    We visited yet again and had a wonderful dinner. So nice to sit outside on a summer evening. I had the special arugula salad which I wish they would add to the menu, sooo good. For my dinner I had the appetizer lamb chops. I've had them before and am never disappointed, they are delicious and more than adequate for me. Other dishes are good, but the lamb chops are my favority. My husband has had the meatloaf and loved it but this time had soup and the chick ceasar salad which was very good. We will keep going back.

    We ate on the patio with friends. Very relaxing evening. Not rushed. Very good dinners and reasonable prices. Friendly service. The occassional golf cart going by on the ajacent lane was briefly annoying - I think they must be gas as they are not silent. Golf course however was a nice view and across the road was Evansburg Park.

    Our first visit -- the ONLY thing to complain about was the long wait to get served, from ~20 minutes between being seated with menus to seeing a server to a longish prep time for the melted brie wheel app and broiled salmon entree. But the food was well worth waiting for -- excellent (moderate) portions, savory ingredients, careful & skillful preparation. The staff was aware of the slow service and very accommodating. It was Lily's first night on the floor--a lot of fun; Travis knows his bar and made sure we were doing okay once he knew of the delay. Very homey atmosphere (we were indoors) and the patio option looked superb, with live music and the golf-course view. We'll go back, and hope they have their service issues resolved..

    My wife and I have driven past many times and finally stopped in for dinner. We generally aren't ones to complain and very rarely send food back. But when the best part of the meal were the prepackaged rolls, there is more than just room for improvement. Their lobster bisque soup special was mostly salt, some clumpy cream and maybe a little lobster. After one spoonful we sent it back. It was inedible. The "lump" crab was shredded crab with an odd collection of stuff mixed in, including the shells. Even the garlic mashed potatoes were disappointing. Rather than give them the opportunity for strike three, we opted to go salvage our night with dessert and a drink at another restaurant in Skippack. Needless to say, just don't go.

    Lovely setting overlooking Skippack Golf Club. Food was OK at best. Short ribs were decent but the saffron risotto that came with it was very undercooked and oddly lacking in flavor. Meat loaf was described as a bit dry; the sauce appeared identical to that on the short ribs.

    This was our 2nd trip to The Farm House Restaurant and we returned because of a super first experience!! Sometimes it is true that first impressions are the most important. We were looking forward to a great outdoor dining experience because the weather forecast for Saturday night was awesome. We both remember our first trip to The Farm House Restaurant and so we made reservations for dinner at 7:00 on the patio. We were not disappointed. We had a great night!! Our server was super...the beers were cold...the meals were exceptional...the setting was just what we were looking for...and we had two delicious desserts!! We will be back!!

    The restaurant is on a golf course, is inside and outside dining. It was a pleasant night, so we ate outside. The service was prompt to start--took an order but it took a long time to get bread, and a long time to get her to come back. Ordered tuna, prepared rare, and it was anything but rare. It was definitely medium which no pink remaining (wife also had it same way, despite rare) and we thought that was poor prep and poor attention to detail. The waitress may have been waiting on too many tables, but she essentially ignored our table and we went at least 45 minutes without her coming back to fill water, to check on things, etc. Even had I wanted to send the fish back, it would not have been possible and still eaten. Overall, meh

    We visited the Farmhouse once again and had a very enjoyable dinner outside on the patio. The food was delicious and i love the Canyon Road wine, a tasty, refreshing chardonnay at a great price. I had the scallop appetizer and the red beat salad. The scallops were scrumptious. My husband had the meatloaf which I tasted, and it was great They are good about substituting veggies when what is on the menu doesn't suit. We will be sorry when the outdoor dining season is over, but we will continue to enjoy dinner inside.

    When we arrived the young lady was busy making light conversation with the staff. She didn't even acknowledge us until she was done chatting, this took several minutes. We were then seated and waited almost 10 minutes for the waitress. She came and we ordered dinner and a bottle of wine. After 20 minutes another person delivered our dinner, we never got our wine. I told them not to charge it to my bill since I never got it. They said it was already open and will bring it out. I didn't want to drink it after dinner I wanted it before an d during dinner. I will not return to this establishment.

    Looked great on the web but food was a bit boring, specially the sides. The dessert menu looks like it came from a Friendly's - ice cream, apple pie or cheese cake. It was allright overall but I was expecting more based on the pictures on the web and the high prices. Don't go there if you are trying to impress someone.

