part to me was the service. We were promptly seated and our orders came out quick. My water never was empty and I drank a lot of it! The waiter was also really friendly and remembered my name :)

It's a nice place shoehorned into a diner sort of space. It's about three times as expensive as, say, Roscoe's (one tip-off: the prices are given paris-style, "12.5" instead of "12.95"). But once you accept those things, the food is quite good, the service is fine, and the vibe is positive. Liz and I went with two 11-year-olds; we ordered one catfish and one chicken, with greens, corn salad, and mac-n-cheese sides, and one piece of cornbread with honeybutter to start. This was just right for two adults and two small preteens. I tasted everything but the mac, and it was all great. Since when do I uncontrollably shovel greens in? I dunno, it appealed to me somehow. The chicken was juicy and had a strong rosemary? dusting. For dessert we all split two brownies (molten, with strawberry bits, ice cream, and other good things). I really liked it, and we'll be back someday.
