Sunday brunch Brought biscuits to start but they were a little dry. Wife says - the part of the salad with dressing was good. Not sure my English muffin was toasted before used in my Benedict. Cold and gummy - yuck! Service was good. Felt...More

We decided at the last minute today to go out for brunch. It had been a little while since we had been to the Federal American Grill and we love their brunch, so we arrived at 10 minutes to one. The parking lots were full,...More

Looking for a place to eat Saturday night and we tried here after my wife’s earlier experience. Great starter to share fried cheeseburger egg roll. Beef with crunchy shell and nice sauce. Excellent. Then steak salad for her + Mac & cheese side. Great choice...More

This location has been several different restaurants over the years. Federal American Grill is the most recent. It seems to be a pretty reliable lunch spot. The sandwiches are pretty tasty, especially the burger and Philly cheesesteak. Not many places in Houston have a really...More

We very much enjoyed our meal here today. I had the fried oysters and they were perfectly breaded and cooked and paired with a touch of sauce and slaw. Nothing was overpowering. My husband had a cheeseburger and said it was also very good. The...More

I tried to go once but they only have valet parking on weekends and NO parking in the area on the streets. I have no idea how the food and service are because I do not believe their parking is customer friendly.

Fantastic food and service. I hadn't been since the place first opened and was pleasantly surprised at the quality. Love the decor and all of the interesting quotes/decor. The crab cake was delicious-all crab, very little filler if any. The half baked cookie dessert was...More

While in Houston on business we looked for something not to far from our downtown hotel that sounded different. Glad we choose this place. We were sitted quickly based on our reservation. Walking into the joint, I couldn’t help but notice the types of cars...More

This place is a few minutes from our house and has been on our radar for a while. We went there finally and were mostly disappointed. The food ranges from average to good. But it's priced at excellent to amazing levels. Service was attentive. We...More

Sorry, I was a reviewer not the owner. However in looking at their website, they have a private room for larger parties. It says it can hold 40 but maybe they can move tables, etc for the extra 6. You can call them at... More
