Farrelly’s never disappoints. Food and ambience were terrific. The only reason I marked down service is our server was new but she tried really hard. I’m sure she will be a great server once she gets more familiar with the menu and serving order. Go early for real food and drink deals!!

Was glad to get a reservation for 4 outside at what appeared to be a highly rated newish locally owned establishment. After trying to seat us at a 2top and then trying to clumsily convert it to 4top, we had to suggest we have a cocktail while we waited for the concluding 4top patrons to depart. No waiter for drink order, took 3X as long to clear table as it did for former patrons to leave. Then drink orders finally came and saved the bad start. Waiter scarce and food order was very very late in delivery with no updates along the way. Food was outstanding. Farmers Plate with various proteins was excellent and the Mahi-mahi special was delicious. The outstanding food and drinks however will not be enough to get us to return. Our tab was $80 a head and for that you expect good service to be included. Their best service move was a worn thin apology. We suggest working on their organizational skills.

First time there and everything was wonderful! We had brunch on Saturday and was so happy that we went. Hubs and I both had chicken and waffles which was a great choice. The chicken was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The waffle was the best I have ever eaten. It was made in a waffle iron but also tasted like it had been deep fried just a little, making it like a funnel cake almost. If you go for brunch I highly recommend the chicken and waffles, you will not be disappointed!

This time we had the grill salmon and the mahi special. They were both excellent! And we had the fried oyster appetizer, which we have every time because they are so delicious!! Our favorite server, Ashley, took great care of us, as always! We love this restaurant and very thankful it is close to our house!

A GREAT new find! Just outside Hoover, this is a MUST! My wife had the Shrimp and Grits, I had the Chicken (and an Heirloom Tomato Salad.) Great food, great service. Slightly spendy, but worth it!

We like Farrelly's so much we have eaten there 3 times in the last month. The food is delicious; the servers are very conscientious. There was very good distancing between tables. We felt very safe and comfortable. But best of all, the food is very good! We tried the beef filet during restaurant week, and really hope they bring it into their regular menu. I've had the salmon and it is wonderful!

First time for Farrelly’s brunch. We’ve had dinner several times and Farrelly’s has become one of our favs. Brunch did not disappoint! Egg whites with crispy bacon, McEwen cheese grits and fluffy biscuits. Great house made peach preserves. Will definitely go again.

Our group visited Saturday evening. Most were first timers and some are picky eaters. Everyone was happy with menu selections and thoroughly enjoyed their meal. I tried the spicy tequila-based cocktail and loved it! Will definitely get It next time!! Our service was excellent - Ashley is great and made our experience very nice.

We really enjoyed the Restaurant Week 4-course menu. Excellent tomato bisque to start. Next was a great hummus app with the most amazing pita chips. Filet was cooked as order, medium. Dessert was good too. I love that they have a Sancerre on the menu. Social distancing was being practiced.

The girl at the front chose to ignore us even though there was no one other than us there. The menu given to us and the one online were very different. Very few choices. What I decided on was not on the menu. If fact, I have never seen so few options. The food was okay. Prices are also way too high for what we got. I was so hoping for a good experience.

Ryan's steak house food/service for a top tier steakhouse price. Potatoes tasted like instant potatoes. Steak was ok, not great. Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding was sour. Waitress asked if we wanted more bread and never brought any. Took 15 min to get a bourbon on the rocks. Once the order was taken it was drive by waitressing. Will not return.

I felt like this place doesn’t know what it wants to be. The decor and atmosphere is that of a more laid back, casual restaurant, but the menu is intended to be more fine dining. Menu was unique and food was ok, but a little overpriced. On the positive side, the service was very good

Great dinner with my sister. We enjoyed the black-eyed pea humus as an appetizer & the farmhouse salad with chicken. The chicken was moist & perfectly grilled. The food is always good & the atmosphere is conducive to a nice quiet dinner.
