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.

Loved this place! Food was fabulous - 8 of us dined together. Reservation was easy. Table was ready when we got there. Ordered drinks off their menu, loved the “whatcha matter witchu” cocktail. Had 3 appetizers- pretzel, hummus and bindle board - all delicious.5 of our party had the signature pork chop and said it was the best chop they ever had. The rest had the short rib and it was fantastic.
Would definitely return!

Had a great time. The restaurant is small but the food and drink options were AMAZING. The beer selection was off the chain. I will be coming back.

Food was delicious and loved the decor of the farm theme. Plus there was a Johnny Cash signed photo in the back! And I am a big fan 😊

I would not call the noise level “energetic.” It was really really loud. Loud music and a large and loud party next to us upstairs. We were sitting next to each other in a corner table and had trouble hearing each other. Everything else was great.

This is by far the BEST brunch place in Chicago, We started with the HOT donut holes and sweet sauce, followed by the Eggs Benedict that I could not even finish. The crispy potatoes and sausage were just amazing. The bloody mary's were very good and the service is always excellent. I highly recommend The Farmhouse for any occasion! Thanks again for a wonderful experience...

The kale and tomato (with burrata) salad was amazingly fresh. I had a pan seared barramundi “side order” with it, and the fish was light and tasty. After asking the portion size of the fish entree (2 fillets, 10 oz total), I asked if they would do a half portion. That’s when she pointed out the side order, which was perfect with the salad. Wine pours were generous, and the house made vodka in a martini was superb. The burger was delicious, and the fries....yummm! Let’s just say you could tell they were fried in something other than vegetable oil. The only negative was how long it took to get our drinks and our food. And the bleach smell that greeted us when we entered.

Farmhouse is a great last minute reservation in the city. We like it for a Friday night date night. The food is a good value, and they change up their menu a lot. The cocktails are interesting, and the food is incredibly rich. I've never been disappointed.

Really enjoyed the beers on tap, and the food was really great. Restaurant was pretty busy, but the food came out very quickly so we could get to a show. Would definitely go back and try other things on the menu.

One of my favorite places in Chicago. I love that the menu rotates with the seasons and with what is fresh from the local farms. We had flatbread as an appetizer, which was topped with fall vegetables and was delicious. The seasonal salad and house burger both were perfectly balanced with flavor and creativity. Our only complaint was our server, who seemed to have wanted to be anywhere else but there that night.

Food was wonderful. Server was fantastic. Huge delay between ordering dinner and receiving our food. While we had a group of 7, there was a couple that came in after us that was seated at a nearby table. They ordered dinner after us, obtained their meals, ate, paid and left before we obtained our entrees. Everything else about the experience was great. This was the only thing that was disappointing. Clearly an issue with the back of the house.

Meal was great, as was the ambiance. Service was unfortunately slow despite the fact that the restaurant wasn't full. Took well over 10 minutes after being seated to take drink orders

Austin our server was great! The food was superb - it was the largest pork chop I’ve ever seen and perfectly done. Seasoning, presentation and libations were all a great fit.
