We have had brunch at The Granary many times. We lovethe food and the service. Also The Granary catered a 90th brthday party for us and everything was perfect.
We had eaten here before and enjoyed it. However, the service on this visit was awful. We were the first to enter the restaurant when it opened, but others around us had already eaten and left before we even received our food. The waitress was inattentive, we did not receive the salad we had ordered, and my salmon (which I ordered medium rare) was overcooked. All in all, not what I would expect from such a restaurant.

Great to get back to the Granary. Only constructive criticism is that all the food left on the plate be put in a to go box, especially when the customer support specifically requests it.

The entrees vary in quality. When they offer their special entrée of the evening, you would expect that it would be a dish that the chef feels represents his culinary skill. we enjoy the atmosphere at THE GRANARY, but the quality of dishes is not consistent. Service can vary from fair to good.

The Granary is just a great place for a meal. I had the best meatloaf I've ever had. Simply amazing
Great lunch spot
Interesting menu and all selections were quite tasty and each had an unusual but interesting taste twist that separated them from run of the mill lunch fare. Service was cordial but slow...or since we enjoyed chatting one could also call it leisurely! We will definitely dine here again, and I would strongly encourage reservations.

Perfect place for Grad Dinner
I had a wonderful experience at Fearrington! I had myself and 11 family members for my graduation dinner there. The food and service was wonderful plus they had us seated upstairs in a private area which was perfect. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

I took my mom there- she loved it! Good food selection and attentive staff. Too much high fat food though.
Good food; great atmosphere!
The Granary has great menu and charming atmosphere! Our family brunch was lovely and the walk through the village was enjoyed by all.
good food disorganized service/reservationsprocess
The food in general was very good. The wait for a table was too long. We had a 12:00 reservation and weren't seated until almost 12:30. We were promised a particular table and the table was given to someone else. We than sat at a different table and were told that we could have the original table we requested after all as the table had now become available. It took a long time for our drinks and orders to come out. The restaurant was definitely understaffed for a warm Sunday afternoon brunch.
Great place to get together with family
This was a wonderful, laid-back dinner. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and worked to fit our dietary needs (I'm celiac and my mom and aunt try to eat gluten-free). We all had wonderful food, the prices were appropriate and the drinks were tasty and original. Can't wait to go back!!
A lovely afternoon with girlfriends for lunch!
The food, service, shops & grounds were all beautiful! I felt like I was on vacation even though I live in Cary, NC.
This restaurant has gone downhill, big-time. It used to be a favorite of ours and we live in Fearrington Village, so it is doubly-disappointing. I will no longer bring our house guests here. The once great beet salad was a big disappointment with just wedges of beets in a small bowl. Blah.... I had the mussel dish for my mail course and many of them were gritty and some were even inedible. One of the other dinner guests also ordered the mussels and she had half the mussels that I had. Another dinner guest ordered the meat loaf and it was bland. We will not return.
We went on a Monday night
There are few options for dining on Monday, so we went to The Granary. We've been there many times before and the food and service are usually good, never terrific and frequently underwhelming. Great concepts not always well executed. Food is very hit or miss. Some courses wonderful and then the next can be created at home with similar or better results. I applaud the efforts but get frustrated with the "oh-so-close." Service was very slow. The restaurant missed a few opportunities to make a few more dollars on wine/liquor service.
One of the best restaurants in the triangle...
We've probably been out to the Granary for brunch five or six times, but this had to be the best of them, and that's a tough bar to get over. To keep it short, great and interesting food without being extravagantly priced, and they cook their eggs perfectly - the mark of a legit brunch/breakfast spot. Dinner is always great too, and it ends with a manageable bill. This is without question one of the best and most consistent restaurants in the Chapel Hill area, and I'd put it up there with the top restaurants in the triangle. Fearrington House is an incredible experience, but the Granary makes the experience accessible when it's not a special occasion (or even when it is).
Perfect for future special events
It was a first time for our family to The Granary. The location was just beautiful, quaint. It reminds me a of a little Biltmore Village. We were seated on the 2nd floor, shame that we didn't get seated close to the window, but nonetheless, it was still a beautiful section of the dining area. They had a full course menu for a reasonable price of $25 per person. I had the goat cheese beignets as a starter, followed by a duck sausage dish, and ending with the creme brulee. Every dish was great, tasty, and well-presented. Each dish might seem small, but after having all 3, the portions were just perfect. I wish I could have had a signature drink, but we had kids with us, so I decided to just have a non-alcoholic German beer. Our server was very sweet and patient (we had some late guests). I definitely would like to come back for dinner and even stay at their inn. The place is a perfect hideaway and it's just under 20 minutes from where I live.
Atmosphere and service excellent. Food is average.
We like the Granary but wish the menu would have more items. Another steak besides a Flank steak would be nice. As would a few more appetizers.
So unexpected but loved it!
Driving up I was unsure because I never heard of fearrington village but the atmosphere was amazing! It overlooked the farm which was gorgeous! Our waiter was really engaging and had great recommendations. The portions were amazing and super tasty. I will definitely be going back!

