We tried this restaurant last year with a Groupon and we didn't have a very good experience. The place was under construction and we think we were there a few days before they closed for renovations which may have contributed to our sub par experience. The updated dining room looks great. We were greeted promptly and service was friendly and... More

We started with the new caprese soup, fantastic !! she had the chicken pot pie, large, great light flaky crust... More

This is a fun spot for a younger crowd. Food is decent. Their nachos are very good. It is a comfortable atmosphere. More of a pub/bar type place.

This was my first visit. I tried the chicken wrap and I loved it. It was prepared very well and the dressing that they used was delicious. It came with a Cole slaw as a side and was very tasty also. I will go back and try something else, the menu looks great. I would recommend it based on my... More

When we arrived the place was very busy. The hostess were very friendly an accommodating. After being seated we could hear the waitresses arguing among themselves over tables and fowl language was heard throughout the area. Our waitress was rude and unprofessional. Food was subpar and the presentation was terrible. The farm is a suitable name for this place just... More

Tacos are $3 on Tuesdays and I tried both the fish and pulled pork. Very tasty and a good amount of filling. Sour cream or guacamole is and additional 50 cents. There is an outdoor patio for dining in nice weather and cozy atmosphere inside. Have also tried their $5 burgers on Wednesdays. Very good portion, well cooked.

Stopped here for dinner and was greeted cheerfully and seated quickly. Service was excellent from start to finish but the food was just average. Ingredients appeared to be fresh but preparation was nothing special. I think however, if I had a bunch of kids, this might be a frequent stop. Both the menu and the setting are very kid friendly..and... More

We were happy to learn that the Farm Restaurant was re-opening after a major remodeling this past month. The decor is very pleasant and the atmosphere convivial as usual. One of us had the mussels which were delightful, we also ordered the tuna volcano ; a generous portion of seared tuna with seaweed salad and avocado... We ate on the... More

The Farm is one of my favorite restaurants since it serves great bbq food. I love the pulled pork sandwich. It's also nice since owners have opened up more Farm Bar and Grill's Elsewhere too.

We went to the Farm because we had a Groupon coupon and because of the good reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. The chili is amazing. It is thick and delicious. It is served with nacho chips and cheese on top. The half chicken is small, but, very good and tasty. The steak tips are good and tender. The... More
