Description: 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.

“Food and service were wonderful; drinks overpriced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

I had lunch at South City Kitchen before a play and enjoyed everything about the restaurant. The service was fast and attentive without being overbearing. We had the fried green tomatoes to start, which were delicious. All the food was wonderful and the serving size was about perfect. The food was fairly priced, but I felt the drinks were high even for Atlanta.

“Modern Southern, Old Time Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

South City Kitchen is excellent contemporary Southern cuisine and really friendly service. A reservation is a must when dining here because it is very popular. If you don't have a reservation, service at the counter is an option and service is fast and friendly, plus you get to watch the kitchen work like a well oiled machine.
The menu is a bit tough to get through, only because everything looks so good.
Anyone visiting Atlanta should spend at least one night at South City Kitchen.

“Best Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

The food is the best! We particularly enjoyed the pork belly, fried green tomatoes and the fried chicken. The service was outstanding and we encouraged others to go as well. You won't be disappointed.
