I visited Socrates with my girlfriend and my brother and had possibly one of the longest visits ever. I was here about 10 hours drinking beer and eating. We came early and ordered an iced coffee with ice cream and my girlfriend loved it. It was so good my girlfriend ordered another one later that night.

Then my brother shows up and the beer drinking begins. We ordered about a dozen bottles of Stella Artois and the markup was a bit much. Thankfully we got some nuts and chips with every other order to make the price a bit more palpable.

The service was pretty good. I mean for being there for 10 hours the staff gave us a lot of attention. A finger up came to mean give me another beer. The seating outside is nice, but the seats are not particularly comfortable especially for 10 hours of seating.

We also ordered a big pizza to share and it was pretty good, but like most things at the restaurant it was a bit expensive.

When it came time to pay I was super surprised that they didn't accept credit card. A place this overpriced should accept credit cards. But this place is popping. There was a ton of people in here most of the time I was there and the staff was very nice. The bathrooms are clean and it was a nice corner to people watch.
