    The service was extremely slow. The restaurant layout is extremely cramped with tables so close that when they seat new people the new guest butts are in your face. The food was extremely salty and after a long wait the food was brought to the table lukewarm. It was not a good experience.

    For some reason this location changed their menu and got rid of most of their best items. No more cheddar grits, collard greens or several other items. Just bizarre that they’d deliberately make their menu worse. Also, they don’t even have a full bar…just beer and wine.

    Boo! Did not live up to the hype. Chefs were not on their game. Caviar fries were undercooked and lacked any flavor or caviar. Corn bread was tasty, but so dry it crumbled to a mound of dust. The fish throats were over cooked and under seasoned. Served only with thinly sliced drink lemons. Do not waist your time or money.

    The scallop and ham risotto was recommended by our amazing waiter. However, the scallops were EXTREMELY salty. The ham in the risotto was also strange and didn’t go with the dish. Every thing else was amazinggg, we got the calamari, crab mac, which was unique and the red snapper which was to die for

    Used to be my fav brunch spot but the last 3 times it’s been disappointing! Waffle was so cold the butter wouldn’t even melt, the chicken was so salty, the potatoes had an oil taste like they weren’t properly drained! The grits and fruit were the only good thing, and for how empty it was service was very slow we sat for about 10 minutes before anyone came to offer us drinks or anything!

    Located in the fabulous Hotel Emma on the Pearl grounds, this eatery does not serve liquor, but makes up for it with inventive takes on wine slushies and a broad list of beers. Recognized for its great fried chicken, Southerleigh didn't disappoint. But the dish would have been better served on a plate than in a bowl. The elk steak at $47 was a waste of money -- tough and tasteless. Bread was neither brought to the table nor offered. Service was friendly but spotty. Overall, a good experience, but nowhere near great.

    Great ambiance, our server was fine, food was disappointing though. Both meals (burger and quail) were over cooked and came out room temp like it had been sitting out too long. The plate was hot, but that’s not fooling anyone. We had also ordered the cauliflower as a side. Menu seemed exciting, but it didn’t translate very well to the food. It was kind of bummer considering the price and all their rave reviews. It’s a neat place, so I’d still recommend going. The food wasn’t anything to write home about. Hopefully your experience is top notch.

    Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery is located on the Pearl plaza. We sat outside and it was an incredibly pleasant setting. The inside looks like a wonderful experience as well- dining in the restaurant of an old restored hotel. It seems a bit noiser. The servings are huge! We had 2 appetizers, a cup of soup, a side salad and one entry for 4 people. A couple of us are big eaters- and we still had leftovers! So why the 4 stars? The appetizers and soup were pretty "meh." The mac and cheese had very little cheese. The cauliflower was nicely grilled- but sat on a sauce that tasted like a flour and milk sauce/gluey- no flavor. The salad was good. We also had the fish main course- grilled- and it was lovely. So - skip the appetizers and soup- and you'll be happy!

    So!! The Jalapeño Cheddar Grits are a must, and it's enough for two people to share. I really appreciated the fact that my scrambled eggs were cooked as requested, and they had FLAVOR! I've gotten used to places serving bland nuggets of sadness that my first bite was a pleasant surprise. Chris, our server, is awesome. We will be back!!

    We made our reservation as late as possible 1010 so we could dine and drink casually and ring in the new year, only to be seated and told we had 15 minutes to order as the kitchen was closing at 1030 and the restaurant closing at 1100. The waiter advised the staff wanted to get out to celebrate the new year with family and friends. Really did not set a good tone and first experience at this restaurant.

    I was greatly disappointed with the food. The fried chicken was very bland and the biscuits were stale and small. My mom ordered the roasted quail and that was tasty at least. All the staff were very nice and professional. The restaurant was clean and beautifully decorated. However, our dining table was not in great shape. The table is made out of marble and had a crack in the middle of it. Unknowingly my mom slided her hand against the crack and nicked her palm. I assumed the staff was not aware of the damaged table, so before we left I mentioned it to our server. He said that management was aware of it but they didn't know it got worse. So, I believe the restaurant does not care for the safety of its customers. I hope they take care of that issue cause it's a safety hazard, especially for small children.

    We like Southerleigh but this visit was a definite miss. The mushroom soup was warm, not hot, and was overly salted. The duck rolls gets credit for delicious duck meat but the hard shell rolls were very greasy. Th redfish with crab was described as "cracker crusted" but we expected a sauteed fish. What we got was a deep fried hard crust. I think deep fried should be explicitly stated in their menu description. Also, the fish itself was not the best although the crab meat was delicious. All in all, this meal was not as consistent as we have come to expect from them.

    The food was really good but the fries needed to be just a tad crispier and needed salt. Try adding salt and pepper or a truffle salt on them.

    We went for Christmas Eve brunch with the family. There was four of us, so not a large group. We waited over 30 minutes to get our meals and they were not good. I ordered the California Cram Cake and it was over cooked, dry and was all breadcrumbs vs any crab. The poached egg was rubbery and overcooked. My daughter ordered the biscuits and gravy. The shrimp was mushy and the biscuit was very salty. My husband on the eggs to order and my dad a burger. They both enjoyed their meals. While we waited a long time for food our waiter was excellent. We have been there for dinner several times and never had this issue with the food quality before.

    For the price I expected better, we went for brunch, I had the burger I asked for pink and it was well done, but still was good, wife had the shrimp on ice, shrimp was not fresh. The beer was very good, had the Penelope Porter and was amazing. Beer good, food way overpriced for the quality. Waitress as very good and attentive.

    Had Galveston shrimp boil. Way to much sauce on the food. It was very spicy and that was not mentioned to us. There were 2 dogs in the restaurant and that was very unappealing. Food and dogs indoors is not a good mix. It was our first visit and I don’t think I’ll rush to come back. I will say the employees were very friendly.

    We have been to this place a couple of times, always great food and service. This night I guess they were just off. For the price I kind of expect good service, we get to choose where we spend our hard earned money. This night was just not good with service, waiter was friendly but we had to wait on everything, refills etc guess they may have been short handed but at any rate not a great night
