We Say:  This is a one of a kind restaurant. The supreme Comfort Food, fun Tavern. It reminds me of the Pubs in England and Ireland. Half Amish ChickenPork Pot Roast Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onion “Soubise”, Bavarian Cabbage, House Cured Lardons, Red Wine Pork Reduction, Spiced Pistachios, Farmhouse Dry Aged Burger  Hoosier Farm 100% Grass Fed Beef, Tomato, Lettuce, Onion, Nueske’s Bacon, Hook’s 3 year Aged Cheddar, Country Style Roll, Tavern Cut Fries, the speciality of the house, Beer Battered Wisconsin Cheese Curds 9 House Made Catsup & Spicy Curd Sauce. There is nothing not to like about this place. Farmhouse Tavern Restaurant is where you come when you can’t figure out where to go.

I had Pork Pot Roast Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onion “Soubise”, Bavarian Cabbage, House Cured Lardons, Red Wine Pork Reduction, Spiced Pistachios, and homemade ice cream for dessert.  Now that was a great meal!

They are open for lunch and Dinner 7 days a week with two locations, Chicago and Evanston. The decor is casual, reclaimed barn wood with the old farmhouse feel. Lots of small little rooms and a large bar. Fabulous service and great food. Most all the Beers are local and regional along with the spirits and wine. Don’t ask for a Miller Lite. All ingredients are local FRESH.

They Say: Farmhouse Tavern is a Midwestern Craft Tavern specializing in local food and drink. We are a farm to tavern restaurant, making all of our own burgers, condiments, and sodas from scratch. And with more than 28 craft beers on tap we are sure you will find something special to wash it all down. We are also one of the first taverns in the country to serve great Michigan wines on tap.

When we began conceptualizing Farmhouse, we knew we wanted to create a space that would complement the Chicago tavern scene, but would provide a slightly different vibe. We began to forge our idea around the great Midwest and, ironically, with a trip to Prime Meats (thanks guys!) in Brooklyn, we began the journey that is Farmhouse today.

Despite the fact that Farmhouse is relatively new to our fair city, our goal was to bring some Chicago history into the space. We salvaged from a furniture factory on the south side of Chicago, found our great Bevador at a mechanic’s shop on the city’s southwest side, and reclaimed pieces from many famous (or infamous) Chicago bars and restaurants (ask your friendly bartender to point them out). We are very proud of the fact that more than 85% of our build-out was done with salvaged materials. Thanks to all of our friends who helped us find these rare and wonderful items. You made it what it is!

Our goal—and Chef Eric Mansavage’s goal—at Farmhouse Tavern is to bring you the best Midwestern craft beer and fare from the best purveyors in the Midwest. In that spirit, we source from the great Green City Market weekly and of course our wonderful midwestern farmers.

See what our friends are saying about us!
