We loved it!

We had lunch here and loved it. The decor was a worn but comfortable look (to march the name). And the food was excellent, especially the cajun fried osters. We had the seafood risotto and a granny apple salad and a cobb wrap which we enjoyed. We will be back to try out more of the menu

Ate dinner here with my wife. Went early as they do not take reservations. Seated promptly at 6:15. Had to order 3 bottles of wine before there was one they actually had. The good news is they sold it to me for the price of the one they did not have. They have a good menu and the food is... More

My wife and I went to dinner at Southern Roots and were very satisfied with the dining experience. The food was really good and the atmosphere was great for our date night. This restaurant does not accept reservations and it is popular so be prepared to grab a drink at the bar and enjoy. We will be back again, it's... More

I am a huge fan of Southern Roots and their delicious food. Think traditional Southern food with a twist using fresh, local ingredients. The sandwiches, shrimp and grits, vegetables/sides, stuffed chicken and outstanding desserts are just a few of the reasons we dine here as often as we can. The restaurant is small and loud, so be prepared! Wait times... More

What a fun night we had here last night...my husband had the filet, spinach and garlic potatoes and I had the shrimp and grits...all was delicious (however, there were way too few shrimp in my entree - I think only 4 - and I was spooning around looking for more...nada!). The atmosphere is not elegant, but it is great fun... More

Have been wanting to dine at Southern Roots for some time. We were not disappointed. The food is very, very good. We had the fried green tomatoes, the sesame tuna with stir-fried veggies and the seared scallops with with ginger carrot salad and cheese grits. All were tasty and well prepared. The space is attractive and casual but crowded. Service... More

It's a great place to go on a date or with friends, very small and usually very crowded because the food and drinks are great. Be aware of parking do not park on the Wells Fargo parking lot they will tow your car this happen at night to my friend one night even though the bank was closed
