    The server was great and friendly. The staff was very helpful. The food was just okay. I don’t believe the price matched the quality, to be honest.

    Perfect restaurant for a special evening with girlfriends. Our smoked gouda and pita sticks appetizer was delicious. Each person's entree was a sizable portion and was equally delicious. We sat at a hightop in the bar area, so there was a lot of activity but still was enjoyable.

    Southern Social food and service is TOP NOTCH. I travel to Memphis somewhat regularly and this is one of the go-to restaurants in the East Memphis area and better than any I have tried downtown. Whatever you do, don't eat here so that I can get a table the next time I'm in town :D This is a part of a local restaurant empire and ALL of them are WAY beyond good.

    Southern Social is my favorite restaurant in the Memphis area. I consider it a chance for fine dining, not just an eating experience, and not a place I go for loud, raucous parties -- there are plenty of sports bars for that. Generally, the Southern Social wait staff is well-trained and able to execute a style that contributes to the overall experience. Loud, un-self-aware, patrons detract from all of these positive qualities. Maybe the answer it to put all the partyers in the Magnolia Room and close the door so they can sing "Happy Birthday", laugh like hyenas, and shrike at every single silly thing someone says.

    Everything about my first experience was excellent. From the time I stepped on the property, every person that I came across greeted me. I was seated as soon as I checked in with the host, and my waitress greeted me upon being seated. The food was nicely seasoned and exceptional. I would be coming back again and I highly recommend.

    Everything was fantastic from walking up to the door to walking out the door. Great attention to detail in all aspects of service. The appetizers, entrees (featuring large portions of poultry and game), and desserts all made a strong showing, along with the bourbon cocktails and even the coffee we had with dessert. The only thing I could criticize is that I would prefer a more spicy/seasoned fried chicken, but that is down to personal preference (maybe some hot sauce on the side?). Highly recommend! Wonderful experience.
