    Very nice setting for 20th Anniversary dinner! We chose to sit outside on the porch, so the occasional train passing was expected. If you prefer more quiet seating, choose inside.

    We returned to celebrate my husband’s birthday after a wonderful and fun time last year. The server brought menus with incorrect information from our special birthday celebration in June for my niece and her husband at Coastal Fish? What the heck happened as I was very specific about my husband’s birthday. The error was quickly corrected thanks to your efficient staff. The quail eggs were delightful but the oysters were too crispy and unrecognizable. Our guest demolished his Tomahawk pork chop. My sea bass was light and favorable, just small in portion. The duck was eatable but chewy. The cup of gumbo was in a teeny size cup and the pork belly was a gooey mess. We fix pork belly on the grill and know flavor and texture when properly done. Overall, I was disappointed with the some of the food especially considering the cost.

    One of my best meals ever. Fried oysters with grits and bacon jam was a great and unusual appetizer. Stuffed quail over red beans and rice grits was an unusual entree and it was delicious.

    My husband liked the shrimp and sausage pasta but it only had a few pieces of shrimp and sausage in it. It was mainly just pasta. I had the fried chicken and it was kind of dry. The Mac and cheese was very good. The chopped salad was kind of bland.

    The dinner reservation was for my grandson’s Homecoming. It was for party of five and they told me how delicious the food were and what a great service they had. It was a huge success and I thank you for taking care of them. My grandson asked me to take him back for another dinner. We shall return for a grandma/grandson date very soon. Thank you again! ☺️😊

    For the caliber of restaurant that Southern Social is, I was highly surprised and disappointed in the following: I ordered an un-sweetened iced tea and requested Sweet-n-Low (the pink packet). After bringing the tea, the server informed me that they were out of Sweet-n-Low (SNL). I informed her that I only liked SNL with my tea so I would not have ordered it if she had informed me PRIOR to bringing it that they were out of SNL. So, for one, she should have informed me PRIOR to serving me that they did not have the sweetener I desired and offered an alternative drink. However, even more importantly, telling me the product is on back-order is laughable. A restaurant of their caliber should stop by at any grocery store prior to opening for service to purchase SNL while they await the shipment/arrival of their order from the vendor from whom they ordered it. To inform the customer that a common sweetener, found in every grocery store, is "on backorder" is unacceptable, again, for a fine dinning establishment such as Southern Social, especially given the cost of their food and beverages. Very tacky and unprofessional. I literally got up, walked across the street to the Germantown Commissary, gave the hostess $5 for a few packets of SNL, and returned to Southern Social to enjoy my now sweetened tea with my meal - something that my waitress - or the numerous employees standing around doing nothing - should have done (RAN across the street to purchase instead of telling me it's on backorder). That's the level of customer service that I associate with an establishment the caliber of Southern Social.

    We are from out of town and our son attends Rhodes College so when we come to visit we try to have a special meal together. This meal did not disappoint. The food was outstanding. Very rarely can we not choose a favorite dish-the dishes we had today-all equally amazing. From the deviled eggs and fried pimento cheese sandwiches to the fried chicken and bread pudding, every bite was delicious! We will be back.
