“Original and great”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

I've eaten several times at Southern Charm. It's Southern cooking with a Caribbean twist. Unusual flavors and excellent. Okra with tomatoes and cumin? - wonderful. Flavorful and unique - I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Southern cooking with a bit of flair. Desserts are excellent also. Small and cozy.

“A different twist”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Really good southern cooking with a twist. Must have list: fried green tomato tart, sweet potato hush puppies, mac n' cheese and meatloaf. The lemon squall non-alcoholic drink was delish. Not a fan of the over use of salt, or the "white gravy" on almost everything (skip that if your getting chicken and waffles) overall a solid place with SUPER FRIENDLY waitstaff.

“Great birthday dinner”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Went for a birthday dinner and had waffles and chicken--both were great. Looking forward to returning and trying other menu choices.

“I wish I had a bigger appetite (and I eat a LOT!)”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

A friend who's a bartender in town (at the bull) told us if we want this kinda food we gotta go here. And yeah I'm stoked we did. Had the coconut mint julep which was so good. Then the tart followed by catfish and fried chicken.... Amazing! Thanks for the great food and service!

“GREAT”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Amazing food a little outside of the city centre. Both our choices of chicken were super good and came with a bunch of sides. Small but good beer selection. The final coconut/pecan pie was delicious. Waitress Corina was also very very nice and friendly.
