  • "The fried chicken was the best I ever tasted. I will definitely go back and try it for brunch. So many good choices of wine and desserts as well."

  • "We hadn't been to SCK for some time but it's just as good as we remembered! It's always a treat to come in for a meal as The Fifth Group catered our wedding and it provides some nostalgia. If it's your first time I highly recommend the Gouda fritters and Fried Green Tomatoes! The only thing lacking this time was the server made our group feel a bit rushed...a little too eager to clear the table after each course. We highly recommend enjoying an evening out at South City!"

  • "This was our first visit. We will definitely return. From the moment we were seated (we did have reservations) until we dragged our satiated bodies out the door-not a single beat was missed. Jason, our server, was polite and knowledgeable. He made great suggestions and explained the menu. We were 4 in our party. We shared the goat cheese fritters, the pimento cheese and the fried green tomatoes to start. The guys had jambalaya, my mother in law had the shrimp and grits and I had the catfish. We each marveled at our food. The beer and wine selections were ample. Alas, no room for dessert. Next time...."

  • "This was our first time at the South City Kitchen. We visited with some out of town friends. Food was very tasty...unusual seasoning combinations that worked together perfectly. Our server, Jimmy, was very warm and knowledgeable. He definitely knows the wine list. We never wanted for anything. His professionalism and passion showed. We plan to return again with other friends."

  • "We were very excited to try South City. Finally decided to go and enjoy an evening there. Started off well! Servers were great! Very attentive and knowledgable. Appetizers were ok but bland. Finally got main courses only to find them extremely bland as well. I ordered the jambalaya and she ordered their "famous" fried chicken. Drinks were great and selection of wine was excellent. Just don't plan to be wowed by the food."

  • "I expected a wonderful dining experience when I had brunch there last Sun. However, it wasn't. The food was only fair to good, the waiter annoyingly talked behind my shoulder (there was space not to), and the noise level was very loud. The person I was dining with thought the food was disappointing as well. My fried chicken was so dry I thought it was a left-over from the previous Sun. There was one outstanding taste experience though: the ice cream on the bread pudding was unbelievably good. Overall: mediocre."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We went with a group of five and the food was as great as always, but the service could have been a bit more polished. Only one guest had wine, but the rest of the table's wine glasses were never cleared away which made it difficult when other drinks showed up. The server definitely seemed overwhelmed and had a difficult time maintaining our table. Like I said, the food was great, but it did not all arrive together and one guest was left without an entrée without an explanation."

  • "The chicken livers first course are reason enough to go back!! This is one of the best restaurants in Vinings, and there are several great restaurants in the area. The service was first rate from the hostess to the server to the GM."

  • "We celebrated Father's Day 2014 at South City Kitchen - Vinings. We had a group of 8 people and we were seated in the semi-private room, which was perfect for us! I was a little disappointed with my food though... I ordered the She Crab Soup and Fried Green Tomatoes (FGT) after reading excellent reviews on both. The soup was little too salty for me, and the FGT's were a little greasy. The good news is the Dads we were celebrating, loved their food. One got the pulled pork and the other, the fried chicken. I was happy because they were happy. And the service and atmosphere were perfect!"

  • "Never a bad moment at South City! Could not ask for any better food or service. Great place to celebrate or just to have a fine drink."

  • "From the moment we walked in the door and spoke with the hostess to our very last bite, excellent service, impeccable attention to detail and delicious food and drink were given to our party. The cocktails were yummy, the fried green tomatoes and mussels were fabulous, the wine our waiter , John, chose for us was perfect and the fried chicken and smoked pork chops were out of this world! We have raved about our dining experience with our friends and family. We will recommend this restaurant again and again."

    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The service was great. Food was really good. I had the flat iron stake. It was very flavorful, but not as tender as I expected. My wife had the fried chicken and greens. We both loved it. The greens were not as good as mom used to make, but they are an excellent upscale version. The fried green tomatoes are a winner."

The food was outstanding, southern comfort food with fresh and mostly locally grown ingredients. We'll definitely be returning soon!"

  • "The food was WONDERFUL and the service was great! Unfortunately, the six people in my party had to pretty much shout at each other the whole time in order to be heard."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Everything was good to very good, not outstanding per se. I have eaten at the midtown location on multiple occasions and I find that the food is consistent. The fried gouda cheese appetizer was sinful and delish a must have if you enjoy CHEESE. The fried chicken is a must have and the the etouffee was also pretty good, lighter and a little more acidic than what I am used to, but good. Our waitress was attentive, but not overly attentive and the overall ambience was pretty airy and nice."
