Farley's Eatery & Pub is a restaurant in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania, and is considered a staple of Scrantonian culinary culture. Farley's promotes itself as having the "the best steak and seafood in downtown Scranton." Recently, it has garnered fame from being mentioned on The Office.

Actor Jason Miller died at the pub on May 13, 2001 from a major heart attack.

The TV series, "The Office", set in Scranton, made reference to the restaurant in a 2005 episode in which the loser of an office warehouse basketball game buys dinner from the pub. "Office" actor Steve Carell, who portrays self-indulgent office boss Michael Scott in the NBC sitcom, told reporters he would personally fly to Scranton to "cut the ribbon" if Farley's were to place a "Michael Scott burger" on their menu. [Carell, Steve (Actor). 2005. "Basketball" [Commentary track] , "The Office" Season One (US/NBC Version) [DVD] , Los Angeles, CA: Universal.] The burger has since been added.
