While visiting here, a friend brought me to The Farmhouse for lunch; the old farmhouse is 'inside' the building, but it feels like it is a real house, with 2nd story dormers and the like. Also, a big John Deere tractor in the lobby! The catfish was really good and the service was the same; I hope to come back... More

Right next to Loves travel Stop. The restaurant has plenty of parking for big trucks and folks with pickups and trailers. Ordered a cheeseburger and it was liked cooked at home. Service was good and price was comparable to other restaurants.

On a spur of the moment, hubby and I decided to come here last Wednesday to check out the no. 1 restaurant in Van as rated in TripAdvisor. Upon entering, we were greeted with a huge Christmas tree and the place has a homey feel. We were seated right away and there were 2 other occupied tables on our side... More

We went as a group because this place was said to be one the best in the area. Maybe the expectations were too high going in. But on a Saturday night at 630-700 I would have expected them to not have a rookie waiter trying to serve a group of 20 by himself (as well as 8 other tables). The... More

This is like a Cracker Barrel restaurant without the store. Just a Mom & Pop place with delicious home cooking. The open faced chicken fried steak was unbelievable. My wife had the smothered steak and said it was wonderful. Don't leave without trying the chocolate pie. The meringue is 3 to 4 inches tall. We will be back.

While traveling through, we read the reviews and decided to stop here for lunch. My husband enjoyed his chicken fried steak sandwich and I enjoyed the chicken fried steak with fries. Lupita was our attentive waitress. Our food came out quickly, hot and as ordered. We'd stop hear again, for sure!

Meatloaf (daily special) was a little dry. Seemed devoid of juice and flavor. On the other hand the Monte Cristo sandwich (also daily special) was delicious. Served with sweet potato fries which I dip in mayo. Enough food for two meals. We took it home for the next day. Great Buttermilk pecan pie, devoured there. Take a look at the... More

Great food starting with homemade yeast rolls, fluffy & tasty. Chicken fried chicken best around. Catfish is also good. Pies are piled high with meringue and as delicious as they look. Fun, friendly atmosphere.

The Farmhouse was a definite surprise! We stopped here just by chance, we were going to eat at the chain restaurant next door but saw this place and decided to try it. So glad we did, turned out to be one of the best breakfasts we have ever had bar none!!!! The food was a little slow arriving to the... More

Stopped in for breakfast while passing through on a Saturday. This is a country style restaurant with a great decor, pleasant folks, and a great breakfast. Hands down better than a national chain diner, if you are in the area and looking for a great cafe style meal, I recommend.
