We are never disappointed with ANYTHING we have at the Farm! Great atmosphere, service is great, food is always phenomenal! We are spoiled by this place & find it impossible to go elsewhere for a meal! Just steps away from the downtown square & IU's campus. Don't pass this one up!

Eclectic menu with a strong emphasis on local sourcing, into the "locavore" trend but not over the top or pretentious about it. Menu features interesting and memorable twists on a reasonably broad selection of items. This was a "business" dinner with two IU faculty members both of whom frequent the place and rank it as a favorite. They aren't wrong.... More

The food is tasty but a price. If you don't like to dress up and go out for a fancy meal but you want the expense and "that kind of food" then this is your place. I had halibut grilled $28 no sides. Our waitress was fabulous and even offered a discount if we ordered an appetizer, so that became... More

Well. I have been to the place more than once. I did not choose by but some friends or business customers pick that place once in a while. Food there is overpriced, staff is arrogant and food is very very mediocre. Everytime I asked about certain dished due to food allergies I was mistreated by the waiters, they were so... More

My wife and I try to eat here every time we come to Bloomington and are never disappointed. I frequently order the specials and they have great cocktails. I've eaten several things for the first time by eating the specials. First place I ever had cow tongue, lake smelt, hen-of-the-woods mushrooms and probably a few things I can't think of... More

Had a business breakfast this morning at Farm, and it was, as usual, delicious. Our waitress had a fun personality, and was attentive and quick to meet our needs. We ordered 3 different meals and they were all great. The ambience is fun and I highly recommend going to the Root Cellar in the evenings for some of their fun... More

I have been going to FARM for 6 years or more, and always enjoy the food. Chef Orr puts together a great menu of seasonal favorites, and their menus for special occasions are amazing as well. I would always suggest the Garlic Fries, they are a favorite of my wife and I. They also have an incredible breakfast, and the... More

Go for the food. It is fresh, local, and creatively prepared. The prices at first seem a bit high, until you take your first bite and realize what went into creating the dish. Unfortunately, our service was lacking. We specifically asked the server to go tell the chef about an allergy at our table. We asked for them to keep... More

Casual upbeat menu is highlighted by innovative use of ingredients. Service is usually good but occasionally varies with an individual server. The French fries are my daughters favorite.
