My sister’s Birthday Brunch. Our waitress Amy was phenomenal! We will always request her. Service with a smile and that warm family feeling of being appreciated. My senior mom was doted on by Amy and every waitstaff she came in contact with was very cheery and helpful.
Food was amazing and very southern. Our waiter was great, and food was delivered quickly for such a busy night. Only complaint I have was the noise levels were really up there. Do be fair, it was St Patrick’s Day. Definitely will go back. Make reservations. We made reservations and were seated immediately upon walking in, and they were supper busy. That’s how reservations are supposed to work.
I love this place! The fried chicken is excellent. Never had a bad meal here.
Excellent food, service, and ambiance. It was my first time there and I thoroughly enjoyed everything. A great take on my southern classics. I would recommend them adding a mac and cheese option to round out the menu.
This is an Atlanta staple. Great value for the location. Fifth Group restaurants always deliver a nice dining experience. Versatile spot, can be a good option for almost any occasion. Offers a Southern twist on a variety of different kinds of plates.
This was my boyfriends and I's first time in Atlanta, Georgia. We loved everything about this place. Decor, overall vibe of being in a house. Just simply everything! We were running late and they still accommodated us. Our waitress was kind, attentive and overall hysterical, we were laughing throughout out meal. The power unfortunately went out and they went ABOVE and beyond to make sure we were okay. The owner even came over to check in on us, we were beyond grateful and stunned. We enjoyed dining with you guys and are now recommending South City to a few friends who will be in the area this weekend.
Thank you so much for your comfort South City! Many referrals from out of state coming your way :)
Employees were Excellent!!! Very welcoming and nice. Food tasted good but the portion sizes were off. Wish there was more food on the plate.
Very crowded. Too many tables in small spaces. Not good at all for a business lunch.
Great food and wonderful service. What else needs to be said.
The chicken livers were amazing! And the service was excellent.
The food was incredible and our server was a delightful character that kept us entertained (and also kept our water glasses full and everything else you could desire from a great server). You could tell that the place was well-loved by visitors and locals alike and the atmosphere was fun and relaxed. The ONLY drawback was that we were seated upstairs which was above the kitchen and it was incredibly hot (and I'm FROM the south). Since we had reservations, I wish we could have had cooler seating.
Wait staff veru inattentive.
Don't try the Oyster app! Small and over cooked.
For out of town people that are looking for upscale southern cuisine, this is it!
Really nice food in a great setting. Lovely building and decor. Food was good but very salty. Had to send soup back b/c it was so salty. Everyone at our table said food was salty. Crab cakes excellent.
Otherwise, fresh, good quality.
Great updated southern food. Salads, sandwiches and the fried chicken were yummy!
The food and the service was excellent. I took my Mother for her birthday and she absolutely loved the place. We will be going back.
Food is excellent. The green fried tomatoes are superb. Only issue is the space is a little cramped.
We were a party of 12. Had to change to six. Then had to change to eight. They couldn’t have been nicer and so accommodating! Our server was excellent and very informative about the menu. She steered us in great suggestions. Everyone was delighted with the food , drink and ambiance. Supertime😃
The service was wonderful, the food was delicious .
We were very disappointed with the food and service at the restaurant. We had not been in a while due to issues from a previous visit but decided to give it another try and we will not go again. Not worth the cost.
Always enjoy South City Kitchen!! Ana was our server + she is EXCEPTIONAL!! Had a great meal.
Came up from Tampa and want some good old southern food. A cousin that lives in the Atlanta area recommended this place and it was very good. From the appetizer to the fried chicken.
Food was great. My wife and I began with the crab cake. We both had the shrimp and grits which were amazing. We had the collards and Spaghetti squash, turnip, and carrot mix as sides. These sides definitely left more to be desired. The pecan pie slab was one of the best I have ever had--only to be rivaled by Bones. Great evening.
It was great!!! Great cocktails, great fried chicken, great fun!
Celebrated our wedding anniversary with a nice lunch. Food was amazing and had a great time. What made our visit special was the service we received from Pablo, our waiter. He was great and had the best attitude and really interacted with us. Will definitely be back for another visit!
Food was very good. I like the corn muffins. Service was great.
Food was amazing as always. My family and I had a wonderful time celebrating my recent nuptials. Our server James was THE best and very, very helpful!!!
After all these years South City Kitchen is still a pleasure. These people know about hospitality and excellent food.
Enjoyed the food and atmosphere at the old building where the restaurant resides. The fried chicken and shrimp and grits were very good as well as the chicken liver appetizer.
I made a reservation and even though I was 20 minutes early, I was seated immediately. Our waitress Amy was very good. She checked on us often and also had good suggestions. The manager was very personable and helpful with the waitstaff Good was very good and we were stuffed.
SCK in Midtown is a family friendly environment with amazing cuisine for all types of consumers from carnivores to vegetarians. The servers tag team and delivery exceptional service with a smile and finesse. It is truly a great environment for having great conversations with even better food.
Delicious fried chicken and fried green tomatoes. Overall great restaurant. But very noisy that's why not perfect score
Disappointed, had a reservation and a group of 6 without a reservation was seated before us. Ended seating at the bar. The food was good and bartender was excellent.
So many people rave about the fried chicken at South City Kitchen so naturally I was really looking forward to it. They use a quality chicken (Springer Mountain) but only serve the airline breast. It was very disappointing; flavorless and the crust was falling off the meat. The generous serving of french fries was also lack luster and soggy.
It's a noisy place and even though we were on the covered patio, having a conversation was difficult.
Our waitress was terrific, but if the food isn't good, there's not much else to recommend the place.
The she crab soup and golden beet salad was outstanding. I had the corvine dish, one of their newer ones, and it was very good. Next time I'll try one of the house specialties.
We allowed plenty of time to have a glass of wine, salad & entree. We were there at 5:30 and the restaurant filled up fast by 6. The meal was exceptional and then we headed to Symphony Hall for the concert. Love this place.
The food was wonderful and the service very good. My wife had the Georgia lettuces with chicken and I had the pulled pork sandwich. Delivery of the food was a bit slow which the manager noticed. He offered another round of drinks or a dessert which we declined. He insisted we take a piece of chocolate pie with us. We enjoyed it later in the afternoon and it was scrumptious!
$40 mimosa pitcher was a bit small but the food was great and the service was outstanding. Overall wonderful experience.
We ordered the shrimp and grits and the duck for main and the crab appetizer
The shrimp and grits were decent, but by no means excellent- hop alley in Alpharetta has much better shrimp and grits, great flavor
The crab cake was decent, but it seemed it was cooked at a low temperature and didn’t have any sort of caramelized/crust.
It should have been cooked hotter.
Finally the duck main, boring, the rice tasted metallic, as if it had been left in an aluminum pan for too long and was flavorless. The duck was cooked way too cool, it was more grey colored on the outside than grilled. Duck should be grilled super hot, the oil must be on the verge of smoking. Whoever cooked that was clueless about duck and just wanted to go home.
South city has long been a favorite but it seems to have gone down
Two of us, obviously on a date we’re seated right next to a very loud table that had been drinking, which is fine, but they could have put as somewhere else .
Nice food and service. The biscuit was amazing.
