The server made us feel rushed through our meal and he was not very friendly at all. The food was delicious.

Since there are just two of us, my bestie and I have been coming to New South Kitchen for Thanksgiving for a few years. I was worried about COVID-19, but we went anyway, and they did not disappoint. We got there early and had a few drinks at the bar before dinner. Dinner was amazing! It really felt like a holiday!

We all enjoyed the food. There was plenty and we all had something leftover. The service was great and the environment was good. The deviled eggs were a little vinegary but that is the only negative about the food, the rest was great. Perfect Thanksgiving meal for me since I didn't have to cook or clean up!

It was our first Thanksgiving together so naturally I wanted to be able to converse during dinner and we were able to do just that the seating was close enough to feel connected but far away enough to not feel crowded the food was literally Spectacular! Our waitress was attentive and responsive! The dri is did the job! We have already discussed returning!

We had the standing rib roast Thanksgiving lunch. It was excellent! For $40 a person, we each got a starter, the rib roast, 3 sides and dessert. Everything was excellent! We tried the Honey Bourbon cocktail and it was amazing. Our server was awesome. Everything came out quickly and hot. We will definitely be going back for brunch or dinner some time soon.

Enjoyed our brunch very much. The biscuits were light on the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside. The crab cake benedict was chock full of crab. Pure Intentions coffee. What's not to love.

We ordered the mixed green salad which is delicious. For entrees we had the salmon with farro, it was really amazing and the pork tenderloin which never ever disappoints and a side of roasted sweet potatoes, our favorite side on the menu. Our server was Chris and he is always helpful and great to deal with. Having to watch what we eat we always have great tasty options on their menu. Love NSK and everyone there!!! I recommend this restaurant because their food is truly delicious and locally sourced. I also appreciate that they are very careful as far a following Covid protocols so one can feel safe. It is a family run restaurant and everyone there is caring and thoughtful. 10 stars for NSK!!

Excellent food and service as well as adherence to covid safety protocols. Service was perfect and burger and chicken and waffle entrees great. Burger was a bit pricey at $20 but quality and with an excellent side :)

My go to place!! We have gone 3 times in 1 week so this is a combo review. On Thursday we ordered the fried green tomato appetizer, KT's Penne and the Salmon with the mixed green salad and roasted potatoes and had the peach cobbler for dessert with house made icecream. It was all delicious as expected. On Saturday we ordered the fried green tomato appetizer, the pork tenderloin and the flounder with succotash and mixed green salad. The tenderloin never disappoints, so tender and delicious. The flounder was really tasty! Of course we had the peach cobbler, its so, so good! On the following Wednesday we did not have an appetizer, we ordered the flounder with succotash for the side and the mixed green salad. It all was very good. NSK is the best, feels like home and the serve staff are fantastic and super helpful. In this time of COVID-19, they are very careful wearing masks, social distancing and cleaning religiously. We trust these people implicitly! They are really good people! They serve really, really good food!!

Good experience overall. Their fryer was not working and for some in my party this was a little more bothersome but they settled on other items. Waitress was good. Very attentive and good personality.

This past Friday we went to NSK, as usual. We ordered the fried zucchini appetizer which was recommended by our server Kelsey and it was delicious! We ordered the KT's Pasta and the blackened meatloaf with side of mashed potatoes. KT's is my 2nd favorite at NSK and the meatloaf was excellent! We shared the peach tart dessert and that was refreshing and very tasty! NSK never disappoints! Great place, great people!

Dinner was delicious! Had the mixed green salad, the tastiest salad we have ever had! We had for entrees the fried catfish, which was good but we prefer the mahi and the pork tenderloin which never disappoints! We have been getting the semi-fredo for dessert, it is delicious!! This time served with blackberries, not my favorite, so our wonderful server Nicole asked the kitchen if they could be switched with peaches and they did. I was very happy! Thank you all! We love everyone at NSK, best people ever!!

My girlfriend and I had dinner at New South Kitchen and Bar Saturday night and thought the food and service were both excellent. This is during Covid so obviously the atmosphere was not what we'd normally expect. We were sat at a booth and diners were spaced apart as expected. Servers and staff wore masks and we wore masks into the restaurant as well. We ordered the Baked Pimento Cheese with Wontons as an appetizer and it was a great way to start the dinner - definitely a comfort food and a good choice with everything else going on in the world. My girlfriend had the Lemon & Herb Chicken with a side of Mac 'n Cheese while I opted for the Blackened Meatloaf and Roasted Sweet Potatoes. The chicken was tender and the mac 'n cheese was one of the best I've had (and I always try it when it's on the menu). My blackened meatloaf was nice and crispy on the outside and tender and flavorful on the inside. The roasted sweet potatoes were the surprise for me. I've never had sweet potatoes cooked that way and they were delicious. All in all, it was a great dinner and I'd definitely recommend the restaurant.

As usual, NSK never disappoints! We ordered the pimento cheese appetizer which was delicious!! For entrees we ordered the flat hanger steak, the lamb shoulder and the chicken and waffles. Our sides were the roasted sweet potatoes and the mixed green salad. Can't go wrong with either! Love, love the salad! All were amazing! Dessert was the semifredo with strawberries, our new favorite dessert! They are being very careful with the social distancing and serve staff wearing masks so don't be afraid to dine in there. Pretty much the one place we really trust for dining in. Best staff and food around!

We really enjoyed brunch today!! We were so happy to find a brunch option near my parents that took reservations and had outdoor seating. Southern Kitchen was amazing. Their attention to detail and cleanliness was outstanding. Our waitress was attentive and followed social distancing guidelines. The food was outstanding! The burger, meatloaf, chicken and waffles, and omelette all received rave reviews from our family! Thank you for a wonderful brunch!!
