    Too many mistakes were made as we were seated. Given the wrong menus. Had to ask, after at least 10 minutes, for a waiter. We understand the issue of finding good help is endemic in our area, but PLEASE train them. Don’t call a couple “You guys”, don’t hand the bill to the man - set it on the table, come ask how the food was,etc. basic items of service. This is not the Southfork I had been to before. Sadly, we will not return.

    My husband and I celebrated a holiday meal together. We both ordered wine and the grilled salmon. The food was excellent and our waiter was outstanding. We looked at the dessert menu and the waiter suggested the Brandy bread pudding. It was the perfect finishing touch on our delicious meal.

    We were seated indoors, even though we requested outdoor dining. Our server was not very attentive and decided (on her own) to change the way my meal was presented. Then, we were done and she was not coming back to our table. When my husband finally got up and went to the hostess station, he found out that our server had been sent home. Someone was supposed to take over and they never came to our table. All in all, not a good evening out.

    Food was fantastic and our server was excellent. We had mussels f9r an appetizers. All were excellent. Brussel sprouts can actually be good with The pan crusted cod and braised short ribs was excellent. The sour pear cocktail was very good. Odered from early dining menu which came with a bottle of wine, although it was the house wine it was very good. Will diffently be going back.

    SFG had fantastic food and our server had excellent recommendations. We had Tuna on wontons, Brussel sprouts, and corn chowder appetizers. All were excellent. Brussel sprouts can actually be good with bacon, goat cheese, and candied walnuts! The Salmon was excellent with risotto. The sour pear cocktail was very good. Perfect fall cocktail.

    We loved our first visit to South Fork. Unfortunately, we've been back at least 4 times and continue to be disappointed. The menu needs some new items and the items that they do offer need some finesse. Drinks are expensive. We went during happy hour and our server never offered us our wine that is included in our diiner package however he had no problem recommending a drink that I didn't like and still charged us for it. Won't be returning unless there are some major improvements.

    No air conditioning hampered our party of five from enjoying our brunch. Very uncomfortable. That being said, the Steak Sandwich, Breakfast, Trout Sandwich & cheeseburger were good. However the Eggs Benedict Hollanise Sauce was runny & odd tasting.

    I have been years several times before, and have always had a great experience. I went this time specifically for my birthday dinner with my husband. The server was very nice but slow. It took more than 10 mins to get my drink. 20+ minutes for the appetizers and 30+ for the food. I ordered the steak frites medium well, and they were burned and black. The amount of fries I received was disturbing. My husband ordered the short rib gnocchi and it was great at the time. We did not want to stay for dessert and they didn’t offer anything for my birthday or acknowledge that it was my birthday. TL;DR used to be great, now it’s slow and not great

    The good Grouper was excellent, food was very good overall. Server was phenomenal. The bad… Food took a while to come out to table. Server apologized several times. One party member ordered lamb chops, medium rare, came out well done. Awkward pause waiting for them to come out, ended up taking them home. The ugly.. Noise level was horrible. Two groups next to us decided to stand in the middle of the dining room and see who could talk the loudest. Just a bad night probably, but would go back just based of food and service.

    My dinner was excellent as well as the dessert. I ordered the pork chop with roasted butternut squash, roasted brussel spouts and a few diced roasted apples. It was cooked and delicately seasoned to absolute perfection. Dessert was the flourless chocolate cake served with whipped cream and two fresh raspberries. It was delicious! Service there was excellent!!!!

    Early Bird Special continues to be a good deal. Now priced at $42, you get 2 entrees, and a good bottle of wine. You can choose from several entrees , meat, fish or vegetarian. I had the short ribs and found them to be very tasty. My wife had the lamb shank, which was also very good. The place is a nice size, with ample outdoor setting. Simple decor with plenty of room. It appears they have expanded the indoor seating area. Like a good pair of broken in shoes, we have been here several times. Well worth the visit. We will be back again.
