    The food was good I tried the deviled eggs that was all that because everyone can’t make them and I tried the shrimp and grits that was good also and my wife had the beet salad that she really enjoyed.

    In the past decade, Philadelphia restaurants have come and go, but I pray this one is here to stay for a long time. There is simply nothing bad I can say about SOUTH. The food is delicious. The service is in a class all its own - top notch. The atmosphere is artistic and original and I've never felt so welcome going to a restaurant. This is the restaurant I take all of my out of town friends to and you should to. Amazing!

    Tip was appended to the prepaid $60pp only to learn that it was actually $45pp. Another tip was automatically mandated to the bill for in house beverages. It was very shady. I am a tipper and it would have been given according to the service provided. I felt violated. You ask me for a rating but you are not accepting what I say because it’s not a perfect rating. Kay was a great waitress
