This was some of the best food I have had in a very long time. I am a huge "foodie" and try to take in as many new places as I can when traveling, and this place did not disappoint. In fact, it was so good, I would make it one of the primary reasons that I come back to visit ATL. Of course along with great food, they have an awesome staff that is very friendly and attentive. The restaurant is beautiful and you truly feel like you are dining in a southern kitchen with a bunch of friends. A+++

The food was outstanding. This was the best meal I had from any restaurant hands down. The steak my husband ordered was cooked to perfection. It was well seasoned and juicy. The chicken and collard greens i ordered was southern cooking elevated beyond belief. I highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back soon!!!

Coming here has become a tradition for my wife and me. We are always greeted promptly with friendly service. The waiters and waitresses are attentive without being over invasive and the food always meets our expectations. They really did a wonderful job accommodating their Valentines crowd considering COVID guidelines.

Perfect service. 2 friendly servers worked in tandem to make sure our meal was great. The chicken and waffles were a perfect recommendation. Great coffee. Couldn’t have left happier.

The team at SCK was doing everything reasonable to operate a safe covid-mindful environment. Zero complaints.

We love SCK in Vinings. We were doing a staycation so we made a reservation for the midtown location. They are not the same. They didn’t have the Strawberry Basil Lemonade. They didn’t have the catfish. I ordered the chicken which was salty and there was so much liquid from the greens that my meal looked like a soup. Even our waiter was less attentive and seemed rushed. It really was a lack luster experience. We didn’t bother getting dessert & it’s the first time we’ve ever spent under $100 at SCK. I don’t recommend this location. We’ll stick to Vinings from now on.

I have been for dinner and I enjoyed it but their brunch was absolutely delicious. I got the crab cake with a side of grits and everything was well prepared and hot. I love that all workers had on masks and kept them on throughout the entire time I was being served. Service was excellent and the ambience was very sleek. Definitely going again!

It’s $15 to park, a %20 service fee “in lieu of gratuity” which I accepted because I thought it was a tip and insuring the hardworking servers get paid, only to find out it’s NOT. A gratuity, so we still tipped %20 (so that’s %40 plus $15 to park) and they TAXED THE SEVICE FEE. so you pay %20 more to the restaurant to eat there plus %10 on that as tax, which I have never heard of because you don’t pay tax on gratuity ever, plus gratuity if you’re not a jerk and want the server to get paid, plays parking. I get it’s a pandemic and y’all doing your best but $200 for fried green tomatoes and a fried chick salad is a racket. And don’t say they get hourly because I asked a few people and they told me what it was and it’s barely above minimum wage. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Never eating here again. Do better.
