Southside is available for all private events, including but not limited to birthday parties, communions/confirmations, retirements, funeral repass and memorials, baptisms, bar or bat mitzvah, rehearsal dinners, or showers as well as fundraisers and corporate gatherings. 

Those hosting a party at Southside can decorate to suit their needs or theme as well as customize the menu to accommodate their guests. Additionally, although closed on Mondays, Southside will open to accommodate a part of 10 or more. 

“We cater to you and your guests,” said Broehl, adding, “Our menus can be tweaked to accommodate food preferences and allergies and will work to meet requests.”

Each of the restaurant’s three party menus features an appetizer, salad, and choice of main entrée, including chicken, fish, steak, or vegetarian along with soda, coffee and tea. Party packages range from $22 to $30 per person, depending on the selected dishes, and customers can also customize menu options to suit their party needs as well as add dessert and beer and wine. Children’s options are also available. 

Whether a private party, a celebratory dinner, or a family night out, Broehl said the goal at Southside is to provide a casual, family-friendly atmosphere where guests feel comfortable and not rushed. 

“We want our guests to enjoy being here and don't want them to feel rushed or pushed out the door. We want people to feel welcome and comfortable, like they are home except without the cleanup. That has been out goal since day one,” said Broehl.

Open Tuesday through Sunday, Southside boasts both a private, bar fully stocked with top-shelf liquor as well as a private dining area. In addition to a raw bar that includes always fresh, never frozen items, the restaurant features a brick oven and offers an extensive menu of seafood, beef, chicken, pork, and pasta dishes along with soups, appetizers and salads all prepared by Southside’s professional and experienced chefs.
