Social has been one of my favorite places to dine and sip on great cocktails. I was extremely disappointed last weekend in the lack of attention given to following COVID-19 rules. There were WAY too many people allowed to dine at one time, there were multiple tables with parties of 6+, and many people sitting at the bar (next to each other) without masks. The food and service were great! All employees wore masks. I will not return however until COVID is better controlled as I do not trust that there will be fewer people in the building and no one sitting at the bar.

Dining at Social is always great!! One of the only places we will dine at during this pandemic because they are so clean and they are constantly sanitizing everything. They also do not allow crowding. I recommend this place to everything!!

From the greeting at the door to the personalized service we couldn’t ask for a better experience. We started off with the fried green tomatoes and jalapeño Rita and both were delicious and flavorful. The service is always impeccable and it’s always a pleasure dining here.

As usual, Social lived up to our lofty expectations. The drinks were superb. The service was excellent. And, the food was incredible. The fried green tomatoes were better than ever. My lady loved the unique fried chicken, and the new crawfish pasta is incredible. My go-to place when I want a memorable meal. Thank you for reopening, Social!

Wonderfully stylish and cool place. Our server was super helpful with suggestions for food and drinks choices, us being tourists and not knowing the local delicacies nor the restaurant’s own specials. We had the chicken and biscuits, and salmon. My husband had an amazing local sour beer recommended by the server that even I, who never drink any beer, quite liked.

I visited Social for my birthday. I haven’t attended brunch in years and it was outstanding. My two other guests were first time visitors to Social and were impressed with the food, ambiance, waitress, and level of service. Emily did a wonderful job and was very thorough and prompt. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. We can’t wait to return!

This was our first time visiting Social and from the reviews we heard from others the food was delicious and unique. We were excited to try it.
We ordered the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. Very good!!!
Then, two out of three of us ordered the Thursday Special Meatloaf with 2 sides. Upon the arrival of our entrees the meatloaf did not look appetizing at all. But said maybe it will taste better than it looks. The taste was equally as disappointing as the texture. It was very dense and tasted like a bland pate! The Mac n Cheese had a chalky consistency not at all the creamy texture we where hoping for. Our third person chose the shrimp and grits and said it was “ok” nothing she would order again.
Our server was very attentive. He kept our drinks filled and table cleared. It took an hour to receive our entrees. And by that point one of us had to leave and she literally had taken only one bite of meatloaf and one bite of Mac n Cheese. Leaving the entire plate of food sitting there. The waiter was told that she didn’t care for the meal at all. He said he could box it up. However, he should have offered to remove it from the bill and it would have been even more impressive if he had offered a discount on a future visit. He offered to trade out the other displeasing meatloaf entree for something he suggested (steak and fries). Her opinion was it tasted better than the meatloaf but not something she would order again.
We made this reservation to try out Social through their Facebook advertisement of February ladies lunch. We left after paying over $75 dollars for food we did not like at a place we most likely will not eat at again.

Hey Matt, thanks for taking the time to review Social. Due to rising costs and in order to not increase our prices, customers opting to pay with a credit card or debit card will see a small non-cash charge of 4% towards processing fees. However, this DOES NOT APPLY to customers paying in cash or with a check. We thank you for your patronage & continued support.

We went for galentines day lunch. It was a full house and it seemed to affect the quality a bit. Wine seemed to change halfway through service, not for the better. Salmon was undercooked. I saved it and had to cook it more at home to eat it the next day. I’ve had the salmon there before and it was perfect. This visit just didn’t meet the expectations I had.

Hi Amber, thanks for sharing your experience. Our owners and management team want to look into your lunch more but we can't find a reservation under your name for Galentine's Day. Would mind sharing with us the reservation name or if you happen to remember who took care of you, that would be more helpful! Please email us directly at info@socialsouthern. comThanks so much.

The food was delicious and very interesting. We had the fried green tomatoes, the beet salad, the garlic bisque, the smoked fried chicken, the sweet potato biscuits, grits, and the hanger steak with chimichura sauce and frites, and for dessert carrot cake and a unique crepe brûlée. Our waiter and staff were very friendly, informative, and prompt. It was a festive evening with all of the Mardi Gras lights and decorations. We will definitely return soon.
