We called while parking to find out if there was a wait. We were told there was no wait. When we arrived the host clearly looked at our two small children, and said there was a wait. Five parties were all sat before us in tables and booths. We were finally sat in a booth 30+ minutes after we arrived. We ordered almost thirty minutes later. We did not receive our food until almost two hours after we arrived.
The food was decent.

Until! My son clearly came down with food poisoning from his corn dog nuggets, fries, or milk.
We will not be returning, and I suggest you don't go here.

Today started out great, picked up a buddy for a quick lunch. Went to FPN and ordered the Grouper sandwich. It was brought to me, bit in to it and realized this is/'was not GROUPER. I believe it was Tilapia (a lot of places try to pass tilapia off as grouper). The manager came over and explained this was ASIAN grouper, but yes grouper. I am contacting the health department now to have this checked. I am convinced that what they are selling is not in any grouper family, but we'll leave that one to the authorities... I asked to sub with something else since this did not meet with my satisfaction, which he then told me that it was not the policy to swap out. I said fine don't do me any favors, I??ll pay and leave. He felt the need to keep arguing rather than just doing as I asked (very poor customer relations skills). I told him to swap or bring me the check and I would leave? He walked off and clearly and with witnesses called me a name regarding a portion of human anatomy. To say that I will never, ever return to this place is an understatement of all time.

I'd had lunch here several times before but it'd been years since I'd last visited. I invited a business partner and bragged about the food while we drove there. Needless to say, I for one was excited.
The reception was warm to begin with, I have always enjoyed the outdoor seating but it was just a little too hot and we wanted a quiet location where we could talk. So we were seated upstairs in the back. The waiter was for the most part ok. I didn't really pay him much attention until later.
We ordered the shrimp and crawfish etouffee. To be perfectly honest I had forgotten my glasses, so I asked the waiter "What's good." One of the things he'd recommended was the etouffee so that's what we both ordered.
Here's where it get's bad fellows; so if you don't want to read further I'd understand.
We waited for 20 min's for our lunch order. While waiting the domesticated Fly's began to take over. I was constantly fanning and brushing, and still trying to close the deal. When the food came, we thanked the waiter. But, after fighting with almost raw onions and peppers that out numbered the shrimp and crawfish almost 10 to 1 my jaws were tired from chewing. I'm 58 years old. I seldom complain; especially when I'm trying to make a sale. So I casually mentioned the junkyness of the etouffee. The clear fact that the peppers were virtually raw. And, that the seafood was almost non-existent.
Well, he immediately went and got the manager, who came to me appearing very rigid and inquiring about whether I had a complaint. I repeated it for him with an additional explanation of that which I'd told the waiter. He listened, said ok. And that was all.
So, my response is to tell everyone who I'd told about how fabulous the Front Page food and service was that it's no longer like that. Then, I've also taken to telling other people such as yourselves the same. In fact I joined this site only for this purpose. Next, I will begin telling perfect strangers that the manager didn't care about the food, the service, or me as a customer.

So, I will help him to have his message heard: The Front Page News is no longer news. It should be listed in the help wanted section. Or, worst still the Obits! At best the manager should've offered an excuse and/or an apology.

So, take my advice, don't waste your money or time; life is too short and should be spent someplace more enjoyable.

My wife and I took our daughter out to Front Page News on Crescent, last Saturday evening. We reserved a table, via Lindsay (one of the only good experiences with FPN) upfront near the band for 10:00PM. When we arrived, no one to show us our table. Once we located it, purely by chance, it was a complete mess, and there was no one to clean it up. When did Atlanta become self service? So we did bus our own table, and were promptly, and rudely yelled at by the waiter who magically showed up after we cleaned our own table, since (get this?) he was interested in the receipt for his tip; not that he wanted to take our order or even clean up the table.

The bar was 2-3 deep, smokey, and the floor was sticky and nasty, and the place was an utter mess. Now don't get me wrong, we were not looking for a 5 star experience here, but come on? "A" star would have been nice.

We managed to get a few rounds of drinks by shoving past the bar hangers (who could blame them for keeping their seats) but enough was enough, we left and gave another business our money.

The food was good.. My friends and I find it decent...But for me I love the meat ... the roasted meat . They may need to hassle up a little with the service but all throughout it was fine.

