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 had dinner outside to celebrate a birthday. The atmosphere was wonderful, and our service was even better. Julian did an amazing job taking care of us. The food was beautiful and well prepared.

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.

Farrelly’s is a gem!!! This was my 3rd (and by far) BEST visit because I got to share it with out of town friends who don’t think of Hoover as a fine dining destination. Incredible!

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.

Small section on the menu and not to mention the little wine list. Probably won’t go back. We were not offered the option of having dessert and we arrived 40 minutes early for our reservations. Got seated quickly.

On our trip to Birmingham last weekend, we ate at farrelly’s while staying at Ross Bridge. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was even better. We sat outside and listened to a great playlist!
The paneed chicken was fantastic- would highly recommend!
We had a great evening, everything was wonderful!

We love this restaurant and are so lucky that it is 5 mins from our house. George and Eileen do a wonderful job making you feel welcome and they sincerely and genuinely appreciate all patrons. Everything we have eaten has been very good. This visit we were 4 couples that had not seen each other since the Covid outbreak (mid-March). We had the perfect table with plenty of room between us yet close enough to talk and visit. Most of us selected the "Restaurant Week" special which featured a filet or crab cake. Two had the grilled salmon and they said it was great. Everyone loved what they had. And our favorite server, Ashley, took great care of us (as always)! They also have a great wine list and we also appreciate being able to take our own wine and pay a nominal corkage fee.

We went with friends to the wine tasting on Aug 11th. It was moved inside because of potential rain. We had a great time. Everyone enjoyed the wine selections and the cheese and fruit hors d'oeuvres. Additionally, we ordered the fried oysters appetizer and the charcuterie board appetizer, which we really enjoyed. Everyone was spaced out, servers were wearing masks and we felt very safe and comfortable. It was a great evening! Thank you Elaine & George! We love Farrelly's and glad it's close by!
