The food was excellent and the waiter was amazing (Anthony).The next time I dine there I would love to have him serve me again.The only complaint is the noise level was hard to talk, but otherwise a great experience.

Excellent food and service, not our first time there. Fried chicken entree, especially outstanding! If you are planning on carrying on a conversation over dinner, that will be very difficult; as the place is LOUD!

One of my favorite places. The service is always good and the food is consistently excellent. Sunday waffles are to die for, but next time I'm going to have to have the crab cake hash -- snagged a bit of my friend's and it was amazing!

I absolutely LOVE South City Kitchen! I was living in Atlanta when it first opened and have always recommended it to friends and business associates looking for a unique Atlanta restaurant. I moved to Griffin and still make the trek to dine with friends at South City Kitchen, The food is consistently fantastic and creative. It is always in my top 3 picks of restaurants in the metro area. The service at my last two visits was exceptional and ironically, it was the same server, Haley!! Thank you!

Some nice updates on classic Southern dishes like fried chicken and pimento cheese - really, if you haven't tried it, don't knock it. Also some lighter fare like flounder with a side of awesome vegetables. Nice atmosphere, laid back but service was very attentive. I was visiting Atlanta but if I lived in town I would definitely be back

Second visit to South City Kitchen was even better than the first. A friend and I made our way to South City Kitchen on a Sunday night after a long flight in to Atlanta and it did not disappoint. We started with the pimento cheese and then split the fried chick and hangar steak. I absolutely love the fried chicken, especially the crispy, flavorful crust, but I must say that the hangar steak is my new favorite. I will absolutely return to South City Kitchen, most likely on my next visit!

This was my first time here. I had the fried chicken. It was excellent, crispy on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside. The ambience was good but noisy. They were super busy but the service was not rushed. I will definitely be back. Just a note, if you do not want to wait a long time make a reservation.

South City is my daughter and son-in-law's so when I asked for a recommendation for dinner for a group of friend's coming to Atlanta to see a play, South City Kitchen was it. Our party of six enjoyed every bite of our meal. The service was attentive but not intrusive.

SCK is our go to place for brunch, especially before seeing a matinee at the FOX. Food is really top notch, service is great, and cocktail menu is varied and interesting. Slice of upscale southern comfort food in midtown

South City is one of my favorite ATL restaurants. I only wish they all carried the Gouda Fritters and Bourbon Salmon salad...those are delicious dishes.
The Midtown location didn't have those to dishes when I went but it was still a good meal! Not to mention their bread basket is superb:).

Beautiful space, its a renovated old bungalow. We had a nice table overlooking the downstairs portion of the restaurant. Our server Anthony was very gracious and prompt, he took the time to suggest some of the favorite dishes and drinks. The food was fine, not bad but certainly not worth a second trip.
We ordered the baked oysters, which seemed a little dry, and the portion was small (only 4 oysters, most places do 6/order). They weren't separated from the "foot" either, so that was a messy endeavor. The she crab bisque was really good, the only complaint was that it was topped with cheap, stringy backfin meat instead of lump (which obviously would make it more expensive, so I understand). For entrees we ordered the steak and the fried chicken, neither of which were remarkable. Nothing was really wrong with anything that we ordered, but nothing was worth going back for (except that bisque).
Plenty of other options for innovative, fresh, and delicious southern food in the city, don't waste your time here! If someone else suggested South City (and they were paying) we would go back with no problems, but it wouldn't be on our radar again.

The waiter was very kind and helpful. Wonderful options for someone looking for gluten free foods in Atlanta. The food was fresh and delicious. The space is a little loud, not a place to go if you need to have a serious or deep conversation.

Took my mother and daughter to South City for a mid-week dinner. Restaurant is very busy and bar is for dining customers, so weighting is awkward. Even with a reservation, we waited about 15 minutes. Once seated upstairs, we ordered drinks from a good selection of cocktails, wine and beer. They arrived relatively soon. The Manhattan was excellent with a special cherry. My Practically Perfect gin concoction was a bit strange, and the mojito was great. The fried green tomatoes were awesome. The fried chicken is the house dish and was delicious with mashes potatoes. My trout was good, but not as good as the chicken. The peach cobbler Ala mode was very tasty. All in all, very good. But also very loud.

I love the atmosphere in this restaurant, and the food is amazing. I had the Springfield chicken and it was cooked to absolute perfection. Oh, don't forget to indulge in the biscuits and cornbread, as they are both scrumptious.

Server, food, staff, ambience, everything was wonderful. We were in town for one night and I am so glad we decided to give this place a try. Better than expectations and better than word of mouth. Will be telling people this is a must spot. Good was great - flavorful, affordable, and delectable. Was there with several people and no one left not satisfied with everything.
