Good food and service in a great location
This is a bar , and should be seen as such—bouncer at the door, drinks, loud music, youngish professional crowd. Food is an afterthought. Restroom cleanliness iffy. Tables on street, but doesn’t look as of the patio/curb area has been swept in some time. Go for a bar experience, not for dining.
Great spot for breakfast! The tots dishes are delicious! Service was excellent!
Overall a good time!
Everyone in my party ordered burgers and they did not disappoint. Juicy and flavorful. Perfect amount of fries too!
Enjoyed the evening at an outdoor table. Food was very good we had the chicken and waffles delicious! Also had the prosciutto white pizza, yum. Would definitely come back 😃
It was so, so. Like the saying goes: Nothing to write home about.
The vibe of the restaurant was great, but the wait time and the food were subpar. Arrived for brunch at 11am and did not have food until 12pm, while many other people around us who arrived later than us had their food much quicker. For the price, I expected much better quality, but the food was similar to what I would expect at a run-of-the-mill diner. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.
Great food and atmosphere. Meatloaf sandwich was outstanding!
Our waiter was incredible and so attentive!!! And food was even better. And you can’t beat the prices!!
I arrived by the time I did the reservation....I've been waiting for more than 35 minutes until someone could take care of our order...after we ordered the drinks he said we got only 5 minutes to order the food bc the kitchen was closing....
Never gonna come back
Amazing food!!! Sat outside and had great views while eating.
It is very loud. Really a bar that serves food. Food was good, but not a place to eat and have a conversation.
Delicious, unexpected brunch! Monte Cristo sandwich was fabulous and the brunch potatoes are to die for!
This seems like a great place for big groups, but it wasn't the brunch experience I was hoping for. It was fine, but nothing was very impressive. Seemed like the best sellers were "bucket of mimosas" and "tots" so should have known what I was getting into
Very loud atmosphere. Music was way too loud. The restaurant is also understaffed. Had to wait 15 minutes for a waiter to come by to take our order. Drinks and food were good, but not great. Good value for the price though.
Food was so delicious!!! Service was also extremely fast for a Saturday night. We were in and out quickly. We loved every item we ordered.
Playlist could use some work, would recommend more Bon Jovi
Great place to grab a drink with friends! We celebrated the end of the state of emergency here and they had room for our party of 12 with same-day notice. Great drinks and good service, and the pizza was nice as well.
We live in the area and decided to give the social club a try. The food is as horrible. Do not waste you time or money. The service was extremely slow and our server never came back. We had to flag her down to order, get ketchup, and for the check. Worst service and food I have had in a very long time
Delicious food and great service! Outdoor dining was comfortable and speedy.
Great food and good vibes!
Food was really good but very small portions
Ate on the outdoor patio and the restaurant had good food for the price, great drinks, and a friendly server.
Too loud and food only mediocre. Service poor - bartender made the drink he waited, not what I ordered
I went for my 21st birthday with my family, the waitress was very nice and she made sure everything was good. We made a reservation for Sunday morning and glad we did since there was a line outside before they even opened! The food was perfect for a nice Sunday morning brunch. The ambiance inside was very mellow as it was a little dark but the other parties kept the place nice and energetic.
We had a post pandemic meal with old friends at Back Bay Social. We tried sitting on the patio but it was windy so we sat inside. Very cozy and comfortable in a booth. We had drinks and a full dinner. The food was good ; the truffle fries were delicious, the fish and chips and veggie burger were good, and we loved the crepe brûlée. Our waitress was helpful and upbeat but never before have we been to a restaurant that does not serve coffee. Kind of surprising. I almost asked if someone on the staff could walk down the block to Dunkin so we could have some coffee with dessert.
Overall, it was a nice meal.
Good food good drinks good atmosphere
Our food took a very long time, they also forgot one of or orders so we had to wait extra long for it. The omelets we had ordered were not warm so it had been clear that the food was sitting out for a while before it was delivered to our table. Additionally, they forgot to add avocado on one of our breakfast sandwiches. However, the waitress was very accommodating and took off the price of the missing avocado and the forgotten order. The food was delicious though!
Came for drinks. Had some small snacks as required by the state right now in order to have drinks. Recommend this place!
We chose this restaurant for our 25th anniversary brunch. I indicated that it was for an anniversary when booking the table. When we arrived, they told us our table was ready, directly behind us. It was just inside the door, across from the host podium and pushed up against the bar. Most of the restaurant was empty. We asked for a different table and both the hostess and manager looked confused. The hostess didn’t say anything just walked away from us. She turned around to see if we were following her so we did. The waitstaff was mediocre and the food was very good. There was no mention of our anniversary and absolutely no special treatment. It felt as though the entire staff was hung over on a Sunday morning and just didn’t want to be there.
Service and music playlist were fantastic. Brunch and drink menus were limited.
I’m extremely disappointed. I made a reservation for outdoor seating for brunch for two people- and specifically said celebrating a graduation. We got there few minutes before our 1pm reservation- there were 4 tables outside that had no guests. A man told me that they couldn’t accommodate us outside but would try to call a couple of groups to see if they’d be coming for their reservation. So, they honored their outdoor requests and not mine? Because it was only 2 of us versus 2 larger groups? We ended up leaving our table inside to go across the street to a different restaurant- where I dropped $200, $200 of which you lost out on. In the scheme of things, $200 may or may not be a lot for you- but we have been coming to back bay social for a long time as a fav spot of ours, and now this man has actually ruined our experience and we won’t be coming back. On top of it all he was rude, and barely tried to accommodate anything. Any other day I would have been annoyed, but today- we had a sister’s day planned to celebrating a doctoral graduation, and all we wanted to do was go to a fab spot for brunch. We won’t be returning. Your team needs better customer service skills- for the restaurant’s sake let’s hope the man who attended to us isn’t your manager. Zero people skills. I guess now we found another great brunch spot with excellent service, so I thank you for that atleast.
Downstairs was low lighting but a little too dark. Service was very slow, only 1 person waiting tables for entire downstairs, felt bad for her. Overall good but could have been better.
Always have a good time here. Food was delicious. Glad to see it was busy.
My husband and I were pretty excited to check this place out. It was not busy when we arrived at about 7pm ish. Overall it was an ok experience. The food was pretty good, but I think if BBSC added a little table decor /centerpiece (something to jazz up the pub feel) and do a better job having the table set up before we are sat, it would improve the overall ambience. The age of most of the customers were in the 20 plus range so to appeal to customers who live in the Back Bay location in the 50 plus range, its important to have napkins/fork/knives etc delivered to the table, water offered, before we get our food delivered. It would not take much to make these changes, and get this place to be packed just like American Joes down the road. I would recommend to a friend only if some changes were made.
Great, as usual! Looking forward to the next time.
Food was decent, service was terrible
The loaded Tator tots were my favorite things ever. So easy to want to go again
Good food drinks in a casual low lit setting, I would return
