Great traditional southern fare

The menu is fairly standard, but the food and service are always excellent. The sides, fried chicken, and the fish they serve is always excellent. Not a lot of variety in menu choices, but always a good bet for a good meal.

Love the South City in Midtown Atlanta - ambiance, food, everything but the line to get in. Tried the Vinings location closer to home last year for mother's day brunch and it was just barely ok, but chalked it up to it being unusual bufet food and large crowds. So, tried again for birthday treat a couple of weeks ago,... More

I know this is a very well liked restaurant, but they are making a major mistake with one of their dishes and I don’t believe my complaint to our waitress fell on receptive ears. As part of their regular menu, South City kitchen offers Jambalaya. Per the menu, regularly they make this dish with mussels (besides chicken thighs, sausage, and... More

I stopped here for brunch on my way home from a weekend trip to GA. I saw reviews on here and wanted to try it. I was not disappointed at all! There was a decent sized crowd on the Sunday morning but I was seated within about 10 minutes. My waitress was wonderful and the chicken and waffles was the... More

Inviting atmosphrre, patient and attentive wait staff, EXCELLENT food a drink. Think Comfort Soul Food Fusion with a fine dining experience. Hosted customer dinner for an overall great experience. Sampling of menu items included Fried Chicken, Ribs, interesting appetizers to include Chicken livers, BarBQue, Gouda Fritters to die for. A fine finish with Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Bourbon sauce... More

I hosted my fiancee's 30th birthday brunch there. From the start of the planning, the staff at South City Kitchen Vinings were very accommodating. I had a large party reservation of about 20 guests and they seated all of us in a separate section so that we could laugh and talk as loudly as we liked without disturbing the other... More

If you are in the Vinings/Smyrna Georgia area this is one of the best places to eat/drink in the area. The staff is outstanding. The drinks are good and the food.. Wow! The best chicken and waffles I have ever eaten. This is one of my all time favorite places. It is my regular birthday and New Years Eve place... More

If you like southern/soul food, but you like fine dining too, then this place is for you. I'm usually not one that orders fried chicken out, but I've ordered it here several times. Good greens, good gouda mac 'n cheese. I highly recommend the gouda fritters as a appetizer!

Nothing really special including the service. Host was very friendly. My friend had the ribs and they were good. The jambalaya was too salty

Service was really great and I highly recommend this place for a first date. My date and I spent a couple of hours here and our waitress took really good care of us and we never felt rushed to leave. Try the Gouda Fritters, they were delicious!
