I love New South let me start by saying that, I am a long time patron...dating back to Dakota's.
One thing i noticed and loved right away, the menu has changed a little but not by what is being served but how the food is prepared...change is a good thing. Old time favorites like the Meatloaf is still on the menu but with a twist.....Awesome selection, outstanding food.
Two things i noticed that i did not like...One, you cannot choose your cheese for the cheese plate any longer, which i am not even mad because i know why that had to happen...but the cheese selection was not good at all. It was pretty terrible! Two, a long time patron that comes in and waives at everyone and everyone knows, with my husband....on obvious a date night out gets sat right next to a huge group of small children, screaming and literally throwing food...come on host guy...get it together! He changed his mind three times before telling the seater where to put us which makes me think...hmmm where was he going to put us? Had to be better then where we ended up! Learn to read people!! Regardless....I'll be back...

The food was wonderful. I have a 3 month old who has a dairy allergy and they accomadated for the allergy. The server George spoke with the chef and let me know what items would be safe. It was very nice to be able to spend valentines out with my husband and know My daughter wouldn’t end up with a reaction!

Food was great! Great ambience. Service in general was a little slow but our waitress in particular was a little odd. She overshared that she had split a bottle of liquor with her boyfriend the night before— just kind of odd.

It was our first time trying this place. I had the Heritage Pork Shank with Brussels Sprout and my Wife had the Lemon Roasted Chicken Breast, both were very good! Recommend both as a must try! Had the Fried blueberry pie and the Beignets for dessert. The Beignets were light, fluffy and sugar rolled. The fried pie was good with a delicious blueberry filling.
As a side note I would recommend the Beignets with the blueberry filling as a dipping option.

Our meal was somewhat average. We were however taken back by the charge of the Bourbon that my husband ordered. It was extremely high compared with comparable restaurants in the Charlotte area. The biscuits that were brought to our table were cold. My husband ordered the grilled meatloaf and he said it was dry. I ordered the shrimp and grits and they were very yummy! Not sure we would choose to return given the number of restaurants in the area to choose from.

The noise level in the seating area on the bar side is a bit on the high side and more booth options would be nice.

New South Kitchen has become our favorite "go to" restaurant. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food. Love the innovative twist on many of the traditional Southern dishes! My beau loves the meatloaf; I'm partial to the butternut squash salad! And the biscuits! Yum!!

I searched Open Table for last minute reservations the day before Christmas Eve and New South Kitchen and Bar had a vacancy during our desired time. Boy did we luck up! The food was absolutely outstanding! Everyone in our party chose a different meal and we all loved every bite. My favorite was the collard greens. They were cooked the perfect southern way! The restaurant is in the Arboretum Shopping Center and I never knew it was there. We will definitely be back. The drive from Rock Hill is worth it. You have to check it out!

I've been patron a of NSK for a long time because mainly it's a farm to fork . The food has consistently been good, using local farmers, which I'm a strong proponent. After my last visit, I've decided I'm not returning because your restaurant is very dirty, outdated and in dire need of an upgrade! The bathrooms are gross and there's always one toilet out of order. The hallway going to the bathrooms is unsightly and dirty as well. It's a storage area which customers should not be subject to. The carpet is filthy and needs replacing. The booths and decor need updated as well. The newer section with the bar is still nice, but again the older original section needs some serious attention. One last issue, several times I have been in after 5:00 pm and the special of the night is still not available for the server to announce to the table. This latest visit was the worse delay I had experienced. By 5:30, the server was still unable to give us the special of the night. The explanation on both of the these occasions were - the chef is still working on it! By that time the special should be available to the customer! Something is awry there - prep - organization - communication ??? Oh, by the way, the server never did offer us the special! I hope these issues will seriously be heard because NSK is a long time establishment and it would be disheartening to see these chronic issues be the demise of the future.

The food is generally quite good and well priced. Our service was not what we expected though. The waiter appeared annoyed that he had to wait on us, asked me to hand him dishes when I was trying to eat and had to be asked 3 times to bring butter to our table. The butter finally arrived after we had finished everything but the mashed potatoes that required the butter. We have always had excellent service in the past so we were quite surprised by this experience.

We consistently enjoy New South. We love that they have local grass-fed beef in their burgers, we really love their deviled eggs appetizer, and the restaurant is just very comfortable (from lighting to noise level to seats). We like their good comfort foods (like shrimp and grits or pimento cheese burgers or collard greens) & appreciate their GF menu (which you need to ask for). One of our favorite local restaurants in South Charlotte.

I'm conflicted; some elements were great while others disappointing. I booked for Thanksgiving evening more than a month in advance. The day before the reservation, I noticed that the stated closing time was right after our reservation so we showed up early, concerned they would stop supplying the buffet mid-meal. When we arrived, they advised they could not set us for 30+ minutes, even though I saw several empty tables, so we decided to eat at the bar, even though that meant getting hit with chilly air every time someone opened the door. The buffet meats were good, sides excellent, soups just okay, and salad would have been find except the unlabeled dressing ended up being some kind of orange vinaigrette which had an off-putting taste that did not go well with the other ingredients. About halfway through our meal, they cleared away the salad bar entirely--ok since neither of us liked it. A bit later, we saw employees unloading the main buffet food into take-home boxes, presumably for themselves. That's totally fine, and I hope they enjoyed, though it did re-emphasize the fact that we were wise to show up early and forego a real table because if we had waited until our actual reservation, we would have been out of luck. The real disappointment was at the end. All the employees were very friendly, which we found to be a delight. However, after I had rendered my credit card for payment, the server brought it back advising that gratuity had already been added. Almost all tipping etiquette guides recommend that tipping for buffet, when the server really just brings drinks, should be around 5 to 10%, though I always leave more, and would have been happy to leave more on Thanksgiving. However, for our party of 2, we were assessed a mandatory tip of 20% without asking us in advance. That was mentioned nowhere on the website (I checked several times), nowhere on OpenTable, nowhere in the confirmation call, and nowhere in person until after we had been charged. Bad ending.

I went for Thanksgiving. I thought Cracker Barrel was better and for a lot less money. It was nice not to cook but it was $50 a person and the food was not on par for the price. I also thought the food wasn't very hot. I do not know about the regular menu. I only had the Thanksgiving buffet.

This is our third year having Thanksgiving at New South. As always, we love the soup, sides and the world's best bread pudding. Roast beef was grand! We're less crazy about the fried turkey breast (low on flavor) or the pulled pork, which was less pulled than expected. Still, a great place for Thanksgiving!
