“A Great Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We looked on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try despite our distrust of new restaurants in Florence. The steak salmon and duck we ordered was cooked perfectly. The locally picked mushrooms,the pate and the Maryhill wine sample, as well as a few drafts our server brought us to try were fun, and made our surprise enjoyment of the meal even greater. I hope this restaurant is here to stay, I want to get used to the surprises.

“Small and quaint restaurant.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Formerly in the FEAST building, this "new" restaurant has taken oven. Although not on Bay street where you can either people watch or watch the river, this place has a nice ambiance to it.
The lunch menu has a great selection of appetizers as well as a lunch menu. Great daily specials, and not just one...but several along with VEGAN selections. Although I consider it pricey for lunch, food was plentiful and delicious. Portions are big. Large list of beers, sodas and other beverages to choose from. If it had a view, it would be a top contender to be the #1 restaurant in Florence.

“Homegrown Food Is A Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Homegrown is an unpretentious pub-style restaurant that delivers on what it promises. Their philosophy is to present food and beverages that are as close to local and/or far from mass produced corporate products as possible. For example, no Coke or Pepsi is served, but there are plenty of other beverage choices including an extensive selection of beer and wine. After you sample their tasty greens, freshly made dressings, original soups and entrees you realize how good food can really taste. Kudos to the chef and staff for providing a unique and memorable dining experience. We have eaten at Homegrown for both lunch and dinner. The menu is creative and reasonably priced. For example, recently we had chanterelle bean soup preceding a very generous portion of tender prime rib. The prime rib was on special for fifteen dollars and included garlic mashed Yukon Gold potatoes and a side salad. The prime rib was nicely seasoned and delivered rare just as ordered. Delicious! Dessert options were peach pie, bread pudding and brownie sundae. We split the tasty bread pudding; it was rich and yummy. For a town its size, Florence has more than its share of unique and creative eateries. Many have moved from the typical coastal fried fare of fish and chips and hamburger and fries to more creative and healthy options. Homegrown is one of the best.

“Yummy, Stellar Service, Fresh, Organic, Local”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Homegrown fills a big need in Florence for freshly prepared organic, sustainable food that is gourmet quality. Plus the folks who own and operate this cute little place feel as though they really are your family: friendly and unpretentious, quietly determined to make your dining experience a real pleasure. When I told the gentleman who came to the table that I was vegetarian and what did he recommend, he brought the chef to our table. She asked me what I liked and she rustled up a pasta with greens. Delicious. Plus they have a home made veggie burger on the menu. And the beer selection was a delight. They even offer a beer flight for tasting. When I didn't know what a particular ale was like, the owner brought me a tiny beer glass sampler. My husband got the fish and chips--big chunks of tuna perfectly fried with a light batter. He declared he'd be returning for more and only two other Florence restaurants get this accolade from him. On top of everything, there was musical entertainment. All this for a reasonable price. My pasta was $13. So get off Bay Street for a welcome blast of fresh and fun. You'll be glad you did.

“Hidden gem !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Fantastic! The environment is warm and friendly. Service was wonderful. The restaurant was very accommodating to my children with dairy and nut allergies. They had homemade chicken nuggets, fries and fresh homemade ketchup. Best I have ever tried. My husband and I had their burger- fresh, came with pickled onions and sautéed peppers. The flavor was great! If your in the area- I highly recommend this little hidden gem.
