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!
Truly enjoyed the experience. The food and drinks were terrific. Ian was a great waiter. The atmosphere was comfortable and social.
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.
Lindsay is the best.
Aww, we think so too! She'll appreciate the kind words. Thanks for joining us, hope to see you again soon.
One of the restaurant gems of Lafayette! Service is always on point! Can never go wrong with ordering anything off the menu. Unique pairings offer the most delicious dishes, using the freshest and local ingredients! Never disappointed!
PamelaL, thanks for the review. We are so happy to hear you enjoy your visits with us. We look forward to serving you again soon.
Great cocktails, food and service, as always!
Halls, thanks for the review. We look forward to serving you again soon.
Fantastic as usual. Best brunch in Acadiana.
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.
We are disappointed to read your review. I would love to share with our kitchen staff the food items you didn't care for. We would the opportunity to improve in any way we can. Would you mind emailing us at info@socialsouthern. We appreciate the feedback and look forward to hearing from you.
The food was delicious!
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.
Hey Philip, thanks for the review. We appreciate you taking the time to write. We will look into the desserts. Thanks again.
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.
Social is always our go-to restaurant for an special occasion! Service is by far the best in Lafayette! Food is always outstanding!
Love the food here and service is awesome too!!!!!
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.
All good, food , drinks & service.
Wait was nearly 2 hours from being seated to desert completion
Owner bought us a round which was appreciated only open a week need to monitor ticket times as some who came in after us 30 minutes or more served before us hope they fix this issue
Always a treat. Great service by Chris. Food was absolutely amazing. One of the best restaurants in Lafayette.
Table was ready when we arrived, food and service was fantastic.
Will be going back as soon as I can!
Easily the best restaurant in Lafayette. Everything is great from the hostess to the food!
Service is always wonderful here. Food is consistently very flavorful and steaming hot. I would highly recommend the fried chicken and their mac and cheese - best I've ever had!
The food was delicious and they even catered to my friend's complicated food allergies. The server we had, Brandon, is top notch.
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!
Always a great time at Social. Service has been top notch and food is consistent time and time again.
Great dining experience: delicious food, fun drinks, wonderful service! Will go again soon!
Had a delightful lunch with a friend. Service and food were both perfect. Look forward to going again soon.
Great food! Great service! Love ladies lunch! Can’t go wrong choosing Social for lunch or dinner
Sunday brunch was an awesome family experience...
Very good food and service. Pricy but good food so I guess you get what you pay for.
Service was slow; Food mediocre; Smoked Fried Chicken was substandard, Reuben was burned edge and hard texture. All in all would not return for a meal there.
Waiter spilled drink on two of our guest and only came back 2x to see if we needed anything.
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.
