Charleston is an awesome place to visit. As a brewpub, Southend is only average. But an average brewpub in a city like Charleston is good in my book. A flight of the 6 house brews ran around $10. Bartenders were friendly, as were the other bar patrons. The beers were decent enough. Completely satisfactory visit overall. Southend wonít bring me back to Charleston, but next time Iím here, Iíll definitely come back to Southend.

Walked by and decided to stop in. Only 5 beers on tap. Beers are average micorbrew. People were friendly, and food was pretty average. Overall worth a stop but a bit heavy on the prices.

Very good place. The building is awesome - 3 floors, with an elevator. Have about 6 of their own brews - had 2 of them, not bad. Food was good - had the fried chicken, a lot of food, but good.

I left the Southend Brewery with very positive feelings, afterall I had some excellent beers, the brewery exudes a relaxed ambiance which I loved and the service was perfect - I canít remember the girlís name but she was everything a waitress should be, and she was on the nail in recommending the Bombay Pale Ale. This is certainly a pub I will be visiting again when I get to Charleston again

This place was visited after lunch at Milnerís in Mt Pleasant. The beer was ordinary. It is difficult to find the right match for evaluation. The dessert that we shared was excellent. It was a bread pudding. One of the beers tasted vinegary. It has three stories. the carpets look worn and old. It is very accessable to downton activities.

Visited Southend Brewery during a 3-day trip to Charleston in May. Thereís not a lot of craft beer going on in Charleston so you could do worse. The beers arenít anything close to "innovative" and barely pass as an average craft brew. I had a pretty poor pulled pork sandwich for a "smokehouse" but my wifeís pizza was tasty. I wouldnít recommend, but itís convenient when you are downtown.

Very corporate feel here. Nice upscale downstairs, bar and pool up. Average beer.

I tried to get the sampler, but they only had 5 of their beers at the time, so I have to say selection was awful. The beer isnít anything special either. I enjoyed the food, but service could have been better. The atmosphere is probably its best aspect.

A tourist trap.
Overpriced frozen food and sub-par beer. If it werenít for the huge ceilings and spectical of the brewing tanks, this place would be closed. If you shut youíre eyes and smell/taste/drink - youíd think you were in a Village Inn restaurant after hours -
Flies and dirty carpet and poor wait staff.
Hopefully someone will come in and buy this place and start making decent product and put this place on the map as a beer destination in Charleston.

This place is sad.
1 - the building is beautiful.
2 - they have beautiful equipment, ambiance out the wazoo - hell - a freakiní "Cavern" cove for bands to play in - a la the Beatles 1961-62. They have a dressed up yet very casual looking dining room.
Ambiance only goes so far,
The food is mediocre - what used to be great food is now severed concocted and prepared days or hours before - microwaved, frozen, a tourist trap it has become. If I could, I would buy that building, and turin it into the largest beer store/homebrew shop/microbrewery in Charleston.
So much potential.
The beers have gone downhill. Nothing special ever - same shitty beers year in and year out. I want to see good things from this place - I want to support it - but itís fallen into half-ass management and the quality has disappeared Iím sad to say.
Let me know if itís gotten any better.
