Fun, casual atmosphere, outstanding southern cuisine and service. To be clear, the diverse menu is not typical southern food, think southern food with a unique upscale twist! I personally love straight up deep southern, no frills cooking, but if you aren't used to it, you can't eat that every day! This restaurant has some fresh, (and lighter) grilled items to... More

Was in Atlanta with friends for Falcons game. Wanted to have a good but different dining experience for Saturday night. Did my usual TripAdvisor research and came up with a good choice in my opinion. Made a reservation through Open Table which worked flawlessly. We were seated promptly and received excellent service from nice waiter from New Orleans who did... More

While in Atlanta we definitely wanted some good southern cooking. South City Kitchen was a good choice. Parking is difficult, but once we found a spot we were seated right away, even though our reservation was for later in the evening. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly, if perhaps a little aloof. We had the fried green tomatoes, the shrimp... More

Atmosphere was nice as long as you are not seated in the back room where tables are crowded together. The bar area is beautiful and the bar tenders attentive. We had a reservation and while there was plenty of seating in the less crowded area of the restaurant the hostess wanted to seat us in the back room that was... More

We walked in on a busy Saturday and were seated right away (although it filled up fast and reservations are recommended). The brunch menu was awesome - really cool southern spin on a classic brunch menu. Portions are good sized and everything we had was excellent, particularly the smoked brisket benedict. Great cocktail menu as well.

The food, ambiance and service were spectacular. Best Southern Fried Chicken on the planet. Fried green tomatoes blend with cheese and tomato sauce to make this a delicacy found nowhere else. Top it off with Banana pudding creme brûlée and you have what one may ask for as a last meal on death row. The price is reasonable and the... More

Wow such great fried green tomatoes! The homemade biscuits are to die for. Had the fried chicken-it was great but quite salty. Great service. Several had the shrimp & grits & loved those.

A friend and I heard about this restaurant and decided (since we were in Atlanta) to try southern food. Though I'm a vegertarian I knew I would find something on the menu. There were no tables due to the Saturday night crowd so we sat at the bar, which was definitely a great experience. Watching the bartenders work their magic... More

Description
Celebrating over 18 year as one of Atlanta's favorite restaurants, South City Kitchen Midtown specializes in contemporary Southern cuisine with a sophisticated twist. Combining the energy of Atlanta with the warmth of a Southern home, the restaurant is nestled in an updated, historic bungalow on the city's famous Crescent Avenue. Dine on local Southern favorites such as shrimp and grits, buttermilk fried chicken, she-crab soup, fried green tomatoes and banana pudding while enjoying the view of our exhibition kitchen or the city skyline on one of the best patios in the city. This truly is dining the way the new South intended.
