Mussels were fabulous. Service was good... in spite of the place being full... well done. Just a great vibe and a wonderful place.

We went for lunch with another couple. Mussels and trout were out of stock, which was a shame because they cook them perfectly. The shrimp and noodle salad was terrific, as was the wine! The chicken sandwiches were unfortunately overcooked and the fees were too. Service was excellent. Certainly will go again. Make a reservation, they are really quite busy, which is also a good sign

Can't wait to go back. It was our anniversary and they treated us to champagne. We were too full for dessert. Had the buttermilk chicken and it was delicious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Social. We ate indoors as one of our invites isn’t with Good without outside temperatures. The inside noise level was perfect as allowed a table of 5 to talk comfortably.

Absolutely worth the drive! It's cozy and comfortable. Staff were absolutely amazing! Very attentive, friendly and welcoming. This was out first time here and they made us feel like we were regulars.
My compliments to the chef as well as the food was flavourful and rustic. You could really taste the care, passion and attention to detail in every bite.
Will definitely be returning here soon!

Seating was uncomfortable and we were put at small table where I couldn’t even pull my chair out. Tried another table and the chairs were high and directly above the cold air return. We left without ordering

Great little restaurant in Port Hope! Met up with family here for lunch and everyone really enjoyed their meals. We had the fish & chips, Burger, mac & cheese, and fried chicken. Everyone's meals were wonderful and arrived at the same time. Great local beer menu as well. Would highly recommend.

The appy was really great I had Brie and a onion reduction. I ordered the special which was perch and sunchokes purée. It was ok, but nothing to write home about. My friend loved her crispy chicken sandwich. I wish I would have ordered that. I ordered a decalf coffee didn’t find out until after I drank it that is was an americano. Let’s just say I didn’t sleep that night. Our server was awesome though, I never complained about the coffee so that’s my fault. My review of this place would be average.

Tables too close together. Ambiance is quaint and that is the charm of the place.
Enjoyed the food. Will be back again

Excellent overall experience. Good wine list to accompany food (which was excellent). Service exceptional. Just needs some more relevant choice for appetizers...fries or poutine don't cut it here.

Always enjoyable. Only 2 patrons in on a Monday evening. Like anywhere really I find the cost of a glass of wine too high. Maybe offer a carafe of a house wine. Thank you.

Our server was very friendly and professional. I had the poutine as usual. Without a doubt the best poutine anywhere. It is very busy so I would recommend making a reservation

Nice, casual restaurant/bar with very good service. It is the only restaurant that I have received a follow up thanking us for our patronage...they care. The Social aspect is very important to them as our family party remained long after finishing our meals for socializing.

We love the Social so much! Seating is very limited so it’s best to always make a reservation, but it’s well worth it! Our favorite place in town with the best fries and basil mayo!
