The Farmer Brown Restaurant is family owned and operated. The restaurant has been in business since May of 2003.

Our journey began in 1986 when “The Just Ice Cream” trailer was created. In 1993, the “Farmer Brown” sandwich was created, and due to the success of the trailers at the “Great Darke County Fair” the Farmer Brown Restaurant was built in 2003.

While the Farmer Brown sandwich is the most popular item on the menu, there is a wide variety of gourmet sandwiches, subs, pizza, and salads.

We also offer hand dipped ice cream and specialty treats such as fudge brownie ala mode, pecan royale, toasted coconut treat, and banana splits.

Enjoy the taste of the 20’s with an old fashioned shake, malt, soda or orange sherbet slush.

We are committed to serving quality food at a reasonable price in a smoke free environment. Come join the farmer for lunch or dinner! Dine In or Carry Out.

I got hooked on the Farmer Brown at Eldora. Have a few every time I'm there! Visited the restaurant for the first time today, and I'll definitely be back!

Wonderful little place tucked away near Arcanum. The farmer brown sandwich is fantastic, and their ice cream is terrific.

Drove an hour just to try it out. Good food and got to meet and talk to Mr Brown. Great guy. Will have to go back and try other sandwiches and subs.
