Had a great time here. The atmosphere was fun and exciting. Every seat had multiple views of plenty of TV screens. We asked to have one switched to a different hockey game and they very instantly accommodating. The food was very tasty and priced reasonably....The beer was cold and fresh. The staff was very friendly and they were very attentive. Overall, this is an excellent place to go to. We will definitely be stopping here next time we’d are nearby.More

Came here to have a drink and a bite to eat, asked if we would get served at outside seating. They said yes, sat out there for about 15 mins didn’t even get water. Then we saw the hostess standing by the door chatting on...her phone and eating a chocolate bar whist customers were waiting and she just ignored them. We got up and walked out and went to Tommy Bahamas Instead.More

Visiting Ft. Lauderdale for the World Poker Tour at the Hardrock Casino in Hollywood. Took Sunday off to go for Brunch in Ft. Lauderdale and try the American Social. Very pleasant atmosphere and ambiance. Highly recommend the Shrimp and Argula Salad #1 Daughter got the...Impossible Burger and gave it a OK Rating...had better and have had worse per her vegetarian criteria ms gamboolgal got the Breakfast Sandwich - it is huge and pretty good Do not recommend the Bloody Mary's - about the worst excuse for a Bloody Mary I have ever had....you have been warned. Not cheap for what it is - but not too bad considering the location. Overall - a average cafeMore

Fun place to eat, drink, and just have a good time. Place always has a big crowd. Staff have always been friendly and nice when we have been there. Brunch is very good as well. Place can definitely get a little tight, you wish it...could be a little bigger or somehow expand. Only negative thing I have is the bathrooms. Not sure what guys do, but the last two times we’ve been there the men’s bathroom was disgusting. During these times with cleanliness being at the forefront of everyone’s mind it’s something that should be addressed periodically throughout the night. I know it’s not the staffs fault that grown men can’t pee into the toilet. Other than the bathroom it’s a great place that we will continue to go to.More

American Social was a great place to stop in for happy hour drinks along Las Olas. Restaurant/bar was very nice and clean. Staff were all very friendly and attentive. Most drinks are half off during happy hour, but no food specials unfortunately. They do offer...free WiFi.More

First and foremost I gave it that title because the name of the restaurant is called American Social when we arrived there were only seven people inside not saying that the place doesn't get busy because that was my first time visiting to be honest...that was my second time the first time what the 45-minute wait on a Sunday during brunch so I decided not to attend I went to Rosie's instead but here at American Social there was only one waitress in the entire restaurant granted she did her job very well she was very attentive to us and she took care of us I just couldn't understand why one person was serving a restaurant of 10 people anywho the food was good I can honestly say I've had better but when you're hungry and you just want something quick to eat and a nice drink I can honestly say this is not a bad place to go have a quick bite have a drink and head off home and watch some Netflix.More

The bar had no shortage of drinks on tap. Despite seeming overwhelmed, Kristina managed to stay on top of our drinks and food. I suggest the steak frites, it went beyond my expectations. The buffalo chicken fries were also fantastic. I’m sure this place is...even better when it’s not restricted by the virusMore

I rarely give a 5 star review but I have been to this place twice in the last two weeks for happy hour and both times the food was good with nice portion sizes on the apps for sharing. The drinks have been good but...what made me come back was the service. The service there was not only good it beat expectations both times. All of the wait staff wait on you in some form or another. If you have an empty dish and one is passing they pick it up. May not be your waiter which is just good service. If one see's you low on a drink they ask if you want another. Again may not be "your" waiter. I used the restroom both times I was there and both times it was clean. The value during Happy Hour is, I thought, excellent. My only complaint was that I did not see the manager at the end of both times to compliment the staff in person. I will next time I go assuming it is the same which I have little doubt it will be. Well done AMSO.More

We stopped here for a quick lunch and they had an express lunch with various items for $10.50. The burger was delicious. The best was the hummus appetizer which had something else with it( I think goat cheese). I will definitely eat there again when...in the area.More

We were there on a weekday in January and bar prices were average. I think they had a happy hour later in the afternoon after we were there like many others. If you are inside, you might look at sitting at the bar for better... More
