Poland, Gray area of Maine

We'll be in Gray, Maine this weekend to help a friend celebrate her 50th birthday. Looking for a casual, inexpensive restaurant with a varied menu as she doesn't like any kind of fish or seafood. Not willing to drive more than 30 minutes (one way).

  1. You've probably already celebrated, but just to throw my two cents in, we usually go to Cole Farm's when we're in Gray.

    Good New England food in a casual environment. Really excellent desserts. Love their Indian Pudding. It feels like a throw back to an earlier time.

      Oops, I meant next weekend. I did find Cole Farm's website and wondered if it's as good as it sounds. Thanks for the endorsement. My friend is all about home cooked, comfort food so I think she'll love it!

        Do let us know what you think! My family is all Mainers going way, way back and they love Cole Farms. (And I mean it about the Indian Pudding...mmm, hard to beat with a scoop of ice cream...).

    2. I'll second Cole Farms. A great New England eatery. I'll go an hour out of my way when I'm in Maine to eat there.

        Great! Now she's decided she'd rather "hunker in" with a home cooked meal so we can drink! Oh well, another time.............especially the Indian pudding-yum!
