    Food was good and they did a great job of accommodating our large group, all of whom had bags (we were on our way to the airport) which they stored for us. Great experience all around.

    The best service ever. My husband was not thrilled with the waitress's recommendation and she brought him his second choice entree! Fried Green tomatoes were awesome as well as the shrimp n grits!

    By far the best chicken and waffles in the city. The chicken is perfectly fried and seasoned and the waffle is heavenly. They can both stand on their own, but together...pure food magic.

    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu in this piece! Chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits and the crab cakes -- it's all good! The speciality drinks are the bomb as well! Nice spot!

    Fun fact: I once sat and ate with a famous Chicago Bulls player here and didn't even realize what a big shot he is until I left. We both got the buttermilk fried chicken!

    Ok, so chicken and waffles are not southern (seriously, look it up!), but that doesn’t mean we haven’t welcomed it into the fold and perfected it! After all, fried chicken is a southern staple. Read more

    The pan roasted duck breast with red quinoa, Tuscan kale, and blood orange jus was amazing. If you have never tried duck, try this!

    Fantastic experience tonight - every dish and drink delicious, gracious, not too cloying service. I rec the smoked pork chopped, fried chicken, trout, pineapple upside down cake.

    For brunch, we love the cheddar scrambled eggs, stone-ground grits, and applewood smoked bacon and for dinner, the buttermilk fried chicken is where it's at.

    This isn't just a fried chicken joint - it's Southern food done proper. The staff has an intimate knowledge of gluten free preparation and offers a separate menu of rotating selections. Yum!

    Areas of the restaurant are a little dark if you are one of those people who prefer to see what you are eating, but don't worry, they provide pen lights!

    Chicken & waffles are only available on Saturdays and Sundays during brunch! I learned this the hard way after coming in on a Friday afternoon.

    The trending taste this week is the classic Southern favorite, fried green tomatoes. What better way to experience this taste than with some goat cheese at one of your favorites, South City Kitchen.

    Shrimp and grits were really good. Would recommend brunch here and taking a 1st or 2nd look at the drink menu. Really great drinks to pair with your meal.

    Some of the best southern-inspired fried chicken on the planet. Pork belly and fried green tomatoes are superb starters. Great service all around.

    Holy Cow, your Grandma would slap the cook the food is so good. Okra, fried chicken, butter peas, mashed potatoes, gravy...and Sweet Tea. A must-eat Southern Treat.
  • Allison B.
    Come hungry and ready to share. Things you need to eat: fried green tomatoes, apple butter, fried chicken n' waffles and the BLT. Hot damn delicious!

    The fried chicken was great, but the star was the light as air, but not like whipped cream Banana Pudding and the peachy Back Porch whiskey concoction. Loved it!

    Try the Chicken & Waffle offered during Sunday Brunch. Autumn is a great server! Ask for her section. Grits & Fried Green Tomatoes were good too.

    Midtown's original Southern fine dining struggles to keep up with the trend it created. Go for the pork shank with parsnip and celery root purée Read more

    Fried green tomatoes and fried chicken are must orders. Get a back porch bourbon and georgia peach cocktail to wash it all down

    Fried green tomatoes, crab cake toast, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and collard greens....yep I'm useless for the rest of the day.

    Do not miss a chance at the fried chicken. Oh. My. God. Also, the cornbread with fresh butter is EVERYTHING. Leave your diet at the door and indulge a little; it's worth it!

    Highly recommend: In house hot sauce. Catfish Ruben. Collard kimchi (gateway entry level, but balanced).

    Great service! They proactively split the portions in two if they can tell you intend to share. Love that!

    Crave from the Grave: Fried green tomatoes, buttermilk fried chicken, and some banana pudding for dessert makes this ol Southern spirit feel right at home.

    Great food. The chicken & waffle is yummy. Crispy chicken that isn't greasy at all. Grits & lemonade are also good.
