While on vacation in Fairmont our group (6 people) decided to have a few drinks at the Farside Inn. Wow, what a mistake that was. From the moment we walked in, we received cold and uncaring service from Cindy. Apparently, she was the only person working in the entire bar/restaurant. Cindy has very strict rules that customers have to follow, but she doesn't inform people what these rules are. If you don't follow her rules, you will be insulted and told to leave. Twice I actually had to clear the table of glasses and dishes myself. Seriously, in all of my adult life, Cindy was the worst and most disrespectful server I have ever experienced. I also noticed that she treated the locals much nicer than the tourist that were there that night, which makes sense I guess.
I will probably never be in that part of the world again, but I would never recommend that anyone visit this place.

We were looking for a spot to have a snack and a beverage. The Farside is one of few options in Fairmont HS without going to the resort. The appetizer - shrimp - was typical breaded, deep fried shrimp with cocktail sauce. The only two local beers on draught were good. The final tab was as much as a dinner elsewhere. Service was okay. Ambiance was far from a cozy pub.

Fun spot that was a surprise. We had hoped to try another restaurant but it was closed on Mondays, so we tried this one. Eight of us tried lots from the dinner menu, and everything was excellent pub food. The pulled pork sandwich was very popular, as was the double-patty burger and the sweet potato fries. The ribs were excellent, and the pizza was good too. Even the "minor" dishes like a salad and chili were good. The staff was very helpful, water kept filled and everything was served hot and fresh. If you are looking for nothing fancy and some good food while just off the golf course or trail, this is a good spot.
