If you plan on going to Mike's, I'd recommend skipping lunch that day ;) The food is served family style and they will bring you as much as you can eat. The biscuits are first, very tasty and there are some in the basket with country ham slices in them. I could fill up on just those. Then they bring you fried chicken, pork tenderloin, Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and a vegetable. It is all delicious. I could eat my body weight in Mac and Cheese, but I don't because I know that the dessert is incredible too. There is always something yummy on the dessert cart. Everything is scratch made and the sweet tea never runs out. You can't go wrong here.

We went for the Christmas lights and it was beautiful. Unfortunately we could not experience the restraunt due to zero reservation availabilities and the restraunt does not take walk ins sun-wed. Other days require hours of waiting...not good if u have small children.

We took our family to the farm on the 2nd to last Saturday before Christmas. We had tried to call for an entire week, but the phone was always busy; probably taken off the hook. Got there early in the day and still had a 2-1/2 hour wait to get into the restaurant. We bought tickets and were told we couldn't select a time for the hayride; it was first come-first serve. There is really no petting farm since the animals are behind an electric fence except for the bunnies and chickens which you can't pet. Make sure you have quarters to buy corn which you can't hand feed to the animals; just have to drop through a chute. The whole "petting zoo" experience lasted about 20 minutes and then you have hours and hours of waiting. The gift shop is combined with the bakery and fudge shop and is so small you're elbow to elbow with others, trying to wind your way through it. MIKE: If you're such a Christian and such a patriot, you should think of your patrons; especially since you probably raked in about $30K to $40 the night we were there. If you care about others, you need to work out a reservation system. You really ruined our night and we never did get to go on the hayride because of the long lines. All of this could have been avoided. We were there from 3:30-7:30 and only got a sub-standard dinner (except the mac & cheese was good) to show for it. Everything was assembly line food... even the desserts. Our 4 year old granddaughter was sooooo disappointed to not go on the hayride (and our 9-month old was miserable with the long wait outside). When we got out of the restaurant at 7:30pm, the line for the hayride was seriously about 1/4 mile long and we would have had to wait another 1-1/2 to get on the hayride. You could do so much better by your patrons, but it seems you're only in it for you own convenience and money. You can't come up with a better system? Come on Mike... get real!!! NEVER AGAIN, and we will endeavor to tell others of our ordeal and protect them from the disappointment we experienced during what should be a lovely, family time of year! P.S. Get ready to pee in the backwoods because there’s a ¼ mile long line for the women’s bathrooms, too!!! COME ON MIKE!!!!

Have to hit up this restaurant every time we travel to visit friends in the area. The food is served family style, meaning they bring dishes to the table and you help yourself, and then you can ask for more! The food is like a home cooked meal: fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, green beans, etc. The atmosphere is great, like the inside of an old country barn. Service is always friendly. The cost is about $16 per person, so it is a bit pricey, but well worth it just for the experience. Expect to wait at least an hour in line on the weekends or during busy seasons, and bundle up because you wait outside.

I went to Mike's Farm for the first time with a group of family and friends in July 2011. I have to say the environment is charming, the store is quaint and filled with a lot of nice things, and the farm animals, such as they were, were enticing to the young children (be careful, however, the fence around the enclosure with the goats, llama and donkey is an operating electric fence and it is not protected in any way - seems like a law suit waiting to happen).

However, the purpose of going to Mike's Farm is to dine in their restaurant. It is VERY charming on the inside, nicely laid our and uses a creative decor Dinner cost $14.99 (plus tax and tip) and is served family style, and is all-you-can-eat and includes soft-drinks or sweet tea. No alcohol is served, at all, even for an additional price.

The menu is varied but set. Our meal started with a biscuit filled with a slice of the most dried out, over-cooked and tasteless ham I've ever had. The main course was fried chicken (very little meat on the chicken), pork (no one at our table ate more than one or two mouthfuls), what seemed to be canned corn and canned string beans (which were good, and were the highlight of the meal - which says a great deal about the quality of the food), very good macaroni n cheese, and mashed potato. Dessert was a choice of three items - I had the banana pudding, which was simple, made-from-a-box, but good.

The service was good, but the food just wasn't up to the standards of even a middle-of-the-road restaurant. I loved the environment, but unless they improve the food, I will not be going back.
