The place is nice and so is the food, but the server seemed like she hated her job and after being there for about an hour and a half, both the waitress and the host came up to our table and told us we had to leave b/c "they have been needing the table for a while now" not even Chili's pulls something as rude at this, I expected better from what is supposed to be a more upscale place

I came here with work colleagues for a business dinner. Really enjoyed it. The food was very good, beautifully plated and a great contemporary interpretation of local cuisine. And our waiter was just superb. Thanks Soco for a great evening.

Food was great, everything we ordered tasted fresh and perfectly cooked. Wait staff was lacking, it wasn't busy and there seemed to be enough of them, ours just wasn't very attentive. Had to skip dessert because we had been there for an hour and a half and had to be somewhere else.

Wonderful meal - creative, foodie type southern cuisine. We enjoyed the tacos with fried chicken and biscuit tortillas, the snapper and it’s sauce were excellent and the Korean Fried Cauliflower was crisp without too much batter and had a nice spicy, mildly sweet sauce. All delicious!

We went for a post Valentine's dinner and overall our experience was good. The food tasted great! We had biscuits with an apple butter spread that was amazing and my wife had the pecan crusted fish and I had a porterhouse steak. It was delicious! It is a little pricey but it was a nice experience.

The menu has a wide variety and a unique contemporary twist on southern food. The presentation was great but we found the food quality and taste to be marginal. The location and service were good with a very nice outdoor dining area. Unfortunately it was not enough of a memorable experience to return.

Made a reservation for Valentines Day. Didn’t seem too booked and it was a 5:15 seating. Still got sat in the bar area at a high two top. Not enough room for the large plates. With a reservation I would expect to still be in the main dining area. It was pretty empty even as we were leaving. Food and service was excellent just poor hosting and seating choices.

Excellent food with a respectable variety of examples of southern cuisine raised to an even higher level and with artful presentations. Service provides careful, but not overbearing, attention to ensure you know they appreciate your presence and want you to have a very enjoyable time whether celebrating a special event or just stopping in for an evening meal, or just a drink and an appetizer. Atmosphere is modern but nice, with plentiful seating and adequate spacing between tables in the both the main dining room and in the covered outside patio. Will definitely be returning many times.

Went here to celebrate a birthday with some friends. We were sat immediately (with a reservation) and they accommodated an extra person in our group with no problem. Our waiter was kind and attentive—very good service.

We ordered the fish dip appetizer and it was very good. We got some wine for the table and a few people ordered cocktails and everyone enjoyed their drinks.

We ordered a variety of entrees and everyone was very pleased. I ordered the pecan-crusted snapper and it was wonderful. Someone else ordered the meatloaf and had a similar review. My fiancé ordered the hanger steak, and while it was delicious, he thought the portion size was too small to fill him up and too small for the price.

Lastly we got the chocolate cake with potato chips and it was honestly better than I expected it to be. It’s a small portion so I may recommend 2 if you’re sharing it amongst a group of people.

Overall it was a great experience. I’d definitely go back for a special occasion. It may be a bit too pricey for an everyday meal, but to be fair, we did order several courses and wine.
