Not as good as they used to be...

We've gone there for years, the food is not as good lately. Fatty, greasy. They are also a bit rude, always have been. They won't care about this review because they are not into online...hard to order off their website. Not updated. We'll still try it, sometimes, and we'll see if it improves.

Farm Grill has been the best Greek food in the area for years and continues to live up to its reputation.

I have tried the Greek-inspired restaurants all over the Boston area and the Farm Grill, by far, is the best. Their gyro meat is different than many of the other restaurants, as their meats seem fresher and not as processed. I recently had the lamb shank for the first time and it was delicious. The meals are served more "cafeteria-style"... More

Erratic. We go for lunch because it's near an elderly family member we visit. I usually get eggs with sausage or bacon - sometimes it's properly cooked, but sometimes it's not - if the sausage is undercooked and I send it back it will invarably be dry when it comes back.

Love the greek food here. Awesome gyros on delicious pita bread. Consistently delicious! Salads and sides are good too.

Gyros sandwiches have been the subject of food reviews lately, and Farm Grill's name has surfaced several times, with superlatives attached. But I was a little disappointed in the Lamb and Beef Gyros. There was so much meat that it kept falling out of the excellent pita bread and onto the too-crowded plate (the accompanying Greek salad took up a... More

I'm not sure why I haven't written a review sooner, but I've been going The Farm Grill for years. The staff is friendly, the place is clean, but it's all about the food here. The Chicken Gyro is better than any other place you'll ever eat. Beyond that they have a number of other traditional Greek foods that you can... More

Lamb Kabob was great. The quality on the feta cheese on the salad was very good also. Rotisserie chicken was HUGE. This place moves a lot of local take out so it can look like they aren't getting your food right away but they are moving a good it of food for people that are on the way. The place... More

This is not a restaurant for a special occasion, it does the job if you need take-out Greek food. Other Greek restaurants have better presentation of the food and taste would probably be better and more authentic. Having said that, it is convenient, portions are generous.

This is cafeteria style. You order, pay, sit down and eventually someone finds you with your food. Finding a table can be a challenge at meal times. The food was good, though the wait time seemed kinda long. For what it was, it seems a bit pricey.
