Historic building with 4 lane bowling alley and billiard tables. Good selection of craft beers. Food we had was ordinary - nothing special. Service was good.

Even know his place has been here for years, I've never been before. We just had drinks, but the food looked good and the bowling seems like it would be fun. Good service and just an overall good time.

Excellent pub grub and great al fresco dining. Also, the handset bowling lanes are fun ($10 bucks tip in the finger hole of a bowling ball will usually get you a strike...)

Southport Lanes & Billiards is a friendly neighborhood bar with a rich history. Built in the 1900s as an original Schlitz pub, Southport celebrates its beer history with over 30 craft beers on draft. Southport's private bowling and billiards rooms are great for special occasions or just relaxing evenings.
