If you love farm to table and fresh food then this place is the place to go. The menu features what they are growing at the farm, everything is seasonal fresh. The kitchen is open to the dining room so you can watch the preparation. When we had dinner there a staff member was bringing in a box of fresh produce from the farm that was on the menu. Highly recommended!

This is one of the finer places in town. Locally owned. Food locally grown.

I had a beautiful valentine's day dinner here. The food was excellent. It was the best burger i've ever had. It was expensive (I think it was over 60 dollars for just the two of us) but it was so worth it. From the appetizers to desert, I had a wonderful time.

Tried this fine restaurant on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Athens. Kicked it off with the boiled peanut appetizer and the pickled vegetables. Really enjoyed both. The pickled carrots were nicely rough cut. Shared the Prince Edward Island Clams with cherry tomatoes and feta with my daughter. Side of fresh baked bread and butter. Finished it all off with a lovely slice of cake with toasted walnuts and a French Press caraffe of shade grown coffee. Wonderful atmosphere and excellent service!

My husband and I came in 30 mins. before close time but we were warmly greeted and catered to. Our waiter(wish i could remember his name)was very friendly and knowledgeable and could not have done a better job! We enjoyed some wonderful new flavors with the butchers board and had a classic-creme brulee for dessert. We will definitely be back!

Along with 5&10 and The National, I find Farm to be the class of Athens eateries. Farm takes a relative hit because the service can be a bit more lackadaisical, but that doesn't mean it's poor. The atmosphere here is great - just an interesting space and a beautiful bar area. Like the aforementioned spots, Farm does crafted, seasonal cocktails along with a few specialties. I'd say the bourbon selection is disappointing - but that's a universal disappointment for me in Athens, so maybe a tad unfair. If you're a carnivore, then do yourself a favor and get the butcher board (which we jokingly call the "Sorry, Wilbur!" plate.) Farm gets their meat locally and the butcher board samples fresh sausage, sweetbreads, pickled varieties, etc. Farm is a good call for downtown dinners with drinks.

I have never been to Farm 255 but had read a review in Flagpole Magazine and based on their recommendation went for dinner on Weds. July 14th. The Flagpole reviewer had mentioned that they had Terrapin draft for $1 and rated the sausage sandwich as very good, so I gave it a try. How can you pass up a $1 Terrapin! I asked the waitress/bartender if they had $1 Terrapin, and she apologized, stating that you had to order a meal to get that price. Surprise, but no problem. So, I ordered the sausage sandwich. It came with potato chips that were nondescript, but were obviously kettle cooked. I like kettle cooked chips, but these were mediocre. The sausage was about 4-5 inches long, served on a bun that was dry/stale, with cabbage on top that was somewhat flavorful. I ate the sausage and cabbage and they were mediocre. The bun was not good. Then I ordered another Terrapin, expecting it to be $1, as the waitress and Flagpole reviewer stated, but the receipt stated that it was $2.00. When asked, the waitress said that she should have made herself clear, but only the first beer (with required meal) was $1. The total was $11 something. The beer was the only thing worth the $$. Two star review, and that is generous.
