The service was very slow for ordering food and getting our food. The TV’s were way too loud. We had to shout to hear each other!

The food wasn't bad, but that said, it wasn't great. I was kind of disappointed with the food and service. Our server was fine, but very busy so it was hard to get her attention. When we got there with a reservation for inside we had to wait 10 minutes and then they tried to seat us outside and were obviously flustered when we expressed our desire to sit inside as we had requested in the reservation.

Eggs were over cooked and dirty from the grill. The steak was awesome as was everything else. The waitress was mediocre. good food, will try again.

We had a nice dinner. We were happy we could make a reservation to sit outside ahead of time. With the pandemic, we’re only eating at restaurants with outdoor seating options. For the most part people were following safety protocols... by the end of our dinner though it was getting crowded. Parts of the bar that were roped off to allow for social distancing had people pulling up bar stools and seating themselves in the roped off areas. Putting them a few feet from us. Bartender didn’t say anything. By that time we were ready to go. Food was delicious. We had a great view. Staff was friendly. It was loud though on a Friday night they had a guy singing music. It was ok. We tried the 2 old fashions on the menu; not good in our opinion. We’d return though and just stick to food & beer.

We were seated quickly, server came in a timely manner and we ordered drinks. When she returned we ordered our meal. We have a toddler so in the middle of our meal we asked for the check just in case we needed to make a quick get away.
I have been to many places where once you pay they completely forget to check on you. Our server came back to check on us after we paid and before we left.
We loved the place and discussed that it would be even better without our child lol.

Great restaurant but the hosts weren’t prepared for us despite the reservation, they told us we couldn’t be sat yet because they were waiting on a server that would arrive at 6 when the reservation was for 5:15 and then had to seat 3 of us at an 8 top because they were so unprepared.

It was good but Nashville Hot Chicken was a little dry. It needs some type of sauce to help. Caesar salad aw very good.

We went for brunch and the food was great. Mimosas are $3 for brunch. We did choose to sit outside because it's on the water and a nice view. It started thundering and raining at one point and our server said she'd check on options for us to move but didn't come back until later when the rain stopped. They were pretty busy for Sunday brunch. Luckily it didn't get much harder than a drizzle and we had somewhat cover with umbrellas.

Ordered the Signature St Louis ribs and they were awful. Extremely tough and dry. Sent them back and ordered a burger which was fine. Manager was great and made sure everything was right. Server made a couple of mistakes but was very pleasant and tried real hard. Great location but more of a younger crowd or good place for pre or post game or with a crowd. Not a good place for a date night

We liked our server she was very nice and was helpful through our dinner. We noticed that they no longer have appetizers priced for happy hour. There were actually more than 50 % capacity. A big table close by very large group kept getting up & down without masks & stood by our table to take pictures.

We were there on a Wednesday night to celebrate my daughters birthday. The outside patio was very busy but inside where we were seated was not. Hard to get refills on drinks other than water that was already on the table. Food was ok, not great. Had to remind the waitress about dessert orders as dinner plates were being cleared. She forgot to put them in. I can tell their main focus is the outside patio/bar area. We won’t be back.

Waitress was good. Liked that they had throw away menus and hand sanitizer at table. Staff had on masks. The food was blah. My friends salmon salad- she said the cooked veggies were undercooked. My BLT chicken sandwich was bland and not cooked all the way through. My Moscow mule was excellent. Underwhelmed dining experience. Great view on the water.

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.

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.
