This restaurant was not worth the money! It's a bit over priced. My Husband wanted to order lobster rolls off the dinner menu & when the waiter came to take our order, the waiter said they were out of lobster, how in the world can you be out of lobster in Maine? Especially so close to the water? Anyhow my... More

Our concerns were quickly eased. I had the steak tips and they were very good. the kids had the "Shark Bites' and ate all... More

Menu was limited, but food was exceptional. We had steak tips and the fish and chips. It arrived hot and perfectly cooked. Restaurant was comfortable and clean. Service was good. Will return.

After seeing some of the previous reviews, we decided to give it a try. The hostess was absolutely clueless and not welcoming. After being told it would be a 30-45 min wait, we watched as at least 2 tables in the bar area sat empty and prepped for about 20 min yet she didn't seat anyone. It wasn't until we... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times previously. The food was excellent, the service was wonderful, and the ales were of high quality. Then I went 2 days ago. What a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! The menu had changed to that of a typical tourist trap and they no longer had their own ales. The prices were average but... More

We were looking for a place for our wedding, and for our wedding dinner. We were looking for a place that would be fun, relaxed, and affordable. Being as this was our second wedding, we wanted to have the actual wedding ceremony and an intimate dinner with 20 family members in a place close to our home without much fuss.... More

Stopped in this past weekend for dinner and sat at the bar. The bartenders remembered us from our visit back in May! They even remembered our conversation! Love the beer choices and the buffalo chicken sandwich with onion rings. Boon Island will always be on our list of go-to restaurants when we are in Wells. Very comfortable atmosphere!

This place was one if the nicest places and one of the best meals we had in the Wells/Ogunquit area. The staff were very friendly. For a family of five there were good options for the kids too. AND in Sunday nights a magician walks around to the tables for slight-of-hand magic tricks. (Don't worry he's not dressed like a... More

I are at Boon Island a couple weeks ago and had a great experience. From the hostess when I walked in, my server and the owner who came to check on my experience. I started off with the clam chowder and then had the cheeseburger pizza. The food was amazing and it was topped off with excellent and friendly service.... More
