On busy nights (we went there at the IU homecoming weekend) the restaurant may be overwhelmed, but if you come in again they will treat you very nicely. A good selection of healthy food, unique desserts, and staff courtesy makes this place very unique. They can also accommodate your demands to some extent, should you want anything particularly nice for... More

Great food in a fun environment! We stopped in here for a late lunch (very late) at 3 p.m. At that time, they only offer a limited "afternoon" menu, which was a little disappointing, but we very much enjoyed the creative garlic fries and the delicious bison burgers. My husband thought it was the best burger he'd had all year.... More

We went for beer and pizza after an evening at the theater. The wait staff was very attentive and the Puttanesca pizza, like so much of Chef Daniel Orr's menu, was excellent. The pizza, especially the crust and sauce, reminded me of pizza I had on a recent visit to Italy. The music added the perfect touch for our date... More

Usually FARM's food is just fantastic. We have eaten here a few times when the "student chefs" were in charge and it wasn't as wonderful and menu was limited. Sort of hit or miss on those days. I believe these were Sunday nights. The regular menu is always wonderful.

We had brunch at the Farm Restaurant. The food was good, and was all locally sourced. The Restaurant is unique - all re-purposed decorations and some very interesting decor. The serving staff was attentive and friendly I would recommend this restaurantl

My wife had done a bit of research before we arrived in Bloomington, so popped in for breakfast while staying at the nearby Biddle hotel for a Sherlock Holmes conference on the IU campus. Excellent meal with all farm to table local ingredients, right down to the house made ketchup, which I didn't actually use as the potatoes were perfectly... More

Heard good things about this place but was disappointed. Some of the food came cold, under seasoned or just plain bad. Our table ordered apps. The hummus was really terrible, the crispy potatoes cold and potato soup so spicy as to be Inedible. The artisan bread and homemade butter were delish as were the garlic fries. Two people ordered pork... More

Since our daughter is new to Bloomington, we are excited to try the diverse and ethnic restaurant the city has to offer. Last night (Sunday Sous Chef Choice night) we took her and six hungry college students for dinner. To start, our server Alyssa was pleasant, accommodating to my allergy and very attentive. She made some suggestions for is to... More

I went to Farm with friends and I loved this place. You will find unique yet amazing food on this menu. Just to give a couple of examples: espresso rubbed bison burger, fried green tomato vegetarian sandwich, local fresh black peppered bacon, and their special that night was a fish fry! The menu has a little of everything I ordered... More

Enjoyed a quaint Saturday brunch with my wife. The staff have excellent attitudes and balance a refined, yet approachable atmosphere. Our food selections were fresh, locally grown, and excellent. My one point of improvement would be to be more aware of the ingredients by staff. After pointedly turning down a couple of suggestions due to a particular dislike of one... More
