We were seated quickly and food and drinks got to our table relatively quickly. Cocktails were actually quite delicious.
For food, my date ordered the shrimp and grits. That was really good. About what I would expect from shrimp and grits.
I ordered the "mixed grill". The shrimp were great. The scallops were a bit underdone. The steak I ordered medium rare and it came out medium well. It also had no seasoning whatsoever. No salt, pepper, or even butter. It tasted like they just took un-aged meat from a local grocery store, stuck it straight on the grill, and served it. Chewed like it too. I guess I'm being a bit harsh. But it was the first time ever that I did not finish a steak.
I would totally recommend this place to friends for cocktails and maybe even brunch (I haven't been. So I can't rate that experience, but I have heard decent things.).

The worst experience at a new restaurant ever. Service was slow, food was poor described and not cooked properly and felt as if we were not as important as the table next to us that ordered $200 worth of alcohol

We went for brunch. The apple/Gouda toast was truly terrible. Too spicy to eat- menu didn’t mention spice and said there would be nuts but it had granola on it instead. No one asked how the meal was. Should have a warning that the honey is spicy- most would not expect that.

Rosalee was the highlight of our dining experience. She was a personable server who made our experience more enjoyable. The food was good, lots of choices on the menu. Crab queso was a unique, shareable appetizer.

This is one of our new favorite places to eat when in Bethany on vacation. Chicken and waffles and fried green tomatoes are my favs.

Generally the food is good. This trip, my husband ordered a hamburger that had bacon - the bacon was not raw, but certainly not cooked. He wasn't looking for crispy (although that would have been fine) but almost translucent was not his idea of a good topping to a burger. There's usually someone at the front desk to great you and no one was there most of the time we were at the restaurant. The front desk people are welcoming and very knowledgeable, so we are guessing there was a problem elsewhere in the restaurant. I had a lobster roll and it had way too much mayo in it but it did NOT have any onion, so it was good. The wait staff is usually very nice and helpful. This time was no different. We had two servers and both were lovely.

The hostess was also our server. It took some time for everything to come together. The server was very pleasant and knew the menu. Two of us ordered a soup course before our entree's and another ordered fried oysters I believe. The fried oysters came but the soups did not. Next thing you know our entrees came. We told the runner about it and then our soups came out. As I said the server was good but I believe she had too much going on. I know most places are short staffed and this was no exception.

We were visiting the area and decided to try Atlantic Social. It has beautiful decor and restaurant looks very inviting. We were a party of 8 and were seated together at the booth, which was very nice. Food was very fresh and delicious, we had fried calamari, shrimp tacos and steak salad. Our waiter was very attentive and accommodating to our little tweaks to the order and everything was brought at the same time and correctly. So definitely would recommend, we left Atlantic Social full and happy!

After we were seated we waited 25 minutes for our drinks and a copy of the specials menu. Not impressed. Many other good options in the area. Wouldn't go back.

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.

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.
