Farmhouse - Evanston
The menu ingredients are harvested from local farmers and change with the Midwestern seasons. Farmhouse offers locally sourced, pastured raised burgers, steaks, and poultry and makes almost everything from scratch on premise. We are a green tavern. 85% of the building materials, furniture and fixtures were salvaged from old barns in Southwestern Wisconsin and an abandoned factory on Chicago's South Side.

The waiter was a little slow or forgetful. He seemed like he didn’t know everything on the menu. My 82 year old aunt and 65 year old cousin immediately said it was too loud inside restaurant. Chicken vegetable soup was very good. Potato soup and salad a little too heavy on the bacon bits.
Great food, vibe, outdoor space, location and service.
Great Food! Great Location! Service was slow and we never seemed to have a waiter!
Moving son into Northwestern and chose Farmhouse for breakfast. Service good and food was mediocre.
Fantastic food. Excellent service
Food was meh
As always, Farmhouse Evanston did not disappoint. Great drinks and food in a welcoming atmosphere.
We were disappointed with Farmhouse mostly because the food, while tasty, was barely warm when we received it. I ordered the eggs Benedict and the Bollain daisy sauce was superb with a dash of savory lemon flavor. But who want to eat cold eggs? Also the potatoes were very flavorful, but again the meal was cold. My partner ha the biscuits and gravy with nice chorizo. In er case the combination of a flavorful chorizo with a sweet biscuit was not a good fit. The ambiance was appropriate to the theme and only a few patrons were there.
I really appreciated how receptive the servers were during my solo birthday lunch. They were attentive to when I needed my water refilled, when I just wanted to sit on my phone, when I was just gazing outside, etc. I also really appreciated that they didn't make me feel weird about having a solo birthday lunch. Food was good, but the service was lovely.
Great brunch choices. Service was spot on. Area we sat in was very warm which was uncomfortable.
My husband has been here for dinner before but this was our first time having brunch. We were really excited about the menu as it seemed to be hearty takes on classic fare. Unfortunately, the food didn't feel like it was prepared as well as it could have been. The apple cider donuts were cold and a little soggy, the bavarian pretzel was great, but we both had the open faced breakfast sandwich and there wasn't a big enough difference in textures on the sandwich for it to not feel really mushy when eating it. That said, our server Dustin was great and we would be willing to give it another go.
Had some good drinks at the bar, but the bartender spilled a shaker on my friend - cleaned it up and said sorry but did not offer to clean up her dress or her shoes. Then at the dinner table, It took it all least 30 minutes to get our first drink, and the waiter seemed disinterested and as though he had a chip on the shoulder. The food was good, but the service took so much away from the experience. Not sure I’d recommend or visit again
We sat outside on a nice day and enjoyed our salads and entrees.
I enjoyed the food but thought it was quite overpriced. Service was excellent, and the atmosphere was pleasant.
Great spot for lunch out on the patio. Delicious and fresh food, nice staff.
My friend and I had different salads and the greens tasted old, dry and wilted. I would never eat there again.
Was there for a weekday breakfast, and the food was really superb. The coffee was also terrific. Definitely worth going to if you're in the area.
Had a very enjoyable meal, server was excellent, food was very good and lived up to their hype. Only complaint is that the outdoor furniture is not really sturdy.
I loved the locally sourced meals, more restaurants need to take on this trend. Relaxing atmosphere and hospitable servers, I would highly recommend it.
Expensive for the quality of food and service. Orders were mixed up, not a great attention to the minimal needs of our table....pepper for instance.
Took my parents and they can’t stop raving! Loved the salad and special bread and butter, loved the barramundi, loved the burger, loved the doughnuts- coffee was delish. We want early and it was a bit louder that I expected but it worked out fine. Dimmed the lights after my mom commented how bright it was- really nice of them:)!
Thank you for a great experience. The food was great and our waiter was perfect!
