South City Kitchen Midtown Ratings and Reviews
This is an amazing restaurant- service was spot on! Our server Hali was great! The food was delicious- wife had the fried chicken- I had the pork chop. The chicken liver appetizer was very good. Biscuits and cornbread were very good. Will definitely go back.
Incredible southern comfort food, and fast! Our server was very friendly, appetizers, biscuits and cornbread were on the table within 10 mins of ordering, and the entrées within 20. Filling and perfectly cooked (delicious all around!). Reservations an absolute must - it was packed in there! We were on the covered patio, and the heat was on full-blast on a cool night, hence a slightly lower ambience rating - but staff corrected that immediately.
My friends and I like this restaurant. Interesting ambiance in a converted house in Midtown Atlanta. Food usually excellent (the shrimp and grits, for instance). We've ordered steak that was a bit tough. Can be noisy at peak hours. Great service and staff. We'll return.
Agree with most others, inside environment is more decent than outside.
Parking is a pain, $15 the closest, $10 in the behind parking lot, but $2/hour for all street parking if not on Sundays/holidays. Definitely recommend to walk one or two blocks to get a street parking.
Complimentary breads are amazing. I love the biscuits better, especially cuz it comes with yummy butter and butter apple sauce.
We came in a group of 4 for Sunday brunch at 1:15pm, it was packed already. Luckily, we made the reservation the day before. I had the crab cake hash, with was one of the best crab cakes ever, I'm not a crab cake person, but this one is good. My friend has the famous chicken & waffle, the chicken was very very crispy outside (not to much bread) and very muscular meat inside. One ordered the shrimp and grits, it was good too, but I won't recommend it if you come here for the first time.
Excellent. Ok, so everybody's ranting about their staple fried chicken. Yeah, it deserves it. It's awesome. I've been there several times, and never had a bad meal or bad service. These folk know how to take care of you. You will enjoy yourself, and go home stuffed.
This was our first time at this outstanding restaurant. The wine list was varied and comprehensive with choices for all budgets. There was an extensive list of cocktails and whiskies as well. Service was good. Our waiter was helpful and friendly. The crab cakes were the best we ever tasted. The main dishes of Corvino and Pan seared duck breast were delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant.
SCK is one of our top 3 picks when we are in Atlanta. My only criticism is that we were seated upstairs, in a corner that was absolutely freezing. Everyone at the table was uncomfortably cold. Because we were there at a particularly busy time, changing tables was not an option.
The food was really delicious from beginning to end. Highly recommend the fried chicken and papardelle. The banana pudding dessert was outstanding. The service was attentive and polite, most of all competent! We were a party of 8 and everyone enjoyed the food and being treated so well.
