SOS Bar & Bites
Celebrated my Mom's birthday. Party of 7 on a Saturday Night. It wasn't packed but that contributed to our fantastic experience. SN: Parking fills up quick as Tupelo Honey anf The Manchester are in the same location. Consider arriving early, street parking, light rail or Lyft. The favorite drink of the night was the rose slushie ( $9) - good portion size and tasted amazing. The food was fantastic, cooked well, tasted amazing. Altogether we had lobster corn dogs (more like fried lobster on a stick still very very good, sauce is spicy!), truffle fried, crab cakes, herb chicken and lobster mac & cheese, SOS burger, Chicken and Waffles, wedge salad, and shrimp and grits ( the honey adds great flavor). No one had a complaint about any of the food and our group can be picky. We all agreed the portion sizes were more than adequate. I personally had the Chicken and Waffles and let me tell you that chicken was some of the best fried chicken I've had. So tender, juicy, seasoned evenly. I had no issues cutting through the chicken either. My faves and suggestions to try: Rose slushie drink Lobster Corn Dog Chicken and Waffles. The added bonus that fulfilled the night is there was karaoke. I'm not sure if it was advertised but it was fun and we actually ended up spending the rest of night there singing and cheering on the other patrons. The karaoke MC encouraged everyone to sing and even sang a few songs himself. He interacted with everyone in the restaurant all night and I'm sure even after we left. They also have huge screens playing videos from all eras and genres . It was a fantastic experience and we will be celebrating more birthdays here. Definitely recommend and definitely will be back.
Overpriced and not worth it. I had very bland & not crispy fried chicken. I ordered the dark meat with honey dusting & barely tasted any seasoning & the skin was thin. The collards were good but fried chicken without crisp or flavor is a no go. Orange juice was a cheap grocery store brand and was $3.50 for a single cup! They also keep the salt for drinks exposed around the bar where people eat. Doesnt seem hygienic or maybe Ive never seen that before. Spit from people talking & eating easily goes there. Service was also slow at the bar.
Food was well prepared and presented. Staff is extremely friendly. I've added them to my top 10 favorite places to eat
This place is new, so don't let the lack of reviews deter you from going! I highly recommend that you give it a try - We loved it! My husband and I stopped in late on a Monday night for dinner and drinks. They have a diverse menu which is nice. The avocado caprese salad was deliciously fresh and the buffalo wings are probably the best we've had in the area. The interior of the restaurant looks sharp with a big bar, high top tables, tufted leather seat back booths, tons of big screen TVs and a stage with a DJ stand. I'm interested to see what kind of events they'll host in the future. I'd say it's a great place for dinner or drinks with friends, date night, and even to catch sporting events on TV. The staff was also really pleasant and service was great. I heard about this place from a radio advertisement before their grand opening, and I'm glad we tried them. I don't work here, and I don't know anyone who works here. But I do live nearby and will be returning! Next time I go, I'll take photos. Give this place a try!
We ate dinner here at 8pm on a Friday evening. Not a single other person was in the restaurant or came in to eat while we were there. Our server was very kind and we received good service. Once seated we were notified that several menu items were no longer available (pork chop, soup, and several side items). The vibe was very cool, but again it was just so bizarre that there was no one else in the restaurant at that time on a Friday evening. The wedge salad, salmon, and truffle fries were good. The lobster mac and cheese was inedible. There was a sour quality to it. We sent it back once and were told that the cream used was spoiled and new orders were being made. However, the new orders of the dish tasted the exact same so it must be their particular recipe. The server was very gracious and did comp the sides. We were very hopeful about this restaurant, but unfortunately it was not one that we would recommend.
