I generally love Southern Social but this occasion was much different. We were seated on the patio and it was raining, so the floor of the patio was covered in water puddles. We ordered our food and it came so quick we were amazed. The problem is that the food was all cold. A medium rare ribeye was so rare that the edges were still bleeding. The mushrooms were lukewarm at best and the Brussel spouts were cold and mushy. I’ve never had a bad food experience there...until now. It was very disappointing. I won’t be back for awhile.

Our go to place for everything. The Pimento cheese sandwiches are to die for. The fish dishes are amazing too. Easy to make replacements if you are on specific diet or have allergies.

We started with the fried pimento cheese sandwiches and lobster ravioli. Both were well made, though my wife would have preferred more of the pimento cheese taste. Our entrees were the shrimp and grits (my wife) and the seared diver scallops. Again, both were excellent. The shrimp and grits had a great smoky flavor to them and the butter sear on the scallops was excellent.

Without question, simply the BEST dining experience you’ll find in the mid-south! Even in this Covid era you are greeted and served warmly by the staff while experiencing a superior meal. Perfect for a small business gathering, dinner with friends, or an intimate meal with one’s love . . . . I have complete confidence Southern Social will provide exactly what you had hoped.

Our experience was wonderful and I could not have asked for better. It was an excellent atmosphere. Our server was Nicolette and she did an excellent job. As we walked to our table, everyone we passed welcomed us. The bar was very well stocked with one of the best bourbon selections I have seen in the Memphis area. We started out with the deviled eggs and were not disappointed. My wife had the seafood pasta and I had the fried chicken and both tasted wonderful. They were large portions so we were able to have our leftovers for lunch the next say. For desert, we had the bread pudding and it was an excellent choice. And as we were leaving, each person took the time to thank us for joining them for dinner and wished us a good evening. Overall, this is one of my best dining experiences in Memphis. We will definitely be back!

Felt a little rushed. Would have liked more time in between servings. Food was amazing as usual. Mashed potatoes are a little too salty. Love and highly recommend a wine flight. Large group seated next to us. They were a little loud. It was very dark and difficult to read the menu. So we saw lots of phone flashlights, little annoying at times. Definitely recommend. Food and service is always top notch here.

My filet was seasoned and cooked perfectly! Hubby’s black bass was also delicious. First time having the Mac and cheese, oh my, best I’ve ever had! Austin was a very friendly and attentive server! Great to talk football with manager Greg! Thank you for a lovely evening!

I was extremely disappointed in the food at our recent visit. The crab cake was bland. The Brie was not warm. The wedge salad was not a wedge but simply a small disc of iceberg lettuce with some scant toppings. The brussel sprouts were over cooked. Our waitress brought us another helping and they were also over cooked. We chose not to eat them. The steak that my friend ordered tasted spoiled. I usually love going to Southern Social and visit quite often, but I will not be returning my. The food is terribly overpriced for the quality.

This place is absolutely amazing and our new favorite place to dine. Jake was the best server we could have ever wished for and all of the staff was so accommodating. The pork chop and fried chicken were delectable and the honey biscuit was the best I ever had. The Mac n cheese melted in your mouth. Due to the manager telling me incorrectly about the crepe brûlée, he comped my dessert. That is customer service at its finest. I couldn’t ask for a better experience and will be back over and over based on this first experience and that we now know that “this is the place to be”
