Food is always very good and service is consistent. Friendly and attentive servers. Our only complaint is it is alway very loud. The music makes it difficult to converse.

One of the things that I love about AS is the omelet station. This is what I have every time I go there. This visit, it was not setup and a private event was being held in the room which usually has the omelet station. There are no other omelet options on the menu so I was not happy. Had I known, I would have changed my reservation to another day.

As is the case with so many restaurants, there is just too much noise for dinner. I was aching to leave by the end to escape the loud music.
The atmosphere is otherwise nice, but unless you are in your early 20s, there is too much loud noise.
The menu could use a bit more seafood, especially with the location on the water. The tacos I had were great though.
The service was lacking. Drink orders were slow to arrive, and in two cases, additional drinks were delivered that were not ordered (not a bad deal since we weren't charged). They clearly needed more servers outside.

Chris was our server outside, he went above and beyond and provided us with wonderful service. The hostess was wonderful as well!
The food was delicious and we will 100% be back.

Particularly cold night! But AMSO did a great job of making outdoor seating comfortable. Service was excellent. Very busy place on Saturday night!

The food was very good “bar food”. Not really the reason to go to AMSO. It’s more about atmosphere, crowd, music.

I hosted 6 others that were in Tampa for our Florida Federation of Republican Women executive
committee meeting. They and I enjoyed ourselves at AmSo. We had no complaints. Service was very good even though you were busy. The server was calm, courteous, and correctly brought our orders
and the check. Loved that we were seated next to the water. Always nice when I'm entertaining
out-of-towners. Thank you. Deborah Tamargo, President Florida Federation of Republican Women.

Great food, service was mediocre, at best! (Had to ask for our drink order to be taken, dishes taken away and pretty much everything else) Very loud, but fun atmosphere...especially for a Monday night!

We hadn’t seen our friend in almost a year and she came down to see all of us and our waiter rushed us out at 10pm. We go there at 8pm. They have me food with pine nuts (I’m allergic) and I told them but they INSISTED it wasn’t pine nuts. I’m pretty sure I know what a pine nut is. I didn’t complain and everything was fine but when they started to rush us out at the beginning of happy hour... I was done.

Everything was good, except it was extremely loud and had a hard time holding a conversation at our table.

10 of us Boomers celebrating my husbands birthday. From the web site and here on Open Table we didn’t pick up on this being a place with such loud music and almost entirely 20 and 30 somethings. The food and service though were very good.

Fabulous time with my wife, we went to celebrate her birthday. We don’t drink alcohol, and we’re pleasantly surprised by the no alcohol offerings. Service was excellent and the food was superb! We have come here before and will definitely be back!

I was very disappointed overall. When we arrived I thought I had reserved outside dining, this was my error however the staff argued with me instead of just saying they didn’t have it that way. I was with my kids and my disabled parents, I had been told this was a great family place but it’s definitely not, I would say that if we were going for a date night it would be ok. I had to chase down my waitress for water and also for the check... The food was fine, nothing to complain about but not mouth watering either, I won’t be going back.

The hostess didn’t seem to know what was going on. There were a bunch of open tables but we waited about 25 minutes despite having a reservation. The food was underwhelming and didn’t have a lot of flavor. My first experience there was great, so I tried it again... but I don’t know if I’ll go back a third time. P

There were plenty of open tables in booths, out in the open with a view, etc, but instead they seated us against a brick wall with only a view of the hostess stand, basically in the bar. The hostess never brought water, napkins, or silverware; we had to ask for all of it. The pacing of the meal was weird; I ordered a bowl of soup & it came out all with the rest of the meal. All in all a really blah experience for what was supposed to be a nice Valentine’s Day meal with friends.

The food was good, but once seated it took 15 minutes before someone came to see us and another 25 minutes before we even got our drinks. There were a lot of open seats so service shouldn’t have been that slow. If the service was faster and better I would definitely have given them a better rating.

Unfortunately on the evening we were there the computer system had crashed creating all sorts of problems. Wait times were ridiculous and although our waitress did what she could it was pretty bad, timing wise. Our good was Excellent and while waiting for our waitress to bring the check(long, long wait), manager arrived to comp our meal.
We would definitely give it a second chance.

I visited American Social with a group of girlfriends for Brunch on Saturday morning. The brunch buffet and omelet bar was incredible. Everything was fresh and delicious. Add to that free bottomless mimosas when you purchased an entree and I was in heaven! Our server was Emma and she was incredible, we never wanted for anything and our glasses were never empty. I would go back for brunch again and again.

Good large sports bar. Problem is that they have no idea how to manage crowds when they’ve chosen to be in the middle of an area that will get busy. The hostess was overwhelmed trying to figure out how to handle the convention and hockey crowd. I had a reservation but that didn’t matter one bit. The bar was empty but the hostess decided it would be easiest to get rid of people if she told them it was a 90 minute wait. Food was good but multiple times a server came to us with food that was ours. Just really disorganized.

Awful experience. Loud and full of drunk college kids. Brought my family with 2 young kids. Waiter forgot my son’s waffle and never brought the kids drinks. Very disappointing as we boated there and made reservations.

We had brunch and it was wonderful. We sat outside on the patio overlooking the water. The French Toast was fabulous.
