The people working here are lovely and welcoming. Couldn't ask for better service. The food is an interesting take on southern cuisine (I grew up in Alabama so know it in my genes). Great vegetables--the collards and succotash were both superb. However, the duck starter...More

I loved everything - the service, food, atmosphere... but the fried chicken was to die for. Out of this world good. Southern food at its best. Bbq shrimp were a hit too. Our party loved everything.

This is a classic place. We had a business luncheon for six. They had our reservation ready for us and were very prompt as some of the attendees that had limited time. Food was wonderful and service was attentive.

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.
