Big city menu with relaxing fun atmosphere without the traffic issue of heading to Portland. Inviting new addition taking over the entire building was long overdue!!! Fantastic for date night, family night, friend time, client treat and everything in between.

I've made two trips to Farrar's over the years since they opened. My wife and one kid have gone separately once, and report a similar experience. Each time I've gone there, the service has been abysmal. The first time - years ago, so adjust accordingly...More
