    It was just ok for the price. I think if the price was lower it might justify the missing elements. I don’t Recomend for special occasions. Only for drinks by the fire or desert or a regular dinner. I just was not impressed. The truffle pretzel was yummy and my watermelon margarita was delicious. Everything else tasted good but was overpriced. Also leave out the spice on the short ribs. Def not needed. Tuna appetizer needed to be upgraded. I’m not even sure what the side was on the that. Can’t really mess up sesame tuna. And I was disappointed. Outdoor seating was not romantic it was general outdoor seating.

    Sit outside — loved the patio space and fire pit! The main entrees, kids meals and desserts were so good, especially the steak and fries. Only thing that felt a miss was the spicy shrimp flat bread — combination of ingredients didn’t work for me so wouldn’t get that again. Would def go back.

    On a positive note, the outside setting is beautiful. Sitting outside on a summer night is a delight, albeit they need citronella candles for the mosquitoes galore. Also, our server was attentive and good. However, the food was really bad. The Brussel sprout salad was horrible. The green hummus was tasteless, the chicken salad sandwich tasted like old chicken that had been cooked days prior. We will not be going back there unless they change the way that the food is prepared. I’m so tired of average food with high prices. This was poor quality food with high prices.

    Went to brunch with my daughter and cousin - while the choices were varied and the food was very good, I think the price of $45 is too high. The service was excellent and the presentation of the brunch was very nice. We ate inside which was comfortable but outside looked like it would be nice, too.

    Food was just OK. Other functions going on and it was incredibly loud. For the price down there are certainly better options available in Montgomery county. Very slow as well. We had 5 o’clock reservations but did not get out of there till well after 7 o’clock.

    Had previous really good experiences here. Service was great. Chicken orzo lemongrass soup had neither lemongrass or orzo. Crabcake was barely warm. Duck was barely warm and incredibly tough, thought the kitchen would have noticed that when slicing for plating.

    Prompt efficient service. Our waitress, Kelly, gave us undivided attention. We were never rushed, our seats were wonderful and the food "OUT OF THIS WORLD". The Caprese open faced sandwich exquisite, the Omelet of the day amazing, the Turkey Club delish. The presentation gorgeous! My only recommendation is to save room for DESSERTS! Both beautiful and yummy.

    We had reservation, arrived 10 minutes early, were sent to bar for 15 minutes. Got outside setting, which was nice except that in the middle of the yard was a large laud group that elevated the noise. We waited for 25 minutes until a waiter asked why we are sitting there. Meal presentation was nice, except that one of the two appetizers was first wrongly delivered. Appetizers (octopus and crabcake) were delicious. As main dish the short rib was OK, but the lamb chaps had too much fatty residues. Service was OK once it started. We finished all in all within about one hour. Not bad but also not unforgettable dining experience.

    Maybe there’s a new chef? Maybe they can’t get staff? This dinner was a disgrace for a restaurant which formerly enjoyed a stellar reputation . My husband’s strip steak was all bone and gristle. My crab cake looked like it was never cooked. Everything looked like it had been thrown on the plate. The dessert was the highlight of the evening. Our Server,Michael , was an arrogant youngster who had no idea of what the dishes were or how they were prepared. It seemed like he was wasting his time serving food. The prices were inflated. We used to enjoy coming to The Farmer’s daughter. In fact, we celebrated our husbands’ birthdays here pre-pandemic. We will not be back again. Very disappointing.
