We waited for water, we waited for a brunch menu, we waited for food, we waited for our drinks. The food arrived 45 minutes into our wait. Our drinks came after we were halfway done with our food. The food was tasty but the hash browns and French fries were quite cool. Not a great experience.

Went out for my birthday , food was subpar. Waitress was hugging people and claimed to be slammed ! Took forever to get drinks. Also for refills.

Beautiful nautical vibe with fresh and clean lines, well appointed. I can’t wait to come and visit in the summer. I recommend the champagne pong!

Loved the atmosphere and the service was excellent. As a vegetarian my choices were limited which I expected. Sad that they ran out of the fried green tomatoes which I was looking forward to. All the food was very good. I took away one star because we both felt our salads were on the dry side. They seemed skimpy with the dressing. And my salad came with goat cheese but only a very small amount. Should have been at least twice as much.

We've been very happy with Atlantic Social since it opened. It's a lovely bright spot with great service and very nice staff. I've always enjoyed the food there. Sadly, and this is mostly my problem, I had a lobster roll there on my last trip in. I adore lobster. They put onions in with the meat. I know for most people that isn't a big deal, but I'm from New England and we don't eat lobster mixed with onions - they don't add to the fabulous flavour of lobster. I can't eat raw onions and now I can't eat their lobster rolls. I wouldn't have ordered it if I had known, but in my experience you don't add them to lobster so I didn't ask. I would love it if they took the onions out of their lobster roll, but I don't expect they will. They should though, from a purist's standpoint. The rest of the food was great and we'll continue going back but sadly, I can't have a lobster roll there any more.

Crab cakes were very good as were scallops. Service was also good. It gets a downgrade for value.

We were the only people in the restaurant for breakfast. We had no breakfast menus, cutlery, napkins, or attention from servers. We had to flag down a busboy twice to find our server. Coffee was luke warm but couldn’t find help to heat up. Orange juice was sour and clearly “ from concentrate”. After 30 minutes of waiting for eggs (omelette and eggs Benedict) and no attention from servers unless we literally shouted across the restaurant, we threw cash on the table and left. Super disappointing

Food was pretty good. Not as good as meals in the past. Loud group, fun time of year out. Lol. My husband's mussels were sorely uncooked. Unfortunate.

Attentive service, nice atmosphere following all the Covid dining protocols to make us feel safe dining inside, and excellent food. My friend and I both had one of today’s special - she had the the seafood platter and I had the special fish & chips. We received generous portions that were well prepared.

Food and service very good. We had a mix of seafood and meat. None were disappointed. While it was a slow Tuesday off-season the server was great. First timer's and she explained everything on the menu... what was popular... and which dishes got the best feedback. While it's a little expensive (for us) we will go back.

We were celebrating my sister's birthday and she wanted "everything lobster." Tuesday nights the lobsters are a special price. She ordered a glass of "Sea Glass" the only Pinot Grigio on the wine menu by the glass. The waitress returned and told us a glass was not available, we had to buy the bottle which was way over priced. I ordered a salad of greens with the lobster salad on top and the greens were a spring mix right from the bag. The Cobb salad was good but all the ingredients were chucked separately. My sister had whole steamed lobster and she was very pleased.

5 people - 3 sent food back because lobster and shrimps were raw. 2 had enjoyable fully cooked dinners. Took very long time to wait fir dinner then half is raw. Never go again to this restaurant.

Perfect restaurant for Covid Care...tables separated. Nice setting with booths, tables, and high tables. Great choice of entrees or smaller platters. Our waiter was wonderful! Great sense of humor and patient for 3 women taking forever to order. Very relaxing atmosphere and love the white decor. Be sure to ask for the ‘specials’ menu. The waffle with ice cream for dessert was delicious. Highly recommend.

We ordered the queso dip and it Tasted horrible. The fried green tomatoes had too much breading and no flavor. We added the jumbo lump crab but it was not lump crab. And the prosciutto and arugula flatbread left much to be desired. The restaurant is painted white so quite bright and they had the lights turned up way too much for the evening. We will not go back.
