South City Kitchen Midtown Ratings and Reviews
Great experience. The food was fantastic and pricing was very reasonable. The southern fried chicken was so moist and couldn't have been done better. The pappardelle pasta dish with homemade lamb sausage was so flavorful. The only help I could offer is that the amount of Tasso ham in the shrimp and grits dish overwhelmed the shrimp. The waiter was fantastic and very helpful. Will definitely visit again.
This was our third time at SCK, and we have never been disappointed! Love the unparalleled food, great service, delicious and creative drinks, and a most comfortable atmosphere. This cozy little spot has easily earned its way into our short-list of in-city favorites, and we're already looking forward to our next tasty visit. See you soon, South City Kitchen!
Dined before an event at Symphony. Terrific Southern Cooking with upscale twist. Good/attentive service and fun/easy place to dine & visit with friends. Manager gave us our desserts because HE thought they took a little long getting to table! We'll be back.
Mediocre at best. It came highly recommended but I was NOT impressed. Had the fried chicken and it was just ok. It was ridiculously loud and I could not even hold a conversation with my business partner. There are better places to get GOOD southern food in the city!!
On a recent trip to Atlanta, we were on a quest for authentic southern food and South City certainly delivered! We started with fried green tomatoes, pickled shrimp and the pimento cheese and each one was more delicious than the other. Followed that with shrimp & grits, BLT and pulled pork sandwiches all of which we enjoyed tremendously. The portions are substantial so bring your appetite. My husband tried the Arguably Perfect cocktail and I had a hard to find bourbon off their extensive list. We were fortunate enough to be seated outside on the lovely covered patio which was quiet and cozy - exactly what we were looking for. The dessert menu was enticing but unfortunately the appetizer and lunch portions did us in...guess we will have to return...
Went for Sunday Brunch. We had an excellent time. The Chef, John Spotkill, came over to our table to make sure everything was satisfactory and it was. I have no complaint about the food. However, our server was not the personable type at all. I've eaten here before on many occasions and the service has always been excellent so I'm counting this experience as a one time thing.
South City Kitchen Midtown - Nice, very nice. This location is definitely a popular spot albeit a little cramped. The noise level is kind of high. George our server was on point. We demolished the Fried Green Tomato Tomatoes with Goat cheese. This of course must be served hot. The breading/batter was delish. South City Breakfast was okay. The Jumbo Crab Cake was decent. It was prepared breaded but I wished the Crab Cake was done Maryland (MD) style. MD style would have taken it to another level with the Tasso - ham artichoke, over easy egg with chive hollandaise sauce and tomato relish. The coffee and Orange juice was good but the Bellini needs some work. I would definitely give South City Kitchen Midtown another go around or few to experience some of the other dishes on their lunch and dinner menus.
We met here for lunch on a Saturday because I had read very good reviews. The noise level was so high we couldn't hear each other talk. A couple of friends ordered fried chicken and were happy with their meal. Another person ordered a salad, not much can go wrong with a salad so he was pleased. A friend who loves crab cakes made this choice her meal. It was barely okay, with not much flavor and it came with cubed potatoes that tasted pretty bad. I ordered breakfast. The grits were the best I've ever had but the scrambled eggs had no taste and the bacon was mostly fat. Desserts were very good. However, we ordered coffee and never got it but were charged for it. They had to issue a new bill after I pointed out about the coffee. I treated my friends and paid $160.00 for a mediocre experience.
Fantastic service from a true professional - thank you, Pablo!!!
Everything was fantastic; must haves were Fried Green Tomatoes, Beets, & fingerlings with salsa verde!
Restaurant was quite loud but the food and service made up for that.
Will definitely go back if I'm ever in Atlanta again!
