Good food served by friendly staff. They were able to accommodate allergies and suggested alternatives or variations. Comfortable place for various ages from children to seniors. Definitely recommend for lunch.

We love coming to the Social at least once a month, so we had dinner a few weekends ago. Staff members are always helpful, I love the chicken burger & fries with a cold pint of beer. My better half likes the wraps with a tasty glass of wine.

We've walked by many times headed further for a bite or cocktail. How does it happen? We stopped in last night and had a wonderful meal. Service was very good. Value right up there during Happy hour. (3-6) Will be back for sure. I suppose it has something to do with not ever "fishing off your own dock?" Travel across... More

First time visiting and my party had mixed up the reservation. It turned out that we didn't actually have one and needed seats for 10 people. The manager was very accommodating and moved some tables around and just made it work. Was waiting at the bar while they got the table together for quite some time (25 mins) and the... More

WE followed up with Halibut Tacos with a crunchy cole slaw filler and salsa topping and they were great! Nice new facility and staff. OUr server was prompt, friendly and attentive. Reasonably priced... More

Stopped in for lunch on a rainy (surprise!) December afternoon. Had the Halibut Bowl and Blackened Chicken Bowl, both of which were excellent. The brownie was large enough for two; i wished it was large enough for four as it was delicious enough to make me want more. The prices were okay and the service was very good. Brown's Socialhouse...

We stopped for dinner. The service and food were good, it was a nice location with a decent clientele. We weren't there all that long but certainly it was a nice experience.
