Food was great. Pretty empty for a Saturday. Waitress was friendly but rushed us out there. No clue why. She was asking about desserts when I was half way through my entree. Why the rush?

Amy was fantastic - she made sure we had exactly what we needed and made great recommendations. Very pleasant and had a great personality. We were able to get our meeting off and running and enjoy some time to ease up and be social (pun not intended - sorry) Will definitely be back- was exactly the right vibe for my business. Thanks!

Our experience was good. The food was yummy and the service was fairly quick, but it wasn’t very busy while we were there. We weren’t offered drink refills, but it wasn’t the end of the world. The menu items were a little pricy considering this isn’t a very “fancy” restaurant. Nevertheless, the food tasted good so we will return.

we had a very accommodating waitress who anticipated our every need without hovering. We were reuniting after many years and never meant to feel that lingering was a problem. Only complaint was that my pear and prosciutto white pizza was missing the pear. Was so engrossed in conversation I didn't notice that until I was eating the remaining half at home.

Social 37 looks like a great spot, but was a little disappointed with the wait time for a table. We did not have a reservation. There were 10 to 15 tables open and we waited 20 to 30 minutes and they told us they have reservations. No one was showing so eventually they seated us after I spoke to the manager. I think they need a better policy when live customers are there waiting and reservations are not showing. The food was good and the beer selection very good. I like the ambiance as well but the dining room tables are not comfortable and the seating is too low. Just a couple comments. If i can sit at the bar I prefer it. The prices are a little high for what you get. A burger at $14 dollars?

This is a great place if you're looking for a step above casual, but not too fancy. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. The layout of the space was large, but inviting. If you like beer, there is a very large selection to choose from. Although the dinner entrees were limited, there should be a plate for everyone's taste.

Nice casual restaurant. Went for Valentine's Day and it was a little disappointing. Had a reservation and got a table in the center of the dining room which was noisy and uncomfortable. If making reservations, request a booth which seems much more private for a couple. Wine prices were terrific, and diner prices were average. Don't order sushi here. It was mushy and not kept cold. The other food was fine and the service was excellent!

We really enjoyed our Valentine's Day dinenr at Social 37. We had the shoshito peppers as an appetizer. Not many restaurants feature shoshitos on their menus, so this was a great find. We really enjoyed the carne asada tacos and the thai chicken lettuce wraps. Delicious. And the bar made an excellent margarita on the rocks. Our server, Lisa, was quick, efficient and very welcoming. Because there are several menu items that I am interested in tasting, we will definate have dinner there again soon.

The food was really good! We got the fire grilled clams and brie/fig appetizers - both were excellent but the brie was definitely a favorite. We made a reservation about a half hour before we went on a Friday night- the table was bit tight, but that was to be expected for our last minute reservation. Tables in this location can get cold from the door opening/closing. They have a great beer selection and the server was knowledgeable and friendly.

Food & drinks were good. We were done with our meals and we were going to get dessert but our waitress just came over with the check and was like ok have a good night....we all just looked at each other like “Really?” That was weird as we were also having drinks. And it wasn’t very busy and it wasn’t like their were people waiting for tables.

Great food that is made with quality ingredients! We started with the tinga tostadas, which tasted incredible; all of the flavors really complimented each other so well. We (my girlfriend and I) then ordered our entrees. I had the pot roast which was so savory and full of flavor. My girlfriend had the steak, which from my previous experiences, is always spot on.

The atmosphere is a bit noisy but it feels lively and energetic. If you're looking to go on a first date or so, it may not be the best place but would be great for a second date or restaurant and bar to meet with friends. Super cool decor and ambience as well. Overall, great place to eat and be social.

I came here for a family dinner while my uncle was in town; I wanted to bring him somewhere "different, with great food and a diverse beer selection" and I could think of nowhere more appropriate. It was the perfect choice. We started with the lettuce wraps which were quite tasty with just a hint of spicy pepper (and perfect for the carb-conscious diet). We also ordered a marguerita pizza to share. It came out with just the right amount of fresh basil and mozzarella and it was nice and crispy with slightly browned edges (like it should be out of a wood-fired oven). We all ordered different entrees, one fresh catch dinner, one pasta bolognese and a filet mignon special. No complaints here! The filet was cooked perfectly to order (med-rare) and the fresh mako was so juicy and tender we know it had to be freshly caught. After such a good meal we decided we couldn't skip dessert (even though we had already "splurged" with an IPA pint from the local breweries Kane and Cape May Brewing). We again split the choices so we could all get a sampling; we had a to-die-for brownie sundae, a creme brulee and a New York Cheesecake. The plates not only were appealing to look at, they were amazing to eat. All great choices!

Overall, we had a great experience and would definately return in the future. My only "complaint" might be that it can get a wee bit loud in there when the music is turned up...but this would never keep me from enjoying myself (it's just an observation). The selection of craft beers isn't matched by any local eatery that I can think of. Some of the pints can be pricey but I understand that when it comes to real brews, it is costly to make so this is understandable.

Five stars from this picky eater!

We were a little disappointed this time. Usually everything is great. I’m thinking because it was New Year’s Eve, this visit wasn’t what we are used to. We felt very rushed. I wouldn’t go on a holiday again.

Enjoyed an early dinner on New Years Eve.
Ordered 2 pies for our party of 5. The pear pie was delicious as was the margarita pie.
Wife and daughter split a bottle of wine, I had a scotch, and my son had a paddle of beers. All was good and the prices were decent.
Wife got the harvest salad with chicken and she loved it.
