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.

Made an easy reservation online and arrived early. Seated quickly by a friendly hostess. Our waitress was with us in no time on a busy day. Got our drinks, appetizer quickly. Waitress checked in with us frequently, despite scads of diners and lots to do. Food was delicious, well-cooked, fresh, with local sourcing listed in lobby area. Our group of five tried a variety of brunch items--omelet to salads and sandwiches. Hash browns looked like slices of fruitcake, and were unusually tasty, Belgian waffle served with fresh crème and blueberries. Biscuits were
plump and warm for the butter melting. We were all pleased and pricing was appropriate.

Dishes at this restaurant never disappoint. I had the NC Trout stuffed with crabmeat and it was quite delicious. The other dish ordered was the fried meatloaf and that is always delicious. The appetizer was the fried wontons which were so, so good. Service there is always good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Went to NS for lunch on Easter Sunday. One of our favorite restaurants and it did not disappoint this time either. We had great service and the food was outstanding. Deviled eggs always good and the Fried blueberry pie is a must for dessert.

Excellent meal - decor could use an update and one of our water glasses came with lipstick on it - so perhaps a place we would try again but not overly impressive.

New South is always a great experience! The freshest food is prepared to a delish meal that you will definitely enjoy! From the succulent N.C Trout stuffed with crab to the tasty Fried Catfish to the tender Beef Short Ribs - you won’t be disappointed. The sides are awesome as well...the wonderfully crispy fired okra, the creamy mashed potatoes and the warm beet salad are all great choices. Don’t miss out on this place!! It’s great for an after work gathering or even a date night!

This was our 2nd visit to New South Kitchen and Bar. We had out-of-town friends visiting for New York. They were impressed (as were we, again). Shared appetizers of fried green tomatoes and wontons were very good. Two of us ordered the VERY delicious and chicken pot pie (great dark-meat chicken), I had the grilled veal meatloaf (yummy) and there was an order for North Carolina trout (again, yummy and great presentation). All served by a very good waitress. Wine selection was extensive and good. Prices were modest for good food. Don't expect too much "ambiance" from the decor, but it is more than OK.

We will return to New South Kitchen and Bar.

Disappointed that menu had been changed to be fairly limited. The trout came out heavy due to the breading and cream sauce. Brussels sprouts difficult to eat because it was barely cooked.

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!

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.

Great southern comfort food, everything our group had was very good. It's a little loud so if you're looking for a quiet evening this might not be the spot, but overall we really liked it!
