We booked Easter dinner and it was fabulous. The server exceeded our expectations. Eight of us (including kids) & no complaints.

Great food and nice atmosphere. Check in process could be better. The hosts were all over the place. Besides that it was a nice experience.

After sitting down had to wait for our waitress for 20 min after she showed up and we placed our order we were told the kitchen is behind and we would have to wait a while for our food so we ended up leaving.

Visiting from out of town and wanted a nice, casual dinner on the river. Couldn't have picked a better place. The staff was friendly, the food was great and the setting was beautiful. Will definitely come back if we are in town again!

Just too loud for outdoor dining. It wasnt even a late night scene for the loud music. Some self awareness would be nice.

Awesome spot right on the water. Unfortunately the staff were all wearing masks below their chins and patrons were not adhering to the mask policy when not at the table. Our server was great, however the Caesar salad with grilled steak had 4 croutons and very little steak, for $18. Not worth it. Would try again though.

Overall was a good experience but be aware it's a loud place, so if you are meeting to have a conversation, that's not your place. Nevertheless, we had fin, and the food was good.

We went to American social skeptical of the food and service, it turns out the food was spot on, and exceeded our expectations, and the service was perfect and consistent. We will definitely return without hesitation and look forward to our next visit.

The server was wonderful but the hostess staff was very unpleasant and rude. Limited our reservation to 2 hours without notifying us before hand and insistent ourdoor reservation was not available despite out multiple calls in the week leading up to it requesting outdoor seating.

Fun place to go. Nice that it is on the water. Overpriced average food. I would come back for just drinks and appetizers, not dinner.

The food and the view are great. The customer service is terrible. There was an issue with the computer system and all tickets were lost as we were ready to leave. Waited 35 minutes to check out. And not one visit by a supervisor/manager to apologize or explain or to offer something for our next visit (which btw, won't happen anytime soon).

It was good, music was nice tempo was great. Need better TV programming to watch - reruns of sports isn’t the move. At all. I had Mahi Tacos with Mac & Cheese. Mac was great and deliciously cheese. Mahi tacos could use more umph. Steak & fries from my group was enjoyed immensely. Thanks 😊 🙏🏼

We had Sunday brunch on the patio overlooking the bay. The menu is fabulous and the food and drinks were well worth it. Try the Avocado toast! They had heaters set up because it was a cool day and I was comfortable. We will definitely be back.

We made a reservation for 11. When we arrived there was only one line for the hostess stand, for both walk-ups and reservations. We were not seated until 20 minutes after our reservation time. Also, we anticipated brunch per the online menu. That has not been updated.

We chose this place being in Tampa for the day and it was outstanding. We finished at ZooTampa early and was well ahead of our reservation. We had to wait a slight bit but they were able to accommodate us. Food was great and server was outstanding.

The food was great and our sever really was running her section. We were seated outside despite a reservation for inside. It was really chilly. The heaters by us weren’t on. My wine glass was filled half as much as another patrons, but I didn’t say anything. We would go back for sure.

Disappointed. I heard many good reviews about this restaurant but it failed to deliver. Service was good but slow. Limited menu. My hubby liked his pizza (hard to go wrong!) and my salmon dish was okay but veggies undercooked.
Would not return.

Fun place for a family or noisier crowd. For just a dinner expect to be screaming over music. Fast service though! Good food.

The location is very nice on the water. The service was very slow and most staff looked confused. Ordered one drink and then when I asked for a second, I didn’t receive it for another 15 minutes. Our food was given to the table in front of us twice as was the table behind ours. I ordered an entree that comes with bacon standard in the sandwich which was missing and I had to ask for. My partners order came out wrong as well. The food was okay but expensive for what it was. Overall the good location of this place would be the only reason to return.

American Social used to have a great happy hour & I assumed it was the same when I suggested to go there. They changed their policy & no longer include food, only the regular menu. Disappointing - will not go back.

Got two tables of 6 set up outside right next to each other quickly and on a very busy night. Server was great - attentive, friendly and very accommodating.

Food was above average however Nashville Hot Chicken was not “hot” and was just a good fried chicken sandwich. They ran out of fries so substituted most of our sandwich orders with smashed potatoes which were actually very good.

The food was not very good and the service was mediocre at best. I don’t think we will be back. It took so long to get a drink I only had two.
