7th Street Social
Maybe our waitress was just having an off day but we had to flag her down to ask (for the 2nd time) for water and then refills for coffee (twice)! She also did not bother to explain their system for ordering a custom omelette (they leave papers with possible ingredients on the table and you check what you want and give it to the waitress). It was our first time there - we had no idea about the omelettes until another wait person tried to deliver omelettes for table next to us - to us! She also did not clear our plates promptly in case we wanted to re-visit the buffy for more so we sat with dirty plates in front us while we visited.
Very nice Mother's Day brunch.
Service was horrible. Server took our food order, never asked if we wanted drinks. We tracked her down and she acted surprised. She never came to ask how everything was. When we asked about dessert, she remembered one item vaguely, said she’d get a menu, which she never brought, but she placed an order for ice cream without my date asking. Then there is the door to the patio. It SLAMS every time it is used. It was a warmish evening so lots of people were on the patio BAM! all through dinner. Coupled with the horrible service, we will not return. It was not crowded; we had the main room to ourselves.
Stop in for dinner waited at the entrance to be seated no one came to seat us. My wife and her friend walked beyond the bar and was finally greeted and we sat down. We were given water and we asked a simple question. The waitress answered the question but never asked if we were antes a drink or anything. We sat for 15 minutes no one asked us a thing! We drank our water and walked out. We enjoyed our pizza 20 minutes away near our home. What a waste of driving time. I hope you have a better experience at 7 th street social than we had. This place will never cross my mind again as a place to eat
We had very nice seating for a group of 8, I’d go back with a group anytime.
Great value. Good food. Good service. Noisy in bar area.
It was a very basic place with friendly staff but moderate food and atmosphere that was overpriced. There are so many places in the Twin Cities with similar menus and styles that are so much better.
Greeted / seated immediately at door on busy Fri nite. Had a res thru Open Table. Very pleasant staff, helpful with drink order and when asking about size of portions. Food arrived very quickly and hot! Took half a salad home due to large portion size. Great value on Fri fish fry, other items seem reasonably priced. Nice island bar. We had small table near front door so a bit drafty, but it was fine. Will be back again. Good experience.
Busy Fri night for fish fry so service a little slow getting second drinks. Great fish and tartar sauce but food was lukewarm and cold before done. The potato chips were brown, way over fried and french fries also over fried but not as bad as chips. Liked the variety on the menu. Going to give it one more try. Hopefully the restaurant will get the feedback so the can improve and keep people's business coming back.
Our visit did not start well. We had a 6:30 reservation and arrived at 6:25. The Hostess never consulted the reservations list and sat 2 walk in tables in front us before we could check in. We then had to wait for 15 minutes in the bar until a table cleared and she cleaned it. Our server was friendly but was late to the table because the hostess never told her that we were seated in her section.
There are NO desserts on the menu. How do you have a full service restaurant with NO desserts?
We decided to try this place for Friday fish fry after the positive review in the StarTribune. I was so glad to see they accepted reservations so I made them and it was a good thing to have with all the people who showed up! The hostess and server were both very friendly and efficient given how very busy it was. The place has a nice mixture of families and friends for a nice neighborhood vibe and energy. I look forward to returning and checking out the rest of the menu...
Great food and service as always. The greek salad at last visit was very satisfying with very fresh ingredients. The Reuben sandwhich is always a favorite!
The service was horrible!!! The bartender shouldn't have as many tables as she did when it's super busy!
The food was decent - liked the house made potato chips and French fries. The ambience was not nice. Broken window with exposed shards of glass. Seemed hazardous. Dirty walls, dirty menus.
Great service, strong drinks, and good service. Ample parking
Loved that there was a vegan option (burger) and the fish and chips is outstanding per my dinner partner. It was very loud but also a Friday so....to be expected. Homemade dressing is out of this world! No hesitation to come back again!
We stopped in last Friday night for the fish fry. We've been to a lot of different places during Lent. The fish was excellent, the portions were perfect and you can't beat the price. The only one in our group that had a hard time finding something she liked was a 12 yr old. She went with the soup. :) We will be back.
