The food was great, the wait staff attentive and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We were not rushed and had a great evening
Fried Chicken was amazing! Salad was delicious and good bourbon menu.
Being from the South I had a craving for the food I grew up with. There’s a Cajun restaurant right across the street from me but what I wanted was food from Virginia and North Carolina and they had it for sure. Can’t wait to try their brunch and dinner menus!
Great food, great staff, not the cheapest food in the world but well worth the price. 4.7 outta 5 in my opinion
Amazing food!! Great with kids or for a couples night out.
Great food, somewhat uninspiring service - especially being questioned about my service dog that was wearing his vest. The fried chicken and the pimiento cheese are something worth trying!
everything was perfect, cant wait to go back again!!!
Amazing food! Fantastic services. Consistently poor quality desserts.
This place is always outstanding. Their food is a new twist on southern classics and the service is great.
Great food, tremendous service - an absolute must go-back!
Dinner menu is way better than brunch! Great spot!
The best brunch we've had. The service was friendly and prompt. The bloody Mary was delicious too!!
Fantastic okra and the cornbread is delicious. I liked the runner beans and apparently the spicy chicken is amazing (a.t. My friend). Sat outside so relatively quiet. Inside was very very cold from a/c (on a cool summer evening). So not sure I’d want to sit inside. TBD.
Delicious! My fiance had the chicken breakfast sandwich and he said it was the best breakfast sandwich he has ever eaten. Definitely will go back!
Great service and excellent drinks. We visited during Brunch and enjoyed a chicken little breakfast sandwich and a mushroom omelette. We started with the pimento cheese popovers, definitely the star of the day!
The food was phenomenal, the menu was short and sweet, the drinks were really good - even the off menu requests. The staff was super attentive, and was great about clearing the table between courses without interrupting or taking food we weren't done with. And the cracked pepper honey is as good as they say it is.
Very very good for double date!!
Ribs and pulled pork were unspectacular.
Good food if you’re looking for that southern vibe. They do a good job with the southern flair. You have to try the Pinochle drink if you’re a whiskey person. It’s unique and worth a try. Pretty good value on the food all things considered. We’ll be back!
Had a 2:45pm reservation but was not informed the restaurant was closing at 3pm.
The servers were kind and prompt. Obviously, the time issue was not their fault.
The atmosphere is so open and covered in antiques. Love the ceiling of upside-down lamps.
I'd been here before for dinner and had a good experience, albeit cold mac and cheese. I thought I would give it another shot and booked it for Mother's Day. The brunch menu was incredibly limited and not one dish shined, besides the fried chicken. The scrambled eggs with lox was too salty. The Chicken Little sandwich is served with a Kraft single. I like this but you might want to warn people who expect a higher quality cheese for the price.
They have an amazing space that would be POPPIN' if the food was improved. Especially considering you have a "kitchen appreciation tax" added to your bill at the end.
Great fried chicken and bread putting. Service was average. Very difficult to find parking around there. May be we will do a take out next time.
The brunch was okay - the fried chicken was good but they said they were running out so we felt rushed to order it first. They brought that out before we even placed the rest of our order. The waffle was not good and flavorless. The stuffed corn cakes were worth ordering and the shrimp and grits were fine. Overall, for the price, I wouldn't go back again.
An amazing experience. My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to have brunch and this place didn't dissapoint us. We sat at the bar and the bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable. The drinks were on point and the food (we had about 5 dishes) were mesmerizing . We'll be back for sure.
I always love going to Southern Proper, it's a local gem.
It was a busy night for them and couldn’t seat us for a while after our reservation time and made sure to show us they cared - even bought us a round!
We've been a few times to Southern Proper, and this time the food was better than ever. Especially liked the burnt ends poutine dish, the pimento cheese dish, and the BBQ picnic platter. Artichoke dish disappointed. Bring back the Brussels sprouts - they were out of this world. Biscuits can't be beat.
Always great as usual!! They made a spot for us even though we didn’t have a reservation and didn’t rush us out when there was another table after us. Love the food too! Best fried chicken in Boston! And I’m from Atlanta!
This is a fabulous restaurant! Food is always great and service really friendly. We love it here!
Absolutely phenomenal food and service!
A really fun spot. The atmosphere is quirky and service is good. The menu is small and a little overpriced and kind of basic. The fried chicken us yummy but the breading is thick.
Fantastic service. Our server was attentive and friendly, but not overbearing. Food was an A-, a bit greasy if anything. Cocktail list was unique. Lighting was a bit high, but other than that, a comfortable ambiance.
I would return!
Love this place! The food and cocktails are amazing. They have unique twists on southern classics.
Excellent experience. Great food. The bartenders are exceptional.
Great night out at Southern Proper. Would not eat this much every night but this was a great change of pace. Good beer and drink menu, though I think they should add a gin drink to the specialty cocktail offerings. We enjoyed the hush poppies and cauliflower apps and the traditional fried chicken was awesome. Also tried the whole fish which was a little tough to navigate but fun. Wine menu is a little light but hey it’s the South ... drink beer or bourbon! Overall good service and bright airy atmosphere. We enjoyed our night!
Super cute restaurant. Recommend the brunch and am excited to try dinner.
Second time back here and it was even better than I remembered. Amazing food and the staff are so friendly. A place I will keep returning to.
Excellent food and service. Love the decor.
Excellent design of the space, bright, countless thoughtful details. Our waitress was informative and was a pleasure to be around. Food was unique and exceptional, can’t wait to go back.
As the manager said, the food comes out "as it's ready," even though this is not a tapas restaurant. This creates a situation where you either have to be rude and eat while other people don't have food or eat cold food after waiting. Our situation was only made worse when one of the food runners took a meal for our table to another one. We were not informed of this circumstance for about 15 minutes. When we were finally told why the rest of out food was taking so long, we asked if we could have the cold food redone along with the missing food. The old food was taken and then simply brought back out with the fresh food. So it was even colder and just disgusting. I guess they thought we wouldn't notice. Shockingly poor service with unimpressive food and an impractical back-of-house system. Unfortunately, I do not recommend.
