After proposing to my wife of 31 years marriage...32 year ago at Clay Hill, we finally made a return trip back. Why did we wait so long to return? The atmosphere is just as we remembered...quiet, cozy, romantic, and just plain warm & relaxing. The food was incredible as was the service and ambiance. It was just a wonderful time to re-kindle where it all began. From now on, this will be an annual event around our anniversary where we can sit, relax, talk, and enjoy a wonderful meal. Thanks Clay Hill Farm! Keep up the great work and we will see you next February!

Intimate fireside dinner with soft live piano playing in the background from the lounge. A wonderful start to a great weekend with my bride of 48 years. Terrific cocktails and steamed muscles started our experience. We had seafood stuffed haddock and prime rib. Both exceeded expectations. This has been our special place for over 15 years. Thanks for another wonderful evening!

We went out with 3 other couples and had a great meal. Most started with the lobster bisque and it was delicious! Many got the the haddock or the seafood stuffed haddock. Most were very pleased with their meals.

Our dinner at Clay Hill Farm was outstanding. We felt pampered from the moment we arrived until we left-- valet parking, gracious wait staff, quiet piano player and beautiful decor. My husband and I split a ceasar salad, then he had beef shank and I had duck. Both meals provided leftovers. The beef shank was delicious. My duck was fine except for the sweet potato hash which was cubes of mixed root vegetables, partially cooked and not seasoned. All in all, however, we had a wonderful evening and look forward to returning.

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!

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.
