Although the service was extremely slow and took awhile to get our drinks, we understand that it was a holiday weekend so there were most likely staffing issues. The food however was amazing and will be the number one reason we come back again! We've been to Gypsy Blue many times and this is a welcome addition to our list.

Got together for a friend’s 40th birthday for brunch. Always love the atmosphere here. Was our friend’s first time and she wants to plan more brunches here because she loved it so much. Staff was pleasant and helpful.

Such a great time! Dinner was perfect and the night was topped off with a fun acoustic band. It made our special night out one for the books!

They were understaffed for the night (Mother's Day) and not handling it well.

We had high hopes after hearing good things from friends - but they must have been having an off day. Service was so incredibly slow (even the kids meal for a toddler came 90 minutes after we were seated) and the meals were disappointing. Appetizers were great and the drink selection is impressive.

Mothers Day disaster. Long story short, service was nonexistent. Appetizers, along with children’s meals, arrived almost an hour after ordering with no apologies. Additionally, had to flag down other staff for drink refills. That said, I did receive an apology when my kale salad was made with spring mix, as well as for my corn bread being frozen. The manager did step up by removing both items from the bill. Unfortunately, our Mothers Day dinner was already ruined at that point.

There for Mother’s Day brunch. Despite having a number of large parties they were very efficient and had plenty of staff on hand. Everyone was extremely friendly. Food was delicious.

The food was really bland. No salt. “Poached eggs” were hard in the middle. The biscuit on the eggs Benedict was clearly microwaved. Caramelized onions were crunchy and undercooked. Service was slow and had to find waitress to ask for iced tea refills. Worst, my fiancée had TWO water glasses with lipstick on them before getting a clean one.

I have been at Southern Cross several times and this may be my last visit. Happy Hour is great but brunch has been disappointing. The service was usually slow but this time was almost too rushed though the servers were pleasant. Half of our water glasses were dirty and 2 with lipstick marks. The special $3 Bloody Mary's we're okay but again they were only $3. Two of us had the Hangover Crusher. Taste was okay but was lukewarm at best. My son got the Shortrib Benny. The hollandaise sauce was cold and seemed to have been sitting on the eggs and short ribs for a while. It also was not hot. The grilled asparagus were a disgrace to have put on a plate. Just a few the width of a toothpick and almost burnt. Huevos Rancheros were okay but my hubby has had better elsewhere. The chicken and waffles seemed to be the best choice at the table. I don't usually write such an unfavorable review but truly the last couple of dining experiences have not been good. There are better restaurants to visit in the area right now.

I gave it one star because the information on the website was incorrect. My family and I had visited at 2:30pm on Saturday and when we got there brunch was the only thing available. The website states that brunch ends at 2 so we were expecting to eat lunch type entrees. Unfortunately if we wanted lunch items we had to wait until 3pm and that only had limited items available. Although the waitress we had was nice I did not care for the other workers as they saw me standing at the podium waiting to be seated. They continued with their conversation and drinking beverages. The young lady who waited on us had to come from the back where it appeared she she had been washing dishes. Some of my family members agreed to go back at a later time during the evening. I hope that trip will prove successful.

Waited an hour and 45 minutes for our entrees which were sandwhiches. A grilled cheese doesn’t take 1 hour and 45 minutes. Very disappointed. Have been there before but after this visit I highly doubt I will return.

We visited SCK for Easter Sunday brunch. Even though we were a bit early, our table was ready and waiting for us. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly and saw to our every need. The food was delish and we even made room to share a dessert.
This was my second trip to SCK and certainly not my last! I will highly recommend to everyone.

Parade Day in Conshohocken. Apparently restaurant was slammed, so despite a reservation we were stuffed upstairs. Hostess said it was the only table available. Then the bagpipes and drums surrounded us. Our waitress then offered us to move downstairs.
We’ve had plenty of great service and good at this location. Last night was a sham. My wine was warm, our server was slammed. He put our appetizer order in wrong, couldn’t get back to table for drinks or dinner order so we left. Two Saturday nights, two Conshy Girl locations. Two strikeouts. Skip this place.

The food is great and the atmosphere is lovely. But when you are still eating your starters and the entrees are dropped off getting cold should you hurrying to eat your food, that’s not ok. I’m not looking for fast food so I was disappointed in the speed of service which ranged from that to kind of slow. I would go again because maybe it was a one off but it was disappointing.

Jambalaya with seafood was flavorful, quite delicious! Pan Seared Catfish entree is NOT recommended. Fish was soggy, not seasoned. I pan sear when I cook at home and know the difference. Enjoyed our conversation & service with the bartender/server. This was our first dining experience. Unfortunately, left a bit disappointed.

I was looking forward to dining here because I had heard such wonderful things about the weekend brunch. Unfortunately, I did not have the same experience. Service was subpar at best. The food was barely lukewarm. I had ordered the short rib Benedict and the biscuits were burnt on the bottom and rock hard. I will not be returning.

Just came back from down South where I had some grits and other southern cuisine. Still in the mood, and wanting something in Conshohocken, Southern Cross fit the bill. I had the Chicken and Waffles (first time, really!) and it was delicious and big (had to take half home). My hubby had the Eggs Benedict with the short ribs; also a keeper. My son will be moving just a few blocks from there this spring---yay! (not for the move, but I get to eat at Southern Cross more often).

Absolutely fantastic experience - the place is cozy but has a lot of great energy. We went for brunch, and were seated immediately. Coffee was hot and plentiful, and although the food took a long time to come out, it was worth every bit of the wait. We collectively decided that the biscuits were the best either of us had ever had, and the other food was absolutely amazing. Definitely will be back!

This restaurant was definitely out of the box for us. We loved it! I've been there before with another owner so the décor was not so different. The food was FABULOUS! We had app's of Caesar Salad with cornbread croutons, soup and cheese steak rolls. All were delicious. For dinner we had jambalaya, chicken pot pie and Mac & Chz with bacon. ALL were just awesome! We each took half of our dinner home. We would have loved dessert but just could not fit it in!

Just a note about our Waiter, Willy! He was just so great! He was attentive, gave us ideas and was so kind. I never saw him stop working even setting up the other Server's station. What an asset he is!

We'll be back!

Great brunch choices at Southern Cross Kitchen. Many traditional dishes like shrimp & grits (with an egg since it was brunch), biscuits & gravy & other interesting twists on traditional southern fare. Large, hearty portions with great grits, biscuits and cornbread.