I enjoyed this place. We went for friday fish fry. Fish was good, although ppl in my group thought the pieces were small, it was cooked right and tasted good:) service was good at the table but they probably needed a second bartender, i liked the atmosphere and price was right at only $10.
The food was amazing. Great selection. Would have liked all drink prices to be on the menu. We were unaware that we would be paying so much for our drinks.
Unfortunately we will not be coming back here. We had a table of 16, which they had plenty of warning about, yet still gave us one server, who could not handle a large group.
We had to look for her several times in order to get a soda refilled or cream for the coffee. At least 4 people wanted a second Bloody Mary but never had an opportunity to ask. Getting a pot of coffee took time.
The food came out very scattered, some folks were done while others waited for food. The food itself was just okay. Some terrible and some good. The fish got good reviews. While a burger was missing the majority of toppings. The potatoes were rock hard and cold and the hollandaise was literally ice cold. It was all quite unfortunate.
I do understand larger groups are hard, but with planning should be manageable. My suggestion is to not take large groups at all. Also, make sure you really look to see what you’re serving.
Great food and a fun atmosphere. Deserts are huge and plenty to share!
First time there and would not be going back. Sat us next to the front door which was really cold when it open, so we moved ourselves to another table. Slow service, food was lacking flavor, soggy fish basket. High bill for what we ordered. Only good thing was the company I was with.
Good service but very mediocre, somewhat over-cooked food. Feels more like a bar than a restaurant.
How is this place even open for business?! We were there at 7:30PM on a Saturday and there was one other table in the dining room and one person in the bar. I should have known it was bad news when we walked in the door and no one walked up to seat us. Three people walked by and said “Hi” and walked away. The staff knows nothing about the menu. If you ask them a question about the dinner menu or the drink menu they tell you “I like everything” and that’s it. Based off our food, I doubt they like everything. A member of our party asked if they have a specialty and the server responded they are known for their fish and chips. Sure, maybe they’re known for it because it’s that terrible. The breading was thick, greasy, and and had no seasoning (so thick it didn’t really fry all the way). The fries were greasy and overcooked. All of the food we ordered was extremely under seasoned and bland. At one point in the evening our server disappeared for over half an hour, so we were unable to order more drinks. By the time she finally came back around we were over it and just wanted to leave. I can’t imagine this place is going to be open much longer. Poor service and less than mediocre food is a recipe for disaster. Plus, the place is filthy. The wall of our booth was covered in stains and the table was sticky. We will never be back.
Sorry to see so many negative reviews. We’ve been here a number of times and the food and service have been very good. I really like the shrimp tacos, the wait staff have been very nice and efficient, and it’s usually quiet enough to have a conversation without screaming at each other. We will be back - hope it’s still open!
We dined at lunchtime. Fairly quiet. There was just one server acting as bartender and server. There was a bit of a lunch crowd so we did need to nudge another staff person to bring us our food as we saw our lunch sitting under the lights ready to be delivered to the table. The food was good and a nice to place to grab a bite to eat.
Our food was great and our server was extremely nice.
Wine very good fish special ok
Very welcoming for families
Our experience there was wonderful. What made the experience wonderful was our server. Unfortunately, I don't remember his name. However, he was very courteous while we kept him busy with app and drink orders as our group sporadically arrived. He was very pleasant to deal with us both professionally and personally. The apps and drinks were also very good and they all arrived to our table in record time. We really enjoyed our experience there and will definitely be back.
Love 7th Street Social. Friendly waitstaff, great menu well executed.
Cold soggy fish and chips.
Server was nice but service was exceedingly slow for a night when they were not busy. Food was ok, however pork burger seemed under cooked. We wondered if they rushed it because after 45 minutes we asked about our food. Poutin was good.
Would have been a five star all around but we had to sit at a table by the door... brrr! Will definitely be back though!
Also a great location if you're coming or going from MSP airport.
Outstanding service and overall dining experience. This was my first time at the establishment but I will be back again!
Food was great, service was incredibly slow. Granted we were a group of 8, however we were the only diners in the entire back room.
The food was not good at all! The saving grace was the cheap happy hour drinks and the great service.
We went for trivia night. It was fun and the food was good.
We’ve been to 7th Street Social several times as a family and have always enjoyed it. Service can be slow but it’s a pretty consistent place.
