The food here is very good and diverse with specialty dishes. My only complaint is that it can be VERY loud.

Venison was flavorful as you would expect, and Pork Chop was thick but tender. Biscoits are a bit addictive, but not spectacular. Ambiances feels a bit fabricated, as they pack as many folks as possible into it. Overall, very good - but not great.

Southern food for the refined palette. Nice decor, great menu. Great atmosphere...we ate in the bar which wasn't as upscale (what we wanted). Wait staff was full of suggestions.

I don’t believe there is a private room. The restaurant is lively and can be loud.

Celebrating over 18 year as one of Atlanta's favorite restaurants, South City Kitchen Midtown specializes in contemporary Southern cuisine with a sophisticated twist. Combining the energy of Atlanta with the warmth of a Southern home, the restaurant is nestled in an updated, historic bungalow on the city's famous Crescent Avenue. Dine on local Southern favorites such as shrimp and grits, buttermilk fried chicken, she-crab soup, fried green tomatoes and banana pudding while enjoying the view of our exhibition kitchen or the city skyline on one of the best patios in the city. This truly is dining the way the new South intended.
