My family had a wonderful time!
Food & drinks were great, noise level was a bit much. The most outstanding part was our server Sara/Sarah (sorry, not sure of the spelling). She was amazing! My niece suffers from celiacs & my husband has a shellfish allergy, very stressful every time we go out. She took such good care of us & didn’t make us feel like we shouldn’t go out to eat.
Can’t wait to go back!

The cocktails are the draw... I guess we just ordered the wrong small plates. Mussels were very disappointing (some actually not edible). Flatbread was tasty, however toppings were scant and the hush puppies were just tasteless. Next time, we will eat before and just go for drinks....

Food, drinks, and service all outstanding. Small glitch with one of the dishes was corrected immediately with way too many apologies. A great place to go.

We visited Social Still for dinner on a Saturday evening - our first visit. We made reservations, which I highly recommend, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. We loved everything about the experience! We ate on one of the two 2nd-floor balconies, overlooking the bar/seating area below. Thankfully, it was a little less noisy in the balcony area. I don't know if I would have stayed if I had to eat in the lower, very (very!) noisy area. Our server was attentive and courteous. The food was delicious! There's a good variety of drinks, including house-stilled spirits like bourbon, though drinks are on the expensive side. The ambiance was really very cool... It's an old bank building, complete with vaulted ceilings and the real, old vault - open to browse - which now houses kegs of their aging house-brewed products. There's even a small store, staffed by an employee who was very engaging - offering samples of their house-brewed spirits. There's also lots of Social Still apparel and bling for the picking. We will definitely be returning!

Social Still is our go to place for a bite to eat before going to see shows at Zoellner Art Center. It's just a few blocks from the Lehigh University Campus. Their menu is not extensive but everything on it is delicious. One of my favorites is the pork street tacos. Great cocktails too with their house made spirits. Service is quick but not rushed. Love the ambiance of the restored historic building.

We all enjoyed the food and service, which were both very good. Only thing that was a small issue, it is quite loud.

Great re purpose for the building and will be going back.

We haven’t been to the Social Still for awhile but we will not wait so long next time. Everything is wonderful there and the proximity to Steel Stacks and Wind Creek make it a definite stop.

Was here for a late lunch with friends post movie at Steel Stacks. I love Social Still and have NEVER had bad food or service here. The staff is always so friendly and accommodating. And the food is always crazy delicious. This time our server (damn, I can't remember his name) waited on us at a high top by the bar. He took so much time explaining about the distilling process and encouraging us to try one of the tours (we definitely will!), plus he helped me with a food recommendation and purchases in their little store afterwards. It was such a relaxed afternoon with friends. The place is so unique and beautiful. I don't know... I just love this place! We will be back with husbands next time!

Had a nice time at Social Still. Service was excellent; however, my entree was not. I ordered the BLT salad and while it was good portion-wise, the taste was totally bitter. I believe I may have gotten the ends of the lettuce leaves which are always bitter.

Our desert was great! Smore's in a Jar was so good!

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend away with a stay at the Sands Casino and attended the comedy show there. We made reservations at the Social Still, we were greeted and seated promptly. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. We had the Crab Hushpuppies, and Pulled Pork Nachos as an early/small dinner before the show. They were both delicious!

Cool ambiance, good service, delicious food. Frittata —egg with lump crab meat & spinach, topped with fries— was yummy! Hubby enjoyed his crispy chicken sandwich too. Drinks were good. A tad pricey.

After having gone into this building with my parents when it was the Peoples Bank, I was very glad to see that they had tried to incorporate much of the original appearance into the restaurant.
Although the food is a bit pricey, it is deliciously so.

The owner and staff are very friendly and accommodating. They gave a free bottle of homemade hot sauce after we raved about it. The food was surprisingly very good and flavorful. The only downside is the lack seating for disabled/ elderly people. We had to eat al fresco because an elderly friend of ours was unable to climb the high top tables. The location of an historical bank makes for a great back drop for eating and drinking.

Great place! Everything from our service to drinks, food, ambiance was great. Loved their rye. Burgers -amazing. Jackfruit tacos, watermelon salad - something different and very good!
Planning another trip as it is a 1:30 min drive, but worth it. Add time to walk over to steel stacks and see the old factory.

I chose Social Still for my friend’s bachelorette party dinner . We were a group of 8 and as you may guess we were late for our reservation haha. But, Social Still kept our reservation and helped us with our time check strains as we had another event after dinner to get to. They were great, flexible, and the food and drink was amazing! Can’t wait to go back when we are not in such a rush!

My husband and I had a late dinner at the Social Still after a movie. We kept commenting on how wonderful everything was, and that every time we eat here we leave really satisfied saying, "It's ALWAYS good!" We split the charcuterie board to start. I have to say this is a favorite appetizer no matter where we are, but The Social Still's meat/cheese board is a BIG winner. One of the best we've had. It's not skimpy and is loaded with cheeses and meats all with incredible flavor—some mild, some spicy. The liver pate was SO INCREDIBLE I had to ask about it, and the server happily told me about the local guy who sells it to the restaurant and where to find him. All the nuts and accompaniments were just perfect with the selections of meats and cheeses. AND there were plenty of warm, toasted, crisps to eat with it. LOVED IT! I had the scallops over peanut noodle maki rolls. So tasty and the scallops were seared and cooked to perfection. My husband had a burger that he couldn't stop raving about. Our drinks came out really quickly despite the place being packed on a Friday night. Food was paced perfectly. Our table was cleared when things needed to be. It was just perfection. Everyone is friendly and the atmosphere though loud is really vibrant and fun! We adore the Social Still!

It was a spur of the moment find and boy it was great! Their gin and rye whiskey is AMAZING! We were in a bit of hurry considering we were heading to a show at the Wind Creek Event Center and didn’t have time to buy any but heading back to do so!

What a cool place! Inside a former bank, the ambiance is about a piece of history saved and honored with this new business. Love the two balconies, unique light fixtures, open vault, giant stills behind glass, and more. Great location, lots of parking. Caitlyn (spelling?) Was a professional and cheerful server. She was genuinely happy that all four of us LOVED our burgers. The Trufflin' Along is probably the best burger I've ever had. All the staff is super friendly, but Caitlyn made our night. It's great that they have a store right there as well.

Well it's a very nice place. It was not crowded but took quite a while to get our food. Would have been a better review but the Falafel wrap was hard and uneatable. Burgers were great, had house homemade vodka which is expensive and average.

First time at the Social Still. A wonderful use of an old bank even down to using the vault to store distillery barrels. Great atmosphere. Service was attentive. Both the food and the specialty cocktail we had were excellent. My wife has Celiac and while they don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen they did have a gluten free menu with lots of options and were knowledgeable. Will definitely be going back.
