This restaurant featuring Southern fare introduced me to Lemon Chess pie which is superb. I love their food and fresh baked breads. Get here fast because they're closing as of 12/15/16 and will reopen under new management/owner as Honeysuckle.

I have not been to Vidalia for many years, and the return was worthwhile. Service is impeccable, wine list very complete, and all options delicious, with emphasis on seafood and meats. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and great service in an elegant, yet modern, Southern style. This was a perfect place to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.

Overall a good experience and some decent food. We were a large business group and they catered to us nicely. Great bread and scallops. My pork was a little dry and tough but tasted good.

We ate at Vidalia for the 1st time last night. What a great experience! Our waiter Will was very attentive, explained the menu changes and was always quick to refill our beverages. I really don't like pimento cheese comma but they serve complementary pimento cheese...More

The waiter was rude and the food was not served at the correct temperatures. The gazpacho was warm and the pork chop was almost raw in the center.More