    Once again we had a delicious meal. There were six of us and everyone really enjoyed their meal. The place was packed both inside and out. So service and turn around from the kitchen was slower that normal but the quality did not suffer at all. We felt bad for Dina because she was so busy but did not forget about us.

    two of us had salmon - it was overdone. One in our party had pasta and that was just OK. One in our party had the short ribs and she liked them but also had the cheesecake and thought it tasted - store bought - not homemade. Honestly, we would not go back or recommend to others. very dissapointed in it.

    Wound up here after other arrangements fell through. Food was well prepared, but menu is not very big. We were literally only people inside (maybe 1 other party outside) and service was very slow. Our plates sat empty, waiting to be cleared for a good 10-15 minutes after each course. Server was busy gossiping with bartender while we sat there. Overall it was okay but I don't think we will go back.

We will be back because it is something different than the other Skippack resturants and it won't break the bank. The outdoor area with music on a Friday night made it exactly what we were looking for, this alone would bring us back.

    There were four of us at the table. Three dinners were served and one had to go back because it was cold. When it was brought back, the steak was tough, and the other diners had practically finished. The server was apologetic, and the manager gave dessert and coffee as an apology. It may be better on a night other than a Saturday night, when service and the kitchen might not be so stressed.

    The service was terrible. They seemed to have no system in place for assigning tables. Once seated, it seemed only the hostess was aware of our presence and she quickly forgot about us. The view from the outdoor patio was lovely but golf carts drove by at regular intervals. Some — but not all — of the food was excellent. I had a lovely salad. I had the scallops and mushroom risotto for my meal. The scallops were delicious but there were only 5 of them. The risotto wasn't cooked properly and lacked seasoning. All in all, we won't go back.

    We went for a dinner on a Friday night. The weather was awesome so we sat outside. It was a beautiful view. The crab cake appetizer was great. My wife ordered the scallops and I ordered the flat iron steak. They made me the filet mignon off the menu. They told me they made the wrong thing but did not offer to let me eat what they made. I was nervous about the steak because they did not ask me how I wanted it prepared. So I watched my wife eat the scallops which she enjoyed. When my steak came it was well done and bland. Even the horseradish cheddar mashed potatoes tasted bland. I was told the cook does not monitor steak temp. I will go back just stay with seafood.

    The food and service here is excellent. We were sitting outside because we arrived early and Dina came out to offer to bring a cocktail. When we went inside to enjoy our meal it was just fantastic. Baked Brie was perfectly done. Calamari had the perfect zing. My salmon was wonderful and his steak was perfectly seasoned. Finished off with an apple pie ala mode. Unpretentious elegant friendly and just lovely.

    Our party of four arrived and was seated quickly for our 7:00 reservation on a Saturday night. The dining room had a nice, cozy atmosphere; although, the room was a bit crowded and could have used fewer tables. The restaurant was short-staffed but did a wonderful job of serving us. We all enjoyed our meals which included the barramundi fish, salmon and duck dishes. We intended to dine outside on the lovely patio; however, it was a bit chilly for that. The prices are average and we used a Restaurant.com certificate to pay for part of our meal. We did not have coffee or dessert. The outside area is very scenic and we look forward to our return and, hopefully, dining outside.

    My wife and I have enjoyed the Farm House several times before this visit. Last evening my wife ordered a meal not realizing that it consisted of heavy cream, which she cannot eat. The waitress without question apologized for not making the dish clear, offered to take it back, and the chef modified the recipe on the spot allowing my wife to enjoy the dish she had originally anticipated. In addition to great food, service and atmosphere, this was another sign of a quality restaurant where the customer comes first.

    It's a bit off the beaten path, but worth a special trip. The atmosphere is charming and the service very good. Nice, simple menu, but everything we ordered (party of 6) was well-received and nothing but clean plates were picked up when we were finished. Service wasn't rushed, either, which I really appreciated. Prices a bit high for what we had, but overall a positive experience.

    We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated by the hostess. The hostess gave us a menu and filled our glasses with water. We waited for 5 minutes and saw no sign of a server. A server went over to a table next to ours and ignored us on her way back to the kitchen. The hostess came by to refill our glasses and we told her to please send over our server. After an additional 5 minutes of waiting for someone to appear, we decided to leave. We let the hostess know we were leaving because no server ever stopped to acknowledge that we were even there. It was our first time to this restaurant which was half an hour away from our home. Can't really comment on the food because we didn't have any.
