Out side seating was our choice as the noise level inside interfered with any normal conversation.

It was the first time we had gone, where nothing went right. Hard to get someone to assist, we made reservations through “Open Table” it was waiting list, they sat us in a table under an umbrella when it was raining, people were moving to other table freely and the management allowed it. Terrible service.

Great service!! The happy hour specials were perfect for an early dinner and drinks get-together. The tables overlooking the water are perfect. You can hear the Metro running by, but it’s sporadic (and it’s a city, so we didn’t mind it)- the view definitely makes up for it. The food was tasty and the server was great! He knew a lot about the beers on tap and could easily recommend things. Definitely would go back!

We thought the restaurant was very loud and noisy. We are over 50 years old. This restaurant is geared towards a much younger crowd. It is a Sports Bar which I didn’t realize when a made the reservation. I ordered a Bloody Mary and it was very watery.

We had a particularly bad experience after some bait and switch advertising by the restaurant. We had learned of an event publicized by the official American Social twitter account saying that ALL guests would receive a free tequila shot for every goal scored by the USA women's soccer team. We thought that would be pretty cool as some international friends were visiting that weekend and we wanted to show them a good time in Miami on a Sunday. After sitting down at our table and after the women's team had scored a goal, we inquired about a free tequila shot with our waitress. She said that the free tequila shots were specifically for the American Outlaw group who were celebrating inside the restaurant. We showed the waitress on twitter that the advertisement said "ALL" guests (not specific to the American Outlaw group, and she disappeared for a moment. The waitstaff then returned with some member of the American Outlaw group who admittedly said he was a "jerk" and that we could get a free tequila shot if we agreed to sign up for membership for $25/year. Of course we declined as 95% of the people at our table were internationals and had no interest in joining any U.S. fan club. The American Outlaw member then insulted all of us and walked off. We complained to the waitress and she apologized and said we could get a free shot if we just gave our email addresses to the bartender (?). We complied and she returned with our "shots of tequila" which were so watered down with grenadine it wouldn't even had been worth a second shot had the women's team scored again. The whole situation was poorly handled, and I wouldn't trust any events described by this restaurant on their social media outlets because they clearly use bait and switch techniques. Very disappointed. That's the last time we go to this restaurant.

This was my second visit. The first was nice but the this one was not. The food was mediocre and the service was poor. The waitress messed up orders and incorrectly billed me. After the fact she charged me a different price for the wine and stated sorry the bar was out and gave you a higher prices selection. She should have notified me and let me decide. They bought a $12 brownie out to celebrate my daughters graduation. It was hard and couldn’t be eaten. Very bad experience.

I would recommend American social for its view and great food and drinks! Service sucked though, we had a reservation at 7:30 and showed up at 7:15 but still waited until 8 for seating and some of us got our order taken and some of us were ignored until half of us had our food already and some didn’t have drinks. We still love the place and hope that can be figured out

Went on Sunday afternoon for late Mother’s Day lunch . Drunk and loud 20 somethings pouring out of restaurant . We were seatef inside , next to a table of about 10 drunk girls at 4 pm in the afternoon.
One of the girls passed out on the table and security had to come and ask her friends to take her home . The girls refused to leave .
Extremely loud . All in all , I made a very poor choice for nice late afternoon lunch.

It is a fantastic location right on the river. I would recommend it as a happy hour spot, but I would not recommend it if you are looking for a nice, quiet dinner and not with a large group. We went with 15 people and had reservations and they tried to seat us on couches right in front of the DJ. It was loud and chaotic, but would probably be nice with a couple of people earlier in the day before the music starts. Food was OK, we went back for Mother;s day. Skip the egg station and order off the menu, the omelettes were not that good. Can't beat the ambience though!

I've been to American Social several times before and I like the restaurant overall. This time I invited a group of friends to brunch. I didn't pay attention at the time of making the reservation and we were put inside. It's unbearably noisy inside and makes having a conversation next to impossible. Therefore, I would recommend only reserving a table outside. It's much nicer!

Nice place on the water. We were suprised by the happy hour that went until 8pm... Some good stuff on there and beer and wine half off. Food was decent. Apps good.. Burgers were good (6oz for$6) oysters nice. Truffled pizza was basically cheese pizza with truffled salt and too salty.
Waiter forgot to put in the oyster order so they came with the meals. Drinks were slow to come especially the second round we wanted with the meals. Asked a couple times to different people for some condiments for the buggers but they never came.
Inside was almost empty but packed outside, don't think they were so busy to be messing stuff up.
Over all decent might go back again.

Way too loud. I had a hard time hearing my friend who was sitting literally right next to me in one of the high-top tables. The music was loud and there were lots of boisterous 20-somethings in various stages of inebriation. Plus, the boats that would pass by were typically blasting their own music. The day before my reservation, I was called by the hostess to confirm and was offered a table closer to the water. When I got there, I was seated at an outside high-top furthest from the water. When I told them I had expected another table, they told me that they had to move me because a bigger party had taken over the table that was supposed to be mine. They apologized profusely and I told them I understood, but I couldn't help but be a bit miffed. The food was ok, nothing to rave about. I'm not going back anytime soon.
