I just got married at Clay Hill Farm! We chose CHF for the gorgeous location, the great food the the packages that allowed us to be worry free for planning our wedding! Rachel and Jennifer the wedding planners, were helpful in guiding us through the sometimes sticky road of wedding details. We were blessed to have fantastic weather, great food, great atmosphere and a ton of fun!!! Whether you choose to get married at Clay Hill or just go for dinner, it's well worth the trip.

I have gone to Clay Hill Farm since I was a little girl…..since then, special dinners, a wedding and last night for my husbands birthday. The food was excellent! The lemon crusted haddock was light and delicious. My husbands lamb chops were cooked to perfection. My ceaser salad, a bit wilted, but nice flavor and the clam chowder thin, but foll of clams. The horseradish mashed were an interesting change from garlic mashed, and we both liked them very much. The service was great,timely and distantly friendly. We had a great table in the dining room behind the bar which I would imagine would be lovely in the fall with the stone fireplace glowing! The building is a bit worn, but still holds the great charm it had since I was young.

We visit Clay Hill every time we go to Ogunquit, Me. It's just a short drive (10 minutes) from town and you arrive at a serene, beautifully maintained property with lush gardens and beautiful Goldfinches feeding outside the many windows that look out onto the lawns.
The service is fast and friendly without being obtrusive. The waitstaff knows the menu so any questions are quickly and accurately answered.
Now for the food. Fabulous. The House Salad with the special balsamic dressing they make in-house is "lick the plate" worthy. We had the duck,which was done to perfection, and the steak, which was perfectly grilled. The side dishes included with the meal were the to die for dijon/horseradish mashed potatoes, and beautifully cooked summer vegetables. Although we weren't sure where we would put it, we split a share worthy portion of creme brulee which was perfection.
Just to show you how fabulous it was we went back later in the week and repeated the same meal. That should tell you something!

Valet parking , beautiful gardens in farm setting, superb pianist and spacious room set the tone for a great dining experience. Their special blueberry mojito is excellent, as is their rhubarb soda made with rhubarb from their garden. Hot rolls are served with lemon poppy seed butter. Diver scallops with caviar are succulent, flavors pop in your mouth. Signature salad with spinach dried cranberries and pistachios in a citrus dressing is simple and fresh. The cheese plate seemed less inspired than the other starters and the piece of blue cheese was disproportionately larger than the other cheeses. Entrees not as good as starters. Prime rib was a little tough and lobster poached in butter was chewy and salmon was slightly over cooked. The side of beans were salty. Creme brûlée was infused with vanilla and bourbon and very good with just fired sugar on top and cool Creme below. Despie food lacking, atmosphere is classic and worth experiencing.
