We were greeted promptly with handsome smiles. My salad was awesome the selection was great! Grilled salmon yum! The server was happy to let me try various salad dressings, all were nice but I focused on my favorite. The restaurant decorations were interesting and comfortable. I am looking forward to going back. Bravo!

Social has a unique menu that also offers healthy choices such as the Kale salad which is a huge hit amongst the locals.

Food is ok and nothing special. It is a bit crowded and noisy. The outside section is much better than inside. Needs more staff specially during weekends.

Great location in beautiful Birmingham. Great crafted cocktails and a make your own Bloody Mary bar. Had a delicious kale and quinoa salad topped with Salmon. The breakfast skillets were also amazing.

Me and the wife had the build-your-own salads. Very tasty. Extensive ingredient list to choose from. Had great flank steak on mine. Decent service.

We had brunch on a Saturday morning with our baby girl. The staff was all very welcoming and helpful. Food was good - make with fresh produce, well cooked and presented in skillets - we really liked the principle of making our own (you pick and choose from a list when placing your order) and both our meals were delicious....

First, try the cocktails. The white sangria and the Morado margarita are flavorful and fruit forward! We sat outside and enjoyed their music selections. It wasn't crowded on this afternoon. Seating is simple but comfortable. Danny, our waiter recommended the highly nuanced and wonderfully textured "egg sandwich". It was superb! Do try the Mac n cheese. Highly recommended for brunch!

Just had dinner here with out of town friends. Most everyone enjoyed their choices. One pasta, chicken and turkey burger were ordered. Turkey burger spicier than average. Chicken and pasta portion were very large - but tasty. My husband had the short rib french dip and felt the dipping sauce was too sweet and would not order again. We had... More