If you're looking for a good patio dining experience, this is the place to be. We went here with my family a few days ago and I simply loved the ambiance. But I was not really amazed with the food they served us. It was good, but nothing special. Nevertheless, we still enjoyed having brunch at this restaurant.

I got dragged to this place once again by a group of friends. As with the last trip the food was even worse than the previous time. Thankfully the whole group was so disgusted that we will not be going back. Service was slow, and the food was overpriced.

After a really poor meal we went to the bar downstairs. The bartender, Erin, was more interested in chatting up the staff than she was actually serving people. During the course of the night several people in our group waited over a half hour just for drinks. In one case they had to remind her that they gave her a 50 for 3 beers. Later in the night one of her girlfriends showed up and I watched one group of people wait 20 minutes just to pay and get their plastic back.

The only thing worse that the service and food was the bathrooms. This is a PG 13 website so I can't get into how bad they were

Front Page news is a staple on the Midtown Mile. It consistently provides a menu with tons of variety as well as a great drinking patio. You want a happy hour with a big pitcher of beer and an incredible patio with skyline views of the Midtown skyline? The Front Page News is the place for you. This gem usually holds a younger business crowd that keeps the party going long into the night on weekends. Great spot for happy hours and gamedays!

I go here at least once a week for a cheese burger and fries and often bring friends along who are now also FPN burger junkies. The burgers are reasonably priced, handmade and I love the freshly grilled taste. The atmosphere at this location is laid back and friendly. They have great patio and outdoor bar area along with an upstairs restaurant and bar. Try it out!!

FPN as it's known to the Midtown crowd is a great spot. The outside patio is quaint and the food is great! Try the buffalo chips, you'll be impressed. Food is reasonably priced and they make a good drink. And their bloody mary bar on Sunday is impressive!

Front Page News is part of the bar scene in Midtown. Located not far from MARTA, it's fairly easy to get to and from. This location sports two bars, upstairs and down as well as a patio seating area where on a cool night is a great place to catch up with some old friends.

When you think of brunch in atlanta you should think Front page. The deck is great and sunny. Even in bad weather the covered deck is available so outdoor eating never seems to be a problem. Waits can be long after 1pm so come early. We like the Eggs Sardo and the Cheese steak omlet which includes an entire New York strip steak inside it. Also great for dinner on weekdays, fair prices, but not cheap $8.00-20.00, Food is almost always better than expected and the servers are relaxed and nice.

We have been coming here for over 10 years and it gets better all the time. Heated patio. Big screen TVs. New menu that kept all out old favorties. I can see myself hanging a Front Page in 20 years! You may love most of the menu but when you are "having more than one" you must try the corn dog nuggets, old school amusement park food at its best. Stay away from the Onion rings, not that great. Tops in Midtown before a club or after a show!

I have to say my friend and I have eatten at Front Page a dozen or so times for lunch and Sunday Brunch. The food and service was great each time. Love the band that plays on Sunday it truly makes me feel like I'm back home on the gulf. Others I have recommended the restuarant to also felt that it was really good.

Don't do it, you'll be sorry. The sevice is S-L-O-W and the food not fresh by the time it drags up to the table. The spicy things are too spicy and everything else is below average. To top it off, the pigeons fly aound you as you eat. Yum, yum, pigeon poo in my jumbalya!

Just came from lunch at Front Page News. The food was terrible.

I ordered a burger and it was really bad. Tasted like it was a previously frozen pre-made patty - not good. This was the worst burger I've had in a long time. (The side of red beans and rice wasn't very good either, but not as bad as the burger.)

With so many better places to go for lunch, I won't go back to Front Page News - and suggest you think twice before going.

I really enjoy going to Front Page News. I would say it's not even close to being a cajun restaurant though. The service is really bad, I've been there more then several times and have never gotten anything close to good service i.e. always have to wait for refils and once you get your food the server never comes back to see if you need anything else. but I really enjoy the brunch on the weekend and they have good burgers.

Front Page is not good and is over priced. I would bet that 80% of the people who left a good review have never had authentic cajun/creole food, and/or are allergic to spices, don't like salt, ordered a sandwich or hummus, or they just don't have refined taste buds. Oh but the environment is great...just go to sit, drink but don't eat.

