We have visited the Farmhouse many times over the last 4 years. Just off exit 540 on the north side is the restaurant filled with country living charm. Favorites: iced tea, fantastic dessert pies and cobblers, burgers, grilled chicken, Cobb Salad, soups and fresh baked rolls !! The breakfast are excellent as well. They don't serve breakfast on Sunday, Sunday... More

We stopped here are using the "Nearby" feature on TripAdvisor while passing through. The food is good. Tastes homemade and the Country Breakfast was a generous portion. We also got the Breakfast Burrito which didn't come with salsa so we had to ask which leads me to the service. The hostess was welcoming however the waitress seemed overworked with 3-4... More

Heading home, saw a Sonic sign and decided to get a drink. But before we got there The Farmhouse just jumped out at us. The staff were friendly and our server went out of her way to be helpful and answer all questions. After taking our drink orders two very large rolls were delivered. The man of the house made...

If you're just driving through or live in the area, this is a fine restaurant. The catfish is excellent and the rolls are delicious. Everything tasted fresh and flavorful. Friendly service and the farmhouse feel made it even better. Save room for pie, mouthwatering!

Coffee was hot. Staff was nice. Started out with a wonderfully fresh roll. Highly recommend the Red, White and Blue salad. It makes for two meals! Generous portions for the price.

The Farmhouse has good food and decent service. The catfish is very good and they offer a good selection of side dishes. It is just off the interstate and easy to get to and worth the stop if you are traveling through East Texas.

The Farmhouse has great food, nice atmosphere and great service! This was a great surprise for our stay in Van, Tx. The chicken fried steak was the best I have had in a restaurant in a long time. You will not be sorry if you eat at the Farmhouse Restaurant!!

A must stop off the interstate. Excellent homemade rolls and just good 'ole fashioned southern cooking. The chicken and dumplings satisfied my soul. Also, tried the fried catfish. All superb!

By chance, I pulled into the restaurant with co-workers en route to a destination for work. It was a success with everyone in our group. The décor is country/Texas with varying old farm implements decorating the walls. The service was competent and friendly enough and the food was delicious. We had dishes varying from chicken fried steak to chopped steak... More
