“Ambiance, Service, Food Quality....ALL wonderful! Definitely worth the money!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Visited here with my husband and his parents last evening. It was a lovely restaurant with outdoor seating along the intercoastal waterway. They have a beautiful herb garden along the entrance path that they use in many of their dishes! Awesome! There was a musician playing in the courtyard and the weather was fantastic. Our server was prompt and helpful and the bussing staff were impeccable! They certainly don't like dirty dishes on your table! They were not intrusive at all but boy did they keep things moving! We ordered the tower appetizer to share among us. The calamari was tender and perfectly breaded and the coconut shrimp was large, plump and perfectly fried. The dipping sause for the shrimp is really tasty too.

My father in law ordered the scallop special. WoW...huge sea scallops perfectly broiled, sweet and smothered in an asiago sauce....yep...cheese with seafood and it was good!

My mother in law had the stuffed flounder and it looked perfectly cooked. She added the fried tomatoes and seemed pleased with them too.

My husband had the fresh catch (a fish I had never heard of before) and it was perfectly pan fried to a golden brown.

I ordered the blackened tuna and it was perfectly seared and served medium rare.

We all had the corn pudding as a side and it served as a lovely end to the meal instead of a dessert.

Prices are not low here but they are not more than the value you receive. I would definitely recommend this for a special night out with your loved one(s) to experience a beautiful evening.

Way to go Farlows!

“Overpriced and Not very good. Will Not Go Back Again.”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Prime Rib had excessive fat on it and barely no meat. Sunrise Shrimp Fettucine was tastey but the shrimp were not fresh and very soggy and tasteless. Meals were not worth the money and we would never go back to Farlows on the Water.

“Nice restaurant for good food and entertainment”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a great restaurant. Lots of tropical food selections on the menu and usually good live entertainment (music). Sometimes a little crowded so go early. Great place to relax with friends

“Very good but pricey”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We were there last month, and dined outside in front of the steel drums. The food was very good, but pricey. Loved the music and atmosphere.
