We have been here before and had a good experience, all lunches. Even though it wasn't crazy busy for a Sunday afternoon, the front desk staff one man and a few women, were snarky towards everyone. It was like watching a group of gossipy little bullies. Some one needs to tell them not to snark so loud and obvious.
The food was...OK Menus items sounded much better than they came out. This place is officially off of my list. To many other Southern styled place to spend $$$ at.

The customer service is absolutely fabulous. Frankie was very attentive and very friendly to my friends and I. The manager also was so friendly and helpful. Even though it was busy when we ate, Frankie took time to check in with us and chat. The food was delicious and the cocktails were on point. Definitely recommend if you're looking for some comfort sort of food and some spirits.

Had to wait 15 mins despite my reservation, the tables were sticky, and my portion was small and the chicken was hard. Always glad to try southern food but I'll be looking elsewhere in the Boston area.

Nice southern cuisine. Today I shared the griddled cornbread - dense and moist served with honey butter and raspberry jam. Wife had great shrimp and grits with tasso ham and andouille sausage bits and tasty red gravy. Hubby had a cup of gumbo and chicken and waffles for his meal. Both were quite enjoyable.
Great, friendly service but timing of the servings was a bit off. We did enjoy the cuisine!

Father's day brunch. Excellent choice to go to Southern Kin! Best corn bread followed by the best fried chicken and waffles with a little kick, and the stuffed French Toast was thee best I've tried in many years! Owner Marc Berkowitz has hit a home run with this place. Friendly staff, Great service and Southern Hospitality food!
Oh, and the Key Lime Pie was just the right dessert!
Can't wait to return!

Southern Kin Cookhouse is one of my favorite restaurants. The sides are great, the chicken is crispy and the dishes are unique yet clearly southern. We were celebrating a friends' engagement and I mentioned that in the reservation. Our waitress never mentioned it and was very inattentive throughout the night, making the celebration not as celebratory. However, the cornbread is phenomenal. Like the best cornbread I've had since I left home. The biscuits are good but the cornbread... anyway.

I got the fried chicken and thought the dish as a whole was meh. The sides were underwhelming but the maple chicken is so good. The brussel sprouts two-ways were also great.

Would definitely go again!

We enjoyed a lovely night out! Very accommodating for me, as I use a walker. Handicap stall in women's bathroom was almost completely dark and needed much better lighting, but that being said, it was very clean. Food was fantastic, server attentive. We come here for special occasions, and we were not disappointed! My husband is from NC, so he appreciates the true southern cooking. Please bring back FRIED OKRA!

Second time there. The fried chicken was seasoned very well. We sent it back for all dark meat. The kitchen messed up waitress request. The manager and waitress were apologetic. The bucket came back excellent. I had a watermelon cocktail that the waitress recommended. It was to die for. Been trying to get back there after the first time but a had not been able to get a reservation

I was very disappointed with this place, it had a great look to it, i went on mother's day they said they had no reservations so I made one online, when I got there they had plenty of tables and walk ins were being seated right away so I could've came way earlier, I ordered the bucket of fried chicken they have which cost 39 I asked for all white and I knew there would be an up charge but wasn't told how much to my surprise they charged me 69 for 8 pieces, it is what it is, but the food was not good, all three of us didn't like anything in our meals and our bill was over 200, the food in my opinion had no flavor, the greens were very sweet and crunchy I guess if you like greens that way then you'll like these, the mac n cheese had no flavor, my son for the 1st time ever didn't eat his steak, ribs were ok, I wouldn't call this soul food more like a bbq joint, a big 200 dollar disappointment

Love this place! As a Texas/Virginia transplant finding decent southern food can be a challenge. I would definitely say the biscuits and sausage gravy meet southern standards and if you can nail down those two, your on the right track.

Good food, good restaurant, and good atmosphere.

The waitress took our order fairly fast, but she didn’t check on us for at least 15-20 minutes (I checked), nor did any other staff, even though we were in a high traffic area. There was no offer for a water refill or anything.

The table had not been wiped down properly and there was residual jam on the table that got on my clothes. Other than that, great experience and will return!

We got there and our waiter was great and got us waters and then we said we were going to wait to order so he would periodically check on us. Ordered the chips and onion dip and he said that he told them to put less salt (we didn’t even ask) and they came out perfect. Turkey leg and fried chicken was great as well. Would recommend to others and would come back 100%.

Initially I heard great things about Southern Kin from my friends and also through Yelp. I finally got to try it after a year and I have to say I am deeply disappointed. The fried chicken my date and I got was super dry and pretty much tasteless. I have to admit I would choose KFC chicken over the chicken at Southern Kin ANY day! Also, I was looking forward to the desserts, because I thought you can't go wrong with a chocolate pie, but boy was I dead wrong! The pie was so stale, that we couldnt even cut any part of the crust off. Moreover, the service and value of the food didn't do the restaurant any justice. The waitress was rather snippy and I felt rushed during every course of the meal. I hope other customers don't get mislead by the unsuitable and mind boggling 4 star review at Southern Kin. I hope someday it can actually live up to it's reputation.
