A unique restaurant in a unique setting. We ended up in the wine cellar because the restaurant was full but we loved how unique and quiet it was. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations and we enjoyed the flights of food concept!

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.

Nothing could have made this experience better. The food,the service, the atmosphere. Everything was top tier. I enjoyed Strawberry lemon drops. The fried chicken with sweet potato casserole. I had a piece of my friends Tomahawk pork chop. I had a taste of another friends peach cobbler and I ordered the bread pudding. We all enjoyed everything!! And we had the best sever to ever exist. If you dine here I hope you have the pleasure of having Alec as your server!! He was absolutely amazing!

I called to confirm and move us from off the porch to the dining room. I shared that it was my birthday. I was shocked to understand why I was not asked about decoration on my table. Maybe I missed something.

It was an awesome night out with my wife. Jared was our server. My wife felt special on her birthday. The entrees were cooked to perfection. The liquor drinks were made to perfection. The special night was enhanced by Jared. He made us feel as if we were the only ones attended to. Her birthday was enhanced by a birthday card from the entire restaurant, a birthday sampling, and just an overall feeling of being special. Thank you all.

About the restaurant
The Folk’s Folly story began in 1977 with unconventional origins, as the best stories often do.

Native son Humphrey Folk, Jr. was a prominent and shrewd developer, whose hard work carried him all over the country, cultivating his sincere appreciation of food and fine wine.

Undaunted by a complete lack of restaurant or culinary experience, he decided to convert a quaint and intimate house into a small eatery. His peers offered little encouragement, so he added the word “folly” to his own name, and Memphis’ Original Prime Steak House was born.

With only a gentleman's handshake to signify agreement, Humphrey Folk welcomed famed Memphis restaurateur Thomas Boggs as managing partner of Folk's Folly in 2003.

This partnership built the bridge to the next generation and Folk's Folly Prime Steak House remains a family affair.

Lisa & I had a fabulous dinner in this very cute town of Wilson, AR. This restaurant was recommended to me from a few people on my Open Table App. I’m so glad Lisa & I took there advice because the menu changes with the seasons. I had their Crop Duster cocktail with asparagus salad 🥗 for starters. Lisa had the strewberry salsa smoked salmon & I had the braised short ribs with mashed potatoes and green peas.For dessert homemade butter milk pie & I had there piña colada pie and they do not cheat you the servings of their desserts.

Food was great. Ambience was great. Our waitress was serving a large table in addition to several other tables. She was over-worked and did not really respond quickly with service to our table. Dessert was unusually slow (for which the restaurant covered the cost). All in all, a good dinner night, but not great for the cost.

Appetizer of shrimp wrapped in bacon wasn’t the best but our main dishes were delightful. Service was beyond amazing. Would recommend!
