The servers are friendly. The menu looks good. But the food sounds better than it tastes. Wood-roasted pole beans were insanely overdressed and didn't have much flavor; a cucumber salad was better. Could we have some bread to go with them? No, we could not,...More

Based on reviews and a friend’s recommendation, we celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday at Wm Farmer & Son. It was a perfect setting. Fabulous menu, terrific atmosphere and friendly service. Recommend restaurant for special occasions or just a casual get together with friends.

We've seen the reviews here and thought we'd give this a go. Almost without exception, we were not disappointed. Our iced tea was very good, brewed and poured over hand-chiseled ice; our waitress made a point of informing us of that. We eschewed (and when...More

Best brunch I have had in a long long time. Oyster Benedict’s and fried French toast. Sitting at the booth down from the bar is the best seat in the house. Don’t let them tell you it is reserved cause if your there and it...More
