We left Gorham NH, in the morning and decided to drive awhile before stopping for lunch. Stopped in Gray, Maine for gas and asked where was a good place to eat. He said Cole Farm, one mile down the road. The parking lot was filled. I ordered the Chicken basket (4 pieces) only ate the two large one and split... More

Sat at the counter alone. Service was slow and very confusing. The specials on the board look like a 2 year wrote them. I order an appetizer fried green beans ,they were very greasy and I put them aside. My hot chicken sandwich was dry and the gravy look like wallpaper paste. The manager was very nice and she replaced... More

My husband has been coming here for 30yrs and we stop here whenever we are in town. Sadly, the home cooking has been replaced by store bought frozen items. For example, the meatloaf use to be a staple and was super fresh. Now, my husband says it tastes like a hungry man Salisbury steak. Miss the old cole farm classics!!... More

from what I could see it's kind of dirty in the kitchen, the place isn't that clean.. Also you may have to wait a long time..

We went here for a family breakfast and not at all impressed. It took us 15 minutes to get a server to come to our table for coffee. The food is a buffet, however hotel continental at best. Some of the food you can tell is purchased, or previously frozen. The hash browns lacked flavor, the French toast was chewy,... More

This restaurant is an icon! I hadn't been there in over 35 years & it hasn't changed much...still cozy, friendly wait staff & good food. Lobster stew was delicious, Reuben very good and the shrimp basket a good meal. Don't forget to take home dessert!

Vast menu, fun server, good lunch food, and tasty dessert. Had never known about this restaurant, but a friend from Maine suggested we have lunch there. I had a great fish chowder and fried clam burger, followed by strawberry rhubarb pie. Yum!

This is a Gray institution, hiring local kids for generations. It's simple food, not terribly expensive. Watch for their daily specials. This place is almost always busy.
