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....

First time visiting but absolutely excellent experience. We shared the BarBQue plate, little bit of chicken, little bit of beef short ribs, little bit of pork ribs and little bit of pilled pork with nice and creamy mashed potatoes. Also, had a salad, dessert and drinks. The salad was huge, the dessert was rich and the drinks were really nice.... More

All of the food is delicious here! Quaint rustic surroundings & an excellent staff! They had seating indoors as well as outdoors right off the water. Parking is a bit tricky but worth it. Nice beer selection & good prices! A must try while you are here.

My daughter, a student at UNH, introduced me to this spot. There was a wait and it looked underwhelming. Once seated, it was anything but. As a result, I've been back 2 times since! The service is solid, the food delicious and the outside deck on a nice day is wonderful! Don't miss this spot...even if you can only snag... More

We stumbled upon this hidden gem along the river, having not an idea as to the treat we were in for. Proof that an adventurous spirit comes in handy! We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the river traffic as much as we enjoyed watching the variety of diners and wait staff. We were very pleased with the menu... More

Came for my wife's birthday with our son and my parents. The food was good and the service was excellent. They had some decent craft beer on tap. Very friendly waitresses, a kids menu was available and crayons and pictures to color. We will definitely be back!

I went 7-29-16 around 4pm and they were having happy hour all apps were half price which was awesome. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly, the food came out in a timely fashion and again the food was great. I... More

Great pub food, seafood selections, and fun cocktails. The Farm is often very busy but wait times are not bad. A great place for chilling out with friends after work, or for families.

On a nice day you can sit on the deck with a great views of the river. The food was excellent - our server, Jeremiah, was fantastic. We will definitely return the next time we're in the area.

We put our name in at 6:30 for a party of 7 and we were told a 40 minute wait. After waiting an hour and 10 minutes I asked where we were on the list. The hostess shuffled through papers and finally found our name....it was obvious she forgot about us. We finally got sat after waiting for an hour... More
