    Second time we were with you and we enjoyed this much better. Food and service first time was was “OK” and noise level was high. Decided to give you a second chance and we were delighted with our experience. Food was excellent this time and our server was fantastic! Shawn was friendly, enthusiastic and very personable. We’d go back again just to visit with Shawn and get an update on Walter and Elephant! Thanks!

    We ate simple.. Burgers and Chicken sand. Husband enjoyed beer selection..which is important for him. Service was very good.....BUT i did comment when there and have to say here as well...for the prices paid the Buns for the burgers/sandwiches MUST be improved. They were barely warm and "wrinkled" I buy better buns at Costco.. Also another option for dipping for the fries would be good..bbq sauce blaach. A mayo/garlic aioli would be great. The beet salad was very tasty. Seriously though..do something about the buns.. I hope this spot works out because Belleville is in desperate need of an upscale eatery that is NOT a chain

    I had the cod fishcakes and the simple greens salad. The cakes were bland, well portioned and seared nicely. The salad was generous, but the undersized plate made it quite messy to eat and the dressing was far too acidic, with no balance, even though the salad was undressed. My dining partner liked her chicken sandwich. I tried her fries, which were tasty but overcooked and dry inside.

    The food at the Local Social House was fantastic. The chef working brunch knows exactly how to make the perfect eggs Benny breakfast. My only issue is the price of drinks. I had a mimosa, which was $14.00 for 1. In any major city $14 for a drink at brunch would be bottomless.

    We had an amazing Mother's Day Bruch! We would highly recommend the Brunch menu. Food was delicious, service was second to none. Jack did a great job making sure we were well taken care of. Leah was on top of everything, checking in and chatting it was a lovely way to spend Mother's day!

    I am writing this as a former Restaurant/Hotel Owner. The noise level with live music for Mothers Day made it impossible to hear and speak. We were seated 1 four in front of the performers. The portion size for the French Toast was ridiculously large and was more like sliced bread with Brie in the middle. The Duck Hash was extremely salty and the duck was grisly. Then the bill hit mixed up. I felt badly fir the server as he was young and needed training. There seems to be a mixed message in this restaurant. Is it a pub or higher end dining?

    Great views of the river, comfortable seating, excellent service by Tanner, wings were meaty and tender. Prices higher than expected which reduces value. Limited parking requires finding a space off-site in a sketchy neighbourhood.

    Great atmosphere service was good food was good nice view of river overall very good A bit pricey but pretty much on par with most other fine dining places Nice to support something in downtown Belleville as it is struggling and good places to eat that aren’t all the same is rare we often drive to Kingston but would love more like this in Belleville

    First time at The Local Social House, Friday night date night and was not disappointed. The staff and servers very friendly, the interior while small is modern crisp and bright, with full window views of river. The noise level is a little loud, but the live guitar music helped to balance it out and added nice background. We ordered the deep fried pickles which were over cooked & a little too crispy, but the sauce with them was good. We both ordered the smash burger with fries, delicious toppings and well cooked, both were hot and good size portions. The menu is a little limited, so hopefully it will be added to as time goes by and they grow confident in their clientele. Can’t wait to come back and try the outside patio over the river when it is finished. Overall it was a good experience for a relatively newly opened restaurant, we will be back!

    Sabrina was a great server. Wish that the menu would be a little larger. Perhaps changes will happen in the summer. Pickerel was delicious, however my husband’s smash burger wasn’t great , over cooked and fries not hot, not a good value for the price. Lovely location and will give it another try.

    Small new local spot we wanted to try for our Anniversary. We had the Steak and Local Salad. Food was overpriced but the atmosphere was very nice overlooking the water. I guess that's what you are paying for but overall probably would not visit again.

    The inside is nice, it is noisy though. The noise level from other tables is quite loud. They were quite busy and they accommodated us with a 630 seating, which was very nice. Presentation of the food was beautiful. I had ordered the deep fried pickles but the breading was thick and it wasn't crispy at all. Portion sizes were good and we were both stuffed. We ordered the creme brulee for desert. The top was burnt too much, instead of having that light crunch it was dark brown and very crunchy. I will try this restaurant again once it irons out some of its bugs.

    I TOOK MY GF ON A DATE NIGHT AND FOUND THE FOOD EXCELLENT. THE RESTAURANT WAS VERY CLEAN AND BRIGHT . I FEEL MAYBE THE LARGE DRAFT I HAD AT $10 BUCKS A GLASS WAS A LITTLE STEEP WHEN YOU CAN GET SAME SIZE GLASS AT OTHER RESTAURANTS/BARS FOR $6.50/7 DOLLARS . THAT WILL NOT DETER ME FROM COMING BACK BUT JUST A NOTE TO OWNERS IS ALL .

    I will start by saying I had a hamburger and it was very good I felt it was overpriced though. The menu is limited and expensive. I feel that the restaurant is trying to be fine dining but missing the mark with overpriced limited menu and mediocre decor. I would definitely choose other locations in the area for fine dining over this place. The staff was friendly and appeared to be lots working but yet it was still difficult to get somebody to come take a drink order or food order. This would be a much nicer place if it was marketed as a pub and the food selection was better and more reasonably priced including the drinks

    People should be warned the charcuterie is 42 dollars and massive. It's nestled amount 12-15 dollar "starters", but there is no way that is starter size or starter price. It's very deceiving.

    The service was rushed. We received the entrees before we were even halfway through the appetizer. The entire time we felt we had to finish for the next table service time. Aside from that the restaurant is excellent.

    Everything was perfect. The short ribs were fabulous, as were the fresh veg and unique potatoe that came with it. Everything was homemade, including the pesto, which was delicious, and locally sourced. Wait staff was awesome. The only room for improvement I can mention is that I specifically booked a regular table on this app, but was seated at a high table.

    The noise level was exceptionally high. We made reservations but were not asked if we would like a specific type of table and ended up being sat in the bar on a Friday night. The high top tables are not comfortable as I am short and currently have knee injury. As there were no other options, we had to take what we were given.

    Nice modern aesthetic. Went around 5:30 pm and we were put at a high table by the bar. Nice table but the drunk at the bar was so loud and obnoxious we asked to be moved. Was surprised the bartender was ok with him so long. Got a simple but nice table at the window overlooking the river. Waitress was pleasant and took drink and food orders pretty quickly. Waited over an hour for food. So I asked for the salad we planned to share as a starter and our waitress seemed surprised we wanted it first but then went and got it. My husbands cauliflower Marsala was very good. I got the black truffle Mac n cheese. It came 5-6 mins after my hubby’s meal. Was a small crock dish of fine mac n cheese but no truffle taste at all. Simple mixed greens with olive oil as a side Felt for $28 overpriced for size and nothing special. Is an ok restaurant but I think trying to be higher end with high price and doesn’t have the experience and nuances of dining associated with those prices, compared with what’s located so close in Prince Edward County or locally the Lark. Fine but won’t rush back.
