Southpaw BBQ 


To our San Francisco Family:

It’s been a pleasure serving San Francisco for the past 8 years. At Southpaw, we have cultivated a talented and dedicated staff, built a strong relationship with our community, and loved having our guests and regulars become our friends and extended family over the years. We’ve expanded our reach in the San Francisco community through our BBQ, whiskey, and beer classes, our collaboration with local non-profits, our work with the SF Brewer’s Guild, and our participation in the Outside Lands festival with so many of our favorite peers in the restaurant industry.

We have come to a crossroad in our personal lives where it’s time to move onto other goals and dreams. We are starting families, growing other businesses, and moving to other parts of the Bay Area.

We can’t thank you enough for your support in making our dream of creating and running a beloved neighborhood brewpub a reality. Southpaw has always been a warm and welcoming place where friends could come together to share delicious southern BBQ while enjoying house brewed beer and an extensive working man’s whiskey program. We are forever grateful for not only your support, but sharing your lives with us. It’s what we’ve treasured most.

With love and gratitude,

~ Elizabeth Wells, Zack Smith, Ben Thorne, and the Southpaw staff

While our restaurant will be closing, we will be continuing to offer our delicious BBQ for delivery through our sister company, Sneaky’s BBQ.
