I have been going there for about 3 years, I have never had a bad meal at SCK. You must try the fried green tomatos. Pros: Great food


Be warned - This Vinings location has horrible service. I went for Sunday brunch and it took 2 hours. No one even acknowledged us sitting at the bar for 15 minutes. Not only did t...

Great for lunch/brunch 9/26/2011

Love the stone-ground corn muffins. more

Two Thumbs Up 3/26/2010

South City kitchen puts a nice twist to Southern cooking. The service is excellent and interestingly enough the atmosphere is great for a date or for family dining. They have been exceptionally nice on dates with just my husband and I or when I've gone with the family. Pros: Great Food & Service Cons: Pulled Pork more

Another great evening at SCKV 6/22/2009

Went for a wine tasting event on Tuesday night and stayed for dinner. Hands down, one of the best, well-organized events I've been to! A local wine shop provided the tasting and SCK provided some of their signature appetizers! Can't resist those goat cheese fritters!! Had the pappardelle for dinner which was excellent! I had never had it before, a great mix of veggies and pasta. Even though the food was wonderful, I would have to say the most memorable part of the evening was the service. From the waiters serving the event to our waitress for dinner, the service was top notch! They didn't miss a beat and were very friendly! That always makes a difference. Ask for Jennifer!! Pros: GREAT Service! Cons: Very hot! (Not the restaurant's fault though!) more

Great Place for After Work Drinks and Dinner 6/19/2009

This is a great place to grab drinks after work and a relaxed atmosphere for dinner. Some of best things that they have to offer are their weekly menu specials and special events. A friend and I recently attended a really great wine tasting event here on June 23. For only $15 you could taste 40 different wines and could even place an order that day and receive a discount on your purchase. South City Kitchen even served some of their signature appetizers during the event and turned out to be a lot of fun. Plus - if you stayed for dinner, you received 15% off of your check. It was a great deal all around. Pros: Great location, atmosphere, wine list and menu more

You've got to try the fried chicken 5/14/2009

I had heard great things about their fried chicken and was not disappointed. It's the best! It's rare that a meal lives up to the hype but this surely did. more

Good Food, Atmosphere and Service Lacking 5/4/2009

Although we enjoyed the food on two visits to South City Kitchen (although the second time my vegetables were a little cold and sort of underwhelming), the first time our service was a huge disappointment. The waiter disappeared several times for long stretches, and then when he did show up he was dismissive, but the management did come talk to us and they were very understanding and tried their best to make things right (and we appreciated that they wrapped up a lovely dessert for us). The second time we went the place felt loud and crowded, with kids running around in the aisles and a table full of people who were clearly drunk shouting to one another and complaining about their orders. Obviously it's not the restaurant's fault if the clientele is obnoxious, but the memory of that experience has made us a little reluctant to return. more

Amazing Brunch 3/10/2009

It is very difficult to find a place that both my husband and myself can agree on. The South City Kitchen fits that bill. They're menu is widely varied, and I've never had a bad meal there! Also a great place to take your in-laws . . . . more

Superb Fried Chicken 2/15/2009

We were told this place has the best fried chicken, my husband who is a bit of a fried chicken expert had to try it out. He and I both think that this place had really good buttermilk fried chicken, really crispy. more

Decent Brunch 2/8/2009

We came to SCK for Brunch on a Sunday. The biscuits and cornbread Pros: Good Service, Brunch Menu, Romantic Cons: Can be a bit pricey more

Great Brunch! Great atmosphere! 11/9/2008

My wife and I can't give it 5 stars this time as we ordered a pretty simple brunch. The atmosphere was great. We were promptly greeted and our waiter Andrew was friendly, attentive, and by attentive, I mean that he kept an eye on us, took care of us and did it without checking in every 5 seconds. The Fried Green Tomatoes were awesome. The biscuits were soft, warm and not all caked up with flour. The corn muffins glorious. The pancakes had subtle, but real flavor, a joy! Wifey had the "Housemade Granola" (an appetizer but she had it as her brunch) and loved it. The fresh fruit it came with was amazing (I poached). Good orange juice too. A broad range of clientele - young urban types with their infants, my wife and I (not-hispanic hispanic people), african americans, and older white folks too. Pros: Good food, good atmosphere. Could be romantic. Good for well behaved kids. Cons: None. more

