Good drinking bar, food is decent, and the owners are always nice to us. I especially like NFL football on Sunday, where there are fans from every team there.

Was here with a "friend" and opted for the hot wings- some of the best wings I've tasted. Portions were generous, beer was cold and prices are very "friendly". Great place to grab a beer and hang out in downtown Belmont.

Chef salad was very good, other orders were good, but not spectacular. Service was good, but a bit under staffed But then the deep fried Oreos. Amazing to share

This place stays busy ! We go often for the wings and chef salad. If you like a good chef salad, this is the place to go. Start with the small. I haven't finished one yet. We enjoy visiting the bar staff there and have made friends along the way. There is a nice patio outside and it does have... More

Here for lunch on the day after Christmas. Surprisingly the town was a bit dead - and the Friends was one of only two establishments open for lunch. The fact they were open was the best this place can be. Two of us. One had the "small" chicken salad and it was O.K. and rather large for being "small." The... More

My husband, 6 year old son and I ate there for dinner on December 19, 2015. My son had fried shrimp. My husband and I had pork barbecue sandwich. The fried shrimp was very good. The pork barbecue was a little dry. They said that one of the sauces had some kick. Well, I guess I am used to spicy,... More

Stopped by on way to airport. Chad at the bar learns your name and uses it. No a big selection on tap, but the local option he suggested was good. Buffalo shrimp wrap was good but not great. I'll be back.

We arrived late on a Sunday hoping for some wings and beers and to catch the end of the games. Clearly the kitchen had shut down before we arrived - the wings were practically inedible and our complaints were met with a "sorry, the kitchen is shutting down". Maybe its better at other times, but avoid it on Sunday night... More

My girlfriend and I, started our evening, watching the Women's national soccer team World Cup Championship at Sammy'a Pub. We were asked to "tone it down, this is a family place." My girlfriend, assumed that it was because we were celebrating 4 goals in 16 minutes, Catlin Lloyd's midfield hat trick, and the USA in general to loudly, I thought... More
