Went here for our final meal in NYC. Heard this restaurant was owned by Justin Timberlake by our hotel concierge. The restaurant is definitely aimed at local residents as it is away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square etc. The service was great and the choice of craft beers and cocktails was also very good. The food came... More

A terrible experience of the very worst customer service on 28th December. A long story andthis is my first negative review on Trip Advisor as I believe it has to be really bad to knock a business. We had pre booked a table at 6.00pm and arrived on time and we could see the place was busy for pre theatre... More

Ridiculously good food! My chicken and waffles were fantastic and my hubby's ribs were great too. Kids had obviously homemade chicken tenders and they loved and biscuits that were amazing too. If in midtown, a must visit! We'll be back

I went with a friend for brunch and we didn't get good service at all. I ordered French toast and it was really good but since it didn't come with any sides I ordered bacon and eggs. I was charged about $5 for each of them. Don't order the bacon!!! The bacon was horrible and they brought it to me... More

We had a great meal in here on one of our evenings out. Fab restaurant which is really well themed with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Friendly & efficient staff especially Elizabeth who served us. Food was amazing, huge portions & very tasty. We'll definitely be back if we visit New York again. Highly recommended!

This restaurant is owned by Justin Timberlake. The atmosphere is very southern with wood everywhere. It is a bit small, but there is a lounge downstairs. The food was delicious and our waitress was amazing.

Visited here during a family trip to the city. Ordered Mac n cheese baked beans and chicken tenders. Neither of the dishes were seasoned. It tasted bland. My family member order shrimp. It wasn't seasoned well and it was fried very hard. The sweet tea wasn't good. Bottom line it's the northern version of southern cuisine. Not that great.

Visited here as it was quite close to our hotel & was owned by Justin Timberlake so expected it to be of good quality. Once you've navigated the overly busy road to get to the restaurant the setting was really good & the restaurant was not busy at all around 16.00 on a Thursday afternoon which was good (well if...

We went to Southern Hospitality to find comfort food in NYC. I had the pulled chicken sandwich with fries and cornbread. The chicken was good but barely warm. All BBQ places seem to struggle with serving BBQ at a decent temperature. The cornbread was good. The fries were nothing special. The service was poor. The restaurant only had a handful... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
