Well, I have to admit I was taken in by the location and 'coolness' of the deep woods surrounding this old building (ranch architecture, gravel parking around trees). Food, Not so much unfortunately. I am 58, so I lived through the 60s and 70s steakhouse restaurants with white iceberg lettuce salads and baskets of wrapped crackers with cheese spread and... More

Follow the winding road into the woods and visit the Farm House. Nothing fancy here just a nice rustic, dark, soothing, romantic atmosphere with well prepared steaks, fresh salads, and more. Been there many times without disappointment.

Our favorite place in town for years. Love the salads and always keep room for that amazing Farmhouse Pie dessert. I could almost make a meal out of the cheese, carrot sticks, celery and crackers they serve with our salads. They give you all the butter and bacon bits you could possibly want and our steaks are always excellent. If... More

The steaks and baked potatoes are just fine -- just what you come for. The liver concoction and cheese spread that come out at first are not so appealing, but this place doesn't change much. It's an interesting old building out in the country.

Don't look for an elegant atmosphere - cause this is NOT it. Old, single story, dark and situated deep in the woods in the country off of the railroad tracks. And it's only open from about 5:30 to 9:00. --- and it stays packed. Terrific grilled steaks, potato and salad - that's kinda it and not too much more although... More

I took my wife to the Farm House for Valentine's Day --- and as usual, it was dark, quiet, and romantic. We even got to sit by the fireplace. The menu is simple: mostly steaks... with a potato, salad, and a piece of Texas toast. Nothing fancy - but we loved it. Oh yeah, they still bring out a little... More

We just ate here tonight and I put my hand on the bible.... that was the best steak I have ever had. I ordered the 8oz rib eye with mushrooms and a sweet potato. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! The service was superb (ask for Courtney as your server). and.... you must have the farm house pie!
