Food was good. I had brisket grilled cheeses and my boyfriend had ribs with red beans/rice and spinach. However the red beans and rice was not good.

It was excellent. Everything was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Our food came promptly and we enjoyed a very special beat and brussels sprouts salad with Cajun chicken, a Caesar salad, and my husband and I split a hamburger. Everything was delicious and the french fries that accompanied the hamburger or out of this world! We will definitely go back again!It is only two blocks off of the Schuylkill bicycle path. The outdoor deck in the back it’s very inviting.

We had brunch at the restaurant. The food was reminiscent of brunches we had when we lived in GA & SC. Everything we had was wonderful. Can’t wait to try their dinners!

The server was very nice but extremely slow and not always responsive to requests. Like bringing utensils in between courses, even when we asked.

We had a table for two, which was jammed in between two other tables, and other tables that arrived after us received their food before us.

We sat upstairs along the staircase and the space was very tight and uncomfortable. My dining companion and I are small and slender in stature too. The fried green tomatoes and gumbo appetizers were great but the entrees were served cold. The jambalaya had too much tomato sauce making it very runny. Appetizers amazing but entrees a huge disappointment. I would go back but order something not as complicated .

Had a reservation. Ordered appetizers and drinks and they weren’t brought to our table. We left after 45 minutes.

Also, 2nd floor table in the corner is freezing.

The service was incredibly slow. While I understand it was Valentine’s Day, it took probably 20 min for us to get our drinks. Our reservation began at 8:15pm and even after it started to clear out, the server was still very slow in her response. She forgot to bring several things and had to be reminded. The food was great, and I will come back again, but hoping for better service next time.

It was a nice place. Our one complaint was the food was armpit warm, not hot. The hottest item was the cheese grits, which were very good. Everything tasted okay, but it would have been better if it was warmer.

My wife and I went here for our valentines dinner the night before Valentine’s Day. I made reservations ahead of time but it looked like we could have walked in and got seated right away without a reservation. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive and nice. It’s a good place to go for upscale dining right in the heart of conshy. We were also just here for the conshy grilled cheese bender and they by far had the best grilled cheese out of all the restaurants that participated in the event. Highly recommended!

Our waitress (I didn’t catch her name— it may have been something like Ray?— but it was Saturday night around 9 and she was wearing a cute blue twisted headband) was SO AMAZING WITH ALLERGIES! The food was delicious and different from other restaurants in the area. They have tons of special events and interesting specials. We’ll definitely be back.

Walking into the place, it was warm and cozy. After we were seated, we were given the eating option which were many, we ordered the sausage poppers, fried chicken and crab cakes.. it was delicious. We have been doing the king of Prussia branded eateries since moving here and were pleased to find a place that was inviting and had great food!

Absolutely incredible meal! Highly recommend for group dinners, dates, and they have quizzo on Wednesday nights. I have been twice in the past month and will definitely keep going back in the future! Recommend the fried chicken to share, chicken sandwich, Mac and cheese, and cheesesteak egg rolls. Thank you, Southern Cross Kitchen, for a wonderful meal!

My wife and I have been to Southern Cross several times and it has never disappointed. The food is great and is served in large portions so you can have the leftovers the following day. Service has always been good, a little slow this time but not bad. Also usually one of the owners will stop by your table to check to make sure everything is OK. We took my sister and brother in law this time and they really enjoyed it. I'll be going back again.
