My Wife and I went with Friends here for dinner and were delightfully surprised. The service was great as was the food, it is a little pricey. But, the views and scenery were lovely !! We highly recommend this establishment !!

Friendly Farms is not "fine dining". It's home cooked type fare with the appetizers and side dishes served family style. They do not have a liquor license. The appetizers are a bit unusual in that they are simple foods. Pickled beets, cottage cheese, apple butter,...More
