My wife and I have fined at South City Kitchen Smyrna three times and each time is better than the last. Great food, great service.

We came for a late Valentine's day with our daughter (age 9). We have been coming to South City for years and always enjoy our meals. The wife had the Short Rib, my daughter had the Hangar Steak and I had the Duck. All meals were delicious. I was a little disappointed at the size of the duck breast for the price. I know it is not a huge piece of meat but it was smaller than expected. The kids menu is needing some work for kids that actually enjoy food but we order off of the adult menu for her a lot anyway so it is something we are used to. Our waiter was excellent! The disappointment was dessert. The Banana Pudding is not good and used to be some of the best. The Pineapple Upside Down Cake needs work. Thankfully we don't go there for dessert but it would be nice to have desserts that make statements. These were underwhelming.

The atmosphere was relaxed and inviting and our group was able to engage And have conversation without straining to hear each other. The service was excellent and food outstanding.....shrimp and grits had just enough spice....delicious!

Excellent choice for Valentine’s evening meal. It is so nice to go to a restaurant and be treated so nice by the staff. Food was delicious and we will be going back again with friends very soon. Perfect date night restaurant. Excellent value for amount of food served.

Solid food with a southern heritage in an upscale setting. Finding better fried chicken anywhere in Atlanta would be a challenge. On this visit I tried something new: the Nashville Hot Fried Catfish. Excellent dish. The service was also excellent as were the cocktails.

Our server, Kevin was one of the best servers I have had the pleasure in quite some time. He was very knowledgeable of every dish on the menu and his recommendations for our entire party was spot on.

Came for brunch on my wife’s birthday. Overall food was pretty good. My daughter and I had the chicken and waffles, and they were good. Son had the kid’s chicken tenders and fries, which were good. My wife had the salmon & quinoa salad, but it really less of a salad and more salmon resting on top of a couple pieces of kale. So that was a little disappointing. Wrapped up brunch with dessert, and my wife had the carrot cake. Then to end brunch, my server overcharged me by charging me for the other tables brunch. So don’t know if they got off with a discounted meal.

I heard very positive things about South City Kitchen. I really hate that our experience wasn’t quite as positive (especially since it was our first time there and for my wife’s birthday) as what we heard from others.
