Tried to eat here

We liked the description of this eatery. However, we tried unsuccessfully to locate it. We were told it was on Main street. After driving up and down Main street we decided to eat elsewhere.

This down-town bar is a great place to meet up with friends. It doesn't have a whole lot of tables, and the tables are right by the bar, but there is plenty of space throughout, as well as a cute little outdoor terrace area for smokers or people who prefer to eat outdoors. If you do choose to eat out... More

This place is gross. It attracts some gross people too. The nachos are the only decent thing on the menu. Weekend nights get a little rowdy.

Friends Sports Bar & Grill is everything it advertises to be and a lot more! There are about 15 big screen TV's scattered about the place and during peak sporting events you can find pretty much any game you want. The bonus is that besides the consistently great food the kitchen turns out there is live music on the weekends... More

Enjoyed the local atmosphere and in all fairness I only had lunch there and mine may have been the exception. My chicken club sandwich tasted like pre-cooked rubbery chicken with no flavor. The service was ok too, but again in all fairness there were quite a few of us. I would go again for the beer & maybe try something... More

We went here for a late lunch after xmas. We were in Belmont to see the botanical gardens. The worst restaurant I have ever been to. And I never write reviews. But I felt so strongly about how poor of an experience this place was to pass up making this post. First off. let me say I felt terrible for... More

The MAIN attraction is the shag dances "Friends" hosts upstairs. My dancing friends rave about them. Friends is also a better choice for big groups than other local "pubs" - their seating just works better for that - and almost anyone can something on the menu to their liking. I've eaten here three times, once as a couple & twice... More

This is a great little place, classic little bar in a on Main Street downtown, good food, great service but a few immature college students can ruin your night.

FRIENDS has pool tables and weekly card games, as well as delicious fried pickels and live entertainment. The service can be slow at times, but the food is worth the wait. They are always crowded due to their $value, so have a coctail and relax with your friends....

Nice, mellow sports bar. Lots of TVs. Very reasonable prices with specials every night. We were there on Sunday and got a bunch of 50€ wings, which were just fine, not those tiny little things i was expecting. We like this place. Just an unassuming, friednly place to drink a beer and watch some sports.
