We have eaten here for breakfast and lunch. I have enjoyed each experience. The luncheon menu is varied and the lunch special is good...lots of food (almost enough to split with someone). The BLT sandwich is also a great choice.

Enjoyed our recent experience at Southern Spice. We had a variety of items ordered at our table and everyone really enjoyed their food. Service was prompt and courteous and the restaurant was clean. Prices were very good as well. Can't really ask for much more!

Got food fairly quickly. I ordered the oyster plate, and the menu states you receive "10-12" oysters--I got 9 but it was not a deal breaker. They were small but flavored fine. I also ordered the stuffed shrimp appetizer. They were over seasoned for my...More

I had the daily special that included pork roast with rice and gravy, yams, beans, cornbread and chocolate cake with chocolate icing. I have eaten here many times and it has never disappointed me. Great service in addition to great food.
