Located in the old Brewering Association Building, Southerleigh was named after the prevailing Gulf breeze and the Texas coast’s proud sense of place. Southerleigh serves Chef Jeff Balfour's modern take on Texas' cross- cultural cuisine. The on- premise brewery will offer a rotating array of original recipe, craft batch beers from Brewer Les Locke.

Obviously great location. Really good food and exceptional service. The only thing I REALLY take exception with is that they highlight snapper throats on the menu but didn't have them. Slightly more disappointing is that no one at the restaurant could say when they would ever have snapper throats in the future.

Fried chicken was very dry and so was the yellow cake. The menu looked promising but fell flat. Service was great and it’s a super cute place but food was just mediocre.

Fabulous location, attached to the Hotel Emma at the Pearl Brewery. Because of the location, I expected something more impressive food wise. I think my expectations were just too high and was disappointed that the food wasn't over the top. The service was excellent tho and it was a fun experience.

I have been to this restaurant many times for brunch, usually with good results. Today, for the first time in my life I WALKED OUT. We showed up early for our reservation, were seated immediately and then summarily ignored for 20 minutes. I watched 6 or 7 servers walk past our table, look at us and completely ignore us. Even after getting up to complain, and a server came right away to say she would help us in a minute, she never came back. Then, another server came to the table, started taking drink orders, and in mid-sentence said "never mind, I'm not going to be serving you after all" and walked off. My jaw dropped. I grabbed my hungry 4 yr old, my husband and stormed out. But, not before giving the manager Scott a very. very. frustrated piece of my mind. Must have been a bad day because he admitted we were the 2nd table to do so that morning. To his credit, he did everything he could to express his apologies, try to reseat us elsewhere, and then offered to send a dining credit after we left (which he did). There are WAY too many food options at the Pearl, so if you have a restaurant there - you better get it right.

I visited the Southerleigh Brewery or dinner to meet up with another couple for dinner dates. We enjoyed the food. Our server was great and attentive. They are a brewery and don’t have a bar option so those of us who didn’t want beer with our dishes were a little disappointed, but the food made up for that.

it was not very busy and our food took a while; the assistant manager came out to apologize; however offering a free dessert would have been nice.

Overall a nice place. Design results in a very noisy place. Nice focused menu. Since a brewery, the wine menu was a bit thin, and definitely leaned toward the pricier side. Cheapest cab is over $60. Shrimp was very good. Snapper very good. Spices were excellent. Beef cheeks were very fatty.

I was disappointed that they did not have some of their specialty items on the dinner menu because either they only serve it during lunch or they were "out of the item", as stated by our wait person. I feel that whatever is an item that is frequently asked for such be more available. Ending up not eating while my guests ate dinner.

Far and away this was the best dining experience we’ve had in a long time!

Boiled shrimp a bit mealy. However, the fried chicken may be the best I’ve ever eaten. Really liked the cheese grits and the cornbread was dessert quality. Setting was great and the wait staff attentive without being intrusive.

We always enjoy a meal at Southerleigh. This time it was for lunch, and the burger was terrific. We also enjoyed the deviled eggs and a pretzel - gotta have the pretzel! Had a side salad and it was enormous - enough for us to share. We split everything we ordered and had more than enough food. Everything was delicious and well made. Service was excellent and made for a relaxing and enjoyable meal.
