We came down from Clayton with friends and couldn't believe this beautiful restaurant tucked into the middle of nowhere, literally. You drove on a dirt road and crossed a stream before seeing it settled in a gorgeous valley. The food and service were amazing! The portion sizes were plentiful. We'll be back!

Had a wonderful dinner! I have been trying to have dinner here for over a year. Locally everyone has been raving about how great a restaurant it was. So glad I finally made it. Definitely will be back. Everything was prepared and presented beautifully. The Chateaubriand was the best I ever had anywhere. Staff was very attentive. Chef Vincent came... More

A hidden gem in the hills of GA. The chateaubriand with the mushroom sauce was all we could talk about on our way home....and the lobster tail was cooked to perfection.... Vince, you ARE a master in that kitchen. How you can turn out such great foods in that small kitchen is beyond me. I am looking forward to making... More

We were staying at a relative's house on Lake Burton. Decided to go out to eat which is rare. Most of the time we try gourmet cooking (not!) on our own lakeside. We are from Indianapolis, In and we really enjoyed the evening. The food was cooked to order with great wine pairings. The owner and chef came and talked... More

We were taken here by our boss for our company Christmas dinner. Honestly, this had been on my bucket list for awhile so I was super-excited to go. I was not disappointed in the least! The food was phenomenal! My husband and I both had the filet mignon with a cabernet glaze. It was literally the best piece of beef... More

I had heard and ready so many great reviews so 2 couples ventured up from Atlanta, a 2 hour drive, for dinner at The Farmhouse. I had scallops on parmesan risotto; my husband had a $48 steak. First the server was not familiar with the menu. We had to ask for bread. Then halfway through the meal we asked for... More

It always saddens me to know there is someone who didn't have an over the top experience at The Farmhouse. Although we work hard at our craft, I'll accept this review as a friendly reminder that our work in never finished and how body language speaks volumes. As you know, we have a great review history and will continue working... More

What a truly amazing restaurant. From start to finish an experience that was more than worth the two hour drive. Chef Vincent is an artist of epic proportion. My family and I were celebrating my Aunt's birthday and every year we pick a different place to go. This year we picked Farmhouse. I AM SO HAPPY WE DID! We had... More

We found rave reviews about The Farmhouse on Trip Advisor months ago, and stopped by while we were in town from FL. The restaurant was closed, but the owner came out and talked with us and invited us to come back next time we were in town. We made reservations months ahead of time, and were really looking forward to... More
