Good, unpretentious food, friendly staff, generous portions, reasonably priced. Well worth a visit, especially if you're staying at the Hilton Garden across the road (39, Avenue of the Americas). A great place for a relaxed meal.

The food here is excellent, reasonably priced and well portioned. The staff are cool people and all helpful. The place has a great vibe and has a comfortable restaurant and a busy bar. I actually want to take this place home with me. Check the mussels and popcorn shrimp with a few beers, enough to go around the table and... More

Looking for a reasonable, comfortable, affordable place to end the day in Tribeca/SoHo area, and ended up here due to a recommendation from the Hotel. LOVED IT. LOVED THE FOOD. LOVED THE PRICE (by manhattan standards…) even had a couple of Gluten Free options for me. Lots of other home-style choices and a few out of the ordinary on the... More

We stayed at the TriBeCa Grand Hotel and 'Souths' became our little local! We ate in there a few times and the food was always excellent, nothing fancy but always tasty. Atmosphere really nice and good service. Food prices are very reasonable in comparison to other bars and restaurants in the area. Drinks were good too, not much choice on... More

Souths was just over the road from our hotel we stayed at Grand Tribeca. Proper felt like a true American bar like you see in movies :) which was great. What I loved about this place above anything else was the staff. Very friendly and we had some great chats with Dillon and he also gave us recommendations on where... More

No pretensions, just a really good meal in a relaxed environment. Service and food were excellent; a good choice of starters, lunch and entrees to be had. Nothing fancy but nothing bland. I particularly like the theater seating along the back wall; very comfortable. Go, you wont be disappointed or hungry at the end of the meal. If you do... More

Standing outside of this place, wondering whether to go in or not, was given the opinion of several people on the side walk. The consensus...go in! So that we did. Fairly small place. Has like a bar area at the front and an eating area at the back. Drinks weren't that good, but the food...mmm. Good variety, excellent price, huge... More

Having brunch at South's is very easy! The casual scene is enjoyable and has great ambient music. Our waitress, Carla, was super friendly, but not on a annoying way. The weekend brunch is priced perfectly and this place is easy to have fun at with friends and also makes a perfect place to enjoy a brunch date!

We stayed in a hotel nearby, and wanted to eat lunch after shopping in Soho. We stumbled across South's Bar and we were pleasantly surprised by the standard of food at a very reasonable price. The Key Lime pie for desert was exceptional. Would definitely visit again when in New York. Its a typical New York Restaurant with friendly staff... More
