Amazing experience. Kyisha was a great server; very kind and attentive. We loved the fact that both Management, i believe his name is Micheal, and the chef checked in to see how our meal and experience was during and after our meal. I’ve never been to a place where they valued customer satisfaction as much as South does.
We tried the Duck and Beef short Ribs...both were mouth watering. Would definitely recommend and return!
Food was AMAZING! Had the cornbread, shrimp and grits, deviled eggs, crab toast and the short ribs!! Green beans weren’t to tasty but everything else cancelled that out!! Mango Habanero Margaritas were BOMB too!
It was beautiful classy. The type of place you would want to be. The good was good. And the hospitality was excellent.
Very professional and accommodating. Our server, Stephanie, was extremely attentive and offered suggestions for everything. I would recommend South for the great food and fine service.
I've been here multiple times in may different settings...jazz shows, a regular dinner, or just to sit at the bar. I keep coming back because it is amazing ambience, creative delicious food and drinks and friendly staff...you just can never go wrong with a Bynum Brothers restaurant. On this occasion I came for mother's day and enjoyed their price fixe 3 course meal. This is the first time I've been since the pandemic and I appreciated their social distanced seating and staff wearing masks and glasses or face shields. I absolutely recommend South and will return!
I really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and my waitress. I would definitely go again!
The staff, music and food were exceptional. The music wasn't overly loud which was a plus. I was still able to have a conversation with my 85yr old mother. We will definitely be back.
Food and hospitality was amazing, I highly recommend!
Amazing entertainment and food!
Great food! Service was a bit week, but the manager was gracious and professional!😊
The entire staff was very pleasant as well as attentive. From the manager on down to our server. Our food was fresh & served promptly.
Amazing mouth watering food!
I love great Jazz and it was definitely provided with Lynn Riley group. A+ in that categorey.
I thought the food was salty. I liked the performance and my dad got engaged but I was disappointed with my meal.
Great music, good food and had an overall good night as I proposed and it was a birthday celebration for my son.
Great experience!! The music was amazing and the food delicious as always.
Everything was perfect! It was a great night! The jazz show was excellent with JJ Sansaverino!
I loved this experience. I had been a few times before but this time stood out above the rest. Perfect date night setting and the service only made the experience better. The manager working and the staff exudes quality and aided us in making the night special. I'll definitely be back!
Fabulous and very enjoyable!
The menu was totally different when I arrived. It wasn't the same at all. that was the only reason why I came back to South.
Great food, great ambience, nice management as well. Felt like the host wanted us to leave the way they watched us the whole time but everything else was great.
Thank you very much for your hospitality. Very polite, respectful and Patient Employees.
Cold in the restaurant and Jazz Parlor! It makes it very uncomfortable!
I loved my first visit here. The food, service, music, and scenery was all great! I went here for a date night and everything turned out perfectly. I definitely plan to go back, so I can get the Jazz Club experience.
I will be returning in the near future. I ordered the Chilean seabass which was delicious. It was seared and cooked perfectly. It was so hearty, and rich. It was served on a bed of kernel corn, and my friend joked she had to get every last kernel with her fork. I agreed. We ordered the skillet cornbread and macaroni and cheese for the table and it was very tasty. The atmosphere was good too. Our server was new, so she was no as helpful as we would have liked but she did try. I think there was a large party too since our drinks took a while to come out.
South was amazing. Everything from customer service, environment & especially the food was stellar. I will definitely be returning.
South Restaurant is an excellent establishment for entertainment to experience individually, with others and for all occasions. Ambiance, food and the Jazz Room continues to keep me a very satisfied customer!
Everything was great with one exception! The jazz room is always cold and it makes the experience uncomfortable! I've heard others complaining as well!
I really enjoyed myself.like really I can say the best place to go hear jazz and eat good cooking
There’s nothing but good things to say. The service and vibes were amazing. They were all very intimate and accommodating to all of our needs. The Jazz performance was top notch as as well all of the performers were very talented!!!!
We loved Kyle!!! He was very down to earth and personable. My parents enjoyed themselves as I did ! We can’t wait to return!
We had a wonderful time! I highly recommend visiting and making it a date night.
We went for the Jazz and the decor, food, hospitality was just as good !
I ordered a banana pudding it to-go and when I got home took it out to eat it. When I saw the darkened bananas, I knew it wasn't freshly made. I threw it away. That is the one and only time I ever had an issue with anything at SOUTH. I LOVE IT HERE!!! And I will be returning!
Great Jazz & soul food spot, we had a great time, can’t wait to go back
Great food. Great music. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves jazz and great service.
I'd definitely recommend this place. The food was amazing and the Mango Habanero margarita was incredible! The ambiance and the service was great. The staff were very and nice attentive . I'll come again.
I really liked the restaurant, a little upsetting that I picked the entertainment package for a 6pm sitting but the band doesn't start until 7pm.
The food was very good except for the rice. It needed gravy or some kind of sauce. I enjoyed the live music with Warren Orre Jazz Band. That was my first time and I see myself and friends returning again.
