I was surprised I needed a reservation but made one anyway. That worked out well. I was nnoyed with seating, they had us right by the serving station so it was loud and clattery which colored everything for us.

Food was decent, typical pub food. Nothing outstanding they were steady and decent.

Service was very attentive and I liked that they called me by my first name which tells me they are paying attention. Restaurant was clean and the food was very good.

We got there about 3:45pm. The restaurant was kind of empty, which was great for two friends to catch up. It got busier around 5:00pm and the noise level went up. But overall a good restaurant. We enjoyed it!

Great food and service. Kids had Mac and cheese and chicken fingers and were good. We had orange chicken - delish and fried chicken sandwich that was juicy and good.

Our food was tasty and the beer was pretty good. A bit noisy, but moving tables away from a "business meeting" helped. Other than the restaurant not noting our Open Table reservation - a good experience. Will return.

Had a problem keeping the place cool when I was there, so sweating and eating was not a good combo. Everything else was top notch.

This new(ish) place in chandler is usually my fiance and I go to place, unfortunately the most recent experience I had was anything but pleasant. Both my fiance and I ordered burgers, we waited 30+ minutes for these burgers to arrive (which is fine because they were busy). Once we received our food we were quick to eat as we were very hungry. Unfortunately though my fiance's burger was so wet and greasy the bun was soggy and inedible. I ordered a blue cheese stuffed burger, to my dismay when biting into it the burger was plain and contained no cheese inside, the frys that came with it were also cold and hard as a rock, completely inedible. When we brought the attention of it to our waitress she was quick to apologize and get her manager. When the manager Brittney came over she was quick to dismiss the issue and stated the burger was stuffed with cheese when it clearly wasn't. Due to the fact there was issues with both of our expensive burgers we were hoping for a better resolution. Once the bill claim the manager did not even bother to take at least one of the faulty burgers off our tab! Super disappointed with the customer service consider we come here often and usually spend close to $100 every time. We will definitely be taking our money elsewhere.

Went to Hop to meet a new friend for dinner. Our server, Taylor, was wonderful. As my friend and I were just meeting, we spent more time talking at first, then looking over the menu. Taylor was patient and kind.
When we did order the food, we had the artichoke dip, which was delicious. My friend had the Thai Prawn Linguine, and I had the meat loaf. (Right?, meat loaf. I am 52, ordering like I am 72). Both meals were fantastic. My meatloaf was not my mother's, and how could it be, but it was wonderful.
We also enjoyed the beer selection.
Overall, a great experience. It was loud, but it is going to be at 7:00 with happy people all around.
I will go back again.

We came to Hop Social for the first time right after they opened and we just raved about the great food. We’ve been back a handful of times since and every time seems a little worse than the last. Today’s visit was particularly bad...not sure if it’s because of the holiday or what. We waited 15-20 minutes to get any service after we were seated...I don’t know where the servers were. There were zero in the floor for us to even flag someone down to ask about it. One person ordered a chicken sandwich but asked for gravy on the side, no lettuce, tomato, onion. So obviously very picky. It came out with an aioli on it that wasn’t listed in the menu at all. The sever kindly didn’t charge us for it but really the menu should include all toppings. The ribs were pretty good but the orange chicken wasn’t very good. It was kind of soggy and didn’t taste “scratch made” as they advertise. The kids fish and chips were good and fries all around were excellent. Sadly, this will probably be our last trip in. You can only give them chances.

We are visiting from California and looked around and found the Hop Social Tavern. This place is great! The cocktails are really good and creative. They have a great selection of local beers. The food was really good. We had the orange chicken, PBJ burger, ahi stack and beet and chicken salad. Everything was delicious! Dessert was fantastic! The donuts are fresh and great with a caramel dipping sauce. The creme brûlée is also great!

When we return to the area we will be coming back!

Two of the last three times I visited HST, I have had a poor service experience. This last time, although there was one large party, the rest of the restaurant was not very busy. My family ordered beer and food. We nursed our beers for 40 minutes waiting for food. My son ordered a salad and it finally came...followed by everyone’s dinner about a minute later. Everyone’s food was hot which was good. Personally I would sent the salad back as it was served with dinner instead of before. My son kept it because they skimped on his meatloaf serving. I know that sometimes they run out of meatloaf, but they should have told him. I think they didn’t because the food was so late. We spoke to the service manager about past service issues and about this recent one. It just does not seem to improve.

Hop Social Tavern is the best! We have been going there ever since it opened.
The food is unbelievable (everything is made from scratch), atmosphere is awesome and the service is even better. I highly recommend Hop Social Tavern if you haven't been yet. You won't be disappointed.

The service and atmosphere was great. Our food came out in a reasonable amount of time and it was very tasty. I was a little surprised about the portion size for the appetizers for the amount they cost. We got the pretzels and we were surprised that there were 6 pieces plus the fondue. We noticed the appetizers at the other tables w

We had a reservation at 7pm, and arrived around 6:45pm. However, we were not seated close to 7pm even though there were seating several others that did not have a reservation. Food was not very impressive, ordered stuffed salmon which was not flavorful at all.

Been here many times and always outstanding, however this time tried the ribs and they were not very good. Might have been over cooked or just a bad rack but will not have them again. Having said this will not stop me from returning as I always have had an exceptional meal and time at Hop Social and would recommend this place with no hesitation- Just not the ribs.

We arrived at 11am and we were the only family there at the time. The food was very good, with the exception of the bison burger. I did not find the meat to be seasoned so it was too bland. The pork nachos were delicious though!! Our server asked if I wanted another mimosa and I declined, 5 minutes later I was given one and charged for it. I did not dispute it off our bill, but probably could of. Please make sure you listen to customers....it's a pet peeve of mine that more worker's in this day and age do not listen to their customers. It was my first time here and I would definitely try it again though.

This place earned a scar as the most ridiculous service I've ever experienced. The waiter was rude from the start, and dumped a flight of beers on the table and all over my date. Soaked her clothes, left us sitting in puddles for about 10 minutes, and only gave us napkins to soak up his mess after my third request. Didn't even replace any of the beers he spilled. We remained friendly through all of this because we'd had an otherwise awesome day. Our steaks were basic and not cooked properly. But the craziest part of dinner was the manager coming over and embarrassing my date when she ordered a porter for desert. My date had had only two beers, and the request for the porter provoked an embarrassing and pretentious response from the manager as she scolded us loudly for violating their 4 drink maximum rule. I tried over and over to explain that we hadn't "violated" the rule to begin with, but the she wasn't actively listening. Ruined the night and left my date in tears from embarrassment. Terrible place, terrible employees, and basic food.

So many good things on the menu! Our first time but we will come back often to try many more dishes. The waitress was excellent and very friendly and engaging! Also other staff came over to assist or check on us and we appreciate it! We had to great dishes...the stuffed salmon and chicken pot pie. Both were so so good! Please don't wait, try this excellent place!!!

We were seated immediately upon arrival. Server was at our table within a couple of minutes taking our drink order which was quickly delivered. We go here often because we like the diversity of the menu and the consistently great service, food, and they always have a huge selection of craft beer.
