    This is a hidden jewel that must be explored. The moment you arrive, you are greeted by not just one person, but any staff person that has eye contact with you. How refreshing is that! Our server Zack was over the top. He was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and gracious as he took care of us. The food is consistently excellent. My hat is off to the manager of this establishment. This is our go to restaurant. It may very well become yours.

    3rd time at Southern Social and food was the primary let down. Ordered the country fried steak and my wife had the fried chicken. Steak was underdone and the breading became soggy after only a couple of minutes at the plate. Sides were good including mashed potatoes and brussels, however, both came somewhat cold. My wife's chicken was large and filling, however, the batter was very underseasoned. All in all a bit of a loss which was sad, since I've always really enjoyed by food there.

    Birthday dinner for the youngest. Service was excellent. Disappointed they didn't serve Menomi wine. Food was excellent. Only disappointment was the petite filet was way too petite. Kinda pricey, especially with drinks but.it was a great evening.

    Excellent choice for meeting with friends from out of town. They had never been here before but heard about it from others who had. All were impressed with the service and friendliness of the staff; the pork chop was a big hit as was the strawberry short cake and lemon ice box pie. Hope to be back soon. Thank you

    Brought my husband for his birthday. The drinks and appetizers were good but the waitress forgot to put in our entrees so we waited over an hour and ten minutes after appetizers for food. We kept seeing people show up after us receive all their food and eating. It got so late we couldn’t even eat at restaurant once it arrived. We had it boxed and brought it home. I guess what made it worse is that they kept saying kitchen was backed up which didn’t make sense since other people were receiving their food. They didn’t allow us to cancel our entrees which was unfortunate since it still took more than half an hour to receive after we asked to cancel. So we pretty much waited for our boxed dinner to go at almost 10pm. They comped our appetizer and drink which was nice but I think the entire dinner should’ve been comped since our birthday celebration was pretty much disappointing. We may go back but not likely any time soon. UPDATE- Management was kind enough to reach out to us to see how they could make up for the bad experience. We greatly appreciate that and are so thankful for the efforts that have been made. We’re hoping to go back soon and give them another chance and possibly have a redemptive birthday dinner.

    Everything was amazing from arriving to leaving. I have a broken leg and on a scooter. As we were approaching the door the valet was helping us just before the manager came out to escort me around the corner up a ramp. The valet got the host to meet us at that door and immediately sat us down. Our server was Payton and she was so attentive and sweet. We never had to ask for anything, all the food and drinks came out delicious. She brought us champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to cheers to 💕 just a wonderful touch to make us feel so special.

    From the moment I entered the entrance, I could be with the staff who became kind and pleasant in all the processes of guidance and serving food. The food also maintained a very good quality from appetizers to salads and steaks, and it was perfect to be prepared to savor the rich aroma from first sip of wine. I felt a bit uncomfortable because the noise around me was sometimes loud, but it was a very satisfying experience because the overall atmosphere was good.
