A.C. Petersen Farms Restaurant Review: A.C. Petersen Farms makes all of its ice cream, as well as sorbet and frozen yogurt. Upwards of 40 varieties are routinely available on a rotating basis. Try out-of-the-ordinary flavors such as Razz Oreo, Crushed Ginger, Grape Nut or Peppermint Stick. A number of tempting stir-ins only add to the array, and sundaes and three-scoop milkshakes are the stuff of memorable celebrations. Rich, creamy, cold treats are definitely the star of the show, but this local landmark is also a budget-friendly spot to dine. Breakfast is served all day, and lunch and dinner offerings range from fair to just-like-mom-makes. Breakfast items include everything from ham and eggs to waffles and pancakes. For lunch or dinner, you'll find burgers, sandwiches and salads, and hearty dinner entrées include roasted turkey, fish ‘n’ chips or steak. For a taste of New England, try the clam chowder or clam roll. There is outdoor dining when weather allows. Be prepared to wait a bit when the place is bustling, usually on weekends. The décor, evoking a 1950s hash house, gives the restaurant some unassuming charm, while the affordable prices certainly increase the allure for families.
