    No matter what you order, you'll be pleased. I'm always amazed by the flavors and ingredients used to create such a tasty combination. And it is always fantastic and well presented. Everyone has "that" restaurant that almost always gets it right, but you are disappointed from time to time. Not this place. You'll be happy.

    The food tasted half way decent. We were nickel and dimed for 6 crackers costing $2.00. The cheese and meat tray we ordered for an appetizer was $13.00 and came with 6 crackers. The manager did take that off our bill after speaking to him. He said they were expensive crackers. They were carrs crackers I buy on a weekly basis. $3.99 a box. The server was not knowelagable on anything on the menu. Not her fault, they should educate her before sending her out to wait on people who are buying over priced crackers. There was no one in the restraunt except us... Maybe this is why?

    My wife and I, having read about Walhill, primarily in an article by the Cincinnati Enquirer's restaurant critic, decided to take a drive on a Fall day to enjoy the scenery and go to Walhill Farm for lunch. First came a Bloody Mary and a Virgin Mary. They were bland. My wife had the "Down to Earth Salad". The cook dumped too much dressing on top. My wife had the Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwich on what was supposed to be a toasted Chibatta Bun but it wasn't toasted. Parmesan Potato Chips were stale. Grilled cheese sandwich was good. The cole slaw wasn't fresh. We will never go back there. It is not only not worth the drive but I wouldn't drive 5 mminutes to eat there.

    I had the Stuffed Portobello Mushroom. When it came to the table, I wasn't sure how to eat it since it came on a bed of spinach. I decided to cut bites right through the spinach and eat it all together. That was the right choice. The goat cheese and vinaigrette make this light dish taste really rich. I like to try something different when I come here and this is my new favorite. I won't hesitate to have the mushroom again. My companions had the cheese steak, which is made from filet mignon, and the pimento chicken. For dessert, we each had a piece of apple streusel cheesecake. Everything was excellent.

    What a find! Just an amazing Farm to Table restaurant. Chef Nick Redding delivers with everything on the menu we tried over two nights as we just couldn't consider going anywhere else after the first night. I would have made Sunday brunch also if I didn't have Colts tickets on a recent Sunday. Seriously, you will not be disappointed unless you do t go. Locally fresh ingredients either grown on their farm or close by makes this a destination restaurant.

    Finally! Great food in Southeast Indiana! We have only been searching for 14 years! Perfect spot for an increble meal, as well as warm and friendly company and service by the management and staff. We were thrilled with the acoustic guitar and mandolin duo and are sad to hear no more music is planned for weekends-please reconsider. We will be back very soon!

    This restaurant is an unexpected gem in small town America. The atmosphere is quiet country in a pastoral setting. The food is very tasty and moderately priced. The service was prompt (Sunday late morning) and our server was welcoming and helpful. Coffee served tableside in a coffee press was a nice touch and the blend they use is delicious. We'll definitely return!

    Everyone was pleased with the new menu options. The duck breast and the glazed trout were phenomenal. As always, the salads were fresh and bountiful with garnishes, but pleasantly light with dressings. The basket of home-baked cranberry bread and rolls was worth the trip! Our waitress was extremely busy and delivering multiple entrees to our table was a challenge. Even though the food arrived in "spurts," it was well worth the wait. Each dish was artfully plated and "picture perfect" as it left the kitchen. The chef and management staff have made steady and significant improvements to the restaurant, making it a great place to enjoy fine dining close to home.....and in a casual setting where one can dine in hometown comfort..

    I know this is a farm and I guess they are trying to go with that image, but the quality and the creativity of the food calls for better. We had a reservation and were seated at a table that was 4 feet off the ground and looked like it belonged in a bar, not a high quality eating establishment (which this place legitimately is). That said the food and service were way better than one might have guessed from the feel of the place.

    Filet and chicken marsala were both winners, and although the service was a bit slow, it was a nice experience. Salads were bountiful and featured the freshest greens and bright dressings. The only downer was a blueberry shortcake ice cream dessert. The ice cream was more like a sorbet and did not have the creaminess to truly enhance the cookie. Other than that, the food was excellent and we had a pleasant evening in a peaceful country setting. We will return to see what's next on their menu!

    This was our second trip to the farm. We knew that live music was featured on Friday Nights, so decided to see what was happening. It was a blues duo, not bad. The food we selected was wonderful, but we both agreed that the entree selection might be a little "out there" for our less adventuresome friends we were thinking of bringing along next time.

Staff very attentive and pleasant. Great wine list. Food was very good, although mashed potatoes were slightly over salted. Dessert menu irresistible. Would go back.

    This was our third visit to Walhill Farms for dinner. On all three occasions the food was very good but the last two times the wait for food was crazy long. Our visit on Saturday, the waitress told us that they had a party so we were going to have to wait quite awhile for our food but the good news was that once they started on it, it would come quickly. She was right. It took one hour,from the time we ordered till we got our appetizer and another half hour until the entrees arrived. She could not bring more tea since she said they were out of glasses. Water was served in a small glass because again they were out of glasses. It is questionable whether we will return. The food is good but they have to get there act together.

    My sister discovered Walhill Farm from an ad that played on T.V. in Cincinnati. We met cousins from Indiana, who had never heard of it, there for lunch. The quality of the food was excellent and the seasonings and sauces inventive enough to satisfy any foodie. Even though the food alone sets this restaurant apart, it is the wait staff that puts it over the top. They were friendly and made wonderful recommendations making us feel like we'd come home. My only suggestion would be for them to stretch their advertising budget to include Indianapolis. I've eaten there twice both times with Hoosiers who loved it as much as I did.

    I'm from Vancouver Canada and we have some of the best restaurants in the world! This place could compete! The food was fabulous! The place is very busy, which is always a good sign, but it didn't feel crowded or loud. Its old and a little dark, reminded me of an old boys club. (which is not a fault) I would recommend this place, the only thing they could work on is the wine list, but that would not stop me from going back.
