6 of us stopped in for a quick lunch. Food was delicious and loved the flavours and slight twist of each dish. Restaurant is small but cozy. Please, fix your tables! So annoying when the legs are off balanced and drinks are juggling around. A...little thing to fix, annoying to have to sit at! Would definitely go back when back in the area. ThanksMore

Small quaint local farm to table restaurant The service was very friendly and helpful. There are a couple of specials in addition to the menu. We all enjoyed our entries and the environment. Very small and intimate so good place for a quiet dinner where...you can have a conversation. Very accommodating with food sensitivities.More

Prior to the theatre we agreed to have an early glass of wine and an appetizer. Upon arrival we were seated promptly. I would call this restaurant more Social than a Romantic getaway. Can be a bit noisy as the seating is limited. We ordered...two 6 oz. Glasses of wine and a warmed brie with crackers. Good wine and the appetizer hit the spit. Good value and good service.More

My wife, step daughter and I decided to try the Social Bar for dinner. My wife ordered the spicy chicken sandwich, my step daughter had a steak salad and I ordered the Seafood Chowder. The food and service was very good.

We loved this place! Truly farm-to-table, the food was so fresh and so good. We had burgers, and they were perfectly prepared. Great service, good wine and beer selection.

My friends and I enjoyed an amazing dinner! We started with an appetizer consisting of Brie, homemade crostinis and fruit spread. Very delicious. Our dinner choices were: (1) Steak Salad: mouthwatering. The steak (medium rare) was exceptional. (2) Red Curry Cod: very tasty. (3) Pappardelle:...peas, prosciutto, arugula with creamy white wine sauce on pasta. The service was outstanding. Make sure you reserve a table as it has very limited seating. The only negative: it can be very noisy as it is a small place. The bar and kitchen are open concept. Enjoy!More

Arrived at our B&B in Port Hope late and wandered down to the main street. Just stumbled on The Social and enjoyed a yummy plate of baked Brie with homemade cranberry sauce and crustini. Service was friendly as the atmosphere was casual. Had it been...slightly warmer, we would have enjoyed the outdoor patio.More

The bad atmosphere was only when the former chef was working, which should be obvious if you read the post.
