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.

We had such a great experience here this week! Our food was beyond good, and the service was wonderful. I truly appreciated the manager helping to make my birthday dinner a memorable one, and Abigail was a sweet server.

Everything was perfect! From being greeted by Joe at the front, to enjoying a drink at the bar then being seated exactly at 7:45, the entire experience could not have been better. Caroline did a fantastic job taking care of our every need while we there. Cannot wait to go back!

We moved to Germantown just before Southern Social opened. We had no idea we would be living nearby to such a treasure! We have had the pleasure of dining there about a dozen times and have never been disappointed. If anything, our experiences just get better and better! We choose Southern Social for all our special occasions, as well as those times when we just want to indulge ourselves. It's a must for our out of town visitors who want to experience the finest in Southern hostility and fare. Brunch, dinner and social time at the bar are all a treat. So glad we are 'neighbors' of Southern Social!

Southern Social is a lovely up scale, yet relaxed dining experience. The food is always great - and the wine selection is good. My mother is recently widowed - this was our first family dinner to get her out after a long time of caring for someone else. It was perfect. Not too loud, but still up beat. The food is great, but approachable. We all felt it was a special night out, but not stuffy or uncomfortable. There are so many good dinner options that we all had a hard time narrowing down the selections - Even my son had a hard time deciding what to order. He was over the top pleased with the BBQ shrimp, petit fillet, and chocolate lava cake. Our table also had the halibut, shrimp and grits, pork chop and wild boar. Everyone was pleased with their selection.

We were specifically looking for an Italian wine to get us in the mood for our upcoming vacation. The wine menu was spot on with a great choice at a reasonable price. I also had the port wine flight for desert. How have I missed that before? Delicious!

A special thank you to our server, Whitney, who made the night fun and memorable. The service is just part of what makes Southern Social special.

The evening was just lovely.
