If you're looking for a great place to take out of town guests, this is it. Great southern food. You can't go wrong with brunch, lunch, or dinner. We've taken several friends and family here and they all rave about it. There's lots of "southern" food out there, but this one is different because it's more upscale. You feel like... More

On our final day in Atlanta, GA my husband and I diner at the Vinings location of South City Kitchen. After receiving our drinks were ordered their chicken livers as an appetizer. They came nicely cooked - still a bit pink in the middle - with caramelized onions and a corn puree. My main was the Georgia trout and was... More

My family and I went here for brunch on my 21st birthday and it was so good. Several of us ordered the chicken and waffles and it was delicious. Waffles melted in your mouth and the chicken had amazing flavor. The Brisket Benedict was also amazing!

Found this restaurant while we were on evacuation from the Hurricane. What a wonderful meal, southern food with an updated twist. We had the hanger steak, the fried chicken. Beautifully prepared and it tasted GOOD. Amber our server was helpful and attentive. Had such a great experience, came back another night (Pork chop and catfish). Pecan tart..out of this world!...

Great location with plenty of on-site parking. Reservations recommended. The staff is very attentive. Our waitress Emma was wonderful. The menu offers a variety with the Fried Chicken and the Shrimp and Grits probably being the best and most popular items. They were having a bit of a restaurant special when we were there-- an appetizer, entree and dessert for... More

Three for dinner and 7 appetizers. We couldn't get past them, so many looked so good! We had chicken livers, duck leg confit, fried green tomatoes, crab cake, baked oysters, pork barbeque, and mac and cheese. All were good, but the standouts were the crab cake (I'm from Maryland and I'm pretty picky about crabcakes), duck leg, and oysters. This... More

You have to try their cornbread muffins & butter. Very indulgent. They have the best friend chicken plate (I sub the greens for mac-n-cheese & its devine!). Also try the fried cheese fritters - so good! Fried green tomatoes (I was surprised I liked them!) are also a good choice.
