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.

We loved it! Will be back... everything was outstanding though the ambiance was slightly less (just very good)...service and food off the charts... the Apple cider donuts might be the best thing we’ve ever eaten we decided among our party of eight. Great place!

What is not to love? Locally produced food, lovingly produced and kindly served. Good care taken for food allergies. Tables are close together, but noise levels are fine - can easily maintain a conversation without raising your voice to be heard.

Great food, slightly pricey for what you get, would have expected a warmer/more sociable wait staff.

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday, and it was perfect for this event. Steak and short rib were perfectly cooked and the side vegetables were out of this world good. We will definitely be back!

Portion is a little small.

I went for brunch, we had farmer’s breakfast, veggie harsh,trout Benedict.

Veggie harsh is more like potato + sweet potato. A lot of carbs

Trout Benedict just fine, nothing special.

Farmer’s breakfast, if u don’t like green onion like me, it won’t be the choice for you.

I took a team from work. They held a table for us in a good location. Everyone was very pleased with the food. The cheese curds were phenomenal. The service was quick. I would take my team there again.

This was our first time to Farmhouse. We had a guest who is vegetarian who doesn't like vegetables. It is often difficult to find a restaurant that makes everyone happy. Farmhouse did! We devoured the carmelized cheese dip. And we all enjoyed out entrees! I had the pork chop which everyone said was bigger than my head! Our wait staff was enjoyable. We wanted them to sit down with us! We will be back.

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.

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.
