First time at this location (all other times at the Shepherd location) and was blown away by the quality of everything … will make it a regular, for sure.

Great place to take our family of 6 for a birthday dinner. The grill came highly recommended and I’m grateful. Gary was a great server, the food was excellent and we were able to have nice family conversation. It’s a varied menu where everyone can find a delicious entree. From valet to table all employees were very kind. We have 4 teens with good palettes and everyone was happy. Thanks for a great birthday experience.

Visited The Federal Grill - Hedwig Village with my wife and 2 sons. We were seated at a hi-top table which was perfect for the 4 of us. Everything was fantastic: table bread, fried cheeseburger eggrolls, New York Strip with veggies & mashed potatoes, redfish special (2 of us got that ), and the Thai Shrimp & Grits ... all was delicious. The Old Fashioned and the Bees Knees were each worth every sip. The service was timely and courteous. Highly recommend.

The restaurant has a nice vibe to it. I have been here several times. They were busy and it seemed like our server may have had tables in various places of the restaurant. It took us at least 10 minutes to place a drink order and another 10 to get the cocktails. We would have ordered more if she was around for us to order. My husband ordered the Caesar salad that was bland. He had the pecan crusted chicken, which is only offered as a salad, but they did allow a special order as a meal. It had good texture, but was also bland as were his mashed potatoes. His creamed spinach was good. I ordered the tuna and it was just ok. Once again not much flavor. My friend said her steak was good. We ordered a bottle of wine and once again it took a very long time to get the wine. I walked over to someone that seemed in charge and nicely let him know we had been waiting a long time for our wine. They soon brought it out.

A manager never came to ask if everything is ok after my mentioning it taking so long for drinks and wine. That is really restaurant 101.

I realize restaurants have had a tough time and did take out from them several times. I hope they can make a few improvements because it is great to have them in the neighborhood!

First time and will be back. The cheeseburger egg rolls were fabulous. Drinks a little pricy. I didn’t realize they had resumed happy drinks so could have ordered a similar $8 Manhattan. Better reserve a high table if you want one.

I love coming here for brunch! Good food and customer service!! The table seating is a bit too close in my opinion since we're in the middle of a pandemic. Not all customers put on a mask when they pass by. The waitstaff do which helps, but I wish the tables weren't so close. I'll probably start going a little later in the day to avoid the crowds, because I definitely plan to keep going!!

This was our first visit and the food was great. The problem was the table we had. It was positioned right in the middle of the waitstaff “path”. Throughout the ENTIRE meal, my chair was bumped repeatedly, my purse was displaced and knocked off, my back was literally touched, brushed, etc. Did not want to have that kind of proximity to anyone outside of my family especially at this time!!!!
Not once did anyone care or notice. Not even an excuse me. I moved my chair several times, nothing mattered to them. I guess it’s more important to get as many tables in a space than to notice customers comfort. Spending between $400-$500 for a meal, that should be something to expect.
Honestly, it ruined my meal and experience. My husband was upset and instead of having an after dinner drink or dessert, we chose to leave.
If I was a manager there, I would have never placed a table like that. I would have at least noticed.

Definitely make a reservation. Even on a Wednesday night, they were pretty busy. The food was incredible. I had the NY strip, and my husband had the stuffed chicken. We also ordered the crab cake appetizer. The service was great. We were even asked how everything was by the host as we were leaving. This was our first visit to The Federal Grill, and we will absolutely be going back.

Never disappoints. Tuna Poke for an appetizer. Caesar salads. And the main courses were Thai Shrimp and Grits and Short Rib. Plus the chocolate chip cookie with ice cream for dessert. Everything was fantastic. Highly recommend it.
