The restaurant did not acknowledge our anniversary at all even though it was noted on our reservation. The server took our drink order, appetizer order, and dinner order all separately instead of all at once.

Ribeye was disappointing, a very thin cut and a lot of gristle for a steak that pricey

Food was delicious. Our service, however, was poor. Usually great service, so we will try it again. Be forewarned, many diners walked through the dining room without wearing masks, although a sign at the host stand clearly states that masks are required. Hoping the restaurant enforces mask wearing to keep all diners safe.

Overall we had a pleasant experience. Food was descent. For the price I would have expected it to be excellent. Cheese curds were good! My husband enjoyed the Cajun pasta. I had the Butter pecan chicken and it was a tad dry. We had a very friendly server. She refilled our adult drinks, but never refilled our kids drinks even when asked. We were seated at 7PM and didn’t receive our food until almost 8:15PM. There was maybe 3 other parties of people in the restaurant. Thankfully we ordered 2 appetizers which helped keep our kids at bay. We were celebrating a birthday and we were given a nice sign and complimentary cake and ice cream. So sweet. We are members and showed our card to receive our discount. Noticed later we were never given our discount. Stopped by the next day and were given a gift card as a refund and a complimentary appetizer for next time. I’m willing to give it another try & I do recommend experiencing it at least once.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Farm House Restaurant. Definitely recommend the pork belly appetizer and french onion soup. I had the butter pecan chicken and it was delicious, the sauce was wonderful.

Excellent food, freshly prepared, locally sourced (some from their own farm), in a quiet socially distanced setting. The fried chicken and meatloaf are superb. The restaurant has adapted well for Covid 19 with tables 10 feet apart, gloves and masks on servers, etc.

This was my first time eating here but I had heard it was a nice place to eat. While we didn't explore the whole restaurant because it is so large with multiple rooms, it was an attractive atmosphere on the inside and the outside. The complimentary bread was a tasty but small yeast roll per person. The menu isn't very large or cheap. My date had a salad that she liked which was very large. I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf which wasn't as large of a portion but was still tasty. The service was at least standard. The ambience is definitely included in the price. Overall, it is good for a once in a while meal but not very often.

The restaurant is impressive, the staff was wonderful, friendly and helpful. My only suggestion would be to have the market price items prices readily available. My son was shocked his steak was $80. That would be the only negative.

The bacon sampler appetizer is not at all what we were expecting- it was thick slices of pork belly to be more accurate. It was not crisp- and not in typical of what a everyday consumer would expect to be bacon. We ordered our kids meals first and that took nearly 25 minutes - tough for toddlers. Our server was delightful and checked in frequently. The pork tenderloin sandwich was ok, still a bit tough and not anything to write home about. The pizza and kids buttered noodles were big hits, as were the bread and butter brought to the table. Sadly, our child was injured walking into a plexiglass barrier- the new covid norm. The barrier was larger than the table with unfinished edges. My sons eye was just missed, but he had a gouge on his head. I would go back, but perhaps for more of an entree style vs sandwich.

Food was excellent, service great, too. It’s alittle expensive but there is no where else to eat if you stay in the hotel unless you want to drive a long distance. We could not sit together as a family because there were 8 of us. These Covid 19 rules are over the top. We could not move tables either.

The wait staff was wonderful. Food was great, appetizer was expensive but good.
Overall, happy with our meal. We are from NW Indiana and met some friends from Southern Indiana, it was a great middle point to meet and enjoy several hours of food and conversation. Thank you!

High top table means the bar. They did not explain that & so we had people in our group under 21. So we had to wait about 10 minutes for a different table. The food was great. Service could have been better with refills on beverages, but very friendly.

The Farmhouse is a beautiful spot! The service is was great, and the simple touch of a birthday card for my daughter was perfect! For a family of six the price was a bit high, but we were prepared coming in, however a few of us felt our food was not quite worth the price we paid. We enjoyed our time and will be back.

An average meal and an average restaurant, but Chicago five-star prices. Disappointing.
