Southern
New South Kitchen & Bar ia a local chef's hand-crafted modern take on Southern food. Our seasonal, ingredient driven menu spotlights some of the finest ingredients the Carolinas have to offer. We take great pride in supporting family owned farms that embrace sustainable all natural farming methods. All of the beef, pork and poultry we serve are raised with no antibiotics or artificial growth hormones. And all of the seafood is sustainably fished or farmed in the waters of the Carolinas. Whenever possible we purchase our produce from farms surrounding Charlotte. We feel that utilizing as many local products as possible produces a better tasting meal, healthier guests and a stronger community.

    Date night with some pals. As always, Graham was polished in his service without being stuffy. Tried a couple of newer dishes (beef tenderloin with a blue cheese crust and lamb shank). All were delish. A neighborhood gem and one of our favorites. Good to see Scott Snead back behind the bar!

    Food is always outstanding. Service last night was not the best. Waitress took too long to take full order. Service has always been excellent last night not so. We will be back it’s always been our go to restaurant for comfort food.

    Table ready per reservation. Excellent server and food. Never felt rushed. Reasonably quiet but still upbeat atmosphere. (So hard to find a place where you can actually have a conversation these days.) Definitely a go-to place.

    This was my second time visiting the New South Kitchen and Bar and I found the food to be very good. They also have a nice wine, cocktail and craft beer selection. This visit's experience was very good, except for our server's performance. He started off being excellent but after ordering, we saw him very sparsely, including his failing to refill our drinks and an extended wait to get our check.

    My wife and I had an excellent dinner at New South. We shared the sweet potato ravioli appetizer, which was a generous size and very tasty. My wife had the salmon which was a thick cut and grilled, which she enjoyed very much and she usually isn’t much of a salmon person. I had the scallops which was served with faro and greens and a touch of pork belly and it was excellent. We also had outstanding service!

    We love NSK. I had the Heart of eye of round and it was amazing. A little too much gravy for me but otherwise delicious!! The mixed green salad is so good! never disappoints! Of course our server Graham asked about dessert and told us about the pumpkin bread pudding. We shared it and it was so good!!! Its always a pleasure eating at NSK.

    Thanksgiving here was a nightmare. They were so overwhelmed that multiple people that had reservations were leaving. We had a 5:30 and ended up finally grabbing a spot at the bar at 6pm to sit and eat there. We got our appetizer at 6:30 and dinner arrived around 6:50. Every member of the staff was overburdened. As they should have, we saw many drinks, and even meals comp'd for patrons. Unfortunately, as nice and patient and pleasant as we were, none of that effort was made for us. We won't be going back there again.

    Was surprised this was the first time that they attempted this type of service, wait was fairly short, service was adequate at best, it took to long to get order taken and to receive the order, I feel the waitress was doing the best she could with the circumstances she was dealing with. Would I come back YES but not for a holiday dinner

    Great Thanksgiving meal out at a great restaurant. Food was excellent and service was very good - not great only because they were packed for the holiday meal and each staff member was working very hard - but that is ok as not a big deal as they were the ones working on a holiday and not me. Hostess at front was hustling prepping and clearing tables as well as taking care of the many people coming in. Quality of food was top notch and I am looking forward to the leftovers!! Kudos to great management and staff with an excellent attitude!

    New South is a favorite of ours. We've enjoyed the Thanksgiving Buffet several times and decided to try this year's plated Thanksgiving lunch. Our server was just attentive enough and super-kind. The food was amazing! I LOVE their bread pudding; this year it was pumpkin pie bread pudding! We enjoyed our meal and some time to chill together while preparing for the holidays. We've never had a bad meal or bad experience here.

    We love this place. Chef driven restaurant with owner as chef. These guys have changed with the times for. The old days of Dakota to New South. In recent years they have gone a little back to Dakotas with southern style elevated favorites like Blackened Meatloaf, Pot Roast etc! It’s seriously good stuff

    The server visited our table very few times. We were not offered dessert, or coffee. Seemed annoyed when asked to separate the check. It was only the hostess who asked if we enjoyed our meal..as we were leaving. The entre (s) were too salty, salad not fresh, pimento cheese appetizer also too salty and served with potato chip not pita. Food and service failed on this visit.
