    We stopped here for dinner on the way to a friend's lake house in western maine after a long day of flying from the west coast and eating junk food in airports - so we were ready to sit down and have some good Maine home-cookin'. The ambiance was nice - there was an older lady playing a piano, and a few people at the small bar on the one side of the restaurant - clearly lots of locals. The menu was actually pretty extensive, ranging from what you'd expect (seafood, "comfort" food, burgers) to the not-so-expected (mexican, italian). There was a good kids menu to standard fare, and unlike most restaurants actually offered a kids salad. They had a few beers on tap. I had the fish-n-chips and my wife had the chicken pie. She was happy with hers, and wolfed it down. The fish-n-chips were just "meh" - it was only one medium sized piece of fish and alot of fries. The fish was very tender, but not very tasty and a bit greasy. Overall, it was good, not great. I'd probably try some other places in town before coming back.

    We had a function in the backroom and it served us well. The service was good and we enjoyed ourselves. Menu was diverse and everyone found something they enjoyed; I heard no complaints. I look forward to dinning there in a regular table to see if the service is consistent.

    Spent this afternoon in a Farmington and decided to stop by for lunch. We were disappointed in both the food and service. Our waiter greeted us...took our order 10 minutes later and we did not see him again until our meals were dropped off 47 minutes after we ordered them. My husband and I had our empty drinks sitting at the end of the table for over half an hour. The food was average at best. The BLT on their 'homemade' white bread appeared to be on store bought toast and given the wait we figured the sandwich would be a little better than two slices of broken up bacon with some lettuce and tomato. I hope that others don't share this experience. I think they need more help in both the kitchen and on the restaurant floor for weekend lunches.

    One of my two favorite restaurants in the area but tonight was very disappointing. We went in for dinner and were seated immediately. Twenty minutes later we one came to our table to serve us. Could I have gone back to the hostess and complained? Sure. But I shouldn't have to. Very disappointed tonight.

    We found this little restaurant along the way home back to New York from Sugarloaf. It was the perfect spot to stop at, as there didn't seem to be much of anything else that we were on the road for the hour or so. There are 15-20 tables situated in the large main room and then another ~10 tables situated in the smaller room to the right which is beside the bar. The rooms are bare and simplistic, almost giving you the impression that the establishment is temporary with exception to the bar area. For my breakfast entree, I ordered the Meat Lovers Omelette ($8.59) which is a hearty choice consisting of what felt like 3 X-Large eggs loaded with a generous serving of ham, bacon, sausage, and Vermont cheddar topped with hollandaise sauce. Mmmm. I was amazed at how tasty my omelette was, with just the right amount of meat to make it substantial without being overwhelming. The cheese and hollandaise sauce took it over the top, which I found myself eating every last bit of this delicious omelette. Complimented on the side is a serving of home fries cut in cube-like fashion and choice of their own homemade breads, which I decided to try the Anadama Bread, which is made from cornmeal and molasses. The 4 halves of Anadama Bread were sliced very thick, giving the impression as if I were eating 8 halves of bread. Definitely a hearty meal that will not disappoint. Another added bonus that I did not expect when I asked for hot sauce, was that they also had Sriracha Hot Sauce in addition to Tabasco Hot Sauce. The Sriracha complimented perfectly with my omelette to give it a nice dose of heat. Who would have known that the little town of Farmington with no Asian population, from what I could tell, has a killer hot sauce in stock. Our waitress was very attentive as she refilled our cups of coffee and checked up on us occasionally to make sure everything was great. She even offered to break up our bill 4 ways when we asked for the bill, which was very accommodating. I'd have to say that Homestead Bakery was a definite winner in my book, and will stop by again when in the neighborhood. It's a local restaurant serving fresh local vegetables, freshly baked breads, cakes and pastries, and an eclectic selection of draft beers. With fairly cheap prices, hearty dishes, and great table service, there isn't much to dislike about this place, except for possibly jazzing up the decor of the establishment as it feels far from cozy. A minor nuisance for an enjoyable meal.

  • Chris O.

    I am in love with their breakfast, but dinner service is less than impeccable. I would expect much more from a restaurant that must stand out from the very few in Farmington, but service and food is bland and mediocre.

  • Matt K.

    I opt for non chain restaurants on the road. Food decent and hot. Service was good. $47.00 for two entrees, a starter and two non alcoholic beverages.

  • Lee N.

    Very good home-cooked style dinner, well priced, good place for the family, heard the breakfast was fantastic can't wait to try it

    While in town, my wife and I stopped in for dinner on 12/30/2010 before catching a movie at the nearby Narrow Gauge Cinema. We both attended college at UMaine Farmington and like return to Farmington to visit every once and a while. This restaurant saw major changes around 2004, about the time we moved from Farmington. We enjoyed a few meals here after at the "new" Homestead back then and hadn't been since, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were quickly seated and promptly met by a curt and very unfriendly server. The menu had many options and clearly skews Italian at dinnertime. There were a few pub food options, but neither of us were interested in that. After placing our orders, our server brought us a few slices of some breads that, I assume, had been baked on site. The breads were OK, but they were room temperature. One wonders how difficult it would be to serve it warm as that certainly would have improved the experience. Olive oil for dipping was provided, but our server did not offer freshly ground pepper as other tables had been. First came the Roasted Beet Salad I had ordered, made up of mixed greens, goat cheese, sweetened pecans, beets, and a vinaigrette. Beets are one of the few locally grown vegetables you can get in Maine in January. Unfortunately, the beets were neither local nor roasted as it was clear they were cold sliced beets directly from a can. A more accurate menu listing would be "Canned Beet Salad," but they'll probably have a difficult time getting $8 for that. For an entree, I ordered the Chicken Saltimbocca and my wife ordered the Braised Lamb Shank. Her lamb shank was flavorless. As for my Saltimbocca, the chicken was underseasoned, a bit slimy, and there was no trace of sage to be found. We each were served roasted potatoes on the side, which were underseasoned and undercooked, as well as some mixed vegetables that clearly had been frozen, but were nearly mush by the time they reached our table. Nobody charging around $20 for an entree should ever serve frozen baby carrots. Needless to say, we were disappointed in our experience returning to The Homestead. We'll probably head to The Granary for dinner next time we're in town.

