  • Alexis M.Awesome food. Great mimosa. Awful latte. Served cold. Asked for it to be remade. Served cold again. Probably just made by a machine. Service was terrible. Even when there were hardly any customers.

    55555 by Rene C

  • Amol U.Great lunch specials.

  • Frazier JCame for brunch - Bloody Mary and blood orange mimosas were awesome. Get chicken and waffles with Nashville hot chicken - you're welcome. Shrimp and grits-possibly the most underrated menu option.

    55555 by Frazier J

  • greg HBeef brisket, steak and biscuits

    55555 by greg H

    33333 by John MaGuirk

  • Andre M.Hot chicken salad is the bomb. Lunch prices aren't too bad.

    55555 by Andre M.

  • Paul BirzaGreat burger for the price. The rest of the menu seems overpriced for what you get.

    33333 by Paul Birza

    55555 by Tyler R.

  • Design*SpongeCulinary meets comfort at The Southern Steak & Oyster Bar. Of course their namesake dishes are delicious, but I’m a big fan of their weekend brunch and fried chicken and waffle.

    55555 by Design*Sponge

    55555 by Maria Necci

    55555 by Samantha M.

  • N. A.If you order anything other than the pick-your-own-size or the bone-in ribeye, you're making a HUGE mistake. This place is exactly what they call themselves; steak & oysters...that's what you order.

    33333 by N. A.

  • Brian C.The Chicken and Waffles during brunch is AMAZING! My first experience eating it, and I haven't been able to stop salivating each time I think about it.

    55555 by Brian C.

    55555 by Chris L.

  • Rebecca S.Definitely try the oysters and the blackberry moonshine cocktail. Great service and atmosphere.

    55555 by Rebecca S.

    55555 by Christine T.

  • Kim H.Gorgeous, sexy place 💕👍

    55555 by Kim H.

    33333 by Kyle B.

  • Simon T.Steak biscuits are filling. Service at the bar was excellent (on a Sat. night). Crab cakes were rich.

    55555 by Simon T.

  • 💃Twirly J.Make reservation. Lana was a fantastic server, extremely attentive. Sangria is delish. Brunch- Steak & Biscuit Benedict is too buttery, pass on it. Oysters r great. Cuban was perfection. Live music!

  • Varun S.You can order most things a la carte. Get the jalapeño bacon (and dip it in honey).

    55555 by Varun S.

  • Jon D.Brad may be the greatest bartender ever, ask for the Vinto Verde wine he pairs with oysters.

    55555 by Jon D.

  • Laura BI only checked in to announce how terrible the service is. Waited 45 mins for our reserved table, bread came with the entrees, drinks took forever, couldn't split checks. Even Applebee's can do that.

    11111 by Laura B

  • Kathryn CThis place is absolutely terrible. The service is horrendous and the food is mediocre, good luck enjoying yourself here...

  • Nancy V.The Anytime Menu worked for me!

    33333 by Nancy V.
