I never heard of Farm Bar & Grille, but used Open Table to find a restaurant for Mother's Day. Food was great, huge drink menu and terrific menu. Can't wait to go back and try it for dinner. Definitely recommend.

The food at The Farm is consistently good. Is it amazing? Would you drive 15 or more miles to eat there? Answers: No and Probably not. However the service is always excellent and the ambiance is great. I think The Farm will always be 3 out of 5 stars. I did notice this time around, I ordered two Moscow Mules and my wife a Stella Artois (bottle) the kids had soda and a Shirley Temple with our dinner...the bill was $120...with tip I’m at $140+...I think that is a little steep when compared to the 99 or Applebee TGIF, Chili’s etc. Maybe it’s simply the fact food and drink is getting more expensive!

The greeting was very unfriendly with a hostess who had her mask well below her nose and when I thanked her for bringing us to the table she said ... yep. The table was sticky and had salt all over it scattered everywhere. Our waitress was average at best. Checked on us once during the dining experience after we received our meals. We would have ordered more drinks, but the lack of attentiveness stifled our requests. On the plus side, the food was good. It was bar food at best. Based upon what I read from the owners, I was not expecting this bar atmosphere. It was not an experience. It was bar food and a restaurant run by kids who did not seem to take interest in the overall experience of their guests. There was not a manager that we saw and one definitely did not visit our table or any tables near us. Not a great experience. I would not recommend this restaurant to friends or family and will not be going back.

Usually we enjoy the Farm. This past time was horrible. The menus were filthy and had food on them. I ordered the fajitas and it had very little steak and many onions. It was loaded with onions and little vegetables. I won’t return

I was so upset. My daughter has a gluten allergy and the staff was not educated at all. This day in age, this should be part of the training program. How do you not know what gluten free is. We felt so uncomfortable eating there, we left. Not the woman fault, it’s the Owners/Managers that should be responsible for training to offer suggestions and recommendations.

I am deeply sorry to hear about your experience here at The Farm. I am personally going to work with the staff on educating them on all the allergies and making sure they can provide the proper information to the guest. We will also look into making a gluten free menu to cater to those with a gluten allergy. I hope you do try us again in the future so we can give you the proper experience you deserve!

We were a group of 7. Had two tables in a side room but could not put tables together, ok. Get that. But we had to order drinks far in advanced because it took FOREVER to get them. We thought about getting apps, but we figured they would come with dinner as the service was so bad. I supposed you could say we had a waitress, I guess. Because we never saw her. And its not like she was busy, the place was empty! Food came out very good. Only saving grace. But we wont be back.

I am deeply sorry to hear that your experience here at the farm was not up to your standards. The CDC has now updated their guidelines so that we can now have 10 people per table. Covid has been extremely difficult in the restaurant industry with having to keep parties at least 6ft apart. I am also terribly upset to hear that your service was not top notch. I would like to personally hear more about this. If you could reach out to me at 603-641-3276 that would be great my name is Justin.

Everything we ordered was delicious. I would rate them above average. We tried a lot of different items. For an appetizer we had coconut shrimp. For two it was a generous portion of 6 very large shrimps. For dinner, we ordered fish taco’s shrimp lettuce wraps. Everything was delicious! The table were spaced out for social distancing. We will return again.

We went to there a few weeks ago on a Sat night. We sat on the restaurant side, where the tables were spaced apart. Waitress was great and quick taking drink and food orders, and making recommendations. Stuffed jalapeño poppers were excellent - fresh and delicious! Entrees were very good as well. We will definitely go back there again soon!

The waiter was continuously wearing his mask under his nose or chin. The food tasted Ok, aside from the cheese dip that came with the pretzels which was not good. None of the food arrived hot. We sat on the patio and the only lighting was string lighting along the outer walls. We had to use our flashlight to calculate the bill. We would not return. Too many other places in Manchester to try.

The server was phenomenal but the bartender didn’t like something one of my friends said that was political, yet non-partisan, so she deliberately served her a cocktail without alcohol. Completely immature, so we left.

The service, drinks and food were awesome. We reserved an outside table so we sat in front on the sidewalk. It was very loud with the traffic and made conversations difficult. This is not the restaurants fault. COVID has forced the alternative seating. We will definitely go back when when social distancing is no longer a necessity.

The outdoor seating area has 9 or ten nicely spaced tables and it is the perfect place for a warm summer day and it's not noisy at all. The staff was very friendly and the burgers were perfectly done to our liking (medium rare). We will eat there again!

Experience of food and service was outstanding. We plan to go back. I wish the set up was different with tables flipped over due to the limit of patrons in the restaurant. We thought when we were walking by that they were closed.

Maybe if they just marked the tables differently.

Met old friends here and waitress was so patient with us as we took a long time to place orders. Drinks were cold and fresh and waitress was great with recommendations for draft beer. Food was great. The fried pickles were delicious, the buffalo chicken cobb salads enormous and Walking-In-Memphis burger and fajitas were big hits. Great social distancing and not loud; we ate inside but outdoor patio seating also available. Highly recommend!

My husband and I were excited to get out post Covid in an outdoor area. We chose the farm because we like their patio! We were seated promptly, the staff was polite. The service was extremely slow, painfully slow. We reminded ourself that the business has been closed for a while and to offer them grace. We ordered, save nothing of our server for at least 30 min. Another server brought out our food. The appetizer was completely forgotten altogether. When the main course arrived it was luke warm at most. My sandwich bun had been sitting so long it had completely disintegrated. The waitress did bring me a new bun. We then waited another 20 minutes for the check to be delivered to the table. Would not return based on food quality and service.

First, you should understand what I am about to say applies to a cool evening when only outdoor seating was allowed because of COVID-19..

7PM reservation ended up being about an 8PM seating. They said many parties take longer than their 1-hour reservation and that they were behind in seating.

They have a fairly nice outdoor patio in the back. We were offered to sit at one of the few front sidewalk seats but we opted to wait for the nicer ambiance on the patio. We could have been seated 30-45 minutes sooner had we opted for that. But, we would have been next to a noisy city street with a cold breeze. We observed at least two other parties opting for the same.

Drinks, including beer and cocktails from the drink menu, were served in small plastic cups (maybe 8 or 10 ounces) which made the drink value seem poor.

The food was good.

Service seemed rushed because we learned they were closing at 8:00. Unfortunately we were not even the last party to be seated so I suspect the crew had a late night.
