Farm-to-table
Farmhouse is a Midwestern Craft Tavern focused on delivering warm hospitality, great beer and wonderful food in a comfortable neighborhood setting in the heart of River North. Focused on the Midwest, Farmhouse offers 28 beers on draft, 24 from Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan. Along with our Cider!

The menu ingredients are harvested from local farmers and change with the Midwestern seasons. Farmhouse offers locally sourced, pastured raised burgers, cuts their our own fries and makes almost everything from scratch on premise. We are a green tavern. 85% of the building materials, furniture and fixtures were salvaged from an abandoned factory on the South Side.

Some of the seating at Farmhouse consists of community tables, seating between eight and ten guests, encouraging a convivial atmosphere. Please be aware that smaller parties are sometimes seated at community tables.

Love supporting local businesses who support local farmers. I enjoyed the french toast and my husband really enjoyed the eggs benedict. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for brunch.

Food was great, disputed the awful gluten free alternatives for apps. However, things were way more pricy than the atmosphere suggested. I’m sure billet steel high top table seemed like a great item, that is until until you try to cut a steak on a plate that won’t stop wobbling on a table that likes to join in... lots of spilled water tonight. Drinks were super tasty too, but again more expensive than they ought to be. Two entries and four drinks were $125.

Very good food, but service was quite slow and not very attentive. There would have been at least another round of drinks had the waitress been paying attention. The restaurant was not that busy, so surprised by the amount of work we needed to do to get the attention of servers. Still food was great - and there certainly wasn’t any push to get us out the door - even on a Friday night

When we got to the restaurant they did not have our reservation. Then they told they did not have any seating outside for 5 people and they would not pull two tables together? Then one of the guests at our table received a salad with some of the ingredients that were listed on the menu missing. The manger on duty did apologize and compensated the missing items. The waiter was great, but the greeter at the front was disorganized and had no clue how to handle a crowd nor how to handle when issues came up.
The food was good.

Stopped in for dinner on the way home from work. We split the cheese curds ( a MUST!) and a salad and short rib entree. We sat at the bar and the bartender was helpful in picking out drinks and suggested I try the cider flight which was super fun - will be back for sure to try more!

Menu choices are fantastic and they just came out with their new Summer selections. The chicken soup is the best I've ever had at a restaurant and contains no grain! Cocktail, wine and beer selections are unique and there is something for everyone!

The noise level was through the roof. Made relaxing and talking impossible. I've read that restaurants do this to increase throughput. This shouldn't happen at a restaurant where a modest dinner for two with one drink per person costs $100 with tip.

The asparagus was ruined by absurd amounts of oil. Please learn to let vegetables shine on their own.

Our waiter was very good. Only good aspect of experience.

Had a wonderful dinner with an old friend at Farmhouse. It was smaller than I thought it would be but once we were sitting our server was excellent. The Wisconsin cheese curds are amazing and the rest of the food was wonderful as well. It lived up to its idea of fresh and flavorful.

My 8 year old treated me to Mother’s Day Brunch and the food was wonderful. The flavors of the farm fresh eggs, bacon and potatoes was spot on. The fresh strawberry and rhubarb pancakes were delicious. If you have a chance get the cheese curds. They had a light batter and just melted in your mouth. Can’t wait to try their regular brunch menu.

Great food and atmosphere. Well thought out dishes. Great drinks and decent beer selection. They make a great house cider that is not as sweet as most. (I usually don’t care for ciders, this is a great gateway cider). Menu is fairly limited, but you shouldn’t have trouble finding something interesting. Larger portions than I expected. Good job!
