Amazing as always.
Good atmosphere, good service and great food! Triple nom burger and phoenix fries are my go to every time.
Awesome as always! Love the food and staff mostly!
50% off burgers, amazing as always
Service was a little slower given it wasn't that busy but beautiful burger, can't complain!
Tasteless food , wont go again.
Booking for 7 , but needed to wait 15 min , that was ok , but no pint glasses upstairs so had to wait for them too.
Delicious food, great service by KY
Perfectly cooked, can’t wait to come back
You need to make it clear that steak on a burger will be raw and fries come covered in paprika….. not to everyone’s taste! Sadly we will not be returning!
Cold fries again, not quite the famous they think they are. Having to send something back , again, ruins the experience
Food was great and service was excellent! Gerard was helpful and friendly! Lunch here was the best part of our day!
Amazing food, great staff, food arrived quite quickly, highly recommend, bacon bacon fries are to die for!!!!
Excellent & quick service from all staff, great food and atmosphere
Amazing food as always - not one bad item - lovely venue and the most friendly, helpful staff who were great with our baby daughter and were the first restaurant to, when seating us, explain where the baby changing was and bring her some paper and crayons. Such a great detail and just another reason we love AF!
Food was spot on, our burgers came out to how we wanted them. And the bacon bacon fries are a must!
Juicy burgers just the right size. Good portions of fries. Friendly quick service.
The best burgers! Service was a little slow, we booked for 7:30pm but didn’t get seated until 8:00pm. It was so busy but worth the wait!
Superb! Especially at 50 percent off burgers but even without that! Lots on a burger and just a perfect size, not too much.
Great food great service nice place to catch up with friends. Be back soon.
Visited on a Monday night so was fairly quiet as expected. Food and drinks (mainly drinks) took a while to arrive which wasn't great given how quiet it was.
I got the 'Phoenix' burger which was one of the nicest I've ever had from anywhere and the Bacon fries were top-notch as well.
My girlfriend doesn't really eat red meat and there was only 1 chicken burger which is where I think they could improve as there were ~10 beef burgers.
Definitely worth a visit if you haven't been before and I'd go back in a heartbeat.
We were looked after by Molly. Serve was great & the food was amazing as always. The massive daiquiri was incredible. Loved everything.
Staff made us feel a bit uncomfortable. Other than that everything else was alright… burgers are not as big as they seem on Instagram… which was good for us.
Always excellent, best burgers in Manchester by far
The service was really good, everyone really nice and friendly
The food was great, couldn’t fault how fast the food came out. Waitress took our order, missed items off but that was fine as the manager made sure we got them soon (also got a drink to compensate). However we order more drinks and the same happened again, the order wasn’t what we ordered. We tried to get someone’s attention but nobody came over at all. However they were quick enough to make sure we paid the bill. Nice enough place but service is none existent
I am a big fan of Almost Famous. I love the burgers from here as they are different to other places and have a quirky twist. I just couldn't help but feel a little disappointed last time as it was really cold in the restaurant so I had my coat on the whole time. I'm not sure if there was an issue with the heating as I saw some electric heaters being used at other tables but it was really cold so I felt like me and my partner were rushing a bit as we were uncomfortable. If it was warmer we would have stayed a bit longer and got some cocktails. The food wasn't hot either, it was slightly warm, but I was so hungry I just ate it, it was still tasty, but like my food to be piping hot.
I would still return, but probably to the Liverpool resturant as I've always had a great experience at that one!
Food was nice as always but was given a dirty glass with lipstick on twice and the toilet roll in the toilets was just on the floor so unable to use and was cold whilst sat down - great offer on food though
Burgers were burnt which was a shame, staff were friendly
Great food, really attentive service (without being overbearing) and an overall fantastic experience
I’d forgotten how good a burger can taste….but Almost Famous made me remember! Great food and cheeky cocktail for some at lunchtime. Well worth a visit if you like great burgers, and not to forget fries with equally calorific toppings.
Always a great experience, very accommodating with us as we have a new born son and the food is always amazing!
Really good food and service. Recommend to anyone
Excellent food and great staff. Lovely atmosphere
They had 50% off burgers which was good, love the bacon bacon fries! Every time I come here no one ever asks if your food is ok they just presume it is. Only down thing is we was sat by the entrance and it was freezing another customer had to get up and tell them to shut the doors at the entrance. Other than that was fine
Another disappointing visit to AF Great Northern - server didn't submit my order to the kitchen correctly, lots of menu items unavailable, no check-backs or general customer care from serving team. We used to absolutely love AF - our fave place to eat - but it's really gone downhill :(
The food was very nice but I was expecting a bit more really. I had heard great things and my expectations were high but the food was quite average. The burgers were not as big as I had expected, our fries were slighty undercooked. All round not a bad meal but I won't be rushing back anytime soon.
I have loved Amost Famous for years but this last trip was awful. It wasn't very busy yet my diet Pepsi took 15 mins to arrive. Our food arrived but my burger was cold and tasted horrid. So disappointed as I usually love it. Not keen to rush back
One of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten, and the sides were amazing too! Easy to order using your phone at the table. Service was quick and efficient. Will be back!
With the pandemic still ongoing it was very quiet, shame but still enjoyed it.
Best food ive had in a long time will defo be coming back to try the rest of the menu
Went for my daughter’s birthday. They made such a fuss of her, staff were amazing. Food was phenomenal, as usual. 10/10.
Enjoyed the food. Fast service and the most amazing fries. Tasty fresh and pipping hot, excellent burger choices and fries add on’s
I will definitely return to try the wings, although I’d like to see a more rebuts blue cheese sauce