Food was excellent. HoweverWe went on a Wednesday evening. It seemed to be understaffed for the number of patrons. It took an hour and a half from the time we sat to get our food.

Went for what we expected to be typical Easter brunch (i.e. likely to be not up to the normal standard we generally receive at Fearrington). Sadly was less than typical, bordering on terrible in terms of service, food, ambiance. Fearrington was clearly out to exploit the day. Will be a long time before we go back.
Family gathering was a sucess
Love this restaurant for family gatherings as it feels like home. Wine is great, portions are generous and service is always friendly
A cozy, lovely spot where we enjoyed a nice dinner with the added benefit of all wines being half price (Monday's only). The only downside is the t v in the bar. Much cozier without the t v.
My two friends and I enjoyed our lunch very much and will definitely be back.

Outstanding food and service. Great place for a celebration with friends and family
Nice evening out
My husband and I, along with another couple, celebrated his birthday at your restaurant. Everything was perfect, from the delicious spare ribs, that we shared as an appetizer, our individual entrees, and the yummy creme brulee that we shared for dessert. Our waiter was outstanding....one of the best. Would definitely come again, perhaps for brunch or to have lunch on the patio.
Keeps getting better
I eat here often because it is in my neighborhood. I have been coming more frequently because they continue to make improvements to the menu/food.
Great food in casual atmosphere.
Our server/bartender, George, was very personable. He made great recommendations. Enjoyed being able to have fine food in a location where jeans and a nice top was appropriate attire.
I took my family who was visiting from the West Coast. They were very impressed and we all enjoyed our food immensely. The service was top notch and the atmosphere was casual yet sophisticated.
Wonderful food and service!! Can't go wrong here!!
pleasant dinner with friends
Disappointed that upper level not available. Same thing happened on last visit Dinner was good, service excellent, bit pricey, but expected Nice 1/2 price bottle of wine on a Monday evening Wish they would stop putting kale and beets on everything!

Amazing Valentine's Brunch. We arrived early & took time to walk the beautiful grounds. The food & service at the Granary was just as amazing as the scenery. We'll definitely be back for brunch again & to try dinner in the future.
Could be better
Convenient to those in or near Fearrington Village. Food made the effort of being a bit creative but didn't quite live up to the effort...Our dishes were on the cold side, when they should have been hot. Service was perfunctory.
Food came quick and was cold.
Ordered two soups of the day to start. Both arrived at the table with 2 minutes. They looked nice, but were very small portions and were cold. Before we could finish our tiny cold soups, the main dish arrived. Main dish was barely warm. We were out the door in what felt like 30 minutes.
We had been wanting to re-connect with another couple for awhile and decided to get together for dinner at the Granary on a Friday night. It was a chilly evening and our delightful meals complemented our conversation perfectly. We each tried something different and we all thoroughly enjoyed the feasts that were set before us! The meatloaf dinner was a hearty, delicious surprise, the shrimp and grits very tasty, the salmon and polenta very nice ( although "served with brussel sprouts" turned out to be one half of a sprout) and the scallops very good! The four of us were not rushed as we caught up with one another over coffee, buttered rum, wine and dessert. A delightful evening!
Best brunch in the Triangle!
In my humble opinion! My friends had the crepes, crab cake eggs benedict, and other breakfast choices. I had the soup and sandwich--great BLT and carrot-ginger soup. It was just a great place to meet up with good food and a pleasant atmosphere....
The Best Place for Sunday Brunch
We love going to The Granary for Sunday Brunch. Their biscuits are the best I've had in any restaurant. I had the crabcake special with a poached egg served on an English muffin. It was beautiful and delicious. I usually get their shrimp and grits but decided to try something different. We had our 18 month old grandson along and they had a high chair waiting for us when we arrived. We were seated upstairs and he loves looking out the window at the cows and goats.
Great Place, but...
We love The Granary, make no mistake about it. We love the service, and Brad took great care of us. I will say that I gave the food a 3 star rating because I tried a rib-eye special they offered, and at best, it was acceptable. It was a bit on the tough side, it lacked any finesse, so I was surprised that it was a "special" offering for the evening. While I have usually ordered seafood that has always been superb, I did have another special the previous visit, which was Osso Buco, I believe, and it was superb, so I see this "steak snafu" a flash in the pan event. I still recommend The Granary to anyone who wishes an excellent dining experience.
We had a lovely corner table looking out at the gardens. The menu was packed with excellent choices. I had the tasty mussels, cooked just right and more than I could eat while my friend had asparagus with poached egg which she thoroughly enjoyed. The service was personal and professional. One of my favorite spots for lunch.
