We were very excited to return back to southern cross after our first experience for brunch there. We haven’t been back for about two months but finally got a chance. It was not busy like it was the first time. With that being said, we didn’t think into how the service would be. We sat down and our server was nice. But overall she was not really present or attentive with us. It took us almost 30 minutes to get our drinks. And remember it was not busy at all from what my friends and I were seeing. Then when our server took our order - she repeated back to us our order but was off by an item or two. So making us a little hesitant if she got it all. The food came - it was not as good as the first time. We were very disappointed. Also it took forever for my friends corn bread to come out. It came out after all of us finished our meals. The cornbread ended up being dry and just tasteless. Finishing with our server taking 15 minutes to give us our check. It was just not the best experience. I worked in the restaurant industry and this was just not a good experience that we were looking forward to. It was also my birthday and was disappointed by it.
Great service and the food was amazing!!! We will be sure to return.
As always a great experience. The staff is excellent, friendly and genuine. They go the extra mile to make sure everything is great.
Good good parking across the street
Good people- super nice staff
Would benefit from serious sprucing up and cleaning
Appears dirty - initial turnoff walking in the door- food was very good
Good live music playing
We went on a Sunday & service time was up to par. There were a couple of large gatherings but truly enjoyed the setting of the location. Was very worth it. Food was amazing.
Prior to this experience I've rated this restaurant with 5 stars. When asked if we could substitute our sides for different sides we were told yes, however we were not informed of the upcharge. Usually the music is very good and this particular night the band did not move the crowd. I was very disappointed especially since we brought out neighbors as guests.
Hot honey chicken was delicious. Server was great as well—pleasant and attentive.
Visited on a Tuesday evening in a party of 5. Have been looking forward to eating at SCK for some time, but left feeling like the reviews were overrated. Apps were good but unremarkable. The fried chicken was crispy but meat was sparse, although the sides (mashed potatoes worrisome for a full restaurant since it was relatively quiet that evening. Should also note that the server added a 20% tip to our bill without notifying us, which (in my experience) is unusual for a party of 5. Overall, a very 'blah' experience that likely doesn't bring us back.
Great neighborhood gem. Love the place... The live music, the food, the drinks are all excellent. That said be careful where you sit. The top floor with the live music is best, however the rearmost room, during the summer at least, blows the air conditioning so heavy it becomes uncomfortable fast. The AC blows so hard the curtains in the room are flying as if you are in a wind tunnel. If the owner could find a way to reduce the fan so it blows more gently the place would be perfect. Definitely go but just be wary of where you are seated.
I totally enjoyed my experience here! I initially was running late and was worried about my reservation. I called and the host told me to take my time and she would see me when I got there. That was a total relief! The waiter was amazing! Totally energetic, very helpful when we had questions about the menu, was on top of bringing the mimosas out when he saw our glasses were empty. The food was delicious as well as the presentation of the food. I will definitely be back!!!
Great experience! Our waitress was so nice and accommodating! She checked on us often and was very helpful with the menu. All the staff was very friendly! And such a great atmosphere! Love the live music! The food was, as always, delicious!
We really enjoyed the food and the outside dining. We would definitely go again. The corn bread is wonderful!
We went here on our way to the airport for my husband to deploy to Afghanistan. The owner was there and she picked up our bill to thank us for his service. We were beyond thankful. The food way amazing and the service was top notch. The cocktails were perfect and so refreshing. I plan on doing brunch there with my friends. I highly recommend Southern Cross Kitchen
I wanted the food to be better; based on the menu items, it promised to be a great meal experience since who doesn't love comfort/soul food, but overall it was just okay at best. I was disappointed since I am a lover of fried chicken and that was one of their specialties on the menu. Overall, the food was bland and could have used an extra sprinkling of salt at the end to help it along. The service was excellent, though, so want to mention that as a plus here since restaurant workers need all the help right now.
Great food and service, our favorite brunch spot in the area!
Service was fine. Food was a no. Fried chicken was dried and tasteless. Biscuit was dry like a cake in the fridge without cover for days. Grits was absolutely disgusting with macaroni cheese. Wife’s huevos rancheros was okay nonetheless. The cocktails - sangria was bend as tap water, and the mimosa was purely orange juice without alcohol. Restaurant was apparently ran by college students. Nothing against colleague students, though they can certainly use guidance from a person who is more experienced and knows where things to be done.
the service was great, the food was great as well. my sister & I plan on going back again to try other things on the menu.
Our first time there. We loved the cheese plate, craft beer and cocktails. The jambalaya was hot and good. The steak special was also tasty. Definitely want to return for brunch.
The vibe was good, the food was great and they had great mimosas. Would definitely visit again.
Second time there this time for dinner excellent food great atmosphere and staff
Great atmosphere with excellent service and delicious food.
Great food and great customer service. I will definitely be back. I have already recommended this restaurant to others!
Air conditioner wasn’t working and it was stifling inside. No apology, no offer to move us outside, no heads-up upon arrival or reservation. The waitress was sweet and sweaty, but manager should’ve taken some responsibility.
Great service by Cole!
A friend took me for My birthday and we sat upstairs outside which was terrific! We both had the Cobb salad which was great and our server Chelsea was attentive , sweet and lovely! I will be back!
Literally everything was good - food, drinks, service, parking, etc. can’t wait to go again!
The waitress brought the incorrect meal for my daughter and they made her wait 25 minutes for the correct plate. She admitted it was her fault and did not compensate us in any way. Everyone was finished eating by the time she received her meal.
Large party on the 2nd floor overwhelmed the staff, to the detriment of the four tables of diners in the 1st floor dining area. It took over one hour for our table to receive an appetizer (deviled eggs).
Really great little spot…. Food was great!
One of the finest restaurants I've been to in years. The fried chicken and waffles were fabulous. The beignets were out of this world. The upstairs, outdoor deck was great and the service was impeccable too. My party of 4 all loved their food too!
Great experience! We enjoyed the cocktails, food, and service. The portions were very generous. We'd never been to this particular restaurant, although we've visited other Conshy Girls outlets. We really enjoyed it and will happily return!
First time and an awesome experience.
First time there an quite impressed with the atmosphere. Our server was fantastic. Very accommodating, great personality and really cared about making sure everything was right. We really enjoyed ourself an the food was excellent.
The customer service was on point! Omg the food had me singing & dancing.
The vibe is very relaxed. Can easily go for a date or a girls night out. The food and drinks are great!
This place was definitely a intimate and cozzzzzzy place . It was dim so that really set the mood . We went at brunch time . My husband and I loved the food . If I would have knew how much food I was getting we could have shared it . Loved it !
Wanted to try this restaurant because I came across it online and to be honest, very disappointed. Food was mediocre and service was very unattentive. Made a reservation online for inside and was sat outside on the patio in 95 degree weather. My food was so hot i was sweating bullets and took forever to get a drink. Was hoping to be able to support this small biz in the future but I don’t think I’ll be back. Left with a headache to say the least.
