Great food friendly staff

We had a great lunch. Casual atmosphere but just a little noisy with bad acoustics. Other than the noise it was wonderful. Everything is tasty and beautifully plated. I had a chicken tostada and my wife had the roasted pork. Both were excellent. The waitress was helpful and the service was prompt.

Side salad with ranch. I had the salmon patties with greens and Mac n cheese to die for. Top it off cocoanut cake. All very... More

Great lunch! Get there early or make reservations. Arrived on a Monday at 11:15 and by 11:30 there was no seating available and a number of folks had made reservations. Where does that happen for lunch in Memphis. I had the elegant salad with the addition of some delicious tender slices of roasted chicken. The greens were delicious with a... More

I come here as often as I can I use it as a place to take friends on lunch dates. The food is always consistently good so, it makes for hanging out with friends a great experience, as I never have to worry about food or service quality because there always a delight.

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.
