Totally blew away my expectations!
This place is known for its late night scene, which is why until now we'd never tried it for dinner. We Reid it early in the season (April) and early in the evening, and while it was pretty empty, we loved the experience. The food is really good -- try the crab cake; it's all crab -- and the service was sweet and attentive. far from being a place with late night bar munches, this is a a real restaurant with great food. We can't wait to return!

Amazing Food and Hamptons Hot Spot
Not only is this one of THE Hamptons hot spots, but much to my surprise, the food is outstanding! We had the tuna and the short ribs and both were divine! It is great to start a night with fine dining and then have the place turn into one the hottest clubs of the Hamptons! And I am very excited to learn that it will continue to be open through December! Do not miss the opportunity to eat here just because you think it is a place to dance, you will be short changing yourself!

Enjoyed this one tremendously!
Dined here 2x during restaurant week. First with some girlfriends and we enjoyed it so much I had to bring my husband back. Not only is the restauant beautifully designed but the food was delicious, creative and quite generously portioned. Great vegetarian options. Service was friendly and personel. Will be back for sure.

We wanted to go to The Social Club for our Anniversary as our son Robby Despres is getting
married there on May 11th. Dinner was excellent, as was the service. We would definitely
go back for dinner again.

I had the best pasta dish I have ever had at a restaurant. Lobster Capellini--a must! And the veal chop was the best-looking dish! The salads were ok. The apps were fine. The wine menu could use some sprucing up. But the entrees were outstanding.

We were a party of 6 dining
We were a party of 6 dining at 6.30 pm on a mid-week. We had visited before for restaurant week and were very impressed with the food so we invited some friends to join us. The food and service were great. We ordered Oysters, Zucchini chips, crab cake, Caesar salad, and mussels as appetizers. All were delicious, fresh and well prepared. Main courses ranged from the short ribs (eaten with a fork they were so tender), mahi mahi, steak and the chicken. All these choices were from a prix fix menu and there were lots of other choices too. The drinks were good sized pours and were served quickly and with a smile.
Overall, highly recommended, especially earlier in the night for us older folks! :-)

We sat outside in the large back yard which later becomes a club. This was a nice change on a warm summer night.
The food and service were very good. Only one complaint out of 6 for the food and that was with the duck- it was very gamey.

We had a delicious dinner at 9 and were hoping the dancing got started by 10:30, but was told the club heated up around 11:30. So we didn't stay to experience that. But dinner was great .

Surprised how good
After reading a number of reviews about how pretentious the scene at this location was I was pleasantly surprised to find that the restaurant, at least, is a real gem. We dined just prior to attending the opening party for Art Southampton. Accordingly, I can't say how the late night club scene is but the restaurant itself has all the attributes you could possibly want for a refined & enjoyable dining experience. The food was exceptional, the service was exemplary, the ambience was delightful and the restaurant itself was gorgeous.
We will definitely be back.

Excellent Sunday evening prix-fixe including oysters for the first course at no additional charge.
Excellent wine list. Duck breast superb. Desserts uninspired and disappointing. Otherwise an excellent meal.

A foodies dream.
I decided on an early date night with the hubby and as we had not yet tried this local treasure, we went. We were in no way disappointed. As we arrived early, we avoided the night time bar scene so it was quiet with only thw surround sound soothing tunes in the background. The Duck and Filet were the absolute best ever. The ambience is classy, romantic and very Southamptonesque. The service could not have been better. We also learned that we could bring our children to dine with us when a family came in to dine. An early dinner hour along with outdoor dining would be recommended if dining with children. I could really go on and on about just how perfect our meals were but am limited in this review. Oh! Don't forget the doughnut dessert.

Quiet Thursday dinner
The place was pretty quiet on Thursday night on the patio (and there was no one inside). I hear it is packed on Fri/Sat. The food was very good and you get generous portions. At 3 courses for $45 it is a nice break from the high cost of many other nearby restaurants. The patio s very nice and service was very attentive.

Mikey Hollywood thumbs up SSC!!!
Great dining, upscale socialites with dancing and lounge areas. Ambiance flavored with a true Southampton feel. Foodies will not be disappointed and the service is highly attentive. The dining tables and bottle service tables transition should be noted. SSC rises to the occasion and it will come with a steep cost. Nevertheless, life is short ...so make it a point to enjoy the elitous experience.

Southampton Social Club
Quite an interesting place complete with private cabanas for discreet outdoor dining. Very good food.

best off season
We went on a Thursday in September with a 7:45 res. There were 2 other tables with diners. The service was pleasant but not in your face, and unlike in season, it was quiet and leisurely paced. You cannot beat their prix fixe! Portions were full sized and nicely prepared. Can't agree with many of the negative reviews about tiny portions. I couldn't finish my entrée or desert - and I'm not a skinny Hamptonite - just a normal sized North Forker. We'll definitely go back.

Once again, great meal
We go to dine here early (6PM) so it is sometimes quieter at that time. In the Fall they do a price fixed, 3 course menu which is an outstanding deal, I think it is all night Thursday, and until 7 on Friday. Almost everything on the regular menu is available, other items at a small supplement. They are open Th/F/ Sat only in the Fall. Well worth a trip. My wife and I ate really well here again. Great job guys!
