If you are looking for a holiday brunch buffet, this is not the place to go. Came here on Mother’s Day. Buffet had only had scrambled eggs and French toast. Only side was bacon. No omelettes, no waffles, no pancakes, no sausage. Only non breakfast food was salmon and fried chicken. No carving station. Nothing. Only 1 vegetable choice and a bowl of fruit. Is this was $15.00 then I wouldn’t have an issue but it was very disappointing for the price we paid. Many other places to go for brunch buffet than here.

Went for Mother’s Day brunch. I was not told that it would be a buffet. The quality of the food was about the level of a holiday end. At $32 a person I wish I was giving more options.

Incredible food. Terrific service. My only drawback was the medium rare Ribeye arrived medium. Before sending it back I tasted it. It was very tender and great flavor. By the time I finished it, the steak was well done... yet still tender. Next time I will send it back.

Our server was spectacular and we will certainly be back soon.

I miss the bassa but I think the overall menu has actually improved. Looking forward to my next visit.

Fantastic! Because of other obligations we had to dine right as they opened. I think it would have been weird to be the only people there except the staff especially our waitress, Rhonda, were awesome. Every dish was delicious and cocktails divine. Our favorite place in Indy that reminds us of our favorite place in Chicago. Hard to beat Northside Social.

Our waitress was wonderful. Friendly and fun. Give her a raise (short hair, brownish hair, think she said she just had it cut that way). We were at a table just before the raised dining room.

Really cool atmosphere! We and another couple chose this spot for a date night based on the recommendation of a foodie friend of ours. We are so glad we did. An incredible variety of amazing entree’s that we all sampled from one another. The menu is southern inspired with rich and unique entree items accentuated by deliciously complimentary sides. The pork belly and white bbq shrimp apps are must haves. We’ll be back soon to try the entrees we didn’t get covered between the 4 of us.

Everything was wonderful! The menu was creative, and it changes seasonally. We can't wait to go back to try more dishes. The service was great! The waitress was informed about the food, and was there whenever we needed her, but she wasn't hovering.

The noise of the large group sitting at the adjacent table detracted slightly from my wife's and my anniversary celebration, but our meal was delicious and our server, Mark, was superb: his friendliness, kindness, helpfulness (excellent recommendations) and attentiveness made our experience very special indeed.

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 wasn't 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.

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.
