We dined in for our 5th wedding anniversary, and had a wonderful experience. The drinks were tasty and our food was delicious. My husband especially loved the trout.
A favorite for us to enjoy a Sunday brunch! Great food and atmosphere.
The food was outstanding. The hanger steak was excellent and the trout was fantastic! Oh, and the peach upside down cake was delicious! Our server, Jamal, was very friendly and attentive. The 20% service charge was a bit odd, but in these unique times, not completely surprising. Even so, the evening was wonderful and we’ll definitely return!
Our waiter Kevin was amazing. Helped us to select the best menu items. Highly recommend Caesar salad (can you say deep fried grits crouton!), crab soup, fried greens tomatoes, shrimp & grits, fried chicken and Mac & Cheese! Don't fill up too much though because the upside down peach pie and the pecan pie were not to be missed. Kevin even sent us out a peach sorbet which was a delightful surprise.
The added 20% service charge was a surprise. Understandable, but not welcome.
Also, drink menu needs to be corrected. Bourbon and Rye are not the same. Other than that, the usual delicious SCK-Vinings I've been too many times, and will return to.
Good place, parking was a bit hard since it shares with other business in the small location.
We really enjoyed our date night at south city kitchen. We will definitely visit again!
Very nice restaurant and area. The food was good and service was excellent. The manager was very good at his job. I was very happy and will visit again
Great please even better food.
We had a delicious dinner, the hanger steak was so good!
Food was delicious. Good quantity as well as quality. Only complaint is drink/wine orders took a really long time to get out. It was not very crowded. Overall never disappointed
I have been dining at South City Kitchen regularly since 2011 (Midtown and then eventually expanding to Smyrna and Buckhead). The food was pretty good, but the service is always sub par in the Smyrna location. Never get a timely coffee warmup, have to ask for the courtesy bread basket and the wait staff check-ins are minimal. This is my least favorite location by far, but it is literally only 2 miles from my house. Disappointed every time.
We eat here almost weekly. Always a good meal. The staff is very friendly.
The service and food were outstanding!
Everything from cocktail to appetizer to dinner to desert was delicious!!!
Service was amazing as usual and French Riviera drink is definitely going to be my go to drink from now on!
South City in Vinings a wonderful restaurant with good Southern high end fare. Quality of the food and ambiance is what we enjoy most. It’s a bit over priced. Sides and salads not coming with the meal really add up. Most seafood and steak choices are excellent. However on this night I went for New Orleans BBQ shrimp and it was more like an appetizer at an entree price. Wish the server would have mentioned that plus I had to peel each shrimp which is not what you want to do when you’re dressed up at a nice restaurant.
Great meal. We took a chance on the Chicken Livers and it was not a winner for us but the total meal and the Old Fashioned was fantastic. Our server, wish i had her name was also fantastic. No rush but super attentive. Great evening.
Great place with good food!
great service, spectacular food! highly recommend.
This restaurant never disapoints!
Our server was excellent
I apologise ahead of time because I don't remember my servers name. Harry I think it was. He was great. Gave us nice suggestions and was attentive through out our visit. The pork chop which he suggested was amazing. My partner ordered the crabcakes. The sweet potato puree was beautiful and went well with the delicious crabcakes. He also ordered the lamb. His set up looked better than mine so we switched. It was all amazing! We orders sides as well with cocktails and dessert. The entire visit was great.
The service was terrific and the food was incredible, we will definitely be back.
This location is easier to get to than the Midtown location. The food quality was the same. I have not been disappointed every time I have been. If I were to complain one group was loud at one point which was disturbing but they left. The food was cooked perfect, the cornbread muffins were amazing as usual. Great meal.
Girls brunch. Food was good. I had the biscuit with gravy. The ham was a little salty however I’m extremely sensitive to salt. I also had the fried egg not thinking about the runny yolk which I hate. Overall the dish was good. I usually get the crab cake which is awesome! I’ll stick to that.
Overall, a really great experience. I love that they are consistent in execution.
We enjoyed the Springer Mountain chicken and the Duck Leg Confit with Andouille sausage. Pineapple upside down for dessert. Very good meal we’ll be back.
Service was awesome from the time we entered the building and was greated by the host! Food was excellent as well. Drinks were perfect! I'll recommend to anyone!
Best basket of BISCUITS and CORNBREAD...mmmm! Be careful o else you won’t be able to eat your dinner! Just like grandmama used to make- and I mean your grandmama from down south honey!!!! Best, juiciest fried chicken evvvvvar!
Excellent service and food was very
We were quick to get seated. The biscuits and cornbread were out of this world. The food service was very fast. I had the fried chicken, and it was amazing.
Madison, the bartender is excellent, personable and informative about the unique items on their menu, plus some good beers on tap.
The consistency of the bread service: delicious, Southern cornbread and biscuits alone is worth dining here. Makes me nostalgic for my Mom’s home cooking.
The service was a bit slow. But I overlooked it because of the bread and collard greens.
I hadn't been to South City Kitchen in years and this was my first time going to the Vinings location. My family had never been before so I was excited for everyone to get a chance to try it! We were there to celebrate my mom and her husband's birthdays. Our server, Kevin(I believe) was great! He serviced our party of 9 with no issues. He provided great suggestions and had great conversation. Everyone loved their food and said that they would love to come back and try different dishes! We'll be back soon!
Excellent food, excellent service, reasonable wine prices.
If you're looking for a custom spin on southern fare, don't think twice. Always a good experience!
