Nice old building converted into a cool restaurant. Food was good and plenty of it and the service was good. Beer choice was also very good. In the area then worth a visit.

The food at Farmers Union is not just delicious, but an experience. I had a salad. Boring, right? Not here. Not even close. It was dressed up and still remained healthy: Spanish almonds, dates, avocados, grilled chicken ... an amazing combination of sweet and salty...More

The event coordinator was excellent. The food was very good. The private room was also great. The only negative comment - the acoustics made hearing difficult. Have eaten here several other times in small groups and have never been disappointed.

I was undecided between the steak and the pork chops. I wanted the steak but preferred the sides of mashed potatoes and veggies from the pork chops. The server was kind enough to offer to switch the meat. It was delicious!
