We hit Front Page News for drinks & snacks on a Saturday night. None of us ordered anything substantial, so I can't give a complete review, but I can definitely say I'd like to go back for a full meal. We enjoyed a nice relaxed atmosphere on the patio. Our waiter was excellent & our appetizers were scrumptious. Satisfy the munchies with an order of fried pickles or the buffalo chips. Stay tuned for a "coming soon" complete review!

Front Page News is cool because it isn't snotty and pretentious like the rest of midtown. You can eat good fun and drink beer and dress casual and have fun. It's not like the "classy" midtown places that have strict dress codes - even though you can smoke inside and puke on the floor.

Love the food (Try: Buffalo chips for a starter and the Beer Battered Fish & Chips for a meal). Love the staff. Great drinks and great bands on Saturday night. A great walk-to spot for the Midtown crowd, and worth driving in for otherwise!

The food at front page news is excellent and the prices are fair. However, the last couple of times I've been there the service has been sub-par. Last time our waitress acted like we were going to stiff her on the tip so she wasn't going to go to any trouble for us. She didn't want to change our order even after she admitted that it had not been sent to the kitchen yet. She told us she simply didn't want to have to get her manager to void out the order in the computer system. I'll still go to front page news occasionally but they need to re-evaluate the level of service they are providing.

I have been to Front Page News and it is an alright place to hang out for Happy Hour. I like it a lot more for drinks than for food - I was never thrilled with their menu selections and I have always thought the items I did order were just OK at best.

There was definitely some good energy when we went. Crowds were decent but having a good time. Service was pretty good but the food was even better. A definite must visit

Although I came in by myself one evening, I noticed the large amount of groups here. People were friendly and had no problem talking to anyone. Food and drinks were excellent as well. I recommend checking this place out.

A group of friends and I stopped in here one evening while in Atlanta. this is definitely a great place for large groups to go to and not a good intimate setting. Food, drink and service were very good.

Front Page News is where you go with large, rowdy parties for birthdays and after work hapy hours on Fridays. Don't expect an intimate, quiet setting. Nice outdoor seating.

First off, this place bills itself as a New Orleans flova, Cajun food restaurant; Cajun Egg Rolls, Hummus with Pita bread, spinach dip, is not exactly Cajun. The menu is all over the place as to items. Atmosphere is VERY casual. Kids, noise, louder adults. That may be the only thing in common with NO.
