Contemporary Southern
The Southern Gentleman is a Southern-inspired gastropub in The Buckhead Village District. The concept celebrates every aspect of what it means to be from the South with a fresh, modern take on traditional dishes made with locally sourced ingredients. The bar program explores the artistry and history of classic Southern cocktails—everything from barrel-aged cocktails to bottled libations to adult beverages on tap, along with New World wines and craft beers and the “perfect” mint julep.

The gorgeous top floor space in Buckhead Atlanta was designed by New York’s Lacina Heitler, and features classic, Southern touches done in surprising, modern ways: seersucker window treatments, tufted camel leather booths, vintage plateware, white marble countertops, vaulted ceilings, herringbone floors, dramatic chandeliers, complete with an oversized portrait of Mark Twain painted by a commissioned local artist.

    We were looking for a nice place with southern cooking while we were in town. We discovered the Southern Gentleman, and the reviews were great. However, after our first bite, we knew that the reviewers were trying to keep this place a secret to themselves. From the appetizers to the entrees, every forkful was amazing. It is so good that we are returning today before leaving town.

    I made a reservation for 10 pm since that was what was available. The minute we sit down our waitress alerted us that the bar and kitchen closes in 15 minutes. The food was just ok, the service was great, and the ambiance was really nice. I’d probably only go back for drinks and the ambiance.

    The Southern gentleman was actually a really great spot. I spent my birthday there celebrating with just one other person and the food was fabulous. I had a sweet potato cornbread that was to die for and the buttermilk fried chicken was the chefs kiss. I would definitely return especially since they have deviled eggs on the menu. Our server Francisco was amazing and recommended several new favorites.

    While we enjoyed ourselves and the food was good, we almost did not come in. The girl that was working as the hostess was downright unpleasant and unfriendly. I am glad we came though, as we enjoyed the labor day brunch and our server was wonderful. I would really consider making a change up front, as it was a definite negative to an otherwise positive experience.

    Server was not attentive and took a very long time to take my order—-although restaurant was not super busy. When server finally took order, they approached the table and greeted me by saying “what’s up?” Overall food was ok. I ordered the chicken and skillet cake . Recommendation for chef to use less syrup. The cake was drowning in syrup.

    My husband and I visited here today to enjoy brunch. Our server, Michaela, welcomed us in and recognized our familiar faces (we come here at least every other month). Per usual, we enjoyed the seasonal mimosas, the hush puppies, the fried chicken and skillet cake, and the soft scrambled eggs. It was all delicious…no surprise. The ambiance on the patio is our speed and the weather was perfect to chat and not bake in the heat. We always appreciate the consistently good food and staff that are attentive and friendly. Michaela, we’ll see you again soon!

    It was my cousin birthday. They didn’t have the crispy chicken available. I was disappointed. I asked to validate my parking , the waiter stated less than 3 hours is free. It was 2h21 min and I had to pay. I wish she could just validate the parking. They had no lid for my to go water cup. I usually enjoy the restaurant. Not sure what happened that day.
