2 tables near us had children using phones and iPads watching videos and playing games, which was loud and annoying. The steak we ordered medium rare came medium well. We like the idea of an ever changing menu and craft beer but unfortunately this visit left us a little disappointed.

The food was tasty, generally the service was good, the portions seemed a little small for the price. The settings are unique.

Each year we visit San Antonio and Southerleigh has been one of our favorite places to eat. We were disappointed that the chicken cracklins were no longer on the menu, but our server suggested the fried redfish throats which were amazing!! Although it is an appetizer, I will probably order it as my entree next time. Two of us had the fried chicken and it was well seasoned and very crispy. The redeye gravy was not very impressive - a bit oily and flavorless - but to be honest, the chicken didn't really need it. Another in our party had the cracker crusted fish and it was very fresh and flavorful. Our server was attentive and helpful. Overall, we had a great dining experience and would definitely recommend it.

We enjoyed our time. The noise level is too high and so I would not recommend it for those who want to talk or even hear what one's guest is saying.

My friend and I were seated immediately. The server approached and greeted us with her name. As we looked at her, we realized that she has "gauges" in her ears. Large open holes in the earlobe which were hard to ignore . This unappetizing feature was disconcerting. While she was friendly and attentive, those holes in her ears made it difficult to look at her.
We ordered an appetizer of cornbread. It came after my soup and minutes before our entrees were served.

While the food was very good, the appearance of the server and the timing of the food delivery left something to be desired.

Lunch w/ friends. Food was great, so was the beer. I'll be back, if only for the beer.

The place is difficult to find the first visit. Needs better signage from the parking lot to the site.

The atmosphere, décor, & service were wonderful. We were greeted immediately, sat promptly at reservation time and the food service was great. I wish the food had more taste. I ordered lump crab & avocado omelette with green salsa- the plating was beautiful, the food temperature was hot but unfortunately it wasn't tasty. It was blain & lacked heat. Perhaps I just need to try another dish. There will be another 'next time' because they hit the mark on everything else.

Overall, the experience was very good. The food was fresh and good. A few items were a little under seasoned - fried oysters and cheddar jalepeno Grits needed more salt. The Redfish with crab was delicious . It took a while to receive cocktails. Since the restaurant is lauded as a micro brewery this surprised us on a Saturday evening. Overall, very attentive waitress. Prices were a bit expensive for the fare on the menu. Location is great!

Southerleigh is AMAZING! Ryan was our server and went above and beyond! The Snapper Throats are a must have appetizer! We loved the steak, the porkchop, and the red fish! All around everything was delicious. If you love cornbread, you must order it!

My wife and I were in San Antonia for the celebration of my birthday. Our hotel clerk pointed out the Pearl area as a great complex where to find great food. My wife search online and found Southerleigh FF&Brewery which is located with the Hotel Emma complex. We arrived at the Emma and went to the bar, a must see, for some drinks where we sat in our repurposed brewery vat and enjoyed our liberations. Then to the Southerleigh, only a wall away, for a wonderful dinner: sharing a kale mix salad, wife had the red fish and I the ribeye, along with a delightful Darwinian IPA. A most wonderful evening for a special ocassion. The staff were most professional.

I’ve been here before and had a wonderful experience. This time our food an unusually long time considering. I have a feeling something was lost in communication. That being said the food was great and I’ll definitely give it another shot. Some days are just off.

Fantastic food, great setting and wonderful service. Good selection of in house micro brews as well. Ryan was our server and is an absolute gem. Very knowledgable of the menu, both food and beer as well as the area and history of the pearl. Would highly recommend this as a must visit while in San Antonio.

The food was delicious! The jalapeno grits were the best I've ever had. My only complaint would be the pesky flies on the window next to us. There were three and they were quite annoying.

We had the fried chicken and it was delicious! Moist and flavorful. Also, the beet and goat cheese salad was yummy. The side we always order every visit is the cornbread. This time we also ordered the green beans. Our new favorite! The server was very helpful and knowledgeable in determining which beer to order. They have such a great selection.
Once again, Southerleigh was just what we needed after a busy, stressful week!

I was in San Antonio for a work conference and I’m so glad my friends and I made our way down to the Pearl and chose the Southerleigh for our last meal in the city. The food was amazing, the strawberry beer was awesome, and we had a great night.

This place... pure excellence!
Right as you walk in you’re greeted by smiling faces and a warm atmosphere.
The lighting, the furniture, and the structure of the whole restaurant is simply stunning.
We were promptly taken care of by an exuberant waitress, who knew every part of the food and alcohol menus. Every suggestion she had for us was followed by smiles as we were pleasantly stuffing our faces!

My family and myself will most definitely be coming back for more!
