My husband and I live in Gray and Cole Farms is pretty much a Gray institution. Very popular with travelers, it's very busy during peak times. Good news: they now offer flatbread pizza (husband often gets that), and have a bar. Other news: we have often wondered why this restaurant was so popular. Menu relies heavily on breaded and fried...

This restaurant is a tired institution. I have eaten here a couple of times. It's depressing to me. It really needs a make over. The food is okay. Staff is friendly though. I'm sure if you're a local it's convenient and you find your favorite dishes. I won't be going back.

I live in Gray and decided to try Cole Farms for the first time. The menu had enough appetizing looking options, mostly sandwiches, burgers and salads. I decided on the reuben sandwich, which was supposed to come with chips and a pickle. When the order came, somehow they were out of pickle spears that day. I was not offered anything... More

I've been here many times. It's always very busy (a good sign!), and has a nice selection of food for a diner. This time I had a salad that had fruit, nuts, and a good mix of local greens. They have everyone from breakfast to Maine seafood. Be prepared to wait as there is almost always a line to get... More

This is a good restaurant with good, nothing out of the ordinary. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. The prices were a little high for average food with nothing special to offer.

Have eaten here for over 30 years. We now live in Florida and come to Maine for summer. One the first things we do when returning is make it to Cole Farms. I read the reviews and am somewhat dumbfounded. I don't know what people expect. It is like that are so ingrained with cookie cutter restaurants they can't deal... More

Not unlike a roadside dairy stand and counter restaurant of the 1950s, this is a fun spot for nostalgia, particularly in the original section. There's a vast variety of foods, including hot beets, chicken salad, burgers, and scallops; the servings are ample and the service is folksy. However, the quality was less than we expected with the scallops probably flash... More
