“Now open for dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Great review below from Karen H. I hope everyone realizes by now that this is a different restaurant than The Farmer's Kitchen which previously occupied the same building. New owners Larry and Cynthia Walker are working hard to earn your business and, in my opinion, are doing very well at it. Their remodeling has really opened up the dining area. It feels more spacious and inviting. Still small town and homey, with just a touch of Cynthia's southern California influence. The menu has many recognizable items but they are prepared with a contemporary flair. And the specials are, well ................special.. Today they got up early to prepare a very tasty curry to be served over couscous. My wife tried it (I got to taste it) and it was terrific. The restaurant is now open for dinner Thursday thru Saturday and they strongly recommend reservations. I will agree with Karen H. that the service is remarkable. This place is fun and inviting, from the time you enter the building to the time you leave. One good example of their approach to life is Larry's poster of a Hunter S. Thompson quote hanging in the bar. We've been there for lunch, and we'll be back for dinner. Enjoy.

“new restaurant, old location, terrific food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Once Farmer's Kitchen closed, nearly everyone in Hermiston anxiously awaited the opening of Walker's Farm Kitchen. So worth the wait! Owner Larry Walker and his wife have created a fabulous menu of old standards and new tastes. Only open for lunch at this time -- Tuesday-Saturday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. -- the food was excellent. I had their Reuben on marble rye, yummy! The side salad was the perfect size and had a variety of lettuces along with homemade croutons and grape tomatoes. The ranch pesto dressing was so good! Great pesto flavor. The atmosphere has changed a bit from the Farmer's Kitchen, but not in a bad way. It looks fabulous. One of the best parts was the service. We were served quickly -- which was novel because the Farmer's Kitchen was notoriously slow -- and efficiently. Larry came to our table a couple of times to check on us, which was terrific. All-in-all, a great dining experience. Can't wait for their dinner service to start!

“This Place is CLOSED”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were going to check it out but learned they are no longer in business. One less place to eat in Hermiston- too bad as we heard it was very good. Oh well, check out La Palma instead!

“Food is fine, price is sky high, servers are snotty except to their special customers.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Food was great, no problem there but the price was 40 % more than it should have been. Service was a bit slow but the attitude seemed to be that they were doing you a real favor to wait on you. Servers seemed to be very selective about who they were friendly and personable with, also a bit slow at 5 pm when they weren't busy.

“Don't pass this up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Expect a wait but don't get impatient it's well worth it! Very friendly staff and the food is just as good. Dinner started with their home-made focaccia bread with oil and balsamic then I had pasta with salmon and my boyfriend had bbq ribs and Terminal Gravity's ESG on tap. Toward the end of our meal the chef came and asked how everything was. After being completely stuffed our waitress willingly took our left overs and put them in a to-go box for us...so thoughtful! I felt at home in this house turned charismatic food haven, highly recommended.
