We enjoyed the food and the service, but were charged a 20% add on fee for the house at the end of the night that we were not made aware of upfront. So we had to pay the 20% add on for the house and then were told any tip for the service had to be extra, so in order to leave the waitress 20% we basically ended up being charged 40% in house money and gratuity on top of our bill. Our $86 date night cost us around $130 after the additional charges. I just wish we were made aware upfront of the 20% being adding to the bill for house money and not surprised at the end of the night. Had we known upfront we probably would have canceled our reservation and had dinner somewhere else versus paying all the added fees.

They did a great job helping us dine out even during COVID. Gave us the option to use a sanitized menu, or we could pull it up on their website. Also had a great way to pay at the end that didn't have servers handling credit cards. A delicious first time dining back out!

Birthday and in Atlanta for cousin’s wedding. Hadn’t eaten here since I left Atlanta in 2006. Everything was delicious. Waiter friendly and attentive and everyone was masked and delivered with gloves. Fabulous. Highly recommend. Be sure to get the fried green tomatoes. Mercy!

Our over all experience was pretty awesome. Our server (Anthony) really made us feel welcomed. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with any questions about the menu. The food was great! Everything was very well seasons and presented well... I wish the portions of the sides were a little large, but other than that everything was GREAT!

Glad that this neighborhood constant has reopened for table service. Felt very safe with their extra steps to disinfect and distance appropriately. And... the fried chicken was as good as always!

Out waiter Manny was very pleasant and explained some of the menu items in detail. The manager spent time talking with my friend and I about his restaurants plan during the Coronavirus situation we as a country are facing. Very concerned about continuing to provide food service in a healthy environment.

I dined at South City Kitchen with two colleagues while in Atlanta on business. It was great! I had the she-crab soup and shrimp and grits, and both were delicious. One of my colleagues had the fried chicken and said it was very good as well. My other colleague is vegan and gluten-free and was very happy with his dinner. The service was friendly, professional, and attentive, without being overbearing. I would definitely recommend South City Kitchen!
