Don't pass up the Farmhouse for breakfast. Simply outstanding!! Nice buffet on the weekends, great portions off the menu and very reasonable.

We were traveling through central Illinois and found this restaurant right on Hwy 16 near the Shelbyville Lake dam for a lunch stop. There was a lunch buffet including salad bar offered for $5.99, but we opted to order off the menu. Lots of locals...More

Though the place was not at all busy it took well over 5 minutes for anyone to notice we'd seated ourselves (as instructed when we entered). Once we ordered the food came fast. It was an okay breakfast and the price was right.

This is a mom and pop breakfast and lunch restaurant. It is good size with great parking right on the highway. They offer a weekend breakfast buffet and an everyday lunch buffet. Closes about 2pm. Food and serve is good.

Food was good BUT my server I was not happy with. My coffee cup had a Crack in it and I asked for a different cup. I had the cup sitting near the edge of the table. It sat there the whole time we ate....More

Just the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff made me give this restaurant a 5-star rating. The food (breakfast buffet) was just average but the staff was incredible...fun and helpful.
