Lovely location on Selby near the cathedral, convenient parking lot, sunny windows, comfortable seating plan, good for conversation. Sadly the Sunday brunch was utterly BORING and absolutely not worth $17. I tried a dozen hot foods and salads, all bland. Caramel rolls and lemon bars...More

Fabulous ferns tends to draw the crowd that the other neighborhood restaurants don't want or don't fit in. I stopped in for happy and thought I would give this place another try. The bartenders where friendly, and I ordered a Bells Two hearted. The bartender...More

This was a very disappointing brunch. The food was poor quality, cold and unappealing. I filled my plate once, picked away at it, and returned to the dessert table. I quickly decided there was nothing there worth the calories. I would have preferred an Easter...More

As the menu gets smaller, this place is turning into a run-of-the-mill bar. OK for beer I guess, but the food is completely dull. Had margarita flatbread (mostly cheese, room temperature) and spinach artichoke dip which was totally tasteless - reminded me of soup out...More

I've never been impressed or disappointed with Ferns. I've been there for business lunches, evening dinners, pre-game cocktails. It's perfectly average, and sometimes that's exactly what you need.

I used to really enjoy Fern's, but I think the quality of their food has deteriorated in the last several years. If I go now, I primarily go for drinks in the bar. It is sad, because the restaurant is large and lovely, and it...More

A warm chicken dijon sandwich, exactly right on a rainy day when instead of walking to my car, I walked into Fern's for lunch. I asked for the small, more private booth for two (I was solo) so I could read while waiting for lunch....More

The meal took way longer than it should have to deliver, some kitchen catastrophe, per our waitress, but it was very good.

Great customers, great staff, great food and great atmosphere. This is exactly what a local pub/grill should be and is underlined by its popularity. If you get the chance then drop in, you will be captivated and like us will be sure to return
