I dine at this restaurant whenever I visit Atlanta and the food is always delicious. I usually get the southern fried chicken with collards. The shrimp and grits are very good as well. Reservations are a must if you don't want to wait long. This place is always packed.

Went on a Sunday night ordered the meat board. Should of had one more piece of cheese on it. Also ordered the fried green tomatoes that was excellent. For dinner I had the fried chicken and it was very tasty. My boyfriend ordered the Duck it looked gross and unappetizing. It was a dark dish that looked like slop on... More

We've dined at SCKM several times over the years, and my companion had a strong jones for fried chicken, so we booked a reservation for a busy holiday night. We were seated right away but on the second floor where it was VERY loud. We asked if any other spot was available and they accommodated us downstairs closer to the... More

A group of us got reservations for dinner on a recommendation and glad we did. We got there 30 minutes early and they were able to seat us early. I had the beet salad and pork chop and loved both of them. Would def stop in again next time I'm in Atlanta.

We've been here several times during visits to Atlanta. The food and service here are always fantastic. On our most recent visit we enjoyed some cocktails, fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese, two salads, and geechee stew. Everything was delicious, along with the complimentary biscuits to start the meal. You can't miss at this restaurant. Two caveats: make a reservation, even... More

This fried chicken was unbelievable! It is boned and served on a bed of mashed potatoes and collard greens with a honey thyme jus...so tender and just delicious. The cocktails were excellent as well. I had the Peach Next Door and loved it. My daughter got the Crispy Pork Belly and we shared. Everything was delicious. We ate outside and... More

This place was fantastic, we called and made a reservation because we thought it might be crowded, and yiu should, it's not a big space. Our waiter was super nice and helpful, he recommended both the entrees we ordered and they were both great. We had some braised rabbit, and venison saltimboca. The rabbit was awesome. My husband enjoyed one... More

I'm not much of a meat eater but the crispiness of their chicken and the way they prepare it is scrumptious. So crunchy and yet so tender. To get this recipe would be a real keeper. Wine was great, ambiance, service was excellent too for our dinner party of four. Love sitting upstairs!

If you want to treat yourself to a nice lunch or dinner, this is a great place to try. Traditional southern comfort food offerings, with a bit of class. Our waiter was friendly and offered good suggestions, which we solicited, not the other way around (which I prefer). The fried chicken did not disappoint. I don't care for greens so... More

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.
