Easter Sunday was a very nice menu and the staff was very helpful. Lunch was outstanding as everyone enjoyed their meal and I loved the crab cake benedict. Great presentation and getting walk around the gardens and shops made it even more special. This place will not disappoint.

Place was empty, seated immediately based on reservations. Waiter seemed to be a little slammed or disorganized during the initial interaction. Waited 45 minutes for food after ordering ,they forgot stuff, just not very well organized. Pretty setting but not worth the drive. Food was good but nothing special.

Our meal was delicious. The menu was extensive and creative. All of the veggies were fresh and crips. The Brussel Sprouts were the best I have had. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and made some excellent recommendations. We will certainly go back.

We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed an al fresco early dinner. The menu is unpretentious, but my mussels and my wife's shrimp and grits were both done well. Service was good but unobtrusive, allowing us to linger over a glass of albariño, and the bill was modest. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Took some friends from out of town to The Granary for lunch. It was around 1:30PM and was still very busy. George, the waiter was quick with our drinks and food. The menu was exceptional with a good variety of salads and sandwiches and lunch portion entrees. Everyone was very pleased with their food. I would highly recommend The Cranary.

We have been to the Granary before but this time was disappointing. We had out of town guests that we took here. One guest's salmon was cold and sweet potatoes were not done. Another guest ordered spaghetti upon hearing they had a new chef from Italy but it was so watery he had to partially use a spoon for the sauce.

The four of us were very pleased with all aspects of the Granary and are anxious to return. All the meals were excellent and some took a carryout box. If you are there at the appropriate meal time for biscuits, please try them; mom has found her match. My wife enjoyed the shrimp and grits and declared they were the best she had ever tasted-----and she is a southern girl. The gentleman that was our server is very good without being intrusive-----pleased us with his service.

Do yourself a favor and treat the family and/or friends to a wonderful experience.

We have been here many times, but this time, it appears they forgot us and the food had been ready to bring to our table well before it actually was. Because we had an appt and time was short, we made the best. But it was not hot and the fries were soggy. But we will give them another chance another time.

We visited The Granary for Sunday Brunch and were very disappointed in the quality of the Eggs Benedict. The bacon was tough and chewy, the eggs were tasteless and undercooked, and the hollandaise sauce had no taste of lemon at all. For a restaurant aiming for high quality food and promoting a Sunday Brunch, this was unacceptable.

I think that instead of the wait person asking if a customer wants his or her change back, the wait person should assume that the customer wants their change, and then allow the customer to decide how much of the change is going to the tip. Asking the customer puts the customer on the spot and creates a somewhat uncomfortable moment.

The food was overall good, as expected. However, the service was extremely slow. This was an unusually warm day in February and the patio was open for dining. There were 4-5 tables of diners outside (including ours) and one waitress for the entire patio, so service was noticeably slow and drinks went unfilled. The kitchen was also extremely slow, and kept sending out wrong orders to the table next to ours, despite the fact the the restaurant itself seemed pretty empty. The weather was nice, so we didn't really mind the wait, but the food itself wasn't excellent enough to make up for the slow service - so unfortunately I had to leave a less-than-ideal review.

I was really disappointed in the Granary. I had extended family in town and I normally put a lot of trust into Fearrington establishments to be very high quality (I'm even getting married at Fearrington later this year). This meal had a lot to be desired though. The service was slow, the food was subpar, we had to send back food and heard our waitress argue with us about how our fries were hot out of the fryer (they were cold at the table). Our experience here was the worst part of hosting my out of town family.

I have had great meals at the Granary before, so I'm not sure what happened. Overall, I love Fearrington Village, but I'm not sure I'll be going back to the Granary.

The place was nice and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. The whole village is beautiful and very romantic and the building was like eating at a very refined farm house. The problem was the food. We ordered the salt and pepper calamari and it was way over seasoned and oily. We also ordered the porkloin which was undercooked yet chewy, beef strip loin which was flavorless and salmon that was overcooked. The ribs were fall off the bone good and had very good tangy sweet flavor throughout. I probably won't come back for the food but maybe for a coffee break.

We went to the Granary for our Valentine's Day dinner, I had been excited about it ever since we made the reservation as we love Fearrington Village and had never been there to eat. Its hard to write about the experience, because remembering it verges on the traumatic. Its a night I want to forget, maybe in years to come we will laugh about it. Service started off well, we both ordered the burger as photos in reviews made it look phenomenal. The reviews of other dishes were mixed, and we thought - how can you go wrong with a burger? Well, we ordered medium and they came out like a black hockey pucks, completely inedible, and the buns were burnt too. Obviously they forgot them while they were on the grill but served them anyway. We managed to get by eating the fries and my side salad. The manager offered us something else but the apology was half hearted. We ordered an appetizer to try to compensate, so they brought one to share and just left it there with no silverware or any plates. When we were done eating it with our fingers (don't judge! we were starving), the server turned up with the plates but no silverware. Just a bizarre, horrible evening. We left and went to another restaurant to eat. Worst Valentine's Day ever.

