Fabulous lunch & service. Crab/salmon croquette was divine. Side of corn more like a chowder and delicious. Will be back.

I would have rated one star but the food was ok. Wasn't amazing, a bit over salty, but presentation was nice. Service was extremely slow. And the kindness seemed forced. 15 minutes to take our order and another 10 to pick up check. Probably a bad day but won't come back to try again.

Had a fabulous lunch with friends. The CBGB Sandwich was so delicious, it may be my new favorite. The alcoholic beverages are light and refreshing; the atmosphere fantastic! I would recommend to anyone visiting Savannah!

We have visited this cafe many times over the years and we came for lunch today. When our order arrived, quiche and salad and the spinach and bacon salad, both were swimming in dressing. We could not tell our server because she disappeared and eventually I saw her sitting at a table with other customers. We waved down another server... More

We went here for a business lunch. The food was excellent. I had the quiche of the day and a salad. Another person had the meatloaf sandwich and another had the tacos. Everyone really enjoyed their food. The restaurant is eclectically decorated with doors and shutters, various kinds of lighting and non matching tables. What a great idea. The food... More

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!

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.