I went to Front Page 01/29/08 and I ordered the Cajun Jambalaya Egg Rolls, Buffalo Shrimp BLT Wrap and a side of Red Beans & Rice. The Cajun Jambalaya Egg Rolls were not good. The Jambalaya inside was really what made them taste bad. The Buffalo Shrimp BLT Wrap was ok. The Red Beans & Rice were horrible. This is one of those places you go if your really drunk and you dont care what you eat OR if you want fake Cajun Food. My question to the restaurant is how do you mess up Jambalaya and/or Red Beans & Rice??? Sad. If you dont like authentic Cajun/Creole food, seasoning and simply good food, go here, you will feel right at home.

I recommend Pappadeaux, its the closest you're going to get to authentic Cajun/Creole food without going to Louisiana. Plus their prices are in the same range as over priced, nasty FrontPage. If you want to pay $13.00 for etouffee go to Pappadeaux PLEASE I BEG OF YOU!

We recently tried Front Page News and found the food and atmosphere similar to many of our fav spots in New Orleans. The seafood gumbo was authentic and the bread on the shrimp poor boy was perfect. The bread pudding was as good or better than any we have eaten in the French Quarter. We tried the crab cakes and found them to be the best we have had anywhere. The muffuletta wasn't as good as those I have eaten at Franks or Central Grocery or Napoleon's...while the bread was authentic the olive salad wasn't even close and the layer of meats and cheese was way too thin. But otherwise we really enjoyed this place and will return many times.

Pros: Atmosphere, food quality and price, service, decent beer selection

Cons: smoking downstairs is allowed and parking costs $5 in garage across the street or free if you can find a meter space out front after 6pm

We stopped by last night for dinner.. We were seated on the patio, next to a fountain. great atmosphere. our server was very attentive and got food and drinks out to us quickly, checking up to make sure things were going well for us. My boyfriend and I both got burgers and were pleasantly surprised to find they were not overcooked! Very delicious.

We love to got to Front Page News on a Friday or Saturday night for their upscale bar type food. The chicken sandwiches are very tasty along with their french fries. We also love the live music that they have onthe weekends. The band will play great recent cover songs!

I should go in the winter. I always go during warm weather to enjoy the patio. I love the menu and the drinks are always good. Whenever I'm in need of cajun/ Louisiana food I go here. The patio is the coolest place and they stay open late. It's always a good place to take a first date or do some after work drinking.

If you are looking for a relaxing, friendly atmosphere than you owe it to yourself to visit Front Page News in Midtown. Despite the high volume, the bartenders will always make certain that all your needs are fully met. Don't be surprised if by the second visit, they remember your name and drink, especially Erin! She has been there for years and attracts quite a following. So go out and see for yourself why Front Page News is the place to be in Midtown. Great service, drinks, food, and music.

I arranged for a group of 20 college kids to come here for my boyfriend's birthday--40 showed up, and the staff was very helpful, moving tables around and getting people silverware. The service was consistent for each table, so we all got done around the same time, and the food and drinks were excellent! I was very impressed that we were served quickly--in about 15 minutes, as there was such a large group. I really enjoyed my salad with the restaurant's home made dressing, and my boyfriend loved the gumbo. A few other people were not very impressed with their food, but everyone loved the atmosphere!

Combine great cajun food with a beautiful garden patio dining area and you've got one of the best dining spots in Midtown. The food is excellent, the prices reasonable, and the ambience (especially outside) is great. FPN is one of the best cajun restaurants in the city.

We just returned from Jazz Fest in NOLA and luckily the party continues in Atlanta.
Had a party of five and had a wonderful time and dinner... in fact, too much food but that is the Nawlins way. One of our guests was from N.O. and even he said it was the real deal!
Best bets from our table: Tasty Red Beans and Rice, Rich Jambalaya, big chunks of veggies, chicken and sausage and just a hint of tomato, ettoufee, with a bit too much rice and our favorite the jumbo Thibadeaux shrimp. Altogether... a great experience.

Cons: Parking $

I go here about once a year. Previous visits have been great, but on a recent visit the food was poor. The Thibodeaux Shrimp, usually large and succulent, were overcooked and dry, and the horseradish was nonevident. The red beans and rice, usually very flavorful, was disappointing, with flavorless beans and an overdose of green onion garnish. The jambalaya was very heavy on the tomato flavor, tasting more like tomato paste and rice. Overall, a disappointing visit to what has traditionally been a great place to enjoy Cajun and Creole staples.

