Very nice meal. Always love the cornbread. The schnitzel was an interesting variation on chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes were out of this world. Our server was very polite. Social distancing and other environmental safeguard seemed to be solid

We’re from out of town and the last we dined at Southerleigh we fell in love with their food. Their service is also amazing, very attentive and quick.

Just wasn’t up to par as we usually have had. Could have made out special night alot better from the time we arrived, when we were treated very casually and not important, with the management team spending more time speaking to the host then us. Just a feeling that our coming to support this restraints reopening weeks wasn’t anything big to them. Waitress was good but seemed rushed, again not the typical feeling we had there. Food and drinks were good as always except the one drink was never frozen and we were told Because they keep
The Froze machine outside it wouldn’t be —- how about keeping it inside for those that choose to dine with you . Walked away feeling for the $100 plus dollars spent, we could have gotten better experience at chili’s for a lot cheaper !

The deviled eggs and trapper throats are fantastic as appetizers, the burger was huge and delicious! It’s always fun to eat there and the atmosphere just makes everything okay. Our waiter was sweet and fast.

Southerleigh is hands down one of our favorite restaurants at Pearl. One of the best in SA. We love Keith. He didn't wait on us tonight, but he did stop by to say hello. And that really meant a lot to us that he took the time to come by and talk. Chris did a great job. Especially after we started off with an issue over wine.
Scott stopping by to check on us & talk made our experience even better.
As always, food was delicious and on point. We love Southerleigh and always look forward to our next visit.

This was my first less-than-5-Star experience at Southerleigh. The food was still delicious, but the service was not as good as it usually is. Our server took forever to get us our food and our overall brunch experience took over 2 hours, even though we were seated immediately upon arrival. I would still recommend Southerleigh because my service has been excellent every other time.

Great food and outstanding service! Peter our waiter was very friendly, personable and attentive. We enjoyed our lunch and most of all the great service that was provided. We will be back and most definitely hope to be served by Peter. You’re establishment is very lucky to have him part of your team.

We went March 14th at the height of the CoVid19 scare and the employees did a excellent job wiping down tables, door handles and all surfaces. Our service was great and made our experience exceptional.

This was our first visit and we will definitely return. I had the pork schnitzel and jalapeño cheese grits and my wife had the grilled redfish with a house salad and the jalapeño cornbread as a side dish. All the food was excellent; we especially enjoyed the cornbread and the grits.

Southerleigh is also a brewery, and they have a wide variety of creatively-named beers (I had “Rats Swimming After Midnight,” a malt-forward brew that paired well with the schnitzel and was good enough that I had two! [We were walking back to our hotel so it was OK. 😄]) However, they were out of several of their beers, a testament to their popularity, I suppose, but still a little disappointing. Their wine list is limited, but if my wife's Cabernet was typical, it's high quality at a reasonable price.

Service was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The atmosphere was energetic, even on a Sunday night, but not too loud to have a conversation.

Literally one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. Our waitress was SO awesome! Attentive without being overbearing.

They made sure to make both my brother and sister in laws’ birthdays super special.

I even had a note on the opentable reservation potentially asking for them to set aside an order of their famous appetizer (Snapper Throats) since I knew our late reservation would mean they would probably be out. They had the order waiting to be cooked for us as soon as we sat down!

I could not recommend more!!

We LOVED Southerleigh! The food was fantastic, their beer was amazing, and our server, Sierra, was outstanding. We were visiting from out of town but if I was a San Antonio resident it would be my go to restaurant of choice. 5 stars for sure and I would give more if I could!

I found this restaurant delightful. I loved the setting in the brewery area adjacent to the Hotel. The old buildings are beautiful. The food was excellent. This was the best southern fried chicken I have ever had. Well done!

The service was great, the atmosphere very nice -- not what you'd expect in San Antonio. I loved my food except for the dessert. The coconut pound cake was very dry. I have a horrible sweet tooth and I could only eat two bites. My friend ordered the duck -- as recommended by the server and she said it was "blah."

This was our first time eating at Southerleigh. The service was prompt and friendly. Every dish was excellent. We had the deviled eggs for appetizer which were excellent. Two of us had the red snapper and one had the shrimp & sausage pasta. Both were fabulous and we shared a carrot cake which was delicious. The portions were large and perfectly prepared.

Silverware was etched (looked dirty) ,coffee mug still had lipstick mark from prior patron.
Waitress was very nice and accommodating though, but I would have expected cleaner dishes from this place.

I loved the redfish, the grits and the cornbread! I was disappointed with the ribeye steak. The cut was not good, it was under cooked and lacked flavor.
