    Our server started out good then after we ordered our drinks and food it all went down hill from there.. we spent over $150 and were completely ignored from there on our. Once we finally got our food our server didn’t come check on us till the very end. We were there for over an hour and were only checked on our first ten minutes. Very disappointed in the service. The food was good with the exception of the Mac and cheese that came out cold. But our server wouldn’t have known that case she took it away before I could even say anything to her about it at the end. Overall I would not come back.

    I went for the brunch and was disappointed. I ordered the Braised Country Ham Benedict. While it was presented beautifully, I did not immediately see that the meal was missing one poached egg and the base corn bread because I couldn't see they were missing under the hollandaise. The staff was very courteous and it was removed from my bill, but the meal was lack luster and I didn't have time to let them fix it (they kindly offered). Just wasn't the experience I was hoping for.

    Everyone in my group of four left disappointed. It really felt like there was no quality control in the kitchen. Food was poorly seasoned. Proteins were overcooked and dry. Presentation was off-putting. The aioli's emulsification was broken – should have never been allowed out of the kitchen. The quality was certainly not worth the price.

    The drummers sitting outside the restaurant were clashing with the music from the speakers outside. The service was soooo slow. The oysters were good but the flys were ridiculous. May need some fans or helicopter things to fight that.

    Perhaps I had a little higher expectations so was not as “wowed” by the food as I expected to be (NYer leaving review). The cocktail and ambiance at Sternewirth before heading over to Southleigh is likely partly to blame (highly recommend). I had the fried chicken and side of mac and cheese. The fried chicken was very fresh, crispy and moist (including the white meat). I was hoping for a little more flavor in the batter but the side dipping sauces were good. I’m not a huge fan of dipping sauces in general so was looking for standalone flavor but overall, I would probably order again. The mac and cheese was okay. Not the cheese flavor that I was looking for but then again, everyone has their own style. I prefer a sharper cheddar type sauce whereas this was a milder flavor but still more than just your typical cheese sauce. The dusting of spices was a good add. The portions are very large so definitely recommend a share. If traveling solo for a work trip, I would still recommend the splurge in a side or two just to try the different flavors. I ate inside and had a really attentive waiter. The only downside was the fact there were at least 5 flies flying around my table which were more irritating than a sign of uncleanliness. This may be do to fact that they have a little easier access to come inside since there’s not vestibule buffer. Since there is also a lot of seafood cooked, the smell may also cause more attraction. Overall, I would probably eat here again for a more casual setting but would try and make the venture to their fine dining location if time permitted. But definitely see the appeal for a causal but higher end menu with a group of friends or family. Beer was light and refreshing for the over a 100 degree weather!

    Seated indoors near a door leading to patio. This table should not have been seated as it was so windy outside that each time wait staff went in or out, everything on our table blew into the floor - napkins, menus, etc. food was great but it is very, pricy. Four entrees, three sides, four drinks = $240. $22 for fried chicken with no sides. Special occasion place but too pricy for every day.

    Outstanding restaurant, large portions so we shared.. Wonder cold water Oysters, highly recommend watermelon, and the red fish was really delicious, with a grit cake and many gluten free options too. Wine and Beer some fun wine frozen drinks. Then if you like head into #HotelEmmabar. Can't wait to go back and try something new...maybe the seafood salad, Shrimp boil or even a steak they cover all the bases. The French Chardonnay was a perfect accompaniment!

    I would give this place 10 stars if I could! The space is great - very "industrial chic", with a distinctly Texan flavor - it feels so authentic. The food is fabulous - my guest and I shared a wonderful steak salad, and then we each had seafood for our main course. But the real stars of Southerleigh are the staff - the service and management are extraordinary. I have a rare (and very unpleasant) allergy, and our server went above and beyond to ensure that I felt safe and comfortable with the dish that I ordered. I really appreciated their thoughtful attention, and warm but professional approach. I will definitely be back!
