Still a great place, good food, a little pricey for lunch

We hadn't been to The Farm in a while and decided to go there for lunch. We sat on the covered porch that overlooks the Cocheco River- nice! First thing I noticed is that the music is softer, a big thumbs up as now we can have some conversation as we dine. Our server was prompt with greeting us... read more

was too pricey and not impressed with what we ordered, had a larger party of 6 so they put us in a side room that was more of a porch, felt like we had to go get our own drinks etc. Just too pricey for us for what we are used to getting at other local restaurants

I ate lunch here with my friend on a beautiful Saturday. It's lovely to sit outside looking at the river. The service was quick and attentive. We both ordered the grilled fish tacos. The fish was perfectly cooked but the preparation was odd. There were three large tacos, each in a sort of white wrap rather than a tortilla. The... More

This was my second trip to The Farm. Service was fine, the ladies were friendly and helpful. The food, however, was mediocre. We all had barbeque items. The pulled pork was somewhat dry, the ribs over sauced, and the half chicken could have done quite nicely without the maple and bacon. The steak tips were lovely. The prices for the... More

Great cheap (inexpensive) food, big portions. Food is consistently wonderful. Fun in any season with an outdoor patio facing the river and a nice wood stove in winter. But the staff......after 7 years in Dover I still can't understand how they find such cute, responsible, charming wait staff. OK, so I'm older but these kids are adorable.

This is our second time to the farm. Our waitress Emily was very nice. The atmosphere is great, overlooking the Cocheco river. Unfortunately the kitchen over cooked the burger we ordered, however the Tuna volcano (seared tuna and seaweed salad was awesome). My girlfriend loved the tequila sunrise sangria, and I guarantee the burger would have been awesome if cooked... More

The location is right by the river, the place is all wooden style with a nice big patio for the good season. Do not expect nothing fancy, elegant, or special service.... but the food is average and portions are huge. Prices actually are kind of high, in my opinion, for the quality that I have tasted, but still ok. Just... More

My wife and I decided to try for lunch as it is been a little while since we've been here. We were welcomed in and seated. Everyone was very pleasant. We both ordered appetizers of chicken tenders and fried zucchini. When they arrived at our table the portions were huge, and both dishes were delicious. I will return.

This is a hidden treasure is Dover a little off the beaten path it was worth finding it. The fish is just great and you have enough for a doggie bag. Gets better each time we dine.

We have always enjoyed our dining at the Farm Resaurant until tonight. Our waiter Bill was terrible, inattentive and more interested in talking with people behind the bar discussing march madness. He appeared totally stoned or on drugs when he arrived at at the table. When he delivered our salads he dropped my husbands extra dressing, and said he would... More
