I have visited Charleston
I have visited Charleston 3 times, and always make a point to eat at the Southend Brewery, each visit have always had outstanding results. All family and friends who have accompanied me,have all been pleased with the experience, which pleases me.

Surprisingly Kid Friendly
Had dinner there with kids while visiting Charleston. Good compromise choice with something to make each of us happy. Food was good. Server was very attentive but not intrusive. Wife and I did enjoy the inhouse brews. There were only 4 from which to choose but was not an issue as it was a well chosen sampling. Would go back again for lunch or dinner. Great location with lots of charm in terms of the building (inside and out) and the neighborhood. Easy walk there from our hotel.

The resturant was very nice
The resturant was very nice and the building in which it resided was elegant and historic. There was a wide veriaty of food and everyone in our party loved the food and beer. The online reservation worked great! We certainly will visit the resturant again.

This is a big restaurant with lots of activity (and noise!). There were many options for southern food on the menu. The food was good. Service was a bit slow on our Friday night visit. However, it was about what I expected of a brewpub.

Great food service atmosphere
Great food service atmosphere and delicious brews. If your looking for a casual dining spot that has something for everyone, is kid and adult friendly and enjoy a nice cold beer you owe it to yourself to visit Southend Brewery and Smokehouse.

Relaxed, friendly and familiar!
Wonderful, relaxed and friendly. Our waiter, Ross, was fantastic! Food was familiar, but upscale with a twist. Must try the BBQ wings as an appetizer. Was slightly disappointed that the dessert menu was different than what they have on their website....but I got over it :) We will return for sure!

First time eating here and
First time eating here and menu was expansive with many choices. The atmosphere was kickin with a three piece jazz band
playing in the front room. Unfortunately we were seated where we couldn't see them. Food was great as well as service.
We'll be back !!

The menu was diverse - pizza
The menu was diverse - pizza to brisket and meatloaf. The food was good and our server was very attentive. The mac-n-cheese was a big hit. The Smokehouse was a very busy place on a Saturday night. I would definitely recommend reservations.

Great service, a little unorganized
The overall service was great, our waitress was super sweet and the food was great. However, we organized an event there (working with staff for about a week and a half) but when I got there, NO ONE knew what was going on... it was a disappointing since we had to contact people outside of the restaurant while still entertaining the group we brought.... and trying not to make ourselves look bad since we thought the plans were taken care before we arrived.

Very good food, tremendous service. Will visit again.

Great food - fit our taste
Great food - fit our taste buds perfectly. Good drnks. We had the chicken nachos - outstanding. I had the turkey and brie sandwich - quite tasty. Other had burgers and a pizza. Everyone was stuffed after the nachos that we had a lot of take home food. Sides were mac and cheese - which was delicious. A do over would have had us just doing apps. Lots of large parties but noise was fine. Would definately go again.

We have now been to Southend twice and both times our pizza has been out of the world. We will definitely be coming back.

Brew pub with great food
We've been to the Southend Brewery a few times now. The food is always good and the local beers are good as well. The menu provides a wide variety from which to choose. This trip, one member of our party was very particular and they accommodated her requests without any problems.

Father's day dinner
This was a fathers day dinner from my brother and I and we all had a great time. The bar on the third story was great and dinner was fantastic. The noise level was fine we could still take without yelling, we had a great time.

A solid brewery.
Great beer and a nice selection of food on the menu. I'd go back.

Everything was amazing. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The service is great, friendly and super welcoming. Can't wait to go back.

We popped inside for lunch this week. We had Carolina pulled pork sandwiches. My side was collard greens (very good and fresh tasting) and my husband had the mac & cheese with which he was pleased. We tried the Southend summer brew. Very good. Quick and friendly service, easy to get to location, and reasonable prices.

Good Brew Pub
Enjoyed the beer flight. The brown and red ales were.favorites. Went mostly for the beer but the food turned out to be quite good as well. We had Danish Ribs and Shrimp & Grits.

A great casual, relaxed restaurant. We visited during restaurant week, and tried several dishes, and all were wonderful. We especially enjoyed the Fried Green Tomatoes with Pimento Cheese and Chow Chow appetizer. There was a jazz band playing, good music, loud enough to heard but not too loud you couldn't carry on a conversation. The service was outstanding!

It's all about the beer
We chose this restaurant for one of our Restaurant Week options; we like to try new places during Restaurant Week. Great E. Bay location. Our server was good and the prix fixe menu was good, too. Everyone tried something different so we all got a taste of everything. Fried green tomatoes a bit bland and the smoked brisket a bit too smokey. Desserts very good. Two pitchers of beer and both were great choices and the highlight of the meal. Good live music during dinner.

Went for Restaurant Week and everything was liked by all!

Dinner was wonderful. I had the BBQ plate and it was some of the best BBQ I've ever had. The ribs were fantastic - fall off the bone incredible. Pork and brisket was also very good. Sauces were homemade and delicious. Sides were very good too. Another in our party and the chicken and it was very good as well. I will definately go back for more. Staff was pleasant and very attentive. Beautiful restaurant.

Perfect for birthday dinner
Went for my husband's birthday, and they couldn't have been nicer! Food and service were excellent!

It's a Brewery...
Andrew, our server, was great! Good descriptions of the beers available and knowledgeable about the southern cuisine which we were less familiar with. The beers were good and the food fairly typical fare for the type of restaurant. It was the type of meal we were looking for this particular evening and Andrew ensured the experience was more than pleasant. My wife enjoyed the shrimp and grits (her first experience of grits); and the fried chicken, which I had, was hot when it arrived. Tried the seasonal beer - an IPA - it was a good beer.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten here a number of times and the food and service are always consistently good. The staff is always friendly and knowledgable about the menu.

We came for the beer, since we love Craft Breweries, but we were charmed by the 3 piece band music(jazzy) and the food a delightfully prepared and served. Don't forget your wallet, this place isn't CHEAP, but it was worth every penny. The artisan brie was outstanding with the chutney, don't miss it(made locally), and the best Hush Puppies evah!!! Oh yeah, the BEER, consistent, bright, no off flavors and a nice flight of 7 beers, is available. Something for everyone. IPA to Porter and everything in between. Take home a growler. The brew equipment is on the main floor, the fermenters are up on the second story, and it looks like they serve directly out of their bright tanks, on display behind the bar. My favorite beer --American Brown Ale.

I loved the ambiance here!
I loved the ambiance here! It has a very warming and welcoming vibe. I made a reservation and was seated right away. I had the butternut squash ravioli and it was delicious, loved it. Our server was very pleasant and friendly, my group enjoyed our meals and time at the restaurant.

Excellent Dining Experience
We finally got to this place after several trips to Charleston. It has always been on our list, after friend's recommendations. Loved the environment, the food and of course, the beer wasn't bad either.
