Booked a table, turn up 15 minutes early and they had our booking but didn’t have a table for us, so the staff make-shifted a table together in the corner so 5 of us were basically sat on top of each other. Went to the bar to get some drinks, man behind the bar said ‘I’m too busy, take a seat on your table’. Apart from that our waiter was lovely and attentive and the food was lovely! Just a shame about the small table and the booking not going to plan.

Nice burger place, it was busy so we had to wait quite a while for food (45 minutes +) but when it came it was nice and the server we had was lovely. Maybe a little expensive for what you get.

The Boss chips were boss and the Liverpool burger was sound.

Waited over 1 hour for food. Tables arrived and left in the time and were served their food. Spoke to the waitress on 2 occasions and was told they operate out of 2 kitchens. The witness kept saying oh you'll see it reflected on bill but we just wanted our food. Wouldnt recommend.

Recently turning vegan and always having the loaded meat burgers from here I was a little worried I wouldn't enjoy the vegan burger , however it was amazing !! Amazing meal and very helpful waitress as she was also vegan I think so was given some helpful information! Would be Great to see another vegan burger on the menu for the future

Thought value for money wasn’t great. Service was not the best either so overall I wouldn’t come back.

Had an awful experience here for my boyfriends birthday. The toilets are disgustingly dirty and has a broken floor, your foot sinks down over a patch of metal (clearly trying to cover a hole), no soap, small amount of toilet roll left.
The food was subpar, previously in the Manchester site its been outstanding, so expected the same quality. So wrong, the burger was so greasy my bun had started to disintegrate and go very soggy, i returned it for a bottom bun to be slapped on and returned back to me upside down.
There was lack of care and organise from all the staff. Made the whole experience terrible, couldn't wait to leave, so didn't entertain the dessert menu.

Sadly our meal was blighted by the fact the chicken on the liberty burger had some inedible bone or something there of in the batter. We would have told somebody given the chance but service was scarce due to the restaurant being a little busy. The drinks weren't bad and when we did see the staff they where very polite and accommodating. The rest of the meal was fine the peter luger was good and so where the bacon fries. Just disappointing nothing was done about the liberty burger or even any good will gesture was made ruined my partners meal. I may consider going back after a while but in no rush too right now need to do better if you want to be the #1 burger place in liverpool...

Staff were very helpful. Drinks selection good. Quite expensive for what is basically burger and chips. Decor purposely dilapidated and messy.

Lovely food however after receiving our meals we realised the order was wrong and there was no check back on our meals. We did bring this to the waitress' attention at the end of the meal and she apologised.

Have been Almost Famous a few times and always had a great meal, this time though might be because a Saturday but waited over an hour after ordering food to come then once food arrived the chicken pieces on one of the burgers was cold the chips where that cold they had started going hard the only heat on them was the sauce, hope this was just a one off as I really like this restaurant.

We had a very enjoyable visit to Almost Famous last weekend. We were a party of 8 and had a number of requests to adapt the dishes to meet our party’s dietary restrictions. The team were very responsive and friendly and we all really appreciated their efforts. Thanks to everyone! We would definitely recommend and will be back.

Hey Wendy! Thank you so much for this lovely review! We've worked really hard with our team to ensure that we can be as accommodating as possible to those of you who might not fancy all of our weird and wonderful burger toppings. We're used to having big tables come to visit, and it's always a pleasure to make sure you get the food and drink that you want! See you soon! Leo, Restaurant Manager.

Food was amazing but took a while to come out. Burgers have shrunk so much but I was still so full from what I did get. The boss chips are AMAZING.

Insane but manageable burgers, ridiculous flavour combinations that sit so well together and the prospect of having to have your arteries professionally shaved.

The music selection was ace too; pop-punk to the max. Made me want to get my skateboard out and hate my parents again.

food was delicious, good music and atmosphere, though disappointed there was no dessert available on a Sunday afternoon. Made do with milkshakes but these were £1.50 more expensive each.

Really fun meal, quite a relaxed casual atmosphere with upbeat background music. The food was really nice, uber-american style - pretty messy and sticky so don't go in your best dress! Their massive f-off strawberry daiquiri was also a really fun addition to share - as well as tasty!

Arrived on time for our 4pm booking and were told to find a seat anywhere. We were not served until 10-15 minutes after we flagged down a member of staff. We ordered and the food took 40 minutes to arrive and was tepid.

Great burgers, great music and environment. Beer is good and they open the big window at the front during summer which helps with the heat. Definitely recommend
