Went there three years ago and loved it, so when in Tacoma I had to return. Was very happy I did. Portions were very ample and food was delicious. A bit pricy, but worth it. Service was exceptional. Corncakes were fresh and delicious, and ham...More

We stopped in to the Southern Kitchen for breakfast on her way to Metropolitan Market to pick up some groceries. Having seen it on DDD, we were excited to have this nearby. The service was mediocre, the restaurant was dirty, and then we got the...More

We don't venture into Tacoma often so we had to get to the Southern Kitchen by GPS. The city should have road signs to direct you there! Great food is simple food cooked to perfection and this place has it down to an art. When...More
