This is always a great option. Food is fresh, and delicious. Only have dined there once.. It's an old world feeling inside with many vintage items to view. Service is friendly and efficient. One must try the corn fritters!! Not for the diet conscious..

Let me start by saying that the food is very good and the portions are large. That said, I am not the target customer. The decor, staff, and menu offerings are clearly for an older clientele. The dining rooms are a little drab and out dated and the showcase area is quaint. That said, the chicken and sides are excellent.

Over all food was good, but my wife ask for only white meat and White Fence does not allow changing the menu. Whereas Applewood will, but charge you $2.00 more. The $2.00 is worth it, happy wife , happy life. There gravy looked greenish and moved like Jell-O. I did taste it and can not describe what the heck it... More

The original owner of this long time favorite in the Southwest Chicago Suburbs found a way to cook fried chicken in large batches and bring it to the table just like it came from the fryer. The corn fritters are almost like having a desert, they are that good. Their other hidden gem is their fish and shrimp, just as... More

We stopped at White Fence Farm Restaurant for dinner after an earlier golf outing The restaurant is huge, with seating for hundreds. The fried chicken dinners were very good. The chicken dinner is served family style and you start with corn fritters, then cold slaw, beets, cottage cheese, and bean salad. Everyone had the chicken and no one was disappointed.... More

We do not need a menu when we go to White Fence Farm. Chicken dinner. Always good and the service is good. Every year we host a banquet there and our guests rave about the food. the food comes out hot and plenty of fixins on the side. Love the corn fritters. Never a complaint from us.

Lived here for over 20 yrs and heard many commercials so we went for a 90 minute trip (each way) to check this out. For all that we had heard, it was disappointing. Venue is charming, quite large to accommodate hundreds, many antique artifacts and collectibles to view, service was great, complimentary sides were delicious, but "maiin event" - the... More

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
