Had a wonderful work brunch on a Saturday morning. I enjoyed the Trip Platter—and all three were heavenly. The platter was complemented with pickled sides and sliced tomatoes.
We spent some time with our server, Kelsey, who was such a courteous and professional, kind gal.

We will be back to New South (in the Arboretum.)

See you next time!

Our waitress Summer was awesome. This was our first time here but our friends who joined us had been several times before. The flounder was fabulous. My husband had the fried chicken and really enjoyed it.

Delicious meal and great service at New South Kitchen & Bar on Saturday night. I had the roasted NC flounder and squash casserole. My husband had the chicken pasta and a house salad. Generous portions and good price. The wine list is very good too. We had excellent service from our server. We will keep New South on our list of favorite places.

Had the Fried Okra Salad with Fried Chicken. Love it. Best salad in town.
More importantly, I had the Dirty Bird martini. I'm pretty picky about my dirty martinis and let me say this one was absolutely perfect. Just perfect.

We went for Father’s Day Brunch. The menu was varied and selections we made were all delicious!! Fried okra was great! Burger with pimento cheese was also a big hit. Chicken and waffles are as another goodie. My family lives this place and they are super friendly here and always good service.

We hadn’t been to New South in several years. The decor is nothing special but I can totally understand restaurants not looking to renovate after this last year and a half. The food was very good. I had an omelet and grits, both piping hot, and they stayed hot. The stoneground grits were creamy and soft, really perfectly cooked. My husband got the fried green tomato Benedict which was also perfectly done and delicious. The biscuits for the table were also really good. I’m gluten free, but couId tell by looking that the biscuits had an excellent texture and my husband enjoyed them. I wish more restaurants had more GF options like biscuits or bread for the table, but New South did have a reasonable selection of GF dishes, which is one reason I made a reservation there. I think we will go back!.
