Came at 7 on a Saturday night. Would not recommend this since we waited 90 minutes for a table. The restauramt doesn't take reservations and because it is so popular, you can expect to wait a long time for a table. The food was terrific and we enjoyed the food, but would go on another day or at another time.

Hi Kathleen,

Thanks for your "terrific" review! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our food, but apologize if the restaurant was a little crowded. We do get very busy on weekends, and sometimes the wait can get a little long. We do accept call ahead seating 30 minutes prior to your arrival to help with the wait time in the future. We're happy to hear this won't keep you from visiting again though, and look forward to seeing you!

Take care,
Laurie and Keith, Owners

When friends visit me in Englewood, FL I always take them to Farlows and they and I have never been disappointed. The food is reasonably priced and always good. They specialize in Carribean entrees but have an overall good selection.

The restaurant was quite good. It caters to the older Florida crowd with some pretty good early bird specials (4pm - 5pm). The place was packed and the service was quite good. The food was about average. The atmosphere was nice.
