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."

They have a good range of whiskey and have some interesting names for cocktails. I liked the Prohibition Sweet Tea. Not too sweet and light on the booze so I could enjoy my hearty ribs meal. The ribs were good and are a sizeable portion that you can easily share with another friend. You can try them with different sauces that are on the table. My favorite was the Baton Rouge Gumbo, which was really, really good and plated to us first. Be sure to finish your gumbo quickly to make space for the ribs though. I think we kept our friends waiting since we were taking our time with the gumbo.

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!
