My daughter and I loved the friend green tomatoes as an appetizer....The crab cake with salmon was delicious as were the collard greens and mixed vegetable salad...The pianist playing in the background while we were having lunch was an extra special touch. We also liked the decor of the room with each table having a variety of different styled chairs... More

I had the shrimp po boy and side of Mac and cheese and both were fantastic. Hubby had the club sandwich and fries and said it was one of the best clubs he ever had. Service was great too. Love the look!

Looking for an excellent brunch spot with a great atmosphere? Well SoHo South is that place!!! Expect a wait on the weekends but don't leave because the food was amazing. Ordered the chicken & waffles which was a huge portion that comes with a side. Very good brunch! Friends ordered the spinach dip and the southern quesadilla's which were both... More

This place has a really interesting blend of antique and modern elements. The fried green tomato sandwich was very tasty and a unique taste. The corn and crab chowder was good, but not the creamy sort as I was expecting, but was more brothy with tomatoes. The "spring break" cocktail was very refreshing...fruity but not overly sweet. I could have... More

Our dance group ate there. We didnt realize they closed early afternoon. There were 15 minutes left until closing. They invited us to stay and said no worries. Our food was delicious and they treated us as if we had all the time in the world. The decor is unique with doors and shutters on the wall. Bookshelves. Great food.

Outstanding food. Family group of 6 and all got something different, and all raved of how awesome it was. We of course shared bites of all the lunches. Portions are generous and the price is reasonable! Would defiantly go back in a heartbeat!

We took our toddler for lunch. The food was very good. The restaurant has high ceilings and gives you a feeling you are outdoors. However, this atmosphere does make it rather noisy. My daughter really liked the Mac and Cheese. My salad was very good but a little on the small size for the cost.

Description
Soho South Cafe has been made famous by its patrons as one of Savannah's staple weekly lunch and Sunday brunch spots. Opening its doors in 1997, Soho South Cafe is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Savannah, appropriately named after the iconic New York City neighborhood for its proximity to nearby shops and entertainment venues. Built originally as an automotive service station in 1945, the building sat vacant for a number of years before the restaurant's original owners acquired the space and transformed it into a restaurant. Most recently, the restaurant was acquired by Daniel Reed Hospitality and remodeled to make improvements to the existing model which represents the latest adaptation as it stands today. The design of the restaurant incorporates elements of iconic, archetypal New York City. The quirky, eclectic esthetic lends a sense of humor to the monumental, vast interior space which includes the buildings original exposed elements such as the steel windows, iron trusses, and solid wooden garage doors. The overall atmosphere results in a casual dining experience that works perfectly for lunch and private events.
