It has been a popular family restaurant for many years. Our grandchildren love to frolic on the beautifully landscaped grounds, pet the farm animals who come up to the fence and ride in the horse-drawn carriage that circles the grounds. Plus they can climb on make-believe bronzed animals and sit on old-time farm machinery.
The newest fun facility is their Americana Barn, which adjoins the lobby. Before entering the barn, you’ll pass through a carriage house displaying antique carriages. The two-story barn has open area for enjoying cocktails and beverages before dinner. Or you can savor a piece of pie and a cup of coffee in the barn after dinner.
In addition to providing old-fashioned fun, White Fence Farm serves up tasty homestyle food at a reasonable price for the grandparents, parents and children. For one price, the waitstaff keeps bringing back freshly-filled bowls of side dishes to go with your choice of entree. Their red kidney bean salad is especially tasty. I especially like their broiled white fish. If you choose chicken for $10.75 per person, pieces of crispy fried chicken are heaped family style on big platters. Other entrees include steak, turkey, fish, shrimp, and pork. Lighter versions of these meals are available to seniors for $6.95.
After eating, you can sit and visit in the beautiful redwood gazebo while the children play or browse through their Country Store.
It’s open for dinner from 5- 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; from noon till 8 on Sundays. Closed Mondays and during month of January. No reservations except for groups of 15 or more. Seating is available about 30 minutes before opening time each day. Call (303) 935 5945. No reservations except for large parties, which can be placed in separate rooms.
