    The location is great, the ambiance was also great, the server took a little time to come to our table but once he started, he did not miss a beat! I enjoyed the Shrimp & Grits without the ham, it was seasoned well, the shrimp were a very nice size and overall the portion was great for lunch. Two of the guest at my table didn’t care for their meals as much, which was the hamburger and a bowl of lobster soup. The 4th guest noted she enjoyed her pulled pork, the flavor was spot on. I would recommend this location for a lunch meeting, or simply meeting up with friends and family. The entire staff was pleasant!

    Each month I choose a restaurant to have a Mommy Date with each of my 4 children. This date was with the 24 yr old who loves fine dining. Our server was excellent and host staff was pleasant. Restaurant was very clean. Staff was attentive and the atmosphere was pleasant. The food and wine were both good. South City Kitchen will stay on my list of Restaurants to explore with the others.

    Brunch on a Sunday was enjoyable, food and service were outstanding as expected. Noise level was manageable only because we sat on the patio outside (inside was very loud). Not sure about value as offering wasn’t worth the cost…

    We ordered three brunch plates, and they were very tasty. We also had lattes, and these were good. We didn't try the brunch cocktails, but they looked amazing. A couple of things about this location. Definitely a bit rough for Saturday morning since there are clubs around that probably go until late Friday night, therefore the smell outside, trash left around, etc. is not ideal if you are perhaps showing a tourist around, I would not take them there. Parking is a pain, we had to pay $10 at a parking lot nearby. Just for this reason, I wouldn't come again unless I happen to be in one of the buildings nearby, specially when SCK has other locations in the ATL area. Service was superb, they were able to accommodate us as my mom can't go up the stairs and they found us a table in the ground floor. The restroom situation is also a little rough, meaning they are upstairs or there is one down the hall at the entrance, again, not the best look. The menu is good, the execution of the meals is also good, but we found it pretty pricey. A side of bacon is $7.

    I wanted to eat Southern food and this was the place to experience that. The fried chicken was juicy and light and crispy. The collard green was perfectly seasoned. The basket of corn bread and muffin was delicious with the sweet butter. The spoon bread had the perfect balance of sweet and savory.

    South City Kitchen has always been one of the restaurants I choose when I have clients in town. Their menu gives everyone in your group something to choose from and is will be excellent. Of course their fried chicken is a must have if you or someone in your party is looking for traditional southern fried chicken

    South City is a staple for us. Always good food and service. It is a little loud and crowded so not a place for long conversation or romance. Our server this time was excellent and our food well prepared although the dessert--angel pie--was disappointing.

    Let me just start by saying our server, Manny, made this dinner an even more enjoyable evening than just the great food! His knowledge of the menu and descriptions of every dish we asked about was absolutely on spot! The smoked lamb pasta took the prize as the best overall taste profile, but we thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ordered! If you’re in the mood to try something a little different for an appetizer, I highly recommend getting the spiced cauliflower. So many great flavors going on here as well! They also have a great wine selection, but unfortunately we didn’t save room for dessert! We will definitely be coming back when in Atlanta.
