We went to South City Kitchen right before the pandemic hit and were completely blown away. So of course, we were excited to come try it again. They didn’t disappoint at all. Everyone was so accommodating and pleasant from the hostess at the door to our lovely waitress Jess. And of course the food was just as great as we remembered.

I had the shrimp and grits which was very good. The shrimps were big and I appreciated that the waiter told me about the ham they put in it. You have the option to have it removed. My friend had the chicken and waffles. The chicken breast was well seasoned and not dry.

This has been by far the worst experience that my friends and I have ever had visiting South City Kitchen - Vinings. Everything was off. From the hostess, to the waitress who was non responsive and rushed onus whenever she did take our orders. I could go on about the experience but the fact that none of us tipped speaks volumes. We got the manager involved to help smooth things over but the evening was a bust.

Great fresh watermelon salad. Went with fried chicken. Did not disappoint. Great crunch while moist. Succotash was all fresh veggies. Fried okra very good. Desserts were disappointing. Fresh peach was in syrup and there were 4 dime size pieces. Banana pudding served in champagne glass, what! Will certainly return.

It was challenging deciding on entrees because the offerings are all so tempting! Our server was attentive and made helpful suggestions, we enjoyed saying hello to our favorite server and met the new chef who also answered some of our menu questions. Overall a nice evening. Definitely returning soon.

Fabulous restaurant for modern southern food. Brunch doesn’t start until 11 and doors are not unlocked until 11, so keep that in mind if you schedule an 11am reservation. Server did not seem to understand that a latte is not just a regular coffee with cream. Otherwise, food was outstanding and the server was pleasant and helpful.

We really enjoyed our meal at South City Kitchen. It was nice having familiar foods presented in new and different ways. The biscuits are heavenly. The succotash was flavorful and light. Our waiter Kevin was outstanding. He had the whole patio to himself and he made sure we had everything we needed. We are definitely going back to try the Sunday brunch. Also looking forward to having the catfish again.

We took our beautiful neighbor to celebrate her very significant birthday last night. What a fabulous celebratory dinner we were served! She had the pulled pork and a side of grits, I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the always perfectly fried chicken. We left full with a happy birthday memory.

Probably due to COVID, they put up partitions between booth seats and it really has helped cut down the sometimes overwhelming noise. I hope they keep them up. It makes a very cozy atmosphere! Five stars!

Jessica was our server and she was fantastic. Her menu recommendations were on point and the food itself was absolutely delicious. Was concerned about ordering the fried chicken since it was a breast, but sooo juicy and delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I received wait service from Kevin who was the waiter during my last visit. His exemplary customer service and knowledge of the food and drink items was refreshing-as usual. Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed with the chicken and waffles. I've previously enjoyed delectable dishes, so I was a little disappointed this time. Nevertheless, South City Kitchen Vinings is one of my favorite restaurants in metro Atlanta.

I have dined here for years and had great service but the attitude me and my guest received from the hostess on Sunday was very immature and childest. We were seated at a 2 person booth which was very uncomfortable and requested to be moved to a table. We were told there were no tables available that they were fully booked which was not true. When we finally talked to the Manager he was just as rude and unconcerned as she was but did move us to the patio reluctantly. The food was very good. The waiter we had was great and very nice and friendly and we appreciated him for treating us like paying customers. The restaurant never filled up and there were plenty of tables available the entire morning. For the way we were treated on Sunday we will not be returning to the Vinings location.

The server was fantastic! She was professional, attentive, and ensured we always had what we needed with our meal.

We were surprised how few people were there when we got there and once the restaurant began to fill up it still felt safe and enjoyable. They had great music playing in the background and the selections were great for a 4th of July weekend. All the staff wore masks and everything was cleaned. 5 stars for that alone!

The food and drinks were spot on! We both enjoyed the fried chicken with greens along with some of the popular appetizers. We were so stuffed we had no room for dessert. We had a great time there and will be back soon! Thanks to the entire staff for providing us with a safe and enjoyable time.

SCC Vinings has always been our favorite restaurant, especially when celebrating special occasions. Our experience last night was very poor from the service to the food. The steaks were cooked medium rare. They were ordered medium well. They were taken back for more cooking, and put back on the same plates that had blood drippings from the undercooked steaks. The steaks were an extremely tough cut of meat. Our waiter had a very large party seated right next to us shortly after our arrival. After that, he completely ignored us, even though he walked by us countless times. The Manager was apologetic, and tried to make it right, but we declined the comp because we did order the food. He was going to comp a dessert, but we were never asked by our waiter if we wanted one. The Manager did give us a gift card for dessert, but we will NEVER come back. 😞

The hostess who greeted us at the front was top notch, pleasant and fun. Our Waitress/Server appeared as if she did not want to be there. You could almost see her frown under her mask. Her communication skills were lacking. She took my husband's appetizer order, left the table without even asking for mine. The only time we saw a hint of a smile was when we were finished and it was time to pay. South City's food is always delicious and my spicy marg was amazing. Great restaurant.
