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.

We had the mixed green salad with fried chicken and the blackend meatloaf. Both were really delicious. We had the apple crisp for sdesssert and it was also very, very good. NSK never disappoints! Our server Emily is always great! This is one of the best places to go to in south Charlotte.

From the reception desk to the chef to the mixologist to the servers, New South never fails to impress and delight us. Always a great spot for date night or a great spot for a business lunch.

Food was not as good as usual. Steaks were undercooked, chicken was dry and oysters were rubbery. Service was slow. Perhaps he was new?

New South is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. I like that the food comes from local farms and producers. Plus, you can get Clemson cheese here! Great spot to hang out and eat!

There to celebrate my birthday. The food was amazing. I had the chicken and waffles. I loved the cheddar chives in the waffle with the spicy jelly. Waffle was so light and fluffy. Chicken fingers were delicious on the gravy. It’s a farm to table restaurant and you can taste the difference. Our server was great. I definitely look forward to visiting this restaurant again soon.

We met for our Christmas celebration and were greeted at the door to new decor and ambiance. Most pleasant. Our first visit since COVID quarantine and it was wonderful to be back to the same spectacular food as prior. We had an outstanding meal and were not pressed to rush and leave so we’re able to enjoy a glass of wine and “visit”. Thanks to the owners for keeping their standards during this difficult time.

We arrived at New South during the early afternoon and we were greeted at the door. There was a loud large party obviously have a good time, with refreshingly happy sounds. The restaurant was short staffed like every other restaurant at this time. Staff was attentive without being intrusive during a longer than expected wait. The young man that served our water kept us informed of the progress of our brunch and reasons for the delay - not excuses. We were supplied with biscuits during the wait! The food was delicious - biscuits, deviled eggs, and butternut squash soup - all sourced from local farms. My husband had a mushroom + omelet and the best grits I’ve ever tasted. New South is on my list for when my family comes into town in February. We both enjoyed the experience.

Great service and perfect meal the burger here is fantastic. So are the fries. We were missing the fried okra since we didn't get the salad so we ordered as a side. So, so good. Our server did a great job as well. One of my favorite places

We ordered four different appetizers to get started and I could have eaten each one as a meal-absolutely delicious! Apparently they have a rotating menu and I couldn’t make up my mind on an entree. (I looked up the menu before arriving and was really stuck on what I “thought” they offered.) I ended up ordering the burger with grits as a side and both were amazing. I couldn’t leave without trying the fried blueberry and again, I was NOT disappointed. I can’t wait to return.

The Thanksgiving meal was perfect in all the ways we would expect from New South: food quality, flavor, temperature, portion size and presentation. Mixologist had some inspired creations, as well. Graham served us without flaw and did not appeared to be rushed or rushing us on a usually packed holiday meal offering. Could not have been more pleased.

Thanksgiving Day lunch was very good. The turkey was cooked perfectly and the serving portion was generous. The stuffing and sweet potato casserole were both good but portion size was very small. Collard greens were also good. The oyster soup appetizer and apple crisp and ice cream dessert were both exceptional.

The food here is always excellent with a Southern vibe. Chris, chef and owner, is always creating new dishes tweaking favorites such as pot roast, salmon, chicken, etc. My favorite side is succotash. I eat here as often as possible. I love to support local, family businesses and this is truly one of those.

The food is amazing. If you like farm to table southern food at reasonable prices, then this is your place. I had the blackened catfish with a side of succotash and collards (our server was very confused). Both sides were good but the collard greens were better than my mother’s and that is saying a lot! Unfortunately our server was not very good. He was having a bad day / night. But iffy service or not I will definitely be back for the outstanding food.
