Found this location as we were traveling from Chicago to Indianapolis and being an old farm boy we just had to stop. Stopped only to eat and not do the other “attractions” which seemed expensive.

The restaurant was very good. I haven’t had as good of a pork tenderloin since we moved out of Indiana in the mid-80’s. Their Indiana Breaded Pork Tenderloin was HUGE. It had good flavor and was well cooked without being dried out. The fries and slaw was also good. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich which she enjoyed. Our server was Abby T who was attentive and efficient.

Even if you shouldn’t see the other attractions, the restaurant is worth a stop all on its own. We would definitely stop here again!!

My sister and her husband from AZ took us there for my birthday. My husband ordered a $35 steak dinner which he was charged $65. The steak was grizzly and half fatty. He tried to complain but was ignored by the waitress who was more interested in my sister greasy fish and chips. He mentioned when she brought the bill and she said it was too late to complain. Worst dinner ever. WAs given a certificate for $20 but we will not go back after such poor food and rude service.

We had a very nice lunch here while on our farm tour. Excellent bacon cheese burger with local beef, bacon and cheese. Our table also tried the tenderloin and a daily sandwich special. All were good. Good sides as well. This would be a good destination in and of itself.

My husband and I stopped in on our way home from Chicago. We have stopped by fair oaks several times in the past to get gas but had never gone the the restaurant there, and we won’t be back. We ordered the cheese curds to start (thinking they would be amazing since it is all “farm to table”) but they were dry and had no flavor. Then we got a couple burgers from their own raised beef. They were also flavorless and just not good. The only thing I will say is that they had $2 mimosas on a Saturday which were good. Our waitress was unattentative and kind of rude. We had high hopes for this place but it just stunk. Disappointed.
