The service was some of the best I have ever had (not sure whether this is normal there, but was our experience). The food selection was great and the meals were very tasty.

We had to wait 20 minutes for our table. Not so bad And our waitress told is that the beer my wife just finished before we were seated hadn't been on tap all day. Just weird. Other than that. The food was great. Excellent burgers. Excellent beer selection. Reasonably priced.

An unbelievable selection of local beers. The meatloaf had a density of flavors that was creative that complimented each other perfectly . The potatoes were smooth, creamy and the vegetables were done perfectly.

The food was excellent, the wine list however, not so much. I think they are really catering to local breweries. I asked for a modified meal (no dairy) and they were accommodating. I highly recommend.

I had the most delicious burger I have ever eaten here. It was coated with a nice layer of creamy cheese and served with accompanying condiments. I like that they offer the option of a salad or French fries. Good service.

This is an excellent go to restaurant in Burlington. The wait is usually quick if there is one. Amazing farm to table food and a simple menu. Get the cheese plate as a starter! The downstairs bar is a greeat place to taste beers from around the globe. Good place to wait for a table at the restaurant.

The food and drinks were outstanding and the service was amazingly prompt, particularly for a Friday night I would not believe how quickly our food arrived and how fresh and tasty it was.

I live in Burlington, and I frequent this restaurant almost every week. It's local, unique, and perfectly located. I strongly recommend The Farmhouse, it's location in downtown Burlington is pristine, the people and service are both sublime!

I don't eat meat and my husband does. We both found something unique and delicious to order off the menu. I had a veggie burger and he had meatloaf. There was no wait at 6 p.m. They were out of the beer my husband wanted, but the waiter directed us to other places in town we could buy it.
