Farlow's has a great setting and atmosphere. I base the very good rating based on this fact. It was enjoyable for lunch. The food was good and the sweet potato fries I has were the best ever. Our waiter seemed tired and disinterested in service...More

We're glad the setting was perfect for you, and we appreciate the great rating. It's unfortunate our service wasn't the up to our normal standards this time around, but we hope it'll be just as exceptional as the sweet potato fries on your next visit....More

Jackee, when you stopped by, we had tables that could seat two people, not a group, which is why they were taken to be seated so quickly. We apologize if we didn't explain that when you stopped by, and we understand that you were a...More

Visited last week with another couple for lunch and had a very enjoyable meal. The owners are, you guessed it, from the Virgin Islands (husband) and the Southern U.S. (wife) with menu selections featuring both types of cuisine. Food choices range from the usual burgers...More

Six of us had a lovely dinner at Farlow's. The service was very very good. The flounder stuffed with crab was very good, as was the steak au pouf. The most impressive meal was the whole hog snapper. It is served standing on the plate...More

It's a huge compliment that you thought the hog snapper could stand on its own without the addition of any sauces. We're so happy that you and your group loved the stuffed flounder and had a wonderful time dining with us. We hope to see...More

I love the feeling & decor of this place. The Kentucky Fried Green Tomatoes are honestly the best I have ever had. They have a slight crunch and are tender on the inside. Their version of cocktail sauce is drizzled on top and is delicious....More

We're so happy you enjoyed the fried green tomatoes and how well the cocktail sauce complemented the dish. Your notes on including a cocktail sauce with the coconut shrimp is a great idea, and we think it might be a nice alternative to the tartar...More

We had a lot of people recommend Farlow's, so we tried it. We were so disappointed. Maybe we weren't drunk enough to "appreciate" it. Although the view of the water was nice, it was nothing outstanding. The prices were somewhat high, but we figured that...More
