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.

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.

You're certain to run into somebody you know at Farrar's. This place doubles as the local community center. Great food served by very nice people. Nice atmosphere, very chill. The have both a bar and a restaurant. So glad this restaurant is here.

I know the restaurant can seat that many, but I would call in advance for a group that large.
