I felt that the Buckhead SCK did not fo enough during these emergency times to separate individuals for spread of Coronavirus .

People were all seated in one section when you enter the front door .

When I arrived there were only 2 table’s occupied. Hostess seated everyone who came in, in this space with every table full and individuals less then 2 ft apart.

Very poor protocol during these times. Also; there were no STRAWS.

I’m sure this will be corrected ASAP until this emergency is over .

I recently celebrated a bridal dinner with my bridesmaid and the service was absolutely amazing. I cannot recall the waitresses name but she was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu items. I will definitely be going back !

Always really solid. Great service and a nice location. Pretty room and solid grub. They waaaaayyyy over-cooked my burger, but everything else for the table was well prepared. A very nice lunch option even if it has gotten a bit h-hum over the years. They need a couple of "come back" dishes like they used too.

Food was delicious, and service was superb. They kindly accommodated our family physical constraints (kept to first floor) and made our young kids feel welcome and appreciated.

I came here to have brunch with my friend and everything was exquisite. There service was great, the food was AMAZING I couldn't get enough and ate every crumb. I think you get a good amount of food for the money you pay.

The wine choices selected by our server, Mark were delightful. The green salad accompanied with the delicious South city kitchen crabcake was awesome and the shrimp and grits was a delicious dish.

Fresh and still elegant ambiance! Thank you South City Buckhead!

It was great. The drinks were really good, but I do wish they had options for buying a pitcher of mimosa instead just by the glass

Only problem they kept wanting to pull the dishes off while we still munching the appetizers not sure if they have a rule to keep dishes off the table but it drove us nuts to keep telling the, we will still eating although we were on our entrees, so a little crazy service but food was incredible.

A must stop when in Atlanta. I have typically gone to the Midtown location. The one in Buckhead is just as good.

yummy food & great service!! but my goodness it was hot, temperature wise inside! Also, we were seated in a very undecorated/side room part of the restaurant which didn’t quite match the ambiance of the rest of the restaurant. Overall happy experience!!

We had a drink at the bar while waiting for our table. The bartender, Alex (I might be mistaken on the name), was very informative about the menu and she was very hospitable. Once seated, it took several minutes for the server to arrive. Once the server finally arrived, service just went downhill. I worked in the industry for a very long time, and this type of service is unacceptable.

The food was amazing and our server was just lovely. Food and service were top notch.

The decor inside is so dreary. No view. Seemed cold and lifeless as opposed to cozy and warm.

Fantastic southern fare, great service and ambiance. When we first sat down, it was very loud. Our server came in and immediately said the music was too loud. He went and asked for the music to be turned down and everything was great after that. The biscuits and cornbread are amazing. The fried chicken (which we ordered on the side!) was delicious, and I am a fan of the shrimp and grits.

Birthday Celebrations are amazing. From their rewards program I earned a free birthday meal and a dessert. Of course, you must show your loyalty throughout the year! Service was relaxed formal, four different seating options (upstairs, outdoor, formal dinning, and bar) allows any type of occasion.

Overall nice - had a global team in town and we were introducing Southern food. Trainee waiter was nice but needs to be taught how to uncork a bottle of wine & the lead server needed to check in more. Left $$ in my wallet

The food was extremely bland and was nothing to write home about. The ambiance was good, low lighting and pretty quite. Truthfully, I would not go back or recommend this place to friends as the food was extremely lackluster and tasteless. ESPECIALLY the fried green tomatoes...yuck!

Fantastic! We were late for our reservation on Valentine’s Day. We called to let them know and they held it.

Upon our arrival, they correctly assumed who were were and were very gracious. They treated us like arrangements bing family members and as they took us to our primo table by a window, they told us to relax, it’s okay we are late and that a drink will help us do just that.

Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, engaging and present, but not intrusive. The food was as described and delicious.

The team concept worked well as multiple team members delivered our meal. Management was clearly visible and frequently walked through the dining room. They briefly engaged with each table and made it feel like they were engaging with old friends.

Celebrated a friend's birthday for lunch. When making reservation asked for a nice "quiter' table which, we got. We ordered a glass of wine and waited a short while to order. Our waiter was very pleasant and didn't seem to mind. The food was delicious - the Ceasar salad with fried chicken = delectable! The restaurant is very nice looking, but it does seem to get noisy when crowded. Ask for a table in the room by the driveway - that room seemed a little less noisy. I look forward to going back soon.
