We went for our 24th wedding anniversary. The food was decent. However it was loud for a romantic evening. Our waiter was nonexistent most of the evening. It took 45 minutes to receive our appetizer. It looked like most tables received bread, we did not. I put a note on our reservation that is was our anniversary and no one asked how we were or said happy anniversary. When I asked about specials the waiter rudely stated we just have the menu, but we do have a dessert special and I will tell you later. 15 minutes after finishing our dinner he arrived and finally asked if we wanted dessert, um no thanks. This would be a place to meet with friends not a great date place.

Came for dinner to celebrate Mother’s Day and I don’t think I could’ve made a better selection! The pork belly appetizer is by far the BEST appetizer I’ve ever had in my entire existence!! Our server, Felipe was beyond amazing! He was beyond knowledgeable about the menu and made supreme recommendations!! Give that man a raise!! Salute to the chef and to the entire staff!! I’ll definitely be a return patron!!

Fried chicken portion was extremely small, like a kids meal! Ordered this several times in the past and never had a problem. This was disappointing.

Disappointed that other customers were sitting in sandals and GA bulldog tee shirts. This was a Mothers Day brunch and the experience of taking Mom to a "really nice place" wasn't really there.

Food was pretty good. Service was amazing and I was so happy to see they had crayons and coloring page for kids. I was nervous this might not be a great place to take kids but it turned out great.

Our first trip to the Avalon Property and the food was excellent across the board but the waiter was constantly distracted. Thankfully we didn't have to rely on him to bring the servings and we had a great meal. If we return we will insist on a table in the smaller room leading to the patio - main dining area was very loud.

It was our first time at SSK Avalon and also the first time we've been seated outdoors in a very long time. We really enjoyed it. Especially the cool breezes and the fireplace. The wait staff is awesome - to be highly commended for probably working short and maintaining such a helpful and cheerful attitude. We'd love to come back!

(9:15 am res, Party of 5, including 7 & 9 yo boys) We were sat in a corner, no server for 10 min, had to ask for server. Server arrives and we’re ready to give the whole order, requested hot sauce and he told us how amazing it was, but failed to bring it. One of us ordered a mimosa, never brought that, had to remind the server. Child ordered side of sausage, never got that, had to ask the server. Had to ask for the check and to-go containers. Check was delivered, but no to-go containers. Went to find a manager, told them it was the worst experience and to please bring to-go containers. Manager offered to fix the bill, but we had already paid and kids were restless - so embarrassed and not happy as this was a Mother’s Day eve brunch. Won’t be back

Another great meal! The Shrimp and Grits plate is still the best. Our server, Krista C, was engaging and professional without being overbearing. She made the evening special and sealed the 5-star rating for us. Can't wait until our next special occasion!

The Avalon location of South City Kitchen maintains fully the high standard of the franchise. Everything -- from drinks to appetizers to entrees -- is wonderfully flavorful and we'll balanced. A great place for an evening out with favorite people. Service is highly skilled and friendly.

My friend and I shared the Creme Brule/Banana Pudding. OMG it was delicious. Next time I'm eating that as my appetizer. 😄
I've been going to SCK for several years and they never disappoint on food or service. #foreverfan

Easter Lunch with friends and family. The staff at South City Kitchen were very accommodating with my party and a friend’s party. They combined us at one large table and we were thrilled to be together.
Food is good, service was a bit slow but it was super busy. Our server was working hard and had a great personality and sense of humor.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will be back!
