I left full and satisfied! We had the house made biscuits with strawberry key lime jam. It was so good. We had deviled eggs which were a great start to our meal. I had the diver scallops which were seasoned perfectly and melted in your mouth and we tried the Korean fried chicken. The flavor was spot on. Reminded me of my time in South Korea. We ended our meal with the bourbon banana pudding which was excellent and the strawberry bread pudding. Overall an excellent meal! We will definitely be back!

Enjoyed 2 appetizers at the bar and I have very high praise for the pork biscuits and the cauliflower bites ( slightly spicy). Dinner was amazing - fresh, unique, and flavorful!

Server and food was great, but the initial greeting and handling of party ruined the experience. I understand staffing and service industry challenges, but kindness goes along way.

This restaurant doesn’t disappoint. We love the southern cuisine. Our waitress was phenomenal and took good care of us and recommended a really yummy cab. I would give this restaurant 5 stars if not for 3 things. First, we were seated near the door, and each time waitstaff came through a “Big Bang” resounded. Also the $17 cheese board is really skimpy. Lastly, for $8, diners expect more than 3 thinly sliced green tomatoes on the side dish.

I was not disappointed. The food was amazing and the service was great. Everyone had a wow with the table side smoked old fashioneds. Definitely would recommend!

Diverse selections provided enough options for slightly picky kids. Nice wine selection included some special bottles. The huge window into the kitchen provides a first class viewing opportunity. Staff were ever so slightly catty (because of the two well -behaved kids in tow?) but warmed as the meal progressed. Overal, proof there is really great southern food and Orlando has some intriguing choices downtown. It’s not all Olive Garden! Hooray!

It’s my first time at SoCo but it definitely won’t be my last. Mama got the Salmon Potato Cakes and I got the Southern Style Benedict, which was a sinful stack of fried green tomatoes, country ham, collard greens and creole hollandaise. We also sampled the French toast cause like Auntie Tab says, that’s our business. The French toast was a little too sweet for my liking and the deviled eggs were too mustardy. Other than that, each component was well seasoned and assembled just as well. Another win for the South - the best of all the geographical (and culinary) directions. Well done, SoCo!

The biscuits, deviled eggs, bagels with salmon, and shrimp and grits were all delicious! We will return sometime for the fried green tomatoes.

Food was good too, the chef forgot our fried green tomatoes on our Benedict’s and delivered them to us still in the pan. I understand the policy but I would like to suggest that even if you added a spilt plate fee so that I could do bottomless while my mom didn’t instead of getting two meals. We just wanted to spilt an entree and a small plate. We both don’t eat big meals and it was just kind of sad to order two full entrees for half of each dish to be tossed in the trash. We will most definitely be back but again disappointing that there was no other option for us to spilt a meal to save of food waste especially when she wasn’t doing bottomless. Just a suggestion but y’all are great!

The server super nice finally showed up and took our drink orders, 10 minutes later had come back after taking our drink orders to bring back a drink menu. We told her we still wanted what we ordered...another 8 minutes later our drinks showed...We had two younger kids, she did try to take our order a few times but would disappear for 10-15 minutes between stopping by our table. The kids took a bit to make a decision and we asked her to come back and give them a little more time to decide. She had no problem and disappeared to the other side of the restaurant...at this point, it's 6:45 my drink is empty and we have not ordered any food. The thought of paying for the drinks and just heading out crossed my mind. But no, I really wanted to try a few things on the menu and the kids had finally decided. So we see her, stops at a neighboring table and then disappeared again....😱 Finally a few minutes pass and she comes back apologizing and takes our order. 🙌 Received my second drink around 6:55, food came after 7:15. The kids both loved the Mac and Cheese and Dumplings, but the food was not mind-blowing. I would have rather headed to the Ritz for a steak dinner. $200+ later I was not impressed with time management or the menu in general. By the way, I order the special Pot Pie. Asked the server if it was a chicken Pot pie. She let me know it was...the pie was Mushroom based, with no chicken that I could find.

Very nice staff. You really want to like the place but the service is spotty and inattentive. Perhaps it's best enjoyed at off hours. In prime dining hours I'd look elsewhere.

A week ago we returned and had a wonderful experience. Food was excellent and service was very good. A week later we returned with high hopes of another great dinning adventure, but only to be very disappointed. The Pork Belly biscuits was mediocre at best over dressed with a mainstream steak sauce. The “special” chicken pot pie was a comedic display of WTF is this!! Food removed from the table before I could eat it. A full plate of uneaten food picked up and taken away. While my most resent experience was extremely unpleasant, I will be somewhat contradictory and return to what I had the first night (Korean Fried Chicken) as it was really good!!
