Lovely space and decor! Nice atmosphere and overall setting. Food was a little above average and service was so so. My husband and I visited for brunch. I would try it out again for lunch/dinner.

A group of 3 , one vegetarian, 2 omnivores, truely enjoyed lunch. Attentive Service, delicious Tomato basil soup, fab crab cakes but the roast beef sandwich was cold, contrary to the announcement of the lovely waitress. That was a little damper.

The food has always been very good at southern lights, as is the service. I always really like the homemade soups. for an added bonus, thursday nights are half price wines by the glass and that just added to the excellent meal.

Who knew? I've lived here for years and stumbled upon this spot after work. The fried chicken and mac and cheese made with needed sausage was delicious. Chicken was tender. Mac and cheese is made with Gouda cheese and creamy . Will definitely come back

Took a friend to lunch at Southern Lights for her birthday. She absolutely LOVES the cheese sub and ordered that. Our food was hot and delicious and the service was great. She says she only goes to Southern Lights on special occasions and her birthday was special because of the great food and service.

Southern Lights Bistro is a wonderful local restaurant that makes you fell like home. The waitstaff are so friendly and helpful. They will keep you informed of the menu and make helpful suggestions. The food is excellent and the servings can be to your appetite. I am most fond of their small plates.

You simply could not beat that value. Both the burger and the salad were outstanding. We would have been pleased paying full price, but half price was a... More
