Nothing goes better with Southern BBQ than a cold pint of beer and a glass of whiskey. Come in and appreciate some traditional Southern cooking, well crafted cocktails, extensive whiskey seletion and house-brewed beer.

Brisket & ribs pair with American whiskeys & house-brewed beer at this upscale barbecue joint.- Google
"I recommend the hamhock, cheesy grits and hush puppies."
"However, if you are looking for Southern food, this might be your only option."

I've walked by Southpaw at least a few hundred times, but I think I've only been there once before. I recently went back again with a few friends, and I was amazed at the service and food. Wish I had thrown Southpaw into my regular rotation earlier! Pretty full on a Saturday night, but we were lucky to get seats at the packed bar and then eventually seated at a table. We ordered a few drinks while we waited. The Southpaw iced tea was really good - sweet but strong. The What What was also good and well balanced with a spicy hint of jalapeno, but didn't taste as strong. Lots of great options for paleo, primal, & gluten-free foodies. I really enjoyed the smoked beef brisket (they offer lean, medium fatty, and fatty cuts) with sweet potatoes (no molasses/sugar added). Also tried the fried pickles with aoli, which were good, but a little too breaded for my taste. The hush puppies were also really good! Service was super friendly and atmosphere was casual and bustling. I can't wait to come back and try their other BBQ dishes!

Had a pretty good time here tonight with friends. Most of us just had drinks but one friend got the heir loom tomatoes which came with apple smoked bacon, greens and bread - kinda like a deconstructed BLT as the bartender accurately described it. The wines were good and the beer selection worked. A bummer was that one of my friends couldn't get the sour ale that we had when we celebrated the fact that I got my first legit job after I got to the bay. Yay!

The "What What"" cocktail was great. The beef brisket and pork were equally delicious! Service was very attentive.

I walked in and was immediately flooded with the smell of bleach coming from the back of the restaurant. Why would there be an open bleach mop bucket in a restaurant during open hours?
Response from the owner - a week ago
Hi Randen - I'm so sorry to hear about your experience! We actually don't use bleach in the restaurant, however, because we are a brewery, we do have more strict cleanliness policies surrounding the brewing area. It's possible that when you visited us, we had just finished pulling some kegs from our tanks and sanitizing the equipment. Again, I'm really sorry about this and I hope you'll consider coming back to try us out! Warmly, Maura

Good service, pretty good selection of beer and cocktails. bbq sauces weren't great, bbq beans were like nothing I'd ever had before (not in the good way), and the brisket had little to no marinade/rub flavoring.
Response from the owner - 8 months ago
Hey Gary - sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the dishes you ordered. I'll be sure to check in with our chef regarding our brisket prep. I hope you'll try us out again!
