Well, I've been to ABC many many many times. I will go many more times. I like going because the group of people that usually is there is super cool. The wait staff is awesome, but I have to admit that some of them are my friends. So, I'm a little biased. That may mean I get better service ...or crappier service than most, I'm not sure. lol
Honestly, I'm not a fan of their beer. That's just my opinion. Most people like it though. If you are unsure of what beer to get you can always get a sampler, which is really nice. I think I like the Blonde? (not sure if that's the name) the best.
The food is ok in my opinion. I'll eat it. It's not terrible. It's not super great. ABC is not my first choice for food. Unless you go during off peak times it's generally pretty busy. It's nice if you are going to drink with friends or play shuffle board. You can meet some cool people there as well. I tend to go to ABC for the overall environment and it's just a laid back place to hang out with friends.
I would say the serving might be slow during the evening because it's usually busy. They are or have been always friendly. You may get someone new and the service may not be incredibly speedy, but for the most part it's people who have been there for a long time. You will usually see the same faces if you go often. I personally like that because you actually get to know them.
The crowd ranges from Twenty somethings to 50 somethings+. It's a nice mix of people usually. Definitely one of the most popular places in A2 to go to. If you haven't checked it out I would suggest doing so. People tend to go once and keep going back. Chances are you will see some of the people that have posted on here. lol
