Better family restaurants in the area, just skip this one.

This restaurant is just average at best. Cost for 4 people was $63. It lacks in flavor and seasoning. Most of them menu is fried. Decor is out dated, chairs were not comfortable. There is a large meeting area that you can eat in. They offer daily specials. Crowd is mostly elderly, seems like the... read more

What can I say? Food was good....one of us asked for lightly fried shrimp and it was just right. Server was spot on...never had an empty tea/water glass. Good family atmosphere. Go there! You won't be sorry.

I really enjoy and of the fried seafood they have, I also get the broiled shrimp and flounder. The chicken dish I love is the souvlaki. The service is excellent and staff is friendly.

I almost order seafood from this restaurant. I know it's not the specialty, but the fish is well prepared and tasty. My issue is with a couple of common side dishes. The cole slaw is chopped too finely (almost like it's been put in a blender) and swimming in liquid. The taste is OK. The hush puppies are OK, but... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful and the food is delicious. The restaurant is clean. On one of the many times I have visited Southern Family they were very short-handed. The cashier was also rushing around filling in where she was needed. She never seemed cross or out of sorts. Her attitude remained friendly throughout my visit.

Hosting a wide variety of food, Southerns offers everything from Fish and Steak to Chicken and Burgers. I can't truly remember a bad meal there. Is this a five star restaurant? No, but it is a nice place to go and share a good meal with friends and family. You will find that everyone eats there. Mostly your older crowd,... More

This restaurant has good food for money. And the portions are big; I always leave with enough food for another meal later. Service is also very good; fast and efficient.

Best seafood in Winston and at a very reasonable price. Friendly staff who do their best to get anything you need, regardless of whether it's their table or not. The atmosphere is very calming, other than the occasional baby screaming, but you can get that going to any restuarant. Good portion sizes for he price you pay.

This family run restaurant serves delicious home style comfort food. I've eaten there many times and never had anything that was not good. The fried fish and shrimp is excellent as well as the vegetable plates. Reasonably priced and warm, friendly staff. Love the neighborhood location.
