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.

Farmhouse is always solid. The menu is a little smaller but the quality of what you get and they options they have are all fantastic. The cheese curds are some of the best I’ve had outside of Wisconsin. A MUST visit!

The food was very good. Loved the lamb shanks and seafoods soup. Roasted chicken was delicious. Will come back next time we are in Chicago.

Very cute atmosphere. Went here for Chicago Restaurant Week 2020, mostly because the brunch menu seemed appealing - was very pleasantly surprised. Our waitress was attentive and friendly without being overbearing, and the food was fantastic. All of their food is sustainably sourced, and they even have their own farm that provides for the restaurant - how cool!

We typically dine at Farmhouse 1-2x a year. ALWAYS awesome. The burgers are in my top 5 in Chicago. Price is very reasonable and the meals, food, quality and service are a great value. Because this is all locally sourced I wish the Bourbon selection was a bit more adventurous but this is really a great destination for a great, casual dining experience.

True neighborhood gem. Had never been so I had no expectations. Food is fresh and homemade tasting: Chicken soup and buffalo chicken sandwich -- delicious. Friendly attentive staff. Support this gem!

Great restaurant week experience. The menu is a real deal. Eat here before it ends if at all possible. Deep fried cheese curds and short rib mac and cheese were fantastic! Kale salad and chicken were good too, but if you can blow your diet, go for the good stuff.

Their cheese curds = perfection. I ordered the brisket mac and cheese, which was good but very heavy and oily - I regretted my decision. (Why didn't I get the chicken?) My partner ordered a salad with added salmon and ate every bite (although he noted that the salmon serving was smaller than anticipated for th price) . Overall, good atmosphere and food. Seemed a bit overpriced - would feel like a better value if a small salad or side came with each entrée. It's nearby for us in River West, so we'll likely give it another try.

THis is the second time i have sat at the 4 top at the back by the wait station. Today, a waiter was very unhappy about working brunch and we all felt it every time he walked up to the station. Just made us want to get out fast unfortunately.

Pretty disappointed in Farmhouse. A group of us went for restaurant week. Nothing special about anything except for the brownie dessert. Server was super nice, but service was slow.

We had been here before for dinner, which was great! This time we went for brunch during restaurant week. The cheese curds were delicious, and the main brunch entrees were large. Our waitress Paula was very good. We’ll be back.

My wife and I had dinner in Farmhouse last Sunday night. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. The farm to table approach comes through so strongly in the taste of the food. The range of wines was great and reasonably priced. We really enjoyed our dinner and will be back before long.

Food, service and ambiance were great. It is pricey, but I guess you have to expect that in the city. Overall, worth it.

The drinks are overpriced for being just general brunch options, but the food is fantastic and the atmosphere is great. Definitely a good brunch option in the city. Parking was pretty easy as well.

Server didn’t ask me what I wanted to drink. Didn’t offer dessert menu. Didn’t offer to box my leftovers which were substantial. Leftovers were thrown out.

Server was friendly and apologetic about wasted leftovers.

Would love to know more about the origin of the food itself and the care and growth of the ingredients used. My son works on a sustainable farm in southern IN and we chose this restaurant for his specific interests (and all of our benefit!)

The drinks were outstanding. Absolutely loved the sangria-like drink (they let me omit the extra sugar!) with the fire roasted rosemary sprig. Very unique and fragrant - loved this! The food was amazing. We had the pork chop and chicken dishes and panzanella salad. Will definitely be back!

It was a wonderful farm to table restaurant for our family of five. Food was delicious and service was wonderful. It was a great way to end our day in Chicago.
