The Other Half and I were in the area, and needed a place to stop for lunch. We were almost past the place before we realized it...
It was the end of the lunch hour, pretty full but not too crowded. Our server was "motoring", delivering food and drink orders, but acknowledged us promptly. Drinks came quickly. The menu was pretty standard pub grub listings, but....ummmmm....it IS a pub after all.
OH had Cajun chicken wrap with a side of coleslaw. I had the usual steak sandwich with fries. Cajun chicken was robustly spiced, and the wrap looked well-filled and fresh. Coleslaw was good, if a bit onion-y. The steak was tender and cooked rare (to order). The fried onions on top could have used a bit more cooking, but were tasty. The fries were excellent, very crispy outside, nice and mealy inside.
Service was pleasant and quick. Washrooms were tidy. We would return if in the area. Nice pub.
This pub is much like sitting in a fish bowl. The large windows and very high ceiling does not provide the private and cosy atmosphere that one looks for in a pub. The food was good but average in quality. The service was in keeping with the quality of the food.
Have been going to the South Pointe Pub for the past four years and we have found it to be a great little pub with consistently great food. The man (in my life) always orders the South Point Burger with fries. I have tried various things on their menus from the pizza (which is good), to all of the Burgers which are Excellent. They also have Salmon, Chicken and a variety of fresh and tasty salads on the menu. They have all kinds of TV's scattered around so there is not a bad view of a game at the pub.
If you haven't tried it, I would recommend that you do because I think you will have a great meal and a fun time..
Went to Southpoint Pub 5pm Mon May 14/12 to enjoy beer & dinner. We told server we would be ordering food but wanted to enjoy a beverage 1st. After change of servers we told new server same thing. Also told Bartender same thing. There were only a few patrons in the pub the 3 hrs we were there. About 7:30pm 2 fellows came in & ordered dinner. At 7:45pm bartender, server & liquor store employee enjoyed their dinner at the end of the bar. I waited until they were finished to summon server over to order dinner. We were told 'THE KITCHEN IS CLOSED'. No notice, noone came to ask if we planned to order food, nothing, nada.
When we told the server this all she said was 'sorry'. I told her we noticed she & other staff members enjoyed their meal just min earlier. We paid for our beverages & left. Will never return. We used to go to this pub fairly regularly & did enjoy good food. This was at least a yr ago. No wonder noone was in the pub.
We have discovered Original Joe's on 160th near 24th & defiinitely enjoy the food, service & staff there. Suggest anyone in the area go to Joe's - forget ever visiting Southpoint again.
So on a rainy Friday night myself and four friends were looking for somewhere local to have dinner and a few beers. Admittedly this was not our first choice for dinner. We tried Browns @ 152 and Hwy 10 and Big Ridge right next door, but both were an hour wait for a table(two of my fave pub/restaurants). After some discussion of what else was around the area, we decided to make our way South down 152nd to South Point Pub. What a mistake that was...
We arrived to find the Pub less than half full and were happy that we could get a table right away. That was the best part of the evening. The waitress took 10 minutes getting over to our table to take our drink orders, and then took another 5 minutes bringing us menus. Upon reading the menu I saw they had a full rack of ribs as the food special on Fridays. Being a rib lover(I may have a problem) I jumped at the chance to try their ribs.
Whilst waiting for our food to arrive I went to the washroom to use the facilities only to find one of the urinals flooding over onto the floor. Using caution not to slip on the nasty soaking wet floor I used the toilet and washed my hands. I found the towel dispenser empty and roll lazily placed on the counter top. I find the state of the washroom is always a good indicator of the overall cleanliness and upkeep of a restaurant, and I've seen nicer washrooms in truck stops!
I got back to our table and we ordered another round of drinks. At least the waitress kept the drinks coming, and that is the only reason she received a '2.' Then our food arrived. The plate itself actually didn't look too bad, and there were a copious amount of french fries under the ribs. I sliced all the ribs and 'dug in.' I almost broke a tooth on them; they were like rib jerky. It was the worst thing I have ever been served in an eatery. EVER! Thinking maybe I got a dud that just got too much heat on the end I took one from the middle and it was just as bad. Shockingly so. It was so bad my friend thought I was exaggerating and so he tried one and promptly spat it out. The entire kitchen staff should be embarrassed and ashamed to have served such shite! I was tempted to go into the kitchen and go Gordon Ramsey on them.
The waitress took them back and said "Yeah lots of people don't like them, would you like something else?" After a kitchen serves something that bad I would even fathom the idea of ever eating anything they produce again.
The entire place has gone to 'hell in a handbasket.' Be forewarned; Do not eat here if you value your oral health. Or gastro-intestinal health. Or your health in general. Don't use the washroom either. In fact just don't go here PERIOD. The best part about the whole place is the liquor store next door!
Decided to have dinner at a local pub with spouse. Our first time at South Point. When we entered, the big screen TV was on with sound pretty high. None the less we decided to eat there sitting sufficiently away from the big black speakers that line the room.
After ordering our dinner someone (bar guys?) decided it would be great to turn the TV volume to the max. It was so loud it deafened us - painful. We were only able to talk if we screamed across the table and even then. Unlike most youngsters we suspected no one had taught these guys how to use a TV remote responsibly. We also thought they would get the idea when half the restaurant up and left. We were about to do the same when our food arrived. This was the second time we saw our waitress and the second waitress. Service bit. I asked her about the TV volume and she said "yes, it's loud" and nothing more was done. Topping it off was the food; modiocre at best, lousy in reality. We eventually were able to flag down another waitress to ask if something was wrong with our order. Again, nothing done to fix it.
Do yourself a favour. If you like this type of place, save yourself some money by driving through McDonalds, take it home, turn on your TV with the volume to the MAX and put your ear to the speaker while eating. At least that way you'll get to choose your channel.
Had lunch here today, was our first time, and I thought it was nice inside, the big windows made it nice and bright. Some places are so dark, it's hard to read the menu. Not a very large menu, but has the basics. We ordered a burger, which was very good, and came with lots of fries, and also ordered the beef dip with caesar salad, which looked very tasty. Portions were large. The service was good, washrooms were clean. If I'm in the area, I would go in again.
The food here was very good and the daquiries were excellent but the service was the absolute pits! Our waitress seemed to flaunt herself around the male customers obviously to get some good tips but completely ignored us. Our drinks were empty and she was not friendly at us until the time she dropped off the bill. That was the first time at a restaurant that I didnt leave a tip. Im not sure if i want to go back after that service even though the food and drinks were good.
We sat at a table in the middle of the pub and waited for an eternity for service. Our drinks were emptied long before we were asked if we wanted another. The food was almost cold. We left a small tip and while leaving was rudely bumped into by a staff member I later found out was named Mathew. The future of this pub will not have me in it.
I have been going into southpoint since it opened acouple years back. The service is always good and the food i've noticed has gotten a lot better. I always have a good time with my friends as the staff are always friendly and theres always a good crowd of people in there as southpoint was known as the place to be on the weekend. However lately i've been concerned with the direction the pub is going with the recent bands that have been playing in there on the weekends and the fact that there seems to be no real drink specials anymore. My friends and I like to enjoy ourselves but find it difficult when we cant hear each other from across the table because the bands super loud and we can only afford to have acuple drinks because theres nothing really on special. We enjoy the 2 guys with guitars that used to play there, and the weekend drink specials from before, but lately have been forced to go elsewhere because we didn't enjoy the atmosphere.
