Took my mother-in-law for lunch, she's a picky eater and loved everything! She and I split the seafood crepe (shrimp and scallops in lobster sauce) which was very good. We each had a cup of soup. I especially like the conch chowder--just a little zip, My husband had the mahi mahi sandwich which is his meal of choice. He said... More

We have wanted to try Farlows for a couple of years. There is always a lot of cars and many people there. We found out you can call ahead one hour before you want to eat and get your name on the wait list. We got seated right away when we arrived. The service was very good and the food... More

I've waited along tome to eat here and I'm sorry to say I was a little disappointed. I had the Fish Reuben sandwich which was great. A nice piece of fish but my sweet potato fries were just luke warm and the tiny bit of coleslaw sat in a puddle of liquid. Two beers came to 8.75. Nice atmosphere and... More

Baefer, after all that time awaiting your visit, we wish that your first impression had really blown you away. The sweet potato fries that come as sides are the typical fan favorites, and they should be arriving at your table piping hot. We wish we would have had the pleasure of speaking with you at the time of your visit... More

I actually told my wife I wouldn't publish anything on trip advisor about Farlow's because I was going to be selfish and not let anybody know but honesty has gotten the best of me. Best food in service for dinner in the area bar none. Salad bar is to die for.

Lunched for the first time today and the weather, surroundings and the food were all in sync. The beer cheese soup was very tasty. The salads were very good as well as the sandwiches. Our waitress was excellent too.

We've visited a couple of times and the food was good. Drinks were excellent and not over-priced as in some restaurants. Would recommend a visit.

We called ahead and sort-of had a reservation. I still don't know exactly how it worked but in a very long line of folks we were seated within minutes. Generous pours for the cocktails accompanied lobster escargot, just what you'd expect. Good house salad served with the triggerfish with crab meat; it was a little dry. Husband loved his stuffed...

Scallops were excellent but pecan crusted sea bass was the bomb!! Service was awesome as usual. Manager walks to each table making sure food is great and ordered correctly. Nice casual patio on backwater with walkway and snook lights.
