Love this place that’s low country food with a modern twist. Menu changes seasonally. Great cocktails and the calamari steak fries are delicious for an ap. The potato crusted fish with mashed potato and green beans is a favorite and generous enough to share. Only disappointment was the pie for dessert- crust wasn’t up to my standards. Can be crowded on weekends so make a reservation. Worth it.

We have been here two times now. We got the parmasean crusted chicken pasta and have not been disappointed! This time we added the salmon and it was different, but wonderful. I would order again. Did not have alcohol but the coconut cake was delish!

New menu is absolutely extraordinary! Hard time choosing. Had the ribs and they were out of this world and I don't usually get ribs. Literally fell off the bone and so tender and full of flavor. The brussel sprouts and potato salad were a great compliment. Friends had the boil and said if was full of seafood and my other friend had the friend chicken. She said it was the best chicken she's had. Lots of flavor and was greasy. The new chocolate trifle is wonderful. Perfect ending to a great meal that wasn't overly sweet. Can't wait to go back again.

Always a reliable location for small or large groups. Love the variety on the menu and pretty sure I could eat the pimento mac and cheese everyday!

Pay attention to reservation instructions before you seat your guests. Ordered the coconut cake and it wasn’t as fresh as it normally is...Also Long Island Ice Teas are generally in a high ball glass and not a small glass with a ton of ice for $8

Hostess and server were both super. Server was attentive but not too much so. Decor was bright and upscale while the noise level was just right. The wine on special, a Mendocino Valley Zinfandel, was a great value.

That said, the food came out too quick. The wedge salad dressing was sparse and barely made it through eating the small 'half sphere' wedge. The mushroom risotto was soup like. Collared greens were the focus of the shrimp and grits but overpowered the taste. Shrimp and Grits are a signature dish with not enough grits. At least one dissatisfaction could have been avoided if the server had simply said collared green were an unusual twist and the focus.

This is a very comfortable place. We were greeted immediately. The server was knowledgeable and personable. The food was excellent! There were three people in our group and each had a different entrée. All three were nicely prepared and delicious. The menu was creative without being weird! The desserts were fantastic. The lighting levels and the music levels were very nice! Quiet enough for quiet, relaxing conversation. We especially appreciated that. A lovely place. We will return.

Been here before and had a good experience. Not so much this second time. Service was outstanding. Food was mediocre. Meat was extremely fatty, sides were burnt (actually looked and tasted like the bottom of a burnt pan). Dessert was very expensive with very small portions. So far seems like this place is hit or miss. Too expensive to be hit or miss.

The Devour Indy was a great deal. We especially enjoyed the delicious fried chicken, yummy risotto, and heavenly brownie dessert. My only suggestion would be to serve warm potatoes in the middle of winter, not cold potato salad, even though it was quite tasty.

We went for the Indy devour and I order the risotto dish I was a bit disappointed there was not much to it the risotto was good but it was too too salty it came with mushrooms and broccoli in the center and I felt like the proportion of risotto to vegetables was really off. There was a tiny portion of vegetables. so it just didn't really feel like that substantial of a meal . I would definitely advise them to cut down on the salt in the dish because to me it was overwhelming salty. Other meals that I've had at Northside Social have been awesome so I will definitely be going back but I will not be ordering the risotto.

The restaurant had a mix up with bringing the food out so my date had her entree for about 20 minutes before me which was very awkward. The food was good and the potions were generous.
