We went on a weeknight for dinner. While its a restaurant / bar, I found the atmosphere to be such that it's more bar that happens to serves some food. For example you enter from the bar and then have to figure out where to go from there. The dining room is a room beyond the bar where I assume... More

Fabulous staff! The carefully crafted menu is small enough to have everything be executed to perfection while still large enough to offer variety for frequent visitors and those with specific food likes and dislikes. Special menus are featured (for example, the first Wednesday of each month is sushi night) and some nights are given over to guest chefs. Art displays... More

From the quality of the drinks to the food to the service, always simply substandard. I went back several times because it was handy to work or events- but always a regret.

My work often does happy hours at Trenton Social. It is a no-frills bar with plenty of seating. The beer selection is decent, and the bartenders are helpful. It's not usually too crowded, and it's easy to find parking. Great place for a happy hour with co-workers!

Nice neighborhood bar with an open, expansive feel . . garden/tables in the back. A safe, moderately enjoyable place to get together and have a drink or snack in the urban wasteland that is Trenton. Good location between downtown and the (empty) stadium area, but the owner/proprietor has a much higher opinion of his business than most of his customers.... More

Wonderful environment for drinks with friends. Supports local artists and musicians. A real community bar atmosphere. Owner is almost always there. Very reasonable prices. Great bar food. Might be the best food in Trenton. Very safe area with on site parking. My favorite place to go in Trenton.

We've been frequenting the Social for a couple years now. Our favorites are the Social Burger, Wings, MacNcheese Balls, Curry Chicken Sandwich, dumplings and Stella Cidre on tap! Each month the Social features a new local artist so it is worth going back again and again for many reasons!

Nice pleasant place. Good atmosphere inside. Drinks & apps were good and reasonably priced. Location not the greatest but for lunch and happy hour it works. Parking could be marked a bit better. I drove around the block a couple times and thought the parking was a paid lot and there was no indication it was for the restaurant. Too... More
