Farm House Restaurant

It was time for lunch and since we generally don’t eat breakfast when we have a longish drive ahead of us, we were getting hungry.  We’d just crossed the Florida/Georgia State line so we checked out the exits and what they might have to offer hungry travelers…

This is the Farm House Restaurant in Lake Park Georgia.  We could see from I-75 that this restaurant was popular…  We decided to give it a try.

The interior of the Farm House Restaurant was spacious and the main dining area was packed.  Given the “farm house” connotation, we figured that the menu would consist of down home comfort food.  FYI, there is a small gift shop at the front of this restaurant as well.

We ended up in this side dining area.  Even this room was almost full… FYI, the art along the walls is for sale.

Our waitress started us out with this basket of corn muffins.  They were average at best…a bit too dry for our taste.

The menu is expansive but we both went for one of the Farm House Specials.  Laurie ordered fried chicken with stuffing, green beans and mashed potatoes with gravy.  She thought that her meal was OK but the green beans seemed like they came from a can.

I also went for the fried chicken.  It was good but not great.  My sides were greens, stuffing and dumplings.  (Classic southern meat and 3) The greens and dumplings were average but I didn’t care for the stuffing… The pimentos in it ruined the stuffing for me. (Of course, pimentos are a southern standard!) 

Our waitress was not the greatest… She was friendly enough but she wasn’t very efficient.  It took forever to get our check so we could get back on the road.  Still, it’s hard to beat the price for our meals. (Only $8.49 each!)

We would term Farm House Restaurant as a safe and clean ‘fuel’ stop.  This restaurant is located at 5123 Mill Store Road (Exit 5) off of I-75 in Lake Park Georgia.  Phone: 229-559-5445.  They are open daily from 7 AM to 7 PM.  I couldn’t find a website or Facebook page for this restaurant.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Take Care, Big Daddy Dave


  1. oh well.... anyway you eat good food. But I think you wait much more.For me the waitress is important too !

  2. Good Afternoon Big Daddy Dave, Oh what a shame, when you have travelled so far and are hungry and ready for a scrumptious meal, you are served with disappointing food.
    My daughter used to live in Atlanta before she moved to India and I remember we were driving to the north of Florida to celebrate my mother's birthday. We were hungry and stopped at one of the motorway restaurants... now I have a sweet tooth, but my word the food was very sweet and that was the savoury dishes. On the other hand, I have to say, I have never eaten fried chicken like they serve it in the South, it was amazing. Even my mother, Phyllis, who was 80 years at the time, raved about southern fried chicken.
    There is nothing like good food.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Best Wishes

  3. It can be disappointing when both the food and the service is not very good. And I agree, Dave, the green beans on Laurie's dish definitely look like canned, certainly not fresh. Thank you so much for sharing.

  4. Dear Dave, It is disappointing to anticipate a real good fried chicken dinner and not deliver on it. Canned beans are not excusable! The chicken does not look delicious. All my best. Catherine
