A friend and I visited last year and had a delightful Sunday brunch sitting on the back deck. It was unusual but we intend to go back this year when in Maine.

Thought the hype about farm to table would be realized. Not sure what farm or whose table. Pretty expensive for not so much.

Why not try the interesting recipes using locally sourced ingredients? This is not your typical cafe. If you plan ahead or get lucky you can dine on the back deck with a great view of Rockport Harbor.

This is a very interesting place. There is a small patio with a gorgeous view and we were there on a beautiful day so we enjoyed being outdoors. There is a large indoor area with a long bar which also looked nice. The service is...More

The menu is inspired. The room is curated so flawlessly "farm to table chic". The proprietress has had countless fawning profiles written about her Brooklyn to Maine journey. But the experience falls short because the pursuit of perfection is prioritized about customer service. We started...More

Opened in April of 2013, Salt Water Farm Restaurant & Cafe in Rockport's stately Union Hall provides locals, tourists and sailors alike with fresh, local options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus a comfortable bar six days a week, with brunch on Sunday. The experience and creativity of the staff and the vision of owner Annemarie Ahearn translate to inspired farm-to-table versions of traditional dishes, like clams bagna cauda, and seasonal highlights such as wild mushroom gravy with biscuits or a vine-ripe tomato salad. If you live in Rockport, lucky you; if not, here's a reason to visit. (Source: Portland Press Herald - Sept. 20
