There really isn’t anything not to like at Farmhouse Tavern. You feel like you are in a shabby chic farmhouse with details like the rustic stain glass windows, exposed brick, mix and match chairs, and copper wire lights. Most of the decor is salvaged from around Chicago. The service is very welcoming and very good at helping you make the tough decision of which dish and beverage you should pick. Last but not least, the food is fresh, fresh, fresh.
Everything is either house made or sourced from local farms in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin. “Farm-to-table” is definitely a trend but the food here actually tastes like it just came off the farm. They have a huge craft beer selection and get this, Michigan wine on tap. I had a house made cucumber and basil soda and it was refreshing with the perfect balance of savory and sweet.
