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!

We were accommodated with an earlier time than our reservation because our plans changed. The food was delicious and our server, Jay, was delightful! He was very attentive, pleasant, and professional.

To be honest, I chose Social Southern because it was 4.9 starts with over 500 reviews. I told my wife “let’s see if this place is that worthy”. Well, we only had salads but it was fabulous! I had shrimp with my salad and my wife had the flank steak and both were cooked to perfection. The ambiance is cool, the food is excellent (had the Be Old Fashioned too) and the service was great. It may have only been lunch but it was worth the stop ! Well done Social Southern!

Social has a great rustic modern vibe that’s apparent in their ambience and food. Their bourbon selection is second to none in the Lafayette area. Their cocktail are delightful.

We get together with friends every year in Lafayette. Due to COVID, we pushed back our usual spring plan to November. This meant it coincided with one of our friend's birthday. I looked online to find a good place for a birthday brunch and saw Social Southern in the top recommendations on several platforms. I made reservations online for us but wasn't sure how many would be able to come. We showed up for our 10:45am res and the place was packed though they had just opened at 10:30. At the host stand, I said we had a reservation for 6 but that we actually had 7 in our party now. The hostess smiled and said no problem at all and led us to a lovely table. Everything looked good on the menu. We ordered the Walk of Shame frites for the table (with the maple syrup on the side) and everyone enjoyed them. I had the Breakfast Bowl, which was very good. I was most impressed by our server. He did such a fantastic job. I wish I could recall his name. I know larger parties are a nightmare for servers and restaurants in general. I try to avoid going with parties larger than 5, but sometimes it can't be helped. We were never without drinks, our food all came out perfectly - it was impressive, especially considering that the restaurant was packed and he was incredibly busy. I can't wait to come back!

The food was delicious-the fried green tomatoes were the best I’ve ever had. Our waiter was nice & observant of our needs. When we spilled a cocktail, the waiter & manager were there in a flash to help clean up & replace napkins, etc. we had a wonderful evening.

There was too much salt in the entrees. I had a tuna melt and the bread was salted. My husband had a social burger and ate only half because it was too salty, including the bread. This is remarkable in that we both like salt.

Drink order came out wrong x2 — splash of grapefruit instead of cranberry and no slice of lemon as ordered. Then birthday girl who has dietary restrictions specified salmon without the greens and no pepper, asked to substitute grits; “no problem” It came with pepper and greens (she got the grits). They left out the peas; had to reorder. The pork shoulder was more like prepackaged pulled pork. The flatbread was delicious, however. Service was slow, that we understood because the waiter, Jason, had a 10 top. Jason, however, seemed more into bussing his tables for turnover than attending to us. If we ever go back it’d be for flatbread and/or sandwiches, which looked great at nearby tables.
