The Social Bar + Table is a locally sourced farm to table restaurant in Port Hope, ON! We are proud members of the Feast ON family and work hard every day to live up to those standards. We support local farmers, always fresh, every day. What's on tap? Craft Beer is what we love! We serve brews provided by local and hard working brewers who have brought us the draughts we have come to love and enjoy! Call today to make a reservation or hang out on the patio. Let us how much you loved your stay ;)

Good food, good drink, and good down home service. A limited menu is a good thing! It encourages frequent changes (dare I say, 'seasonal') and it encourages the kitchen to make it good. One of my fav stops for lunch and a drink in the...More

Literally every occasion in have gone to The Social (now weekly) has been a delight. Then, just last night, I arrived and saw the 'new menu', et voilà, my go-to menu item has been replaced. Yes, the glorious fish tacos is now a shrimp tacos!...More

We’ve stopped here twice now for lunch driving between Toronto and Ottawa. I gotta say it’s now our regular stop - food is awesome, and service is great. Nothing fancy, but good comfort food done really well. Looking forward to our next drive...

Food is good, not imaginative or creative but tasty. Service is quite slow. It's a bit overpriced for what it offers. Terrace is very nice.

Stopped by for a late afternoon lunch. Chicken sandwich and salad were tasty. Try the pickerel small plate if it is available- light and flavorful! Friendly staff.

We didn't know what to expect and it was something different for sure. Sandwiches and fries or poutine or salad. I only had a "dinner" size salad. It was a little small for the $14.00, I also had to get some dressing on the side,...More

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