Arrived 15 minutes before reservation. Staff was great with drink orders prior to seating. Table was ready on time and in the proper location (outside area). Jamal was very helpful on what to order and never made us wait for refills or extra orders. Great job Jamal and South City Kitchen

We celebrated our anniversary at SouthCity Kitchen. The food was great, as usual. Our server surprised us with a delicious mini dessert for free in honor of our anniversary. They are really taking COVID procedures seriously. We have only gone to a few restaurants during the pandemic and this is the safest we have felt.

Menu not well planned. Why would you offer a child mac n cheese and options that include fries or mashed potatoes. That is too many complex carbs and you should know BETTER! Had we not spoke up, the option of fruit instead would have not been mentioned. Nor did the server bring the ice cream which was included in that high price.. for a CHILD! COME ON!
A new mimosa recipe is greatly needed. We would have never invested in a carafe of GRAPEFRUIT juice had we known.. are you using cheap champagne (?) bc we could not taste any liquor.😒
For $25 your salmon patties need to be larger OR serve 2-3 on the plate. We came for BRUNCH NOT TAPAS.
Server however was pleasantly accommodating and that was appreciated.
Summarily, this place will not be on our regular round of brunch places and I would not Highly recommend it.

I celebrated my friend's birthday by taking her to dinner here. I made a reservation, but when we arrived we waited about 20 minutes for a table. The manager offered us a free glass of wine, which was delicious so it made the wait very comfortable. The service was great, the food was amazing and our waiter was awesome. This was such a great dining experience all around. I have asked my husband to make reservations for he and I soon. I am looking forward to a date night here!

The management staff was pretty accommodating to our last minute requests for an additional seat and they were nice about the complaints we had about the food. Chicken was bleeding a bit (undercooked by the bone) management's initial comments were its just the connective tissue as to say its no big deal but ummmmm NEVER is chicken supposed to bleed!! I dont care what kind of tissue it is...BUT they replaced the meal so I'll give them that and didnt charge for it. Next and worst of all, one of the dishes brought over had a hair in the food...That was really bad a half inch black hair that could have come from any of us because it didnt match the hair type...smh..ughhh!!!

So Im torn because I LOVE their Chicken and Waffles and mimosas BUT my love affair with that dish cannot eclipse the shortcomings of the food and the issues we had on this visit.

I'll give them another shot for redemption, but it will be the last chance for them....

The chicken was burnt in taste and cooked in overused oil, the cabbage had more potatoes than anything else, and the lemonade was tart.

My party of three was completely underwhelmed by the food and the ratings failed to deliver to expectation.

The service was halfway decent but not sure if it was worthy of the 20% COVID up-charge.

It was raining cats and dogs and the outdoor seating accommodation was extremely humid and we were unable to hear the music. We asked the server if we could be moved to the empty dining room instead and was told no after he asked his Manager or host.

Thus, the ambience gave off sweaty garage vibes with mildew smell.
