Southern Cross Kitchen
The food was good and so was the service. They had a live musician playing and was very loud and hard to have a conversation with our group. I wish we would have known before being seated, as we would have moved to another location. We weren't aware that there was live music.
Rude staff, mediocre food
while I loved my food, our poor waitress was new, and perhaps needed more training before being put on the floor. it was loud, very loud. Reservation was for 11am, we left at 1230pm, so it was a bit slow due to folks being out for flu. I'd come back, but wouldn't book for another family meeting as I did; as I drove from DC to meet my sib/mom for breakfast/lunch, and really enjoyed my meal; so was happy. But service was lacking due to her being new. if in a rush, don't book a reservation.
Went to brunch recently with many out of town family guests. The restaurant was very accommodating to our group of 8. Excellent brunch menu with alot of variety. Fun affordable happy hour during brunch.
Hostess and staff very attentive, wanting everyone to enjoy themselves. We did!. Will go back. Great brunch.
Very unique place - not too many places above the Mason-Dixon Line where you will get true southern cooking like SCK!
Fantastic place for brunch on the weekends. Really cute ambiance and the food is to die for !!!
Good food and very good service
The only substantial drawback to my meal there was that there wasn't quite enough food for the price. But everything else was amazing. I had trouble figuring out which fantastic thing to choose, and I'm usually pretty picky.
Wonderful food and service. Parking in the area is terrible.
Just no. It started out when we sat down and a song from Alice and Chains was blaring. I don’t need to hear songs from the 90s playing loudly while I’m trying to have a nice date with my husband. The decor looked like Shabby Chic trying too hard. The food was substandard. I ordered the tuna tacos. They were cold and none of the flavors meshed. My husband ordered the jambalaya. It was basically shredded chicken in a red sauce with some rice. Our server was eager to please at first, but then abandoned us halfway through the meal. We had about three different servers after that. Someone else came and brought us a dessert menu. My husband and I decided to split the carrot cake and we ordered coffee. The coffee came rather quickly, and that was the only good thing about the meal. It would have been nice to have the coffee with the dessert. I finally had to flag someone down to find out what happened to our cake order. By the time the cake arrived I was so excited to eat it, given the disappointing meal I had. Unfortunately, I continued to be disappointed. The cake was cold and dry. There was some fresh whip cream on the side that was runny and also cold. Seemed like it was probably sitting for a while. I could not wait to leave. We had to flag down the waiter for the check. Will not be returning.
Low quality service and high quality food.
The cocktails were very good. The loaded tater tots were worth the trip alone. I had the special surf and turf and the filet was cooked to perfection and the crab cake was mostly crab and so good. Mt friend had the fish tacos and was not as happy with her meal. Our waitress was very nice and attentive without being a bother.
Ate here for the first time and it was terrific! We ordered the monkey bread which I HIGHLY recommend. Their biscuits are yum and the monkey bread is made with baby biscuits. I ordered sides to make my meal. Having a biscuit was a bad choice bc of the monkey bread so I recommend one or the other. The eggs were farm fresh and the amount of potatoes was too much even for me. Perfectly salted. Coffee was also high quality. My friend got the chicken and waffles and said it was in her top three best ever versions. I ordered the jalapeño cornbread to go and it was almost flavorless which was disappointing. I can’t wait to go back and bring new friends!
Everything was great
Thought the food was just ok...very salty which leads you to believe they are spicing up average food.
Valentines Day date night.
Biscuits need to taste like someone's grandma is tied to the stove. These were overworked and tough. Take it from a real southerner, who was seeking a little comfort of southern home-cooking. The coffee was incredibly weak and barely warm. The service, though friendly, was slow.
Stopped in with my kids on the way home from a day trip in Philadelphia. Not necessarily a family dining experience but staff didn’t bat an eyelash when I brought my kids in there. Food was great and everybody enjoyed their entrées. Service was good, but we were upstairs in the corner so didn’t get the most attention.
Every time we go the food is amazing and a few times we have had T as our secvice and she is awesome !! 10/10 would recommend
The food, service and atmosphere were amazing. I will go back.
Kitchen got backed up and we waited 45 min for apps then entrees came right on top of them. Manager apologized and took the apps off of the bill.
Went for brunch on Saturday with 6 friends. Made a reservation online, they seated me right away and as others started struggling in the waiter made sure to continue to check in on us to see if we needed drinks.
The monkey bred-OMG!!!! Amazing. We ordered a variety of entries and everything came out as ordered, hot and in a reasonable amount of time.
i will defiantly be going back!
Disappointing tuna ‘special’ with what looked like had been a frozen tuna steak plain with pre made grill marks and a side of teriyaki that was a watery salty concoction with a side of uninspiring mash potatoes (that I asked to be replaced but was served anyway). Nacho appetizer had almost no chips and the service was fairly slow.
We had an awesome waitress who was fantastic at customer service and really extended southern hospitality to my wife and I.
Excellent! Definitely make a reservation for brunch. I did and atill had to wait. But definitely worth the wait :)
Brisket was very tough and just mediocre. Mac and cheese was good
The food was very good and the service was attentive, friendly, and relaxed. The fried chicken and jambalaya were prepared well and tasted great. Desserts were good, but nothing extraordinary. Will go back again (and again) because the food was worth it and the service made it a pleasant experience.
We had an awesome experience at the restaurant. The food and service was excellent. I would definitely return for another visit.
Unfortunately our waitress didn’t seem to know the menu at all. We had several questions and she didn’t know the answers. The food service was extremely slow. We ordered monkey bread as an appetizer. It was the last thing to come out. Even tho they gave it to us for free it was still burnt. I ordered the bananas foster. The sauce was burn as well. The best part of the meal was the biscuits. They were amazing!!
Was disappointed in lack of gluten free options - the menu only has about 3 GF options and weren't able to make anything (pancakes, french toast) gluten free by swapping ingredients.
Good live music - though it was a bit loud which made conversation mildly difficult.
What a gem! The chicken and waffles were a savory delight. The staff was friendly, helpful and prompt. I look forward to a revisit for their lunch and dinner cuisine. You won't be disappointed .
Delicious meal was just too cold in the restaurant
Our trip to Southern Cross Kitchen was great! We both had the short rib ravioli which was pretty good. Our server was new, but still did a fantastic job. Would recommend to friends.
Food and service is always great!
This place is awesome. It is a "conshy girls" restaurant. Very cute decor and amazing food! I always love coming here!!
Food and service were both very good. Great acoustic live music. Good selection of dishes.
Good southern food. We had the fried green tomato tower which was very good. Fried chicken is fine, although I prefer more of a southern style flour or batter. The brisket wasnt particularly tender. It would’ve been great to have some complementary biscuits served with dinner
Service was horrible. The food was not great. We were there two years ago and it was 100% better. I will not return not recommend SC to anyone.
Food was good. Service was friendly. We heard good things and wanted to give it a try. I would recommend. My only constructive criticism would be to use a little more seasoning in the food. Just some salt and pepper. Overall, very nice experience.
Came for lunch. Deviled eggs were good. Chicken sandwiches were meh. Have been for brunch a few times - better menu and better food.
