Came here for a group brunch on a Saturday morning. Service was amazing and the food came out pretty quickly. I’d only been to the midtown location before and this location is just as good.

Our waiter, Brian, was fabulous. When he made cocktail recommendations, it was as if he was reading our minds. The pork chop was the best I’ve ever eaten in my life. Soaked in a molasses brine and smoked, it was incredibly flavorful. My wife loved the scallops. Everything was delicious!

Buckhead version of Atlanta gem
When I use to spend a lot of time in Atlanta always went to the midtown south city kitchen
This time stayed in Buckhead and went to their satellite
Food still great southern cooking but admit I miss the old White House it was in

A nice introduction to Southern cuisine with a modern twist. It is walking distance from Grand Hyatt. The biscuits and corn bread muffins were light and a good start to our meal. I highly recommend the pork chops ~ smoked to perfection with collard greens and beans. Service was friendly yet non intrusive. If you’re staying in Buckhead, this is a place to go for dinner.

We were in Atlanta for a wedding. South City Kitchen was recommended by the hotel staff. It did not disappoint. The meal was delicious. My husband had the fried chicken and I had the pork chops . Both meals were cooked to perfection.

The food was delicious! However, when I arrived with my son to celebrate his birthday the hostesses seated us outside in the heat. I requested an indoor seating since I had made a reservation. It was refused by the main hostess because she said I requested outdoors (which I did not!). And there was ample seating inside. My husband arrived as I was calling him to tell him we were changing restaurants because of the heat. He was arriving at the restaurant and went inside to talk with them. He was wearing a sports coat and was able to talk to the manager who immediately was able to seat us inside! I don't know if I was refused because I was a woman or because the main hostess just wanted to seat me and my son in the heat! Everything went very well after that and we had a wonderful server, Emmanuel. The beginning of the evening was disturbing since we were trying to have a nice birthday dinner for my son's 32nd birthday. I'll think twice about going back because of the rudeness of the main hostess! We have been frequent diners the South City Kitchen locations and he has used the restaurant for business entertainment in the past. I had planned to use it for my business lunches or dinners since I have a successful startup in the Buckhead area but probably will not now.

We made reservations for 8:15PM and when we got there we had to wait till the table was ready. Server was very slow. The whole dining experience took almost 2 hours. A little expensive and the Food didn’t had a lot of flavor. I don’t see myself eating there again.

Food and service are amazing! Everyone is so friendly. Strongly recommend both the fried chicken and the shrimp and grits and you definitely want to get dessert here. Rotating bourbon was outstanding.
