Diner Reviews
  • "The food was very tasty and offered a nice combination if flavored. The staff was attentive, but the waiter seemed disappointed that we were not ordering drinks or dessert. The atmosphere was nice; a little quiet for my tastes. Our only issue was that there were a couple of entrances, whose use prevented the inside from being as cool as we prefer. Kids meals were nice portions and nicely priced. The kids chicken fingers were especially good."

  • "First time here. After reading the reviews, I thought we should give it a try. Our waitress had little personality and keep forgetting the basics. Water refills, new silverware after she had taken ours. The killer was when she brought our bill and we weren't finished dining. Management needs to go back to school. And train the wait staff."

  • "In season this was a favorite but their summer chef and staff must be temporary as they are terrible. No bread & butter served. When I finally got the waitress attention she said b&b was on request. Fish entree I ordered was overcooked and very dry while the accompanying potatoes were undercooked and half raw. After dinner coffee tasted like it was in the pot for hours. Waitress never once checked on us; had to flag her down and get her attention for anything we needed. I was out to dinner 3 evenings this week at this and 2 other comparable restaurants. Other restaurant checks averaged $35/person (with coupons). My $50 dinner here (no coupon) was my most expensive but absolutely the worst."

  • "We took a chance on a recommendation to try South FOrk and found we loved it. Food and drink was pleasantly presented and the ambience was cozy and fun. looks like a great place for after-work or a weekend meal."

  • "Back when this place used to be called The Grape I used to love coming here. It was so hard to give up on it that I kept coming in even after they changed the name/menu and the service went down the drain. This time was my last effort, however. We had a horrible server who never checked on us – to refill the drinks, ask if we need something, etc… He was not friendly at all, spoke to us like he was annoyed with our existence. We asked for a check and had to wait forever. After we finally got our check we saw that he charged $60 for a $48 bottle of wine. Again, it took him a long time to fix it and he never apologized. With the “meh” food on top of the bad service, this place is definitely never getting my business again."

  • "Stopped by for a quick lunch. It sounded better that it was. We both got specials. My blackened tuna sandwich with avacado, etc. was good, but the paper this slices of tuna just wasn't what I was expecting, although I appreciated the nice salad with it instead of fries! My partner got a special of grouper with vegetables and fingerling potatoes. The potatoes were probably the best thing. A very skimpy piece of grouper with little seasoning."

  • "My husband and I looked forward to our evening at South Fork. Since I had commented on Open Table that it was our anniversary, we were greeted with two glasses of champagne. I had Seared Scallops and my husband the Grouper, which he chose to have blackened. We both really enjoyed the food. The downside was that I was very uncomfortable with the air temperature. I asked twice to have the air turned cooler, that I had already taken off my jacket and I was still perspiring. The answer was that I was lucky not to be on the other side where there was a table of 10 and they could do nothing for us. The server was attentive to our order, but our water glasses were never refilled. I'd go back, but not in the summer!"

  • "Everything was great and we had a great time. Service (Jessie) could not have been better, truly exceeded our expectations. Food was perfect and just right portions. Happy Hour is the best deal in town. We will be back soon."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Wonderful appetizers during happy hour and $ 3.25 glasses of wine. South Fork only serves beer and wine and has a wide selection. The grouper with peach salsa on sweet potatoes was delicious and our waiter, Shawn, who happens to be the manager was terrific."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Food was OK but not as great as it was a few weeks earlier. Same item ordered but it was not as good as the previous time. Whatever the reason we will not be rushing back."

  • "We were blown away by the number of appetizers available on the happy-hour menu and the ridiculously low price. he accompanying wine was excellent and again at a bargain price."

  • "This was our 2nd visit here & it was just as great as our 1st. We didn't realize we were there early enough to partake in their half price wine & appy specials & were we lucky. Our main courses (3 different for 3 guests) were all superb. Keep doing what you're doing South Fork as we will pay you a visit each time we're in SW FL!"

  • "Recently changed owners......the food is so GREAT!!! Needs a bit of time to get completely transformed with new owners, but, well on the way!"

  • "This is a gem hidden at Coconut Pointe. We have been in several times and each time enjoyed a really great meal. I had grouper that was prepared with a wrapping of prosciutto, over parmesan risotto, and was divine. Serving was large enough to bring 1/2 home to enjoy the next day. Server was attentive. Very nice dinner for two. "

  • "South Fork Grille is a terrific restaurant. There is a special menu each night in addition to the regular menu. There is also a great Happy Hour menu. The serving are almost enough for a meal. The service is always among the best we get anywhere."

