As I drove up to this place, I saw the large neon sign pointing the way. I knew that would be a good sign. Once inside, I could tell that the place of been in business for a long time due to the layout. The young lady that seated me informed me of the fried chicken special for that evening.... More

Food was prepared very well. Fried chicken was very good, but not the best I ever had. Fried oysters were very good and plenty on plate. Roast beef was very good. Nice size salads to start the meals. Would recommend this restaurant when in area.

We were looking around to grab a bite to eat, wanted something new so we tried this place. It was cozy inside and the waitress was very friendly. There are quite a few things on the menu and they offer specials. We tried the chicken fried steak and it was very good. I think you can't go wrong with whatever... More

Stumbled upon this place on the way north from vacation and happy we did. Had the Fried Catfish special and it was fantastic, also tried a sample of the peanut soup and have to say it's something I'd order the next time. Great food and great service add up to a great place to eat, will be stopping by again... More

Ordered the shrimp basket, chicken salad and buffalo chicken wrap. Was ok. Nothing special. Is a place to go if you do not want Mexican - Jalisco which is great. Reviewed Jalisco. Not a must eat place!

Excellent service, Great wait staff, Easy to get to, with plenty of parking. The food was so good, a little salty. Quaint Southern charm and highly recommended. Friendly neighborhood place where everyone goes for good food and to socialize. The prices were reasonable. Would return.

While fried chicken is their specialty I decided on the rib eye. It was the best rib eye I have eaten in a long time. No fancy seasoning...just a fresh cut of beef with baked potato and garden salad. When I go back I will try the chicken since so many people in the area raved about it. Staff is... More

A great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, set in the middle of New Market! Peanut soup and fried chicken can't be beat, and the rest of the menu is great, too! Don't miss Southern Kitchen if you're traveling in the Shenandoah Valley!

This is an easily accessible restaurant with plenty of parking. The food was so delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful. They had unworkable jukeboxes on each table which brought back lots of memories. Very quaint and I would highly recommend. This reminded me of the friendly neighborhood place where everyone goes for great food and socialization. The prices were... More
