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.

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.

First visit to Southern Cross. We went for Sunday brunch to celebrate my son's birthday.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We really liked the decor. Our group had mixed opinions on the food. My food was very salty and not very good. My little grandson's pancake was tough and dried out. The 2 people that got the Benedict's - Crab and Short Rib both enjoyed their selection. The menu sounded better than it tasted!

This place has a good vibe, but after waiting over 45 minutes to be seated, and another 35 minutes for our food to come, I was fed up. The food was OK but the potatoes were cold. I would have a hard time recommending this place

Went for Sunday brunch, place was very busy when we arrived and waiter clearly seemed overwhelmed. Had a reservation. Took a while to get drinks and our food ordered. After waiting over half an hour, our waiter explained that there was a large party upstairs that slowed the kitchen down. Ultimately waited over an hour for our food, during which time no one attempted to make our wait more pleasant--no offer of a complimentary drink or appetizer, no visit from manager. When the food came it was mostly good ( chicken and waffles, cheddar grits), though the biscuits were cold and dry. Prices are reasonable and serving sizes are generous, but probably won't go back because of the long wait time and lack of attempt from management to make the wait a little less annoying.

First time at Southern Cross. Lovely restaurant, and a pleasant ambiance (except for the conflicting noises from the tv and the house music). The “Cross Burger” was messy to eat but the flavors were on point! The brisket could have been a little more tender but still very tasty. Our server (whose name I forget) was delightful. She was bubbly, well informed, and seemed genuinely interested in our experience. We are looking forward to returning and tasting our way through the rest of the amazing menu!

I recommended this restaurant to friends for a birthday breakfast... It was too crowded, loud and disorganized...but it was the service that was awful! Our waiter was rude, abrupt, slow... we waited 45 minutes for an omelette & 2 orders of french toast which were almost fair. Our waiter asked us if the food was worth waiting for.... haha!!! We really wanted to say Nope!!! He reached across my friend to collect her used paper trash before we were finished. I really felt like he was pushing us out.
I had been to Southern Cross twice before and was pleased but I was embarrassed by the treatment we received and the whole experience.

Had a 1pm reservation on a Sunday. We went there specifically for a certain item, and then find out that they were doing brunch until 2pm. So we could not get what we went there for. Server was ok but not super pleasant. It definitely wasn’t as good as the last time I was there. Overall disappointed.

Went for Conshohocken Restaurant Week 2017. Had a 3-course meal that consisted of chicken & pork soup with southern-style dumplings; beef short rib with cheesy grits and asparagus; and a fried waffle with gingerbread ice cream. The meal got better as it went along.

The soup was rather uninspired and lacked depth, although I don't really know what I was expecting. It was hearty, but basically nothing more than described - some meat and dumplings in salty broth.

The beef was better - very tender as you'd expect from short rib, and no complaints here. What's not to like on that plate?

The dessert was decadent and wonderful. The fried waffle was delicious and the ice cream flavor a nice surprise. If anything, the gingerbread was a little strong, but good nonetheless.

Overall, I was not blown away, but left satisfied from a very decent meal. Service was also good throughout.

This was my first time here though I had heard of it from friends and others that had dined here. The restaurant is much larger than you would expect. There is a nice seating area downstairs, and a separate large bar area. The upstairs is huge with a porch for outside dining with an ambiance that really does make you feel like you are in the South, as well as a large indoor dining space. The whole restaurant has a great warm, cozy vibe and the decor is perfect. You really must try it. Appetizers are sized just right, if you are sharing with more than one person, get two. The meal portions are large and filling.

Love Southern Cross! Super delicious southern comfort food, lots of creative takes on classic dishes. Great beer selection, good relaxed vibes - perfect for a happy hour or dinner after work. Excellent value as well. You won't spend a lot, and you will definitely leave full.

Having lived in Atlanta previously we were intrigued when we first heard of Southern Cross. We were not disappointed. The Fried Green Tomatoes and Fried Pickles both were amazing. Waitress was incredibly kind and attentive. We plan on making this a regular restaurant when we're in the area.

What a great evening. We had guests from Italy, who were anxious to try American Southern food. . The meat/cheese board was a great starter for the table, with candied peaches, nuts, breads for this vegetarian. Guests had the catfish, fried chicken, and jambalaya and everything was excellent. We will be back soon.

Weather was nice so we requested the back deck. It was cool with a very light breeze. Drinks were good and of a good size. The appetizer was the pork belly and it was delicious. The three of us shared and it was just right for three. Our main courses were delivered promptly and they were large and wonderful. Just what you would expect from a Southern Kitchen. Our server was friendly and there just when we needed her. We will be back!
