    We ate at FarmBloomington on Father's Day. I had made reservations and we were seated right away. Everything about our meal was fantastic. The food was excellent, our server was very busy and still managed to take great care of us, and the ambience was nice. I look forward to another meal there soon.

    Overall good experience. We had reservations for Father’s Day. We started with the Hummus and it was tasty! I had the Poutine and it was super salty but my husband said his Eggs Benedict was good and our kids split the French Toast and they seemed to really enjoy that. Their espresso machine was down so that was a big bummer but their coffee is nice. Service was a bit slow but we were expecting as much on a holiday. Restaurant has a farmhouse feel and it’s much more relaxed than we remember it being but it was a nice place for Father’s Day.

    The food was half and half. The fries were amazing. The OJ was amazing. My 9 year old said the grilled chicken was good. Fruit was amazing. BUT The toast was so hard I couldn’t stab a fork in it. The grilled cheese was awful. I’m not even sure how a grilled cheese can taste so bad. My husband got a bison burger, medium rare, and it was about as hard, dry, and burnt as the toast.

    The food was ok.The Salmon had no taste, the cranberry sauce was super bitter. My kids ate the burgers and they were great except they were told they couldn't get fries only potato salad but the menu stated you were able to substitute. Our waitress was not that great.

    We ate at the restaurant on a Wednesday night and really enjoyed the food. Service was great. We were delighted to find that they had a vegan dessert on the menu (my daughter is allergic to eggs). Much to our dismay, they did not have the dessert that evening, so my daughter was unable to enjoy dessert. We returned to the restaurant on Friday, mainly because their Friday special is prime rib. We were seated and as our server approached we heard someone from the kitchen tell her that they were out of the prime rib. We were also told that they, again, did not have the vegan dessert (chocolate pave) in the menu. Even though the food at FarmBloomington is quite good, we were overall a little disappointed with our experience.

    Nothing special. Menu seemed limited and overpriced for the food. The server was very friendly but took a while to get food, get refills, and get our check. Definitely over priced and not worth the trip. We won't be returning.

    Good American food—farm-fresh eggs. Servers were nice but it was just ok and very slow. A couple errors. But they try to make good on it. Fairly pricey but you’re getting quality food.

    The atmosphere was pleasant and our waitress was wonderful. Our drinks we very good. The fish special was a little over fried and the hushpuppies lacked, in our opinion, taste (they were flat tasting with simply the cornmeal coming through; no spices or seasoning tasted). The portabella mushroom entre was good and the carrots on the side tasted great; perfectly cooked. Dessert was good as well. The appetizer of garlic fries were a hit with everyone.

    We love FARMbloomington. We keep it in a steady rotations when we make the 2 hour drive to spend the day in the area. Location is convenient for downtown shopping . The food is always outstanding and the staff always treats us as though we were important individuals. They genuinely seem to enjoy working there and that enjoyment carries over to our dining experience! This visit we sat at the bar and enjoyed the interaction with both the staff as well as other patrons as they came and went. A wonderful morning!

    The atmosphere is great and Sarah, our waitress was the best!! She knew the menu and was super friendly and inviting! The food was terrific! We ordered the brussel sprouts for an appetizer-simply delicious!! For the main dish, we had the bison burger-it was huge, none of us could finish it. The garlic fries are amazing with a touch of spice!

    It was ok, but not good enough to make me want to return. I got the BLT… the bread was over toasted, the potato salad was bland (more like cut up boiled potatoes), the side greens and pickle were good. Bottom line, I make a better BLT for a lot less than $15.
