The trout wasn’t very tasty and my friends had to get their pork chops redone. But I love the brunch offering better than the dinner options.

She crab soup was tasty. The shrimp with bbq sauce is a must try. We loved the fried chicken. However $26 did seem a little steep for 1 piece of chicken. The lamb neck was a large portion and melt in the mouth tender and tasty. Banana pudding was perfect. Atmosphere was ok on the outside patio. Could be prettier with more plants and fairy lights. . Service is outstanding.

We had an unbelievably great brunch experience. Ariel our waitress was attentive without being over the top. We had the chicken and waffles which was extraordinary. The chicken is some of the best I have tasted. We sat outside and the ambiance was perfect. The weather was also great. In addition we met and talked with the beverage manager Chris. He was very pleasant and given this was our first experience there he made sure that he left a great impression. He was very knowledgeable about the wines and other beverages featured. No doubt we will return and highly recommend south city kitchen. You guys rock!

Great spot for group dining. I love that the tables are spaced far apart. Seems like they are making sure to keep patrons safe and adhering Covid guidelines unlike some restaurants. Our waiter Sean was fantastic and friendly, and he kept on his mask. Overall I felt safe, had a great time and enjoyed the food!

Biscuits and cornbread are amazing! If you try the BBQ shrimp, plan on getting your fingers dirty, but still super good. It’s one of our favorite restaurants when we come to Atlanta.

I made reservations for Sunday Bruch for myself and a girlfriend based off the reviews. With this being my first time dining with them my hopes were high, but sadly I was let down. We arrived a few minutes before our 1:45 reserved time slot after waiting at the hostess stand for a few mins the hostess finally took our names and told us to be seated. The hostess literally whispered my name but luckily we were sitting close so I was able to hear, a part of me thought she purposefully said it low but I let it go and we were lead to our table. After a few minutes at our table our waitress Ariel arrived and took our drink orders, we ordered a mimosa caraffe and two waters with lemon. She came back with the waters and literally two lemon slices, we requested more lemon slices and proceeded to give her food orders. My friend and I both ordered the fried chicken because it came so highly recommended when reading the reviews. Out comes our food...but still no mimosas. Initially I didnt think much of the wait until a party was seated next to us and i noticed that there mimosas were brought out to them and we had been there 45 prior to them sitting down. We also noticed that they were served bread something that we just didnt get. Finally our mimosas come and still no lemon slices. Our table and the table next to us had the same waitress, Ariel, but were were given two completely different customer service. By this time I saw the manager Chris walking around so I requested to speak with him. I pointed out the difference in service that i was seeing others receive compared to how we were being served and that from the reviews i read i didnt expect to wait 45 minutes for my drinks. He did offer to take off the price of the mimosas and gave an apology. Shortly after our waitress arrived with two togo boxes with the bread we were supposed to have on arrival. Sad to say i will not be visiting this location again. Was left disappoint and dehydrated. FYI the chicken was just okay.

The food and service were great! I was disappointed as they sat us in the bar area and I had indicated that we were celebrating our anniversary (20th actually) and it was very noisy. There was also an altercation at the bar with someone throwing a drink. Would not recommend for a romantic dinner.
