We eat here every few months, usually when we are downtown to see a play at the Ark Rep. Tonight my wife had planned on the Pork Ribs but due to construction the smoker is down so she had the Grilled Ribeye with jojo potatoes and I had the striped bass with rice & succotash vinaigrette. My wife’s ribeye was a perfect medium rare, if a little cold ( I think it sit there while my fish was cooked) and she loved the potatoes. My Bass was perfect & the rice & succotash complemented it perfectly

The food is always delicious and that's what the 5 stars are for because their service is so slow! It takes about 5 minutes for a server to come over and about 10 more to get drinks and place your order. Then you wait forever for your food. Sorry, but that's too much time for lunch.

The servers are always so nice, but come on, guys! A little sense of urgency would go a long way.

We rolled into town on Wednesday evening and needed to stretch our legs. Our walk took us down Louisiana past the Governor's mansion, right on15th, left on main into the SoMa district of Little Rock. We happened upon a restaurant of the same name, South on Main. The hostess was able to seat us and announced live music this evening beginning @.8pm for a cover of $10 pp. We appreciated knowing this upfront. Tables and booths surrounded the center stage which had a backdrop of red velvet curtains. The atmosphere was comfortable with exposed red brick walls. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. We ordered two cocktails, an Earl Grey infused vodka and a bourbon Manhattan and started with Smoked Cauliflower with white BBQ sauce. I ordered the Squash Carbonara and my husband ordered the Roasted Chicken served with broccoli cheese and rice. We decided to stay for the show and ordered dessert which was maple bacon fritters. The cocktails, meal and dessert were enjoyable as well as the Singer/Songwriter entertainment. We would recommend this venue if you are in Little Rock.

South on Main is a gem. The food is great, the service is great and the atmosphere is warm and inviting, but that's not the best part. Owners Matt and Amy Bell, Chef, and husband & wife are the real gift. They not only serve great food, but they serve others and their community as well. Matt has given endless hours donating his time and energy to the non-profit "No Kid Hungry" believing that no kid in America should go hungry. Matt and Amy are also very clear on their stance against discrimination, for everyone who is respectful is welcome at their table. Unlike a lot of hectic restaurants, at South on Main you can relax, put your cell phone down and talk to the person sitting across from you. When the food, which is prepared when ordered arrives, it's beyond amazing. I HIGHLY encourage you to check them out. Your taste-buds will thank you and your faith in humanity will be restored.
