We has a double date with another “mom and daughter” duo and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. No matter which location I visit I’m never disappointed.

Took three generations to dinner and everyone enjoyed it. Highly recommend the halibut, the fried chicken and the pork chop. Mashed potatoes were great too. Steven took great care of us. Thanks

Waitress was very courteous and efficient. However we weren't told that there was no Rose Champagne so bar staff just gave out Rose wine without any discussion. My salad was bland and dry with very little dressing. Over priced for what it was.

South City Kitchen is a lovely spot! The ambience of the hotel lobby and the restaurant make for a great night out.

The food is good, though some of the menu items are priced really high for what they are.

The service was fair. Our server would disappear for long stretches and forgot small requests leaving to ask multiple times.

Our group of six people had a very pleasant breakfast and productive meeting., Our waiter, David, took excellent care of us and was respectful that we were having a meeting. He was unobtrusive but attentive which is a tough balancing act. Well done, David!

Very limited menu. There are a couple of things that were excellent, but not a lot of choices. I had to send my meal back because it was overcooked and didn't taste good at all. I exchanged it for a waffle which was wonderful although pricey.

I’ve been trying to process last night’s experience at South City Kitchen. It started with my husband dropping us at the door and went to park in the garage. He dropped us, drive to the garage, parked, and came to the restaurant before anyone had stopped at our table to offer water or take a drink order. We waited about 10 min after he arrived (so 25 in total) before someone stopped by. I have a shellfish allergy so I asked the waiter if the fried green tomatoes were fried in the same fryer as shellfish. He said “no, absolutely not.” That the tomato’s and chicken had its own fryer specifically due to shellfish issues. I was 100% safe. He was VERY confident. Shortly thereafter, he came back and said he was wrong (he’s worked there for 3 years) and that the fryer was gluten free not shellfish free. Ultimately, we passed on the tomatoes. Ordering dinner, the waiter suggested the trout but said something weird like he could/should be suggesting the $55 entree (as a way to drive up the bill). We ordered nonetheless. Our food came out... 2 meals first, then a bit later the remaining 2. My son’s order was completely wrong. He ordered a cheeseburger but they brought chicken fingers. We just moved on and ate it without complaint. We also ordered 2 more glasses of wine. As we were nearly finishing our meal, wine never came, another server asked if we wanted refills on our wine. Yes, we asked 20 min ago. Then our original waiter came and asked if we wanted wine. We told him we had ordered that 20 min ago but it never came and that another server had gone to get it. Next thing we know, 4 glasses of wine came, so double. Whatever, put it down, we’ll drink it. It was seriously comical at this point... then we told our server that we wanted dessert. He said our son got ice cream with his kids meal. We still wanted dessert. He said “I’ll bring both and it’s on me.” Get the bill... we were charged for those tomatoes we never got, 6 glasses of wine AND the dessert! Hahaha.

We had a lovely time at South City Kitchen Avalon and will go back again. Service was great and the food was excellent. Tried the Fried Green Tomato appetizer and it was amazing! I had the Flank Steak entree which was also very good and my friend had the burger which she said was good as well.

Great place for brunch. Food was delicious and our server did an outstanding job. We had enjoyed brunch at South City Kitchen at Avalon before and were so impressed that we selected it for a belated Father's Day celebration. It was wonderful. From the King Biscuit to Malted Waffles with fried chicken, every dish was thoroughly enjoyed, even by a 20 month old!

We had friends in town and decided to bring them here. We have eaten here before and were confident the food would be spectacular again. And it was. Unfortunately, the server dampened the evening with her complacent and almost rude attitude. Asking her to take a of picture of us, she responded “I don’t care”. And made us feel uncomfortable to even ask for anything, which defeats the purpose of eating out. You are being waited on in a restaurant. They are called servers. She clearly has a chip on her shoulder. But again, the food was great and the host and manager were very welcoming. It’s unfortunate that our “server” was not happy to serve.
