There was nothing to dislike about this wonderful restaurant set in a magical setting of trees, flowers, birds and birdhouses. That was just the beginning as we approached. The dining room was so quiet and serene, the wait staff just about as attentive as I have experienced. Our meals were the duck dish and the game hen dish. The highlight... More

This is a beatiful setting located on a quiet country road. The restaraunt is spacious and surrounded by well maintained grounds that are a natural preserve. The staff is friendly and our meals were very tasty and the portions are generous. However, it all comes with a price. Expect to pay about $60 per person (including tip) if you order... More

This was my first time at Clay Hill. We vacation at Drakes Island the last 4 years and just never made it. Even though we had heard good things. Our experience was made by the two person team waiter and waitress . They were exceptional. The food was very good and the dining room just okay. We will go back... More

If you read my first review from June 2014 I would think you would have rushed to make a reservation. Hold on! I know that folks have different expectations and experiences. There are lots of variables that enter into one's experience. That being said, our second visit was disappointing on two accounts: service was slow and inattentive; after meal arrived... More

If you want a romantic, quiet, out of the way location with great ambiance and fantastic food and drinks, this is the place to go. From the blueberry mojito, to the wonderful spinach salad, the homemade bread, the wonderful entrees, especially the lamb and the seafood stuffed haddock, you can't go wrong with this restaurant.

This should have been fine dining, but it lacked that certain something. I ordered fresh gnocchi, expecting tender potato pasta. The sauce was superb, but the gnocchi was chewy, reminding me of frozen pasta from the grocery store. The popovers arrived overdone. It wasn't overly busy, so I'm unsure why the food was so disappointing. However, the raspberry rhubarb crumble... More

For the past 5 years, my friends and I have spent a week on vacation in Ogunquit, Maine. During our recent trip, our innkeeper suggested we try Clay Hill Farm, for dinner. He suggested for an appetizer, to try the lobster bisque. He did suggest to not have a heavy lunch, because the bisque and everything else, are served in... More

I have gone to Clay Hill Farm since I was a little girl…..since then, special dinners, a wedding and last night for my husbands birthday. The food was excellent! The lemon crusted haddock was light and delicious. My husbands lamb chops were cooked to perfection. My ceaser salad, a bit wilted, but nice flavor and the clam chowder thin, but... More
