THE SOCIAL BAR AND TABLE
A delicious meal on the patio with great service! We enjoyed some Ontario craft beer with our meal too and loved the Creme Brûlée for dessert!
Very relaxed vibe with excellent food. I would definitely recommend for Sunday brunch.
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
Food was amazing! Service was excellent! Will definitely return!
Delish! Service was great and lovely patio! Would definitely go back!
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.
This was our second visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was spot on and the atmosphere lively and inviting. A new local favourite for us. Highly recommend a reservation.
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.
Place is great!
Tables too close together. Ambiance is quaint and that is the charm of the place.
Enjoyed the food. Will be back again
Great spot for great food. We wanted a light lunch, so shared the shrimp tacos and a bowl of curried mussels. Warm welcoming service. Friendly crowd.
Great evening, friendly staff, excellent food
small, intimate environment. a great place to meet up with friends and be social. delicious food and great service. will definitely come again and recommend.
Great place. The steak and lamb shank that we ordered were absolutely delicious. A very quaint location and really good vibe. We will definitely eat here again.
Had a great lunch at this quaint Port Hope restaurant. Lots of local fare and great craft brews. 2 thumbs up.
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.
We were so glad to have found this on the internet! We really enjoyed our lunch!
Great little spot with creative dishes and cocktails. Reserve a table as there are only a few, but seriously worth it
Wonderful dining experience! I had the fish and chips, while my partner had the lamb. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious. Will definitely be back to try more from the menu here.
Every visit is fun and friendly and is a great food experience
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 favourite restaurant. Servers make us feel so welcome. Everything on the menu is amazing. This place just feels like home. Can’t help but rave about it to everybody we know.
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
Special menu food was wonderful and the service was great
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!
We had a wonderful time with friends! Great food, awesome service!
Excellent beef brisket, excellent fries, great beer and a good atmosphere. We'll be back!
Went for husband's birthday and it was wonderful. Food was excellent. Service was great. Would go again when we are back in Port Hope.
I thought this little gem of a restaurant was wonderful. From the throw cozy blankets to the wonderful food and service, certainly a place I would want to visit again in the future.
We ( 2 retired couples) had supper at The Social prior to going to the Capitol theatre. The bar is small but cute and appropriately decorated. It was a little loud at first due to customers at the bar (and since it is a small place you are close to the bar regardless where you sit) but the atmosphere was so friendly that you didn't really mind. The service was great and the menu, while not large had enough choice to satisfy everyone. My only disappointment was that a beef sandwich mentioned on the website menu was absent from the in restaurant menu. I had the reuben on house bread instead and it was very good. Others had the hamburger and beef bourguignon and said they were very good. I would recommend this restaurant for casual drinks and dinner or lunch.
We were out with friends to dine before the theatre and we had a wonderful time—great menu!
We had our anniversary dinner at the social, the waiter was very friendly and the food was excellent! We got recommendations from our Airbnb host, it’s her daily place they have a bar to sit and it worked perfect for our anniversary at the table.
The stewed beef was definitely a plus, melted in my mouth taste delicious!
We hadn't been to The Social before but their brunch menu looked appealing with a few possible vegan options (with some adaptations). When we arrived I asked our server to turn the music down (my mother in law was with us and has difficulty hearing in noisy situations). The chef was happy to make a few changes to his dishes to satisfy all of our needs and our server arranged a vegan birthday cake I had brought, very nicely on a plate, with some fresh fruit and candles. The food was delicious and we had a lovely time.
I booked a reservation for 3 via open table several days prior to arriving on what would be a busy day since there was a house tour that day. When we arrived they didn't have a table a
for us and then gave us a song and dance about whether or not they knew about the reservation. I showed them the confirmation on my phone and they didn't disagree that they had the booking - seemed like they hadn't checked it? Overall they seemed very disorganized and ill prepared for the crowds that day. Eventually we were seated at the bar where we sat out our meal (never moved to a table as promised). We were surprised that nothing was comped given the inconvenience. Lots of other good places to try in the area.
I love coming here when I get a chance! The food and atmosphere are always good. Great place to meet clients and conduct business lunches!
Our server was very good. Nice menu. Good environment. Wanted a few more selections on the wine list. Thank you for a nice evening.
Delicious food! Lovely atmosphere! Fantastic service! So happy I was recommended this restaurant. I will definitely be back when in town again!
I ordered the fish and chips . Fish batter was soggy , not crisp and fresh . Chips were good though .My wife’s wild mushroom and shrimp, heavy on the garlic, light on the shrimp , and super soggy wild mushrooms. Service was great .
We always enjoy this local eatery ... consistently delicious food, relaxed and cosy vibe, and great service.
