Huge portions!!!

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... read 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

If you're hungry, this is the place to go, unless you're not fussy about bland and poorly prepared food. I came with a group of friends, the server was friendly, but the food was not very good. I had the fish tacos: a chunk of deep fried (too much batter) fish..no sauce, no guac, only a spoonful of pico and... More

Food used to be good here but has declined on multiple visits. The atmosphere can be nice but some areas are excessively noisy. Service is very slow and below average.

Being a restaurant manager myself I find it very hard to keep all my critiques to myself but this one I'm not holding back. I live locally and decided that on my way home tonight I'd pick up something easy, delicious, and quick. I called up and asked to order take out, the girl at the front counter who is... More

Really cool ambience and cool place. The food is very good and very large sizes. Well priced. Bar looks cool too. Sat outside over the summer. The one downside is the stink of garbage. They need to do something about that. Outside of that, this is a solid place. Food happy hour specials too!

Come here often, mostly for lunch. Has a pleasant view, great smell when they are smoking meat. And nice variety of food to choose from. Always fresh ingredients and generous portions. You will not be disappointed

First time eating there with another couple about 5:30 on a warm September Saturday night. Not too busy at first. Two of us had ribs which were very good with two sides. Two had the lobster soup and said it was tasty with plenty of lobster. One had stuffed haddock which was a large portion and good. One had a... More
