Really needs no advertising, word of mouth keeps them busy.

In town to catch a show, and had a wonderful meal at the Bachelor Farmer. Fresh approach to the menu and wine offering. Four of us shared an appetizer, two "toasts", a side, and two desserts. The groaning board in particular was a favorite. It was also the first time we had seen them divide nice bottles of wine by... More

We were treated to a meal at The Bachelor Farmer, and ended up feeling bad for our host having to spend so much money for so little food. The atmosphere is reminiscent of farm country, appropriately. The food is of high quality, much of it organic, but one would not complain of leaving feeling over-fed! We ordered an appetizer of... More

Awesome food and service. We had the foie gras, beef tartare and the wild rice to begin with. Fried chicken was amazing...not as heavy as it sounds. Lamb and duck were also ordered. Topped off by the Apple Tart (order in advance!).

Seated at reservation time. Good atmosphere, not to loud even though tables are close together. Great Service, staff was knowledgeable about menu options. Food was very good. Decent drink/wine options. A pricey evening if you want to taste an assortment of what's on the menu.

Group of 8 for a friend's birthday last night. All of the staff was exceptional. Our server, DJ, was very knowledgable about the food. The pork chops are only served on Mondays, and the consensus at our table was that they were the best- one friend literally cried on her first bite. We tried all of the toasts - don't... More

Great spot in the heart of downtown Minneapolis! Went in on a snowy night in Mid December and the service and drinks were great! The bartenders were patient and accommodating as the large group of us took for ever to order and then needed to sample different drinks before making decisions. They handled us with professionalism and patience. Will definately... More

Both the food and the service are excellent (Thank you Joel!). We visited on a Monday night when they have the pork chop available from the pig that is butchered on Friday and then brined all weekend. The desserts blew me away...they make their own marshmallows!

Fantastic, non-traditional food. Everything was amazing. The groaning board was a real treat. I would have never, ordinarily, ordered a single thing from the groaning board, but it was superb. Fun to share! The poached egg and breaded pheasant were both amazing. Very unique restaurant that is excellent. Go for it.
