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.

My husband and I enjoyed celebrating his birthday at Southern Social. The customer service was superb from the moment we entered the restaurant. Our server, Brandi, was phenomenal. Great first impression Southern Social Team!

This is a great place for a quiet relaxing meal, or a small family gathering.
They stay true to the name. The SOUTHERN charm is as thick as molasses on hot biscuit. I don't think there was one worker that didn't greet us on the way to our table. The wait staff was constantly monitoring drinks, clearing plates, but not in the rude in your face way.
The food is well worth the money. Portions are acceptable for the price point. No dainty meals here. We definitely enjoyed every minute.

This was our 3rd visit. Can not beat the service and the food ! I am addicted to the deviled eggs appetizer so I guess I will never know any of the other appetizers! The Fried Chicken was as good as they say and the Redfish and Grits was delicious. For dessert we shared a Blackberry Strudel....and we were still talking about it the next day! Great place to celebrate an Anniversary!

Excellent experience. The service was superior and the food was amazing. Fried pimento cheese appetizer and the scallops entrée or two of the best menu items in the Memphis area!

We love Southern Social! However, tonight was a little odd. They asked us if we were celebrating anything special, which we said we were (our 20th wedding anniversary). They congratulated us and later brought us two glasses of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. We thanked them and continued our meal. When the check came...THEY CHARGED US FOR THE CHAMPAGNE AND STRAWBERRIES that we didn’t even ask for!! It didn’t ruin the night, but did seem tacky and a little wrong to charge us for something we didn’t ask for.

Absolutely best fine dining experience we could have asked for. We were promptly greeted and sat by the hostess. She was very sweet and accommodating. Our server was Daniel. He was absolutely fantastic. He made fantastic recommendations on appetizers and wine. He was knowledgeable about the menu and we loved his suggestions. He was very sweet and took great care of us while also allowing us to spend time together for our anniversary. We took Daniels suggestion and tried the steak egg rolls for an appetizer and they were probably the best thing I’ve ever tasted. That is until our entrees arrived. I ordered the petite filet and loaded mashed potatoes. The filet was cooked exactly how I like and had the most amazing flavor. The loaded mashed potatoes did not disappoint either. We decided on the chocolate chip creme brûlée for desert and this was by far the best creme brûlée I have ever had. The ambiance inside of the restaurant was wonderful. The dining room was quiet and dim and romantic. We had the most amazing wedding anniversary here and we will definitely be coming back soon. I highly recommend southern social for celebrations and anniversaries and I would also recommend Daniel for a server. Thank you for making our first wedding anniversary special.

My wife and I chose to celebrate our 48th anniversary by trying someplace we had not been before. Southern Social was an excellent choice! The atmoshpete was very lively. The food and service were exceptional! We were graciously met by the hostesses with a Happy Anniversary greeting. Our server, Chris, was outstanding. He was very cordial and attentive the entire evening. The manager, Mike, stopped by our table to acknowledge our anniversary and thanked us for choosing to celebrate with them. The crab cake appetizer was fantastic. The surf and turf, brussel sprouts and red skin mashed potatoes were definitely a great entree choice. Southern Social will be among our best places to get great food and service. We will go again!

As always you cannot and will never be disappointed dining at Southern Social. I cannot get enough of this place for the food, supreme service and beautiful ambiance. Had a server, Caroline who had just started and you would never have known as she did a fabulous job taking care of us. So no matter whether the servers have been there for a long time or just starting, the level of excellence is always above expectations. Definitely a 5 star restaurant!!!!!

Fantastic food, excellent service, and a classic Southern ambiance! My only complaint, and this is nitpicking is that the silverware (with the exception of the steak knives) is very cheap and lightweight when compared to the quality of everything else. It would be nice if they offered a paleo/whole30 menu option.
