This restaurant was suggested by a friend. We thought we were going for Brunch but were mistaken that it did not start until 12pm when the website states 11am. So we were given just the plain breakfast menu. It was three of us who dined and 2 of us had to wait over 30 minutes for our order. The waitress did not check back and was unaware that we did not get our food. Once we got our food it was ok. I had the grits and eggs and they were good, the pancakes with peaches were also ordered at the table. They were delicious once they came to the table. I am not sure if it was an off day, however, I am told it is the usual service for this restaurant.

The restaurant was dated, service was outstanding, food left a lot to be desired for.
The salt in the spinach which was the bed for the salmon was way too much, such that it tasted very bitter. The shrimp & grits was very spicy. Now, the side dish of sweet potatoes was amazing and great. Loved it.
My suggestion would be to at least sand and polish the table edges and remove the plastic meats hanging/on display in the waiting area.

Southern Art is possibly my favorite restaurant I have been to since living in Atlanta. The atmosphere is great, the staff is incredible, and the food is absolutely amazing. Chef Art Smith brings his own twist to classic comfort food; adding the elegance for a special date night, and brilliant flavors, while preserving all the comfort you expect. With a great selection of wine and bourbon (whisky) and a fantastic dessert menu, this restaurant has immediately become one of my favorites and I will be going back in the future.

Went to Southern Art to celebrate my son’s birthday. He is a bourbon fan. He really enjoyed the Bourbon flight and they were flexible and allowed him to substitute one that he previously tried for a new one. The new one, an Atlanta produced bourbon, was excellent. The recommendations for dinner were very good. The service was outstanding. Management came by to make sure everything was OK. They gave us information about an upcoming event.

In addition to the bourbon flight, two of us had a great cocktail.

I will definitely return with local friends and out of town guests.

I wish I came here on a normal day for their menu. I came on Valentine’s Day and their menu for this day was a little disappointing. My husband got the fried hen which he barely ate and our server didn’t even ask why. I got the salmon and it was decent. Nothing special about it. The desserts were lovely. I ordered the “death of chocolate” but they ran out so he ended up giving me two desserts, which was nice.

This is my second time here, and the food is delicious though pricier than similar restaurants in the Atlanta area. Especially love the fried chicken and fried Cornish hen. The wait staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu.

Overall really good. Probably closer to 4.5/5 than 4/5 but that wasn't an option. Got the fried chicken and that was tasty but thought it was a little dry. The mashed potatoes with chicken gravy was amazing as were the brussel sprouts. Also really enjoyed the cheddar rosemary biscuits with maple butter. Service was also good.

We called the day before to make sure that the Sunday Brunch menu was going to be available and were told it would be. When we arrived, the host was very friendly and the staff as well, but after we were seated, we were told that the only thing available was the buffet. Ok, except that unlike the 29 dollar price listed on the website, the price, we were told, would be 44 dollars. Sorry, not happening. We were going to leave but the host said we could have anything on the brunch menu, and so we stayed and ordered. The food was fine, nothing special though. The eggs benedict was just ok, bland hollandaise sauce and a bit under done eggs. Despite the congenial staff, we probably won't be going back. Nothing special and way, way over priced.

We went on a Sunday evening. We sat at the Bourbon Bar and had the bourbon sangria which was very good. Then we both had the fried chicken dinner. That was probably the best fried chicken we've ever had. Just the right amount of spice and completely juicy on the inside. The brussel sprouts were delicious as well as the mashed potatoes. This is apparently their signature dish, so I would highly recommend.

We were shocked at this meal. It was amazing! Service was great, atmosphere was incredible. Drinks were very expensive and I would say that was the only negative I could think of. $17 for a Martini .... that’s just silly.

Overall great EXP!

We were guests of hotel where the restaurant is located. We were seated right away and waiter was very cheerful and attentive the whole night. Fried green tomatoes were delish! I had the carbonara which the chef made vegetarian for me and my husband had it the way it was intended to be prepared. Both pastas were very good! For dessert we had the Red Velvet Cake. The cake was really gummy and tasteless. House Sangria was AMAZING! Decor is not the greatest and the lighting is too bright but overall dinner experience was good.

It was a great experience to celebrate New Year’s Day with a bountiful buffet in a wonderful setting and attentive wait staff! My call-out is to be aware of the time you go. We went in time for breakfast. However, they started to prepare for brunch and closed off the buffet. We and others were not able to continue enjoying the spread.

We were not notified at check-in that the breakfast would end at a certain time nor did the wait staff provide a heads-up. I would have certainly appreciated that piece of information.

Even with that said, our experience was memorable to tempt us back.

I went for the fried chicken. It was tasty and I usually don't eat breast but it was juicy. It wasn't the best I've had and it was a little dark for my taste. The fried green tomatoes were delicious and the tomato jam and goat cheese that accompanied them was a nice twist. The other dish we tried was the shrimp and grits and it was just okay. The sausage or ham they used had a strange taste. It didn't taste like andouille which most restaurants use for this dish. The carrott cake was good but I expected more than two muffin bites for the price. I may visit again.
