    The food was delicious and the service was great. The only problem was the parking. The only nearby parking was $20 even on Sunday. It made for a very expensive brunch that I won’t do again.

    The food here is always great. Service is great. I had the Shrimp & Grits for the first time and it was excellent. The noise level is very high, not the best place for a serious business lunch.

    South City kitchen has great food and energy. This location is loud at primetime but that’s do to the bustling nature of the restaurant. It’s a cool place to grab a meal, cocktail and catch-up with your friends or close colleagues.

    We had a show and were running a little behind with terrible weather/traffic. They sat us with a small grace period and took our order right away. We had time to sit and enjoy the wonderful meal before our show. Thanks so much for attending to our needs and providing us an excellent meal!

    The chicken and waffles is probably the best I have had in Atlanta so far. Waffle was made perfectly and light. While the taste of the chicken and syrup complemented it really well.

    Our server had a very poor attitude from the beginning. We felt rushed, and didn’t offer suggestions, and was very short and curt. My husband and his friend each ordered a sprite. We advised that the sprite didn’t taste good, maybe running low on syrup, and requested bottle water. She got an attitude about that request. We placed our order, and again, before we could finish ordering she was reaching for the menus from our hands. When our food got there, not once did she check in to see if anything additional was needed. We swiftly ate, and upon getting the check, she went to clear the table. While clearing the table, she requested that we hand her plates, also specifically stating “Oh, hand me those plates too.” Never in my entire 20 plus years of dining have I ever heard a server request that we hand them dinnerware. Poor experiences. Will only visit the Buckhead location.

    Very nice interior! The Caesar salad was the best dish! The brisket sandwich was terrible and so were the chips that came with it! I was there with my 1yr old.. this restaurant isn’t kid friendly.. I had my stroller out folded up out of the way of the door still yet I was asked if it could be stored in an closet outside of the restaurant. I complied. I also felt very rushed. Not the best experience. I don’t plan to go back.

    The food at South City is always great, and service excellent.. It is just too noisy for conversation, especially on the first level, above the patio, and directly behind the bar...
