Plank Road Steak House in downtown Farmville, NC brings small town history and elegant dining together in a delightful setting your whole family can enjoy. Our goal is to provide a lovely dining experience for you, your friends and your family with fresh food, spirits, and an accommodating staff. Plank Road Steak House is housed in one of Farmville’s older buildings and has undergone a total restoration. With original exposed beams, floors and brick walls, a relaxing atmosphere is set within the main dining room, a private dining room, and bar area.
The bar is constructed of reclaimed wood from Globe Hardware in Greenville. A back courtyard gives you the option of outdoor dining. Original uses of the building, which date back to 1915, include Baugh and Little Wagon Shop, Farmville Laundry & Cleaners for over 45 years and more recently, Joyner’s Dress Shop. The name selection of the restaurant resulted from a commitment to Farmville’s history and North Carolina heritage. The Plank Road route from the Tar River Port in Greenville to Wilson came through the southern part of Farmville. The Old Plank Road was constructed in 1851 and was built of flat, level wooden planks that greatly facilitated travel and trade in Pitt County until it fell into disrepair in the 1860s.
