We had a party of 4. We ordered the Buffalo cauliflower and the meatballs appetizers. Both were fantastic! We all had something different as an entree and none of us were disappointed!

Another excellent dining experience at Northside Social. We haven't been here for a few months and there are quite a few new additions to the menu. Friends had the Mussels and Frites which was on the starter menu for $16 and the helping was large and they loved it. I had two starters, the southern style crab dip and the meatballs. Both were fantastic and I brought home leftovers so it was a good size portion. I don't remember pizza being on the menu before but it is now. Our other friend had the Social Supreme pizza and said it was very good. This restaurant uses local Indiana farms for their meats and bakery items. Love that. Our waiter, I think maybe Tracy, we've had him several times. Very good waiter always. This is such a gem in Broad Ripple in an area that you don't have to worry about parking. Looking forward to our next trip.

Elegantly chic and modernly styled dining room. We walked in for the very first time and said to one another, “this is a great start.” Great first impression. The hostess was charming and offered another table if so desired. We opted out but appreciate this sort of gesture.
Our server was Scott. He did a fine job. He kept the flow going well and adeptly adapted when we began to slow down with our consumption of amazing cocktails and melt in your mouth dishes.
I had the Stout Braised Brisket with peas, carrots, served on mashed potatoes and covered in the most amazing brown gravy. Doesn’t sound like anything special right? My God was I amazed by this dish! The brisket was falling apart on the fork, so tender and flavorful. The gravy itself reminded me of my Mom’s but better! Sorry Mom.
My wife had a great meal and a memorable birthday dinner thanks to Our time spent at The Northside Social. Great staff. Delicious food and wonderful cocktails. Thank you all.

I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary. The location is great. The interior is very low key and romantic. Service was impeccable. Food was top notch. We got two apps, two salads, two entrees, a dessert and a bottle of champagne. It was a really wonderful experience as first time guests. The only complaint was a table of drunk old people that were being super loud but that was tolerable. I highly recommend this place. We’ll definitely be back to try more of the menu.
