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.

Excellent experience. We sat on the patio on a hot and muggy day but the temperature was comfortable due to the fans and shade.

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.

This was our first time at Southern Social. We had a steak, scallops, and redfish. All were delicious! We enjoyed the wine flights.

We enjoyed a quiet dinner with impeccable service and wonderful food. The spinach Alfredo chicken pizza is absolutely the best pizza I’ve eaten. The pork chop is also a winner choice.

The food was fantastic! We ordered the salmon and the shrimp and grits with a side of Brussel sprouts. We ordered the citrus fried because our server recommended them. They were amazing! Maybe the best part of the meal! The restaurant was a great place for us to be able to talk and sit without being rushed. We had an 8:00 reservation and were seated within 5 minutes of arrival. Overall, it was a great experience and I will definitely be returning.
