The Food at South Main Kitchen

Overall, the food is fresh and the flavor combinations are unique. Each plate was a medley of distinctive flavors and beautifully plated. They offer a Sunday brunch, lunch and dinner menu with entrees starting at $16.


I started with the Bacon & Bleu Salad that features levity farm greens. It was a light start to my meal that showcased their attention to ingredients.

The dinner menu features steak, chicken, pork and fish entree options. It was hard to pick, but I went with the ‘NC Trout’ that’s topped with blistered carrot, fresh crab, salsa verde, and peanut.  It had a delicious flavor and served just the way I like it.

My Husband went with the ‘W. Allgood Burger’ which offers a Southern twist since it’s topped with pimento cheese. The burger was extra juicy with the bear creek ground beef. I have to admit – I wanted a bite of his too. Everything looked so appetizing.

The dessert menu features items for everyone’s sweet tooth – from savory to decadent. We shared the ‘Flourless Chocolate Cake’. It was a rich option but plated with a nice serving a Chai ice cream to complement the rich texture.
