My family has been coming here for many years. The fried chicken continues to be among the best you will find. The family style sides are really tasty and complement the meal nicely. The restaurant itself is interesting with its many separate rooms and displays of antiques. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas while we were there. Highly r commended.

I have probably visited White Fence Farm 20 times over the years remembering my parents taking our family there celebrating my First Communion! Fast forward some 40 years and I still love it! There is no better chicken anywhere! Quality, quantity, and taste are all top notch. Unique decor, please don't change a thing. I can't wait to bring my... More

This is a great restaurant to have large groups. Our group was well taken care of and appreciative of the hard working wait staff. The food is very old school.

I would give it 5 stars for the uniqueness of the restaurant, but it seemed like one of those places that might have been really cool 20 years ago, but not so much now. The food was just average and a little over priced. Not a place I would return to. But it might appeal to a much older crowd.

We go back to White Fence Farm about once a year, for over 40 years. The meals are pleantiful and tasty. We especially like the multiple side dishes that come with the entre and potato choice. We had the fried chicken this time and it was great. We brought most of it home.

This is always a great option. Food is fresh, and delicious. Only have dined there once.. It's an old world feeling inside with many vintage items to view. Service is friendly and efficient. One must try the corn fritters!! Not for the diet conscious..

Let me start by saying that the food is very good and the portions are large. That said, I am not the target customer. The decor, staff, and menu offerings are clearly for an older clientele. The dining rooms are a little drab and out dated and the showcase area is quaint. That said, the chicken and sides are excellent.

Over all food was good, but my wife ask for only white meat and White Fence does not allow changing the menu. Whereas Applewood will, but charge you $2.00 more. The $2.00 is worth it, happy wife , happy life. There gravy looked greenish and moved like Jell-O. I did taste it and can not describe what the heck it... More

The original owner of this long time favorite in the Southwest Chicago Suburbs found a way to cook fried chicken in large batches and bring it to the table just like it came from the fryer. The corn fritters are almost like having a desert, they are that good. Their other hidden gem is their fish and shrimp, just as... More
