The atmosphere is definitely casual informal at the same time. The lobster bisque is excellent. The drinks, service and everything to do with the meal was wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a group occasions and nice environment to catch up in.

The food was very good, tasty and beautiful presentation. Fresh oysters, lobster and fish all delicious. Pretty varied menu which should allow anyone to find something to their liking. Issues were spotty service and decor that needs updating. Our server introduced herself and explained that they use a "team approach" but other than her taking our order and another guy... More

This is truly the best restaurant in Maine. The shrimp cocktail was so fresh. Then it was followed by fresh arugula and watermelon salad. My main course was steamed and grilled lobster with mussels. Finally the desert was creme brulee. The service was perfect and so worth the trip.

This is little way out of town perhaps a 10 minute drive. Service was excellent and food excellent. Others in party had fish dishes all of which were reported to be very good. I had the steak for a change of pace. One of the best pieces of meat I've had in long time and cooked to perfection. This is... More

Food good and service very good. Too old fashioned. The place needed a fresh look. If you like the feel of going back in time, then this is a good option.

We went to Clay Hill Farm Restaurant for dinner during our vacation. Overall a very pleasant experience. Personally I rated it as a 4, but I imagine many might rate it as a 5. But I have high standards for a 5. The menu was good, but fairly traditional. We are in an age of fine dining with so much... More

Off the beaten path, worth the trip out of town. We enjoyed our meal, the atmosphere and the setting. The have a good and varied menu. We enjoyed the meal and highly recommend a night out in a quieter setting and old school style of dining.

Always worth a visit for any occasion. We have only been a few times but each time the service and food is great. My man loves his red meat and here the steak is quality cooked to perfection. We have to get back to sample the summer menu and hopefully outside seating. Looks like there is a nice spot but... More

Having been to many of the restaurants in the Ogunquit area after going there for 8 years, I have moved this restaurant to the top of my list when looking for a special dining event - service, atmosphere, and food were all first class! Loved the piano playing in the background by a REAL piano player and not piped in... More

Friends from Kennebunk recommended this restaurant and we were not dissapointed. Valet parking , met at entrance and escort d to our table. Staff introduced and off we went on a gourmet selection. oysters with pomegranate dressing to the smoked cod and finally lemon creme brûlée . If you haven't eaten here then your missing a treat.
