This reminds me of a large, college oriented, sports bar. We had a late lunch on a Saturday so it was not too crowded and was actually quiet. This place is HUGE! Food was good but not remarkable. Waitress was attentive and helpful. I ordered a traditional Polish dish of Pierogi and Kielbasa. The Pierogi was good but Kielbasa tasted... More

Good food but a bit over priced. Menu not too unique. Salad was so so but jambalaya special is to die for! Yum!

I live in Burlington, VT, one of the craft beer capitals of the USA. Since I was in Amherst for two nights, I thought I would check out the local craft beer scene and have dinner. The hotel recommended ABC (Amherst Brewing Company). ABC reminded me of a large, college focused beer hall - the size, the lack of ambiance,... More

I'm sure the brewery gets way more of the college crowd, but this place is soulless compared to the old downtown ABC. I'll just rely on good memories. Goodbye, ABC.

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
