    Mothers Day brunch - every thing about our experience was amazing! The server was friendly, knowledgeable and make excellent suggestions. The food was just as amazing as the server promised. Drinks were also delicious. I can’t say one negative thing - highly recommend. We had fried green tomatoes and jalapeño ranch to start and I had the BEST shrimp and grits ever - seriously.

    Mother’s Day Brunch was great. My Mom, Sister, and Girlfriend absolutely loved it. They were not disappointed with my choice at all. I picked Social because of the variety on the menu. A nice mix of breakfast and lunch choices. We will be back.

    Excellent food and exemplary service! We are in town for Cycle Zydeco. Tried the place one night…had to go back again before we left town. Bella was our server…she is the best ever!! She is a big reason we went back. New server did a great job! Clearly, this place values their customers’ experience.

He even wakes us to the door to escort us out and ran us out to go food when we forgot it! The best!! Absolutely adore Social and their staff!

    If our waitress had read our reservation before she came to our table it would have been perfect! Once we got past her not being aware of a special request it was wonderful! I had spoken to someone there who gave me a list of Bourbons and Whiskeys to choose from. I updated my reservation with my choice and made a request that they bring that to my husband without asking him his choice of a drink. It was a surprise and I didn’t want to tell him what he was getting because he would have not wanted me to spend the money. Not only had she not read the reservation but she asked me to tell her what I wanted for him. I asked her to read the reservation again because his drink was a surprise. We love the atmosphere and the food here is always good. We will be back!

    Fabulous dinner, Social Southern style. Server Brandon was tops-very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu offerings, as well an the spirits and Craft Cocktails. The Sazerac and Old Fashioned were spot-on. The Drums appetizer was outstanding, as was the smoky Butter Lettuce Wedge. The Tomato Basil Flatbread was tasty. Do not miss: Sweet Potato Biscuits with Bee Honey. 🐝 They don't taste like yams-just the softest most pillowy thing you ever tasted! 😍 Will definitely be back and will also look into the other restaurants in this Group! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Overall a good experience. The service was exceptional. This was a date night for my wife and I and we found the noise and ambiance a little to "enthusiastic" for our liking. This is a great place to meet friends or otherwise have a more social experience, but for an intimate dinner there are better options.

    I have dine here several times in the past and the food and drinks are amazing with impeccable service , however this past Sunday we were a party of 12 and did online reservations and hoped to be seated next to one another I suggested this place to my family and friends and was rather embarrassed by the service we received , we asked if we could seat near one another once the party table in the middle was done and the manager said no , the neighboring table was willing to swap tables and still the manager said no , honestly I’m not sure why he felt like this would have disrupted the flow of things , this is me speaking from being a manager in the food service industry and customer satisfaction within reason is my ultimate goal & I felt like our request was within reason This experience has totally changed my perspective about this establishment

    WE had such a fun waiter, an anthropology student...he gave us details about each dinner and because of the details, we were able to order the right dinners....the portion sizes are LARGE, the food is excellent, the selections are varied and interesting...we were a party of 4 and the food and drinks came at a reasonable amount of time. We loved the open interior, very pretty, with low lighting to add to the ambiance. We started with a mushroom flatbread...I would come back just for that it was that good...porcini mushrooms and a delicious crust...the portion sizes are large so the waiter steered us to the tuna appetizer, which is a generous amount of perfectly seasoned and cooked tuna...with salads! The frites were crunchy and the jalapeño ranch dipping sauce made it special. Good wine list, good beer list, great food, great ambiance and knowledgeable servers. Perfect evening!
