When it comes to new southern cuisine in Atlanta, South City Kitchen has championed it long before the Johnny-come-latelies. Favorites include their creative takes on fried chicken and fried green tomatoes.

Great service and fried chicken; anytime there are scallops on the menu I go for those as well!

What a Mecca for Southern Food !!! – My BF and I were headed to Atlanta for his training in Midtown. I had read about this place on the internet.

Being a Virginian with family in North and South Carolina, I am used to excellent Southern food and I was dying to try all the vegetables and side dishes eventhough I'm not a vegetarian.

I tried them all:

The Vegetable Plate with green beans, field peas, fried okra, creamy mac and cheese for 11.75.

(I'm used to "black-eyed peas." For me, field peas are something different and what I was served at SCK were black-eyed peas. They were great.)

And on a later visit:

collard greens 4

stone-ground grits 4

crispy Brussels sprouts 5

and green beans 4

Plus the complimentary biscuits and corn muffins were excellent accompanied with the butter and apple butter.

Everything was delicious. BF got the barbecue and thought that that was great as well.

I've never had grits as good as SCK's and the collards were out of this world. Ah... the grits... I can't go on enough about them.

GRITS: Guys (or Girls) Raised in The South

Yum... when I go back to Atlanta.... I'm heading back to South City Kitchen.

Good Eats in the City – I've been a fan of South City Kitchen since my date and I visited after my Senior Prom. (Yes, that long) Once a regular, I hadn't really dined there in sometime before last night... but I was pleased to know that the formula hadn't changed.

SCK consistently provides a wonderful dining experience. They continue a tradition of innovative food with simple, high quality ingredients. And while some may question certain dishes, you can always be certain you'll have a wholesome, well-prepared, elegantly presented meal served by one of the best waitstaffs in the city.

Favorites: Crab Cake appetizer

Jambayla

Fried Chicken (unbelieveably juicy)

Banana Pudding

(the biscuits and corn muffins are to die for, too)

I've been recommending South City Kitchen to family and friends for well over 10 years... and will continue to do so.

Decent Brunch – We came to SCK for Brunch on a Sunday. The biscuits and cornbread were great. They were perfectly shaped and cute, little bites. They also offer a variety of breakfast cocktails, Bellinis, etc. I ordered the Breakfast Plate which came with grits, two eggs any style, three pieces of bacon, and potatoes. It was around ten dollars and the portions were pretty well sized. The potatoes that come with the breakfast entrees are the most flavorful. The taste of the food was good, but not anything special that I crave to eat again immediately. It's a nice place to come with a significant other on a nice weekend morning/early day. However, if you are looking for breakfast/brunch fare of the same portion and perhaps same taste and quality, but want something more casual and affordable, J. Christopher's is right around the corner.

By the way, this is the Vinings location, I posted for the wrong location sorry!

A decent place. – I dined at this restaurant with my brother recently, and I must say that I was expecting more than this. I agree, the service was great, but everything beyond the appetizer seemd sub-par. I thought the service was great, but again, the food wasn't that great. My steak wasn't that great, but my brothers fried chicken and mash potatoes looked pretty good. I just don't have much to say other than if you want Southern "down home cookin" look somewhere else, especially if you are paying this much for a meal. Again, I don't think this place is horrible, but it isn't all that great for the price. I recommend finding someone who has lived in the South all of their life to cook a Southern meal i.e. Paula Dean. Blah, blah, blah, blah, you know what I am saying.

Great Dining Experience – My date and I went to South City Kitchen before seeing a show at the Alliance Theater. We were greeted at the door by a friendly host who took us immediately to our table. Our server quickly came to introduce herself and explained the menu for the evening. My dish was the Shrimp and grit and was just awesome. My date also enjoyed his meal as much. The manager of the restaurant came by to visit us to ensure that our dining experience was going well. I really liked the fact that everyone there was so professional and just as friendly. I highly recommend the South City Kitchen.

A fabulous experience – We visited SCK for dinner. For an appetizer we ordered the fried green tomatoes, which were the best we have had in Atlanta. For dinner we had Fried chicken with the Bourbon gravy and Chicken and Dumplings. Both dishes were fantastic!

The service and ambience were both terrific, very attentive waitstaff coupled with a lovely decor.

Defintely one of the finer establishments in Atlanta.

Good food. – I must say the chicken and dumplings is very good. Different from the traditional, but a nice twist.

The Crab Hash was ok. Service was attentive. We will go back. Its a good stop on the way to the symphony.

If you sit anywhere near the door, it will be cold. For some reason people seemed to stand in the door with it open.. Maybe they need to increase the size of the foyer or seat people faster.

The best food I have had in a while – South City Kitchen has the best food ever, we are quite discerning in our taste for food and this restaurant is by far, the most flavorful food we have had in a while! The salmon, to die for...the fried green tomatoes- not too oily, just perfect! And the white chocolate bread pudding was just right! Please, do trythis restaurant out, it has plenty of personality and lots of flavor to the food. The service was just right, not too overbearing but always there when you needed her. One of our best finds in midtown Atlanta.
