My husband and I went out for my birthday. We decided to splurge and have the hogfish. It was out of this world! The house dressing on the salad was wonderful too! Our waitress was great and we enjoyed eating outside.

Went to Farlows while visiting the area. Fantastic dinner and atmosphere. It is nearly always packed, so you will likely need reservations (or go early). Creative menu that features several dishes with bourbon sauces. Highly recommend seafood dishes.More

Always excellent. Have never had a bad meal in dozens of visits. Crowded is the only problem. Great grouper, hog fish and trigger fish. Great salads.
