We had a party of 7 for Mother’s Day brunch. It was a fixed menu for $39/pp. We had great service & most everyone loved their meal. It’s a bit noisy, so conversation was hard with the older family members in our party. But that was expected, as we’ve dined here before. What wasn’t expected was when our server brought our bill (which was $316) she explained that the “service charge” (which was $63.20/20%) “goes to the company because we aren’t getting tips right now. So if you want to tip me for my service cash on the table is preferred.” WHAT?! AND, the signature ticket had a 0 with a line through it preventing me from writing in an additional tip on our credit card. Again WHAT?! We were literally forced to lay down cash on the table to tip our server. Thankfully, some people had cash & we laid down another $35-$40. What happened to being cashless for safety? And why was everything about Mother’s Day explained except this “service charge”? Are servers paid more since they’re not receiving tips? Why aren’t they receiving tips? Is this a covid charge? And if so, for what exactly? The restaurant was packed & people were waiting. We were completely caught off guard & ended up paying over a $100 over our $316 bill! So beware! We will not go back!

My mom and I greatly enjoyed our delicious food and wonderful service as we celebrated Mother’s Day. Thank you South City Kitchen for the delightful experience! We enjoyed the Gouda Fritters, Fried Green Tomatoes, the Hoppin’ John, and the Egg White Frittata. Everything was so delicious!

On our first visit we were blown away by the food, service. The second visit the food wasn’t as great, maybe due to it being a late night and busy weekend. But service is always top notch.

While our server was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the menu, the food did not live up to his hype. I had pork chop ordered medium. It was not cooked in the middle and had no flavor. The side of “succotash” was oddly lacking any corn and tasted very bitter. My date had a Caesar salad with the trout added. She received two very small dry pieces of filet with skin still on that she had to scrap off to be able to eat. The cheese appeared to be out of a can and dressing unremarkable. The dessert was okay...banana pudding but nothing special and for $9 very skimpy serving in a small coupe glass.
Will probably not return. Too bad as it sounded like it should be so much more

I normally dine at the bar. Today I went on a date at a table. Our server was very nice, but slow for 6pm. Long wait starting out for drinks (martinis). We don't eat red meat so we had the crab cake (always a hit), fried chicken (pretty good) and the BBQ shrimp (incredibly messy but tasty). Our server suggested the dirty rice which I did not like at all, it wasn't what I was expecting flavor wise. The shrimp had good flavor BUT, it is not a practical entree for this type of restaurant (should be shell off but tail on). The shell was on which she did tell me, but the shrimp was overcooked so we (yes we, he had to help me) fought to remove the shells creating a huge mess, honestly I wish I had a bib and the bread severed with it was way too hard to eat.. Great amount of shrimp for the price though I won't order it again.

Quite disappointed that the 20% gratuity which is automatically charged does not go to the server who served you...In fact it was explained by our server that they do not receive any or extremely little of the 20% gratuity. Also Fifth Resturant Group and the servers are in notations with this matter. I read the details of 20% gratuity upcharge prior to booking my reservation and thought it was acceptable due to Covid precautions, but this does not seem fair to employees who pay supposedly comes from the 20% gratuity; and is misleading to the customers. My family and I will not be back nor visit any restaurants in this group until this is changed. Very dishonest of you South City Kitchen!

We always have a great time. This is a regular neighborhood spot for us. The only thing missing was the fact that the two menu items I wanted for my meal off of the two course preset menu were sold out by the time we got to our 5:45pm reservation. Every other imaginable impact point (from greet at the door, menu explanation, food delivery, departure, and everything in between) were exceptionally executed per usual.

our server Kevin was super helpful and engaging. I was worried that he was just upselling, but he was enthusiastic about all the food, answered all our questions, and never pushed - just made great recommendations.
Speed of service was just right and all our food was beautiful, fresh and tasty. unique combos. super tender pork chop. watermelon/tom salad unusual and lovely. I had the rice/quinoa bowl with perfectly cooked salmon. great flavors and lots of surprises hiding inside.
will return.

I always have a great experience at South City Kitchen Vinings! We were able to sit outside, and the weather was perfect! The outside area is covered, shaded, and quaint. At one point, I asked them to pull down the shade a little bit because the sun was beaming down on my neck, and they gladly did so! Food was great as well. We also had a great server named Kat that was very kind to us. It was our wedding anniversary, so she made sure we had a great time. I would highly recommend South City Kitchen. Oh and their cornbread and biscuits are one of a kind! I always eat waaaay too many lol.

I have eaten here several times over the past and it never disappoints. Food and service was good. Restaurant adds 20% to each check and according to the wait staff the 20% goes to the restaurant to cover Covid costs and none goes to wait staff. If you want to tip your waiter, it needs to be cash on top of the 20%.
