This place has huge portions so order with care unless you want a bunch to take home. Excellent food, my favorite was the mac and cheese. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and strong drinks. :-) Definitely will go back.

As usual, we a great meal at Social. This time was Sunday Brunch. I made the reservation that morning, and we were seated immediately. The service was prompt and attentive. Drinks were outstanding and the food was excellent. It was wonderful all around. Just what we’ve come to expect from Social!

All was good on this visit but on a previous visit, it was just the opposite. On the previous visit, the hostess was very rude, maybe because we had no reservations but could see MANY available tables...we ended up leaving at that time. However, this visit was the opposite where the hostess was very pleasant and our server was wonderful too. Maybe having a reservation makes a difference, even for lunch. Prices were a little high for this location. All that said, we would come back because we enjoyed it.

Social Southern was recommended by a friend & it did not disappoint! Great bar options, enjoyed the Sparkly Cosmo! Once seated for dinner we were overwhelmed with all the delicious sounding options. Our waiter Marcus did an excellent job explaining the preparation of certain menu items and was very attentive throughout the meal! We ordered the Fried Chicken-N-Biscuits and Fire roasted Yardbird. Both deliciously prepared, moist & tender. Great seasonings & yummy sweet potato biscuits. To top it off Marcus brought us a complementary Italian Chocolate Pudding to celebrate our 4 year Anniversary! Super nice treat! I would definitely recommend Social table to anyone traveling through the Lafayette area!

We had early (7:00 pm) reservations. We had a table of five. Two of us ordered Salmon, 10 minutes later we were told they only had one Salmon. This was my granddaughters 21st birthday so it was a celebration. I told the two hostesses it was her birthday and asked if they did anything special. They did not know but said they would ask. Well, nothing ever happened; I was expecting a reply.

The food was of average quality and above average price. Very little was outstanding, except the drinks which were above average. For 6 people, 10 drinks, 3 appetizers, 3 entrees and a couple of salads and flatbread, 3 deserts and the total bill was over $400. For average stuff, not an average price.

What I like about this restaurant is that most of the dishes I have tried are not only excellent but are CONSISTENTLY excellent. All chicken dishes, hamburger and shrimp & grits are are best in town in my opinion. Desserts are not strong point but everything else more than makes up for it.

Food was way overpriced and just subpar. Drinks were good, but they took forever to get to our table. Server was very attentive and knew the menu, so that was a plus. Ambiance was cool, but we were very disappointed in the food...especially for what we paid for it. My chicken was very rubbery with zero flavor. My husband was also dissatisfied with his meal. We were bummed because we heard so many rave reviews about this place. Unfortunately, we will not be back.

I liked the ambiance and the fact that it was a reduced price ladies' lunch. We had a nice table next to the window which I liked.
However, our server was not very knowledgeable regarding the menu. He also wasn't very attentive to us. Never made eye contact when in the vicinity. I had to go get him so that we could order.
The salad with the shrimp was too spicy and there was no warning, neither on the menu, nor from the waiter who later said: I should have told you:-( The Tuna melt sandwich was okay, but the presentation on the plate was plain.
I think there is room for improvement!

This is a very nice place to socialize with friends, it is loud but is acceptable. The food changes often but always good, the service is sometimes distracted some others excellent. I will be back for sure for business lunch.

Great Sunday brunch. The caprese salad (green tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and sweet melon) was perfect with the viognier that Bryan suggested. My pork steak dish and my wife's house salad w/ grilled shrimp were delicious. The service at Social is second to none. They will adjust and/or substitute almost any items on the menu to your taste.

A little too loud where I sat. It does add energy but was hard to have a conversation. That shouldn't not distract from an overall solid experience. The food and drinks were great and I would definitely recommend. It stands out as unique in this area and I greatly appreciate that.

I was thoroughly impressed by Southern Social! Everything was tastefully put together, from the clean, classic decor to the server's outfits. The food tasted superb and was well-presented. Next time I have friends or family visiting from out of town, I'll take them here.

We love Social. The drinks are always wonderful. The Fried Green Tomatoes are a truly perfect dish, and are consistently delicious. On this particular trip, the new Crawfish Toast was a little too salty, and needed a bit more flavor. The Vegetarian Flatbread was a bit bland as well. The service, as always, was excellent.
We could eat at Social everyday!

We have been to Social every time we visit our Daughter and grandchildren but the last few visits have been disappointing. This lastest visit we arrived just after they opened and initially the service was prompt with our appetizers arriving relatively promptly. Then we waited for over an hour for our meals which resulted in our daughter being late for an important business meet. About 10 mins before the food finally arrived the server advised it was in the window and would be at our table immediately. She then served food to two other tables before our food was delivered. At no point did a manager touch our table and no one apologized for the extremely slow service. We will skip Social when we next visit.

Yes, I definitely would. They have an incredible amount of drink choices. I would recommend going with one of their whiskey drinks.
