We dined here for a group dinner based on the recommendation of a colleague and we were not disappointed. To start, they have an excellent bar menu. Several top shelf liquors, beers, and wines. The wine list isn't stellar, but is above average and you will find some reasonably priced choices. The food is as the title has written, classic... More

Southern Roots is the crown jewel of the the steadily livening up atmosphere and night life of Jamestown, and it serves this role superbly. Never a disappointment for lunch or dinner, you cannot go wrong with its southern inspired cooking and wonderful variety. Great for families, couples, and even a terrific singles bar.

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
