It was nice ... however I think they should have opened another wall to have more air flow. Another issue, there are two levels and we definitely got exposed to the “down draft” from the people sitting directly above us.

My husband and I came for an 8:30 PM reservation on a Saturday night and were pleased to see the restaurant was respecting social distancing requirements.
We were seated in a small area upstairs which we liked as it was quiet and cozy.
Our waitress was Kiera and she was very attentive and friendly throughout our whole meal.
My husband had the butcher steak, which he loved! I ordered the fried chicken and subbed the sides for mac & cheese and Brussels sprouts. The chicken was a bit on the dry side but the skin was extra crispy and delicious. The entrées are quite large so a great value for your money and complementary biscuits and corn muffins are phenomenal!
We will be returning to try some other entrées.

The ambiance and staff were excellent. Great view from the upstairs dining room. The food was very lackluster. The crab cake was not bad, but not the best. Pork chop was good, nice char. Shrimp and grits were probably the worst I’ve had. Little to no flavor. Typically if all else fails you can just eat the shrimp, but even that was hard to get through.

Our dinner at South City Kitchen Buckhead did not disappoint. From beginning to end service was exceptional, the food was delicious and the ambiance of the second level provided comfort and safety as well as amazing views. My family and I will be back soon.

Server Kiera was excellent. The view from 2nd floor was nice. Smoked pork belly, roasted Brussels, Carolina trout, and Parmesan crusted grouper were flavorful and delicious except for the turnip greens on the grouper was too salty.

The ambience and the staff were awesome! I’m generally a fan of South City Kitchen which is why I booked a large party here to celebrate my daughters birthday, but the Midtown locations food is far tastier! Everything was Bland.... sad face. We still had a solid time. I would recommend the Crescent rd location over this one.

Went to celebrate my moms birthday. The staff was wonderful even after me changing the number of guests twice and arriving late due to inclement weather. The only thing my mom had a problem with was her shrimp and grits was doused in red sauce. It really looked like slop.

Second time eating here. Atmosphere was good but the food this time was only average. Had Butcher steak and hopping John. Buthcer steak a little tough and not very flavorful. Broccoli and vegetables had way too much vinegar in them. Hopping John had very little flavor.
She crab soup was however good.

Loved the food! The food was the perfect temperature and very delicious. The service, however, was a bit disappointing. We had a reservation but were seated 30 minutes after the reservation time. Once we were seated, we spent so much time waiting for our drinks and food. Our server was kind but also gave off a bit of an attitude. Overall I think the experience could’ve been better. We chose South City Kitchen because we love the food and have been to other locations, but the service experience we had here makes us not want to go to this location again.
