    I had friends in from out of town visiting for the night, last minute, and we were able to get a reservation no problem! When we arrived, we were a little early for our reservation so we grabbed a round of drinks at the bar. The bartenders were super awesome and attentive. Once we got seated, our server, Austin, greeted us promptly. It turns out we were in a section that had two servers because we got David as well! Both were very attentive and answered all of our questions, they even talked us into ordering the crispy pig ear app, which turned out to be delicious and very filling! We also got the pimento cheese and the deviled eggs (a classic here). We were THAT group that sat and talked a majority of the time, so we took a bit longer to order, but they did not seem to mind, we were not rushed at all. Even though we filled up on apps, we ordered our entrees, which were delicious! (One got the hot chicken, and the other the short rib) We ended up being one of the last tables in the restaurant, but the staff was very friendly and did not try to rush us out, they even let us grab another round of drinks at the bar after we left our table! Overall, this is a great restaurant. The servers were attentive and more than accomodating to our longer-than-normal dinner. and it was very convenient that they had valet, because our cars were parked right up front so we didn't even have to wait to get them pulled up!

    We went to the Farm House for brunch. It wasn't crowded but the service was pretty slow. Not sure what that was about but our waiter was apologetic and he was fine throughout of the meal. Not super friendly but did his job. The brunch menu was very small. I ordered the bacon sandwich. The bacon was excellent. I thought it was supposed to come with Dukes mayo, it was missing it but I ate it anyways. You can't beat good bacon. You got a huge portion of fries which were really potato wedges. If that's your sort of thing you'll like it. I definitely want to go back for dinner or lunch. Probably won't be back for brunch. It was good but not great. There are much better brunch places in Nash. In summary Atmosphere great and brunch food was good/decent but didn't blow me a way. Definitely worth a second try.

    This is my go-to place. I love bringing new people here. I think I've been here 10 times and I finally tried the hot chicken. Oh my goodness. Now I know why they never take it off the menu! Travis is hands-down the best server I've had there. Very knowledgable. Mike wasn't even our server but was happy to come over and explain a dish. I just love this place!

    This place is a must! First of all, our OUTSTANDING waiter, DiMarco made our evening! His humor & Tennessee drawl had us laughing throughout the night! His recommendations were spot on as well. In fact, we allowed him to pick the flavors of our ice cream trio (as there were too many unique flavors to choose from). The sweet corn ice cream was surprisingly our favorite! The sweet & sour pig ear appetizer was very tasty! The white beans were insane! The smoked gouda grits were scrumptious! Everything was delightful! Definitely visit The Farm House for an palate pleasing experience!

And don't forget the hot chicken sliders to start -- they're not killer hot but the flavor is fantastic, as are the biscuits.

    I took my boyfriend to Farmhouse for his birthday, and told the hostess the occasion. The food and service were amazing. We started off with an appetizer special, which was hot chicken biscuits, that were honestly one of the best apps I've had in Nashville. He ordered the beef cheeks and I ordered the drum, and both were delicious. The night finished with a special blondie dessert from the chef to celebrate the birthday boy!

    My wife and I ate at the farmhouse. This is my third time to the restaurant and my wife's first. Overall it was a good experience. I ordered the hot chicken. It was a chicken supreme with cayenne, not the Nashville Hot Chicken I have come to expect. My wife's scallops were perfectly cooked and the sides were outstanding. There may be a little too much smoke and salt for some peoples tastes, but overall a good experience. Staff was helpful but not outstanding. The dishes seem to be hit and miss. Last time I was there I ordered the pork rollup which was the dish that brought me back. Good date place, convenient.

    We were seated promptly. We were advised that it would take 3 o4 minutes before our waiter stopped by. We appreciated the warning, but we were in no hurry. The food was great. I had the fried chicken. It was spiced perfectly for my taste. I loved the biscuit puree. We would go back if we get back to Nashville.

    This is my second visit to the Farm House--the food is southern and the capacity to have a conversation is minimal. It is one of the loudest restaurants I have been in and in contrast to having some "background noise", it is hard to hear people across the table. Indeed, many couples seem to sit quietly, often looking at their phones instead of talking! The waiter needs some training as reaching across a table is not a professional standard when all seats are accessible. He often walked up and interrupted, instead of waiting briefly to garner the table's attention. The food is inspired southern, which places it among the myriad of other southern based food establishments in this town. This is a place to visit on occasion, and my quota is used up.

    As visitors to Nashville looking for a good meal Sunday morning, we literally stumbled into The Farm House. As we approached the restaurant, we asked leaving guests for suggestions. As each person enthusiastically told us their favorites, we knew instantly we were in for a great meal. We highly recommend. Too bad it will be awhile until our next visit to the Nash.

    My girlfriend and I ate here while on a vacation in Nashville. The service was excellent and the food, which is all local, was absolutely delicious! We shared the pimiento cheese app and split the porkchop and a side of mac and cheese and cornbread. The cornbread was phenomenal! Unfortunately we were too full to take a shot at the dessert menu, but we wish we could've tried! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a nice romantic evening with great food.

    Starting with the valet, our party of four was well taken care of all night. Our waitress was a little overwhelmed with the number of daily specials (can't blame her, the list was long), but she certainly knew her stuff and was pleasant and attentive. Others also supported her in bringing out our food and drinks without being intrusive. And the food, well I can't think of anything that we didn't like, even though our party is very diverse in our tastes. My drum was prepared perfectly, as was the side of cauliflower. Probably the only thing I didn't care for was the blonde brownie, which was like a hard cookie. However, the ice cream it came with was superb. Just remember, you get what you pay for, and here, you'll pay plenty.

    First, I've been for lunch in the past and thoroughly enjoyed my time at The Farm House from start to finish. So this time around, dinner was amazing. Again, our table started with the double deviled eggs topped with chow chow and smoked salt perfectly lined on serving dish made from sanded down barn boards - one word, YUM! I had the trout for my entree and it was divine, perfectly prepared and presented. I will return again and again, it's a unique restaurant with an extraordinary menu (short but still extraordinary :)

    I really understand farm to table being expensive but we thought the salad was very small for $11 it was tasty just small. We had the whole fish they did not debone at table so I saw many struggling to eat. It took my husbands assistance to remove bone without trashing the fish. It also was a bit salty and my husband could not eat the lentils because of the salt issue. Knowing this I would go in with different thoughts and ask questions about the dishes

    We were staying in downtown Nashville for the weekend and found this great spot. Our server was friendly, efficient and offered some great tips of places to visit in Nashville. Our food was amazing. We had the steak biscuits (the daily special) and eggs benedict. Both meals were flavorful, filling and reasonably priced. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Nashville who wants a delicious meal made with fresh, local ingredients.

    The Farm House is a great find. The food was just terrific, with one exception, which I must admit was an adventure. That was the crisp brussell salad. It sounded great, but was just too odd for my taste. That being said, the quality of everything else was just great. The short rib was perfection and the blondie dessert was to die for. Great cocktails, too. Our server, DeMarco, was very entertaining and made it a fun experience. We'd definitely go back when in Nashville.

    We didn't realize the potential from reading the menu but we all got something different.....every single meal was more delicious than the other. The bison was prepared to order and the pesto/spegetti squash was a real delight. The Black Drum and the pork chop were also super. The unique menu, the atmosphere, the drinks, and more made it a great foodie evening. Service was average and the food took a little long in getting to the table but it was well worth the wait, don't miss this place if you are visiting the Music City.
