The Brussel sprouts are great. Great bar and drink selection. Get there early if you want a seat. Menu is limited but everything on it was fantastic.

Although every visit has not been perfect, most visits to Social Kitchen have been excellent. The food is good and so is the service. There is seating outdoors, semi-outdoors, and indoors. The ambience is nice.

Was talked into the burger by the bartender who claimed it as the "best burger, ever." Amazingly it lived up to it. Top 3 cheeseburger I've ever had, topped with fried egg and bacon. Fun atmosphere, and bartender Chris was all-time.

We had reservations at 7 for 7 people. We arrived a few minutes after 7 and were told that they would have to get our table ready. I'm not sure why it wasn't already set because no one was sitting there and it was clean....More
