    Came from out of state and enjoyed our meals. I had trout, husband had shrimp and grits, nephew had the pork chop all were good. We ordered pork belly and the crab cakes for appetizers but got spoon bread instead of crab cakes, was good but not what we ordered. Loved the coconut cream pie dessert but I was the only one able to take a spoonful because we were so full! Would recommend to others.

    The food and service were great. The seating in the porch/patio wasn’t up to standards. The chairs were too short for the table, making it uncomfortable to eat. In addition, it was extremely noisy. The place was full, but we practically had to should to hear each other. I hope you’ll consider taking steps to make eating in the patio a little more comfortable. We will be back!

    Check in was smooth and server Olivia was warm and welcoming. None of our party of three had ever dined here and Olivia provided a nice review of the menu. We started with fried green tomatoes and had fried chicken salad, fried chicken sandwich and beef brisket sandwich entrees. All meals were absolutely delicious. Service was excellent. Parking across street was sketchy and cost $15 for 2 hours.

    Food was delicious and in cute little house. I had the beef cheeks and they were outstanding. But the best dish of the meal was the chicken livers appetizer. So good.

    The hostess was very kind and welcoming. Our server was great — not overbearing but present as needed. The food was delicious — all of it. I’m looking for a regular brunch place, and this may be it.

    The trout was burnt ant the cocktail just no good. The shrimp and grits had too much gravy. I have eaten there many times even had my rehearsal dinner there several years ago. The icing on the cake was the cheesecake was taken off the menu and nothing else sounded good. 0ur server Andrew was amazing and on top of things or it would have been a terrible evening. In fact all of the staff we dealt with were amazing.

    I have been a customer of South City Kitchen for many years, and unfortunately this time was not good. I will say that the server was great, this is all about the food. First I ordered a glass of Cabernet, and honestly I couldn't drink it. Our server (I wish I remembered his name) took care of me and replaced the wine for another and made sure I liked it before they poured a full glass. That happens from time to time and they handled it nicely. Here is where the issues started - we both started with a pear salad. It was dressed with so much dressing it was inedible. It was so tart, neither of us could have more than a couple bites. Yes I know, I should have said something, but I just did about the wine and I didn't want to be "that guy", not to mention that we wouldn't have time to remake since we were headed to the Fox for a show. Next my wife had the trout and I had the fried chicken. My fried chicken was cold along with the the potatoes and collard greens. It was nothing special. I have had it in the past and thought it was really great, just something was off last night. My wife had the same feelings about the trout, which our server highly recommended for a fish dish. We really enjoy the restaurant and are hoping it was just an off night, but if we experience it again like last night we will not be back.

    Really nice brunch overall. Food and service were excellent. However the location next door The Veranda …. was closed … out of business and dirty. The condition of that building was a very NEGATIVE first impression.