  • "The short rib was awesome!!! And Paul our server was great"
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "We were very pleased with South Fork Grille. We were a party of 6 and were seated inside (chilly outside). We were able to substitute items from our dinner choices without an up charge. Some had the short ribs which were so tender you could cut them with your fork. Others had scallops which were equally as tasty. We are definitely going back. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Out reservation was for 6pm Good Friday. They had record of our reservation, seated us promptly at a well placed table. The place was PACKED! Tables were very close together, with many glass walls, making the place very noisy. My companion and I practically had to scream at each other to be heard. My steak was well-flavored with a demi glaze, but was med.-rare, instead of medium. My companion had an upscale Italian pasta, gnocchi with meat sauce, which she liked. Serving sizes were generous. We did not have any alcohol, as both of us were driving later. All in all, a pleasant experience under sub optimal holiday conditions."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Had a great meal. The wine was excellent. The salad was large and tasty. The seared grouper special was the best I ever had. Our waiter was very helpful. Overall everyone raved about there food. Would highly recommend."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "This was our first visit. Quite an appealing place with an attractive wine bar. Seating is limited which gives a somewhat intimate feeling. It has a small menu but with good variety. Bouillabaisse was on their specials list. It was as good as I've ever had. Our waiter recommended a wine that was very good with our meal. My wife had a gluten free pasta dish that she really enjoyed. We are looking forward to dining here again. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "We enjoyed good food in a restaurant located in a shopping mall. We were seated in the larger dining room where the noise level was relatively high and we could overhear conversations at the near table. Service was a bit abrupt and not a terribly friendly server. Im not sure we will return."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "We had another really nice meal. My fiance chose the tile fish and I had salmon. Both were cooked perfectly and pared with flavorful sides. Our server gave good suggestions about the meal and wine parings. We will definitely be back again and again."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We have many reasons why we like South Fork. It is close to home. One of the better restaurants in Coconut Point Mall. Nice servers. The food is always cooked to perfection, and the wine list has many choices for a smaller place. My husband has the scallops over risotto which looked wonderful to me and tasted wonderful to him. I had the pappardelle with seafood. I usually don't order pasta out but the pappardelle was calling my name. It was cooked right and the seafood was generous. No room for dessert but they had interesting choices on the menu."

  • "I think the special fish dish of the evening was slightly oversold, meaning that the quality was not as good as recommended. The evening was 3/23. Everyone else's food was delicious and the dining experience was good."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We always enjoy South Fork, however this particular experience was a huge disappointment. Service was wonderful and very apologetic. My meal was absolutely awful, both times. I ordered the filet, which is usually wonderful, it was served almost raw and the mashed potatoes were ice cold. It was warmed and reserved, way over done. We started from scratch and the second filet was just as bad, the meat was tough, chewy and so full of grizzle you could hardy cut or chew it and the potatoes were 'almost' warm. A combo of the new chef and poor quality of filet... Good thing for the good wine!"

  • "My husband and I dined with another couple for the first time at Southfork Grille and we were all pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, the service was great, and if you like wine they have an amazing list."

  • "South Fork Grille is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always terrific and they are happy to accommodate any special requests. They have outstanding specials and a terrific Happy Hour menu. The staff gives great service and the owners are there to make sure everything runs smoothly. They are so nice and always ask if the food is fine. Of course it is. I recommend South Fork Grille to people all the time."

  • "The atmosphere is perfect for either sitting outside or in. Wait staff is attentive and the food is always well prepared and delicious. I had salmon, my husband had a strip steak and we both enjoyed every bite. We had to ask for the Happy Hour menu which is available up until 6:00. It offers half off wines and little bites of various dishes. All were enjoyable."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I had been to SFG a few times in the past and had good meals but my most recent dinner was exceptional! My salad was one of the best I have had in years. It was fresh, flavorful, perfectly dressed in a delicious dressing and a generous portion. My dinner was also delicious, as was my husband's. We did not have a great table but it still was a good experience!"

  • "When I say cool, think 60 degrees, windy, dark and sitting in a mall parking lot. My wife requested outdoor dining which is on the sidewalk next to the parking lot at the mall. I asked the receptionist if they had heaters and she said yes. I forgot to ask if they had propane, so when we arrived we found out they had no propane! They also ran out of coffee cups, and a few other items. I would go someplace else, or make sure you call and ask the right questions ..before you get there."
