Gastro Pub
More than just a restaurant or bar, Central Social Hall is the place that brings everybody together. Be
corporate or be casual. Come for lunch hour or happy hour. Locally owned and operated, Central is your
Saturday night and your Sunday brunch. We believe good conversation is an essential part of a great night out.

Our scratch-made menu is a modern and innovative take on traditional pub food and restaurant classics. And, our curated craft cocktail list, 24 beers and 12 wines on tap will keep your experience flowing.

Our restaurants are engineered for interaction, with lots of private booths, long dining tables, and dozens of screens showing the game of the night or rotating quirky conversation-starting facts. For friends and fine fare, it’s Central Social Hall.

Was nice to have a night out in an environment that was keeping to the covid rules but still felt like an old school, pre-covid night out. Food, service and atmosphere was awesome. Wish the place could stay open later.

The service was horrible, we asked for the bill, 40 mins later it’s comes and then she forgot the machine and went to get it for us and it took her 30 mins to come back. They didn’t come to see or ask how the food was. We got attended only once when she was taking our order. Then I had to go to the front to ask for the bill because we were sitting for almost 2 hours.

Stopped in for Brunch on a Saturday Food was excellent. There was a little bit of a wait to pay the bill but the circumstances were unique Totally understandable. We will return and try the main menu next time. Great experience.

We always been here but on valentines dinner food was not tasting good at all we both were sick after eating. This time had very bad experience with whatever we ordered except wings. Also we ordered starters and main course but instead of bringing in starters first they brought both together out. So in a meanwhile we had starters our main course was cold had to ask for new one. Very unsatisfied specially because it was valentines dinner as it was our special time ☹️

our serving was extremely inattentive. We were trying to create conversation with her and she wanted nothing to do with it. How slow she was definitely affected our visit. It was not busy when we were dining

An outstanding first outing to this downtown gem.

The food was absolutely fantastic—hot and tasty, well-portioned, and done exactly the way we’d asked for it. There was more than enough variety to choose from on the menu, and we were both extremely satisfied with what we’d ordered. The service was equally praiseworthy, and all of the staff were very friendly, attentive, and welcoming throughout our entire visit. You’d have never known that this was the first time the dining area had been opened up in almost two months (due to the government COVID-19 closures)—everything ran smoothly, and the place was meticulously clean and tidy.

Although we would definitely recommend trying anything off of the menu, we particularly enjoyed the chicken wings and the homemade doughnuts. The former helped take the edge off of a frigid -30 degree night, while the latter was the perfect finish to a great meal.

Without a doubt, this was one of our best restaurant experiences in Edmonton, and we look forward to coming back again sometime very soon!

Our ever was absolument lovely. Thé food was delicious. The establishment was clean. There was space between customers. The brunch coupon was a great special. The online reservation system was user friendly. I received digital reminders for everything too.

The music was so load you could not hear the person across the table from you. The music selection was horrible and way to loud. The food was typical pub style good but not memorable. My first and last trip to Central Social Hall.

Service was not good. Never got our waters, had to wait with our food on the table for 10 minutes before we got utensils.
My tomato avocado Benny had no avocado, told our server. I never got any like she said I would.
Even with a BOGO it was not worth it.
Only good thing was our drinks.

Hi Jessica, Thank you so much for supporting our locally owned small business! I am very disappointed to hear about your recent experience, especially during brunch which is the most highly regarded part of our food program. We take great care and attention in designing and training our food and service programs, but it's clear we missed the mark here. Please call or email me at the store so we can connect on this experience, and I can do my best to earn your business again! Cheers, Vance

We enjoyed the food but I was very unimpressed with the service. Anytime we needed our server she was no where to be found, items that we ordered were forgotten. Beautiful venue but customer service could be better.