My husband and I went to Fearrington Village on the Saturday before Valentine's to celebrate early. We had made reservations at The Granary earlier in the week. We had heard great things about it and that it was a less expensive alternative to the other Fearrington House restaurant. We got to The Granary early and were seated immediately. There was hardly anyone there. The ambiance is nice and staff are pleasant and attentive. The menu is small but not too small. There's a nice mix. My husband ordered the beef striploin and I had the salmon. We had deviled eggs as an appetizer. The deviled eggs were probably the best part of the meal; they were fabulous! The striploin wasn't that great. Salmon was average. The sides were okay. We just weren't that impressed with the meal after hearing others rave about it. I don't think we will be making it a point to return or recommend to friends.

My wife and I had a great brunch at The Granary. We enjoyed the crepe special which contained shredded duck & chicken, onion, gouda cheese, cherry tomatoes, leeks with a glaze sauced and two fried eggs on top. The coffee was also very good. We had not been to The Granary in a while and were very pleased.

We were shown to our table by an unsmiling hostess. Our waitress was a little brusque but efficient. The Caesar salad was unremarkable but the salmon that I ordered with it was a good portion and done to perfection. It is always a pleasure to be in Fearrington Village and that alone is worth the ride if you live a few miles away.

This would have been a wonderful visit, if we could have had a more attentive waitress. She did a great job, but had too many tables in different areas. Too much of a wait for any waitress attention. I will definitely be back, as I really liked the overall experience. I would love to be able to eat on the patio. Beautiful setting!!! Really good food! Improve the service, and this would be a top-notch experience.

The last time about 3 months ago we ate at The Granary, we were disappointed with the Service, it was slow, staff were inattentive and forgot to bring us water and bread even after we asked twice, I commented on this in a prior review. After this experience we hesitated to go back, but decided to give it one more try. We were disappointed again, service was better but this time we noted the menu had fewer options and prices had gone up, we also felt the quality of the food had declined.

The Sunday brunch is very tasty. I appreciate that it is NOT a gigantic buffet, but rather an a la carte meal with appropriately sized portions so you can have both an appetizer and a main course - and you will want to because the selections sound so good ! The service is charming, as one would expect from Fearrington.

We were looking forward to brunch at Granary, but were sadly disappointed it was what we expected. We have eaten at Farrington House and thought the quality would be the same. First off their sanitation score is 90%, which is pretty low for our standards. It was concerning and normally if we walk into a restaurant with that low score, we walk out. Since we had a reservation and we were at Farrington we gave it a try. I had the chicken salad and my husband had the salmon. Both were "Okay", and nothing great. My chicken salad had lots of mayo in it, and pieces of chicken that were ok. I did like the sweet grapes in it. My husband said his was okay, and thought the potatoes it came with were greasy. I noticed the restaurant was dirty. The shelving in the middle of the floor on the main level was SO dusty. I noticed cobwebs in the windows and the bathroom seemed dirty as well. Makes me wonder what the kitchen looked like, especially with their 90% sanitation score. We wont go back. Rather go somewhere clean and get a better value and better food.

Refined, flavorful, exciting eats at reasonable prices. Good service and quality presentation with an actual personality. Very enjoyable experience. Even with a 3 yr old and a 10 mos old. Kids menu could use a bit more of an a la carte section. If it was there, we missed it. We will return to investigate further.

It was Christmas Eve and the second team was working. The server was unfamiliar with the menu. I had a beef dish that was tough and fatty. Wine came to us served in a highball glass. We had to ask to have it poured into a wine glass. This was not our usual experience at the Granary, it's our go to restaurant, but this was time it was disappointing.

Booked a table here for Christmas Eve dinner because we have had a good experience previously, it's a beautiful place and it was convenient. I was so disappointed to walk in and find they now had a 90 health rating - normally I would turn around and walk out of a restaurant for that reason. Brunch always seems to be better here than dinner. The kitchen tends to be slow at dinner time. The food was ok but pretty expensive. I really hope they can turn things around because like another reviewer said, this was our GO to restaurant.

My husband and I had a delightful lunch here last Saturday. Our server was efficient and friendly. All staff seemed focused on good customer service. Our order was taken soon after we were seated and our food arrived hot & delicious in a timely manner. I had the generous-sized pork schnitzel sandwich which was truly yummy. My husband enjoyed his favorite: BLT with French fries and a draft beer. We were in an upstairs dining area which had a lovely view. We plan to return soon for lunch with relatives who will be visiting us.
