The four of us got the steak and mac. My husband's steak was a little overdone. Mine was perfect. We all enjoyed our meal. We will go back. Loved the looks of the shrimp and grits at the table next to me!

We ate a wide variety of menu items as a party of four and everything was perfect—pork bao, duck fried rice, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, peach salad with salmon, steak with Gouda Mac, burger, etc. Great happy hour too. SOB never disappoints!

Food & service was very good. Limited Menu & Wine list. Good place to grab dinner before a game or event at the Orpheum.

South of Beale had very good food! Unfortunately, a very aloof waitress serving us. We would recommend the food especially the TSO cauliflower, peach salad and Zaka bowl. We checked in on yelp to get the 10% off and they took 5% off. We ordered a wine and a cocktail and the wine was delivered but not the cocktail. We had to ask for a plates to go with the appetizers.

The duck fried rice is delicious and a large portion! Disappointed the lamb kabobs were sold out as we were there at 7pm. Awfully early to be out of a dish !

Dinner was outstanding as usual!! The General Tso’s Cauliflower is one of our favs and it was delish! Also had the Burrata & Heirloom Tomato that was out of this world and we shared the always yummy Cheeseburger & Fries! I did miss the Chicken & Waffles that has been on the menu forever. If it ever comes back please let us know and we will be making a trip back to Memphis!!

The food is excellent - quite fresh and prepared to order. I love the salmon with maple glazed brussels sprouts. The atmosphere is usually vibrant, but this particular Saturday at 6pm, it was dead there. Our server was attentive and friendly.

This had great reviews, but it was a let down. Most problems were service related, wrong drinks, no refills, waitress was mostly Mia. We read Google reviews about the great homemade popcorn, but after we asked, she said they don't give it out because then they run out. She did bring us a small bowl, but it was stale and bland. Our appetizer was amazing, but we could not omit peppers from any menu items, she told us no special orders. We got a flat bread and a pasta dish. Portions were small and the pasta was cold. Waited for waitress, gave up after 5 minutes, and went to the bar to get salt and pepper. When we told waitress about the wrong drink, cold food, etc, her only answer was "my bad," Very disappointed, will not go back.

The food was so delicious! I chose SOB because of the duck fried rice. My daughter loves duck. Everything was perfectly spiced/flavored. Not too hot or spicy, but delicious flavors!

It’s been 5 years since I’ve been here and was excited to try the new menu; however, much was not available tonight. For what I could get, the pork buns were good, the cauliflower was delicious, and the burrata salad was ok. I’m disappointed, but not discouraged.

When we got there our table was ready and waiting. Only issue was they were out of some of the things on the menu but there were still plenty of things to choose from. We will definitely return.
