Ordered chicken and mashed potatoes. Everyone at the table had it. No one was happy with the food. It lacked good seasoning and chicken was to over cooked. I was not happy with my food at all. Sorry will not be back.

We arrived early for our Sunday Brunch reservation, but were seated right away. The wait staff was attentive without being pushy and provided great menu guidance to our guests, who were first-timers at SCK. Our table settled on two orders of the Brisket Benedict, an SCK Breakfast, and a Pimento Cheese appetizer. All three were deliciously prepared. If you haven't tried the Brisket Benedict before, don't hesitate to do so on your next visit. Despite the usual busy Sunday Brunch crowd, our meal was unhurried and our visit with friends totally pleasant.

James was amazing. We were a party of 6 and he was quite attentive, and an amazing server!

The service was very good. We stayed a long time chatting and catching up. The she crab soup is very delicious. We had the shrimp and grits. No little shrimp in this dish! The bowl of shrimp and grits is quite large. We couldn’t finish it. It was very tasty so hated to let our bowl go. We were stuffed.

This is our first time here and we all were mind-blown by the flavors of the food and our waiter, Ryan, who was very understanding and courteous. I have got nothing but outstanding things to say about the food and service. We were seated outside and even after telling one of the waiters to turn down the heat, we felt it was a tad hot throughout our dinner. Other than that, we enjoyed the quiet ambience. We’ll be coming back to taste the other amazing dishes on the menu.

South City never disappoints. Had the brisket sandwich and it was delish!

SCK is a must visit when in Atlanta. The fried chicken is the best! Tender and well seasoned. Get it with waffles or collards and mashed potatoes. Both are the perfect pairing. Sunday brunch here with family and friends makes everyone happy with all of the delicious comfort food offerings. The old house setting is like being at home. Wait staff is always friendly.

Service was slow, and the hostess with the short blonde hair was the rudest person I interacted with during my weekend in Atlanta. The food was excellent, particularly the collard greens, fried chicken, and corn chowder. The space is bright and airy, but can get rather noisy. They were very careful about my nut allergy, and our waitress was very sweet. Definitely worth making a reservation on Sundays, as we overheard the hostess telling someone the wait was 2+ hours.

Very loud. We requested a quieter table and were denied. Food was fantastic, as always, but our server was very curt and not friendly.

It's a nice little spot where the food is ALWAYS amazing!! I’ve never had anything I did not love! The environment is quaint and the service is great! You will have to pay a penny or two for parking but it’s so worth it! It’s our go to spot when we want to eat good and have some close convo together. Try it, you will love it!

Yummy yummy restaurant. Never knew how good chicken and waffles was until I ate here. I am a new fan! The cornbread that was awesome, biscuits tender and the crab test was good. As well as crab benedict!

Always one of my first stops visiting Atlanta is South City Kitchen for the fried chicken.

Staying around the corner at the Four Seasons made this restaurant a handy choice. We have been to the South City Kitchen in Vinings several times and liked it alot. I understand this Midtown location is the original restaurant in the group. It sure looked like it. While the Vinings store is new and modern, this Midtown location has some of the feel of a hole in the wall and cozy.

My wife and I are somewhat handicapped and this restaurant is NOT handicap friendly. In fact I really don't see how the place meets the city and federal handicap requirements! You have to go up a number of steps to the front door and the restrooms are upstairs! The worst offense was when we asked where my wife could go to the bathroom using her knee scooter. The only answer was that South City has an understanding with the restaurant two doors down for handicapped clients to use their restroom. What?

The food was good and much like our Vinings experience. Fried Chicken is great as are the other menu items.

Special night date night pre-symphony. Service was FANTASTIC, worked to get us seated, served and out on time. Food was excellent, ambiance great. Our new favorite mid-town dinner spot.

This is my second visit to South City Kitchen; my first to the Midtown location. The cute interior was packed and noisy, so the hostess seated me on a covered patio. After a delicious starter of breaded roasted oysters and Southern biscuit and corn bread, I had a perfectly done pork chop. Service was excellent.

Excellent experience at Brunch - our server Sydney was outstanding, as was all of the staff. The food was absolutely amazing from the delicious appetizers, including the best She Crab Soup you'll ever taste to the wonderful breakfast items and their signature grits! Great, Great, Great!
