I would have given this place 5 stars if it were not for how unfriendly and rude the hostess acted. Yes, she did seem quite busy, but she was extremely rude and acted like I was an inconvenience to her. Our waiter was incredible and so was the food, but the hostess is one of the first impressions you get at a restaurant and I was so disappointed in how she treated us. If I go back, it will not be to this location.

Great food and service, beautiful atmosphere outdoors.
Not sure if there’s a back patio but where we sat outside was so loud with traffic. Otherwise great!
Had brunch-
Don’t order appetizers unless you want to be stuffed!
Tasty complimentary biscuits

First time here. Great ambience and service, but the food was quite disappointing. The piece of chicken was overcooked, the crabcake did not taste fresh. Cups of coffee were tiny.

I would not recommend the Buckhead Location. Another location might be better. It just may have been where they seated us but since I made a reservation they should have seated us in a nice location.

Fantastic recommendations from my server. Started with the crab cake and then for main ordered the halibut. Fresh flavors and a little bit of a kick. Loved it! Also had a mezcal bases cocktail that I enjoyed very much—I ordered a second! Would totally come back here. Noticed a lot of big groups here so looks perfect for team meetings or larger parties.

Our waiter was personable, but everyone else was rude and acted as if we were inconveniencing them. The food was poorly done and overpriced. Overall quality level seems to have gone down drastically in the last year.

I really enjoyed the fried chicken meal. It was very flavorful, with nice crispness and very tender meat. It paired well with the collards and mashed potatoes. I just loved the cornbread and the fried green tomatoes were just the right texture and had delicious sauce with it. I gave the food a four based on my mother saying the trout could’ve been a bit more flavorful. The service was excellent, particularly the explanations of various dishes and the recommendations given. Loved the ambience on the outdoor patio.

We went for brunch and almost everything was excellent that we ordered. My server told me they had freshly squeezed lemonade and it wasn’t then I had the she crab soup which was really good especially with the biscuits and corn bread they gave you-that was to die for. They didn’t have the Nashville sandwich my son ordered but the chef was nice enough to make it...he said it was amazing and it really was tasty. My younger son ordered from the kids menu and got the chicken fingers, that was also yummy. My husband got the steak which I thought was really good but he ordered it well done and it came out pretty charred. As for my fried chicken-IT WAS AMAZING BUT...when I got almost down to my bone it had a little blood in it and I was so upset bec of hoe good it was. The servers there were all so nice and they got me a brand new piece of fried chicken but was a tad bit disappointed again as this time it came out a little burnt .

Overall, everything was excellent and I would definitely return!

We were looking for a good brunch place in Buckhead and stumbled upon south city kitchen. Our server was incredibly attentive and helpful throughout the entire meal. The cornbread and biscuit basket they bring out before the food is delicious. The peach jam was amazing. I got the crab cake which was one of the best I have ever eaten and my wife got the brisket Benedict which was such a great combination of flavors. Everything we had was very delicious and we would highly recommend this place to anyone searching for a brunch spot in Atlanta.

We had a group of eight and set in the loft area. Wonderful service, Melanie was great and was very passionate about the menu. Her recommendations were spot on! The best and most unique meal we had in Atlanta. We had the following items that were amazing: pork chop, fried chicken, KC bone in, hanger steak, fried green tomatoes and the CORNBREAD!

Can’t wait to come back.

South City has a good menu and some items are musts. The fried green tomatoes being just that. If you have a chance, I would go to the Avalon location rather than this location. I went to that location a few weeks ago and had the pork chop and it was awesome...so I ordered the same here and it was NOT EVEN CLOSE to as good. It was much smaller and really dry on the outside. I think the Avalon version was served with mashed potatoes also, this version was not. It was pretty minimal.
