We had a wonderful time there. the waitress was informative and professional. The food was very good. the atmosphere was great. the only downside was that it wintertime and not late spring... More

I got a Groupon deal on this place and would gladly go back. My appetizer of choice was beer battered pickles with the "secret" house sauce, a barbecue sauce with an interesting white swirl. My entree was the full rack of baby back ribs with sides of mashed potatoes and green beans with a delightful snap to them. I have... More

Bartender was so personable and people there also fun loving great place to hang out.the location is great and in the spring and summer going outdoors makes it more interesting watching the boaters and enjoying the fresh air

I must have gone there on a bad day, food was mediocre at best, service was ok the seating left a lot to be desired. I suppose if I had gone there to drink at the bar and have bar food it may have been ok. The parking was atrocious to say the least. Advice do not go if the... More

If you can find the "Flying Pig" sign, you will strike GOLD. This adorable, charming and great restaurant is tucked away by the river. The deck has stunning views and the the inside is a quaint Farm atmosphere. The house named "Farm Burger" is the best in Dover. Pub style food at a great price! The wait staff is courteous... More

We went to the farm for dinner. We got buffalo tenders for an appetizer expecting the usual 4 tenders. Not here....4 huge tenders, twice the size of usual ones. A neighboring table ordered nachos and they came out stacked about a foot high. The food was excellent and prices were very reasonable especially considering the potions. We will definitely return.

I have been here a few times. If you like BBQ you should absolutely try this place. It does get busy and parking can be tricky but there is a big dirt lot down the hill from the farm. It is quite a hike if you have any issues walking. Portions are large and in the summer the scenary from... More

Meat is the best, and we all had the proper style. Th e onion rings are fantastic. We will be going at least 4 times a year.

Despite empty tables, the hostess directed us to a table in the bar area which is also near the front door and the bathrooms. Not a good start. The servers were made up as cats for the halloween season and the service from start to finish was good. The place is an old barn located along the river but not... More

Pulled pork burrito... Sunday morning Bloody Mary... Awesome Buffalo Tenders... This place is great for a fun night out, or for Sunday brunch. For American soul food it is above the cut, but not exceptional. If you want anything beyond a more classy version of a fun night out, look elsewhere because this is what The Farm is made for....
