The Hampton Social - South Barrington
Went for lunch, had the lobster roll! It was fantastic! Definitely going back!
I would be interested to try again post COVID-19 menu restrictions. The menu options were so few there was only one thing on the menu I wanted, and nothing that makes me feel I have to go back again soon.
Great food and atmosphere. Love this place. We will be back.
Great vibe good food but they ran out of the popular dishes by 7:30 pm
Lobster roll was a hit for my mother and first time Hampton dining friend. I love the Harvest Salad but would love to see the Crab and Shrimp Salad back.
Excellent service, food was delicious and the drinks, especially the Lemon drop martini, were REALLY good!
Brussel sprouts were amazing! And the calamari, the server was very sweet and I love the open air ambience
Everything was great except bacon was burned
Great food and service
It was pretty good, no complaints.
The menu should be expanded with variety of food.
Great venue and amazing food. Server were cognizant of the tough times. Only thing I would say is to bring up the 4% Covid Charge upfront and not at the end of the experience.
Went there for brunch with my sisters and mother. The lobster rolls were delicious! The key lime pie for dessert was also fantastic.
Really fun atmosphere! Servers were super nice and responsive. Nice cocktail menu. My chicken entree was disappointing- overdone and not flavorful. I would definitely go back and order something different.
We went early in the day desiring to sit outside and not have too much exposure to others due to the virus, of course. They have the tables spaced properly and all staff that we saw wore masks and stayed back when possible. We went for the lobster rolls and chose the Manhattan style. We are from the East Coast and familiar with both styles, but I am very fussy about the Maine style. The waitress was familiar with how they were prepared and cheerfully helpful. No celery in the Maine style mayo ones tipped us to the Manhattan style, which is warm and dressed with butter. Served in the proper buttered toasted hot dog buns. We were so pleased with our lunch experience. I rated it as "quiet" because it was, but it was 11:15 a.m.
I continue to return to HS with friends as it is a great place to socialize and relax. In the midst of C19, HS has a wonderful, open air place to eat within their entire restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere are incredible. We love the live music. The musician is wonderful. I've brought several people who this was their first time to HS. They've been as impressed and I've been.
janeR, thank you so much for this great review! We appreciate both the recommendation and your patronage. Thank you so much for bringing your companions to the restaurant to share the experience. We're glad you enjoy the restaurant and we look forward to seeing you again.
The atmosphere and service are great! The menu is small and the same for lunch and dinner. I think it’s really pricey. I had the brussel sprout Caesar salad and added Salmon The salad was drenched in dressing and cheese and only had a couple of brussel sprouts. Also, the salmon was under cooked. I expect better for a salad that costs $27.
deblee, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry to hear that your meal left something to be desired. We are in the process of transitioning to a new menu and, due to the pandemic, our supply chain has been disrupted. We appreciate the feedback on the Brussels Sprouts Caesar salad. We'll be sure to share it with our Corporate Chef to address for the future.
Lobster roll lunch portion for $26 was way too expensive for the amount you get! All bread!
janeeru, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry your lobster roll left something to be desired. We appreciate the feedback on the value of your meal. We always want our guests to feel as though their experience is worth their money.
Very friendly waitress and nice atmosphere.
Great place to go for dinner or drinks, great atmosphere, open walls make dining in feel like ding out.
Hampton Social in South Barrington was excellent. It was a great (and safe) place to meet up with friends. Food is excellent and service was great.
Sarah, thank you so much for this great review! We're happy that you had an excellent visit and that we made you feel safe and tended to. We appreciate the recommendation and we hope to see you in the future.
This place is awesome! It might not be the cheapest..but it is well worth it! The ambiance is as good as it could possible get...plus the guacamole is the best I have ever had! They have an excellent rose half off during Happy Hour...and on Monday nights a young couple play acoustically and sing- excellent!!! All that AND a fabulous lobster roll??!! I was an instant fan!
Suzanne, this is an awesome review! Thank you so much for stopping in. We're glad you had the complete Hampton Social experience (lobster roll, rose, acoustic musicians) and that you had a wonderful time. We appreciate the recommendation and we hope to see you again.
Was disappointed that many foods from other HS were not available. MUCH smaller menu. Service a little tough with some errors on allergies but still super cute and food was good
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We know that the menu is more diminished from what we normally offer, but the supply chain has been disrupted due to the pandemic and we will have to navigate that until a viable solution has been achieved. We hope you'll stop in to dine with us again.
