We loved the new menu with continuing emphasis on local sourcing. The chips and tapenade are a wonderful start to any meal. The maple salmon was exceptional.

This place is great and the type of place we love back home- local, fresh ingredients. Burger was amazing. My wife said her ruben was possibly hte best she has ever had. Staff is friendly and...

This restaurant offers a limited number of items, but each one is excellent. There were seemingly house made potato chips and tapenade for each table (instead of the usual bread/rolls). The soup, a broccoli, leek and cream was perfect. Stuffed mushroom appetizer was delightful, a bargain at $6. The vegetarian entree (stuffed portobello mushroom) was visually gorgeous and tasty excellent... More

A friend and I had been to the restaurant several times and enjoyed ourselves. The last visit was so horrendous we will never return. My friend got a gluten free reuben, and half the corned beef was so thick and tough it was inedible. Showed it to the waitress, she went into the kitchen and came back saying the cook... More

So refreshing to know where your food comes from! We had the Sunday brunch and I never had eggs potatoes or toast so fresh no exaggeration. The chef added real hot peppers and generous portions of goat cheese. We will definitely be back and excited to try the dinner and amazing organic wine list.

Outstanding gluten free menu. Food and service was terrific. Gluten free cheese cake is out of this world. Strongly recommend!

Invited by friends to try this former diner that catered a relatives party. Nice casual interior with a live musician on a Wed. Night. Wonderfully fresh salads and overall great entrees including pork tenderloin, lamb chops and scallops. One star removed for linguine with clams as they were very gritty. Service very attentive. Certainly a great experiance inside a rather... More

First time at Fifty South and we will definitely be going back. We had a Living Social deal which covered 1 appetizer, two entrees, two glasses of wine and a dessert for two people. Complimentary homemade potato "chips" with olive tapenade was a tasty start. We then had the Spicy Calamari appetizer with sweet chili thai sauce. It was absolutely... More

The veggie pot stickers were blackened. The vegetarian entree wasn't that great either. The lady who served us wasn't that attentive.
