The prices seemed high. The scallops and shrimp risotto would be better called pilaf. This entree had 2 shrimp and 2 scallops. The music was too loud in the dining area. The penne dish with shrimp, chicken and chorizo was tasty.

The food was good but the service was very, very slow. Took an hour and a half to get our food. The waitress kept apologizing but it was still a really long wait. The ambiance was ok, nothing special. I probably wouldn’t go back becasue we ended up being there for over 2 hours, which is just too long for a casual dinner.

Good service. Some of the best french fries in the area. Raw middle necks were on the small side and fairly gritty. Fried shrimp overbreaded/overcooked.

Had a seafood salad. Tasty but very little crab and four slices of scallops. Had I known that, I would have ordered a piece of salmon or shrimp.

Had dinner with friends… we were particularly impressed with our server (Andra). She was attentive and friendly, even though she was very busy. The noise level made it difficult to hear her and she had to repeat the specials list a few times. Not her fault, since we also had to speak up to carry on a conversation. Still, we will definitely be back… probably on a weeknight

ordered the ahi tuna salad for $20. I was starving afterwards. The tuna was sliced so thin it was almost translucent so not filling at all. The rest was just lettuce. Not worth it. Another friend of mine also ordered the exact same dish and called me saying how starving she was and how ridiculous it was that we spent so much for nothing. We are both petite women who don't eat big meals but this was seriously not even close to a meal. It really is a shame because the restaurant is so cute inside and our service was good but it's not going to make it if you serve that.

WOW! Unbelievable dining experience from start to finish. We were greeted by a friendly guy who was no our waiter but made us feel special. Our server Alberto was genuine and knowledgeable about the menu. Alberto accurately took our order and another server delivered our food. Alberto checked back after just a few bites. Our meals were perfect. Our drinks were phenomenal. We are so thrilled to have another restaurant to be able to call our favorite. As locals for several years, these guys get it. They understand how important building relationships are and you can tell they are trained to work as a team. Every person in the building seemed to be making an impact. I often have to wait for service at nearby restaurants or wave down another server but because they were working as a team at Atlantic Social that was not the case. GET THE CHOWDER! Also the cheesecake was awesome!

Had high expectations for Atlantic Social as its parent restaurant is Big Fish Grill. Unfortunately, It is the neglected step child of BFG; salads are not well executed, no vegetarian options (contrary to online menus); and thoughtlessly composed entrees.

Dinner was a big disappointment for our party of six with a final bill tipping $250.00. Never again unless BFG comes up with something more compelling.

So sad for AS.

While the food was just okay, the service was excellent. Soup was served warm, not hot. Shellfish did not all open properly and some that did was sandy. Albert was an outstanding server though, and he made an otherwise mediocre experience worthwhile.

As a local I wouldn’t go there again. The server wasn’t very attentive she forgot a few things when I asked. My mother ordered half a dozen oysters for $2.50 each definitely was not worth that price they were small and looked dry. My fiancé and I ordered the jalapeño crab queso dip it tasted like Tostitos queso dip with crab in it. Definitely didn’t give you enough pretzels for the bowl that they gave you of that dip. My mother and I order the two different lobster rolls they were both very bland and buns were over toasted. My fiancé order of the marinated steak taco and The meat was very dry the only thing that he said was good was the pickled cabbage that was on it. After everything was said done at the restaurant we left and my fiancé pointed out it’s like a Chick-fil-A façade with the quality food of McDonald’s.

It was ok but for the prices, there are way better choices. It took quite a while to get our drinks, and the place was less than 1/2 full. Food was ok but nothing special. Lobster roll a bit skimpy for $26. Ambiance feels a bit sterile/cheap dining. Won’t be returning.

The service and food was great. The drinks were outstanding. However, the background rock music did not add to the dining experience. The design is the restaurant is all hard surfaces which makes for a noisy restaurant.

What an experience! We found this spot driving down Coastal HWY and we are so glad that we stopped in. We ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes with Lump Crab and the Mango Margarita to start. We later shared the lobster flatbread and the mixed grill. Both wonderful! At the end of the meal our server surprised us with a chocolate chip cookie that was warm and gooey for my Fiance's birthday. What a joy & a great way to end out summer. Highly recommend requesting Rosa or Jonathan!

Ok we have eaten here several times and I am loving this place more and more. Seems like my favorite thing to do is sit at the bar and chit-chat with the friendly staff. Drinks most definitely are alway good. Service is also very good. I liked the steamed clams very much, fresh and good. I also loved the Brussels sprouts Caesar with the grilled shrimp - perfect! Fried green tomatoes appetizer is good, although I don’t need all the hot peppers on top. Deviled eggs with crab also good. We have had other entrees that were also good - I would not reorder some of them because they were good, but not great. There are certain items I like better. Overall this is a repeat place for us. Thanks!

We live in Rehoboth, and this was our first visit to Atlantic Social. We will not return given all the other great restaurants to choose from.

$22 Chesapeake seafood entree salads that my husband and I ordered were disappointing. Basically an appetizer portion (very little salad greens that were spread across a plate), with Two scallops sliced crosswise to look like 4 scallops, and a sprinkling of crabmeat. Corn, and grapefruit slices were fresh. We ordered a side of fries quickly after salads delivered as we knew we would still be hungry.

Our son ordered steak frites which he enjoyed.

Service was slow.

Food for thought.
Love the place. Been here 4 times and each time its cold inside. Tonight I almost decided not to come. We walked in and it was very cold.

Just a thought that management should monitor temp
I’m not the only person who agrees. Even the staff brings clothing to work due to this.


Yes I was In the restaurant at business of this type for 15 years.

Unbelievable service! We called just a few hours to get a table for a small gathering after arriving to town later than expected. We were able to get in at 8pm for a party of 8 people. Jonathan answered the phone with a smiling voice, happy to make the reservation, and even was assigned out table to serve. We loved the skewers, crab cake, and green tomatoes! We are already thinking about returning next summer!

First of all WOW! What a transformation from an old Ruby Tuesday! Service was excellent! From start to finish we were in all of the service provided from a busy staff. Everyone went out of their way to make us feel special for my friends Birthday Party. We were able to sit next to open windows which made us feel extra safe (even though we're vaccinated). Food was FRESH! We thoroughly enjoyed the Seafood Salad, Crab Deviled Eggs, Pork Chop, and the Stuffed Rockfish on special! We cannot wait to come back with family later in the month! Ask for Jonathan, Brittany, or Rosali!

Service was bad, slow and lacked enthusiasm. Drink service was even slower than food service. My protein was cooked perfectly but had no seasoning. My veg was over cooked and the lemon caper sauce was missing completely and when we inquired we were brought something that neither lemon or caper flavored. My plate arrived to the table 5 minutes before the other 3 entrees. We’ve tried this place 3 times now and they can’t seem to get it all together.

I want to start by saying they are definitely understaffed. We had a 7:30 reservation and we were told that there would be a 20 minute wait. I suggested that they should have called to let us know. So we had a drink and waited.
The food was good, some dishes better than others. The portions were small.
One thing that really bothered me was that when the bill came, it was not itemized, just a regular copy.
I don’t think we’d be going back.
