Unless you are here to DRINK, skip it - Bar crowd predominates. Wings are EXPENSIVE, and not great anymore! Quality has tanked, sadl, and not even decent value.

We love to come here for our date night! Service is always good. Unfortunately they have hired another manager and he is running this place into the ground. Their quality of food has gone down hill. We ordered the wings only to be disappointed. We like fresh glasses with our drink order only to find out they don't have enough to do that. I also noticed that on this visit, they had no paper towels to dry your hands off after using the restroom. I had to use a bar towel!!!! I asked what happened they said Nick forgot to order them. We were not the only ones that have noticed a decline in the quality of this restaurant. I hope Ray figures it out before its too late. Not sure if we will go back.

We have been here several times, mostly for beer and wings. We like to sit at or near the bar and watch ESPN or games that are on. The wings are just really good and they are one of the few things we go out for that we don't cook at home. Have always had good service and the bar people are especially nice and helpful. The owner really did a nice job with the old place and keeps it clean. We see families in all the time and everyone seems to be happy. We will return and if you are visiting, drop in for a wing and beer!

We found this place because we do not eat at chain restaurants. Friends Bar & Grill is a nice clean (bathrooms too) place to get a cold and see the game or stop with the family and get good food at fair prices. The bacon cheese burger real good and my wife said her salad topped with steak (cooked the correct temp) and homemade bleu cheese was the KICK. If in N. GA. stop in.

Went for lunch on a Friday and not much action. Lots of sports TVs though. Like the fries a lot with a pepper seasoning and fried well. But I like fish tacos and they use talapia which is awful fish designed for fresh water farm raising for the poor. Tried fish & chips at waitress' suggestion since it was haddock but was greasy as if fryer was set a too low temp. But then I'm a food snob ! May or may not go back. Probably better as a happy hour place and to watch key games with friends.
