What a gem! This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend and it did not disappoint! The service was wonderful from the time we entered until the time we left. Our server, Riley, was outstanding and took great care of us. I am salt intolerant and asked for the Shrimp and Grits with little or no salt and it came out perfect! The evening specials were to die for and I found the wine flights to be interesting and fairly priced. DH and I totally enjoyed our meal (and evening) and agreed this will be our new "go to" restaurant.

Outstanding from beginning to end! Complimentary valet service, sensational attentive wait staff that paid attention to every detail, comfortable dining area with outstanding ambiance, and impeccable food! Totally worth the price for a very nice Sunday brunch. We will definitely go back!

So so entrees. Don't order the petite filet - it's hugely overpriced for such small portion (in my case, too much salt!).
However, the desserts were phantastic.
So, mixed feelings.

Really enjoy the service but the food was not as tasty as it usually is.
I got the red snapper special. Way overpriced. Fish fair, risotto was cold.
My wife got same and her fish was over cooked. Server brought out my entree with part of it missing.
Had to point out that it was incomplete. Brought rest promptly.
Dessert average, not best I’ve had.
Not my best meal there but will be back.

Since returning to Memphis, this is one of the best dining experiences I have had. It was recommended to me by a business colleague and I have to say it was worth every penny. As a marketing professional I always look for upscale restaurants to take clients and guests to while in town and will surely be returning in the future for business and personal.

We’ve had Southern Social dinners several times, but never experienced brunch. It was INCREDIBLE. The amazing fried chicken on the menu paired with delicious waffles and an incredible brioche French toast was just a few of the delicious items we ordered. We absolutely love the Southern Social dinner and, if possible, the brunch even more.

Southern Social exceeded expectations from the time the door was opened for my wife and I as we entered until we left completely satisfied two hours later. As good as the food was, the thing we remember most is how polite and welcoming everyone was as we were seated and waited on. The service was easily the best we have had dining in Memphis.

We will gladly return.

From the time we pulled up in our car, we were made to feel special. This place offers valet service and the server even offered to have valet to pull our car around when we were ready to go. The staff asks if there is a special occasion for the visit. When we told them it was out anniversary, we got a champagne toast and 2 chocolate strawberries, which was very nice. The portions are a little small but I would definitely go back.

We loved the welcoming atmosphere and felt like we were appreciated. Everything from the appetizers to the entree and dessert was excellent. We can't wait to return and try other items on the menu. Very friendly atmosphere. Our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing and was very sweet and helpful. They even have complimentary valet service! Very satisfied and would highly recommend!

For my friends birthday they gave us complimentary champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, french cookies, blackberry creme brulee w a candle, and lemon sorbet...all on the house!

Service was friendly and impeccable from valet to exit. Setup birthday reservation for my girlfriend. Initially sat us in the bar, which was just too loud. They we're able to move us to the dining room and a much larger table. This was the only complaint to an otherwise amazing experience.

Great food, great service.
We were greeted with Valet parking and again at the front door and reception desk. I made a reservation and I'm glad I did, a couple walked in right before us and were told the next regular table was three hours. Every step of the meal was well attended from the drinks to each course. My water glass was never less than half full. We ended up splitting an app, salad, and entree and the server was happy to accommodate our requests. We left the restaurant happy for the experience, the great food and service.
