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.

    My family dined at The Farmhouse on Saturday, 4/13 and had such a wonderful time. The service was top notch and our server was Vincent. He was truly fantastic. He provided great suggestions and was very attentive and so pleasant to chat with. The food and drinks were incredible! I would highly suggest going if you are in the area and want a great meal and experience. We hope to make our way back soon!

    The 8 of us dined at The Farmhouse for a VT Parent Weekend event. The restaurant was able to accommodate our crew very comfortably with excellent service. The farm to table food was perfection in a plate and look forward to our next visit in the future. So fun!

    Sigh. Had such high hopes, visiting from out of town. Sadly, very disappointed. Food was….okay. Nothing wrong with it — though served tepid, not hot. But mostly, it took an hour for only 2 of us to get a simple meal. Our server was pleasant and checked on us — perhaps a bit infrequently— but the wait was ridiculous. And we were there at 4:15pm b/c we had someplace to be by 6:00pm.

    Great restaurant and kind of unique as it’s an old farmhouse from early days. Food was good, buffet was great just could look a lil more extravagant as it seemed a lil ole fashion. Drinks were good. Server was excellent.

    We were a party of 7 for Easter Brunch. First, our server, Jamie, was dressed in bunny ears, and was fun, efficient, and entertaining. How could you ask for more? The one thing I thought was a requirement for an Easter buffet is a carving station, and praise be! They did not disappoint. Moreover, they had rare and medium rare, so I was happy. Also, my favorite vegetable is spinach and their creamed spinach is pretty great. The appetizers .. huge shrimp and deviled eggs.. my money well spent. Good job, guys!

    Great place for a nice dinner. Love the individual booth set up which makes it like a private dining experience. We had prime rib which was perfect. Great wedge salad that we split. Banana pudding and chocolate mouse torte for dessert... hmm good.

    We were in town for our daughter’s soccer tournament. Had read the good reviews online so decided to go to The Famrhouse on our first night. My husband and I both got the filets which were perfectly seasoned and cooked. Portion sizes were smaller but enough for us. Left enough room for desert which was excellent. We enjoyed our meal so much that we went back again the next night for dinner again.

    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.
