Our favorite food experiences have never happened while in the company of ourselves. It’s been surrounded by family and friends.

We appreciate where food comes from and wholeheartedly believe that our cuisine is only as good as the ingredients we cook with.

    While the servers were delightful, the meal ended up being served in reverse order! Our entrees came out first, followed by our salads and lastly the cocktails that we ordered when we were seated. They need to work on logistics!

    Our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised! Our waiter was excellent, very attentive. Drinks came to the table promptly. Portions tend to be large so we just had one course each. Cobb salads were excellent. We shared one order of fries for the table which came out hot and crisp. The burger was good and filet mignon cooked to order and very tender. Only food disappointment was the mashed potatoes. Also there was no option for decaf coffee or decaf cappuccinos. Only caffeinated coffee which is unusual for a good restaurant. Otherwise we had a good experience and will definitely come back.

    Southern Social Kitchen & BarResponded 5 days agoThanks for dining - we're working on our coffee options and will see you again soon!

    Great welcome and server. One of the owners popped by and made us welcome. The Gumbo special was huge and very tasty. Veggies were all excellent. Drinks and entree prices on the high side given the informal atmosphere but overall a very pleasant experience.

    Loud, but yummy. We could barely hear each other at this restaurant. Every surface is hard, there’s nothing to absorb the sound of LOTS of people sitting in a small space where sound just bounces around. It was difficult to hear our server and he had to move to the other side of a table for four to explain the specials! That said, our food was very tasty. Would I go back? My assessment is: better for takeout than for dinner!

    enjoyed the shrimp and grits. Thought the blackened shrimp were salty but all else was very good. Had the cinnamon roll bread pudding for desert. Wine was a full pour and very nice for the price point. Would recommend.

    First time at Southern Social. Reservation was for 6pm and the restaurant was practically empty. Waiter served drinks and took our order. Within a short time the place filled up and was quite loud. Our order took almost an hour to come out. Our drinks went empty during the wait and had to ask the waiter to refill. That was the only refill we got. The food was great and the portions were large enough for me and I can eat a lot. Overall excellent food, we had the brisket fried rice and the lamb chops, but service was slow. Not sure if I'll repeat but if I do it will not be on a Saturday night.

    We tried out this restaurant. We were seated and after 15 mins grabbed someone to ask where and who our waiter was. The food was ok, wings were excellent the shrimp and grits was ok - shrimp was over cooked and the grits were undercooked and a bit soupy. It is definitely a different restaurant for the area which is great but the service was poor and food was ok.

    Took quite a few minutes after we were seated to get our drink order in and even longer to receive our beverages, which were mediocre. Finally, we were able to order starters, cobb salad, and the short rib pontine. Both were excellent! Our entrees were shrimp and grits, filet and catch of the day. The shrimp and grits were watery, probably because they placed corn on top of the grits, but the flavor was good. Filet and fish were ordered with brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes. The sprouts were a tad too sweet and the mashed potatoes were inedible, however, the proteins were both fabulous! We will return and try other sides, hoping to be able to elevate the food review.

    We had a reservation on Christmas Eve. We had high hopes since we have dined here several times. The service was poor and my “fish of the day” was awful. I rarely complain about food when I eat out but did that night. Waitress blew me off and never tried to make it right. Won’t be going back anytime soon. Don’t waist your money! There are plenty of other great place to eat in Vero.

    Forgot to bring appetizer but was considerate and took it off bill. Not impressed with price and quality for a specials meal that was over 50 bucks. Didn't get order for sides right. Creamed corn tasted like out of a can. Menu is much smaller than a year ago and not as flavorful as a few years back. Then brought us wrong check. It was ok but no desire to return.

    Excellent menu choices. Turkey and tenderloin was done to perfection. Can't ask for more. Great list of sides, I had mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cream corn was tops. Pecan and pumpkin pie rounded everything out. Southern Social did a great job.

    They were the one of the few places in town open on Thanksgiving, so they were really busy. They did a fabulous job keeping up with the crowd. We go there regularly and love this place.. We are vegans and they have several vegan options. Every person that I have come into contact with who works there is nice and genuinely wants to do a good job.

    Server was inattentive. Country gravy on the country fried steak has sausage in it. Very disappointed with my meal. Country gravy is a white, sawmill gravy. They should be more specific on the menu.

    I have eaten at Southern Social many times and would say that if this was my first visit I am not sure I would return. My husband ordered the prime rib and it was chewy, I had the veal meatloaf and it was dry and tough, my mashed potatoes were dry and my creamed corn was soup.

    Came here for dinner with my wife and 2 boys. Loved their country decor. Wonderful service from the hostess to Felix, our waiter. Drinks were awesome. I had the walnut old fashioned and my wife had the Paloma. The pork belly burnt ends were to die for and easily the best thing we ate all night. The kids liked their burger, Mac& cheese and fries. The veal meatloaf was ok but the brussel sprouts were delicious. The shrimp and grits were also just ok but unfortunately, the 4 cheese Mac and cheese was a big letdown (lacking salt and cheese seemed watered down). Thankfully we finished with a banana pudding that was pretty good. Overall, nice restaurant experience.
