Place was awesome, cool vibe and decor. Food was really good. Dessert was cold underneath and burnt way to much on a creme brulee but will definitely go back!! Want to do breakfast and lunch for sure

Our meals were nothing special. The food was okay, but nothing that would make us want to go back. It was also very expensive for what we got.

An exceptional experience where everything was catered to my liking, and special accommodation requests were met with a smile: Lindsay is my favorite server; she does a great job, and is so knowledgeable about the menu and everything the restaurant has to. offer!the bakery is also off the charts! can’t wait to go back:)

We loved our visit to Farm Society! What an awesome addition to downtown Anderson. We loved the bruschetta, salmon, bread pudding, and peanut butter pie! We can’t wait to return soon.

Service was horrible. Took 15 minutes before someone came over and took our order about 35 minutes after ordering our waiter who was also cooking came out and said they were out of crabmeat and the owner wouldn’t allow him to make any to pick something else. Took forever to get a water refill had to get someone else to get water since our waiter was to busy and got water without ice. Finally after almost an hour got our food. The salmon was cold and so dry could barely eat it. Wrong side was brought out with food they said it would be right out and was done eating before fries ever came out and was only brought one plate even though 2 of us ordered them. It’s ok though bc we couldn’t eat the fries bc their was mounds of salt on them and they looked like they literally took them from the fryer to the plate they were so greasy and were just sitting in the frying oil. They were disgusting. Not once did we get asked if we were ok or needed anything. Ate barely any of the food absolutely gross and extremely overpriced for the amount. We also tried to fried green tomatoes and couldn’t eat them. They were so bland and the tomatoes themselves were horrible. One of the worst food experiences EVER! They dropped a sauce on the floor and left it and didn’t clean it up had to walk around it not to slip in it. Staff was arguing between each other and the owner was talking about the other staff members right by our table. Could not believe how horrible this experience really was.

We are so sorry about this experience! We were clearly caught off guard and have learned a lot from that evening. Your check was entirely refunded and we beg that you come back to give us another shot. You guys were great- we loved having you here and hate that it went this way. Please accept our apology!

This is our second trip from Fort Wayne. We loved the experience the first time. Unfortunately the air conditioning was out, our avocado toast took almost 30 minutes to arrive and the service was very different than our first trip. We were so excited to go back but disappointed.

Food was very good, place was set up very nice with lots of seating. The only negative was the room temperature made the visit very uncomfortable. The staff said the a\c was just repaired that day but it did not feel that way

Definitely the best place to eat in Anderson and well worth a trip from out of town. I had the Indiana Sunrise with a coffee and it was delicious. The ambience is super cute, they have a great cocktail menu, and the staff is very friendly and attentive.

This was the first time I have visit The Farm Society. I had high hopes as I love a good farm to table restaurant. The decor was super cute, but we were not greeted when we walked in and had no idea if we were supposed to find our own seat or wait to be seated. Once seated, the service was, for the most part, prompt. It was, unfortunately, very warm inside. They said the ac wasn't keeping up and that was very apparent. I felt that the food was overpriced. We ordered the charcuterie board and it was very disappointing. The avocado toast was very good though! The cheese used on the kids' grilled cheese was like rubber. The grilled veggies were good, except there were no onions in it as advertised. I would go again to give them another chance though!

Thank you so much for visiting and reviewing our restaurant! We are excited to be launching a new menu this coming week that includes a totally revamped charcuterie board featuring Smoking Goose meats - we hope you will give it another try on your next visit! And, again, we sincerely apologize about the A/C issues. We are working to resolve them as quickly as possible but have been so appreciative of the patience and graciousness of our guests in the meantime.

Food was above average but not great. Service was exceptional but bar was not well stocked with liquors or mixers. We will try it out again

Thank you for your review and for your patronage! If I remember correctly, I believe you ordered a vodka and tonic but we didn't have tonic? We are in the process of revamping our bar and drink selection but up to this point have only stocked the ingredients for our signature cocktails - we are working toward a better selection, though, that hopefully will include your favorite mixers! Thanks for being willing to try a different drink in the meantime. We appreciate you choosing Farm Society!
