    All four entrees were excellent. Shrimp and Grits were fabulous. So were the collards. One person got the country fried steak and loved it. Also the grilled chicken side dish was good. Graham was the person taking care of us. He was outstanding. Lots of parking.

    As always, New South continues to impress. I have never had a bad dining experience here. The service is always fantastic, the food always delicious, and the prices cannot be beaten. They have something for every palate and appetite. New South is an incredible value given the quality provided. If I could provide more than five stars for value, I would. Highly recommend!

    Pretty disappointed in New South. I know restaurants are having a hard time finding people to work these days but is it asking too much for employees to greet you when you walk in and act like they are glad you are there? It was Christmas Eve and the hostesses looked like they had just rolled out of bed. The waitress obviously didn’t want to be there. She never smiled, asked us how we were, nothing. The food was very average. For almost $200 for 5 people , I expected more. Not even a Merry Christmas from one person. Sadly, I have come to expect this at most restaurants. This is why I rarely eat out anymore. It is a massive waste of money. New South was no different. Will never go back. Ever.

    They do not have honey, mustard or barbecue sauce for their fried chicken tenders that come in the salad they only have ranch. Hope that they can invest in other sauces and flavors. This can expand in highlight the menu

    Like always, a great experience at New South. The drinks were well done. The deviled eggs are always a hit. The lamb shank was outstanding. A flatbread has returned to the menu and it was very nice. Our server was attentive and courteous and everything was paced appropriately.
