    The service was apathetic at best and the food was average. The pimento cheese appetizer was actually very good but it all went downhill from there. The wedge salad was also fine but the shrimp and grits were a tasteless soup. I was disappointed overall and would not go out of my way to dine here.

    They were so nice to accommodate our party of 3 by letting us enter by porch. We had a 97 yr old who isn’t comfortable going inside a restaurant. Food as usual was delicious!

    Had reservation at 10:00 when restaurant opened for brunch but it appeared they really didn’t plan to open that early. It was 35 minutes before we were able to order and the bar didn’t open even for mimosas until 11:00. Food was good once ordered. I just wish I had known their real schedule and I would have made a reservation for 11:00 am.

    This is a great place for a business lunch. I work near Cumberland and it only takes me 10 minutes to get there. Google maps finds a direct route using uncrowded back streets. Guest who work in the Lenox area can also get there in 10 minutes. Parking is always easy to obtain. Plus it is nice to be able to choose seats indoors or outdoors. I love their kale salad with salmon.

    3 out of 4 meals were very good. ( trout and chicken Marsala). My chopped steak , ordered as medium, was extremely over cooked and dry. Manager did apologize and take it off the bill.

    Southern Bistro is a comfortable, relaxed and flavorful spot. The menu is solid, a little old school in a good way, and the perfect spot to catch up with friends or family. There's something on the menu for everyone. It hits all the expected categories and it's all good. You can't go wrong here.
