    Expensive for the amount of food received. The hollandaise was subpar. The loaded scramble was tasty and enjoyed the mimosas.

    Overall Farelly's was ok. I had the Shrimp and grits and they were extremely bland, almost tasteless. Appetizer's were good and the best part of the meal.

    Service was the best part. The food was ok, options are good, but a bit pricey for what you get. And while the live music was good, it was hard to carry on a conversation. So go for the atmosphere and fun…but not if you want a quiet, laid back Sunday brunch.

    They just switched over the the winter menu, and it was awesome. I had the pork shank, and loved it. And the Cider Margarita was amazing. I will say, my friend was underwhelmed by the burger. Our server David was excellent. Personable and helpful! Wine prices were pretty good.

    My mother and I go to lunch once a month or so and thought we’d give this place a try. Food lacked seasoning, there was a very long wait for it despite being relatively empty, and our waiter was ok.

    We had wedge salads, shrimp & grits, paneed chicken, and key lime pie. We were pleased with each item. Our server had a great attitude, even after dealing with prom-goers all evening. We really enjoyed the whole meal!

    We were elated to have chosen such a nice place for a weeknight dinner. Our waiter was outstanding with his selections and the food was the best we have had out in many many months. This place has quickly become our new favorite place to dine and we will definitely visit again soon. Chef's kiss!

    Our waiter was friendly and attentive. He was knowledgeable about dietary needs. He anticipated needs for drink refills and to go containers. He was prompt with the check and payment completion but we did not feel any pressure to leave. A very enjoyable dinner catching up with friends. My meal of salmon and vegetables was cooked to perfection.

    Had a wonderful birthday dinner at Farrelly’s. The fried okra and banana pepper appetizer was delicious! The shrimp and grits were a hit too. The restaurant is so nicely decorated and the tables are spaced far enough apart that you aren’t having to hear others conversations or talk over each other. We love dining at Farrelly’s!

    Farrelly’s was phenomenal!! We met some friends in the bar for a quick dinner after work and stayed for 3 hours. The food, the staff, the drinks, and the environment make Farrelly’s the BEST locally owned restaurant in the metro Birmingham area!

    This was our 6th visit to the restaurant. I LOVE that it's in Hoover, and not chain, but every time we go with a large party it disappoints. We had a part of 9 and while the server was energetic, he was EXTREMELY forgetful. We had to ask for almost everything twice. When he came to ask about a 2nd round of drinks, he only asked half of the table?! So half of the groups second round of drinks arrived when we were ready for our checks. He also completely forgot one order and didn't even notice that she was sitting there with no food. He forgot one of the sides, didn't refill waters etc. None of asked for anything complicated. If you can't remember- WRITE it down!!
