Seven family members went to Merriland Farms for a birthday celebration. The waitress was unfriendly and rather unhappy. She stood at the end of the table getting orders which required people yelling over one another. When I ordered a salad with just olive oil and lemon she told me the olive oil was cheap and terrible. And that the chef... More

Saw this highly rated restaurant on Trip Advisor. It is off the beaten path but well worth the search. Beautiful expanded old house in a country setting. Lovely 2 fireplaces were going. Delicious eggs Benedict breakfast on a popover! With nice crinkle cut hash browns. Husband thought his hash omelette was dry but described the place as elegant. Sat on... More

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 real amateur mistake. I sent it back... 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
