I had the catfish, mac and cheese, and pinto beans. They were great. Restrooms were clean, as was the restaurant in general. The waitress was awesome, and even brought some beans to try before ordering. And the rolls are huge and warm! Highly recommended.

For starters we were one of two sets of people in the restaurant, should have great service right? Wrong! Immediately placed our orders only to sit and watch it on the window waiting to be delivered to us for over 10 minutes. At least it wasnt completely cold by the time it got to us. The "breaded spicy chicken sandwich"... More

pretty good food. Senior choices are only fried food, they should include more healthy choices for seniors...some a bit pricey..but the best rolls ever...good enough to wait for.

Just one of those random stops we make for food and discovered a gem. The breakfast was excellent and you have to have the smokey bacon!

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.
