It was Mothers Day Brunch. The only option was a $35 mandatory buffet of lukewarm food with a mandatory 20% gratuity for a server that barely filled our water glasses and didn't replenish utensils, so my daughters had to use a knife to eat the dessert.

The heated food was NOT hot. I would've never gone if I had known that we could not order from a menu of any kind. What a waste of money and entirely frustrating. It was a shame as I've eaten there several times for brunch and always enjoyed it. On principle, I don't think I will return.

Saturday evening, mother's day weekend. Later heard that we didn't show which was not true. Hostess seemed clueless...not that busy. Service was slow at best, seemed distracted . Food was fine but nothing spectacular. Probably will give another try sometime. Local residents, enjoyed brunch there previously.

Wonderful food and outstanding service. Located in a small shopping center, Southerly has a large dinning room that we were surprised to see mostly empty at 7:45 on Friday night. However, the bar was packed, the drinks were strong, service impeccable and food delicious. Did I mention everything was plated beautifully, even with substitutions for some of the sides? Batter for fried calamari was excellent, benne tuna was prepared perfectly with high quality fish and the mac & cheese was the best I've had. Table-mates said short ribs and flounder were both very good. Was a little disappointed by the she crab soup and crab & fried green tomatoe stackers. Lots of crab, but it over powered the tomatoes and the soup seemed like it was missing something; maybe the sherry. As far as desert goes, we all loved the chocolate mousse, but if you think there is such a thing as too much chocolate you may want to try something else.

The Food was excellently prepared with great flavors. This is a very nice and upscale restaurant with a dress code.

This is my third visit and the food is still just ok. I want so badly to like this place more than I do, but sadly the food just doesn't stack up to what we've come to expect in Charleston. This time I had the fried green tomatoes with lump crab cake. It was fine. There was nothing to set this apart from all of the other same dishes in Charleston. It was pretty much unmemorable. It was garnished with a corn medley and the corn was not crisp at all (like canned corn, if you know what I mean) which would have added a nice texture to the dish. My friend had the Chorizo Quesadilla and she also said her meal was, "Meh".

We're spoiled here in Charleston. There are so many fabulous places to eat, that "Meh" just doesn't cut it. On the up note, I do like their Sunday morning music. That's a really nice touch.

New restaurant for me- quiet Saturday evening. Had the Ahi Tuna and Pimento cheese fritters as appetizers, Salmon, Vegetable Tower and the Swordfish as entries. All was delicious. Nice short wine list- nothing pretentious but tasty wines.
Will look forward to a return visit.

This place has the potential to be outstanding. The decor and outdoor setting are gorgeous. The food however was mediocre at best. I was so disappointed.

The chicken and waffles were delicious, chicken had a nice crust and chicken was cooked and not dried out. the waffles were light a fluffy with a sinful butter that had brown sugar and pieces of pecans in it (the added touch was the maple syrup was served warm). Tantalizing!

Sunday brunch on patio with musical entertainment is very enjoyable. Good menu choices reasonably priced. Requested patio but was seated inside. Friend requested no onions, yet dish arrived garnished with scallions and had to be remade. A couple of misses...but will return.

We had a great time last time when we sat on the patio. We came for my birthday. The server seemed to take extra long in getting us taken care of. He was polite but didn't seem to want to take care of our table for some reason. I did have a great experience the last time I was here.
