No longer open. Many went there for the bar. Food was expensive and portions were small. Not surprised it closed.

We enjoyed a marvelous meal at Southern Exposure on May 16, 2015, just a few nights before the restaurant is due to close for family medical reasons. We were fortunate to have arrived at 5:45 when there was still a table available. By the time...More

The food here is fantastic and offers something different from the usual burger, bbq, chicken line that is the standard for this area. The atmosphere is fresh and vibrant. Some of the staff didn't seem particularly friendly, but I greatly enjoyed the cuisine!

This place is always a treat! The food and service are excellent. We moved from a large metropolitan area to a small town and it's been a challenge when it comes to eating out. This is an excellent place for a nice night out.
