Good food, ok service

Ate here with two children and two adults for lunch. Service was just ok but friendly. Food was good - we had omelets and kids had burgers. Kids menu is a great deal considering how little kids eat ($6.50 for pancakes and bacon) and adult prices were normal standard lunch/brunch prices for a... read more

Got a tip about this place on our recent visit to Seabrook/Kiawah area. The kitchen did not disappoint. Our server, Leon, was excellent. Chicken and waffles and the shrimp & grits were the favorite among our group. A huge storm occurred during our lunch and the power went out, but the service did not miss a beat. We will definitely...

Although not a true Southener -- people always say Texas does not count -- the food at this little restaurant evoked memories of things I ate in my childhood and youth. The kitchen staff brings the use of seasonings that nod to the mixed ethnicity of the area. That type of cooking is becoming a lost art. It was nice... More

Several people recommended this place for breakfast. We were not disappointed by any means! Excellent food. Highly recommend the chicken and waffles or the chicken and biscuit. Kids loved the chocolate chip pancakes. Only disappointment was that they would not share the chicken recipe!

Coming to Kiawah we had heard good things about Southern Kitchen, but this was not the case. To be blunt, here's a list of why this was. 1. They forgot three of our orders and only realized it after everyone else had gotten their food and eaten it. 2. They got our sides wrong to the point of it being... More

Pretty good restaurant. Visited twice. Big portions. Chicken and waffles when in the south is a must. They have good Omlets and waffles too. Dinner also had large portions.

This was our first trip to Kiawah and of course our first to Southern Kitchen. It's a casual, relaxing place that serves breakfast food all day! They also have other things on the menu- I got a delicious grouper on a wonderful squash casserole! So good! The prices were very reasonable and the service was great. We will be going... More

Went around mid-day, and the food was excellent. I had breakfast, which they serve all day. The waitress was very nice and attentive! If I was not leaving town, I would return tomorrow morning to try additional items on the menu. I will come back if I'm here again on Kiawah Island for another conference.

Best food, Southern or any other. Service is excellent! If I closed my eyes and took a bite I would think I was in my Mother's kitchen as she was an excellent cook who hailed from Georgia.
