We have been here before and the food was great. This time the food was good except for the claims on the half shell, they were warm and very very small and did not taste that good. The burger that I had and salad that my wife had were great. Overall it was a good experience.

my fish was extremely overcooked and the jasmine rice was undercooked , two ordered salmon wich was also overcooked and burnt to the board. I didn't tell my server because she had already forgotten to put my mother's chicken order in. she didn't receive until the rest of the party was done .

It's one of the view places in the area that offers the Impossible Burger, a great dinner experience for vegetarians. I loved the lighting and decor. It is definitely a great place for eating as well as for having a few drinks at the bar!

We’re frequent diners at Social 37. Service tonight was not the best we had. We were still eating our appetizers and they brought our main course. I think our waiter might have been new.

Food could have been better, ordered the rib special and they were fatty. I would go back and give them another chance. I did like that I could buy a bottle of wine at cost and take it home if I don’t finish.

We were happy to get a reservation on a Saturday. Amylynn took great care of us. Loved the ambience, loved the cell phone design on the walls, with the idea to put your phones up and socialize. All of our food was great: I had the prosciutto and roasted peach salad with chicken addons and a mild lemon poppyseed vinaigrette; husbands loved the 37 Burger with egg/cheese/bacon topping; and friend loved the grilled salmon. The key lime cheesecake was to die for. Didn't use it, but heard that the restaurant owns Spirit Liquors so you can buy wine at shelf price there. High ceilings so somewhat noisy but nice lighting. Also, big pile of firewood because wood fired pizzas which LOOKED great! I was very pleased and put pictures and a review on TripAdvisor :)

Nikki is the best waitress! She’s so much fun and had great food/drink recommendations. The food was a little too salty, but ignoring that, it was very good. I enjoyed the vegan impossible burger—over cooked (need to ask for it medium or it comes out well done), but still tasty. Ask for it with a ciabatta bun, not the blah potato bun it comes with. My mom’s regular burger looked fantastic. Drinks were top notch.

With many choices for lunch on the Route 37 corridor, I chose Social 37 for a business lunch with my office manager. Quieter than the Office Lounge. Not as pretentious as Artisan’s. The food was quite good, eclectic with something for every pallet. A wide selection of brews to go with the main courses and a pleasant atmosphere to encourage pleasant conversation. In the end, a quite productive lunch.

Our appetizers were served and 2 minutes later our entrees were served. The rigatoni bolognese was fine . The pasta primavera was a dish filled with water, vegetables and pasta. The smell was horrible. The waiter never returned for almost 15 minutes after he served the food. Totally disappointed with service and food.

We ( party of six adults)have had great experiences in the past and the craft beer selection is the best! This time, place wasn’t even busy and service was horrible. Server was slow to take order, drinks came twenty minutes after they were ordered. We ordered oysters and dinner. Server brought all together and said he thought we wanted our appetizers with our dinner. The food had clearly been sitting somewhere because food was not hot and french fries and taco shells were soggy.
Never going back:(

This was our go-to place....Service was great, drinks were great, but food is getting worse each visit....some hot, some cold, and had to actually send some back....and it wasn't even busy. Please get a handle on the quality control outta the kitchen guys, before it becomes the norm.

Once again we had a delicious meal here for my daughter's graduation. The social pizza special was absolutely delicious! Our daughter had the ramen bowl and loved it. We finished with the banana foster bread pudding, brownie sundae and creme brulees which were all amazing. Love being able to make reservations through open table although there is usually seating.

My wive’s ribs were done just right but her sides of baked beans and an ear of corn were underdone- crunchy , in both cases. Prices were a tad high for unusual beers and some meals- limited entrees, more pizza/ sandwiches and burgers. Not a sports bar- which my wife looked. Noise level was OK , but would get higher , due to all surfaces were hard scrape. Waitress was excellent, timing her queries perfectly.

We had our son's Graduation party at Social 37. The table was ready for us and they were very accommodating. The food and atmosphere, as always, was very good. We had some guest who were vegetarians who had no problem finding something to eat.

I have enjoyed Social37 several times since it opened. Salads, pizza, steak were quite good. You cannot beat the wine prices and good selection. On this occasion and my last visit the food was quite disappointing. Pork enchiladas were seriously dry. No enchilada sauce at all. No cheese at all. No spice at all. Ramen noodles were also flavorless. Perhaps Social 37 should stick with standards and avoid ethnic dishes?

Great place for dinner. Food was very good, ambiance is great, service was fantastic. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us some great recommendations. The prices were reasonable. Bottles of wine are same price as the liquor store and what you don’t finish they will cork and you can bring home. Will be going back very soon

We had a cute chuggle at the old phones on the walls while we where waiting to be seated. The service was slow but polite. We where a table of 7 some ordered off the specials and some off the regular menu. I wouldn’t recommend the the seafood risotto The burgers where good. But some of the party ordered the flavored fries and they received the plain fries instead. The drink orders took forever to receive and we had to flag down our waiter to receive refills. But the drinks where well made. I would recommend the place to have a beer and burger with friends but nothing else. We will not returning.

First time visit. Taylor, our server, explained the menu, seasonal items and use of sources ingredients. My brother in law had the.pizza which was crisp thin crusted and delicious. The rest of us had burgers which were awesome. Food cooked as requested. Burger meat wonderful. Burger buns slightly grilled and just perfect to hold up to cheese. Meat and condiments. Most definitely warrants a return visit

Went here the first time for Mother's Day. The food was great, it's a big place and they take reservations (thru Open Table!) so there was no wait. Service was very good and the food was even better. Interior of the restaurant is very nice, good ambiance, not too loud. I would recommend this place for sure.
