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 average. Starters and dessert better than mains. At 6:30 they were out of Prime rib and steak. The physical location was so interesting with private booths and art.

    It was a nice atmosphere and a great date night spot. 10/10 desserts. Great service. Only blemish is the prime rib is simply not worth the price, very tough and chewy. The Cajun pasta was 10/10 however.

    An excellent place for Valentines. Each meal could feed two. We split a very good Wedge salad, the grilled pork chops in a bourbon glaze (two large chops!) were tasty, and the prime rib was done to perfection. We somehow squeezed in dessert. The service was top notch, and it was a quiet place to enjoy a meal to ourselves. Highly recommended.

    Great place for a Date! We did the dining side which is quiet with great service, although the bar looks like a place that will be fun with friends! Food was good (not amazing), plating was awesome, and our waitress was very good! Pricey but it’s good to do that sometimes. Also, if you like seafood… this the place for you.

    The filet wasn’t as good as it has been in the past. Crab cakes were fair. If the were made with jumbo crabmeat you couldn’t see it. Sweet potato fries were good.

    This was our second visit to the Farmhouse. First experience was amazing….this visit, not so much. Service at first was excellent, then dropped off exponentially. Long times between visits to table and food delivery. Had 3 in our party. One meal (Filet) was pretty good along with the sides. The other two meals (Prime Rib and Chicken) were very disappointing. Chicken was very dry; and the prime rib was extremely tough and unappetizing. Overall, disappointed based on meal prices.The prime rib at our first experience was phenomenal….not sure how such a different experience is possible. Would like to return, but not sure at this point.

    The Farmhouse is a legendary restaurant that our family has visited several times for special Virginia Tech related occasions. Normally the food and service are outstanding but today for Sunday brunch both were a little lacking. We will still be back as we consider this an unusual lapse.

    Ordered salmon , med rare. Was grossly overcooked! Service was excellent. Husband had prime rib that was not very tender! Need to order better cut of meat and improve the chef’s cooking skills.
    The FarmhouseResponded on January 27, 2024
    We hear you loud and clear and appreciate you letting us know. We are in full agreement that overcooked salmon is especially hard to eat. We put our everything into food and service and hate to hear it was a subpar experience. With the prime rib, sometimes the loins aren't as tender as we want and we will return loins to our supplier if it's not up to par. I just want to let you know we've addressed the issues you've mentioned and moved forward to further mitigate these kinds of issues in the future. I am very happy your server did great, though I wish we could've fixed the situation immediately rather than after the fact.

    Outstanding dinner. It was our anniversary and our server got us a complementary dessert, which was really nice. The filet was excellent, but my wife's chicken fried chicken had a little too much pepper in the gravy.

    Quiet ambiance which is nice so long as you don't have a loud mouth swearing person one stall (booth) over. Service was sparse, the kind of thing where you jump out of your chair if the server walks by to make sure you don't miss your chance. All of that said, the food was very good and, while expensive for the New River Valley, I felt it was priced reasonably.

    It was a bitter cold night celebrating our anniversary, but the warmth and ambiance at The Farmhouse offered a quiet and private booth for an intimate dining experience. Our steaks were done to perfection. We started with a generous serving of onion rings (outstanding) and ended by sharing a crème brûlée (delicious, but skimpy portion). The size of the dessert did not diminish our experience and we will definitely return. Kudos to our server, Robert who was gracious and attentive.

    Prime rib is always amazing. The little dinner rolls are so good. Our server was amazing. She checked on us often (you could get hidden in the little private booths) and always made sure our beverages were full. She was a delight! The young man who delivered our food was very kind as well.

    It was date night for me and my husband. He had the 14 ounce ribeye and proclaims it is the best he’s had in the states and only rivaled the previous championing spring bok from South Africa. As for me, I ordered the vegetarian fettuccini and it is the best I have ever had in a restaurant establishment. So many flavors burst forth and there’s the coziness of the garlic to really round out the ensemble. For dessert, I eagerly devoured the delicious limoncello mascarpone but I wish it could be a larger slice. To be fair, I wish that of all desserts! The waitstaff were accommodating and professional. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The restroom was exceptionally clean. We will definitely dine here again!
