To be honest this place looks like it does most of its business at the bar or patio. We were seated by a friendly hostess. Eventually we were waited on and were first told she didn’t know it was her table and looked kinda put...More

We had reservations and most of us ordered in advance. There were at least 20 of us for lunch. Service was fast and friendly for such a large crowd. I had a salad with shrimp and it was very good. Others commented they enjoyed their...More

Weather was turning bad and a taphouse seemed to be a good place to spend the afternoon. The beer selection was incredible. I particularly enjoyed the ginger beer. My lunch special was more than I could eat.

This is an easy place to pop in by yourself and get welcoming service from Becky at the bar. The beer list is great. Food was typical bar food. Nothing fancy, but basically what I would expect, and a great deal at happy hour.

Awful. We went here in search of local brews and some good food. We walk in and the hostess was pleasant but we chose to sit at the bar. The bartender puts some menus down, no smile, that’s fine. I try to order some flights...More

We wanted just a quiet setting after the big crowd at the folk festival in Richmond and we decided to stop for a dessert, a nice drink and maybe an appetizer! If only could rate it with a -* I will do it! The cocktail...More

Really unique facility just off the canal. The negative is parking.... but well worth the walk if you are staying downtown. However, once here, they have a great draft beer list, friendly service and a great atmosphere. Recently, stopping by for Happy Hour, we enjoyed...More

First time visiting Southern Railway. I wanted to take my father-in-law to a few breweries downtown and also have lunch. As many of the lower reviews stated, the first impression at the door is less than stellar. We entered through the back and stood there...More
