Service charge was a huge turnoff and as expected led to marginal service. Steak very chewy. Presentation weak

We loved South City Kitchen. Great, high quality food. Lovely spin on classic southern foods. We received excellent service. I had the Eufala drink and it was excellent. We loved the She Crab Soup and the pork chop! Will definitely be returning.

One of my favorite restaurants.
The menu is quite different. Not many entrees to choose from, it seemed to be more small plates/appetizers. However the means I did choose was excellent, and our server was very attentive.

We dined at South City Kitchen tonight in celebration of my cousins birthday! I had looked over the menu before and always wanted to dine. I’m glad this was our choice. The food was nothing short of amazing!! We tried their Top known dishes, the fried green tomatoes were excellent! The goat cheese on them delicious. My mom had the fried chicken with collard greens and mash potatoes, also a home run. I had the pork chop which was soooo good! I ate it all to the bone, the marinade was Phenomenal, I couldn’t do the bean salad due to an allergy so I subbed for collards! Which was a great choice. My cousin got the chicken livers, he was too enthusiastic about them but took down the mac n cheese and didn’t share lol he said it was excellent. For apps we got the jumbo carb cake and the grilled watermelon and heirloom tomato salad also wonderful. I wanted to try their famous peach upside down cake but it was sold out...next time for sure. I must also mention the drinks were great as well.

The service is great and the atmosphere is awesome 👏🏼

This was my first visit. I really liked the location and city views from the patio. My waiter, Emmanuel, was amazing and paid such attention to my specific request...the best! The food was flavorful; I had the She-crab soup and jumbo lump crab cake. My drink was great, though I can’t recall the name, Emmanuel recommended it. Overall, my experience was a great one. Con: slightly pricy. Would definitely go back!

Everything went well, although our server may have forgotten to send in our carafe of Bellini; however he was very nice. They did last call at 2:00 but we didn’t know they closed then. My watermelon heirloom salsas was phenomenal as well as the fried green tomatoes. My she-crab soup was super thick and not quite as good. Overall, we enjoyed everything.

Excellent job of following and enforcing current COVID-19 health and safety guidelines! Food was good. I thought the food was a bit too salty...but the outdoor dining ambiance was wonderful and the lemon gelato was the perfect way to end our meal.

My boyfriend and I went this past Saturday and the food was Terrible!
I've dined at the location in Midtown before do I was expecting the same quality and taste. I ordered the fried chicken... Nasty! My boyfriend ordered the steak. Salty and Gross. The Mac and cheese was white and dry.
The only good thong was our server. She was Excellent!
Other than that we will Never ho back.

So I would of love to give a good review . Unfortunately the front desk ruined that . After being embarrassed and also questioned about if I was eating alone or not ... and why! . The front desk finally sat me after waiting ten min with a reservation. The front desk was very rude. Really ruined the experience for me . The area I say was very cold temperature. Hard for me to stay long and really enjoy the food . Fried chicken was great . Greens needed more flavor. Mash potatoes were okay ish .

First they are making sure all the Covid rules are followed. Everyone is wearing masks and gloves. You are spaced well beyond 6 feet.. everyone was super nice and friendly. Service was great. The food wonderful. I had the fried chicken collards and mashed potatoes cooked perfect so good . Mac and Cheese new to the menu was so creamy and delicious. Wonderful dining experience from start to finish.

We did a backyard wedding in the morning due to COVID and decided to come to South City Kitchen for dinner, just the 2 of us. Someone called ahead and told them it was our wedding day. They were so kind to us and treated us great! It was the perfect way to end our wedding day.

First we arrived late, which was my fault, I called to let them know and our reservation was adjusted, because of that, we had to sit in another room which we didn’t care for! Experience wasn’t good for us! Food was good though and staff was very nice! We we’ll be back, hopefully, on time! Thank you Kayleigh (sorry, if name is spelled wrong) for adjusting reservation time for us! When your late, things don’t usually go the way you would like it throw your whole day off🥴

We enjoyed the food and the ambience. We jammed the their awesome playlist. Maxwell, our server, was fantastic!!

Our only disappointment was not knowing they are currently adding 20% service fee. The manager came to our table and explained the charge which is great to know they are taking care of their staff. Wish this was explained at time of making reservation or upon seating.
