Great service from Matt our waiter. He searched for a beer that originally appeared out of stock, found it. Answered questions about the various menu options. The entire staff was friendly and worked in teamwork fashion.

Love the Farm! We had a fabulous dinner and atmosphere was super. It's always great to find a family-friendly dinner option - our 2 year old daughter had fun playing on the volleyball court and it was great to see other families enjoying a dinner out!
