    After a very short drive from Atlanta, my boyfriend and I arrived at Serenbe. We were hooked just from turning in the driveway. The food was mouth watering and the service was impeccable. We have already planned our next trip.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014VIP
    Dined on 10/19/2014
    The ambiance is the best and probably only thing going for this place at least for Sunday brunch/lunch. The menu had a total of 4 items. Two appetizers and two main dishes. We order a salad that had no dressing. It was like eating off a field. The baby back ribs were very ordinary. Nothing special whatsoever. The other entree was fried chicken which I also tasted and it was better for what it is worth.

    Who would expect to find such an outstanding restaurant in the middle of nowhere? Absolutely beautiful surroundings, great atmosphere, and the food was absolutely fantastic! Excellent juicy fried chicken, fresh vegetables from the garden and the best biscuit I have ever eaten. Melted in your mouth. We will definitely be back!

    I had a GREAT time with hubby. We ate here right before watching Legend of Sleepy Hollow @ Serenbe Playhouse. A FANTASTIC evening overall! Food was great and farm fresh. Chelsea my server, was super nice and accommodating. She said "YES" to everything I wanted and needed! Very accommodating!!! Even the host (it was his second day of work) was really nice. Everyone in that town is so hospitable that it is scary. Def. in a league of it's own. It was a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta life. Hubby can be picky, but he loved the restaurant and the setting and the atmosphere. Cozy and comfy. The ONLY disappointment was that they ran out of the chive biscuits! They are to die for! We will be back!!!!

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    We went earlier than our reservation but were accommodated right away. We'd been before so we were familiar with the menu and the fact that they only had two entrees. However, they only had chicken available since they were out of catfish. It was okay though because their chicken is outstanding. The sides, mac n' cheese, beets, and kale were delish but lukewarm. The only thing that was bothersome was the temperature. It was so cold and my seat was near an a/c vent. Next time I'll make sure it's not in a cold spot.

    We went for my mom's birthday and enjoyed ourselves. The only issues we had was that they had misprinted the menu and only had one entree for lunch instead of two. However, the made up for it by providing the second option anyway. The second issue was that the waitress to it upon herself to decide that my 9 year old niece who barely eats could eat an adult meal instead of a child's portion without asking us. We had to pay for an adult plate for her. Despite the issues we had the overall service was great and I will definitely go back again. The waitress apologized for her mistake and provided great service overall.

    This place is easy to pass because you can't see it. It's actually at the Inn. When you walk in-- you come to a desk that looks like a reception desk, but it's just the bar. Pass that and you'll come to the host stand. Once you get seated, everything will be easy and perfect.

    As a prior diner at this restaurant, I was very surprised with the inconsistency on my recent visit. The waitress assigned to the table was very personable and helpful. The main course items were good. But the appetizer was terrible. Fried green tomatoes is one of my favorite dish. I have experienced some really good and some not so good fried green tomatoes. This is the only place where extreme saltiness of the fried green tomatoes made is inedible. We notified the waitress of the problem. She apologized and took the appetizer back to the kitchen. To our surprise, restaurant management refused to acknowledge their mistakes. More incredible, management wouldn't even consider offering to take it ($7 appetizer) off the check.

    Such a charming place, very special. My husband and I went for a relaxing romantic Saturday dinner. Loved it! The pureed cauliflower soup was very tasty, and my flounder with grits was a surprising taste-treat. Husband had the flank steak,which he liked a lot. Only thing that was missing for me was a conspicuous absence of vegetables. I love a salad starter(they had no salads!) and nice farm vegetables with entree. There was a vegetarian offering that included potatoes and beets (carbs!!!), but that said, the missing veggies didn't ruin the experience or the meal. Very beautifully prepared and delicious. One thing: go while there is still daylight, so you can take in the fabulous farm surroundings!!!

    I had heard about how great the fried chicken was at The Farmhouse. I was severely disappointed. I have had a lot better fried chicken at other restaurants. The chicken was okay, but for price I was expecting a lot better. The other items with the meal were average. I have had some awesome meals at this restaurant, but this is not one of them. I will not be going back there for lunch.

    We have eaten at the Farmhouse many times. This past Sunday was a VERY special celebration occasion and we made our reservation on OpenTable for 7 and we were looking forward to our visit; however by pure chance we went to the website to check the daily menu as it changes and when we did we happen to see that they were closing at 6. At that point I called the restaurant directly and verified they were closing at 6. I believe the reservation system should have marked to deny our 7 o'clock reservation. We thought we had our dinner plans all set and instead had no dinner.

    We were there on a Sunday night, closing night for the play. Our service was astonishingly slow, considering there were only 2 menu items to choose from. After about an hour of waiting (and polishing off every morsel of our starter), the server told us that one of the two items was "out." We picked another item; the server later returned to inform us that, actually, there was one more of the original item. After another 30 minutes, we finally got our food and it was, at best, ordinary. Quite disappointing, plus we were there so long we had no time to walk around or enjoy the evening before the play started. No apology. And the chairs were not comfortable enough to keep people sitting so long. Breakfast the next day was excellent though.

    We were very disappointed in this restaurant. We have been to The Hill many times and wanted to try another restaurant in Serenbe. The service was very slow. I know the lunch menu typically has 2 choices, but they were both fried along with sides that were fried! The fried chicken was good but the fried steak tasted like cardboard. It had no flavor at all. The fried squash was ok, but needed seasoning. We didn't get our water refilled until we were done eating. She didn't even come by to check on us. I would not go back nor could I recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    A bit of an off night here I think. Service was very slow. I was seated at 6:45 and didn't get my entree until 8:05. Took 20 minutes to get a drink. I was told a group of 40 people was the reason. I was seated ahead of this large group. I was going to see the show at Serenbe which began at 8:30 (which ended up starting 30 mins. late because of large group). I was concerned I would be late to the show which affected my enjoyment of the entree and my overall dining experience. Servers are friendly however which is the reason I gave service 2 stars instead of 1. Food was fresh, small portions, presented well. Pretty dining room...request to sit on the sun porch.

    Servers were pleasant, but the overall timing was just awful. Hours to wait for the dinkiest plate of food. Warm white wine. Second time we've been, and the service timing is just inconceivable. I get that it is a unique thing, being out in the country primarily serving those who come to the theater, but it needs to be figured out.

    Was so looking forward to experiencing The Farmhouse after reading up on it online. Booked a table for my birthday with my best friend and our daughters. No one helped us at the bar until a server came in and yelled for a bartender. The kitchen ran out of food and our choice was fried chicken - or fried chicken. What we received matched none of the photos I had seen on Yelp. We pre-ordered dessert when we heard they were running out of menu options, but it was served to someone else in the interim. We had a reservation, but no one thought to call us to ask us to rebook. I called the restaurant to tell management about our experience and see if it was an off day - left my number, and no one ever called me back. Horribly run place. Avoid!!!

    Starting to figure out what this restaurant wants to be. Visited twice (once for Thanksgiving buffet dinner - not a typical experience for any dining establishment). Decent entrees and small plate each time. Nothing to write home about - except for the the biscuits. Pork loin entree was so-so, and portion was on the small side. Wait staff is usually v. pleasant and great ambiance if you like the farmhouse setting. You're not driving this far to find a great gastronomic experience.
