Chicken and waffles

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.

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

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.

Great menu ranging from the traditional to the "kitchen sink" omlette. Good value for the money with a friendly and accommodating staff. Regular place for us to take visiting guests. Breakfast served all day.

Kitchen was in disarray, Hostess tried to seat us at table already taken by another party. It took us 40 min to get: 1 omelet, 2 orders french toast, 1 order bacon and eggs and 1 egg wrap. I asked for soft cooked bacon (NOT crisp), got burnt bacon on 1st plate and crisp bacon on 2nd plate.

We visited for breakfast. It was OK but not great. Seating inside was functional but no more, we couldn't get outside as it was busy. Server seemed a little grumpy at first but warmed up a little later. The two egg/two,sides option was quite small which was surprising given most of the servings seemed huge. Not much choice of hot... More
