This was our third visit; first for happy hour (which was good), then lunch(not so good) and yesterday for happy hour. The pulled pork sandwich was great, but then downhill. Had the "shrimp w/cole slaw", 4 well cooked shrimp but served in a pool of a couple of tablespoons of slaw and a ton of sauce....not good. Also ordered the calamari...always good..right? This is always a large plate for happy hour at all restaurants we have gone to, but here it was a mini plate and the calamari was chewy (aka not fresh). Husband had the wedge salad, which was good. We'll probably go back if we're feeling like a pulled pork sandwich and wedge salad, but sadly probably not too often. It is so close to our home and we were hoping things would improve but things are way overpriced for what is being served.

Nice place to get some tasty snacks and brew at Happy Hour prices. The pulled pork sandwich was good and the wedge salad was fresh. We enjoyed our visit.

We went to Farrar's for Happy Hour several weeks ago based on all of the favorable recommendations and loved it. Service top notch, appetizers great. Last week a friend was visiting and we went for lunch. Service slow; waitress was pleasant but dining room full and she did the best she could. My husband got the special, a flat bread with pulled pork and it looked great. I got fish tacos which arrived barely warm. My friend got the bistro bowl, and although she said it was good, only ate half of it. Waitress never came back to ask if we wanted additional glass of wine or beer. Suggest they add more wait staff.

my sister recommended this so we went with her son for dinner. Truly an excellent choice for an appetizer. Looks like there is a nice patio for outdoor dining (still too cool to check it out).

Always a great place for lunch. The menu has lots of offerings and everything I have tried has been very good. I love their fish tacos.
