Terrible ... waiter was practically ignoring us and took forever to get us our drinks (if we only have 90 mins .. service should be quick) acted like we weren’t even there. The food was pretty gross and kind of cold when it got to our table. Won’t be returning
Great overall experience! Strange to be there during lunch and be loudly listening to early 20's trap songs? Don't get me wrong - those are great songs. Just weird pairing for the rest of the classier vibe and time of day. Could have just been a one time thing, not sure. Overall - amazing good and great service!
Good service, good food and a pretty good value for your money. Nothing fancy, but a good option in the Copley area. The hostess was very nice and accommodating.
For the burgers :)
A great experience all around! We are Bostonians and LOVE brunch; often times we venture outside of our city to explore restaurants. This has been challenging for us due to COVID as we want to retain our negative status. We also stayed away from Back Bay restaurants as the area is always crowded and noisy. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience at the Back Bay Social Club. Friendly environment, excellent safety measures, great cuisine and service; menu reasonably priced. I endorse the banana foster!!! BBSC is now in rotation for one of our brunch favorites!
The drinks were so good! The food was also very good, but they seemed a bit short staffed. Definitely would recommend for a casual time!
Amazing atmosphere! Def going back, great service, awesome time
We had a really nice lunch during our Birthday Weekend Celebration. The restaurant was quiet so we go to spend a lot of time talking to Carly who was behind the Bar. She was very attentive, provided great service and great recommendations. Food was Excellent. Will definitely go again!
Food was delicious. They had NYE party stuff in the table for us to wear. Very good time
The old fashion is the best drink. The veggie burger with regular fries was A+.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was great, just a little over priced for the value of the food.
Great food, great service and great location. They were really clean and had great protocols
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.
