We had a nice time!
Delicious and fun! We will be back.
Awesome food, very clean and spaced appropriately and we had an awesomely positive server that kept us smiling!
Thank you again for having outside dining and for having staff willing to go out into the chilly temperatures to serve us. Andriana was excellent as usual. The only issue we had was that there were absolutely NO specials available, not even one, though were were given the “Specials” menu. Kind of disappointing but not a big deal. We’ll be back soon!
A great”local”:friendly with great fresh food and good service.
Always great at the farm. Food is amazing !! So is the staff ❤️
Thank you for having Outside Dining!
Alexis is very welcoming and pleasant at the front desk.
Andriana was excellent, didn’t miss anything! Love the food, beer selection, and patio.
The Farm is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always great. It’s very comfortable and the service is excellent. We will be back again & again.
Had a great time outside dining! Ian took good care of us.
Great food and good service.
Thanks for having outside dining!!! Good value overall. Adriana was excellent. Kathy & Alexis are very nice!
We’re outside dining as long as possible
Service was good. Food came fast. Still felt crowded in bar area.
Great food, great atmosphere and super service . Excellent out door dining in a comfortable setting. Always enjoy visiting. You get generous portions and almost always end up with a good size doggy bag.
We have come to the farm a couple of times and the food and drinks are always great. The only issue is the management must have a problem with “out of state” IDs. I have brought numerous friends who are over 21 years old but due to the ID not being from Massachusetts, there’s always a stand off to have them be served. They need to find a new policy to deal with this.
We got their pulled pork nachos usually they are very good. But this time I felt like they skimped on the pulled pork kind of disappointing. Not the same. Also got the tuna appetizer the tuna was not so good.
We did enjoy the food at The Farm Bar and Grille. We sat outside and although it was a little cold, the food and beverages made it worth while.
I found the food to be eh, the service less than optimal, but was MORE CONCERNED with the COMPLETE LACK OF SOCIAL DISTANCING at the Bar. Cleary there was no concern for the current climate that we ALL are in at the present moment.
This was a wonderful date night place.
We love the outside dining. Kosta was excellent. Thank you Jayna for updating my points total. The only disappointment of the night was that my two favorite draft beers were out of stock, that was a bummer.
Enjoyed the outdoor area felt comfortable.
Outside dining is definitely for us. We hope it can continue through the Fall. Table was perfect & service was very good. Isabella took good care of us and didn’t miss a beat.
never disappoints! Great food and restaurant! xxxx
A gem - refreshing to find. We needed up going back a second time! Relaxed- not fussy - friendly and good food.
Can’t really accurately rate food as we never got in restaurant. Showed up for 730 reservation for outdoor seating. Arrived 5 min early told table would not be ready for at least 20 minutes. We tried to be understanding—the restaurant was over capacity given Covid. We waited until 750 asked status was told realistically it would be another 30 minutes. We were so disappointed and frustrated. Asked about indoor seating-it was available but it was not properly distanced. We decided to leave as it was very uncomfortable. The truly disheartening thing is we asked to speak to management never had anyone come. It also was unbelievable that workers had no problem breaking social distance policies to accommodate tables. And when we checked open table app they continued to take reservations knowing they could not accommodate them. It was truly disappointing.
We waited forever for our server to come over and the service was super slow. Our food was cold when it came out which was disappointing, but the drinks were really good.
Food, Drinks, Service and dining area all wonderful!
Alexa & Kathy are excellent! We love the atmosphere & vibe of the outside dining. We’ll be back, again 👍🏻
Fantastic food, fast and very friendly staff!
The fried smoked gouda was OUTSTANDING! My wife loved the steak frites. The building is new and beautiful. I love the architecture.
Getting together w friends. Denise was great. Food & drinks were excellent. Love the mozz bites & fried cajun shrimp.
We sat outside which was what I wanted from the reservation so that was good but they don’t have the entire outdoor dining space lit and our girlfriends were cold, could use heat lanterns. Service was slow to get to ya once seated and was just decent entire night. Mixed drinks were not very good. Next time if there is one I’d go with cider or something ore bottled. Best food selection was the Mac n cheese. Would unfortunately not recommend.
Had my parents join us, they have mobility issues. My Mom asked the hostess “Does you establishment have a handicapped bathroom?” Unbelievably, the hostess didn’t know & didn’t care to find out. I was not impressed to see my Mom’s question treated as not important. Hostess couldn’t wait to get back to her cell phone. Your front-of-the house workers should at least pretend they care, or be trained on basic behaviors when dealing with any customer, especially seniors.
Excellent food and a lot of outdoor seating. Service was very good. I will definitely go back.
Hostesses seem bored and not interested in what they’re doing. My elderly mother asked the hostess if there was a handicapped bathroom. The young lady acted like she couldn’t care less, said she “didn’t know” and started playing with the host computer screen. Give me a break, act professional, you’re the front of the house.
Food great. Service good. Had reservation but got the worst table. Hostess a whacko. Flies inside and out. Disgusting.
Good pub food, cute back porch area
So yummy!!! Would like to see the personal size nachos back on the menu but fantastic nonetheless
Wonderful meal, attentive servers, it was a beautiful evening out. Selection was limited due to COVID menu. Looking forward to “normal” again.
