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. If Central is open, so is our kitchen. The full menu is available open to close, 7 days a week.

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.

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.

Our waitress wasn’t really good and actually didn’t care about taking our order. Also, the music was really loud, even for a place like this type.

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.

Very inattentive server for us on our date night. Food was okay; found the Poke bowl to be too soggy and salty. Maybe just an off night.

The location is great and the service is okay, but the food is so subpar,not worth the money at all. The salad didn’t have any seasoning and the veggies inside were really unfresh and soggy. The chicken sandwich is too sweet and again,didn’t taste fresh.

We had waited at our table for about 25 minutes before I got up and asked for a server. We had about three different servers and at the end of our meal the server proceeded to flirt with a man at the bar for 15 minutes instead of bringing us our bill.
Was not a good experience with our server.

A small group of us went and sat on the patio for dinner, there were only 4 tables seated on the patio too. The table above was loud and all in all killed the mood, the waitress seemed to favourite them as she did the limbo with them in the middle of the aisle and did a shot with them. She practically neglected us for them, she was able to get our drink order relatively quickly but it took her 30-35 minutes to come back to take our food orders and from there it was rare to see her for another drink. The food was pretty good but was definitely not worth the terrible service

The music was so loud that it was difficult to hear out waitress. It was a struggle to have a decent conversation. We had to wait for about 15 minutes with an empty glass before the last drink was served. The food menu had very limited main course options.

Our Moscow mules tasted like actual soda water. No beer or vodka that I could taste. And the chicken tacos were dry and tasted old. Not a fan.

We have been going to both locations since the very first day they opened!
We love the fact that there is almost always something new to try on the menu!
Whether it be good or drink, it’s nice to have new options all of the time!

The staff is great, the owners are amazing, and we have never once had a bad experience here!

I was there this past friday. It has become my must go place for weekends. They also have a patio that is great for the hot summers. They have in my opinion a diverse tasty menu that goes from a fusion tuna bowl (I had it this last time) to crispy chicken. I think they have made a colossal effort in keeping the bar vibe (pre covid). Junaid (bartender) will give u best recommendations for drinks if u sit at the bar and if you go for a table and get Amy as your server you are in the best hands. She is very personal and remembers you from previous visits. They also have a happy hour :D
