About the restaurant
Where the water meets the sky, Coastal Fish Company sits on the edge of Hyde Lake in Shelby Farms Park creating a picturesque location for diners to enjoy.

Coastal Fish Company offers a unique fine-dining experience by having the freshest and best sourced seafood prepared in traditional styles and new twists. Want your favorite raw oysters ? Why not try them with one of our many savory sorbets. Care for a key lime pie to end your night on a sweet note? How about opting for the chocolate covered key lime pie to satisfy that chocolate craving. Along with all of the coastal fare, there are also ‘land’ options in both the appetizers and entrees that will satisfy any appetite.

Whether you sit outside in the cozy patio almost touching the lake, inside at the bar area full of energy, or in the dining room at a spacious and comfy booth, you are guaranteed to have excellent service, a wonderful meal, and a beautiful view.

About the restaurant
Aptly named for its locale, Southern Social nestles up to the old Southern Railway’s historic Germantown Depot and sits adjacent to Southern Avenue.

Owners of downtown Memphis’ Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar have opened Southern Social. The top tier fine dining restaurant will reflect the high standards established at Flight.

The restaurant features a chef-inspired menu, offering fresh seafood and prime steaks. Southern Social brings exceptional specialty cocktails and Flight’s award-winning wine selections.

Southern Social is my new favorite spot. The valet service was prompt, the hostess welcoming, and the manager attentive. The waitress provided impeccable service, and the food was outstanding from start to finish, with perfectly cooked dishes and rich, balanced flavors. Highly recommend Southern Social for an exceptional dining experience.

The shrimp potstickers were a great appetizer. I had the grilled tenderloin which was tender, delicious and cooked to a perfect medium rare. My wife enjoyed her scallops. Interesting sorbets, including a red bell pepper flavor. Overall outstanding.

Still our favorite restaurant in Memphis. Best food and service. We would be there more often if we didn’t live 45 minutes away. Reminds me of the NYC Italian restaurants that I miss since moving south. We’ve probably been here a dozen times. We bring friends and family when they come to visit. Always excellent.
