East Coast Social is an absolute classic for me and my friends. The food is always brilliant and the venue is quirky and fun. Good music and drinks too :) my favourite place to go in Southend.

The fillet steak had a very small amount of fat on it, which lost it a five star rating, the service was excellent, the food was very good other than that. I thought the deserts were a little bit limited and didn't find anything that I wanted to try. My wife who can be fussy, wants to go back very soon. The price seemed a bit expensive. Would I return? Based on my last visit... Yes!

I was having a Birthday meal with my partner. We was pleased to find great service. The waitress was very polite and greeted us with a smile. She was very patient with us as it took a while to decide what we wanted to eat. The choice was very difficult, but we got there in the end. The meal was lovely, even though we was full at the end and had no room for dessert. I would definitely recommend here to my friends.
Thank you for a lovely experience.

Booked for a Friday night, the place was surprisingly quiet when we arrived, in fact we were shown to our table early, on the upper floor with a view out onto the road, most pleasant on a warm summer's evening. Nice relaxed atmosphere, friendly and helpful Waitresses, food most palatable. We had the ribeyes, served on a piece of hot rock, a very good way of ensuring the steaks being cooked to how one requires it. Live music kicked in halfway through our meal, on the groundfloor so most welcome but not intrusive . Described to us as more of a "younger persons" establishment, we felt very comfortable and welcomed, the menu is not extensive ( not necessarily a bad thing at all) but has some very nice sounding dishes and we will certainly be returning. Based on our experience, very much recommended.

My friends and I went to East Coast for the bottomless brunch on a Sunday, we found the offer to be really good value - the food was tasty and there was a lot of choice. We were able to switch between the drinks on offer and never had an empty glass!
Will be going again and would recommend to others

It was our first visit to East Coast Social (near the Odeon in Southend). Décor is amazing: chandeliers, 'bowler hat' light shades and quirky pictures! Atmosphere great too, although we ate early and we were only one of 2 tables occupied. Food excellent. Highly recommend!

Everytime I go to East Coast social I am never disappointed. Their hot rock steaks, gorgeous cocktails and friendliest and attentive of staff makes you feel every penny spent in there is well worth it. I could quite easily eat here everyday. Great food, drinks and staff you have certainly made it all work well.

We started our night with some drinks downstairs which was lovel and feel rushed to get to our table! When we went upstairs we were greated politely and shown to our table.
It was my friends first time eating here and she was impressed with the choice, we ordered Lamb burger sweet potato fries & fillet steak to be cooked on lava rock. It was amazing both had a couple of drinks and the price was exceptional. We will definitely be back again.

Took my girlfriend here on Valentines day, during a weekend get away to Southend. The set menu was both fantastic and very reasonably priced. The waiters were fast and efficient, without losing any of the warm and polite atmosphere you want in a restaurant. And there was even a live singer for entertainment, and topped off with a rose for the ladies all included in the price.
Could not have been happier, we plan to definitely go again next time we are in Southend.

Been here a few times now and I love it. Good choice of food, good price love the cocktails.
The atmosphere is really good and on a Friday night they have live music.
It's nice to have a place in southend where you can go for a meal and then stay for drinks after as they have two floors.
Would defiantly go back again

First time there since it opened. The waitress we had was just outstanding and very accommodating and friendly. A live band was on that night and they were courteous to call and advise this encase we wanted a quiet sitting. Good and cocktails were amazing and great value. Could not have asked for a better night. New regular eatery and watering hole for sure.
