The service was excellent and our server made wonderful suggestions. The food was delicious! Several of the guests were from out of town and thoroughly enjoyed everything.

I am a loyal patron of Southern Social, guessing I have been in around 30 times.

I knew I was due for a bad experience at some point and had that on Thursday.

I’ve been a big fan of the redfish for years, but the new preparation was just not good. The hollandaise was subpar, and the fried tomato was bland, definitely not homemade, tasted like it was frozen. Frankly the dish just didn’t work. Just a suggestion but I would move back to the original preparation.

In terms of service I had to ask for drinks and then again for coffee afterwards. Guessing it was a new server, but Restaurant was not crowded so I was a little surprised at the service level.

This will definitely not affect me coming in, and I am still a big fan, maybe it was just an off night

The overall experience was a good one, I ordered the porkchop & it was ok, the brussel sprouts were a little dry. I will try something different next time.

The food is different and delicious. My favorite are the devil eggs which a friend had me sample and I have loved them ever since. The steak was so tender and cooked to perfection. My other guests had scallops and said they were the best and one guest had the redsnapper over crab cakes and said it was outstanding.

Everything from start to finish was perfect. Excellent service (thank you Olivia) and delicious food prepared perfectly. Southern Social used to be our place for special occasions. We've now decided that at least once a month or more, Southern Social will become the special occasion.
A very welcoming restaurant, thank you.

I would recommend you try Southern Social at least once and I promise you'll be back. When I say "they aim to please" this is not an understatement. My preferred waitress was Chandler but she's since left the company. However, Ironically I have Jack and the service is equally matched. I enjoyed it so that I went this past Saturday and Sunday and plan to return within the next week or so. Roasted Joyce Farm Chicken Breast, Tomahawk Pork Chop & The Seafood Pasta are my top 3 dishes.

I've been to a few restaurants in my days but the service, from start to finish is pretty awesome.

p.s. You need to make a reservation though

Had a great time. Having a reduced menu was disappointing on New Years Eve. Maybe, advertising this before you make the reservations would help.Service was outstanding as usual.

Excellent as always. The fried pimento cheese sandwich appetizer and the fried chicken is my usual go to. I also love the Tiny Bubbles flight. My husband enjoyed the scallops and my daughter always enjoys the filet. The Mac and cheese is a huge winner with us as well. We finished the evening with creme brûlée and it was delicious.
Thank you for always being a wonderful experience.

Love the food here. Was already told that we could only stay for an hour and a half; however, the staff started coming around and looking at us more as if to say please leave and we had not stayed our whole time.
