Amazing service for my family from server Dean. Amazing food. Best in Memphis, hands down! I had the Sloppy Joe- Simply knocked my socks off.

We had seen this place reviewed on Food Network and decided to check it out while driving through Memphis. Boy, am I glad we did! Although we didn't have reservations, the host invited us to dine in an unreserved area off the main dining room. Well the room filled quickly and here's why: the food is fresh and tasty; the...

We were in town for the weekend to run a half marathon near Memphis. We stopped here as it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. It was probably one of the best meals we've ever had. Delicious and decadent. We stopped for lunch, and split several sides, as we wanted to try several things. We had the grilled asparagus... More

A friend recently treated me to lunch at The Farmer and it was just wonderful. I ordered the vegetable plate, which is one of their best sellers at lunch time. This is another time that I am reminded how wonderful it is to live in the South. Macaroni and Cheese is a choice on the "vegetable" plate and it was... More

Webpage by Google says they are open 11am to 10pm. Showed up at 2:35pm and was told kitchen is closed between 2:30 and 5:30. People are sitting and in the middle of meals. Was turned away...

Absolutely loved this little gem. I'm from the fast paced North East and came to Memphis on a business trip. I typically like to find resturants before I travel so I'm not relying on the hotel staff to direct me. The place was dimly lit and cozy. If you're looking for a dime a dozen type place this is not... More

We have been searching for our "date night" restaurant and found it yesterday. The Elegant Farmer provided us with everything we were looking for; great service, great atmosphere and delicious food. Yesterday, I decided to go with a friend and try the lunch menu. We arrived at the restaurant and were greeted at the door by the owner who was... More

This was pretty good I didn't get what I wanted through no fault of theirs. It is close between the tables and the service wasn't great so I can't give this a better review. I love the setting in the shop surrounded by all the antiques and silver.
