We feature traditional specialties including Dry Rubbed BBQ Ribs, Sweet and Sticky Baby Back Ribs, Crispy Southern Fried Chicken, Fried Pickles, and Mac & Cheese that you'll never forget. Our Southern fare is complimented by juicy corn fed Steaks, grilled jumbo Gulf Shrimp with Rosemary Grits, and lighter fare like our Watercress and Praline Salad, and Grilled Salmon with Black Eyed Peas. In addition to our fine cuisine, we offer a full line of draft beers, an extensive list of sipping tequilas, and over 50 of the Country's finest Bourbons.

  • "Very good food, lively atmosphere, good service. Ribs were great, pulled pork sandwich very good. Great location."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The atmosphere of Southern Hospitality was awesome. We were looking for something unique in New York City to dine at. We ordered and got our food not soon after that. It was delicious. My boyfriend and I split a combo meal and were full after. If you like barbeque, I would definitely recommend checking it out."

  • "Very good food and nice mix of tourist and New Yorkers. The drinks were good also and really hit home."

  • "As a Southerner I typically hang out at Cowgirl Hall of Fame in the West Village when I'm in town. However, if meeting friends pre-theater, going down yonder isn't always convenient. That's where SoHosp steps in. Great drinks (despite a minor mishap with the first mint julep I ordered; it was rectified), great food and great service...depending on who your server is. Demetri, a young gentlemen with cool glasses and a great smile was awesome; the young lady my group had the day before? Pretty terrible, as in indifferent to the fact people other than her existed. You can't go wrong with any of the ribs dishes. They are all fantastic. The French fries are really good and you'd be surprised at how often I get terrible French fries in NYC!"

  • "I reserved a table for 5 and received a confirmation from opentable. When my party and I arrived, the hostess could not find my name and I had to pull out my phone to prove that I had reservations. According to the hostess, the restaurant did not accept reservations made less than 24 hours in advance. She was not very friendly initially, but she warmed up to me and eventually got the manager to help find a table -after a 20 minute wait. The back of the restaurant where we were finally seated was empty save for one or two tables. Opentable should make sure to clarify when restaurants have special policies. I was with relatives from out of town that I had not seen in a decade, and this was a stressful situation."

  • "This restaurant is dope! Has that home, southern feeling to it. I love the presentation of the food. The food is EXCELLENT! Mimosas are pretty awesome too. Our waitress was the best! I celebrated my moms bday here & she loved it! P.s the moonshine is wooooohooooooo gooooddd!"

  • "I thought I was making reservations for another restaurant so I was disappointed from the start. The food was mediocre (my ribs were dry and the cole slaw was hardly seasoned). The bartender was friendly, though, and the drinks were generous."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This restaurant came highly recommended to us, it's a cool set up and ambience is great. We got ribs why would you go there and get anything else, they were over cooked dry and served Luke warm..the service was great drinks good variety but I wouldn't go back! "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "I had a delicious salad with tasty grilled chicken, but everything I saw come out of the kitchen looked amazing...nachos, Mac and cheese, BBQ, fried pickles!! I would definitely go back and men will love this place because of the food and bar with sports on tv! Good hangover brunch!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "What a disappointment. The food was blah brisket was cold Mac and Cheese was bland which I find impossible since it had so much cheese on top. My daughter had the pulled pork which she said was good but her mashed potatoes were in her words "Disgusting" so I asked for a another side which took twice as long as the original food order. But that's not the worse part. Our server Lori was the worse she sauntered past or table more times than I can count without checking on us. Needless to say she didn't hesitant to check herself out in the mirror every time she passed it. And as I type this I have been waiting at least 20 mins for our check. So I went up to the bar to get someone to bring our check. So sad. Am I leaving a tip HELL NO. "

  • "My wife and I like comfort food so I knew this would be a great place from the description. We showed up a bit early of our reservation and they had no problem seating us. When we sat down and looked at the menu we had a hard time deciding what we wanted because we wanted pretty much everything. We settled on the pulled pork sandwich and brisket combo. It was amazing! The drinks we got were sweet tea because we are from the south and we approved of them. Very good food and service. We talked and enjoyed ourself without feeling rushed for our seats as business picked up after 9pm. We would definitely go again and we will definetely recommend to friends!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "everything was average as expected. the staff was very friendly but not the most attentive. The ribs and brisket were a little dry, the collard greens and fried chicken need to be completely re done, the mac n bacon and grits were excellent. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Went in for brunch and was glad I decided to come here. Reservation was a big help, kind of noisy but it was crowded. Food was amazing! Bottomless mimosas are a huge plus. Great for a sunday afternoon, will definitely be back."

