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. We feature local artisanal liquors and a cocktail program created by Adam Seger.

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.

Can’t say enough about how wonderful this restaurant was. We had a group of 8 people and where seated early for our reservation. The food was amazing!! I had the fish, my husband the lamb, my dad the pork chops and my mom the braised ribs. My boys had hamburgers which where inhaled. The homemade fries where amazing.

We had no intention of ordering dessert but after splitting a bottle of wine, we felt it was much deserved. We went for the Walnut Marjolaine Cake and it was the best dessert I remember having in a long time. This is a must-have!

The whole experience was great. I had the tri-tip steak and it was cooked perfectly. The Pierogis were above expectations. This place was made it to our list of go-to dinner spots.

Great spot for brunch - delicious entrees with very friendly, helpful service. We even arrived several minutes late for our reservation for 2 but were seated right away at an open table near the door. The restaurant was packed around noon with some larger groups and it was fairly loud, but we could still have a conversation without much problem. After visiting for both lunch and dinner, the food never disappoints. It's one of my favorite spots for fresh, farm-to-table cuisine - tasty dishes with high quality ingredients that are not over-complicated. Highlights include the grilled cheese and tomato bisque, french toast, and salads.

My team and I went here for dinner. The food and service were amazing! I loved the "low-key" style of the restaurant but with top-shelf food! Would definitely recommend this place to others and look forward to returning again!

Food was so fresh you could taste how few miles it spent on the way from the farms where each ingredient was made. Lance at the bar was a fantastic, flexible host to myself and my plus one. He kept an eye on our coffee mugs and was incredibly polite when refilling them and checking in with us in general. Also, their coffee is great. If you want a good black coffee to start your day or keep it going, try this spot out. Might want to bring your own mug, though. I don't know if they have to-go cups.

Had made a reservation, but ended up taking seats at the bar. Everyone was chill.

My husband and I met my brother in law at Farmhouse for some St. Patrick’s Day fun. We heard about the singing and bag piper from his fiend and figured it would be a perfect night. We live right across the street and dine with you ever couple months. It’s consistently delicious! Keep it up!

Wow, Farmhouse farm to table is amazing! Each of us had a different entree. Chicken, Macaroni+ cheese, Beef short ribs, and duck schnitzel, all were the best meals each had had in the past month. Plus superior cider and a fun cocktail offering. Will go back for sure!

We’ve been wanting to try this place for a while now, but we were really disappointed by it. The menu, at first glance, looks great, but the execution of each item was not impressive. Would not recommend this place. There are much better places to go for brunch in the neighborhood.

There was nothing exceptional about the food, but the beers were amazing. They've got Cider drafts that offers a unique flavor profile. The service was prompt and the servers were really good and helpful. Not a lot of main course options if you are a vegetarian though.

Sister restaurant to Farm Bar in Lakeview, this place did not disappoint. The cocktails and beer list are wonderful and inventive. They focus all menu items on local selections, and the staff prides themselves on knowledge of the menu and sources. All the food was great, and the vegetarian options were substantial. Loved the beet soup appetizer - I CRAVE that daily now!
