No reservation allowed... You enter and you wait your turn. While waiting you can enjoy a drink. And watch the appealing dishes carried by the waiters/waitresses. You get hungrier. When you get a table you know you will enjoy your diner. Fresh food, slow cooking, great service, a very good selection of wine by the glass. Really a nice place... More

The parking is the first negative impression and the signage should be a bit better. Several people try to enter at the front but you come in at the rear. The patio area looks nice and they even had the fireplace going but none of the space heaters. Nobody was out there anyway. You come in the back door and... More

I love taking my Mom to new places and Southern Roots was a great find just down the road from our home in High Point. We'd actually been to the Jamestown restaurant before but not in awhile. And wow - we were totally blown away by the awesome hospitality, and delicious food. Spaghetti squash - order it now! I had... More

For a resident of the Mid-West, this was a superb Southern experience. I was with two local friends and we enjoyed a starter of fried green tomatoes. Very good! I then had the fish tacos which were excellent. The server was knowledgeable and efficient. All in all, I would recommend this restaurant hightly.

My son and I went here for dinner based on a superficial scan of reviews -- and had a great experience. Lovely wine list, chic country decor, casual but comfortably upscale. We shared a great pork belly appetizer -- well prepared (though grits could have used a little more seasoning). I had the shrimp and grits which had a lush... More

Terrific food! Love the vegetable plate; hard to choose from good selections. Saute' okra is a must. Best collards to be found. sweet potato fries are excellent. Just wish a corn muffin came with the plate. The noise level makes it difficult to have conversation, but I'm busy stuffing my mouth!

I really want Southern Roots to be my favorite restaurant. The food is amazing, and the cost for the quality of the food is great. I've never had a bad dish there. The sides are awesome: delicious mac and cheese, collards like my grandmother made, mashed potatoes that are out of this world. The service is generally good, though we... More

This is my second attempt at writing a review of this restaurant- I wrote the first one right after getting home on the night this occurred and it was rejected for its content... We met a group of friends there several months ago on a Saturday night for dinner. The restaurant is on the small side and is very busy... More

Tucked into tiny Jamestown is this wonderful, insanely popular Southern gourmet restaurant. Don't even try for reservations (they don't accept reservations!), just go early! We have enjoyed lunches and dinners here for a couple of years. The entrees are varied, delicious, and SR offers a complete bar, beer and wines. For lunch try the meatloaf. We recently enjoyed the Cajun... More

Took my son out for dinner for Parent's weekend at HPU because we loved it so much when we visited the college previously. There was a pretty hefty wait but it was well worth it. The food was fabulous! We sat outside (requested as inside is way too noisy) and enjoyed the atmosphere and the food - from appetizers to... More
