    Cannot believe I didn't know about this place already. Sal, was top notch mixing drinks and conversation...I had the Gin Gimlet, several of them. Daniel was our server...he was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and a pleasure. Sherri seemed to be the front of the house manager, and she was also extremely polite. The food was outstanding...my wife had the BBQ Shrimp, and I had the BBQ baked oysters. For dinner, I had the short ribs over risotto (risotto was out of this world), and my wife had flounder that the kitchen was able to blacken at her request. This place was amazing, and cannot wait to come back again.

    Fantastic food. Server was amazing. Food was good. Great portions and tasty ingredients. Drinks were good as well. Only thing was one of the deserts was like it came out of a Food Lion cold box, can't' remember the exact name but chocolate pecan pie, something - skip that sucker for sure. Cold, hard, dry. Other than that, we will be back as the rest of the food was great.

    Started with the BBQ Shrimp, so delicious, the sauce and bread for dipping could be a meal alone...so good. Main couse I had the fried catfish, very tasty, perfectly fried, not greasy, side of pole beans ok. Enjoyed their twist on a smoked old-fashioned - Prefect!

    We went for brunch on Sunday for the first time. Three of us all ordered something different and it was ALL delicious. Personally, I loved the catfish and the grits!! The mimosa pitcher was also enjoyed. BUT, maybe even better than the food was the impeccable service throughout our entire visit. Also, thanks for the slice of key lime pie for my birthday!!

    First the glasses smelled the dishwasher is not doing a good job. Second the food was not hot I had the farmhouse eggs Benedict it was luke warm and the bacon was so tough it was like beef jerky. Also the water glasses dripped on your clothes every time you had a drink. Overall very disappointing.

    Our first time at Southern Pecan was a great experience from the beginning. We were able to make a reservation and happily the tables are not so close together as to make the atmosphere noisy. Our server was excellent, knew all the specials, and was quick at every turn. The food was outstanding! We both tried the catfish and it was perfectly prepared, light and crispy, and served hot. Will definitely be back. I wish I had taken a picture since it was so well presented!

    The food was bland and the presentation was poor. Deviled Egg appetizer was under seasoned. Collard Greens were over cooked with a slimy texture. Baked Mac-n-Cheese was well toasted on top but appeared to be boxed macaroni and cheese underneath. Beef Brisket tacos consisted of tortilla shells with CUBED brisket on top- brisket was tender but also unseasoned. The Pecan-crusted Catfish, Parmesan Oysters, Espresso Martini and the French fries were the only palatable items.

    We made reservations and were able to get in right away. Our server was Malichai. He informed us of the special and when we asked his opinion on food items on the menu, he gave us good feedback. He was courteous, attentive and friendly. We ordered the quail wings as an appetizer, which were great. The sauce was delicious! I ordered the special and it was amazing! My husband ordered porkchop and he was very pleased with it. Our overall experience was very good and we'll visit again, for sure.

    We had been to this restaurant about a month ago with a couple of friends from out of town. We all agreed the food was delicious. Different story last night. My husband was happy with his meal, jambalaya. However, I had baked cod which was definitely not good, dry and burnt around the edges. I requested some melted butter, the waiter brought me some kind of fish sauce, requested butter again. By the time I got it the fish was cold. I should have returned the order right away. While my cosmopolitan cocktail and peach cobbler was delicious. I was very disappointed with my entree. Also the hostess told us outside was heated, there was only one heater turned on. So only heated at one end by the door. “Disappointed diner”.

    The customer service quality was poor. It took someone about 20 min from being seated to ask us if we would like anything to drink other than water or take our orders (which another server who was not ours had to do because he noticed we had not been approached but anyone- thank you to him!). Our sever finally greeted us after about 30 min of being seated. We got there at 7:30 and didn’t eat until about 8:45. He let us know there was come confusion with the table assignments however, after the hiccup the service remained the same, poor. The food was underwhelming. The complimentary cornbread was cold(both servings). We got the half dozen Parmesan oysters as our starter, very mediocre. Our entrees were just okay - shrimp and grits and the red fish and red beans and rice. We did not order additional drinks. I love quality dining and this experience just did not do it for us.

    The service was below average. No attentativeness. Had to wait on our check. The Country-fried steak was a big disappointment..meat was very thin, it all kinda fell apart when the attempt to cut it and eat it was made. The Catfish dinner was o.k., but a meager portion. Ambiance was pretty much zero. We’re aged, and that’s too often a factor in the quality of service and attention to detail we experience. Sorry, but we’ve crossed Southern Pecan off our list
