Good place to eat if you are hungry!

We have been going to eat at Friendly Farm for decades. It is an excellent value if you have several small kids because the children's prices are very low. We went a lot when our kids were small. If there is a wait, the kids can visit the ducks and geese on their ponds next to the restaraunt... read more

We dined on Saturday for the last day of the Baltimore County Restaurant Week where we had a wonderful meal with good friends on a beautiful evening. We love this place where you get a wide selection of entrees along with lots of side dishes preceded by a nice spread of hors d'oeuvres. Their Crab Cakes top our list and... More

We went on a Sunday and waited on the porch until they opened at noon. Service was fast and the food was delicious! Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. We had crabcakes, fried chicken and broiled scallops. All were excellent. The sugar rolls are yummy. The coleslaw and green beans with ham were good! We also had in season... More

We ate dinner here with our son and daughter in law.the fried chicken dinner was very good.we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table.they do not take reservations.its very crowded on a Sunday. I wish that they served mashed potatoes instead of French fries for the side dish. Nice view if you sit near the windows.

A friend and I went to Friendly Farms. The restaurant is located on a farm and the view was wonderful., The food was very fresh and the I was surprised of the amount of food and the price. I am glad I took the ride. I plan to visit again and tell others.

Dinner at Friendly Farms is a must for us during our annual trip to Maryland!! The kids love the family style meal (tons of side dishes!!). The food is amazing and the atmosphere is fun. Ice cream is served after dinner too! Love this place!

For almost two decades, I have been bringing family and friends to this old favorite in the lovely hill country of Northern Baltimore County. Not even once have I been disappointed. The menu doesn't change much, though there are seasonal favorites like Fried Oysters ( not to be missed!). The servers for the family-style meals are consistently wonderful, though I... More

Food is always great at FF. Price for crab cakes seem to rise with every visit. Chicken is always delicious.
