The food was wonderful! The person (manager with the blonde hair) that seated us sounded very passive aggressive about the closing time, although we were aware prior to walking in. Andy was our server and he was very nice and accommodating!

Overall experience did not measure up. Adding 20% tip automatically equalled a poor experience as service suffered. Consumers know this and our dinner was poor. Too noisy and food over cooked, is unacceptable in todays market.

My waiter Dorian was helpful with recommendations. She crab soup was good, bisque-like. Crab cake was excellent- thick, without a lot of fillers. And it might have been the best mac and cheese ever - creamy & gooey.

This was one of the best experiences that I have had going out. I was on a hot date and this was the perfect place. The food was wonderful. The service was superb. The drink 619 has become my favorite. It is Tequila based. Our server “Andy” was the best. My date and I had a 7pm reservation. It was a beautiful rainy night. We stayed there until it closed. Didn’t even want to leave this place. Very welcoming and we all need that during these times.

Our server was phenomenal. The night started off a tad rocky after running extremely late due to rain and accidents on the highway but they held my reservation and called to check in. We were seated immediately and had no issues. Great experience and food. We will definitely be back.

Food was mediocre at best. Virtually no seasoning, bland. Went for brunch. Waiter was helpful. A lot of unnecessary plates on top of plates. Weird. Tables outside had open slots and were not balanced. Ambience was quiet. Sat outside.

We are from out of town and gave this a try. No ambiance but the service was phenomenal, and the food was delicious. Started with Pork Belly which was good, fried Chicken Livers and the Fried Green Tomatoes which even my 6 year old loved and my husband thinks are the best he's ever had. He tries them at every restaurant that has them. I came for the Shrimp and Grits and was not disappointed, probably the best I've ever had, loads of shrimp, super creamy grits and just sublime. My son had the pork chop which was too smoke flavored for our tastes, my husband the boar which he liked, and my other son the fried chicken from the kids menu. That was a massive portion, plate filled with fries and 3 good sized, very tasty chicken strips. The server went over and above with the service, recommended a local beer and changing it out when I didn't like it. No reusing cutlery or plates for appetizers, social distancing practiced. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Every time I come to ATL I have to visit South City, the fried green tomatoes are to die for. I am never disappointed. I was there on a Friday so I wasn't able to get the peach preserves/jam; they only serve it on the weekend. It's definitely something I look forward to with the corn bread muffins and biscuits. Service is always amazing. The fried chicken and collard greens were spot on, no extra seasonings were needed. This time I stepped out of the box and got the brisket sandwich, OMG it literally melted in my mouth. I can't wait to come back.