I've been coming here since they opened before the olympics in 96 and this place gets better ever year. The newly remodeled patio bar & dining room make the place look new. The new menu is a nice mix of bar food and more upscale items and daily specials and soups can be winners too . The best bartenders in Midtown work here, tip well once and they'll never forget to take care of you. want to watch sports hang out with Larry at the patio bar.

I grew up in New Orleans, uptown and when I miss it and can't face the 8 hour drive I head for Front Page News. The atmosphere is right on, a cross between an Uptown bar and a french quesrter patio. The food is consistantly good, and the New Orleans dishes are authentic not the tabasco covered mess most local restaurants pass off as Bayou food. Atlanta's BEST seafood gumbo and grat Ettoufee are classics but the down and dirty food like the burgers do it for me too. Don't miss the build your bloody mary bar on weekends, a great hangover cure. Both locations are good but I go for weekend drinking on Crescent Ave. and weekdays and Sunday brunch we head for Moreland Ave cause its rommier and parking is much easier and free.

LOVE FPN MIDTOWN for food and drinks on an off-night. The menu is great, my only negative is that I have so many favorites, I rarely try anything new. There is jambalaya, old school NOLA chow, good blackened chicken salad with about a pound of chicken, delicious gumbo, inventive pasta dishes, yummy aps, etc. Wine list is short but decent, and quite inexpensive. Martinis and special drink list is fun and reasonably priced. It is a little too much of a scene on fri/sat, as a line develops out front by 10pm, but the rest of the week it is not crowded. Perfect neighborhood locale for casual dinner and drinks!

ost places have either a good restaurant or a good night life. This Place definitely has more a ton of both. I have a blast everytime I come in but have noticed changes for the better recently. Food is awesome and you get alittle of everything that Atlanta's nightlife has to offer, great music, great bands, great drinks and great atmosphere. I have tried both ways and I recommend getting a table, Much better experience if your out with friends or trying to make an impression. I hate waiting in line at the bar so its the only way to beat it. I heard they hired a new manager so maybe thats why service has been better and they just remoded..who knows but I CANT wait to see whats next!!

The Front Page News cafe on Crescent in Midtown is awesome!!! We have spent two weekends in a row eating and drinking on the deck and the News has everything we need. The service was great, the food was wonderful, and the patio is perfect.

I have been going to Front Page for years; it is a fun, festive environment and the best pour in town. The food is always fabulous, whether it's traditional New Orleans fare you are looking for or great steaks, burgers, and the Jazz brunch and make it yourself Bloody Bar as well. Fat Tuesday can't be beat; there is no better place to celebrate, hands down.

I read some of the mixed reviews and must admit that I was a little apprehensive about going here, especially with my girlfriend, but tried it anyways. I can honestly say those who gave Front Page a poor review must have been on something or were just in a bad mood. Of course, they just might be idiots, but that's ok.

The food was good. The entire menu is worth a try. Our server was great, the music was just right, the liquor was perfect...it was a great evening and great date. I would recommend this to any couple. Definetely a winner .

The food is above average and the patio outside is excellent. This place can get noisy at night though and their bands tend to be pretty poor and very loud. Prices are a bit too high as well.

This is a great bar atmosphere and the food was pretty good! The best part of the restaurant is the outside dining. Even though it was almost 90 degrees today, the outdoor fans provided much needed relief from the sun and heat. I was HIGHLY impressed by the live music--jazz, classic soul, 80's mix. The band was great! Perfect for a relaxed Sunday afternoon brunch. Coulda stayed all day!

Being from New Orleans I was quite excited when I moved here and heard about Front Page News. What a disappointmnent! The red beans and rice tasted straight out of the can. The gumbo was flavorless and watery! The patio is really nice and the drinks were good. If you know REAL Cajun/Creole cuisine, you will be disappointed. Eat elsewhere and come to Front Page News for the patio

Feel like southern delights? Gotcha, you're at the right place! The Gumbo went down as fast as my finger could do the thumbs-up. Ready for some hot stuff? The Cajun Bloody(s) will make you walk up the wall, across the ceiling and back down on the other side... you might just want to stay for a hang-over breakfast and tickle your sore head with the best Bloody Mary in town! You go for it...... food is much improved also.