Great Service 2/19/2008

i dont know what the people below are talking about, but my service was the best in the city. The food, they have a new chef, is impeachable. In fact the pork chop may be the best I have ever eaten. My server Kevin was fantastic and you should ask for him every time you come in. Not to mention Charlie at the bar may be the best bartender in the city. more

Great atmosphere, great food! 11/2/2007

I am new in the area and wanted to find a good restaurant with a hip atmosphere. South City Kitchen was it!! I am from the South, so I love the Southern flare on the food!! It was delicious and we had prompt seating, great service and fabulous food!! I am going again this weekend! It is a great place for a date or a nice dinner with friends or family! Pros: Cornbread and Biscuits, shrimp and scallops in smoked garlic gravy! more

Wonderful Food, Terrible Service 9/10/2007

I love to go to South City Kitchen for the ambiance and the food. The service ,however, is always terrible and I knew that going in so I was prepared.I was prepared when the waiter disappeared for 45 minutes after he served our entree.I was prepared when he then suddenly appeared and tried to rush us through our meal.I was not prepared however for him to throw our check on the table and storm off,as if to say , "Finally, I get to clean this table off and go home!" He had other guests at the bar however, so we were not his final guests. For entrees, we ordered the trout and the chicken and dumplings and they were divine,as the food here always is. We enjoyed our meal while looking out over the twinkling patio lights to the charming square and fountain outside. And we were prepared for the snubbing of the servers so that really didn't really ruin the meal.Just come to South City Kitchen ready to be treated BADLY, but I hope you will be treated with greater respect than we were that night.However, if you are into food and atmosphere,this place is for you! Pros: Food and Atmosphere Cons: Service more

Slow City Kitchen - ridiculous 4/1/2007

Be warned - This Vinings location has horrible service. I went for Sunday brunch and it took 2 hours. No one even acknowledged us sitting at the bar for 15 minutes. Not only did they have empty tabletops and still had a long wait, every employee seemed to just stroll through the restaurant, even the cooks were moving slow. There was no sense of urgency or desire to please customers. It was ridiculous. I love the Midtown location but will never go back to the Vinings one. We even expressed our concerns to the manager who didn't seem to care. The only positive note is that the Fried Green Tomatoes are delicious. But definitely don't waste your time at this place! I'll be going back to Houston's where service is impeccable and quick. Pros: Fried Green Tomatoes Cons: Horrible service, very SLOW more

Great Place for a Holiday Party! 12/21/2006

We recently had our Holiday Party at the South City Kitchen in Vinings. We had met with Kelly (the events coordinator) a few months prior to the party. She was such a pleasure to work with. We had discussed our likes and dislikes and she really took over from there. more

Off to a slow start 6/17/2006

This is a "far cry" from its cozy, sister location in Midtown with excellent wait staff. Service was a bit slow even though it wasn't busy. Alert management..obnoxious waitress on board. Beef-up your customer service. Food was tasty (salmon with basmati rice and chow chow and fried chicken with mashed potatoes). Try a glass of Quinta port after your meal with raspberry sorbet for dessert. Pros: Parking Cons: Watch the salt content more

Great Place 5/15/2006

Good food, great atmosphere... what more could you want? Try the chicken livers and the shrimp corn dogs.. wonderful. Great Fried Chicken and brisket all is good except the speed of service. Appetizers are fast but entree takes a very long time.. but worth the wait. Good addition in a neighborhood that needed a great restaurant. Try brunch also crab hash is delectable! Pros: Great food, good service, Open late Cons: food is slow more
