We went here on a Thursday night for our wedding anniversary. Even though it was a weeknight, it was pretty crowded, but we didn't have to wait for a seat. I'm sure if we'd gone on Friday instead, there would have been a wait. We had the excellent fried oyster appetizer that was large enough for 3-4 people to share.... More

The restaurant is so cute. And people talking loudly, I must admit. I guess the food forced you into having a good time? Anyway, the service was quick and pleasant. Now about the gumbo. They serve it on a bed of red beans and rice. Interesting. The taste was spicy but not hot spicy. No bitter pepper taste either. Just... More

We stopped in one evening for just a cocktail. The bartender was excellent and the atmosphere was really nice. Relaxed and kind of shabby chic. I took a look at the menu and the food as it was being served and decided I will go back for dinner and drinks soon.

Our meal started with the fried green tomatoes, which were very fresh and delicious. For entree's we had the stuffed chicken breast and the blackened... More

Passing through and met family who was also passing through town. They asked a local about the best place to eat and Southern Roots was the suggestion. WINNER! Great southern, casual-chic atmosphere. We ate inside, but there a was a live band on the patio. Menu is unique with southern comfort as well as healthy foodie options. I personally enjoyed... More

The menu is so wonderful that it's hard to decide! I went with the vegetable plate. Sautéed okra is fabulous, and the collards are great. The spaghetti squash is a like a cheese casserole, much heavier than I expected but incredibly tasty. My fries and the fried green tomatoes were a bit greasy, though. Best part of the meal was...

Went at 6pm on Thursday night. From other reviews I was expecting a wait. My wife and I were seated immediately. I had shrimp and grits which was very good, probably the second best I have ever had. Wife had country style steak, lima beans and Mac and cheese. She said it was very good. Service was excellent. A little... More