Love the interior! Healthy & Fresh! Love everything on the menu! We eat outside this time, it was really nice.
Always enjoy my time at this restaurant !
We dined outside, and everything (and everyone) was wonderful!
Yes- though I would warn about the slow service! Perhaps I would recommend going for drinks only at the bar... Our server did not seem at all concerned about our table in any regard. It was hard to flag him down to take even our drink order or get more water! It was a warm evening on the patio, water shouldn’t run dry. He never once dropped by to ask our our food was. It’s not a cheap place to eat, so the value of the food seems to greatly diminish with terrible customer service
HI have been to Farmhouse many times and always enjoyed it, but this time was a complete disaster. Our table was not ready until 25 mins after the reservation, despite there being plenty of tables - all un-bused. We waited another 20 mins for a server to come take our drink order. Apps were served and long gone by the time 4/5 drinks arrived, and then it took another 15 mins for a server to some tell us drink #5 was not coming because they were out of the whiskey. No plates or silverware was served with the apps, and no one would come help us, so I had to get up and help myself to them from the busing station....up until then, we thought it was a staffing problem. Then our wine appeared in tiny, overfilled glasses, because they apparently broke all of their regular glasses? And when the food arrived it was just horrible - my steak (the most expensive thing on the menu) was way overcooked, the gratin potatoes were a brown, dry and shriveled hockey puck, the broccoli so bitter it was inedible. My husband's salad was totally undressed...we would have complained, but no one ever came back to the table. We had to stand up for someone to come give us the bill. Maybe it was just a bad night, but I will NEVER go back.
Very fresh and interesting food in a charming ambience.
Sat outside. Very nice seating area. Food was outstanding. Had the flatbread & dumplings for appetizer. Both were great. I had the braised short ribs. It was a “10.” Can’t wait to go back & order it again.
The salad ingredients were very fresh and delicious and the service was excellent, Taylor took care of us and she was friendly, pleasant and had great attention to detail.
Nice ambiance, limited menu, poor service, chicken dinner not to my liking.
Pretty mediocre food and not very friendly service. Won’t be back again for a long time.
Excellent! Our party of six was seated promptly, service was prompt, and the food arrived after an appropriate time and was delicious. Rigitoni and grass fed beef burger were especially good, as were Tavern fries cooked in ramp oil, and interesting and tasty change.
Limited but interesting enough menu. Fun appetizers that you could really turn into a meal. Excellent burgers. Nice wine and beer list. Friendly and efficient service.
Lovely restaurant, great service and food was good. I thought the menu options were lacking in some healthy options so was limited by choice. They don’t have soy milk if you like soy in your coffee. They do have almond milk though but it’s not my thing. I arrived at 10:30 and it was calm and peaceful but then it got super rowdy near 11:30am. I’m not sure if it was just the one noisy table who lifted the noise level or if it is always that noisy when there are more people dining. The ambience (aside from noise level) was great.
The air conditioning wasn’t working well downstairs-and it was so hot, so we asked to be moved upstairs where it was surprisingly cooler. Food was ok and service was fair.
Food was great! There were three of us there for brunch and I sampled all the entrees. The open faced breakfast sandwich was outstanding made with a thick delicious slice of French brioche toast with bacon and a fried egg topped with green sprouts for brightness. The vegetable scramble was excellent and included squash and asparagus, very flavorful. Last the breakfast skillet was fairly typical but still good. The pork sausage was very good. Only issue which was pretty significant on the hottest day of the year, 95 degrees, the air was not completely off but barely working so it was a bit uncomfortable inside. I would go back again but not before checking on the AC if it were during summer!
Not a refreshing place to be on a hot day. It was so hot in there several people including myself were using the menus to fan themselves including some of the waitresses.
We booked a high-top table but none were available when we got there.
We were able to get a last minute reservation and walked into a rustic casual atmosphere.
Food was pretty good but there were a lot of flies flying around the table which was annoying as well as unsanitary. Overall a good experience.
