The best memories are always at Southern Social. I love this place. We were originally seated at a corner table in the bar and the place was slammed and way too noisy, so with their usual desire to please they found a way to move us to the main dining room, after which everything was perfect. Food, service, ambience, all added up to a great evening with my sister and nephews.

Service and food were exceptional! Our server was also kind enough to give us a second free dessert after the first took a while to come out.

This was our visit visit to Southern Social. We made reservations to celebrate my husbands birthday. From the moment we walked in until the time we left - the entire experience lived up to the hype. I totally understand why it is so hard to get a reservation. Our server was Abby and she was amazing! The food was unbelievable. I want to come back and try everything! They made his birthday very special and we will definitely be back.

This was an amazing place for the celebration of our 32nd anniversary. What could be better than being welcomed with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries? The food was delicious and the service was perfect. It is definitely the place to go for any special occasion.

The service was outstanding and so was our server and the food. There is one thing that stood out at me that didn’t particularly sit well with me and that is the lack of people of color working in the restaurant. In this day and time with so much outward racism, as an African American patronizing a restaurant, it does bother me to see absolutely no one of color working there. I’m not sure if that’s intentional, but thought I’d mention it.

Everything was good. Ribeye steak was a little under cooked to my taste, so be sure to confirm your desires with the staff as you order. Asparagus was little stringy.

Great staff and selections, will definitely go again.

I took my wife there for her birthday. We had Blue Point oysters for an appetizer, which were excellent. My wife had the fried chicken dinner, which she loved. I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was cooked perfectly. It was very buttery and flaky. We will definitely be back!

We were running a few mins late for our reservation and called to let them know. The hostess let us know we were fine and drive safe! Our server, Chris was amazing with our food allergies. He was very helpful and take amazing care of us and our friends. We have dined there a few times before and had some great friends there with us. It was there first time and based on their feedback, it will not be there last!

Southern Social was recommended by a local friend while I was visiting in Olive Branch. Upon arriving, we were quickly greeted by several valet staff and escorted through the restaurant to our table. As we passed through the restaurant, which has numerous separate rooms, we were greeted and welcomed by smiling, courteous staff. It was the most impressive greeting I have ever experienced at a restaurant.
Our waiter was excellent, offering suggestions and being very attentive to our needs. The food was very good, but not quite as special as the atmosphere commanded. The wine list is extensive and had some good wines at reasonable prices. We finished the evening sharing a Bread Pudding with Ghirardelli Chocolate, Hot Salted Caramel Sauce & Vanilla Ice Cream. Delicious. Although the food may not be the best I've ever had, it was sufficiently good that combined with the superior service and ambiance I would highly recommend Souther Social to anyone looking for a great dining experience.

All components of the dining experience as always was superior the unexpected is that it continues at that same high level. Ally went above and beyond in taking care of us Saturday evening. This was the 1st visit for one in our group. I always love asking what did you think and seeing thier reaction and comments through the entire evening. That is way Southern Social is my favorite place and always my 1st recommendation.

As always, a great meal. The entire staff here is awesome! When you have the combination of quality food and service that Southern Social has it's hard to find flaws. The pork chop is one the best dishes in Memphis. Our group of 4 had the crawfish beignet, fried pimento and cheese for apps. Pork chops, filet and wild boar for entrees. And a few of the house cocktails. Everything cooked perfectly. It makes a normal night out for dinner feel special.
