They could use some healthier selections for the food. The closest they have is the farmhouse chicken. Beer is decent and I like that they have pairing suggestions on the menu. Service is usually hit or miss. The big thumbs down is on the entry way staff. They are usually surly and mostly make you feel like you are putting... More

We wandered in for a quick and inexpensive dinner, not expecting much based on past experience, but we're pleasantly surprised. Although cavernous compared with its previous location, if you look around BEFORE you are seated, you can find a spot that suits you We decided on the large function room street side, where the Amherst Jazz Ensemble was to play...

I stopped here while on a business trip for dinner. It was ok, but not really anything special. I can't comment on all of the food as some of it looked delicious. I may have just made a wrong choice. I went for the Reuben and it was very blah. It resembled some deli meat from the grocery store with... More

We visited this place for the first time during a college visit with our two teenagers. After an exhausting day we were looking for some place that would appeal to all of our tastes, and this fit the bill. It's a very large place that really doesn't have any atmosphere inside and was pretty dark. Could really use some help... More

Came here with a group of 9 for a year-end get together -- it was the first and only time I ordered food from the kitchen. Service was horribly slow, so slow that the waitress didn't come back to check on us for almost 30 minutes after we'd gotten the check(s). Eventually I had to go up to the bar... More

Met the new manager today, picked her out because she had a ring of keys hanging from her neck. Very nice lady, her name is Joanna. My friends and I have been coming to ABC for about a year now. It isn't like the other Bro-bars in Amherst, great atmosphere without the obnoxious crowds of immature students, but still fills... More

We needed a location to serve 100 people. On relatively short notice we were able to secure a large private area in the restaurant for our group. The room was set-up with table and chairs with enough seating for everyone. The staff, Ashley, Alex and Andy were fantastic. We ordered buffet style food. They were very flexible about the timing...

The food is good, reasonable. Depending on the time of day, no loud music. The atmosphere is nothing out of the ordinary. Could use a warmer, more inviting decor.
