SPH is a group of passionate restaurateurs who will stop at nothing to create unforgettable guest experiences. The mission of our team is to shape the cultural fabric of Atlanta and beyond. We provide a short term escape for diners by creating distinct dining experiences that appeal to our guest’s sense of adventure. Each restaurant offers an entertaining and intimate atmosphere coupled with genuinely hospitable service and innovative fare.
Our deeply rooted southern hospitality can be experienced in 17 restaurants locations across the South East. Our concepts range from an elegant southern gastropub, an eclectic Spanish tapas restaurant, a coastal seafood shack, and continue on to our “un-mexed” neighborhood taquerias, and more. In our never ending desire to introduce proper southern hospitality to your community we will continue to grow and fulfill our promise of providing that unforgettable guest experience to you.
At Southern Proper Hospitality we believe giving back to the community is always in season. Food is sustenance, but nourishing a community requires more than just the meals we serve. At Southern Proper Hospitality we feel it’s an unwritten part of our job descriptions to play an active role in serving the needs of the community and improving lives. We have been proponents of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, New Story Charity, No Kid Hungry, Bert’s Big Adventure, Breast Cancer Charities of America, as well as neighborhood schools and grass root fundraising events near our restaurants.
