The staff here is thoughtful and friendly. The food is good for the price. Not great, but certainly not average.

“Best Cocktail Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Work your way through it starting w Chad Phillips' signature Beet Me In St Louis. They use this burly juicer to make all their bases, including for Bloody Marys, which are awesome. Chad has a fine tasting rum option on the menu with three rums from the late 80s aged in Scotland. You get an ounce poor of each for $27. Loved that. He has the menu divided up into groupings to help you decided based on what you're feeling: Crisp & Light, Aromatic, Full & Robust,etc. And he always has one Forgotten Classic, usually obscure but fun to try cocktail.

“My Sister's Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Last week Wednesday was my sister's birthday and we decided to try out a new spot, taking advantage of the Miami Spice Menu. Since neither my sister nor myself eat red meat (we eat poultry and seafood) we were looking for a menu with a good variety and many choices so that everyone will be satisfied. The Social Club's menu therefore attracted us and from the minute we arrived, we felt as though we were VIPs. The staff was super friendly and my sister was handed a complimentary glass of bubbly for her birthday. Since it was 7 of us, we tried to order different items off the menu to sample but the Ceviche Appetizer was too tempting to pass up for many of us. Everything on menu was fantastic, not average but fantastic!! The seared snapper entree was cooked to perfection! I have never been to Miami Spice but I imagined the meals for the price would be smaller but these weren't and by the time desert came we were full and contented. They even put a candle in my sister's cake without us even asking them too. Serena, the Manager, came over and introduced herself to us not long after we got there and she was so professional and courteous throughout the entire night, totally ensuring that my sister had a great birthday. To top it off we were given a round of shots!! My sister said it was a perfect birthday!!! Thank you Social Club and staff we would definitely be back. Job well done!!

“Surprisingly great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I was really surprised with the amazing, generous food portions and friendly, attentive service. Nina was so nice on the phone when I called to make our reservations that I had a good feeling about the Social Club. Never been here before and wanted to try after being captivated by the delicious, multiple options from their Miami Spice menu. If you enjoy seafood, this is the place to try. I started with the panko crusted oysters; heavenly. My favorite was the seared snapper (a real whole filet) cooked to perfection with the crunchy, outer skin; oh so divine. The coconut flan is the perfect ending. Be prepared to actually feal full when all is sadly done, these are not pinky sized portions, you will not leave hungry. I will be returning back to try the other selections with my friends. Last but not least, Louis was stupendous and recommended and awesome Prosecco. Thanks Louis, see you soon.
