Originally built in 1780 as a working farm, Clay Hill Farm is now a 220-seat restaurant and special occasion venue nestled amidst 11+ acres of rolling lawns, protected woodlands, and colorful gardens. Tranquility waterfall brooks, a pond, two generous garden-view decks and a picture-perfect gazebo, now accent the traditional Maine beauty of the original working Farm. With modern cuisine in a classic setting, Clay Hill Farm has become a popular dining destination in a country escape just 2 miles West of Ogunquit village. With a passion for seasonal and locally-sourced food supporting Maine growers, Clay Hill Farm has won numerous local, regional and national awards for food, ambiance and service. Voted #1 on the Seacoast for weddings & romantic dining.

Beautiful Choice for New Year's Eve. The food was above average. Mussel appetizer was excellent! We were seated in front of the roaring fireplace, definitely the best seat in the house! The wait staff were wonderful, attentive and helpful. The bartender was the best! The only negative I would mention was the hostess. She seemed inexperienced and a bit flustered. Overall a wonderful and special night!

We had a most wonderful time❤️Our waitstaff was marvelous, fun, funny, professional and very attentive!!! We also met a group of wonderful people that have been celebrating New Year’s Eve at Clay Hill Farm for many years and we hope to come back next year to join them with celebrating New Year’s Eve 2018!!!
Cannot express strongly enough about the whole evening! It was perfect! Even at the very end of the night when my niece asked for a menu to put in her scrapbook, one was found and given to her with a smile❣️Thank you for our memories, and helping us start 2018 out on the right foot.

Was very disappointed. This was our 18th wedding anniversary. We requested the room with the fireplace, where we have come for the last few years, and we were NOT seated in that room, and were not recognized as celebrating our anniversary. We will go somewhere else next year.

Stayed at the Cliff House for 2 nights. First night we ate in and second day we went to Clay Hill. The farm was the far better dining experience, and certainly a better value. Great night out.

We dined at Clay Hill Farm for Christmas Eve. The decor was festive and appropriate for the season and the live piano music added a lovely touch. All of the staff was friendly and in the holiday spirit. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The only down side was the backup for valet parking and no opportunity to self park.

The occasion was Dinner and Entertainment celebrating Christmas. The venue, Clay Hill Farm Restsurant serving up a five star menu including Apple Cider Carmelized Salmon with Brussels Sprouts and Roasted Potatoes and Lemon Crusted Broiled Haddock over Sautéed Spinach and Risotto - the choices at our table - absolutely to die for! The one man show “A Christmas Carol” lyrics and music by Nancy Day and starring Kirk Simpson local seasoned actor and quintessential storyteller captivated and engaged the audience. Kirk brought the audience back in time and into the story - a delightful journey.
For an enchanting evening comprised of haut- cuisine, personalized service, relaxed ambiance and Broadway quality entertainment, Clay Hill Farm in Cape Neddick is “the” place to be!

My husband and I went for our anniversary and it was a lovely experience. The food was fantastic, and the staff very friendly and accommodating. It was the perfect way to spend our anniversary evening. The live music was beautiful. All in all a wonderful evening thanks to CHF.

Disappointing entrees and indifferent service. Chairs on casters were too low and uncomfortable. Decor is dated though the setting in the woods is magical. The only vegetarian entree was barely edible. One of the beef entrees was quite overcooked. We won't be back.
