A favorite Southwest Virginia landmark, The Farmhouse Restaurant has served the New River Valley since 1963. The authentic farm house, originally part of the Ridinger Estate, was build in the 1800's.

In the early 1970's, an old train caboose was added to provide a unique dining area. During the past decade, a rustic lounge, additional dinner seats, and a spacious 250-seat Banquet Facility have added to the charm of The Farmhouse.

    Food was wonderful. i had the filet and it was cooked perfectly medium rare. My husband had the prime rib and he said it was really good. The sides were delicious, too. Our server, Matt, was so nice and helpful. We haven't been to the Farmhouse for a while but we will certainly go back again soon.

    Food was good as per our previous experience. However, the service was terrible. We had a waiter that was apparently new; the kitchen staff brought out our food and rolled their eyes when we asked for steak knives and said that our waiter was "green". While I understand that, there should have been a senior waiter looking over him if that was the case. We had to hound him for things like water which was brought to us after the fourth ask. We like The Farmhouse and will very likely return in the future. Hopefully the service will improve in that time.

    The Farmhouse is an established restaurant in the lovely mountains of the Christianburg- Blacksburg area. The service was professional and pleasant, and our waiter was able to answer questions regarding menu items. My husband had the Shrimp and Grits which he found perfectly spiced with just the right amount of heat. I had a salad with flavorful shaved sirloin. It was fresh and the blue cheese dressing awesome. We had Flirtini cocktails before dinner that were perfectly prepared and did I mention the yeast rolls? The outdoor space is inviting and there are numerous tables inside that provide private dining options. The only thing I would change is the carpet. I’m not a fan of carpet in public places like restaurants. We look forward to dining there again when we are in the area.

    Context is important and fine dining options in Christiansburg/ Blacksburg, VA are limited, so, The Farmhouse was good, but... Eager young server on his 3rd day needed to be coached a little, but was a great person. Appetizers were pre-made and not so fresh. Main and sides were generous but overcooked and salted/ seasoned. 'Horsey sauce' had developed a crust on top and may have sat out in the air too long. Best parts were deserts with large bread pudding and Carrot Cake and outside terrace.

    The food was outstanding, and the service top line. However, the price on mixed drinks was a rip off. My advice to wouldbe diners is to heed the words of my father: "Get a drink at home before going to the restaurant and then do iced tea once there. Drinks at the restaurant are only for suckers. It's where they play you for a fool."

    We returned to The Farmhouse on a busy Tuesday evening. Our experience was outstanding. We note improvement in service and food with each successive visit. Adam was an attentive server. He skillfully staged the arrival of each course. We enjoyed The Farmhouse's trademark onion rings as an appetizer, wedge, filets, baked potatoes, and vegetable sides. The filets were perfectly prepared and tasty. Only disappointment was not being able to dine outside on the patio because of an event. We are pleased that the quality is now consistently outstanding. We will return.

    The Farmhouse interior is very interesting - a bunch of small, individually enclosed dining areas so that you have a lot of privacy and can enjoy a conversation without feeling like you have to talk over everyone else around you. The wait staff appeared pronto. The menu is varied without being too extensive and offers something for everyone: chicken, pork, fish, beef, vegetarian. The drinks menu was quite nice. My husband ordered the pork and enjoyed it very much. Cooked through just right and with the right amount of gravy. The whipped potatoes were a little dry. I ordered the bourbon salmon. Our food came literally within a few minutes of the order. Unfortunately, my salmon was slightly overcooked and not hot so I alerted the waiter who took it back to the kitchen. They brought me an entirely new plate that was just the right temp with the salmon cooked correctly this time. We liked it so much we went back later that evening for dessert after an event we had to attend. Note- They do not have any ice cream other than vanilla. That was disappointing. Hubby had the chocolate mousse cake which he really liked. I had a glass of wine in lieu of ice cream :). Would definitely go again.

    Loved the space! Excellent indoor and outdoor seating option. We enjoyed the booth indoors. Food was mediocre. Do not order sautéed mushrooms. They arrived late to the table in a tiny silver cup cold and marinated in vinegar. Not edible.Server did not remove from our bill.

    Our reservation was for 5:15. We arrive on time and we’re told they are running a few minutes behind. After a 50 minute wait, we were finally seated. After we ordered, we were told they just ran out of prime rib and we needed to come up with an alternative. We did, and our food was dry, overcooked, and overpriced. Very, very disappointed. We will not go back

    Mother’s Day dinner. Food was excellent. The Prime Rib was incredible. Everything was cooked as requested. Prices were increased a bit for Mother’s Day. Service was good considering they were extremely busy. I would expect somewhat better service on another occasion. Over all, a very good experience.
