We stopped in for a tasting and lunch. Friendliest tasting staff - always love to try their wines. Lunch was fabulous! Very quick and great service all around.

Completely unexpected what we experienced. From a home town, warm country house feel, the venue and staff provided us with elegant and very generous high quality portioned servings for lunch. Strongly recommend the maple salmon!

This is dependable place to have lunch. The food is always good and reasonably priced. The poutine is fun and changes frequently. Just be aware you the portion is huge so consider sharing.

Since my initial review, I have been back to The Farmhouse on a couple of occasions. Each time the food was as ordered and the service did not disappoint. Although the place was busy every visit, we were never rushed. As stated before, prices are reasonable. And while the place is not as fancy as other places may be, it... More

I had the chicken sandwich and soup and cheesecake for desert. Others people had poutine and we all loved the food. Good service and reasonable prices. Would come back.

Got this recommendation and very glad we did it. Thorough menu and very tasty indeed. Service was prompt and friendly. They were busy when we arrived but accommodated in just a few minutes. You will not be disapointed. Not the same with the winery--but lunch was real good!

We planned our touring to hit this beauty at lunchtime. No mistake about it, this was a highlight of our two days touring Niagara-on-the-Lake Wine Country. Attached to Caroline Cellars this was a one stop adventure. The wines were beautiful, diverse and very flavourful. While we were tasting, a reservation was made in the Farmhouse Cafe. The lunch menu was... More

Went here for lunch, and food was ok, and not priced badly. However, service was terrible. Long wait every time, and the waitress made us feel very unwelcome. Slammed down drinks & plates, never told us the specials, never checked up etc. I eventually had to go look for her when we wanted to leave and haven't seen her for... More
