I have eaten here many times. It is usually very good. Service is always great. And they had outdoor seating to practice social distancing. This last time I went food was really not good at all. It was so bad that my salad was pretty anemic and the chicken was not cooked properly. Also, our cheeseburger came raw in the middle sent it back to be cooked and then it came back raw again. We just left after that. I know restaurants are challenged during this time but the food was just not edible.
I have always had a great experience when dinning here. The staff are always well mannered and attentive. Nancy always welcomes you with such great southern hospitality and the food is always on point. I would recommend this place to the world if I could.
Always a great experience; fantastic food and service. We love going to a place that makes you feel like a valued customer?
As always, the food and overall experience did not disappoint. Even with social distancing, our dining experience did not feel odd, as in some restaurants. Looking forward to a return visit soon!
The BLT was fantastic, everything else was OK. Biscuit was literally the size of your face! Cheddar grits had a weird after taste. Outside patio was spacious and comfortable, especially in this time of social distancing.
The venue is a ideal spot for families and friends to gather. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly. The food was pretty tasty. I ordered the special, the seafood platter which was hefty in portion. My fiance ordered the fish tacos in which he thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely be returning!
Great adaptation for social distancing and they haven't missed a beat on their incredible menu. Chef Justin rocks!
Incredible service and food. Always excellent dining
With fresh ingredients
Excellent neighborhood restaurant. Trout was amazing. Service always excellent.
Terrific lunch with three business friends. Sat on the great patio which is partially covered so no sun problems.
Food was excellent-Boss Plate-wedge salad and a burger grilled on the side. Great for low carb and big enough to fill up appetite
Salmon BLT was devoured quickly and was told it was delicious as was the grilled salmon salad.
We were greeted and thanked for coming in very nicely. Server was masked and usually attentive to refills of drinks ad condiments. A bit slow to bring the check but we were in no big rush.
Overall terrific experience
One of favorite neighborhood “go to” spots. A jewel right in our back yard!
They followed all covid-19 safety protocols. It was delicious and delightful to be there again.
There were only 7 diners in the first dining room. There were others on the enclosed porch and several on the patio. Service was perfect and the food was delicious. We will be back soon. A perfect lunch.
Had a great meal there with friends. Nice ambiance outside and the food was outstanding
Food is always good and the service is friendly and accommodating. Great neighborhood spot.
Hidden Gem in Fountain Oaks Shopping Center. Great food at incredible prices and they have taken care to follow all safety precautions and social distancing. Plus their fabulous patio is fabulous! Get out of the house and enjoy Southern Bistro in person!
Favorite spot !
It’s a place that we love to meet friends for dinner.
Nancy and Colman are always wonderful hosts. NEVER had anything but a great meal!
Southern Bistro is a neighborhood gem. My friends and I had the trout with different side all excellent! Delicious foods, excellent customer service and a friendly atmosphere. I always enjoy!
Food, service and ambience were all great! Great value also. Will definitely go again. Highly recommend
Always great food and friendly staff! We had the seafood platter and I had the clam chowder - all delish!
The drink and food selection on the menu was outstanding! We tried the deviled eggs, grouper and fried chicken. Fantastic flavor and unique preparation. The staff was friendly and efficient.
Friendly neighborhood restaurant, an old familiar.
The food is always delicious
Great dining experience with good southern food and great service.
Great food & service! Quite loud, however. Highly recommend Shawn for your server. Very nice & attentive.
A great place to bring friends and family for dinner.
Amazing as always!!!!
Nice neighborhood spot. Cozy and the salmon dish was very tasty and a healthy portion compared to some other restaurants. Enjoyed it!
Bad news: This newer place is still struggling with an identity that’s between one of Atlanta’s nicer restaurants (Horseradish Grill, Chops, Davio’s, etc.) and something like an Applebee’s or Chili’s.
Good news for the owners: The above would be easy to fix. First, stop the blaring “teeny bop top 40” music that plays in the dining room. Nice restaurants don’t do this. Second, keep the television in the bar area, but get rid of the ones in the dining room. Nice restaurants don’t have TV’s plastered in the dining room. Third, never tell customers who are seated during the last two hours of dinner hours that you “have run out of bread.” They make their bread onsite, and there’s no reason it can’t be prepared until the last customer is served. Bread is customarily brought out to every table.
The hard part of establishing a good restaurant has been done here: good food from a robust menu and excellent drinks from the bar that are all on par with Atlanta’s nicest restaurants. They just need to stop making their customers feel like they’re dining inside an Applebee’s.
Taking care of the big things keeps a new restaurant open for a few years. Taking care of the big things and the little things are what allow restaurants to flourish for many years.
If you are looking for a great place to have delicious food and take your pup along, look no further! Dogs are welcomed and pampered on the patio here ! Friendly and welcoming staff, delicious food . We had the fried green tomatoes and shrimp n grits! Our beagle had the grilled chicken . If you prefer not to dine with animals , no worries! You can enjoy your fabulous meal with humans only at a cozy table inside .
Good was great, but salad and entree hit the table at the same time so by the time we had our salads entree no longer hot.
Booked this place for Valentines Day dinner and had never been here before. The pictures looked like it maybe a charming little restaurant for a date night. We arrived and the staff was friendly and we were seated immediately. We were at the table for about three minutes and had time to take in the ambience of kids jumping around and the chaotic atmosphere. We simply got up and walked out and found a different place for our Valentines Day dinner.
This restaurant feels like a place you’d go for breakfast and a fast sit down lunch. The menus are in a plastic sleeve that is typical of a fast sit down restaurant. The place is chaotic like a Waffle House. The food on the tables next to us looked like upscale fast food on a plate instead of a tray. The location is in the Kroger grocery store parking lot. The interior lighting at dinner time was very bright and not cozy.
If you are going on a date night for dinner we suggest you look for a different place. If you want to bring the whole family out to dinner and not have anyone care that your kids are running around the table then this is a great place for you.
Fantastic dinner!!! Chef Justin NEVER disappoints!!! Staff was courteous and very attentive!!! We love this place!!!
We were seated in a side room which made for a nice quiet dining experience where conversation was easy. All three of us had the special, which was crab cakes, and they were great. Service was very good as well and I feel sure we’ll be going back again soon.
Alan. Our waiter is such a nice guy. Surely to put a smile on your face. His suggestion of the Brussels Sprouts were delicious. Great food always!.
We just love this place ! Great drinks, food and service.
The best pound cake around . Whew!!!
Nice place to have lunch whether it be business or personal. Food is good & our server was GREAT!!
