South City Kitchen Midtown Ratings and Reviews
Definitely a popular evening dining spot and highly recommend making reservation through open table. My business team was seated on the second floor away from the bar scene yet still quite loud and lively. The food was very tasty with fresh makeovers of Southern favorites. Portions were larger than expected. Would return if there was another business trip in town.
My partner and I needed to catch up with another couple and we chose South City Kitchen for brunch.
I had the fried green tomatoes with goat cheese and the lump crab cake hash. Both were excellent. Cooked perfectly, presentation, and very flavorful.
Service was excellent as well.
Everyone had an excellent meal. I highly recommend them for brunch.
Outstanding food and service but noise level too loud for a conversation (even at 6:30!) and the chairs are very uncomfortable. The Southern menu is interesting and the location is close to the Woodruff Arts Center, so it is convenient before a show. The receptionist tried hard to get us a quiet table, and it was quieter than most, but still too loud to chat comfortably. The chairs have hard wooden seats and would be appropriate in an elementary school classroom. It seems this place does not encouraged relaxed dining and does not want patrons to linger! Too bad, because the food and service would otherwise bring us back often.
I went to celebrate one of my very good friend's graduation. She obtained her Doctorate. She is an inspiration to all around her. Way to go Doctor Melissa Ford😘🎉. The atmosphere at SCK was absolutely amazing and the food "Tre magnifique" Can't wait for the next time.
We were referred to South City Kitchen Atlanta by a local resident. What a fantastic neighborhood gem. We had the Fried Green Tomatoes, She Crab soup, their famous Fried Chicken and the Lamb Shank followed by the Mango Sorbet for dessert. This restaurant is a must for all foodies!
I made a reservation since we had a show to attend and didn't want to run behind schedule. We were seated as soon as we arrived. We were there for Sunday brunch and the food was fantastic and they had a great selection to choose from. Great service as well!
Our waitress Alyssa was very personable and friendly. It was our first time there and she did an excellent job at providing us with recommendations from the wine to the entrée. She was descriptive, but brief. She made sure we were taken care of and content. We ordered the duck confit for appetizer. My husband ordered the Rabbit Pasta (he has never tried rabbit) it was exceptional. I ordered their Mountain Springer chicken, of which surely did not disappoint. I ordered their vanilla bean cheesecake with cherry compote... it was amazing. Their chocolate layered cake was a little dry, but not too rich. I highly recommend this restaurant and our waitress Alyssa.
This was my Birthday 🎉 Brunch. It was my first time and I will certainly be back. I had the Chicken, greens and red potatoes. The small basket of bread and peach jam was yummy. The curry sweet potato soup was a perfect balance too. The Bellini was not my favorite but I didn't complain. Next time I'll try the mimosa. Overall it was a great experience. Reasonable price point, location and parking.
With a group of 12 from all over the US for training. Took 2 locals that are business colleagues out to dinner. 2 reservations; 1 for 8 and 1 for 4, and the hostess seated us next to each other. Food was great and so was the service. Will be back in April!
Thanks for a great experience.
Food was good-ish. I feel like the food here used to be better. I remember the first time I went here, I left raving about the fried chicken and macaroni-and-cheese. This time, the fried chicken was ok and the mac-n-cheese was missing from the menu :(. The service was not good at all, it was a Sunday night with a decent crowd, not crowded by any means and the server was still quite slow. Food was nothing to write home about, but it's not a bad meal.
Great place to eat. I've had the chicken and the shrimp and grits. Both were amazing. It's a very cozy spot, kinda small. Tables are close together, but they do a good job of not getting other tables too close to where it feels like you are dining with strangers. Bar selection was great, craft cocktails are good. Wish they had valet parking, but there is a garage across the street that is easy to park in. I would definitely return.
