In its funky and eclectic restaurant, filled with rusty decor and a lime green ceiling, Farmer Brown is a soulful eatery with modern flair. Sensational starters, like the sweet potato steak fries with spiced salt and lemon aioli and the fried shrimp and cheesy grits bites, speak to Farmerbrowns southern comfort food aesthetic. Popular entrees include the crispy cornmeal catfish platter candied yams, blue lake beans, pickled onions & sauce gribiche, the classic barbecue baby back ribs plate with pickled veggies and the jumbo blackened prawns and stoneground grits. An amazing brunch is served at Farmer Brown, with such items as angel biscuits with mushroom gravy and crispy fried chicken and waffles delighting diners every weekend.



The southern specialties extend into the drinks menu, where the front porch iced tea with flavors of bourbon, seasonal fruit,housemade ginger nectar, fresh brewed tea, served in a mason jar, is a refreshing drink to enjoy with your meal.

Went in and they didn't have our reservation for 8 people on New Years Eve. They made room! The food and drinks were fantastic and the service was exceptional. THANK YOU!

Had NYE dinner hear on Sunday night. We started with the fried okra/shrimp appetizer. Amazing. Okra cooked perfectly. Large shrimp. Perfect breading. Then moved on to Fried Chicken and Waffles. We added Maple syrup (passed on the sorghum syrup...) and it was fantastic. Chicken coated perfectly, meat ( breast and wing) tender and moist. When we forked both the syrup soaked waffle and the chicken in a single bite it was some kinda heaven! Too stuffed for their legendary pecan pie...Next time!

I still love farmerbrown, but I have to admit it seems to have lost a bit of its pizzazz. While the presentation was absolutely stunning, the taste didn't come up to their old down-home goodness. Not that anything was bad, it is just their own high bar that was set early on. I do see improvement from about a year ago, but I hope the chef really digs in and spices up the flavors. The options are great and they have kept the comfort food vibe alive. This used to be one of my absolute favorite spots in town, and I know they can get back there.

If you are hoping to have good southern food this is definitely not the place. The service was friendly but the food was simply mediocre, very mediocre.

The food was really good. However, as someone with a southern background, it is outrageous to see anything with grits being sold for $23. Grits are supposed to be an affordable good. So this place is good for a treat but it is definitely expensive for many of the dishes.

Enjoyed the jambalaya and the chicken and waffles. Not a place for dessert, but its a very nice pre-concert meal if you're going to the Warfield.
