                                    The hostess was gracious, responsive to all of our requests. The food was glorious, simple pub grub made with outstanding local ingredients and imagination. I have recommended it to all of our friends.

                                    I had a lovely lunch with friends and both food and service were wonderful. We did not feel rushed and were able to have a good visit. Would definitely recommend The Social!

                                    The food is delicious, but this is a TINY, crowded and loud place. The floor slopes and you’re either pitched forward or leaning back. We were going to leave but they kindly offered to move us to the back room which was much quieter but that area wasn’t officially open so it was cold and dark.

                                    Stumbled across this place online, and booked it for a lunch date. A quaint cute little find! A very intelligent and well managed menu. A smart wine list. Great service, and great food! Whether you’re spending a few days in Port Hope enjoying theater, or just passing through perhaps on your way to Kingston or beyond it is well worth a stop.

                                    Excellent food, excellent and friendly service! Small area for tables and our first one was by the door so very cold when people were coming in and out of the building. We were kindly switched to a table by the window before our main course arrived. Much better temp but the floor and table were on a noticeable slant so a wee bit uncomfortable. Still, overall a really nice meal and great service.

                                    We really enjoyed our first experience. The entire evening at the Social was great and we will go again and we would definitely recommend the Social. It would be great if there were a few more items to choose from on the menu. However we understand that at this time there are definitely supply issues for everyone and this could be influencing this matter. Thank you

                                    Favorite "Go To" place for our drive to Ottawa! Great, friendly staff and their food is excellent, their Basil Mayo (printed on the wall, so take a picture) compliments the best Fish and Chips I can remember.

                                    Dinner prior to going to a show in town. The server knew how long we had for our dinner and didn't rush us. The food was very good (lamb shank and salmon). When the wine I ordered was no longer available, a good substitute was suggested.

                                    Most of the meal was amazing (as usual) but the fried potato patty (don't recall the name of it) was bland. This will not deter us from returning as we LOVE The Social!!

                                    This place was soooo loud!!! For saying there is limited seating and a quaint space, the noise was almost unbearable at times. We had a reservation for 2, and were put at the end of the bar (after being told there would be a large group coming in, utilizing the tables) it was on ok spot, cozy, but we were finished our drinks, meal and left the restaurant and still didn’t see anyone at either table. Would have maybe made for a much nicer dinner conversation and acceptable noise level had we been able to sit at a table. The service, beer selection and food were outstanding, just a shame that because we were only 2, we didn’t warrant being able to sit at a table.

                                    Food and service was excellent. The venue is small and quaint. Great place for social gathering yet maybe not the ideal place for a date, as the noise level is quite high.

                                    We had hear about the restaurant but in the end found it under-whelming. There was also a glass of wine that was off.

                                    Wine options are priced too high for area and vintage. Food is always fabulous.

                                    The noise level was way over the top and we couldn’t hear each other. I had the chicken sandwich and it was full of fat and grizzle. I did like the fries but won’t be back

                                    Have really enjoyed the Social in the past. This time was a huge disappointment. Burger undercooked, bun toasted till it crumbled. Service not very friendly and having reserved we got the worst table in the place. Will not be back.
