We wanted to try this place and unfortunately we were not impressed! We ordered 2 orders of the Fried Chicken and our very pleasant waiter came back and said they only had 1 order left. We ordered the ribs, which were ordinary and lacked taste....More

Exceedingly well prepared southern staples, some with a twist, lend themselves well to the small plates format. The balsamic glazed ribs were excellent as were the fried chicken and shrimp and grits. Get the cornbread with the spicy honey. The buttermilk pie was a very...More

Recharge your Soul with our Southern-inspired menu. Our philosophy is rooted in 3 basic principles. Simplicity: At Soul, we let the food speak for itself. Our dishes are simple, balanced and skillfully prepared to bring out the natural flavors and textures. From Southern classics to contemporary fare, we are inspired by the flavors of the Carolinas, the Delta, New Orleans and more. Community: We believe a meal is as much about the people as it is about the food. Coming together to share a meal creates a sense of community and provides time to relax and connect with friends. Artfully designed small plates encourage our guests to share a meal like you would at home. Whether it’s a weekend brunch on the patio, a family dinner or happy hour with friends, we look forward to sharing our Soul with you. Integrity: Many of our ingredients are sourced locally. We work with local farmers, brewers and other purveyors to provide you with the freshest ingredients available.
