Who's that guy who does all those 'honey-do's', Dad of course! Nothing like our award winning fried chicken or savory meatloaf to make him smile for the day. Also we will be featuring 1/2 OFF AZ wines for dinner service too!

Great food and service here. There were not many people dining at one on a Friday but everything was spot-on👍
Amazing meal! Wonderful service and atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Very disappointing! I dined here several years ago and enjoyed it so decided to come for Mother's Day.
Mashed potatoes were cold next to chicken that was warm. Mac and Cheese was cold and tasted like soap.
Dinner was overall really disappointing.
Loved it! Went for Mother’s Day brunch. Outside patio is great but inside and bar are nice too. Great options, delicious, winner! Can’t wait to go back.
Nice place, friendly people, average service and food. The mac-n-cheese was real good. The meatloaf and salmon both uninspired. We love supporting the neighborhood so we'll give them another shot for sure.
Although we went during a time that wasn’t busy, the service was very slow. The food was overpriced and not that good. Will not be recommending to friends.
Great Atmosphere, friendly servers, great food selections
Everything was very good, except they kept running out of dishes and wines that we wanted to order...
Being from South Carolina this place felt like I was in downtown Charleston eating amazing familiar southern fare!
Food is always consistent, cocktails are always yummy. Only negative is sometimes the noise Negative gets really loud and it’s hard to have a conversation.
We have fined several times at southern rail and really enjoyed the food and the service.
We book a reservation for a table of 12 for our sons college graduation dinner. We wanted this to be a special dinner to celebrate his graduation. They had a nice table ready for us and then it just went downhill from there. Terrible service. We waited I don’t know how long to order. Our server girl had the personality of a rock. It took forever for our food to arrive. And no mention of “hey what are we celebrating here?” Or anything. And then here’s your check. Bye. Very very disappointed with our service and we won’t be coming back.
Good food and great service. I recommend the fried chicken, but it is a huge portion. It can easily feed 2 people. The beignets are great for dessert.
Fabulous staff! We were well taken care of. Food was DELICIOUS! The ambiance is wonderful!
It was a lovely evening me and my wife enjoyed celebrating our 6yr anniversary early here it was really great food and we really enjoyed the live jazz band looking forward to plenty more visits in the future.
Great dining experience!!
Great food, great service, and the patio is amazing!
Delicious with great service and atmosphere.
Very good for a sunday easter brunch. Perfect to slam a bloody mary on the lord's day! The food was fantastic. Shrimp and grits were on point. The meatloaf was great. The chicken and even the wrap. We got deviled eggs as well and they were extra devilish for the easter bunny. Good stuff!
Absolutely loved the atmosphere at this restaurant. Our server Adam was helpful, friendly and attentive. He urged me to get the fried chicken when I was unsure what to get...it came piping hot, crunchy and delicious. Could have used a bit more seasoning but still a real winner.
Great food, great ambiance! Not as busy as I thought it’d be. Definitely will be back!
We love the fired chicken on Wednesdays. The collard greens are delicious.
Delicious food in a marvelous environment with great service. The only drawback is that it can be loud because of traffic and light rail which makes hearing a challenge sometimes.
It's wonderful to sample delicious food with a Southern flavor. We get tired of Southwestern cuisine in so many restaurants, so this is a welcomed change. The okra appetizer is great, and the shrimp po'boy outstanding. The final bill is also quite reasonable considering how great the food is.
Enjoyed 3 appetizers, the deviled eggs, the rice balls and fried green tomatoes which were all delicious. For dinner I had the Fried Chicken which was a solid choice, I really enjoyed the Collard Greens. An the finally was the Red Velvet cake which was excellent. Fun evening!
We had dinner at Southern Rail the night before and lunch on Monday. I think that speaks well for Southern Rail
I was so looking forward to this restaurant because I had seen it featured on Check Please with rave reviews. I am from the south, and this is NOT southern food. It was small portions of very expensive imitations of what someone thinks southern food is. The waitress even rang our check up wrong. Also, no refills on our sodas were offered, or dessert options either. Maybe this place used to be good, but it has really gone downhill. Very expensive for such poor ambiance and small portions of so-so food. I will not return.
Very good food. A big variety of unique and interesting cocktails. Front patio is noisy. Service was not very attentive for a Sunday brunch.
Great muffuletta burger. Nice vibe. Sat at the bar with a very attentive server.
Food was good, service was good. The only issue came with my service dog. They attempted to give me a table outside because of health laws. When I informed them he was a service dog they stated they didn’t know the law, and again tried to seat me outside. After one more correction and information about the law, we were seated inside. That was the only hiccup to a great night
The shrimp and grits is delicious don’t expect New Orleans game babe – this room is too strong there’s no rice shrimp or okra. They need to serve a red or green pepper jelly with the fried green tomatoes. The devilled eggs are perfect The side serving of collard greens will feed three people, and they are spot on. The bread pudding was not a southern bread pudding and the dessert menu was lacking a banana putting and a peach cobbler. If the restaurant would like to know how to serve in the truly southern way and capture A loyal following, please contact me.
It went for my husbands birthday and I changed my reservation times and amount multiple times. They were always do friendly and accommodating. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the bar and three tables next to it and enjoyed the basketball game on TV. The drinks, food and desserts were all amazing! Our waiter/bartender was absolutely perfect! Can’t wait to go back again! Thank you
Southern Rail has been phenomenal both times I have been there. This time it was m for my birthday while my parents were in town for the first time since I’ve moved out here (2 years).
My father is permanently disabled and Southerb Rail was on the ball with providing a seating arrangement for him and 5 other people.
Service was quick, efficient, and very patient. My family likes to take their time deciding what to eat 😂.
Overall it was a great experience and the food was an outstanding take on some southern classics.
Highly highly recommend.
While enjoying our meal on the patio we could smell cigarette smoke. I took the liberty of asking 2 women, both smoking outside the bookstore to please move away. I said “I want you to enjoy your cigarette and I want to enjoy my meal, would you please smoke elsewhere?” They graciously moved along but we could still inhale their second hand smoke. We recommend this establishment post no smoking signs along its exterior deck/sidewalk area. Thank you for considering this suggestion.
Aaron is the best waiter ever!! Highly recommend this restaurant for a taste of great southern food!!
We were very pleased with our visit to Southern Rail. The decor and lighting was perfect for a nice date night. Our server was great and was very knowledgeable about the food.
The food was incredible! My Salmon dish was the best I've ever had. Our appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes was unbelievable! I am still craving it. We will definitely be headed back to this spot!
First time dining at Southern Rail. Food was great - fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, shaved vegetable salad, all prepared well.
Service was poor. Our party of four had reservations. When we arrived, there was no host or hostess to greet or to sit us, for at least 5 minutes. Finally were seated on the patio (which we requested). Our server seemed attentive - at first. But, he was absent for most of our meal. Our order took much longer to come out than we would have liked.
You can get better southern cuisine at Cracker Barrel. Green fried tomatoes were good.
Outstanding food and drinks in a comfortable atmosphere.
Excellent waiter and kindness in working with my food allergies. Love this place
