Mac N Cheese
Two fried piece catfish that will have you coming back for more
Wasn’t ADA compliant as far as seating at a booth vs a high table with hard to get in chairs. The owner was amazing and corrected other errors
GOOD FOOD and great atmosphere. Service was helpful and prices were fair. I would definitely visit again.
Family fun and great energy. Definitely will come back again.
The environment was nice the food was very good and very spacious
The cabbage was not completely done and the yams were too sweet. The fried chicken was very good
The food was okay no real seasonings and the menu wasn’t very big but the service was awesome.
Thank you for having us for my daughter's 16th birthday.
She had a blast and love every part of her meal.
TJ was great and quick to fix our needs and answer any of our questions, can't wait to visit again.
I enjoyed my second time there I’ll look forward to come back
Food was excellent as ALWAYS!
Took about 1hr to get our food I order fried fish, shrimp, macaroni and cheese and French fries. The french fries was terrible they were burnt and had no taste, the macaroni wasn’t good at all and the corn muffin were terrible not taste at all as well
The egg rolls were great! However my main entry did come undercooked.
I’ve visited Southern Kitchen numerous times and they NEVER disappoint!
This was our first time visiting my Neice told us about you’ll since we were coming to Richmond for the day however the food and service was wonderful I will recommend you to others and will come back when in the area the only thing was the parking wasn’t great you need more handicap reserved close to the restaurant we had to walk two blocks on canes stopping on the way sitting on the side walls just the make it to the restaurant that’s the only down fall
Really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. We will definitely return
The food, the atmosphere and customer service is unmatched. We were a party of 6 and value for the quality and quantity is awesome.
We waited 30 minutes for my table upon arrival although I had a reservation and we were a party of 2. Once seated the waiter came over , didnt bring us water but rushed us to place our entree order. After waiting for 10 minutes and having to prompt another employee, we finally received water. We had to wait another 15 minutes for our drinks and cornbread although the table behind us who was seated after us already received their drinks, as well as appetizers and we were the same party size. We placed an appetizer order and it never came , they then gave us our food . The food was good but after the long wait and nonexistent service we no longer had an appetite. The waiter didn’t seem like he wanted to serve us until it was time to bag our food to go. The experience was overall horrible and honestly I won’t be back until they can start to deliver excellent service that is worth the minimum gratuity they place on the check.
So my wife and i came to celebrate our 15 year anniversary and compared to our experience this one was terrible. We arrived at 2:20 our reservation was at 2:15. We were seated at 2:35 at table 6 . We were not serviced until 3:05 , no service ! we have seen the tabletops beside us, three “4 tops “ be able to to get seated and get their appetizer, water, and cornbread before a manger or sever came To the table . At this point the manger comes and apologized but the damage has been done already we had waited 30 min just to be waited on and didn’t get the food till around 3:45 ….. was very disappointed in the service especially for out special day . Ik there are days where it gets hectic but when we arrived there wasn’t a rush of customers at all .
Had a great experience for my birthday at Southern Kitchen. All of the staff was very polite and ensured we had great service. The wait was a bit lengthy from the time we placed our order till the time we received our food. Pluse we didnt get any muffins until 30 minutes after we ordered. All in all, we always have a great time and will be back. I will say that the mac n cheese was a bit salty and other guests in my party said the same.
Only concern was the freeze dried fruit in the drinks as the speed of service but they addressed both and improved them
Fantastic, straightforward southern food. Cheese grits, in particular, were delicious. Owner was visible and super warm and welcoming. Had reservations but were seated in the bar area, which was slightly disappointing because the main dining area looked much nicer. Would definitely return.
Southern kitchen is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten that not only is the full delicious but the service was top notch cleanliness was top notch and the service was just wonderful the food again is absolutely delicious if I could I would eat there on a regular basis everything was wonderful I will be back again and again thank you for everything
I absolutely loved Southern Kitchen. It was my first time & I definitely will be returning. I love the fact that it is reservation only so the vibe is top tier & its not crowded or too much in general.
This restaurant never disappoints. Service was top notch, food was consistent & tasted amazing, and the nice jazz music set the atmosphere. This is by far my favorite place to go. I’m so critical of every place I visit, but the owner gets it. She understands what’s important and they deliver each and every time. If you haven’t been you must make your reservation ASAP. You will not be disappointed!!!!
We were excited to try this place to experience some real southern cooking. Overall… eh. I wasn’t blown away or equally disappointed. Just eh, average. Corn meal muffins were delicious! Fried chicken dishes were average, although I would say the chicken and waffles rated higher. Service was excellent other than the fact we waited extra long for the chicken and waffles dishes to arrive. But, as I mentioned, they tasted the best so maybe it was worth the wait?? Overall, mixed reviews. Sorry, wish I had something better to say.
The food and service was excellent… It’s a great places for a romantic dinner for two
It was a great experience. Food and service was fantastic. Can’t wait to come back
Authentic delicious food in a beautiful setting. But make sure you get a reservation!
Best southern food in Richmond! Great taste and service. I had the catfish Mac and cheese and candied yams and they were incredible! Highly recommend.
Very good...food was great! I would highly recommend this restaurant and will be going again...soon!

10/10 recommend!! food was amazing, service was awesome and atmosphere was PERFECT. Did i mention the food was AMAZING
Enjoyed thorough Dining experience: Delicious Food, large portions, Decor, Service, Staff and Wait time!
The ambiance of the restaurant was amazing . The food was delicious. You have to try the Southern Rolls they were hot fresh and unique . The owner even came over to check on how our meal was .
Loved everything! We had driven up from Norfolk and was celebrating a birthday. The food was wonderful, will go back again someday.
The food was fantastic and the service was also on point. I will be coming back to try more items on the menu.
From beginning to end the experience was so nice. Everyone was very professional and friendly. You dine in a relaxed-cozy atmosphere. The food is sooo good. Our waitress was friendly and on-top of our needs. This is such a nice place to dine for singles, couples, and/or families.
10/10 would recommend to anyone who loves southern cooking
