Three of us had a delicious dinner on Thursday evening. We tried the tomato and peach salad with feta based on our server’s recommendation. It was a delicious combination of sweet and salty and we all enjoyed...even our “picky” eater!! My husband had a duck entree. It was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. I enjoyed the paneed chicken. It was juicy and very tasty. Farrelly’s is a great value and a gem right here in our backyard!!

Bread and butter served.Fried tomatoes for appetizer were very tasty, could’ve made a meal out of them. What are the prime rib which came with potatoes and broccolini. Serving was very large and ate it for two additional meals.

Very disappointed in our dinner at this restaurant. I follow them on Instagram and always looks so good. What I wanted to order they were out and it was only 7pm And fresh catch salmon ...not grouper or something that’s really considered a fresh catch
My husbands flank steak was tough. The free dessert for my birthday our waiter suggested ended up charging us for it. My husband didn’t notice til we were gone,
It was not at all what I was hoping for. Menu limited. Drinks not the greatest for the price

We ran into a friend at the bar last night and changed our reservation to add our guest to our evening. You were not quite as busy as usual and our evening was perfect! Visited without rushing and enjoyed a lovely evening. The food was delicious (as always) and the service was flawless. Thank you!!

The hangar steak had a great flavor and tender! The chicken with mashed potatoes and spinach impressed my guest. The bread base of the pudding had a great flavor then the white chocolate added the sweet, the cranberries added a bit of tart, definitely have it again.
Friendly service from our greeting at the door to the table.

We were so pleased with the nice booth seating we got for our party of 6. This booth even came with a nice curtain just in case the restaurant got too loud, which it did not. Our waitress was EXCELLENT. Her recommendations were on point, and she kept all of our glasses filled all night. We had a slight hiccup when our food arrived to the table, as one of our friend's steak slipped off the plate as they handed it to him. Our waitress wasted no time in getting him a replacement steak that made it to the table in no time. I can't wait to come back and try the brunch! This place is a MUST-TRY in Hoover!

Note: Brunch service.
Atmosphere was great, location is fantastic for Hoover residents. This was the second day of brunch service so i understand that there can be issues with coordination and slowness, but waiting 75 minutes for food when tables who sat after us were getting food before us was insane. The food was good, but the server never apologized for the wait for our food and didn't check on us often during the time we were waiting. I hate that we had a bad experience because this could have been a great local spot for brunches and dinners.

Brunch is delicious at Farrelly's and I am so sorry you dined on our second day of service and suffered a long wait for your food. Unfortunately, doing something new requires growing pains. The kitchen learned from the experience that day and thankfully, everything was much smoother this weekend. I hope you'll come back and try us again😊.

Farrelly's did such a great job with their inaugural brunch weekend. The only thing we encountered that wasn't ideal was the wait time for our food it was about an hour and ten minutes from our 12:00 reservation but that gave us time to enjoy the Nutty Irishman Coffee and Bloody Mary as our pre-brunch drinks and listen to the live music (a great touch for Sunday!) I ordered the Chicken and Waffles with my Gravy on the Side and was very pleased by the ample serving size (I shared with my husband) and we both agree that for his dish the biscuits and gravy had the kitchen not been hustling the flavors were amazing! The biscuit was just a touch over baked. Regardless of the few challenges to our visit our Server was amazing and the atmosphere was fun and we will definitely be coming back again to try it out in the near future. For an opening weekend of unexpected success Brunch was awesome! Can't wait to see what they do with it in the future. Much needed for the Hoover area!

We had a reservation for brunch at 11:45 and were seated immediately. We ordered fairly quick, but after waiting for more than 30 minutes we noticed no one around us had food. Not a good sign. I asked the waiter how much longer we would have to wait and he responded that they were not expecting such a large crowd. He stated that they had reservations for 200. If you have the reservations how are you not expecting a crowd? You know exactly how many people are showing up! It took over an hour to get bacon, grits and potatoes. The grits were in solid form, not creamy at all. Bacon was chewy. Potatoes were the only thing that was hot. I felt like I wasted half of my afternoon for very below average food. The waiter did say he wouldn’t charge us for the one glass of orange juice ordered, but after we paid the bill we noticed it was still on the ticket. A free glass of $3 orange juice still wouldn’t make my experience any better.

Spring roll app and chicken piccata were very good. Meatloaf over bean mash was creative and tasty but sauce was too strong for my taste. Shrimp and grits were over seasoned and bitter. Pork shank was salty but remainder of dish was good. Skipped deserts but looked very good.

Great addition to Hoover! Food and service impeccable. Highly recommend the Fried Okra & Banana Peppers, the Pork Egg Rolls and the Deviled Eggs as appetizers. I had the Pork Shanks entree, which is to die for. It’s a rich dish with collards and Mac & cheese as sides, but totally worth it. Our server was out-going and knowledgeable. We truly enjoyed the ambiance and pleased with restaurant overall. It will be a new fave for sure!

Really wanted to like this restaurant, so glad to have more upscale restaurants in Hoover. That being said, $100 for two people is high in my opinion based on the portion and quality of the food. The wine pours were overpriced for the pour size. Pricing not comparable to other area restaurants. The service was very good!

This was our first visit to Farrelly's and we enjoyed our experience!

We were seated within 10 minutes of arriving of our reservation time. The dining area is open and nicely decorated with a fireplace.

My wife ordered the Blue Salad and I had the Hanger Steak. We both enjoyed our meals.

We also order the brownie for dessert and it was wonderful.

I would recommend Farrelly's for a nice date night outing.

Food was really good, atmosphere was fun, and service was solid. Just a little pricey to visit often. Bigger group? See if you can get the secluded booth.
