Great Southern Food and Service

Visited for the first time, today. I had the fried chicken and hubby had the shrimp and grits. Great Southern food without the salt and grease. We will return.

With a group for brunch. Everything very good. Surprising renditions of southern classics (or just plain southern classics like chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits). Had a caesar salad with cubes of fried grits for croutons and pulled pork barbecue and cole slaw with an egg and barbecue hallandaise sauce. Wait staff excellent. In fact, this may be the... More

I always have enjoyed coming to South City Kitchen. Their food and service is great. Either for business or with friends you can count on a nice atmosphere.

Been there twice. Good service and seating. Great biscuits and cornbread.Service is good. Had fried chicken on the last visit and was good. Was not impressed with peach cobbler special though.

Visited twice in the past two weeks. Called 15 to 30 minutes ahead for each reservation. So walked right to my table when I arrived even with a party of 8 the second time. The fried chicken meal was awesome both times. We substituted the mash potatoes for Mac and cheese or lobster mac and cheese for an upcharge. Banana... More

Sat at the bar for a cocktail while waiting on a to go order. The service was prompt, friendly and attentive. I loved the atmosphere- It seems like a great place to go on a date or girl's night with friends. The food was pretty good- menu looked really interesting if you were going to dine in versus taking out.... More

Good service and great southern style cooking. Waffles and fried chicken is worth a try! Great bar and excellent service. Sunday brunches are excellent as well.

My wife and I live in Vinings and love coming here among a couple other restaurants and this is definitely in the top 3. The Gouda cheese appetizer is highly recommended as well as the shrimp and grits. Parking is not exactly the best, especially if you come at peak time.

I had the fried chicken. It was the best I've ever had, not greasy at all. The waiter was in training but I never got the feeling that he was. It felt like he had been working there for a while.

It was my friend's first visit and my 5th. We had the fried green tomatoes, which were good. My friend was very disappointed with her $36 filet (it was dry and overcooked). I had the Halibut Special for $32 and the fish was a little dry, too. And wayyyyyy too orangey. Last time I was here, the mussels were bad... More
