Me and my fiance loved the atmosphere at this place food was good, drinks were good, staff was nice and friendly. But the live music was the best of all! Recommend ;)

First with my husband, next with friends for birthday treat. First dinner. I had the coconut shrimp. Divine. My husband had baby back ribs. Very good, but unusual seasoning. Then for our birthday celebration. I had the Mahi Mahi. It was excellent as were the sides. Husband had filet, well done. It was perfect! Well done beef is always iffy,... More

It sounds like you may have stopped in for your birthday most recently, Sandy, so we hope it was a wonderful one! We're thankful you shared the time with us, and we're glad our kitchen knocked everything out of the park for you. Hope we can share the next occasion with you!

I had Caribbean Seafood platter for $14. 3 shrimp stuffed w/ crab meat, 3 melt in your mouth scallops, grilled grouper and sweet potato fries. My only complaint was the crab meat stuffing seemed to have a lot of filler. Companion 1 had taco salad and loved it. Companion 2 had Roast Turkey and Cranberry sandwich with sweet potato fries...

We were so impressed with the food we returned to this restaurant a few days later, to our surprise, not only did the waitress remember us, but she also recalled the salad dressings that we had individually ordered and brought ketchup to the table without prompting as she had recalled we had asked for this 'last time'. the food is...

Food is very good but pricey. Outdoor seeking is pretty but very packed in. Specials are very pricey, portions are ok, but haven't had a bad meal yet. We go when friends and family are in town.

We're glad everything is as delicious as you could ask for! Though we do get pretty busy around the summer time, we're thankful you can count on us whenever family makes it by for a visit. See you soon, we hope! Until then, Laurie and Keith, Owners More

We went for our anniversary. It was ok food, but not worth the price. I think we are paying for the new remodeling and "atmosphere."

Thank Cherie D
Laurie F, Owner at Farlow's On The Water, responded to this review

When we remodeled, it was important to us only to change the look, and not the prices or quality in any way but for the better. Of course, they're priced assuming everything is delicious, and we're sorry if things didn't stand out more -- we hope we can have another chance to show you a wonderful experience. Happy anniversary, by... More

We had mussells and coconut hogfish. Ever bite was wonderful! We did't have room for dessert, but all that passed by looked delightful

We did two lunches at Farlow's during our annual trip to Englewood. Our server was Pam for both lunches and she was outstanding. The food was delicious and prepared perfectly as always. They were closed for renovations during our last trip but the new inside and outside areas are beautiful. There are a lot of very good restaurants in Englewood... More

Even though we live here year around, Farlow's is not on our normal visitation list. My wife likes salmon, not on their menu. I like a ribeye, on the menu, but at $42, not even close to being competitive with anyone else in town in the $20+ range for the same thing. Food's great if you can get what you... More

We're disappointed we don't get to see you and your wife a bit more often, Steve! While we focus largely on regional and local fresh-caught fish on our menu, our ribeye really isn't like what you can order for $20. At 14 oz. and wet-aged for 21 days, our price is certainly comparable to prices at a steakhouse for the... More

Stopped in for lunch while shopping. I ordered fried green tomatoes and the Black bean veggie burger. Both were outstanding. The waitress and staff were attentive . They refilled my tea frequently. The manager stopped by my table and asked how my meal,was. Excellent food and service.
