The house salad was $5 and with the exception of a few 1/4" diced cucumbers and a couple of carrot shavings almost all letuce. The burger is just a thin quarter pound burger on a cheap bun. The blue chese sauce with horse radish sounded good but it really wasn't. No onion, no lettuce, no tomato. Served in a basket... More

The outside of this place isn't much to look at but once you are inside it has a nice modern but still old-school feel. It's actually really cool. I had a burger with ghost pepper salt, roasted jalapenos, sriracha mayo, pepper jack cheese, and avocado. It was excellent, spicy, but not overpowering. The meat was juicy and tasty but perhaps...

I've lived in this neighborhood for 3 years and I can't believe tonight was the first time we tried it out. Excellent food, great place to bring loud kiddos. My husband is gluten free and the gf options are amazing - even gluten free fish & chips. Perfect spot to watch a game and get some good food! Great beer... More

We were staying near by and thought we would give it a go. Like many bars to a Brit, it was not that appealing from the outside but we were glad we gave it a go. Ended up going two nights in a row as the burgers were excellent and they have a cracking selection of beer. All served by... More

This was burger heaven...didn't expect it either. Had a make your own with their to-die-for homemade potato chips. The burger was cooked to perfection and melded with all the condiments I chose perfectly. Drinks were abundant - great beer selections and also good moscow mules. WEre there with Celiacs and they provide great gluten free options. Would def. recommend.

The Federal is right in our neighborhood and is my go-to place for lunch, dinner and/or a drink with my husband. The food is great, service is fantastic and we just can't get enough of this place! I've been out of town for a week and can't wait to go back as soon as I'm home.

Outstanding!!!! Went somewhere else for brunch, on a Sunday morning at 11 to meet friends...90 minute wait. Ended up at The Federal. They gladly seated us right away - OMG! The food was five stars, the service was five stars (recommendation: get the "special" bacon - you'll thank me! ;) Talk about lemonade out of lemons! Everybody in our group... More

The beer selection was great and the deviled eggs were even better! Great food selection all around for a dive bar. The service was a bit slow though but we had a large group of couples.

This is a neighborhood favorite for our son and daughter-in-law, so they usually take us for Happy Hour on Friday when we visit. Never disappointed. Today on Super Bowl Sunday we went for Sun. breakfast. I ordered three items from the extras menu and had an egg, hollandaise and the Fed bacon. All delicious. The owners are a young couple... More
