South City Kitchen Midtown Ratings and Reviews

Not impressed. The flavors in my meal were such that I couldn't eat more than a few bites - pretty bad. The waiter, while polite, was rather pushy about coming by the table a million times asking if we were ready to order yet and grabbing plates off the table. It was so loud in the outside patio I could barely hear the person across from me. I don't understand why people rave about this place. When I get to choose the restaurant we go to in the future, it won't be this one.

Excellent, knowledgeable server. Food was excellent. As it got later, it got noisier and harder to talk. Most of the tables are set close together, so not conducive to private conversation. Would recommend to anyone looking for good southern-style food.

Delicious Brunch items and creative southern variety. The noise level is excessive and really hampered the meal. We were just a party of four and really struggled to speak to each other. Enjoyed the food and it was a third visit to the restaurant, but the loudness took away from the meal.

I love South City Kitchen. This last time was a tad disappointing. We went for brunch. They under cooked the bacon. When requested for a re fry, they overcooked it. They started all over and got it right. They were very accommodating. My husband did not enjoy the sausage biscuit at all. My chicken and waffles were excellent though! I don't think we will be back for brunch but definitely dinner!

This was the last night that my friend from California would be here in Atlanta, and I wanted her to experience the great food at South City Kitchen. She thoroughly enjoyed her dinner. It was a great dining experience.

The upstairs area was very loud (music and chatter) and crowded which made it difficult to have a 1 on 1 conversation. We moved to the bar halfway through the meal which was much better. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. Would have been a 4 star experience with more secluded seating.

I have been here many times while on business trips to Atlanta. Whenever I want to show business associates from outside the South about Southern food, South City Kitchen is my first choice. Can be very noisy conversation, so book an early time to enjoy a quiet meal.

Visiting Atlanta for the first time, took wife here on recommendation from co-worker. Excellent service, interesting drink options, nice take of fresh, local, southern dishes. Both of us loved the menu and our dishes. Had the chicken livers, fried green tomatoes, smoked pork chop, shrimp and grits, and banana bread brulee pudding. All solid/excellent dishes. No question, a great choice.

As always our experience was top notch. We had a reservation for group of seven for Sunday brunch. The table was ready and waiting for us, which is not always a sure thing in some restaurants even with a reservation. The service was excellent and the food delicious as always.

I was looking so forward to this meal and was incredibly disappointed. We arrived at 8 for our reservation on a Saturday night. We expected to dine but instead we were out of there by 845. We were rushed in and out. Our crab cake appetizer wasn't even hot and we hardly touched the pork chop which had absolutely no flavor. The fried chicken was good but not worth a return visit. The biscuits and cornbread were dry and old👎There are too many fabulous restaurants in Atlanta to give this a second try.

We had a great time at SCK. Waitress (Amber) was very friendly but didn't involve herself in our conversations. Amber didn't know a lot about different beers (brought me a pale ale when I asked for an IPA, not a big deal, it was a good beer anyway). Had the fried chicken and shrimp & grits, both very good. Amber is also a whiz at whisking away the crumbs with her little crumb getter thingy. It's a little clangy noise wise downstairs, maybe upstairs is better. Overall we enjoyed ourselves.

Good place to eat. I heard this place from my ALT friend and looks like it owes its fame to fried chicken. However the fried chicken is not so good as expected. Surprisingly all other dishes are stunning . And kitchen remade the chicken for me. So it is overall a great restaurant and it could put some effort on chicken quality control.

Excellent service with professionally polished staff, food delivery timing, & presentation. Our server, Amber, was fantastic - sensitive to our timing needs, special occasion, and every request, all with a warm personality and smile of genuine care about our first experience at SCKM! The food was scrumptious - we tried multiple appetizers, entrees, and desserts - all first class! Yes, the acoustics of the place make for a little noise, but the buzz is positive with conversation and interactions of a happening restaurant, that is more than an acceptable trade-off vs an overall terrific dining experience.

We wanted to try South City Kitchen since it was so highly rated on Trip Advisor. The service was excellent, the food was very good but the noise level was excessive for conducting meaningful conversation. Restaurant is in need of some sound absorption material.
