About the restaurant
Aptly named for its locale, Southern Social nestles up to the old Southern Railway’s historic Germantown Depot and sits adjacent to Southern Avenue.

Owners of downtown Memphis’ Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar have opened Southern Social. The top tier fine dining restaurant will reflect the high standards established at Flight.

The restaurant features a chef-inspired menu, offering fresh seafood and prime steaks. Southern Social brings exceptional specialty cocktails and Flight’s award-winning wine selections.

Southern Social on my birthday was an outstanding experience from start to finish. The special occasion treatment began with complimentary Champaigne and concluded with a complimentary Creme Brulé. Our server Heather was outstanding - anticipating our every need but never hovering. The petite filet was perfectly cooked and served with a Bordelais sauce. The fish was perfectly cooked. The crab topping was slightly dry but quickly replaced by our server without our asking. Outside dining was a bit loud from traffic passing by, but overall it was a lovely evening.

The shrimp potstickers were a great appetizer. I had the grilled tenderloin which was tender, delicious and cooked to a perfect medium rare. My wife enjoyed her scallops. Interesting sorbets, including a red bell pepper flavor. Overall outstanding.

About the restaurant
Where the water meets the sky, Coastal Fish Company sits on the edge of Hyde Lake in Shelby Farms Park creating a picturesque location for diners to enjoy.

Coastal Fish Company offers a unique fine-dining experience by having the freshest and best sourced seafood prepared in traditional styles and new twists. Want your favorite raw oysters ? Why not try them with one of our many savory sorbets. Care for a key lime pie to end your night on a sweet note? How about opting for the chocolate covered key lime pie to satisfy that chocolate craving. Along with all of the coastal fare, there are also ‘land’ options in both the appetizers and entrees that will satisfy any appetite.

Whether you sit outside in the cozy patio almost touching the lake, inside at the bar area full of energy, or in the dining room at a spacious and comfy booth, you are guaranteed to have excellent service, a wonderful meal, and a beautiful view.

About the restaurant
Due to Covid regulations and our assurance of social distancing, we have decided to incorporate, The Beauty Shop, our sister music club, Bar DKDC, our newest Back Dō Oasis Patio behind the Beauty Shop and our patio out front of the Beauty Shop.

In addition to the two outdoor igloos, we also now have multiple greenhouses outside to assist in social distancing and outdoor eating even during cold or rainy weather. These can be reserved via outdoor table bookings.

This is one way we can keep social distancing in place and still give all of you a great experience when you come back to see us.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you! We are doing everything we can to make sure your dining experience is comfortable and safe.

We came for my 22nd birthday and it was a great choice. We made a reservation but it was not too busy so we had essentially no wait for food or drinks. The ambiance is great and so picture worthy in there. We sat at a table but the couches and chairs looked just as comfortable. Our server was amazing she took very good care of us, overall we had no issues!
