Back Bay Social Club
Nice brunch outside!
Perfect for sunday
Had such an amazing meal and service! Had the mussels and Steak Frites with a Nice Goose Island Sofie on draft and their Fall Margarita, was a great experience overall!
We ordered clam chowder, chicken wings, and Kobe meatloaf. The clam chowder was good. The rest of the food was disappointing. We returned the chicken wings to the kitchen - it was that bad. Service was good.
I liked back bay social because the food was amazing and the service was great. overall great experience.
I had the steak frites and it wasn't good. It tasted...weird. I also had the hummus appetizer and the bread was like burnt toast. The server was good but he was overloaded and was moving around so quickly that you literally had to flag him or jump in front of him to get his attention. Not his fault, he was doing the best he could with a full patio.
My boyfriend and I did NOT enjoy this restaurant. First off the menu on here isn’t the menu you get. The menu they actually have is literally like 15 things max. They have only 2 types of pizzas to choose from and only one type of wings. We ordered plain wings because the ones they have didn’t sound great and a pizza. The server forgot our pizza and it was already to late to order another because kitchen closed. He did seem apologetic but we left a restaurant STARVING. We had to stop somewhere else to get pizza slices. I would never go back.
Food was mediocre and the tables outside were too close together
Had not been here in a very long time but was looking forward to it because I had had one of the most delicious burgers I had ever tasted. The outdoor seating was very nice and it felt safe. The staff is friendly and helpful. Sorry to say the food was mediocre at best. My nicoise salad was a nice size but was essentially had no taste. One of our party ordered the cod and it turned out to be over cooked and rubbery. The 3 pizzas our party ordered were ok but the crusts on all of them were not really cooked enough-should have been golden brown and crispy. And finally the burger I had bragged about — ok but not what I had remembered. We will probably not return anytime soon nor can I recommend you to friends, etc. I hope you will take this review in the spirit that is meant—as a learning tool to help improve your food.
Snooby workers. Wouldn’t recommend
We had an excellent waiter and bartender, and the food was fantastic! Definitely come for the weekend brunch, and you've gotta get an Espresso Martini.
Great mojo wings
Great place, good food and perfect service. A real classic in Boston
The food was so delicious and good service.😉 Try the salmon with broccoli.
I loved the service and the food.
Great ambience outdoors and indoors. Great menu with lots of options - steak tips are absolutely delicious! Service was fantastic overall; our server was balancing multiple tables and was still very attentive and friendly, one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in Boston. Can’t wait to go back!
The food was good, and they were very attentive. The outdoor seating was expanded, which was helpful for distancing
Food was very good and staff was very friendly. Outdoor seating was very cute but a little loud as it is right next to the main road on Boylston. Highly recommend getting the steak tips
Had a fantastic time! The staff, especially Tyler the bartender were excellent. The food and drinks were great! Will definitely be back.
Have always loved this place and the new outdoor seating was great. Separation from the street but still got the ambiance, and the food and drinks were delicious! BB social never disappoints :)
Hostess and waitress were both so nice, food was fast and delicious! Bill added up real fast though, especially the drinks.
1 of the most pleasurable dining experiences we’ve ever had. Of course the food was very good, but it was the exceptional service that made it so memorable. From the moment we arrived Kaitlin made us feel relaxed and comfortable. She spoiled us w/ exceptional service, tending to our every need. Her spirit is infectious. Cannot wait to be waited on by her again....
I really just love this place! Even in quarantine their food was absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to anyone. The brunch is out of this world, packed full of flavor and deliciousness.
Awesome service during a challenging morning for the restaurant. We will be back for sure!
Very Loud. Hard to converse without yelling. Food was below average. With so many other dining choices in Boston, I won’t be back.
Great food and great drinks. I'd definitely go back.
Amazing service! We mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and the hostess brought us over a mimosa. So sweet!!
The service was unbearable. We watched our waiter roll silverware for 15 minutes while we were waiting for our check. We asked for multiple waters and drinks and never received them.
Very chill atmosphere, picked as the night went on, it was a friday. Hostess and waitstaff were very lovely. Drinks were great, food for the most part was really good. A bit of a consistency issue with the fish and chips, one piece cooked perfectly, the other piece super gummy and heavy on the breading. Would opt for burger or pizza next time. Also, one of the folks in our party requested the remainder of their meal wrapped and the busser promptly dumped it into a dirty plate, half of a steak dinner, they were disappointed about that. Other than those items, I'd recommend.
Great food. Everyone loved their meals. Best Brussels sprouts ever!
Great atmosphere, menu options, great service.
The house front hostess was the most energetic and fun person ever! She made everyone in our party feel so welcomed and made us laugh.
Drinks were great, food was great
Music was a bit loud but a great time
Based on websites, I thought this place was more a restaurant than a pub. Disappointed my wife for valentines lunch
enjoyed this restaurant very much. My only problem, was the amount of cole slaw that accompanied the fish and chips. Cole slaw should not even be included, if it is consumed entirely w/ 1-2 bites. But the fish was excellent.
This is fair bar food. Good service and rather noisy, even in the corner. We had the burger, good but overpriced, fries, tasty, fired chicken sandwich I would not recommend and fish and chips satisfactory.
Our waitress was the sweetest woman ever. Loved our time spent there.
Service was decent and friendly. Food was just ok. Not bad, but not anything special. The buffalo cauliflower app was really good. The steak dishes were ok. It was too loud to hear each other talk. This was initially just because the music was turned up too loud, not because of other guests.
Food was quite mediocre and very heavy. There were so few healthy options, I ended up just ordering a burger and sweet potato fries. Though good, they were nothing to write home about - and the kids' pizza could have taken a lesson from some quick service places in my neighborhood. It's 2020! Time to refresh the menu with some tasty, nutrient rich options, reasonable portion sizes, and cleaner ingredient profile. All in all, we appreciated the excellent location but won't be going back.
The burger was excellent and staff and management were great!
Had a reservation for a large group on a Saturday night. Before the weekend I stopped by the restaurant and talked to the host to make sure everything was all set. When we got to the restaurant the table was not ready and the host gave us the reason that the parties before us are taking longer than expected to leave and they can’t just kick them out of their table. Okay, not that big of a deal but we didn’t realize how long we would be waiting. After 45 minutes of waiting, the staff eventually scrapped together some high top tables in the bar area for our party. Got seated and again waited and waited and waited for someone to come take our drink order. For our “inconvenience” they served us a party size Moscow mule, which we didn’t order. Would rather have just got served the drinks we wanted. When the food came out they forgot an entire meal so one person ate 20 minutes after the rest of us. Overall it was a terrible experience. Not that we were looking for free food but they didn’t even comp anything. Definitely not going back.
