Contemporary Southern
The Southern Gentleman is a Southern-inspired gastropub in The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. 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.

My husband and I selected Southern Gentleman for a celebratory dinner in honor of our 18th anniversary! The service and food was impeccable! The staff went beyond their call of duty to make this occasion special by giving us preferential seating! We definitely plan on returning in the near future!!!

Food was fantastic, if it was available. We were disappointed in the size of serving for the cost of the main plates. The biscuit that came with the gravy and egg couldn’t have been more than a 2 x 2 in size. Additionally, they were out of a lot of different types of alcohol and cocktails that we had requested. The food that was available was good. The music was a bit overwhelmingly loud. My husband got the chicken with pancake which was by far the best dish!

Enjoyed my going away dinner with friends at Southern Gentleman. From beginning to end the staff was attentive and ensured the experience was great.
The food was amazing as well. We enjoyed the catfish bites, bacon, shrimp and grits, fried chicken, and the burger. We were all fully satisfied with the food. And the drinks omg is all I can say. Thank you for a great dining experience.

recently relocated back to Atlanta. A dear friend researched brunch restaurants, and selected the Southern Gentleman. I'm so glad she did because they have a returning customer. ;-)
The service and atmosphere was mature and great!!
