Our new favorite place. The food is delicious. Great variety. Some unusual dishes. Fried green tomatoes are out of this world. Great servers.
Catfish Reuben only fair - fried to point where couldn’t taste fish flavor.
Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding food quality and presentation during your most recent meal with us, edt1. We sincerely apologize for your most recent experience and would be grateful for an opportunity to chat with you further to make this right.
A Friday night. This is the restaurant in the Avalon Marriott hotel in Alpharetta. It has two dining sections. One is next to the bar with a wooden floor and no table cloths. Consequently the area is quite loud. The other area is adjacent and is carpeted. It is larger and quieter. The service is very slow and the area is untended often. Biscuits arrived after 1 hour. The appetizers are pretty good, she crab soup, endive salad and pimento cheese but the main courses are very bland and not very good. The fried chicken was ordered and arrived not as Southern fried but rather as a breast cutlet with a thin piece of skin. It was thick and rather soggy. The trout was dry and just thrown on the plate with no attempt at presentation. The food arrived after 1 hour and 10 minutes. The sides were passable, collard greens and mashed red potatoes, but cold. This is a typical hotel restaurant, one you go to only if you are not looking to leave the hotel. I would suspect that it is desperate for help like most restaurants that are north of the city.

Extremely professional & knowledgeable staff. Our waiter answered many questions about the wine list and menu items. Staff was attentive without being obtrusive. Wonderful environment for a Friday night crowd.
Pretty quiet being that the restaurant was full. Our appetizers and dinners were excellent and would order the same again - fried chicken, pork chop and shrimp & grits were our choices, but anxious to try other items too. Would definitely recommend to family/friends and will be returning for dinner soon.

We have eaten at this location a number of times and other locations countless times. My wife's meal, the signature fried chicken dish, came and was charred. I don't know who looked at it in the kitchen and deemed it something to serve to a paying customer. We immediately asked our waiter to replace it and he did so, but it took quite awhile and my wife got to watch me eat my meal. I finished my meal before hers came out and I got to watch her eat her meal. Not exactly a meal together. A manager came out and asked us about the problem and we told him it had been taken care of. My wife ordered a dessert afterward. The bill came and no adjustment of any kind was made for our experience. As we understand it, this is a Marriott owned franchise of sorts and maybe that explains things, but we have had only positive experiences over the years at the Vinings location.

We were 2 couples partaking of SCK’s Saturday Brunch. We had been to their Buckhead location about 2 years ago and enjoyed that experience. This was even better. We liked the restaurant’s layout a little better and the food was great. We’re planning to go back for a dinner meal soon.

This was our 2nd time here. The first time everything was so good I decided to bring my sister who is a wonderful cook and was visiting. It was an embarrassment for me. The service was lackadaisical, the she crab soup had so much pepper in it I could not taste the crab or the sherry, and the shrimp and grits was heavy and so spicy I had to send it back. What the heck happened!!! Will not return

We went after 1:00 PM, but we were served from the brunch menu. They were out of two dishes that were on the menu, so we had to order other items. The service was at the level of a fast casual dining chain - not what I expect from South City Kitchen. Finally, the food was not good enough to make me want to go back.
Thank you for writing to share about your most recent dining experience with us. We appreciate your feedback regarding entree availability and would like an opportunity to speak with you directly about the service you received.
