Aptly named for its locale, Southern Social nestles up to the old Southern Railway’s historic Germantown Depot and sits adjacent to Southern Avenue.

Owners of downtown Memphis’ Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar have opened Southern Social. The top tier fine dining restaurant will reflect the high standards established at Flight.

The restaurant features a chef-inspired menu, offering fresh seafood and prime steaks. Southern Social brings exceptional specialty cocktails and Flight’s award-winning wine selections.

I made a reservation through open table and still had to wait for about 10 minutes. The room was crowded and loud and the air conditioning was not up to the task of keeping the room cool enough for the crowd. The waiters and management seemed to be very nice and helpful.

My husband and I had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary at Southern Social. The employees were very nice, and eager to turn our evening into great experience. The food was phenomenal. We started with the Fried Pimento Cheese Sandwiches. They are a must! We had the surf and turf and Atlantic halibut entrees. They were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The waitress treated us to dessert. We shared the Apple Cobbler Crumble. It was great, but I didn't eat much because I was already stuffed. I'd love to go back with my friends to share appetizers and try the wine flights. Thanks Southern Social for such a wonderfully memorable meal. We will definitely be back!

I enjoy Southern Social. You must have a reservation or get there by 5:30 to get a table in the bar. The food was good. They had to remake our drinks as the grey goose martini with a splash of olive juice was too salty to drink. The waitress was very gracious and accommodating. I miss Laddie the bartender! I wish they would add a few more salads to the menu. My husband loves the fried chicken and it is an added bonus. Maybe a pasta sometime? All in all I personally have had a good experience at this restaurant.

Very charming venue in the heart of Germantown; lots of options on the menu to choose from; excellent meal; even better service. Our waitress was very attentive. A bit pricey, but worth every cent.

Second time here. Servers were distracted by the big table she had so my wife and I were ignored making the service just like anywhere else. Food portions were small and not hot. Manager did tell us they were done with reservations so we can stay if we want to. I guess we should have been leaving faster?!

The meal was enjoyable, but we were not aware that they only serve brunch on Sundays, and we were looking for a lunch menu. For brunch, it was a little overpriced, so the value wasn’t that high.

Every aspect of our meal was fantastic. Service is impeccable. Brie, beef Wellington and seafood chowder for appetizers were wonderful. The halibut with risotto was incredible; as was husband the 20 oz ribeye with Brussel sprouts that my husband devoured. We have been twice, and give Southern Social our most excellent recommendation.

First time I have ever ordered a bottle of Chardonnay and it was brought to the table warm out of the storage room. Waiter brought ice bucket to chill it, but delayed the enjoyment of
the wine for at least 20 min. Waiter did bring a couple of glasses of a house Chardonnay to drink while our bottle chilled; however, the wine was not of the same quality of the bottle
we ordered. The large room with the high ceiling is very loud and we could not hear each other ver well in a normal tone of conversation.

It had been a while since I dined at Southern Social only due to a busy schedule. I went back again and wondered why I didn't come back sooner. This is truly one of the best restaurants in the entire Germantown/Memphis area. They never disappoint! From the moment you walk up to the front door until he leave, the service, food, atmosphere is the best every single time. So don't let a busy schedule keep you from dining at Southern Social, you will be so very happy you did and will look forward to coming back!

The food was fantastic, especially the Rack of Lamb with the au gratin potatoes. Bread is not automatically brought to your table, not is it on the menu. I guess you have to ask for it. Our server was just so-so. Not very attentive and had long periods when we didn't see him. But, that didn't dampen how great the food it. Highly recommend!
