Almost Famous - Great Northern
The food was fantastic after a short wait, the servers were very helpful and weren’t overbearing and my friends and I really enjoyed our time spent here
Loved this place. Food and service was top class. Will definitely be back soon
Food is always so good! Cheap but so tasty! Cocktails are fab too.
We come here quite regularly and always find the food to be very good and portion sizes large. We dont eat meat so have the portlandia and phok meat burgers ,they are absolutely delicious and would recommend them to anyone not just non meat eaters .
Food was delicious. Was fairly busy so had to wait for food. But when it came it was worth the wait.
I’ll be visiting almost famous again.
Amazing. Will definitely be returning.
Staff were lovely. Cocktails are a little pricey but they are nice. Food is just another level off amazing. And the atmosphere is really uplifting.
Great food, Great service, Great experience, would recommend!!!
The place was very cold, it made the evening uncomfortable.
Food was average. Staff were lovely, very helpful and couldn’t do enough for us.
The food was good but took half an hour to come to the table but considering how busy it was then that’s fine. The waiter was extremely unpleasant. She took the order wrong and then rudely and aggressively said I had only
Ordered 1 burger for a table of 3 after one one burger had arrived (and we questioned where the other burgers were) and then stormed off without even trying to fix the issue. We asked for the bill as we were in a rush (which we had explained to her already) she got the bill and slammed it on the table and walked off without asking how we even wish to pay. So we had to call her over again for a card machine.
Horrendous service. To be honest, we have never had this sort of service at Almost famous before, it’s always been great. So this was pretty disappointing especially when I was introducing my family to them for the first time after bragging about it. But then just having a burger between us. So we left to get a kebab after and actually really appreciated the lovely service we got there.
Exceptional burgers yet again. Love this place and glad i chose it as my birthday destination. Friendly staff and got one of the tables with sweets in as my kids loved it.
Booked a table for 2pm for a very special occasion - arrived to be told there wasn’t a table ready and we had at least a 60 minute wait for food... next time just tell me and I’ll book elsewhere!!!
love this place. it’s not just the burgers. The fries......
The service was terrible, the place wasn't that busy but appeared to be understaffed as nobody seemed to be able to take our order at all - after around 20 minutes of waiting we finally could order drinks but were told to wait and somebody would come and take the food order. after another 15 minutes, the drinks arrived and the same waitress took the food order. The food, much like the drinks took a lifetime to arrive (It was really tasty though). The waitress at times sounded almost condescending when we asked about the long waiting time
Yeah brilliant always recommend 🍔🍟😁
I have taken the family here 3 times now and we’ve always had great service and the food is always excellent.
Es recomendable porque la comida está buena pero teniamos una reserva para doce y nos dieron dos mesas separadas. Pedimos juntar otras mesas porque las que nos dieron eran las de sillones y nos dijeron que no.. estuvimos un montón de tiempo y todo es tiempo hubo mucho lugar vacío como para haber juntado mesas y listo. Era martes! Y no estaba lleno. Tardaron un montón en tomar el pedido de la comida.
Nice food, really poor service. Lots of kids more interested in playing on their phones rather than customer service. Food was nice when it arrived but took over 40 minutes and it wasn’t even busy. Service let’s the place down
The food took a long time to arrive to the table but it was very good when it did arrive
Food is always amazing... bacon bacon fries...mmmmm. Staff are all friendly and attentive.
Couldn't fault the food or the service but the restaurant was very cold
Yes is a great place to eat burgers and chips and also for drink something different. We had a very nice table in a quiet place luckly!
arrived to a restaurant with a lovely atmosphere, however the wait was unreasonable. We ordered 3 burgers, two portions of chicken and 3 portions of chips and only had one drink yet spent 1 hour 40 minutes in there, we waited 50 minutes for the food. We weren't once asked if we'd like more drinks (the first ones we purchased at the bar), we had to collar someone just for tap water. I would have usually left reviewing these type of issues however despite the food being tasty, the chicken left those of us who ate it with a bad stomach for the rest of the evening and into the morning which was the reason i decided to leave a review
Booked a table for 6.30 and we were still awaiting food an hour and a half later. Complaint was dealt with ok though the management stance was that this is the expected wait time at peak times, having eaten a number of restaurants both casual and formal a.) 6.30 isn't peak and b.) 90 minutes for a burger / fries / wings isn't standard at all. Would not be visiting again despite the food being good when served.
Great atmosphere, friendly fast service and tasty food
Attended for a team night out and it was pleasant. The food was good and the team enjoyed. The only problem was the very slow service that was followed up with the waitress advising us she needed the table back in an hour and that was before we had ordered food! Some of the team were also awaiting the drinks order. Overall it was a good experience but the service needs to improve.
The food is amazing, highly recommend the Triple Nom burger and the mac and cheese balls
Great service, servers were very attentive despite our group being absolute pains and all ordering burgers without some of their ingredients. We arrived early and had 12 guests instead of the 10 we booked for so they opened their private dining room for us which was really nice.
Food was good, no issues but the service was poor. From ordering food to actually receiving it was far too long and again poor service in clearing up the table and receiving the bill. When the table was cleared we asked for the bill and waited another 15 minutes (as waiting staff were sparse) to then ask again. We received and confirmed card payment and again no staff present so we had to find someone to pay for the food. Music far too loud with the same CD on repeat, we heard the same songs 3 times over.
Service was a little slow but it was a Saturday afternoon so understandable! Food was amazing, huge portions! Food price was reasonable but expensive drinks (£4 for large Pepsi for example) so I stuck to water. Definitely will be returning, much preferred this location to the Leeds venue.
Food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice. Maybe a bit too noisy and the waitress was rude.
Excellent food. We were seated quickly and checked on multiple times by waiters to make sure everything was ok. Music was playing but it was 't overbearing.
Fabulous food and great service by really staff. Super time
The restaurant was moderately busy, with a few tables waiting for food as we arrive. This was soon us as we waited over 45 minutes for three burgers and a portion of fries. As the restaurant became busier, the service pace didn’t pick up and we weren’t asked if we wanted further drinks, desserts or the bill. The food was good, perhaps a little pricey for the portion size, although not too extreme for a centre of Manchester restaurant.
Service was slow. Food was average. Wine glass dirty. Waited 50 mins for foid to arrive.
Never disappointed. The food and service is always excellent and great value. Why pay £10 for a burger in a pub when you can eat here for the same price?
I sat at the bar as I was early for my booking and was waiting for others, but the staff ignored me and didn't ask if I wanted a drink. Food was decent
Customer service was excellent and staff were very helpful and accommodating. Food was delicious!
Great afternoon at Almost Famous really nice food would come back
Great for big groups wanting a cheat meal! I Would go back
