On a visit to Whiteville for a family gathering, my friend and I had a Friday night dinner at Southern Kitchen. I had read very positive reviews and my expectations were high. I could not have been more pleased. From the welcoming attention of the wait staff (Chelsey) to the fabulous menu equal to a nice restaurant in a much... More

Food at Southern kitchen is not at all what one might expect to find in the small town of Whiteville, NC! Not your traditional "Mom & Pop" style diner...the menu at this place rocks! A fusion of cultures and locally sourced food make for a delightful dining or lunchtime experience. Call ahead for a reservation in the evening. You will... More

Found this shop while searching for another restaurant. We were traveling East on 74 and wanted a "Mom & Pop" place to eat. It was well worth the 5 minutes it took to get there. The service was great. The restaurant is held in a building that looks to be about 100 years old. I believe it was previously a... More

My husband & I have had lunch and dinner at Southern kitchen. The food tastes so fresh and delicious! Love the menu. Wish we could make food taste this good! The pears in my salad added the best flavor. This restaurant is worth the trip. Thank You Southern Kitchen.

I found this treasure by pressing the nearby button on my wife's I phone. Boy was I surprised. This place is a find. Excellent food at reasonable prices. I had the portobello mushroom sandwich. By wife had one of their hamburgers. This was lunch. There is a little sister type restaurant with sandwiches right up the street. Service was good.... More

Wouldn't have thought of nice place to eat in Whiteville til I saw reviews on Trip Advisor, so chose Southern Restaurant. Not disappointed. Although tables are set for fine dining, You could dress up or nice casual... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. A modest ambiance, a passable wine list, outstanding food! Worth the visit to this charming town. I had mustard encrusted lamb chops with yukon gold potatoes and French green beans, truly delicious. The house salad was so-so. Service good, prompt, cheerful. I would definitely stop again for a meal.

I am originally from this little town, but have lived and traveled quite a bit. Southern Kitchen/Madison Lounge is the ONLY Upscale cuisine you will find in this small town. The chef is AMAZING! The atmosphere is inviting, sophisticated, and all around fun.

Just ate at OSK and it was great as usual. Had fried green tomatoes that were served hot, crunchy on the outside and tasty on the inside. Entrées were rib eye, and penne and filet. Steak was cooked just right. Did not have to search penne to find the yummy filet mignon. And a bananas foster that was delicious and... More

Thank you so much! My husband always brags that I can make people eat things they hate the most and make them love it... I guess he was right, for once ;) It is always a pleasure to cook for my regulars, and I hope I'll get to cook for you many times more. Hope to see you again soon,... More

I am a local but had never been to Southern Kitchen. While my brother was visiting from Virgina we met friends her for appertizers and drinks. We enjoyed everything. The atmosphere was nice and cozy and the food was really good. Looking forward to my next visit to Southern Kitchen!
