We had lunch there today on the beautiful crisp fall day. The decor is rustic but modern and warm. We were told to pick our table so we went “downstairs” near the fireplace (gas) which was burning nicely.

The lunch menu is not overwhelming with choices. I liked the simplicity.

I had a fried chicken sandwich with chipotle mayonnaise and top with green goddess coleslaw. The chicken was delightfully tender and the toasted brioche bun was perfect. I opted for the side of German potato salad which was tasty.

My wife had the Cobb salad. It was a generous salad and highlights included nice chunks of their homemade smoked pork belly bacon. It also includes a generous portion of their cubed fried white meat chicken.

The portion sizes were just right.

Prices were about average for the area.

Service was excellent and unassuming.

I’d go again.

NOTES: they have a full service bar and I think cocktails might be a specialty, so it might be a good place for happy hour or an evening drink. There was plenty of seating at and around the bar.

We were just in for dinner last weekend and had the greatest experience. The bar room is beautiful. We waited to be sat and ordered a few drinks from the bartender Sean, being a bourbon person he crafted me the best drink I ever had. Megan order a glass of white wine and they easily transferred it to our table with out us even asking .

We sat at table near the window and we instantly greeted with a smile and water service. sparkling or still. what a touch of class. Our server was amazing! she guide us threw the menu with ease made suggestions that fit our palettes very well. You must try the fresh oysters,and the crab dip. Wow.

Ericka then made incredible wine pairing for our main course I had the trout and Meg had the tavern steak. We had to share it was too good .

Our dessert choices Chocolate bar and banana cream pie were our the top. French press coffee to the table 1/ 2 or a full press was an added touch you don't see in many places.

We ended up back at the bar with Sean sipping a Papa Van Winkle 15 yr .

We spoke to Sarah the Guest Services Manager and booked a suite for her birthday . She was lovely. Her and Megan chatted about local art and hot spots.
To the entire staff at at WM Farmers and Sons it like was going dinner with friends

Stayed at Wm. Farmer for the weekend, and went to the restaurant for brunch on Saturday morning. We had a great round farm-style table for 6 people, and our servers were super nice and efficient. We all had the brunch burger, and then got an order of the fried french toast with blueberry compote for the table. Everything was delicious! Would definitely eat here again.

It is a heavy menu, and if you don't order carefully you'll leave feeling like a stuffed goose. Me, rich crab dip, a burger, and then banana cream pie. Oy. But that's on me. Our dishes were well-executed and thought through. This isn't high cuisine but then it doesn't try to be, and you can see that the chef puts effort into conceptualizing and executing the burger, the steak, the fish, the shrimp . . . . The room is warm and inviting, and was busy the three nights we were there (the other 2 just for drinks as we were staying in the hotel). Service was very good and attentive. This is a well run operation. We enjoyed hanging in the bar the other 2 nights after dining elsewhere.

This charming spot has it all: friendly staff, great atmosphere, delicious food and tasty drinks. We enjoyed a leisurely brunch in advance of our friend's train back to the City (the train station is a 3-minute walk); the diverse menu had something for each of our widely-varied preferences, including a vegetarian. We look forward to our next visit.
