When my wife and I visited North Vancouver we were told that Browns Socialhouse was a great place. We took the advice and visited on a very busy Friday evening. We didn't wait long for our table which was a pleasant surprise. The young lady that served our table was very friendly and personable. My wife and I took an... More

We had a couple of beers here, as it is a favourite haunt of friends. The salt & pepper wings were lovely, and the beer was as you would hope.

After landing in Vancouver and checking into my hotel, I needed a restaurant that catered to everyone's taste buds. Browns Socialhouse did - and wow! The food was amazing! For (what I later figured out was) a chain restaurant, the service was quite good. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a great selection of food, good service and hip vibe.

I complained bitterly last visit about the too loud music and the lack of attention to our complaints. I threatened to never visit that place again! My advice was to turn the music up after 7:00 when the families have gone home. Someone must actually be listening as I was there with my family at 5;00 on Sunday evening and... More

Two friends and I lunched here earlier this week and I was impressed with the place. I had soup and salad. The cowboy salad was interesting and tasty while the wonton soup was tasty but not hot enough. Both of my lunch partners were pleased with their meals and all of us finished everything on our plates which demonstrated our... More

I had the most satisfying soup (Seafood chowder) and an amazing veggie salad here, on the patio, with nice breeze, beautiful sunshine, lovely smiles of the servers, after a very enjoyable hike in the nearby Lynn Valley. Perfect day! Would recommend to anyone who go to this neighborhood.

We came here for a late night dinner. The restaurant was huge compared to the Brown's on Lonsdale. As soon as we came in we were seated in a huge booth even though there was only two of us. Food came a bit slow but it was worth the wait. The only complaint I have is that the restaurant is... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your dinner! It can get a little noisier later into the evening, but if you are able to visit during an earlier evening, should be a little more intimate. Thank you for taking the time to rate and review! More

A spacious yet intimate restaurant bar which combines comfortable booth seating, ordinary dining tables and a large rectangular 'Cheers'-like with seating surrounding the main bar. The outdoor couch seating with fire boxes in the central coffee tables for each seating area are also nice. Portions are both ample and imaginative; and all the food was delicious. I particularly liked my... More

I have been returning to Browns for social meals with my friends and family and will likely return for more. The service is consistently good with matching good eats. The TAHITIAN TUNA has become a staple dish and i enjoy its consistency. The other BOWL SALADS and Seafood dishes keep me coming back. Good Job. And I cannot forget the... More
