I have to say, when several friends and several websites directed me to Chef & The Farmer in Kinston, NC of all places, I was skeptical. I read at least 100 reviews before making a reservation. We were beyond impressed. The wait staff was incredibly friendly. Attentive yet unobtrusive. The food was outstanding. Very interesting flavor pairings. My husband had the ribeye, which was the best steak either of us have ever tasted. The fried oyster appetizer was phenomenal, as was the sausage and pimento cheese dip. My sweet potato and burboun glazed pork lasagna was great, but I prefer something a little less sweet for an entree. We did order the 10 layer chocolate cake with salted caramel icing. Also delish. I recommend this to anyone east of Raleigh. It is work the drive

This is a wonderful place to eat, that is also upscale. They serve fresh food that is grown locally.

In this area, there aren't many fine dining options. The Chef and the Farmer was very good for here. I wouldn't compare it to a restaurant in a bigger city or anything, but it's worth checking out.

This is truly a gem of a restaurant located in a town that one wouldn't expect. I am well traveled and enjoy fine dining/wining/cooking - this place could stack up well in any major metropolitan market. The menu is excellent - though the choices and distinctions aren't always as apparent on the printed copy as they are once they arrive at the table. There is plenty of experienced staff around to clarify and advise...from my own experience, Christina who usually works the bar area, has never steered me wrong. If you are passing through, I highly recommend this as a place to recover, relax, and enjoy. You won't be disappointed.

(Oh, and the wine selection...fantastic. Explore and task advantage of it!)

Actually the male owner is a big time tobacco farmer and the chef is his daughter who came back home to open a restaurant. Food is usually good, but service can be spotty at times.

I randomly passed by this restaurant on my way through Kinston. I learned that the owner is a farmer and his wife is a chef...hence the name of the restaurant. The place really has a friendly feel to it and the food was top quality. I really did enjoy dining here and will certainly stop by on my next trip through town.