Everything was great! Live music during brunch and everything was very clean.
Had brunch here with friends and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. They had live music which I thought was a nice touch. Ordered the lobster roll and drinks and both were really good. Server could've been a bit more attentive but no major complaints! Have been to this location twice and would come back again.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a nice review. We appreciate you stopping in to dine with us and we're glad that you and your friends enjoyed your visit. We hope you'll stop in again.
Nice place for fun date or brunch with friends.
Frose was so delicious
The food was great, and the service was amazing! They were extra careful and very clean with everything they touched!
The ambience was great. Our party said "it feels like we are on vacation!".
The doors being open was a little warm (in the middle of Chicago summer) but there was a breeze every now & then.
Aside from us being hot—this was the ONLY drawback from our experience. The food was great, drinks were great, service was great & the staff did such a sweet thing & surprised us with a free bottle of champagne for our table (to celebrate our bride to be) !!
Live music was amazing!! It’s such a gorgeous spot & I 100% would come back. I absolutely recommend this spot for any meal!
Thanks so much for this awesome review! We're happy to do what we can to make our guests feel appreciated and cherished. We're glad you enjoyed your meal and that you got to experience the live music. Due to the pandemic, the doors and windows must remain open in order for us to seat guests inside.
Food was good, but it’s just too loud! Hard to have a conversation over the music.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. While we're happy that you enjoyed your meal, we're sorry that the acoustics left something to be desired. We will take your feedback into consideration and try to make improvements for the future.
We thought it was very pricey. Asked for taste of rose and got two full glasses instead. Cheap trick. Drinks very expensive and food too
AlinaL, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate the feedback on the value, as we always want our guests to feel as though their meal was worth the money. We will take it into consideration for the future and hope that you'll stop in again to dine with us.
As always, HS is an amazing place for meeting friends, eating and just enjoying the atmosphere. Even on a reduced menu, the food, wine, etc are exceptional. It is a favorite place for my friends and I to meet and eat.
janeR, thanks for the awesome review! We're glad that The Hampton Social has become one of your go-to restaurants for catching up with friends and enjoying a good meal. We appreciate the recommendation and we look forward to seeing you again.
very nice. the doors were open for fresh air. it was nice to get out and feel safe.
Wonderful experience Alicia provided great customer service, attentive and professional. Delicious good.
I love this place! I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for overall is that when I book my reservations on OpenTable at the Hampton Social they don't give me my credits or points from the Hampton Social; which is very disappointing.
secondgradeteacher, thank you for the great review. We appreciate the recommendation. Just so you know, if you didn't receive your points from your reservation, you can always contact Opentable directly to have that rectified.
Everything was absolutely 💯
Definitely recommend the Shelter island Chicken Sandwich, truffle fries and the bees are back cocktail especially if you love bourbon!
Kaitlin, thanks so much for the great review! The Shelter Island Chicken Sandwich is definitely a fan-favorite and we're glad it satisfied. We appreciate the recommendation and we hope to see you in the future.
Service and food was outstanding!
I wish there were more seafood and vegetarian options. There was no shrimp on the menu. We had a pasta and grilled salmon. Food was great.
Our server was GREAT! drinks and food was delicious definitely going back.
NancyR, thanks for the great review! We're so glad you had wonderful service and that you would visit us again. We appreciate the recommendation and look forward to seeing you in the future.
Loved a lot about this restaurant - the way it opened up to the outside, the decor, the service, the 'vibe'!!! I had the lobster roll but was disappointed that I could hardly find the lobster meat on the roll - there was so little! My husband had the chicken and it was delish! We splurged and did dessert - the cheesecake - YUM! Even though I was disappointed in the lobster roll, we would go back.
Fabshopper, thanks so much for the nice review. We appreciate you coming to check us out as well as the recommendation. We will take the good and less good feedback from your meal and look forward to seeing you in the future.
My group went in for a “celebration of finding a wedding dress”. 😊. The only opportunity I found was to social distance the tables—my chair was less than 8” from the chair at the next table. The restaurant seemed wide open, so being seated in the middle of two other tables didn’t make me (or my guests) feel safe amongst this Covid epidemic.
WendyB, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate the feedback on how you feel you were seated in relation to the appropriate physical distancing required to keep our guests and staff safe.