    Great breakfast there yesterday. Nice diverse menu to chose from with nice hot perked coffee to start with.

  • kevin s.

    I've lived in Farmington for about 1.5 years and I've been to the Homestead a few times. I went in January and absolutely loved it. I don't remember what I had, but it was incredible and I totally would go back again for it! However, I recently went here with a few friends on a Thursday night and I ordered sushi. The raw fish was pretty good, but the soy sauce was very high in sodium and made the sushi taste really gross. My advice: don't get the sushi. Go to Zen in Bangor or Green Tea in Bangor and get sushi there. So I am giving this 4 stars based on my past experiences (it would be 5, but it lost a star for the sushi).

  • Kristina M.

    Very diverse menu. We went during the Fire and Ice festival, so it was slightly busy, but I felt the length of time we waited for our food was a little much. I also thought the food was a little pricy for the portion size. I paid $12.00 for a haddock and fries platter which was great tasting, but I'm not sure it was worth $12.00. The food was good, the people friendly, nice atmosphere. Would go there again.

  • Dan S.

    The Homestead has improved dramatically in the two years since I moved to Farmington. It is easily my favorite spot in town now. Steph is a great bartender (ask for a Negroni!), the new Thursday and Friday night Sushi is not only good, but a godsend considering the next closest sushi is at least an hour away. Also, they've replaced the frozen high school cafeteria burgers with real house formed burger patties now, and they are now quite delicious. I've had some other fine new menu items as well: i'm particularly fond of the fish tacos and the gnudi. Even the pizza is pretty darn good. I still would avoid the dining room...the bar is so much for fun and the service is much better as well.

  • Summer B.

    If you can get up and out the door for the breakfast hours (before 11am) this is THE breakfast stop. A quaint diner with charm, class, great baked goods, and the best damn pancakes I've ever eaten.

  • T-Squared S.

    Nice decor in the bakery, bar, restaurant combination. Lunch specials looked appetizing, but I went for the scallops lunch with french fries. GREAT. Fresh, tasty, excellent F.Fries Good service.

  • S G.

    We mostly come here for breakfast and it has never disappointed us. Friendly service and good food, you can't go wrong.

  • Charles L.

    lobster roll!!!!! woooo hooooo!!!!!!

  • Scott L.

    We have eaten here with a group of 5-10 three times over the past two days. Lunch, I had the Cuban and it was stunning. Juicy pulled pork with ham and on a bun that was a perfect match. Dinner I had the haddock Milano and it was yummy. Crispy crust and tender and juicy fish. Green bean side looked great, but not a fan of them. Rice was basmati and tasted great too. Bread and olive oil before dinner was stunning. Others had the chicken parm, veal and baked haddock. Everyone loved their meal. We just finished breakfast and the French toast with REAL maple syrup, delicious. Corned beef was loved by all. All times the service was quick and attentive. Looking at the place one would not expect it to be so good but it is.

  • Merrick L.

    I would have given it 5 stars for the food, but our waitress way snotty and snarky from the beginning. Before we even sat down she was rude about the fact that we needed a table for 8, which required her to put 2 tables together. I'm not sure what the problem was, but we did enjoy the food. My mother had biscuits and gravy and they were amazing. The hash was very good, just a small portion. The Eggs Benedict was just ok to me.

  • Bob S.

    I've eaten here twice; once for a late breakfast and once for a late lunch. (I guess there's a theme there.) For breakfast I had the Thai Wonder Eggs. This is a scramble with broccoli, onion spinach, tomato, green pepper, mushroom, home fries and cheddar. The only thing 'Thai about it' is that is is served with a sweet chili sauce. This is not a complaint, as the combination was quite good. I particularly like the fact that they shred the cheese extremely finely so it really melts into the scramble. It came with a very good raisin toast from the bakery. From 2-4 they have a 'late afternoon' menu with a limited selection of items. I had a pulled pork sandwich, which was served on a brioche roll. The brioche roll is a bit of a cliché, but this particular roll was fairly light. The sandwich was served with some very good French fries. Service was efficient and quick. My water glass and coffee cup were kept full. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in Farmington

  • Brandon W.

    Locally owned, great food and a local atmosphere. For this business traveler, it was the perfect spot to cozy up to the bar, watch some sports on the TV and engage in some small talk. I hope to head back sometime soon... when it's warmer!

  • Jim B.

    Great lunch spot in Farmington. Great selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, including paninis, which I love. They had a Cuban sandwich on the lunch menu, which is rare, if not unheard of, in western Maine. That's what I went with. The pressed sandwich had ample amounts of pulled pork, smoked ham, cheddar, cheese, a pickle, flavorful chipotle aioli, and coleslaw on ciabatta. It was served with fries. The sandwich was terrific, the fries, while crispy, were just OK. The dinner menu looked extensive. They also serve breakfast, too. Downtown Farmington is great, and they still have a locally-owned bookstore, across the street, which is always a plus.

  • Mike G.

    This is a great place with great food and a great atmosphere. There is so much variety and they do a great job with it all. Live music that is classy and appropriate for meals. Great place and a gem in Farmington.
