When I first came across Farmer Boy restaurant I was a little uneasy with all of the mixed reviews my friends had given me. I decided i had to go in to make my own decision and help you make yours. The atmosphere was ok, it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good. The service was sub-par. My waitress was rude to me and incredibly slow. Needless to say that I didn’t tip her well. The food was alright but not worth the wait at all. If you are lookin for a nice, fast, tasty place to eat, then I recommend that you try somewhere else in the Akron area.

Where to start. I didn’t like Farmer Boy that much. I ate there a couple time then I found myself getting a job there to make some money. I never liked the atmosphere there and after awhile it makes you crazy. I have been working there for 7 months and I can say alot about what goes on behind the kitchen doors.
The cooks take there good old time makeing food when you, their hard working paying costomer. Sometimes they wait till they are done with a real quick smoke break till they prepare your food. Not to mention their quick restroom breaks. The restrooms in the back arnt usually stocked with soap and papertowels so I highly doubt that they get thair hands cleaned befor handeling your food.
The dishes never get fully cleaned. After going through the dishwasher, half the food dont get off the plate, so they just wipe it off so it appears clean. Lots of germs.
The waitresses, they seem nice but when they walk back to their register, usualy they have nothing good to say about anyone. Then when you leave and only leave a couple dollar tip, they go on a rampage and wonder why they got such a small tip.
The head manager, not going to say any names is the worst manager I have ever met. Not very good at keeping the restraunt up and running.
(note: If you are looking for a job, I highly advise you look somewere else in Akron to work.)

Friday fish fry left my husband throwing up into the morning hours. I can attest, from this experience alone that what Nikker_Sixx claims in his/her review appears to be true. This was our 3rd visit (all previous were good w/good, umm, end results) but it was our last. I had the eggplant parmesan, which I enjoyed. The service was good, especially given it being packed. But it all discounts what is apparently lacking in proper sanitary conditions.
Tasted good at the time, but it (or the cooks unwashed hands) gave my husband food poisoning.

This place has gone downhill. There was a time when the parking lot of this place used to be full, but not anymore. Today, I learned why that is. First, they wouldn't let me substitute the eggs that came with a meal I had planned to order.…

If you're hoping to enjoy world-class food in a nondescript restaurant south of Akron, Ohio, you're barking up the wrong tree. You can achieve that goal, but you'll need to Google the phrase "Barberton Chicken" first. Farmer Boy is a…
