    Very efficient service to begin with, prompt with taking orders. Unfortunately after this not so good, we waited 45 minutes for a pint and water to arrive with our other drinks only took 10 minutes. All the other tables around us were getting served food, and drinks. An hour later our food still hadn’t showed up, when we asked where is was they said it there was an error and out order didn’t go through so it would only be another 10-15 minutes. There was no food 10-15 minutes later and our order was still bottom of the list

    The member of staff who greeted us was miserable and didn’t really make us feel comfortable so she was obviously having a bad day. Food was good overall and the girl who waited on our table was lovely.

    We really enjoyed our burgers…some had beef, others the chicken one, plus fries which are ordered separately. I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed the burgers which were delicious and a good size portion. Additionally we had large bowls of daiquiris to share between 4 people each. Would recommend and happy to visit again.

    Everything was good including our server. The low rating for service was due to the 20 minute wait for drinks and the 40 minute wait for food. It’s not a great feeling as a seated customer to see loads of takeaway orders going out before your food arrives.

    Food excellent, however struggled to get staffs attention to order more drinks. Female waitress didn’t smile once and when we mentioned about the extra service charge that was put on our bill she wasn’t best pleased and basically said we can take it off in a not so nice tone. Therefore we took it off as we didn’t believe the staff that served us deserved a tip. Overall food was amazing, staff just need to be more available and crack a smile once or twice.

    Might have been nice , but the one I booked apparently closed down 3 weeks ago. The Burrito restaurant below took pity on us and gave us a table , which was quite enjoyable.

    Stunning portions. 2 of us had the pale ale and it was a lovely pint. The stubby pint glasses were charming. Everyone who served us was friendly and welcoming. The toilets were a bewildering trek up some stairs, but that is the case in a great many Manchester restaurants. We enjoyed our meals and would love to visit again

    Was really disappointed with the burger we had for how much it cost us. We had the bad vegan, I expected much more. It was tiny. I had a better burger at Burger King. No salad, just a small bun, with a plain burger and a some sauce. A bit disappointed as it looked nothing like we had seen on Instagram.

    As a gym junkie I don't go for a burger very often so when I do it has to be truly special. Almost Famous totally delivered!! 'Triple Nom 2.0' (double cheese burger with pulled pork - phenomenal) & 'Wonder Tots' (always go for tots over fries if ever they're on a menu - fries can be awesome ofc, but they're everywhere, whereas tots make a novel and delicious change - a pleasing crunch and tasty fluffy inside, topped off with a perfect mix of seasoning - irresistible!)

    Menue choice confusing. Was told the wrong price of food so I never ordered it. It was my daughters birthday which I put on the booking and nothing was said to me. Don't like the fact a service charge was added with no say so until I got my bill. The fries where smaller portion than usual. I paid extra for phoenix fries and it was a smallportiin on the side of the burger. Usually a separate portion and bigger. Also fries were well over cooked. Its not usually like this at AFGN. Usually I would recommend but not on the basis of this occasion

    I always love Almost Famous. The food was amazing. My only issue was that we'd barely finished the food, still fries on our plates that we were nibbling on and they cleared the table immediately. We'd been there a total of half an hour and they weren't rushed. Also prices have gone up, £20.00 for just a burger and fries felt like a bit of a bank breaker. Other than that, still great

    The burger we had were out of this world, we travelled an hour to visit here and the travel alone was worth it for the burgers and mac n cheese bites. Service was really good and fast, always checked on to see if there was anything we needed. Ambience was very nice and the lady that served us offered the child some juice to go in her cup which I thought was lovely. Will certainly be back soon :)

    First time I tried Almost Famous, Id won a meal for 4, so me and my kids had a great time. That was several years ago now. Since then I've been back many times. It is expensive for a burger, but nobody else really does the burger like they do. They look at it and think, "How mad can we make this?". And they go overboard, but in a brilliant way. Did notice though tht they no longer have a dessert section on the menu, but then again, after you've eaten one of their creations with a side of bacon-bacon fries, you couldnt anyway. Thank you Almost Famous for being Mad. AND, for having decent music on!
