My sister and I eat here weekly and both love the food. She is vegan, so she gets a salad or veggies. I love the Gumbo and Grilled Cheese. The food is excellent and the service is always swift.

The service from Erica was exceptional. She was not only friendly but incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and the local area. The food choices were varied and the end result was amazing. Never in my life did I think I would eat a deep friend sandwich with strawberry jam...I did...it was immense. It was a quick lunch that turned into... More

I visited this restaurant after attending a concert across the street from it. I tried the wings, they were okay and VERY SMALL. My guest tried the teriyaki chicken. She hated it. There was so much sauce the rice was unrecognizable. The winner of the evening was the steak sandwich. It would win first place at this type of restaurant... More

My how Flowery Branch, GA has grown! And as they always say: "build it and they will come". Friends American Grill is tucked inside a quaint village off Hwy 400 that we stumbled upon in our great search of eats in Flowery Branch. We were greeted quickly and seated promptly and graced with quite a menu. The personality of Friends... More

We decided to stop in for lunch one day since we were shopping nearby and I have to say that the food and the service was average at best. There was nothing exceptional about the burgers at all. This was our one and only visit.

Having lunch there is on the nervous side as the music overpowers conversations unless you are sitting up close. While the service was very good, the food excellent, it is the atmosphere which makes the restaurant somewhat uncomfortable. Change the music, turn it down so guests can enjoy their meal and not feel "nervous".

We love eating here each year and plan on continuing to come back. Good burgers and fries. Nice relaxing place for the entire family.

So, it has been a while and we decided to give this place another try. The menu had not changed much. Still burgers, wings, a little Mexican and some sandwiches. Folks mostly go for the beer. We arrived and were greeted by a "Please Wait to Be Seated". So we did. And we did some more. Eventually a blonde waitress... More

Swatting flies at our table (my son killed two!). Burger was raw, the one that replaced it was burnt. Cajun chicken pasta wasn't Cajun, or chicken or pasta - don't know what it was! Wings were good though. DO NOT recommend eating here!!

Been there many times. In the beginning it was great service and food but as usual once the new is gone so is everything else. Went a few days ago, it was not busy at all, had to wait on the booth we wanted to be cleaned. The hostess acted as if we were bothering her to do it. It... More
