Dined at the bar. Bartender was friendly and engaging. Kentucky mule was tasty and well-poured. Disappointed they were out of shrimp (no shrimp & grits) but the chicken on mash with asparagus was very good. Nice inexpensive dinner.

We had lunch at South yesterday & were sorely disappointed. Before we could even look at our menus, our server, Summer, announced that there were no shrimp available for their shrimp & grits & no beef for the French dip sandwich. Bummer, the two items we wanted to try. And, especially bad considering shrimp & grits is a signature item for South. We debated leaving, but decided to try some small plates & appetizers.

The Brunswick stew was a tasty BBQ concoction made with traditional Brunswick stew ingredients right up until they threw in a bunch of BBQ sauce for the liquid portion of the stew. Tasty, but a far cry from the real thing. The fried green tomatoes were fine, a bit heavy with batter, but tasty. Again, the deviled eggs were fine, unexceptional. We also tried a side order of the duck fat tater tots - again tasty, but average. None of this would have mattered, except for the prices which were truly exorbitant for each item. Our server, Summer, was very nice & did her job well - no complaints there. However, between the lack of product on hand & grossly inflated prices, we won’t return.

Nice place for lunch. I had the Brunswick Stew and a Chicken Caeser Wrap, both very good. Lots of regional specialties on the menu. Good for groups.

South fare in Athens, Ga. home of the University of Georgia. So many choices in Athens but I highly recommend this Resturant. Bloody Mary to start with Deviled Eggs app. Hot iron skillet with tater Tots. Plus they serve my favorite hard to find IPA, The Green Flash from San Diego.

I had the fish. My husband had the pork chop. Both were delicious. We argued over who had the better meal. I did.
The deviled eggs with crab were excellent appetizers.
The service was slow but friendly.
