Would suggest dine it. Its a blast from the past, but the food was made to last. Everything is great from the chicken to the steaks. Double down on the corn fritters.

Winner winner on the chicken dinner. But the last two times we went service was lousy. When you order, count your chicken pieces. Both times we were supposed to get 8 pieces but only received 7. Had to flag down our waiter for refills on water and some sides. Also had to flag down waiter to get our bill. Not... More

Love the family style serving style of this restaurant. The cold bean salad and cole slaw is the best... wish they had this available for pick up. (the cole slaw they sever in the restaurant is oil based, the take out kind is creamy)

Country food served family style. Love the cold bean salad and coleslaw. My favorite is the hush puppies. YumYum. And the chicken has a great delicious flavor. None better. Browse the car museum and see the petting zoo out back for the kiddos.

This place was a bit frightening from the get go, with an empty cavernous waiting room, it got less scary as we walked the labyrinth to get to the hostess. It smelled like a goodwill married a grandma's house. The "lighter menu" offered 2 chicken strips for $13, because of the all you can eat "relishes" which consisted of sweet... More

Hadn't been here in quite a few areas but we headed out to have their Chicken once again. It did not disappoint!! We all went with the chicken dinner and it came out hot with a light crisp crust just like always. It was juicy, delicious and they will bring you more sides as you want. The hush puppies are...

White Fence farm, has been in business since the 20's. It serves family style chicken dinners with all the trimmings. You start with corn fritters, then cold slaw, beets, cottage cheese, and bean salad. Then you order. The restaurant has seating for 1000, so there is never a wait. The staff is great, the food is great, and the price... More

So you come here for chicken right? I really think we come here because we have all these years and you come for corn fritters, bean salad, beets and you forget how much you love cottage cheese! Service is great, chicken is great family style but they need to revamp the place it looks like a haunted house!

First off, I'm not impressed. The service was solid - we finished our small portions of salads and cut beets quickly, and they were refilled. The chicken was served hot and was tasty. The broiled fish was served hot. It had that "I'm not fresh" "fish smell" that required liberal doses of lemon and tartar sauce to drown for two... More

Love it, excellent food. It is usually an older crowd of senior citizens because many locals who have lived in this area for a long time like to return. But fast service, good food, and just a staple of this area. I always leave very satisfied.
