Had a good meal a One Federal. Service was very good. Ambiance was fine. Nice, old building, but wooden tables ended up with puddles from our sweating glasses ... something to absorb the water would have been a plus (even just cocktail napkins would have been good ... we didn't ask for any, we could have, but shouldn't have to)....

Cold local tap beer, simple wine list, pub fare with a few upscale entrees. Efficient, adaptable, and very welcoming service-food was good, not great, but all in all it was a nice experience for a light dinner

I was surprised the food here was exceptional. I would definitely return to this restaurant again. Which I did the following evening. Everything I ordered was delicious. The staff was professional and very pleasant. Pot roast was the special one of the evenings and it was the best I've ever eaten.

Visited on a Sunday evening and enjoyed our meals. We started off with a fried squash appetizer which was amazing. All 3 of us liked our meals- 1 burger, 1 chicken sandwich and fried seafood. They give plenty of food so you will not go hungry that's for sure. Mom raved about her seafood and declared the chef a genius.... More

Food is good, dinners and sandwiches both. Sometimes a little dry or well done depending on how busy they are and how long the food sits before serving. That may be a function of understaffing during busy periods. The bar is good although small, but I guess if you don't have a long wait that's okay. Service can be great,... More

My husband and I snuck away from the Maple Fest this weekend in search of a place to sit down and share a sandwich and a glass of cold beer. We went to One Federal and were seated immediately. We had terrific service, shared a yummy Cubano with great French Fries, and a glass of Stella Artois. It was about... More

Stopped for lunch while passing thru town. The building is a great old building with multiple little rooms so you felt like you had the place to yourself. The service was quick and friendly and the food was great and very well priced. I would recommend to anyone.

We stopped in St Albans traveling through the area and decided to try One Federal, which is located downtown one block off the Main Street. We arrived about 30 minutes before dinner was to be served, and asked if we could order dinner and were given a very cordial yes!!! The server was efficient and friendly, knowledgable of the menu,...
