First time there even though I live only a few mins away. Pleasantly surprised by the food. The starters of Nashville hot chicken tenders and deviled eggs were awesome. The marrow burger was fantastic and perfectly cooked. I’d say the fries needed another couple minutes of cook time TJ get them crispy, but that’s nitpicking. Add in the ability to bring your own wine for a $25 corkage fee and the excellent spacing indoors during COVID, and I will def be back. Soon.

We had a wonderful experience at Masons social, we had the Masons punch and a glass of Chardonnay which were both great. We ordered the fried chicken and the Mason burger, the fried chicken was very moist inside with the breading being nice and crisp. The burger and fries were excellent as well we Weill definitely be back!

My experience was okay, the decor and atmosphere was very nice. The restaurant is clean and socially distant. The food, however, was just okay. The manager did ask for our feedback and promised to address the issues with the food. The service was good so I would return to try the food again.

The food was good! The wait staff was awesome. My only down fall was fried foods are cooked in the same oil as shellfish which presented an issue. But all in all it was nice.

Birthday brunch. I went for the Fruitty Pebbles French Toast and it did not disappoint. The lox and crab cake Benedict were also delicious. My only complaint is that I ordered the cheese omelette from the menu and I was brought back an omelette with two cheese slices on top. When I informed my waiter I wanted the omelette from the menu I was brought back the same omelette with more cheese melted on top. That omelette was unacceptable but everything else was great.

We sat on the patio, as the safest option. Unfortunately happy hour specials were not offered on patio, only with inside (riskier) seating where patrons did not appear to be distancing. Staff graciously moved heaters to accommodate us. The Tacos and the Fried Green Tomatoes were delicious & our server Micah was excellent.

Tremendous service. Thanks Jose! Very tasty food. Terrific libations. The place felt cavernous on a Thursday night. The environment is REALLY loud. One too many customers dressed like schlubs. (Yes — restaurants are partially to blame because the JOINT sets the expectation. Sorry not sorry).

A solid neighborhood go to that’s quiet and offers great cocktails and modern interpretations of classics. Service (attentiveness) needs a little work, even with covid. Reservations need to be made available for BOTH inside and outside.

Our waiter/service was not as pleasant as we had hoped for. When I asked, "Do you have any drink specials?" his short answer was, "No. We don't." I was expecting a follow-up, as an example, "...but we have such and such drinks are in season right now..." or a less complicated version would be, "I recommend this drink..." It was my family's first time at Mason Social, and perhaps my expectations were a bit too high. The general manager was very nice and even came over to chat with us. However, it is unlikely that we will return.

It was okay. I was a little disappointed when I asked for cheese to go with my pasta a little into my meal, and I watched the waitress bounce around socializing before I received it. She probably did, but she came back to tell us, “Sorry it took so long, there was an accident.” Ma’am, this is an open restaurant concept, and I can see you. The food did also mess with our stomachs a little, but I’m not sure if that was the quality of food, or if it was just a heavy meal. I’ve had better experiences at the restaurant, so I would be willing to give it a go again in hopes to repeat the better times I had before.

Been in several times, and service always sucks, the food is consistently mediocre and not worth the hassle. Each time we think maybe next time will be different. No longer. Last time was our last time. Only one of our visits was after the start of covid, so it’s not just a “covid thing.” Many better local options in Alexandria.

I went here for my birthday dinner and it was pretty nice, I enjoyed the location and the environment but I did wish that they had closed the doors or turn the heat up because it was a bit chilly inside. Drinks were good and the service was good, would recommend

We were seated immediately for our 10:15am reservation however, it took our waitress 15 minutes to come to our table and acknowledge us.

The food was mediocre, no wow factor. I received a lukewarm omelette and cold potatoes. I had to also fight off a swarm of flies while trying to eat. I couldn’t inform the waitress because she was no where to be found.

Once we were ready to go, we waited an additional 20 minutes for our waitress to check on us or at least offer the bill. She never showed. I had to walk into the restaurant and ask the host for my waitress and/or the bill.

I was excited about trying out this restaurant however with an experience as such, I won’t be back.
