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.

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.

The last trip I had open faced chicken fried steak and gravy with grilled asparagus and Fried squash. Topped it off with a slice of Pecan buttermilk pie. Whooo Weee!! Now... More

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.

This is a hard review to write as we had both a worst and a best in the same meal. We stopped in for breakfast and after tasting the coffee, which was the worst I have ever tasted, we were really concerned about the rest of the meal. We hoped a fresh refill would be better but again the worst... More

The times we have eaten here the food is always good. The rolls are really good. I like the vegetables. For dinner I would get there a little early since it tends to get crowded.
