We had dinner here the other night and so enjoyed it. The restaurant isn’t too big inside, I would guess it seats about 50 people. We found the service to be very good, empty dishes were cleared quickly and drink glasses kept getting filled. I...More

Had dinner at the Farm Bistro June 15th. Service (Aubrie) was great, and the food was excellent. They have an interesting menu and do a good job on some unusual dishes. They also know how to make a good martini.

We live locally and consider this restaurant a special place. Comfort food ... YES! They also carry local produce for sale and use local produce in their dishes. YUMMY food!

Cute environment. Everyone in my family loved their food. Only reason I give it a 4 is service was tad slow, but that also could be to the fact there was a party of 15. Staff were all very sweet! Made you feel like family

The Farm Bistro is a farm-table, organic, locally grown restaurant. It was delicious. The menu is varied and unusual. I had Moroccan Lamb meatballs with potatoes in a light curry sauce. It was excellent. My husband had a wonderful burger. The salads were the best...More

We took advantage of their "late lunch"/tapas-martini time frame to introduce ourselves to this relatively new restaurant. We WILL be back. Because of the small (but not super small!) portions we ordered a number of different things. Each one was outstanding. The chef/owner(?) knows how...More

No outdoor seating or service--it is right off the highway. You may be able to "sweet talk your pet inside if he/she is well behaved." The food is incredible for such a small town--perhaps the pet can stay in the car....
