Was better the first time - Amateur in the Kitchen this time.

The meal was bad, it was extremely dissapointing in comparison to our last visit. You can't get a short stack of pancakes. Also, the eggs were supposed to come out medium poached for an Irish Benedict. The hash was good, the eggs were a real disappointment. It is surprising since this was a... read more

This is a wonderful "home" type restaurant. A very old colonial house converted to an eatery. You might be able to guess the age by the huge red oaks surrounding the property. For such a small place the menu is extensive & varied. Many dishes here you'd never see anywhere else. I ordered French toast with blueberries (fresh) and stuffed... More

This is a great place for a relaxed lunch. We came here several times over the summer and really enjoyed it. The service was a little slow at times, but the food was excellent. The portions are huge... I loved the tomato parmesan bisque!

Merriland Farm Cafe is the most consistent restaurant in the area. My husband and friends go there often for lunch and it never disappoints. The food is made with the freshest ingredients, and is always tasty and comes out of the kitchen hot. Give it a try when your visiting Kennebunk or Wells. This is a local favorite.

The service staff needs more training. We sat at the bar for breakfast on a somewhat busy Sunday morning. The bar was dirty (sticky with dust, which left visible remnants on the white paper napkin which i dragged across the table) We politely asked the server to clean the table . She promptly returned with a wet cloth which she... More

Breakfast at Merriland Farm Cafe was a lovely start to the morning. So warm and cozy inside with a fire going, and friendly staff. The Belgain waffle with strawberries and whipped cream was a treat to enjoy and the cottage fries are a must get! The prices are on the higher side, but there are many options and everything really... More

Hidden gem that you should find for generous portions and different options! Large groups are challenging to accommodate, but if you are flexible and patient you are in for a treat!

Food is great! Service is great! Good variety for both breakfast and lunch. Great setting on a country road overlooking a beautifully cared for golf course. Never a long wait, and well worth any wait. Recommend to your friends! We do all the time and no one has been disappointed.

Had an enjoyable visit here with the family. The food was good...however, their cottage fries and sweet potato fires were not a hit and it was not just at our table. I would recommend the owners/chef explore another option. I had the special for breakfast which was a raspberry peach bake...it was a stuffed French toast. It was very good... More

When the weather is nice, you cannot beat the outdoor dining at Merriland Farm Cafe. Many of the lunch items are really good ... for example, there's a crepe stuffed with scallops and a maple-flavored sauce and bacon that's sinfully delicious ... and the sweet potato upcharge sides are well worth it. Went for breakfast with my mom for a... More
