Somewhat early reservation made on a Thursday evening. Table was ready, but we sat at
the bar for a few minutes to unwind. Once seated the service was great - nice beer selection with local stuff so got to try something I hadn't had before.
Food served promptly and place filled up while we were eating. Good server who knew her menu.

Excellent meal and fantastic service. Noise level a bit high for a romantic meal but energetic and happy. Our server (Manny) took great care to describe the menu and offer suggestions. The food was a fantastic combination of flavors and styles. Tried the vegetarian main course only to sample the molasses/curry combination. Wonderful. Will definitely be back.

Wonderful lunch. Great service. Sat upstairs by the window. Server was very helpful. had the sauteed chicken livers for appetizer. these are the best in Atlanta in my opinion. had the in season heirloom tomato BLT sandwich very flavorful and not overly heavy. homemade potato chips cooked perfectly and crispy. my son had the pimento cheese burger and loved it - perfectly cooked and very flavorful. Great lunch. Great service.

We really enjoyed South City Kitchen Midtown. The service was friendly, professional and efficient. The food is amazing! Fried green tomatoes, it was my 1st experience and they were awesome. The fried chicken is absolutely the best I have ever tasted. I highly recommend this restaurant.

What a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was fantastic. We had the fried chicken and shrimp and grits. The appetizers were great too. Fried green tomatoes were the bomb. Different desserts were had by everyone and shared and they were all awesome.

Sunday brunch was excellent! The fried chicken was outstanding. The brisket eggs Benedict was also very good! Great place for brunch- however, if you want a drink, wait until after 12:30 on a Sunday when they are allowed to serve alcohol.

Wow! My friends and I had a great experience at South City! Our servers were awesome. I can't remember their names (the girl had full sleeves of tattoos including a Red Sox one and the guy was being trained by her), but they were awesome. So nice and attentive, great senses of humor, and made us feel at home. The food was amazing. We ordered the fried green tomatoes and pimento cheese to share. Amazing. The lemonade was delicious. And the COMPLIMENTARY BISCUITS AND CORNBREAD AND PEACH PRESERVES?! Are ya'll trying to kill me? So good. I was a little disappointed in my chicken and waffles. I found the waffle to be way too sweet, but the chicken was flavorful and moist. The ambiance is very nice for a Sunday brunch, but it was crazy busy so make a reservation. Definitely one of my best dining experiences in Atlanta.

Food was amazing, service was excellent, dessert was delish. Cocktails were mainly whiskey/bourbon/gin-and for me, this was the only less than positive part of the dining experience. Fyi-There was a good wine list if you're wanting an alternative. :)

Excellent fried chicken! Waiter said it was probably the best around, and I would have to agree. Also loved the cornbread and mashed potatoes. We ate outside on the patio as inside was a bit noisy for us. It did get rather warm outside (mid-June around 8:00 p.m.). Excellent cocktails, especially the "Peach Next Door." Glad we made reservations, as there was a one hour wait for walk-ins. Walked to the restaurant from our hotel. Area felt safe for late evening walking.

I visit Atlanta two or three times a year but have never eaten at South City before. After having lunch there this past Saturday I plan on making it a "must go" place for all my future trips to midtown Atlanta.
Our server was terrific ...knew everything about the menu, the neighborhood and loved working at South City!
