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.

Southern Social has amazing food and exceptional service. The Redfish was very flavorful and the steak was melt in your mouth good. Danielle P. was a fabulous waitress. She went above and beyond to make our dining experience enjoyable.

I loved everything about Southern Social! From the minute we walked in, the service was great, the food was amazing, and our server was Taylor....and she was the best! I had the sea bass, and it was wonderful! I’d definitely recommend this to a friend, and can’t wait to come back!!

We ate at Southern Social on a Wednesday night and it was packed. We used the valet because of course the parking is terrible in this area of Germantown.
We had our reservation for three (3) weeks. This place stays booked. It is a very loud and boisterous restaurant. No place for quiet conversation.
We did dine in a quieter area. Our waiter was great, the food arrived hot and delicious. Very pricey.

My experience dining here was wonderful! I celebrated my birthday and I am so glad I chose to come to Southern. We started our night off with the oysters and they were phenomenal! My sea bass was cooked perfectly and the night ended with a delicious creme brûlée! Our server, Abigail, was just splendid. She provided extraordinary service and was very educated on the menu. She made our time with y’all even better! I will definitely be returning soon, and requesting Abigail!

Southern Social has yet to disappoint me or any guests of mine that have accompanied me. Impeccable service from the time you walk in the door, there is no better restaurant in Germantown that can compare to Southern Social!

It was our 48th wedding anniversary, and we could not have orchestrated a better evening ... all aspects were outstanding, and we were amazed that all the staff seemed to know it was our anniversary and made mention of it. We were blessed!

I had the crab cake, harvest salad and gumbo. I did not like any of my meal. I had been there 4 times before and had the crab cake and harvest salad and they were delicious. It was my first time having the gumbo. It was way too thick for my liking. My mom had the Aunt Thelma’s Chicken and my daughter had the Seafood Pasta and they both loved it! I chalked it up to maybe my taste buds were off. I will give them another try and dine there again.

My wife and I had my birthday dinner. It was absolutely amazing. The moment you walked in the door the staff greeted us kindly and made us feel like regulars. The food and beverages were outstanding. Our waitress, Ally, was a breathe of fresh air. She was funny, charming, and helpful with all our questions. Can’t wait to go back.

I’ve never had a bad experience here! Joe and his team go above and beyond! One of the many things I love is, they keep you hydrated!! You know how most restaurants when you pay the check they are done with you, and you’re trying to finish your wine but also need a little water? They keep it coming until you leave the building, and not just water, the entire customer service experience!! Also, If you’ve not tried the scallops over mushroom risotto you’re missing out!! Thank you for the best date night SS!!

The server was excellent. The food was amazing. The only reason I dropped a star is that I have Celiac Disease. Our server was aware and brought a Gluten Free menu to the table. I ordered strictly from the GF menu until dessert. I asked if the Creme Brûlée’s would be an option. Our server said she would check. After hearing yes, we ordered two spoons, one Creme Brûlée. The first one came with a cookie stuck into the middle of the dish. When I asked if the cookie was gluten free, the server immediately took it back to the kitchen and brought one sans cookie. It was delicious, but.... I almost didn’t make it home. My digestive tract determined that something was NOT gluten free.

Had friends in from Virginia Beach. The atmosphere, service, wine selection and cuisine was top notch. A bit pricy but you get what you pay for. Will definitely be back. Very enjoyable dinner.

Arrived 25 minutes early, but was seated in 10 anyway. In and out in 1 hour. Every employee was well trained to deliver outstanding service. I had scallops and my wife had shrimp and grits. Both were excellent. Blackberry pastry dessert was slightly over baked making it tough to cut with a fork. Presented my wife with a complimentary creme brulee for her birthday. Looking forward to our 2nd visit!

The food and service were, as always, extraordinary.

We were offered our choice of 2 seatings, one in a booth in the bar and the other at a table in the dining room. We chose the booth so understandably it was louder than the dining room.
