Friendly Farm Restaurant Review:
The original farmhouse is no longer used as a dining room — the crowds got too big for that — but this old-fashioned restaurant is still located on the family farm. Large windows give onto a view of rolling pastures and plentiful food arrives in heaping bowls to be passed around family-style at non-linen-clad tables. A relish tray, complete with apple butter, cottage cheese and coleslaw, starts the meal. Then comes an entrée — fried chicken, roast beef, crab cakes, broiled pork chops, filet mignon and vegetarian eggplant Parmesan are among the choices — served individually, but with bowls of fresh vegetables, french fries, hot rolls and biscuits on the side. Dessert is a generous scoop of ice cream or sherbet. Baked goods to take away are sold in the lobby, and a barn has been converted into a gift shop. A banquet room, also with fine country views, is available for private parties. Check for menu specials like seafood Fridays and game-day carryout.
