Went here on a weekday COVID19 evening. Small crowd, slow service. So we sat at the bar. Great service. We even got them to change the three TV sets to MLB, NHL and NBA. We ate salads. The buffalo chicken was much better than the...kale salad...duh Good cheese curds. Good cheese cake. Lots of beverage options.More

IF you're looking for a very casual atmosphere, and decent bar food at very reasonable prices - definitely check out ABV Social. Appetizers: We were actually very pleasantly surprised. The first thing we got was the Veg, Chips, & Dip - it was REALLY good,...and a good amount of fresh veggies too. Also very very good: the buffalo roasted cauliflower (it's a really trendy thing these days but they put a great flare in it with toasted pine nuts and honey soaked raisins...). Food: Burger = HUGE and not too expensive. Wings = ALSO pretty huge and not too expensive. Pan fried rainbow trout = surprisingly good, but a bit oily. Beverage: Quite the selection, and during happy hour they make a good margarita for $5. Atmosphere: it's exactly what you'd expect from a sports bar, but large and very spacious. (I imagine great for larger groups, although we were just 3). Service: This is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was that service was slightly slow during the second half of our meal as the restaurant got busier. It was a weeknight. We will definitely go back for a casual night out.More

Went in around 2:30p for a late lunch, very slow time for the business. one of the chairs at the table had food all over it. We asked for a high chair and the hostess brought a very dirty high chair over. Our server was...Jazmyn and when she finally came over we pointed out the dirty chair and high chair and asked her to wipe them down. She gave a quick swipe over the high chair leaving all of the gross food still stuck on it. We had to clean it ourselves with baby wipes to get all the gross stuff off of it.. and mind you it wasn’t just a few pieces, there was a very noticeable amount of smeared stuff and food pieces on the front and sides right where a child’s hands go. I asked what were in the “steamed vegetable” side that comes with the kids meals, she said it was just carrot, cauliflower and broccoli. I asked if the kitchen could overcook it so that it was very soft. I ordered the chicken sandwich with fries and my partner ordered the California burger. The vegetables we received were a tiny portion and random mix of Lima beans and pods, bell pepper, zucchini, cauliflower, mostly inedible parts of those vegetables like stems and skins and pods. The vegetables were still very hard and for a 1/4c portion it cost $5, absolutely ridiculous for what we got. The fried chicken was completely overcooked, it was black around the edges and so dry it was actually inedible. I couldn’t even take a bite it was so waxy and tough. The bottom bun was completely soaked with whatever the slaw was dressed in and fell to pieces when I picked it up. The music selection was good and the beer was alright. The food was absolutely awful and the establishment was disgusting. I would absolutely not bring children there with all the sickness that’s going around.. they clearly don’t care about sanitation. I’ve already told everyone I know in the area that it’s so not worth it. Our server Jazmyn was awful- very short with us and made it clear she wanted to be anywhere but there. She never asked us how the food was or came back to check on us. We had to flag her down for the bill. Mind you there were maybe two other tables in there.. she wasn’t busy. Terrible experience, will never return.More

Came here Thanksgiving eve and the place was quite busy. We ate in the game room so it was a little noisy with all the machines beckoning us to play. The appetizers, especially the GIGANTIC cheese curds were delicious. I had the trout and it...was plentiful but the sauce was too sweet and the garnish was too chewy. The fish was on the bland side. The beer and drinks were as expected in a sports bar (big).More

I ordered the crispy chicken buffalo salad and although the chicken was delicious, the greens consisted largely of cabbage. Not what I expected. I was disappointed. The 414 Big Pretzel was delicious and a big hit with everyone. It fed four of us. We had...great service.More

I liked the roominess of the space and ample outdoor seating. Service was okay. The food wasn't impressive. I liked the ginger beer. Seemed like mediocre bar food. Nothing exciting for those that want to stay away from greasy high-calorie food.More

Had dinner with friends outside on deck. Very pleasant with views of large screen 📺. Went with the Fish Tacos. They were ok. Fish not that flavorful and also was breaded and fried. Fries were good as well as the Giant Cheese curd. Service was...okay. I’d go elsewhere.More

I and 3 girlfriends stopped here after golf. It was a beautiful day and the outside terrace was open. The lunch specials are of great value. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with a Cesar salad. I would definitely order it again. Friendly waitress who...offered separate checks for us.More

I attended a retirement party in the loft. Excellent heavy appetizers. A little noisy though as it has concrete floors and all glass walls and very high ceiling. Had dinner with friends on another visit. We enjoyed appetizers and good selection of salads and entrees.

My wife and I ordered the cheese curds as an appetite and one of ABV's hamburgers. Although the hamburger was good, the cheese curds were not worth the calories. They were very large and the cheese was at best warm, not cooked through. If you...are looking for very large cheese curds ABV may be the place to get them.More
