Our server Dakota was incredible and extremely attentive. My only complaint is that one of the hostess’s (wearing a pink crop top, white beach pants & had a Blonde pony tail on Monday 5/3) was very abrupt and rude when giving my party directions on where to go. We were a party of 3 and when our 3rd guest arrived & told the host that she was meeting people inside, the host said “Okay so just go” in a very abrupt manner. We all have bad days and we all make mistakes, it’s human nature, but that doesn’t give you a right to be rude to customers trying to be courteous of the flow of the restaurant.

Outside seating is some of the best in downtown Tampa; water views and comfortable tables. Food is always excellent, and wait staff are spot-on. I love this place!

Food was really good, the peel and eat shrimp were tremendous. Service was slow yet they were training a new server, he was good yet who he shadowed wasn’t around. Bar was packed. So expected a slower evening, all was good

Meal was really good however it was very loud and difficult to have a conversation. Couldn't decide if it was a sports bar or nice dinning.
Hard to recognize who worked there as they were whatever they wanted and no name tags.
Bartender was taking puffs off an e-cigarette behind the bar.

Sunday 12:45pm. It took 15 minutes for our reserved table so we weren't seated until 1pm. It took an hour to receive our food and then it wasn't hot. Not all people were served at our table at the same time. One male waiter kept coming by without a mask asking if we had already ordered. Just seemed chaotic and poorly managed. Overall, food was good, although Key West shrimp cake was very small for an entree. Perhaps serve with a side or put bread on the table so diners don't leave hungry.

We were seated quickly and had a great table by the water. A pair of servers were sharing coverage of our area and they did a fantastic job of keeping our glasses full. The food and overall value was good. You will not confuse this as gourmet cuisine but it is good, the environment is fantastic and we will return. The spinach and artichoke dip was fantastic!

I really enjoyed being outside overlooking the water. Beautiful atmosphere. We loved the food as well. I love that it's a pet friendly establishment. Next time I'll arrange to bring one of my dogs.

I don’t know what the problem is with me always getting sat in a sketchy area here!! The notes are not considered and the food is garbage. Drinks are incredible and the view is better. 6/10

Definitely 20s and 30s crowd. Very lively and fun if you are into that scene. Had a cool band playing. Plenty of space to spread out with multiple bars and hangout areas. Definitely make a reservation or else you will be waiting a while.

I love this restaurant. Cannot say enough great things. The atmosphere is amazing, and the food is absolutely incredible. I will say that it is pretty loud if they have a live band. Even with normal music, it is very loud. Still a great place to go and hangout with wonderful food and a great view.

The service was a bit rough at first. We ended up with one amazing young lady as our server who killed it. The food was amazing. Best pizza and wing combo place I’ve been to since moving fro. New York. Drinks were on point as well.

Service and food were excellent. Our table was in the bar and patrons were very rude. Other patrons kept hanging around our table within 6 feet from our table because there was no room at the bar. At one point not even giving us elbow room from the table.

Went to restaurant for pre-game Lighting hockey game for drinks and early dinner. Lucky I had a reservation since the bar was packed with Gasparillo partiers who were celebrating. Lots of fun!

Good food and good service. Limited brunch menu options since covid, which is a bummer! Love the $3 mimosas. Band/music good, but a little too loud, had to stain my voice just so family could hear me.

The only issue I had was with the hostess, I arrived with my date and she told us as needed to have a reservation and could not seat us. So then we went inside for a drink, while inside we saw there was plenty of tables so we went online and there was plenty of open reservations which she did not inform us of. Then when we went up to her to let her know we had made a reservation she was extremely rude to us. If we wouldn’t have thought about checking for an open reservation then American social would have lost out on the money we spent. Not someone I would want handling customer service.

We waited almost 1/2 hrs before our food was served

Waitress was extremely rude and we asked for manager he never came
The waitress slammed our bull down on the table at the end
The view is awesome and food was delicious

We ordered buffalo chicken fries, half a pound of old bay shrimp, and a chicken sandwich. It took over an hour to get our food. The food was average at best.

Surprised that server was a bit rude. Didn’t come back with requests that had been made. Had to hunt her down for bill, then got bill with no pen. Big fan of place, just disappointed with this trip. Maybe she simply had a bad day...
