Saigon sushi was closed so we walked a block to Southern Social. Kismet. It was really good, especially the appetizers. We had the deviled eggs and "pigs and figs." Yum! Next time we'll do all appetizers. My wife's fish was quite good, firm and tasty. Crispy duck was well prepared. The cocktails were excellent. I had the special house Manhattan. Perfect. We skipped dessert--maybe next time when we do our own tapas meal. Highly recommended. (Street parking is plentiful).

A large part of the appeal is the setting. It’s artfully decorated in a pleasing, inventive way without getting silly. The menu is quirky but broad enough to have appeal for lots of different appetites. Prices are not inexpensive but not excessive either. Good selection of wine, beer and cocktails.
The smoked wing appetizer was excellent. The shrimp and grits were perfectly cooked and presented in a creative way. The meat loaf was just fair, but that’s the way with meatloaf - personal taste.
It’s nice to see a local restaurant with some creative ideas flourish. Would recommend.

As foodie newcomers to Vero Beach, we have covered most of TA's top 20 list of restaurants in our first couple months here! Now I can say, Southern Social will be our go to place! Comfortable setting, great service, & very diverse and unique menu of delicious choices! As my visiting daughter said, each of us had different presentations & great meals,,,, appetizers , drinks , and even dessert were amazing and unique too! I am looking forward to going back & trying more delectable ideas soon!

I had a fabulous steak with a very interesting lime flavored sauce. I’ve never had anything like it it was unusual and super delicious.

The owner and staff - go out of their way to make you feel at home - the ambience was perfect with the decor and lighting making the restaurant cozy and romantic at the same time - they are out to please the customer- the food is so diverse that you can go from plain seafood to fried southern steak - we had the berry salad as well as the catch of the day - one of our dishes wasn’t to my wife’s liking so they replaced it and comped the dish - the owner came around And made it a point to welcome us - the food is out of this world and for sure we will be back.
