    The server, Kevin, was the best server we have had in a while! Unfortunately, the signature fried chicken was sightings was slightly overcooked. Everything else was great, but the chicken is the centerpiece.

    I can't decide what I love most...the delicious, dishes or the superb service staff. I tried the smoked trout dip which was phenomenal. South City Kitchen, Smyrna is one of my favorite brunch spots and I make the trek from the outside the perimeter on the southern side to enjoy the experience.

    I made a reservation for a book club meetup with friends. The food and drinks were very good, our server had an awesome personality and contributed to a great experience, and overall we had a wonderful time. It is definitely important to make a reservation, as I overhead the greeter tell a walkin that the wait was over an hour despite it being 15 minutes after the opening time. There was a line before the restaurant opened, likely mostly reservations, and I say that not to deter but to just let you know ahead of time. We sat on the covered patio, which isn't bad if there's a breeze but it did start to feel warmer as the outside temperature climbed. I will also say that the rush died down significantly after 1pm, so perhaps you'd had a good shot stopping by without a reservation if you go for a later brunch.

    South City Vinings is always consistent with anything I eat there. One of my favorites is the Pork Chop. I replace the potatoes with their excellent grits. MMM The cosmos are perfect as well.

    We arrived just as they were opening. Much earlier than planned, but it was great. No crowd. Great table. Server with no one to worry about except us. Because we still had a drive ahead of us, we decided to limit ourselves to sampling "First Flavors" so we could leave room for dessert. It was "tomato jam" season, with many dishes featuring heirloom tomatoes, so we had fried green tomatoes, blackened pork belly with tomato jam, and we split a Caesar salad. The pork belly was very tender and flavorful on a bed of a spinach and onions (a tiny salad), with a few fried pork skins on top. The slightly sour dressing on the salad was just right with the tomato jam. It was completely worth the effort to get a little salad, pork belly, and a crispy piece of pork skin and dip it all in tomato jam. Best new thing I've had in a while. The fried green tomatoes were tasty, but the tomatoes might have been too green./ We could not cut them easily, even with a knife. We added tomato jam from the pork to the accompanying tomato coulis (don't tell chef) for extra flavor. The Caesar salads were accented with fried okra spears - a neat touch. And just the right amount of dressing. These came with "slap your mama" biscuits and a peach preserve dressing that was so good we ordered some to take with us. We finished with Crème Fraiche Cheesecake drizzled with peaches, and also had a Banana Pudding Trifle. The banana pudding was light and delightful - "a party in a cup" as our server described. The cheesecake was delicious, but heavy for people about to spend two hours in a car. We were charmed, entertained, and expertly served by Kevin Massay. Kevin has a background as a catering cook and has worked at South City for many years, so he knew the menu, made great recommendations, and was attentive without hovering. The food and space were amazing and parking was easy at our early arrival time. Price wasn't bad for all we ate. And we'll ask for Kevin when we return.

    I was with a party of 5. Server took quite some time to actually come to our table to greet and introduce himself. When he eventually showed his face, he didn’t at least bring waters by for everyone. After another ten minutes he came and took drink orders. When we said we were ready to order, he “took” our orders snd 5 minutes later returned because he couldn’t remember what side dishes we’d requested. Instead of just writing out orders initially, he tried to memorize them and then scribble them on a napkin. He mixed up drink orders, and was a little condescending and impatient when we asked questions regarding the menu. Myself and another diner had the Mushroom Etouffee a vegetarian dish. It was over salted and overloaded with whole heirloom carrots. The carrots were more of the star than the mushrooms. Another diner had the catfish and it was good. Someone else had the steak and it was not cooked how she’d requested; she described it as rubbery. Someone else had the shrimp and grits which they enjoyed. I also had the Gouda fritters with honey drizzle. Way too rich and just not executed well in my opinion, and I love honey and Gouda and have had the combination of honey and cheese before, but this did not go over well with me. I also had the she crab soup and it was flavorful as well as the fried green tomatoes. My husband enjoyed a take home order of the trout with a side of collards that felt heavy with butter. I have dined at South City several times over the years for brunch and dinner, and this was sub par from service to food. This was my first time at this location, but I would return for brunch at the very least to see how it fares.

    The restaurant was very warm but overall everything was satisfactory until at the end of our meal when our server presented us with a business card and an explanation that he also sold time shares and would like to speak with us about it. I found this very inappropriate. We didn’t spend $300+ on a meal to be solicited with a time share.

    It used to be an upscale restaurant- the food is a disaster. It is definitely cooked by an untrained chef. Cold can tomatoes (relish!!?) plonked on top of pale beef slices - trying to stretch the food to save is clearly evident- passing by the kitchen- pre-cooked chicken stacked in a huge pile (to heat again?) Springer Mountain chicken cooked to a bland rubber. No coating. I insisted to pay my bill in full, tipped server generously- KFC would have been a better choice!

    Waiter: very unsociable, and seemed annoyed the entire time we were there. He was also still wearing a face covering, and acted like he couldn't hear a thing we were saying. Food: Appetizer was great. We ordered the pulled pork and scallion pancake. Our entrees, on the other hand, were average.. which stinks, since we are usually big fans of South City Kitchen. My pork chop was scorched, even though we asked for it to be cooked Medium (seemed like they cooked it twice), and my wife's fried chicken was sopping wet - if that even makes sense. For the price, we probably wont be coming back for a while, until they can get their staff in check.

    This outing was for Birthdays and Father's Day combined, we had a group of 10 and it was a very nice event. We had a table in a semi-private area and it was great because we had two small children in our group. The food was good, though the mine was very limited. The staff was very pleasant. We all had a very nice time.
