“Pleasant outdoor eating”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

This is a great spot where you can sit either inside or outside. On the lanai, there are vines covering the lattice overhead and ceiling fans so the temperature was lovely. Great choices on the menu plus daily specials. Service was efficient and very pleasant. Turkey club was great and came on toasted whole wheat as requested. You get a choice of sides with the sandwiches - French fries, sweet potato fries (awesome wedges!), fresh fruit, or coleslaw. St. Croix crab sandwich came on a croissant and was loaded with white crab meat. The cranberry chicken salad was fabulous! Two scoops of chicken salad served on greens with pecans and fresh fruit...ask for the raspberry vinegrette. One special was St. Croissant crab salad with berries, served in a cinnamon tortilla bowl. It was great! All in all a wonderful lunch for a reasonable amount of money.

“don't go there hungry”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We both had fish plus salad and fries.The salad looked as if it had been swept from the floor, the fish was nice but portion small, the broccoli was cold and there must have been a shortage of french fries as my wife had ten and I had even less.
Left there hungry!.
If I had been back in UK I would not have paid the bill and would have needed an explanation.

Never again!

This certainly doesn't sound like a satisfying experience, Anthony, and it also sounds extremely unlike us! We extend our sincerest apologies, and we truly hope you'll give us another chance to deliver the sort of experience that is the norm for us -- a five star one. Again, our apologies for any issues with portion size.

Sincerely,
Laurie and Keith, Owners

This was our second visit & we were not disappointed. Husband had seafood combo of shrimp, scallops & fish in a cuban sauce. I ate cranberry chicken sandwich and cuban soup. Great lunch menu & value.

“Very Good”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Decided to try Farlow's after a 4 year absence. Their menu has changed.
Many healthy options. The salad was ok, but the Mediterranean grouper was very good. The sweet potato was good also. The other meal was a steak and mashed potatoes. It was tasty. Had the turtle pie for dessert. Even though it was not homemade, it was very good. The only drawback was the one stall in the ladies room. I was told they plan to expand in a year and fix that problem. This restaurant is very noisy. Not for quiet romance.

“A plate of melted yellow cheese”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I ordered the Kentucky Brown which was a BIG mistake. It was a plate of yellow melted cheese over bread, a piece of turkey, one tomato slice and no bacon. Instead of a white sauce it was a melted cheese and cheese and more cheese. It was terrible. Ordering this was to bring back so many wonderful memories but I was swimming in yellow cheese. The others enjoyed their meal.

We're terribly sorry to hear that you weren't a fan of our Kentucky Brown. We generally get great feedback about it, so we'll certainly pass this along to the kitchen. We can only hope you'll come in and try another item or two from our menu -- we're certain we can impress you and earn an updated review! We look forward to welcoming you back.
