Description: What constitutes "New South Flavors?" For us, it is begins with reverence for those time-honored Southern dishes. Served up by wonderful home cooks for years. We respect the freshness, the flavors and the food itself. But we like to jazz it up a little, add something deliciously unexpected to delight your palate. Our interpretation of traditional Southern fare is creative, inventive and satisfyingly scrumptious. Cheers to New South Flavor!

“Delicous biscuits!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We had good food here, but I don't know that this place is up to the hype. I do love the biscuits with house-made blueberry jam as the bread option. We all liked our food, and the menu is good but not outstanding. Service had a little bit of that air of, "We are well-known & you are lucky to be here so I don't care too much about your table."

“Nice decor, good food.”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Heard so much about this place. Just had to come. The one that is not downtown is easier to get to & park. They also opened another restaurant in Charlotte. It was fantastic but loud on a Sunday after church. (Panthers ball game). We got the grilled cheese sandwich with pimento cheese which was awesome!!

“Delicious biscuits, but the wait is another story”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

The title says it all. We walked through the doors at 1pm and waited at the counter for about 5 minutes in front of the hostesses before we were acknowledged. After being told the wait for 2 people was 30-40 we waited politely for 35 minutes, then finally got a seat. Once the nice waitress took our order we promptly were served waters, and our drinks from the bar. The biscuits were AWESOME and my husband and I enjoyed the Appalachian egg rolls. We had to wait over an hour and a half to get our main entrees which were mediocre. I ordered the sassy chicken and the spices were over the top. The Mac and cheese was ok, pretty average and nothing special. I guess the manager noticed that the wait time was ridiculous for us because we received a discount on our bill and were handed a $10 gift card on the way out the door which was a nice gesture. Overall, be prepared to wait at this location.

“Lots of variety, tasty choices”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Enjoy a warm biscuit with honey or jam while you wait for your food. My soup and sandwich were excellent, hot and delicious. I had a grilled cheese with lots of cheeses on it - yummy. This place, and the downtown site, are very busy so go at a slightly "off" time or be prepared to wait a bit. It's worth the wait - service was friendly and prompt once I was seated.

“Would not return”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Although we had made a reservation weeks in advance, notified the servers that we were a large group with a number of children, we were met with attitude. They seated us outside which was fine, but they acted the whole time as if we were such a bother to them. The children were all very well behaved so I can't understand that being an issue. Southern hospitality was nowhere to be found! The food was just okay. Several of us wrote email to the restaurant after the fact advising of our unsatisfactory treatment and none were acknowledged.
