“Long wait but worth it”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

My husband and I went here on my birthday. They don't take reservations, so when we arrived we were told it would be 1 hour and 45 minutes til we could get a table. We sat at the last two seats in the bar area, which is small. The bartender was very attentive and took great care of us. It was definitely as long of a wait as she said but we weren't in a hurry so we didn't care. We ordered the walleye with mashed potatoes and both were great. The waitress wasn't very friendly but she did bring me a large piece of cake for my bday, no charge. Overall we liked the rustic farm decor and atmosphere and food. I would eat here again if in cedarburg.

“Best in Cedarburg”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

The Farmstead restaurant is always a good choice. The Seven-layer salad is wonderful! The steaks are cooked as ordered and served with a mound of mashed potatoes and peas in the pod. The atmosphere is homey and comfortable. Sometimes you have to wait for a table if you go at prime time, but it is worth the wait.

“Delicious dinner”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Hard to find, but worth the effort. The atmosphere is cozy and softly lit. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and efficient. We knew to arrive early as there are very few tables and they fill up quickly.
We were there at 5:15 on a Thursday, and by 6:00 all the tables were filled. Food is expensive, but delicious. (Note: Avoid sitting in the 2 back-area booths--too close to the bathrooms.)

“Anxious To Go Back”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

We had an excellent meal at Farmstead. Went on a Friday evening so there was a long wait, but the bartenders and staff were so friendly it didn't matter. The dinner was well worth it. The steaks were cooked to perfection and very tender, and our leftovers made great sandwiches the next day. Sides were excellent too. Great waitress, hostess, bartender, everybody.

“Great steaks and seafood!”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Stopped here with my wife for her birthday and had an amazing dinner with wonderful service. Drinks were always filled and food was plenty and delicious.
Every time we stop in the food is cooked to our exact request and we barely have to wait if we have reservations.
You must put this place on your short list for great steaks with great service.
