    Excellent fried chicken. Green tomatoes with goat cheese were ok. Fantastic brisket sandwich. Chicken & waffles only available for brunch. Friendly staff and a interesting wine menu.

    A great find in Atlanta's midtown neighborhood. Pictured is their signature BBQ Shrimp appetizer. Deelish. I had fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes and collard greens. Fried green tomatoes.

    Flavorful fare! Pretty much everything we had was amazing! Chicken is a must. So is a peach salad. And oysters! And Rose! And banana cream brûlée. And....

    Ok, so chicken and waffles are not southern (seriously, look it up!), but that doesn’t mean we haven’t welcomed it into the fold and perfected it! After all, fried chicken is a southern staple. Read more

    By far the best chicken and waffles in the city. The chicken is perfectly fried and seasoned and the waffle is heavenly. They can both stand on their own, but together...pure food magic.

    Food was good and they did a great job of accommodating our large group, all of whom had bags (we were on our way to the airport) which they stored for us. Great experience all around.

    The trending taste this week is the classic Southern favorite, fried green tomatoes. What better way to experience this taste than with some goat cheese at one of your favorites, South City Kitchen.

    The best service ever. My husband was not thrilled with the waitress's recommendation and she brought him his second choice entree! Fried Green tomatoes were awesome as well as the shrimp n grits!

    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu in this piece! Chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits and the crab cakes -- it's all good! The speciality drinks are the bomb as well! Nice spot!

    Share a set of the southern plates - don't miss the pulled pork, fried green tomatoes, chicken, chop and rabbit pasta! That order made a perfect dinner for 3-4.

    Fun fact: I once sat and ate with a famous Chicago Bulls player here and didn't even realize what a big shot he is until I left. We both got the buttermilk fried chicken!

    The pan roasted duck breast with red quinoa, Tuscan kale, and blood orange jus was amazing. If you have never tried duck, try this!

    For brunch, we love the cheddar scrambled eggs, stone-ground grits, and applewood smoked bacon and for dinner, the buttermilk fried chicken is where it's at.

    Fantastic experience tonight - every dish and drink delicious, gracious, not too cloying service. I rec the smoked pork chopped, fried chicken, trout, pineapple upside down cake.

    This was really good! A little pricey. But pretty good! I got the Trout. It had stuff that I never knew I would like, but it was pretty tasty!

    Areas of the restaurant are a little dark if you are one of those people who prefer to see what you are eating, but don't worry, they provide pen lights!

    Some of the best southern-inspired fried chicken on the planet. Pork belly and fried green tomatoes are superb starters. Great service all around.

    Go to the original one on Crescent. Classic for 20+ years--good dinners but brunch is the best. Nice for a family event.

    Do not miss a chance at the fried chicken. Oh. My. God. Also, the cornbread with fresh butter is EVERYTHING. Leave your diet at the door and indulge a little; it's worth it!

    Shrimp and grits were really good. Would recommend brunch here and taking a 1st or 2nd look at the drink menu. Really great drinks to pair with your meal.
