Perfect lunch, near Univ of M

Party of four, lunch outside on the patio. Nicely appointed, and the patio has great landscaping. Great grilled vegetables, pork, open faced patty melt. Very friendly service

We went to The Farmer in hopes of finding a new "favorite" restaurant - and we did! We both ordered red snapper which was delicious! I had brussel sprouts which were a bit tough, but my husband ordered broccoli which was great! We had Key Lime Pie for dessert. It's one of our favorites and we order it whenever we... More

I am sure The Farmer has other dishes just as good, but this is my all time favorite Bahn-Mi sandwich! So fresh tasting. And don't forget a side of brussel sprouts if they have them.

Once we found the restaurant, actually signed The Farmer, we enjoyed excellent service in a semi-private room. From the fish to the steak everyone enjoyed their meals. A creative menu and good wine list.

We loved this place. My husband and I went here for lunch on my birthday. We waited for a bit but wandered around the antique shop for a bit and they have a nice little waiting area for people. Our server Dale was awesome. He was very busy that day but was friendly and never kept up waiting. I had... More

We've been planning to try The Farmer for a while. Our first visit won't be our last. The food was delicious, and we liked the straightforward wine choices and relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely come back.

A cop recommended this restaurant to me. Since I was traveling alone, I ordered takeout. The food was fantastic and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more considerate. If I ever return to Memphis, I will put the Elegant Farmer at the top of my list of things to do.

Have been to the Farmer probably 10 times. Mac was not there tonight. Service was very slow, food was just okay. Took 15 minutes to get salad dressing and water refill. Maybe we should have sat inside! Will be a while before I return, many other good places with better service. Sorry!!

On a recent trip to Memphis, my husband and I had spent the day sightseeing on a rainy Friday. Having missed lunch, we were hungry and looking for something besides the normal BBQ. We found The Elegant Farmer but were surprised to find the parking lot empty. Confused because TA showed it as open, we approached the door. The owner... More