  • "Booked for Mother's Day Brunch based on the promise of live bluegrass. We were seated in the back and when we arrived there were no musicians at all. They were playing on our way out but we couldn't have heard them over the contemporary indie pop playing in the back. Food was "meh" service was "meh" and overall I wouldn't bother coming here again unless I was right outside and literally couldn't make it another step without sustenance. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Took my wife for Mother's day and she love it. Mac n cheese, pulled pork and bbq ribs are so good. For those that say it's a little pricey, try going to these really fancy restaurants and see how much food you get. Only negative is the decor; don't quite get it."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "If you want to try a real southern bbq, you must visit them! All the meats (pork, beaf and chicken) are so tender and full of flavor, that you can say: it´s a party in my mouth! Strongly recommended!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The food was outstanding, just as it was the first time I ate there. However, the reason for my return visit was for an item on the drink menu. The Electric Lemonade was something I had talked about since my first visit. I was so upset to learn it was no longer on the menu! Also, the first time I dined, we had ordered shots of 901 and it came in a LARGE shot glass; so large we had to take sips of it instead of just taking the shot. My friend ordered this shot again, only to be disappointed that the shot came in a below-average size shot glass. Not quite sure what happened there... but otherwise, a good experience and I will be back again. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Food was a let down. Service was okay. The Mac-N-Cheese was too starchy. The mash potatoes bland. The brisket solid but the ribs were on the dry side. Good atmosphere and friendly staff."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "The food was good but nothing special. The noise level was quite high so it was somewhat difficult to have a quiet conversation. The margaritas were quite good as was the service. A decent value and better than the real touristy places closer to the theater district."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I have heard a lot of great things about Southern Hospitality so I decided to take my Fiancee there for a birthday brunch to start the day. We both enjoyed the food. The food was delicious and the mimosas were tasty. Our server Riley made sure our glasses were never empty. He asked for some substitutes for in his meal and Riley made sure it was taken care of. It wasn't too crowded and we had great seats by the big window. The live blue grass music was a nice touch."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The service was great. The staff was attentive. The food was just barely ok. My husbands fried chicken was taseless. He said KFC has more flavor. My brisket was tender, but they just drizzled a little bbq sauce on the top piece. The rest was naked. The greens were so salty I couldn't eat them. We were in the backroom so it seemed less busy and we were able to hold a conversation. We are Long Islanders. We like to try differenct restaurants when we come into the the city. If we like it, we add to our list of "Must do Again". Don't think we'll be going back."

  • "One word description is "overrated". We made reservations and was quickly seated a Sunday afternoon. The waiter we was OK but inattentive at times. The food was nothing special. Fried chicken tacos were less equivalent to McDonald's McWraps. Who serves tacos without cheese, salsa, or avocado? The fried chicken platter was not crispy and not marinated enough to be considered southern cooking. The disco tots did not enough cheese and gravy was bland. The coleslaw was also bland. The lemonade could have caused diabetes. The good thing was the live band, the ambiance, and the appetizers. The fried green tomatoes and bacon mac and cheese rolls were really good. The nutella sundae was delish. I'd go here for appetizers, dessert, and drinks."

  • "Had Easter brunch there. Male host was extremely nice and accommodating when I said we'd be late for our reservation. Nice little restaurant. Food came out quick. Bacon was great, Dad loved his French Toast. Biscuits and gravy your typical average, like everywhere else. Mom didn't like the coffee. Our waitress was very impersonal. Definitely didn't seem to want to be there. Busboys were much more attentive. Overall I think it's an average place. I've heard they have great Mac & Cheese. Maybe I'll try the lunch or dinner menu next time. "

  • "a kids mac n cheese could fit in the palm of my hand so we got the adult portion, which is double the kids portion. Could not believe how little food for over $16! Didn't even come with ANY side! Kids did not like as is very heavy and very cheesy. Cobb salad boring - nothing special philly cheese appetizer was best of the 4 meals "

  • "Had a lovely brunch with my son and bottomless Mimosas! Bracket, our waiter, did an excellent job of checking on us regularly and refilling our drinks. Food was delish."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "We went purely because JT created this restaurant. The bartender in the downstairs lounge was HORRIFIC. She was so rude and couldn't handle being at the bar alone. The rest of the downstairs is cozy and nice place to wait for your reservation to get called. You definitely need a reservation here though. The food was just ok, the mashed potatoes were definitely fake and I could taste Teflon in them. The cornbread is to die for though! I would come back here just for the cornbread with honey butter. YUM! Overall, I felt super rushed. Our food was out within 10 minutes of ordering which I always find suspect and our dining experience came to a close after about 35 minutes. Won't be coming back."

  • "Great service. But the ribs just don't live up to what they should be: savory and tender. I added BBQ sauce to my dry rub ribs to eat them."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Overall the experience was ok. We waited for our table about a half hour despite having a reservation, however, the staff was very communicative & nice about it. The food was not bad but nothing to write home about. Philly egg rolls were the best thing we ate. Otherwise ribs were dry & collard greens were beyond salty. That said bottomless mimosas for $15 during brunch hours is nothing to complain about. The scene was energetic & fun- good for big groups who aren't looking for anything too high quality."

  • "First time going to the restaurant and fell in love. The food was all fantastic. We ordered Chicken and Waffles, Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese, and an appetizer of BBQ chicken. Everything was seasoned well and cooked to perfection! The chicken itself was not dry and very juicy and the mac & cheese was no overwhelming with flavor. The food here is great and the service is amazing. Can't go wrong."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "I didn't like the fish tacos. My daughter didn't care for her barbeque pulled chicken. Nacho appetizer was ok. The server never came back to ask us how our food was. I had to flag her down to get a refill on my soda. The guys clearing the plates provided much better service than the waitress."

  • "I'm always weary when celebs open restaurants of how the food will be. However, I have to say that the food here was really good. I had the pulled pork, mac and cheese and cornbread. The meat was good. The cornbread ws delicious! The staff was subpar. The watiress was not very attentive and I don't think checked on us more then once. We all had emptry water glasses and I had to ask for mine to be refilled. I waitress, so I know good staff when I see it, this wasn't it."
