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.

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.

A family member had recommended Farmhouse as a great place to eat when in the area. We were quite disappointed. We were seated promptly and when our drinks were delivered our waiter brought us two HUGE homemade yeast rolls. YUMMY!! It went south after that. My chicken fried steak was OK but not the best I've ever had. My wife's... More

I had the fried catfish, which I enjoyed. Also tried the pecan buttermilk pie, and was not disappointed. Nice atmosphere, with a model train running above the dining area.

Convenient to the interstate, friendly service, and good food; a hard combination to beat. We had the chicken salad, liver and onions, cheeseburger, black-eyed pea salad, grilled asparagus, and some excellent made-from-scratch rolls. Everything we had was very good.

Not only is the food good, the owners and employees are the best. We eat there as a group of 9 once a week. They are always great there.
