    Excellent service, food was delicious and from looking at the menu, everything looks good. Definitely served good sized portions for the price. It's a great place to go for brunch, lunch, or dinner. I will definitely be returning again.

    The place looks good and the service was great but the prices were too high for the quality of the food that they serve. It just was not very good. Do you want a good steak go to saltgrass or longhorn steakhouse. do you want good food at a decent price go to cheddars or outback steakhouse. Do you wanna be ripped off then go to federal gril!

    My wife had a salad entree with grilled shrimp which was outstanding. I had the Cajun chicken sandwich, and it was tasty but a mess. The sandwich was served on a special bun that was delicious; however, it was very thick and very wet. After carefully cutting the sandwich in half, I could not pick it up because the bottom bun stuck to the plate. I ate it with a knife and fork. (This is not what I had in mind.) Again, everything was tasty, and the service was friendly and prompt. We love the restaurant and will return. I just won't order the sandwich.

    From the moment we stepped in, the service was amazing. Our server, Sarita, made our experience very delightful. My son and I will be back. Everyone there was very friendly and polite. I’ve read reviews that said otherwise, so I wanted to make sure to leave our experience.

    I ordered a burger with house cut fries. Everything about it was amazing-house cut fries were seasoned perfectly and crispy on the outside while soft on the inside, top quality bacon, hamburger buns, burger was so yummy with a perfect char and seasoned well, house made sauce on top, just the right amount, hot pepper jelly and biscuits were the best, bread pudding for dessert was amazing, great vibe and decor!

    I love the ambiance of this place. I’ve only been there for lunch a few times but service and food is good. I do, however, think it is way too pricey. Most restaurants have upped their prices and it can be excessive. $18 for quesadillas on the appetizers menu (that I had for lunch) was too much that’s as mostly bell pepper, cheese and tortilla. I keep going back for the ambiance and service though, so what can I say??

    This was our first time dining at Federal American Grill (celebrating Valentines a few days late.) I wish I could give it 10 stars! Everything was fantastic! The service was impeccable! Our server was incredibly knowledgeable of the menu and was patient with any questions we had. The food was amazing! I would put it in my top 5 of best places to eat!

    We celebrated Valentines Day at the Federal Grill with the fixed price menu. The service was great and the food was excellent. The ambience was wonderful with special lighting and a roving saxophonist (a very innovative idea). While he was very accomplished and played very romantic music, the volume might have been turned down a notch. Although a fixed price menu is a good idea for the restaurant...and patrons, I was surprised by the automatic 20% gratuity for the two of us. In any event, altogether a very romantic and tasty event!

    This was by far the worse V-day dinner I've ever had, and I feel bad having to write this review because the server was excellent. The food was by far not worth the price I paid for. The appetizer sizes were laughable. The filet mignon was hardly seasoned and was not cooked to what we ordered. The mashed potatoes where not flavorful, and the Brussel sprouts tasted like they were cooked in only butter. The salmon with couscous was ok, but no flavor on anything. The dessert sizes were laughable as well. We were sat next to a TV that had to have something on it so they put a crackling fire scene on it. Therefore, the entire time at the table my wife and I had to listen to the crackling. The music did not match the V-day environment and was quite confusing.

    These restaurants never disappoint. We came on a Saturday night, when reservations were only available late, but when we got there, the place was still packed. We were quickly seated, the staff was attentive without be obsequious, the service impeccable. It's obvious the managers have focused on training. The only (tiniest) problem was they ran out of NY strip, which my son ordered for his birthday meal. He changed the order to the filet, added double mac 'n cheese and was happy. He went on and on about the taste and tenderness of the steak. Noise was "energetic" as the say at first, but then quieted down as diners retired. We were having a great time, but decided to leave when we realized we were "stragglers" and maybe the staff wanted to go home. No one made us feel that way, but we know they probably wanted to clean up, shut down. Great place. Matt runs a flagship operation at every location.
