I have enjoyed The Fed since they opened and this was no different. A slightly different menu than the last time I was there which is always exciting. Friendly service, comfortably quiet and very good quality food means we will be returning.
Love the atmosphere at the Fed. Some of the items are a bit pricey IMO but we enjoy having a local place with such a fun atmosphere to visit!
Really liked our server, Jared. Knowledgeable about the craft beers and liked his relaxed attitude. We had a table closer to the kitchen/stairs, so we got to see what was coming out to be served—Lots of burgers and cauliflower. We had the Cauliflower appetizer and that was excellent. I liked my dish, the Parmesan Whitefish. It was light and served with vegetables. The rice that came with it was just blah. My husband didn’t like his dish, the Lobster Gnocchi. Overall, the atmosphere was nice, I think we would choose other dishes to try on a future visit.
From the moment of planning through the end of the evening...a ten. We hosted clients in the upstairs vault and it was a perfect evening.
Food was ok although overpriced and slow to the table. Server was nice and apologized several times for the delay. Drinks way overpriced. Overall not impressed and will not be back.
This place is ADORABLE!!!! Such a cute, fun place for a special occasion or just nice brunch with friends. So many cute places to take pics and enjoy. The food was good and not overpriced. Lots of drink options too. Our service however, was pretty slow and we didn’t get our food for about an hour after we got there. Other than that I loved it!
LOVED the decor and phenomenal food. Great vibes! Best in Clarkston!
From the moment we walked in the door.... I was impressed! The decor is so chic and the staff is so friendly! The food was wonderful . recommend the poke bowl so good! I will be back....already made a reservation for the weekend!
It was a surprise for my wife. Everyone and everything was amazing.We will be back
Great atmosphere, our server Rob was fantastic! The cocktails were good and the food was delicious!
Great service , we were having a date night so they placed us with a special table .... if you are going on a date make sure to hit date on open table !!!!
The Fed is the best brunch restaurant in the area and we love the Bloody Mary bar.
Loved the decor upstairs. I heard it was even better downstairs. Didn't care for the menu. The food was average. I heard dinner is better. BEAUTIFUL atmosphere.
Waiter was great! Food was delicious. A little pricey.
The decor and staff are top notch. I ordered Filet and broccoli I & my husband ordered a strip steak with potatoes . The steaks had zero flavor. I kept adding salt bc I could t taste anything at all. For the price of the steaks it was not worth it - soups were good . We would try it again and order something else but if you can’t cook steaks , what’s wrong with you? Were they poor quality? Hmmm.
I would recommend going there for the ambiance, cocktails and to enjoy the live music. I would not recommend the food. Too expensive for what it is and doesn’t taste that great either. Asked for a rare steak and it came out medium well and Med rare the second time. Friends pasta was incredibly bland.
Very slow to great us when arriving. Sat near bar with many staff around, took a LONG time for waiter to arrive. Hostess did not give us a drink menu. We waited over 5 minutes for waite to return for our drink order....we left.
This is the second time I’ve been to the Fed. I was so impressed by it the first time I had to take my mother there for brunch. The food was excellent the service was great everything I expect from this restaurant. However there was a group of people table next to us having a few too many mimosas. Management didn’t seem too concerned about doing anything about it. They were noisy loud and Obnoxious. This is supposed to be a respectable fine dining place not some place for a bunch of drunks at Sunday brunch.
Food was good maybe a little over priced. Very cool setting, especially if you want to have a drink while waiting for your table. Seats are very uncomfortable. We really enjoyed our time otherwise.
Fourth time being to The Fed and each time the food/service has been so underwhelming. We came in for what we thought was a “St.Paddys” day menu to be told that the menu was going to be served only in the evening (nowhere online website/Instagram did it say evening only! A table near us also came in for the St.Paddys day food so we weren’t alone!) We went ahead and ordered brunch as we were starving and waited a long time for it to get to us, once it arrived it was mediocre. We decided to come back in the evening to taste the St.Paddys day menu (as we had been really excited for it!) - we wish we hadn’t. Food was terrible!! Again, another long wait for it to get to us. I would go back to The Fed to have a drink as the building is so beautiful!! But I won’t be eating there again! I know I’m not the only one that feels this way.
Have been to The Fed several times and decided to try their Sunday brunch. The food was fantastic and we love the ambience thus, always returning for more! On this particular visit our service was beyond awful. Once she took our drink and food order we never saw her again. Not once did she ask if everything was okay, ask if we needed any more to drink (glasses remained empty until we flagged her down) or bother to communicate with us at all. Our lovely brunch turned into a situation of no desire to return. We feel a great dining experience is not only the food, drink and ambience, but also the service. A server can either make or break a fabulous meal. This time, our server definitely had a negative impact on our meal.
Bottomless mimosa brunch for $15 is a great pull. Bloody Mary’s were excellent. My Cobb salad was delicious as were the breakfast items but unfortunately my husbands burger was very undercooked he almost couldn’t eat it but the fries are great. Hopefully the burger was a fluke.
The atmosphere and food combined to make this a perfect brunch spot in Clarkston! Be sure to check out the decor in the lower level, and try the avocado toast!
We LOVE it there... cant wait to come back and sit outside!
Service was excellent whitefish excellent
The atmosphere is ecclectic and the menu is impressive to read but disappointing to the taste buds. We ordered Tomato Basil soup and it arrived lukewarm and tasteless. The cobb salad was average. Their trademark califlower appetizer is outstanding, however. We were overall disappointed.
What a nice surprise. We had salmon that was not overcooked, as restaurants normally do, and a great waiter named Rob. This place is a good concept, a bank restaurant, with good ambiance and good food. We'll be back. We are from Grand Blanc and on our way to the Detroit Symphony after dinner. This was a fantastic way to avoid traffic on I-75 for a trip downtown to the D.
My husband and I went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we couldn't be more satisfied with this place! The food and service is amazing but the best of all is the beautiful atmosphere, very romantic!
Wonderful meal! Upon recommendation from our server , we had salmon and swordfish ! Both were prepared perfectly. Our server even arranged for us to have a personal tour which was very interesting! Just loved the whole experience!
Beautiful and cozy place. Great food and service. Had dinner upstairs in the elegant dining room and had a drink downstairs in a comfortable sheik setting!
I have dined here about 5 times. The service is truly hit or miss. The food is acceptable to decent but, seriously nothing to write home about. The interior is gorgeous and very presentable. The downstairs bars is wonderful, but loud. The best suggestion is to stop in here for drinks or desert while on your way to another place to eat.
Food was amazing! Excellent service
One of our favorite places to eat.
Our friends loved it.
Service and food was excellent. Made reservations for 10:00 on a Sunday, though they didn’t appear necessary once we arrived. Our seat was already ready for us, even when we arrived 10 mins early. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would go back.
Food came out much too quickly. No one at the table was even halfway through our salads when all our main courses showed up.
Great environment, good food selection with a small
We loved our server !!
The food and mimosas were great too
The Fed community was one of the best restaurants I have been to in a a while. The food was awesome not to mention that wonderful I called Bohemian decorating which made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. We will be back And I will tell my friends
Great atmosphere and wonderful food! Small wait time at bar waiting for table passed quickly with a great cocktail.
The white cloth napkins shed all over our dark clothes. Food was not that great
