The Northside Social
Dinner: Monday - Thursday: 4:00pm - 10:00pm, Friday & Saturday: 4:00pm - 10:30pm
This was our first visit and now may be our favorite place to eat in Indy!
I've dined here many times, yet this was the first time we were not that pleased with either dish. I've had the scallop dish many times, but this evening, it really just was off- not nearly as yummy as before. I am not sure why. The pasta/mushroom dish was recommended with the blackened shrimp. The dish tasted like someone accidentally dumped a bunch of salt in it. I like salt! lol, but it was really salty. I ate most of it though, lol. Disappointed the cornbread didn't come out in the cast iron dish, as once was custom. It lost it's presentation and didn't stay warm. It was still pretty tasty though.
The Shrimp and Grits were fabulous. Sorry to see them go off the menu and don't know why I never ordered them before. The grits were so creamy and the spice level was just perfect. The collard greens are so flavorful. It's the only place I will eat the collard greens.
It was my birthday. The manager and server were exceptional.
Amazing place. Amazing service! Food was great. Server did an amazing job.
Great place for a date night. Wonderful service and amazing food.
First time here. Food was very good. Interesting menu with a lot of variety. It was a bit noisy when we arrived, but settled down later on. Drinks were pricey. My Bloody Mary came in a short glass at a tall glass price.
Our first time at Northside Social. It was recommended to us by a friend, and it was outstanding. The food and service were fantastic. We will certainly return.
This was my second visit to the Northside Social and the food has been tremendous both times. The service is good but the sound level alone will probably keep me from coming back. There are hard surfaces everywhere, which means that the sound has nowhere to go, so it just gets louder and louder. On my most recent visit, we were seated in a corner of the room with a large family gathering (including 2 screaming babies trying to out scream each other) on one side of us an a "girls night out" party on the other. I was there on a date, and while I'm glad the other group were having a great time, it was far from the intimate evening I was hoping for. Again, the food is tremendous, you just may not be able to hear the people you're dining with.
Ribs are to die for!! I don't eat Ribs but these were meaty with loads of flavor. Not oversauced/glazed but just perfect The meat literally falls off the bone. The sides dishes of brussel sprouts and potato salad were incredible. So much flavor and I do not like brussel sprouts but could eat a plateful of these. The Seared Bacon was amazing. The combination of all the ingredients will want you to order another but don't so you can save room for dessert. The chocolate trifle is delicious beyond words - with the crumbled warm brownie on top and the sweetness of the strawberries!!! Perfect ending to a great meal. Can't wait to go back. The service was awesome-Ask for Shelby. She was attentive without hovering and so friendly and knowledgable about the menu.
Thoroughly enjoyed! We were Celebrating a BD & Anniversary .
Terrific food brought to us by a terrific server.
VERY NICE PLACE GREAT FOOD AND DRINKS AND VERY FRIENDLY SERVER AND EMPLOYEES.
The food wasn’t as good as I thought in consideration of the prices.
It was nice and our waitress was great. The lighting in this place is to dim for me I feel that it should be a little lighter in there than what was. That would be the only complaint that I have. We tried to take a picture and couldn't because of how dark it was.
Went to dinner on Wednesday 8/22, and ordered the trout, which was outstanding!
Very nice restaurant. Food was really good.
Wont go back anytime soon. Pretty expensive for what u get
One of our favorite restaurants. Menu changes seasonally with some staples that always stay. Great for dinner or HappyHour with a great appetizer selection. Great wine selection and cocktails, too!
To start with, our waiter, Nick, was exceptional. He was friendly, helpful in answering menu questions, patient (didn’t rush us), and good sense of humor. Then, the food was delicious!! We both loved our entrees and look forward to coming back to try others. The menu was so interesting that we had a hard time choosing an item.
It was a Friday night and therefore quite busy, so we had to talk pretty loud to hear each other. So next time we’ll probably come on a week night. Nevertheless we will be back!!
Another absolute fantastic meal! The tagiatelle was incredible. The homemade pasta was great. Can't wait to go back.
Wonderful service and great menu selections.
Good food with good friends!
Great food and some nice wines. Spare ribs were amazing
Great place for dinner, food was outstanding...nice in that it’s off the beaten tract
This restaurant has clean lines and urban decor. Attractive. Menu is broad and the food was quite good. Our server friendly and helpful. The major reason for my average review is the noise level! My friend and I could barely hear each other. It certainly didn’t help that a very loud rambunctious party of 12 was seated right next to us. We will not return due to that issue. Too bad because it’s a cool place.
Came to Northside Social for a small celebration and wasn’t disappointed with the overall experience. Our party ordered the buffalo cauliflower, cornbread, wedge salad, ribs and brisket. All were good, the brisket and ribs were very moist and fell apart in our mouth. The buffalo cauliflower was good, if you don’t like cauliflower don’t order because the taste isn’t masked by the buffalo. Wedge was delicious and cornbread is a must. Overall the experience was enjoyable, and would recommend for a special night out.
Great experience as always. Consistent good quality food and service. Thanks!
I had beer brisket, excellent. Daughter and wife had Shrimp and Grits again excellent, sauce was great. Our friend had lamb shank, she also enjoyed. Son in law had fried chicken, it was good but not as special. The server was very helpful and very attentive. We think this is best restaurant in Indianapolis.
We had the bacon appetizer which was great apart from the McGriddle kept breaking apart.
Wedge salad was a wedge salad, but on point with the dressing.
Bacon Mac and cheese tasted grainy like the cheese was over cooked.
Lowcountry Boil was fantastic, was served without a spoon and I think needed some more bread fro the juices.
Overall fantastic early evening dinner! Will definitely going back to try more menu items.
I took my daughter to Northside Social for a special dinner a week before her wedding. Everythng about the evening was superb.
Great place to dine and relax.
Love love this restuarant. The ribs are to die for and I do not order ribs anyplace else. The sides of whippy potato salad and those brussel sprouts-SOOO GOOD! I could make just that a meal. You get plenty of food so make sure you are hungry when you go. My son had the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection for his liking. He especially loved the potatoes au gratin. the Chocolate trifle for dessert was amazing. So creamy with the warm brownie mad the perfect ending to the meal.
Can't wait to go back.
Attentive service, interesting dinner menu as well as their signature drinks
Our first time visiting for my fiance's birthday. We were very impressed. The decor was great. Dinner selections were palate pleasing. We can't wait to return with our friends and family. Customer service was unlike any other place we've dined before. Loved everything about this place!
We had a good experience here. Waitress was very nice and efficient and the food was good. It was our first time going and we'll probably be back!!
Was disappointed in the new way the potato crusted whitefish is being presented. The original dish was so much better. There is no need to change a perfect dish. Please bring back the original whitefish dish!!
My wife and a good buddy and I went to have a nice dinner . We initially were seated at a table inside . He is hearing impaired and it was too noisy for him with all the bscjground noise. It was not unexpected and would have been ok for just the 2 of us. We asked if we could be moved outside . There was a table that just opened up and we were quickly reseated with no problem whatsoever. Food was fabulous and we had very good service. The size of the entrees were large and both my buddy and I took some home (and we both normally can finish large meals).
It was a wonderful evening . Thanks
Great food and service as always. Sat our party of 3 next to a party of 15 who were very loud even though there were other tables available. Had to ask to be moved.
