There is nothing special about this restaurant. The decor is bland and boring with an unpleasant mildew odor in the bathrooms that wafts out into the lobby so that is the first impression one receives upon entering this establishment. The food is mediocre at best with most of the items tasting like they're from a can (i.e. the vegetables being... More

Lots of choices for almost everyone. Limited grilled and gluten free options. Large portions and great service.

Five people with no diet restrictions, three vegans, one vegetarian, one dairy free diner, and one gluten free diner want to eat dinner in a restaurant. Can they find a restaurant to accommodate everyone? Yes. However, finding something for everyone at Southern Family restaurant was challenging. Our server was very helpful and made several trips to the kitchen to ask... More

As its name implies, this is a good family restaurant. The food is very good and there are enough items on the menu to satisfy any family. They feature a good kids' and seniors' menu. The seafood I have had there is as good as the seafood at the ocean. Convenient parking. Highly recommended for a value-priced meal.

We usually go to Southern Family for seafood. They are well known by locals for their shrimp and flounder. My husband loves their scallops and grilled flounder. I enjoy their fried shrimp. The menu has a variety of choices.

While traveling through the area we stopped at this restaurant for dinner. Must be good as there were lots of cars in the parking lot, right? Well, the locals were right - it was VERY GOOD! The portions were huge - you could easily split an entree and both of you would walk away full. They have specials every day... More

I love the seafood dinner. Large portions and the baked potato is always perfect. Not too fond of the coleslaw.
